236 - Joseph Gordon-Levitt and The Magic of Just Hitting Record
01:05:47

HOLY GOODNESS WE HAVE JGL ON THE SHOW TODAY!!! AAAAHH!!!

I have been a Joseph Gordon-Levitt super fan for well over a decade.

I first started following Joe's career back in high school when I discovered his first major dramatic role in the film 'Manic' and followed him as he went on to star in Rian Johnson's first film 'Brick'.

It's been incredible as a fan to watch him rise from those indie films to prominent roles in blockbusters such as Looper, Inception and Batman The Dark Knight Rises.

In this special interview episode, we dive deep into Joe's creative practice, what lead to his biggest breakthrough and ultimately the lesson that allowed him to reinvent his career from child actor to a-list movie star.

AND

This episode marks the start of our collaboration with Joe's collaboration platform 'HitRECord'.

233 - From Doing Stand Up in a Living Room to a Role on an NBC TV Show - Comedian Johnny Pemberton
01:23:56

FRIEEEEENDS!!!!!! This is one of my favorite conversations we’ve ever had on the podcast!!!!

Today on the show we have hilarious comedian Johnny Pemberton! You may know Johnny as Bo from the NBC comedy Superstore or the voice of Peanut from the Disney XD show Pickle and Peanut.

Beyond his extensive IMDB credits, Johnny has a phenomenal (and super ridiculous) podcast called “Live to Tape”. From Tim Meadows to Duncan Trussell to Johnny’s Mom to ME, “Live to Tape” has a deep back catalog of conversations with super interesting characters.

I find myself referencing the ideas from this episode ALL THE TIME. You’re gonna love this episode and JOHNNY! GET IN THERE!

230 - The Number 1 Most Essential Tactic I Used to Build My Creative Career
00:55:59

Don't you just love that moment the trailer drops for a sequel you've been dying to see?

That huge secret drop moment is so sexy we all fantasize about replicating this moment in our own creative work.

But the problem is if no one cared about your 'first film' no one's gonna be stoked about your super top secret trailer for movie 2 when you drop it.

So...

If an album drops on the internet and no one's there to hear it, does it make a sound?

NO. It doesn't.

That's why you need to quit sitting on your creative ideas.

Perfecting that piece in the dark isn't going to make that album or book drop more successful if no one is watching.

In this episode I want to detail a process where you create at the same time you're learning and at the same time you're marketing and gaining attention for your work.

229 - The 6 Step Process to Unlock Powerful Creative Business Momentum
01:03:25

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.

223 - The Strategy I Used to Crush My 2018 Goal in 12 Weeks (Call the Midwife Series Pt 2)
00:49:14

For years my goal setting strategy was less like a business tactic and more like a time capsule. I'd write my goals on my phone and then forget about them until a year later when I was making new ones.

Upon seeing the previous years goals my reaction was "Oh yeah, I forgot I even wanted to do that... well that didn't happen..."

LAST YEAR THOUGH this changed! I took a different approach to goal setting and action planning that caused my yearlong goal to be accomplished in less than 12 weeks!

Tune in this week if you want to:

  • Get clarity on what you really want
  • Tactics for planning a strategic game plan
  • An idea that may help you know if it's time to take a leap!

This is PART TWO of our CALL THE MIDWIFE... DR. PIZZA series!!

222 - How to GET SUPER PUMPED by Unearthing Your True Desire (Call the Midwife Series Pt 1)
01:16:54

Does your story feel stuck?

If you're feeling stuck it may be because you quit letting yourself dream. It may be because you're not really sure what your dream even is.

Stories only start because the main character wants something. It moves the plot forward, it calls the hero to action, it pushes them through conflict and obstacles.

And yet we often walk around day to day without any clear sense of desire. No wonder we feel apathetic and crushed by even the smallest things!

In this episode we talk about the power of tapping into your best truest desires and HOW to unearth them! These tactics switched on my creative fuel in a whole new way!

This is PART ONE of our CALL THE MIDWIFE... DR. PIZZA series!!

220 - 6 Tactics to Routinely Unlock Your Best Creative Self w/ Suzy Ultman PART 1
01:14:30

This two part conversation with my friend Suzy Ultman is sure to go down as one of our all time favorites in the Creative Pep Talk Podcast Hall of Fame!

It's no secret that I've been stressed out as of late, and that's part of the reason I reached out to my friend Suzy to be on the show. Suzy has this peaceful / intentional quality about her, and I invited over to the studio to share her mental health secrets with us!

Not only is Suzy just a great person to be around, she has the double whammy of being an INCREDIBLY INSPIRING illustrator, story teller & product designer. Suzy's toys and books are so gorgeous that my wife and I have sprinkled them throughout our home and given them as gifts to our kids (and our kid's friends) on many occasions!

In this episode we have a long conversation about Suzy's methods for staying sane as an artist, her sister's passing from cancer, the right mindset to approach inspiration and much much more!

218 - Want More Followers? Ask Yourself This
01:05:11

The episode is CREATIVE REAL TALK. No music. No frills. One take.

In this episode I share my current struggles, the lessons I'm learning right now in real time, and why I've been doing some unprecedented (for me) levels of soul searching in my life over the past 3 months.

This is a very vulnerable / real / authentic episode. I hope it's a welcome brief change of pace that encourages and comforts you!

We talk about:

  • The question to ask yourself if you want more followers
  • Why you're not able to be authentic in your work
  • Your role in the hero's journey as an artist
  • Dealing with nagging put downs from the past or present

216 - The Thing That's Always Held You Back & The Scientific Way to Defeat It
00:45:30

The New Year is an exciting time but often the excitement is short lived. We have such high hopes for all the changes we're going to make, but most often our hopes are crushed by someone who's very hard to defeat: OURSELVES!

YES. The OLD YOU you want to leave behind is the number 1 thing standing in the way of the NEW YOU you'd like to become and if you try to repress this OLD YOU it just seems to get stronger!

So I guess we should all just give up right?

NO! You have so much untapped potential and there are a few principles that will help you unleash your BEST SELF from the confines of your OLD SELF.

In this episode I want to share what's helped me become a better version of myself and ultimately become the type of person that can build and wield a thriving creative career!

214 - How to Send E-Mails that Change Your Life & MORE (BEST YEAR YET 2019 Pt 2 of 2)
01:02:40

The most important part of business is sales and the number 1 rule in sales is this: BELIEVE IN YOUR PRODUCT! You see, if you TRULY believe in your product and believe it will enrich the lives of your customers, you'll see marketing as a public service. If you have something that will really make people's lives better, you owe it to them to spread the word!

This is even more true in creative careers and creative business! You owe it to your potential true fans to get your work in front of them!

In this episode we share numbers 7 - 12 of our FRESH TACTICS for direct marketing so that you can make 2019 your best year yet!

This episode also features SPECIAL GUEST Kyle Scheele. Kyle is a full time public speaker and out of everyone I know he is the BEST at email cold calls and direct marketing and I asked him to share his tricks in this episode.

212 - How to Have Your True BIG BREAK!
00:51:01

They have been lying to you since you were born. You've been told "that's just the way it is" about taxes, school, work, and pretty much everything. But the truth is that nothing is ever "just the way it is", it's the way people before you decided it would be.

The world isn't just the way it is, it's the way you make it and until you realize this not just in your head, but in your heart, you will be held back from living your full creative potential.

In this episode I want to share with you how I've started to unlearn this limitation and how it's dramatically impacted my approach to creative work.

In this episode you will...

  • Learn about a post modern philosophy that will unlock your best work
  • Be introduced to a system for leveling up your creative work
  • Hear me do an impression of Morpheus from The Matrix

209 -Self Doubt, ADHD and Breakthrough with Saiman Chow
00:45:37

Today's episode is an interview with the brilliant mind that is Saiman Chow. I saw him give a talk at the ICON Illustration conference and my mind was seriously blown. I had to track him down and beg him to let me interview him.

Saiman's illustration and animation looks like a beautiful chaotic brain, forever in play.

This chat will inspire you to burst through self doubt and get lost in the play of your creative practice!

202 - For When You Feel Like Giving Up

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"!

201 - How to Find Your Gift
01:03:12

Finding your creative gift is the most important (and difficult) pursuit in your creative career, and in this episode, I will share all the clues that have helped me make progress on this journey.

From podcast interviews to speaking at conferences, I am very fortunate to get to meet a lot of phenomenal creative professionals. For the longest time, the central question for me has been this: what do the best of the best have in common? Over time, a pattern emerged: while there are an infinite amount of creative gifts, the people who know truly know what there gift really is are the ones that rise and stay at the top.

And yet, most of the artists I meet seem petrified to ask themselves "what is my gift?"

Maybe it's because we're afraid that we don't really have a gift? Maybe we're afraid because our gift is different than what we've spent years pretending it is?

Whatever your fear of facing this deeply important question is, it's my hope that today's episode will give you the tools you need to have a breakthrough on this journey!
