Rank #1: 229 - The 6 Step Process to Unlock Powerful Creative Business Momentum

Podcast cover
Read more

What makes a good musician, writer or illustrator?

We’re told that it’s practice. Put in the time and you’ll become a master. But how many technically-masterful creative hometown heroes do you know that never even got close to making it?

Yes. They can shred the guitar like Hendrix. They can draw photorealistic portraits. They can write with perfect grammar and command a vast vocabulary.

They’ve put in their 10,000 hours...

And technically their craft is perfect...

But the art isn’t “good”.

So if it’s not about practice, passion, talent or skill, what’s the real foundation of great creative work? What’s it actually all about?

I believe the secret is hiding in plain sight, right under your nose and quite literally at the tip of your tongue but if you don’t know where to look for it you’ll never find it!

In this episode I want to share the idea that completely reinvented how I see creative work and my own creative super powers, and how I used this idea to develop a 6 Step process for unlocking your true creative business potential.

Rank #2: 137 - How to Know if You're Going the Right Way (Part 1 of the Creative Destiny Series)

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode is the definitive foundation of Creative Pep Talk and contains my favorite ideas at the heart of this show.

This is your creative destiny compass. In this episode we answer the question: what are the signposts pointing to my CREATIVE DESTINY? How do I know which direction will take me to my full creative career potential.

Should you keep going on the path you’re on or do you need to try something else? Is it about grit or should you be pivoting? Just keep swimming or fail fast and explore something new?

My hope is that whenever you’re stuck asking these questions, this episode will be your guide.

This episode is the first part of our series on Creative Destiny AKA your creative career hero’s journey to reach your full potential.

ALSO this episode marks a brand new chapter for the show, with new album artwork to commemorate our first 1 million listens!

202 - For When You Feel Like Giving Up

Do you ever feel like you've lost your way?

When you hit obstacles, setbacks and dead ends, do you sometimes feel as if you've fallen off your path?

For me, the creative career path is a roller coaster. There are so many circumstantial and emotional ups and downs, and if you ride every twist and turn, it can be exhausting and discouraging. Sometimes, I almost feel like this road is somehow cursed even!!!

In this episode I want to share with you ideas and tactics that have helped me breakthrough the times when I feel like giving up, and why this is the most essential tool in your creative career tool belt.

This episode is chocked full of big ideas and encouragement, but we know the real encouragement comes from tactics that actually enable real breakthrough in your creative career, and we've baked that in too!

This episode is pretty different and very special, we call it "The Curse of Art Island"!

Podcast cover

Anxiety is like kryptonite for creatives. Getting locked up in your head and second guessing every decision, can destroy your creative flow and therefore the quality of your work. Rapper Andy Mineo understands this on a personal level, and in this episode he shares his struggles and breakthrough work arounds for when you find yourself in the grip of crippling creative anxiety.

This is an extremely special episode. Andy and I got on a roll and had some deep moments and a ton of fun as well. I’m extremely grateful for the time and vulnerability that Andy brought to this interview, and I know you’re going to love it!!

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode we discuss how to know what work YOU should be making. I share my process of gathering ideas and how I’ve determined the type of content I’d like to feature in my work.

This isn’t just about personal work. Yes it may start there, but that personal work will lead to the type of clients you get too. This is why it’s so important to dig deep and get clear on what you want your work to be about.

The host is 100% talking to my inner artist self. I’m 12 min into my first episode and I had to come leave a review because I just know I’m going to soak all of this in. Not to mention host is naturally hilarious! Major bonus!

Very entertaining in crazy way
