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

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.

THIS ONE IS A DOOZY!

212 - How to Have Your True BIG BREAK!

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

211 - Get Your Work Seen w/ Marketing Legend Seth Godin

THIS MAY BE THE MOST EXCITING EPISODE I'VE EVER SHARED WITH YOU!!!

If you've listened to 25 seconds of this podcast you've probably heard me mention his name: Seth Godin.

Who is he? He is a world changer going around calling himself a 'marketer'. This man has had a bigger impact on the way I do business and marketing than anyone else and I owe him so much!

Seth shows up to this show and knocks every question out of the park. I haven't stopped thinking about this conversation since we had it, and I know there are ideas in here that are going to cause big breakthroughs in your creative career!

210 - You've Been Lied To And It's Holding You Back

In the movie Mean Girls, Regina George believes that these carb bars will make her lose weight, when in fact they are intended to make you GAIN WEIGHT!

Why does she believe this? Because Lindsay Lohan lies to her.

My point? Don’t eat carb bars… AND believing a lie can have TERRIBLE CONSEQUENCES EVEN ABOVE AND BEYOND NOT BEING PROM READY!

In the latest episode I show my SALTY SIDE. THIS IS A SALTY PIZZA EPISODE. I’m mad because I believe we creative types are force fed lies that hurt our ability to thrive to our full potential.

In this episode of Creative Pep Talk podcast, I’ll tell you why I’m mad, what lies are hurting you and I’ll share tactics to transcend these lies to live your full creative potential.

209 - Self Doubt, ADHD and Breakthrough with Saiman Chow

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!
