As content creators, we create lots of work for ourselves as well as for others. It's necessary to have backups of your work.

"Vulnerability minus boundaries is not vulnerability," argues Brene Brown. Much of her work explores what true vulnerability looks like.

I've been on a war path against creative fear. I see it in evidenced in so many people, including the people I know. It restricts them so much and prevents them from making the art they want and audiences deserve. Even advice from well meaning friends can actually be masked as creative fear. This episode is my war cry to you to stop and say f#c* cr…

Many people I observe in life and on social media seem to view life through a binary lens—this or that. I don't understand why when 2 things can be true at the same time. In this episode I reflect upon this notion and why it's important, especially as artists, to understand this. After listening, kindly feel free to ask questions or offer opinions …

Recently I saw Hulu's We Work documentary (full title: We Work Or The Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn) and it made me consider why some noble ideas and causes end up going horrible. Or worse, become harmful to its employees and possibly society. This is the question I explore in this episode. I also use examples such as NASA and Church…
 
I know people who complain because they send out so many inquiries to people yet never get a positive response. And the #1 reason I see this happening once we examine it, is because what they send out is generic. It's a template they've created and they just change the name at the top. Who receiving this is going to react well to this? Would you? P…

When I was younger, as a filmmaker I thought that once a project the entered pre-production phase, no further revisions were needed of a script. That's false.

It's true — sometimes you need to hear a message multiple times for it to really sink in.

That's what I discuss in this episode. I also tie in a lesson from Tim Fe…

While Clubhouse is a fantastic app, the only downside is a lot of those wonderful conversations on it aren't heard. This is because those not live in the room when it happened aren't able to hear them. That's because Clubhouse doesn't natively allow you to record the discussions. But there is a way to do it. In this episode I show you how I do it. …
