Rank #1: Brené Brown: The Quest For True Belonging

Podcast cover
Read more

Brené now holds the record for the most cjLIVE appearances, this being her third time on the show. She is a vulnerability and empathy expert and has one of the most watched TED Talks of all time on the subject and is the author of four New York Times best selling books, one of which, Daring Greatly, is my playbook for staying creative and true to myself. Her new book, Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone, has come out at a time where we need it most with our world being as divisive and disconnected as it is, it’s giving us the tools and ideas to use our unique skills to help connect with each other.

Like in our past episodes, we quickly go deep in this conversation. Brené drops bombs about the importance of connection and how to use your art and creativity to get there. We talk about power of paradox and you need to look no further than the paradox of her no bullshit Texan way of communicating her vulnerabilities as a paradox in itself. It was so refreshing to break down boundaries with Brené again after a year- hope you enjoy the interview as much as I do.

In today’s episode:

We talk about how divisive times are good breeding grounds for good art and how that art may be just what we need to form stronger connections between us. Art can save us.

Brené has such a unique way of talking about valuing your work. Have a strong back and a soft front. We talk about how to set boundaries around your worth and communicate that value without being a jerk.

Everything in this episode comes down to taking the reigns on your brain. You will learn about and tactics on how to use your intellect to your advantage, especially when your lizard brains wants to take over.

Enjoy!

Rank #2: Ramit Sethi: Change Your Habits, Change Your Life

Podcast cover
Read more

How many times have you told yourself “I know I should _____, but [insert excuse here]”? And how much progress would you have made toward your goals if you were able to silence that voice and get rid of the excuses that keep you from putting in the work that you know you should? If you’re like most of us, you’d rather not answer those questions— but as you’ll learn from this great conversation with Ramit Sethi, the answer is simple: change your habits, and you’ll change your life.

In our talk we discuss: * what separates the best from those who want to get rich quick: patience, discipline, and sacrifice * be more comfortable saying no and focus on a couple things you can be great at * carving out weekly time in the schedule to think big. think strategy. * and Ramit confesses something that few other legends of his stature will confess… namely about how he might only have 1-2 big ideas per year, but you need to go through the mess to get to those gems

... and much much more.

Rank #4: Brené Brown: Daring Greatly to Unlock Your Creativity

Podcast cover
Read more

You guys know how much I love Brené. She’s been the show multiple times-- in fact, I think she holds the record for most number of times on the show. Her philosophies on fear, vulnerability, and courage are so so powerful and when you realize how these things are acting in your life, you can unlock a whole new level of understanding around the things that have been holding you back.

Today I’m going into the archives to share her first ever conversation with me on the show three years ago. It’s not available here on the podcast and it’s so valuable I wanted you could take this talk on the go. If you’ve heard this before, you already know re-listening to Brené is never a bad thing. So many ah ha moments in this talk and we waste no time getting into it.

In this episode,

* Brené talks about how as a culture we’re raised to believe that vulnerability is weakness and so acting brave is being strong. As a society, this attitude creates a bravado - a sort of “postering, fake bravery”.

* Brené shared something that, for me, has stuck with me all these years and that’s, as creatives, we need to and get to decide whose opinions matter and whose don’t. She pulls out a short list of the people whose opinions matter to her, literally from her wallet.

* We talk about how you heal when someone kicks you while you’re down, and Brené talks a lot about building a support structure, whether that’s a therapist, coach, or your community. Your support team is a huge resource, even your greatest heroes relied on their communities to find and maintain success.

Rank #5: How to Build Real Confidence with Mel Robbins

Podcast cover
Read more

Mel Robbins is the most booked female speaker in the world, an American on-air CNN commentator and television host, contributing editor for Success magazine and author of The 5-Second Rule. Her TED Talk around the 5-second Rule is a simple framework to turn inaction into action and has garnered over 10 million view.

Mel has been on the show previously, and this week, I wanted to share a portion of a class she gave on CreativeLive on building self-confidence. Confidence is an important part of success and when those 3AM gremlins creep in, we all need a set of tools we can use to help give us the courage to put ourselves out there, and try something we’re not 100% sure about. Mel helps us unpack the what confidence is, how to build it, and gives us 5 habits that enable us keep us on track.

What I love about Mel is not only is she insanely inspirational she is also super super actionable. I love to share her content when I can and today is a lesson on self confidence that we all need to hear.

Rank #6: Brené Brown: Rising Strong in a Digital World

Podcast cover
Read more

She calls herself a shame and vulnerability researcher, she’s a storyteller, and has one of the most popular ted talks of all time. Brené Brown studies and talks about subjects we’re all intimately familiar with, but most of us rarely discuss. She has deeply, deeply inspired me. She’s a life changer, and a game changer and she also has 3 NYT Best Sellers in the top 10, including her latest book, Rising Strong.

I love this conversation with Brené and we go deep into the things we face as creatives and are working to make sense of. For example, we get into failure, dealing with critics, and how to handle those gremlins in your head telling you you’re not good enough.

Enjoy!

Rank #7: Seth Godin: How to Do Work That Matters for People Who Care

Podcast cover
Read more

Legend alert!!! Seth Godin is a force of nature and a shaman to so many creatives and entrepreneurs. He has taught and inspired millions of entrepreneurs, marketers, leaders, and fans from all walks of life, via his blog, online courses, lectures, and his 18 (yes, count them - 18!) bestselling books. If you’ve been following his work, you’ll know he’s one most brilliant marketing minds of our time. Seth’s latest book, This Is Marketing, helps reframe how thinking small is the new big! More precisely how we will find success if we at first make our products - whatever they are — for the smallest viable audience.  Seth believes your most generous and insightful work needs this help - YOUR HELP - finding the people it’s meant to serve....

If there has been a guest that can speak directly to that little voice in your head - and help you get this marketing stuff RIGHT - it’s Seth. Pure sage. And purely actionable.  

In this episode:

  • The riskiest thing you can do it make average stuff for average people and pitch it to the masses. Instead, focus on the smallest viable audience (e.g. your patrons at table 4 of your restaurant) and bring magic to them, they will come back and they will bring their friends.
  • If you try to please everyone, you’ll stop pleasing the people you care about. Seth shares some strategies on how to focus on the people that care about your work and better serve them.
  • We all want to do work that matters for people who care. But we trip ourselves up thinking we need to become an evil marketer and spam the world. Fortunately, the best way to achieve your marketing goals is to help others become who they want to be.
  • and much more…!

Mel Robbins is the most booked female speaker in the world, an American on-air CNN commentator and television host, contributing editor for Success magazine and author of The 5-Second Rule. Her TED Talk around the 5-second Rule is a simple framework to turn inaction into action and has garnered over 10 million views. What I love about Mel is her hard-hitting, no bullshit real talk. You won’t get any sugar coating here. She calls herself the fucked up friend that figured things out and has become wise. Now, she doesn’t want us to make the same mistakes she did. She’s done the hard work and the research, science of habit, science of confidence, the way self-doubt works. She’s on a mission to share everything she’s learned.

In this episode:

  • We talk a lot about anxiety. Mel says she was born a worrier, and around age 21, the panic attacks started becoming paralyzing. Not everyone has dealt with depression and anxiety, but we’ve all had gone through hard times. And the open & thoughtful tools Mel shares are useful for everyone.
  • Mel says “you don’t have to think the way you have to think.” The basis of her book is the 5-second rule, which is taking the world by storm. There is a connection between our wellbeing and our thoughts. Mel and I go deep into her technique the 5-second rule to change habits.
  • We also get a sneak peek of a technique Mel is currently researching that works every time to help you find your passion, make choices, and audit your life. I cannot wait for you to hear it.

Rank #13: Become A Master Communicator w/ Vanessa Van Edwards

Podcast cover
Read more

Vanessa Van Edwards bills herself as a “behavioral investigator” - what that means is that she is absolutely amazing at unpacking what makes people do the things they do and turning that into proven, actionable techniques for others to hone their own people skills. She’s written for publications like CNN, Fast Company and forbes and is the author of the brand new (and incredibly good) book “Captivate: The Science Of Succeeding With People.” You’ve heard me talk many times about the critical importance of soft skills in building a successful career as a creator, and Vanessa is THE authority on this mega-important topic.

Today on the podcast,

* She talks about the difference between decoding and encoding emotional signals and how to apply that idea - for example, monitoring the micro-emotions that you are encoding with your body language and facial expressions (if you suffer from RBF this segment is for you!)

* Tons of amazing little hacks that will help you hone your people skills. As just one example that takes literally just a few seconds, when you see a closeup of someone’s face on tv, try making that same face - it will help develop your ability to feel empathy because you’ll find that you start feeling the same emotions that they’re feeling

* Vanessa is also a master negotiator, and gets into some ninja negotiating techniques. You’ve heard me say that you need to raise your rates and these are the specific tactics you should be using to do so - this is the kind of specific, tactical stuff that I love

Super pumped for this week's podcast... If you happened to miss yours truly + Seth Godin on my tour stop in New York a few weeks ago, here it is.

Of course, the title "Creator Therapy" is a little tongue and cheek. Seth and I gathered with about 120 other creators for a conversation on creativity, creative blocks, and taking that next step. Seth is a sage as always. Super grateful to share the stage and soak in some of his wisdom.

Hope you enjoy the conversation, and please be sure to give a shout out to Seth on the socials if you received some value.

Podcast cover

We all have fear. The question is: Is fear holding you back?

In today's show, we're mixing it up with my friends Tim Ferriss, Brené Brown, Daymond John, Mel Robbins, and Neil Strauss. We take a look back at how they think about fear, some strategies to deal with it, and how we can play through it.

In this episode,

  • Fear isn’t all bad. There's a healthy level of fear, and Daymond John shares how it's helped motivate him in business.  
  • My man Tim Ferriss talks what he does to deflate his biggest fears by imagining the “worst case scenario” 
  • The best way to overcome your fear is by risking failure. Every time you choose to get in the arena and battle your fear, you grow stronger and more confident.  As Neil Strauss says, “Uncertainty is a very confident place to be.”

Rank #16: How To Stop Waiting And Start Doing w/ Roman Mars

Podcast cover
Read more

Roman Mars is the host of the wildly popular design podcast “99% Invisible” and has been called “the Ira Glass of design.” With several hundred episodes in the can over its six years in existence, it’s covered everything from “Unsung Icons of Soviet Design” to Love Park’s place in skateboarding history to DIY space suits, all through the same lens of - as he says - “telling stories that make you notice and appreciate the world in a different way,” drawing attention to the world of design around us that is 99% invisible (hence the title of the show). He’s also the creator of the world’s most popular design-focused TED Talk and co-founder of the podcast collective Radiotopia.

Today on the podcast,

* He says that “lack of success gives you a certain amount of freedom” - I love this because I see so many people stressing about the fact that they aren’t a household name yet - embrace it! This is your chance to try crazy, cool stuff - and if you mess it up then it doesn’t matter because nobody’s watching.

* We get into something I talked about recently on this show which is finding your personal style - he has a great way of putting it: try on as many things as possible until you find your voice.

* He gets into what he’s learned as the show has scaled and relies not just on him but on a team. This is tough for many creators who are super comfortable doing things alone and have to make a lot of adjustments once it becomes a team effort.

Rank #17: Elle Luna: Should vs Must

Podcast cover
Read more

If you’ve ever asked yourself - as almost all of us have - “how can I find and follow my calling and my passion,” then you’re going to get a lot out of this conversation. Elle has a book describing her own search for an answer to this question which is called “The Crossroads of Should And Must” which explores the tension between the expectations that parents, friends, and culture put on us (what she calls “should”) and who we are and what we know to be true (what she calls “must”). 

Today on the podcast,

* She breaks work down into 3 categories: jobs, careers and callings. So many of us are stuck in one of the first 2, looking for a way to get to the 3rd.

* Accountability comes up again - a common theme in a lot of these conversations as a really key part of the creative process, to help get us across the finish line and actually COMPLETE our ideas. For Elle, the key is attaching a human to it - she says “if someone I love is counting on me to deliver something, I won’t let them down.”

* Another familiar theme that comes up again is structure- some creatives resist structure, but I am a firm and passionate believer that structure doesn’t hinder creativity, it helps it. Elle talks about how she uses structure-- one of her little hacks is setting a kitchen timer in 17 minute increments, and during that 17 minutes she can’t deviate from the task at hand.

After a few years of recording his own podcast, Tim has become quite the pro question asker. So I ask Tim some of his best interview questions and get some great tactical advice around habits, killer reads, and even some stories he hasn't ever shared publicly.

He is one of the most insightful voices on one of my favorite topics: building and maintaining a creativity habit. Today on the show please welcome my long-time friend and creative inspirator - Austin Kleon.

If you’re not familiar with this work, Austin is a lifelong artist and the bestselling author of three earlier books (Newspaper Blackout, Steal Like an Artist and Show Your Work)…but today we’re all about his new book titled Keep Going: 10 Ways to Stay Creative in Good Times and Bad.    

And BONUS - this episode is an extra special treat because Austin came out to Seattle and we chatted in front of a live audience! Some great questions, a few good laughs, and it all takes place in a huge church! Want to avoid burn-out and stay creative in good times and bad? This’ll be a great listen.  

We also cover…

  • Maintaining creative momentum
  • Austin’s personal daily practice
  • Kids and creativity
  • Getting unstuck
  • The value of time as a great editor for your work
  • And…the value of 'going away so you can come back.’
Enjoy!

Rank #20: Harnessing Your Human Nature for Success with Robert Greene

Podcast cover
Read more
Today we welcome back on the show the 6x international bestselling author, Robert Greene.  Robert has had huge impact in my life with books like Mastery, 48 Laws of Power, and the 33 Strategies of War.  And in this episode we go deep on his newest book - and my new favorite -The Laws of Human Nature, a brilliant consolidation of the various theories on human nature - how to better understand them and use them to grow.   We dive deep into:
  • You are a lot weirder than you think you are. WE ALL ARE in fact. We’re repressing so many sides of who we are - most often without even knowing it. We’re trying to stand out.  We’re trying to fit in. The stuff we repress and try to hide are like a stranger within us.  Knowing all this - and how to navigate it - gives us personal power.
  • It it possible to harness our "dark side" for increased creativity, wisdom, strength and character? Robert argues that, not only is it something worth tapping into, it’s THE source of power missing in your life.
  • Robert’s recent near-death experience has given him a profound sense of gratitude, how it has compelled him to be more patient and has challenged him to apply the advice he offers to others. 
  • That ugly, self-sabotaging voice in our head…how to manage and counteract it to increase joy and personal performance.  it’s no surprise that we create our own circumstances by the attitudes we have (self-perpetuating) - but Robert gives us new strategies to change our own attitudes. 
In short - this interview is a doozie.  We cover the parts of Human Nature that you’ve had a hunch about but never had the guts to dig into, for fear of what you might find.  Robert has done this research for us - in a heartfelt and nuanced way - and delivers us to the doorstep of answers that surprise, frighten, delight, and most definitely makes us think.   Enjoy!   Today's episode is brought to you by CreativeLive.
