There Is No Try With Dave Acosta

Read more

Tired of all the “woo-woo” floating around in the self-help and personal development space? Have you ever listened to these podcasters and rolled your eyes are the grand sweeping statements they make that have very little actionable steps?

This podcast is about the nitty gritty journey of becoming a better business person, improving your station in life and generally succeeding in whatever endeavor you are attempting. We speak about the steps it takes, in detail, to achieve the results you want. We will talk about everything from growing up in a rough childhood to building your own business. But be warned this podcast isn’t for the fainthearted. We will dispel many of the self-help tropes and will speak from experience. None of those mindless tropes and broad-sweeping generalities here. This is for people who need to get things done.

Facts over feelings and experience over theory is our mantra.

Life is not a motivational poster.

Episode #136: Victor Dandridge Jr. (Vantage:Inhouse Productions, U Cre-8 Comics) / Dave Acosta (Comic Artist, Elvira, Twelve Devil's Dancing) - Recorded at C2E2 2019

Read more
On Fresh is the Word, we like to deliver wisdom through great stories from the minds of bright creatives of pop culture. Through those stories, we like to dissect the journey of our guests and present actionable lessons and advice for our listeners no matter what career or avenue of artistry they pursue.

This episode is also a two-parter, both recorded at this years C2E2 convention in Chicago. First, we have the return of the "hardest working man in comics", self-publishing creator from Columbus, Ohio, Victor Dandridge Jr., and then I talk with comic book artist known recently for his work on the Elvira comics on Dynamite Entertainment and Twelve Devil's Dancing, Dave Acosta.

During my chat with Dandridge, we talked about his recent Kickstarter campaign for his U Cre-8 Comics brand that was able to raise funds to bring innovative programming and pop cultural engagement to the classroom for 3000 students in Central Ohio, how comics uplift the community and create a purpose for young creators, the next phase of his Vantage:Inhouse Productions publishing imprint, and about being a mentor, and much more.

And after that, during my talk with Acosta, we talk about working on the Elvira comics and what makes the Elvira character so timeless, along with the Twelve Devil's Dancing comic he did with writer Erica Schultz (who was on Episode #124), and how he accesses his artistic style on each project.

The Mojo Radio Show EP 205: Lessons From A SWAT Point Man - Dave Acosta

Read more
Dave Acosta is a mental fitness coach and speaker on elite leadership. A former point-man on the Las Vegas SWAT, he works globally with elite military and security forces. Dave studies what makes the elite -- elite. In this show, we discuss the formula Dave created that includes four common denominators that every elite performer possesses. Here’s what we cover in this show with Dave.   When people ask Dave what he does, how does he like to reply? The front of Dave's website says, “Your Defining Moment." Why that statement? Do we need to be more aware of our surroundings today? What is Dave telling his kids when they are out and about? When asked to consult the Navy SEALS in Iraq, how did he handle his mindset amongst elite performers in a combat situation? Teamwork for SEALS was different from anything Dave had seen….why? SEALS know that if they cut a corner, someone else will play the price. Who pays?  Never cut corners…what does that mean in the forces?  Dave has a unique quality, he reinforces his students trust in themselves. How does he go about doing that? Dave believes in three things: recognise, assess and react - he explains that to us. Dave is a mental fitness coach; a corporate worker is not fit if they are mentally unfit. Where should they start to get mentally fit? How do elite performers sustain their high level of performance? Is purposeful suffering a form of stress inoculation?  In Iraq, Dave learned, "I’m capable." He said to himself, "I’m capable." What made Dave believe that? What has Dave eliminated from his work to make is more efficient or productive? Quitting and giving up are two different things - why?   LINKS   Dave Acosta http://daveacosta.com/   Fight Back Nation training with Dave Acosta http://www.fightbacknation.org   Jason Mraz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZi3gJSWd4Y   The Mojo Radio Show website themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Twitter https://twitter.com/tmrspod   The Mojo Radio Show Answering Machine 08 7200 6656 08 7200 MOJO   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.
