Jeremy Cowart - The Purpose Hotel and the art of showing up before you're ready
Jeremy Cowart - Getting Past “I Can’t” to Change Yourself and the WorldWe all have amazing ideas. Some are hard earned while others just come to us while we are walking down the hall on one unexpected day. But to make those ideas a reality, we need to get past the “I can’t moment” that invariably follows.On today’s Inside Influence Podcast episode I talk to Jeremy Cowart, celebrity photographer, artist, and entrepreneur, about how fear lies on the other side of great ideas and how he has learned to get past those fears. Jeremy Cowart has been named the “Most Influential Photographer on the Internet” by Huffington Post, Forbes and Yahoo. He has presented at TEDx and the United Nations. His photos have appeared in well-known publications such as Time Magazine, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and Sports Illustrated. He has taken portraits of stars such as Taylor Swift, Sting, Britney Spears, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Heidi Klum, and Gwyneth Paltrow. He is also well-known for his “Purpose Hotel” Kickstarter campaign. The aim of the project is to create a hotel chain where all the goods, services, and decor used generates a financial benefit for the marginalised around the world. A luxury hotel designed to connect people around the world to the stories of others - and enable them to support.Today’s Guest Jeremy CowartJeremy grew up in Hendersonville Tennessee. He was a struggling student who seemed to fail at everything from piano to maths. “I can’t do it” was his motto. But his supportive parents were insistent that he could do anything: “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me”.Then he discovered a love of drawing and started to believe in himself.After high school, his parents suggested that he study graphic design. But he did not feel smart enough to use computers. But he tried it and ended up becoming a designer and then a digital photographer right as digital photography was taking off.Fast forward over 20 years, and he is an influential photographer to the stars and renowned social entrepreneur. In addition to his photographic work, he helped start the global movement Help Portrait, founded an online learning platform See University, formed an idea development community called LIMINAL Society, invented a new digital photographic technique called Lightograph, and is founder and CIO of Purpose Hotel.He has also written four books and is a sought after presenter.Website: www.jeremycowart.comFacebook: www.facebook.com/jeremycowartTwitter: www.twitter.com/jeremycowartInstagram: www.instagram.com/jeremycowartLinkedIn:www.linkedin.com/in/jeremycowart“I think a lot of people want to help but a lot of times they just don’t know how … but when you can align helping with people’s natural passions and interests, magic can happen.” “I have pursued over 75 different ideas and probably more than half of them have been total utter failures, or I have abandoned them altogether.
