My new description, written Nov 6, 2021:
Welcome to Spark The Genius. That's the name of the show, that's my name, and it's what I'm here to help you do.
I think everyone has a passion or skill that will make the world a better, more beautiful place. You just need to let it out. That’s what I’m here for. I’ve done lots of things. As a copywriter, I’ve built billion dollar brands for P&G. I’ve written award-winning screenplays. I’ve acted in TV and radio commercials. I’ve run for political office. I’ve gone viral with comedy songs. I’ve interviewed Hollywood stars on red carpets. I’ve won stand-up comedy contests. I like doing experiments and learning how to do new things. I want to help you do that too. I’m also always researching how to make money. From voice acting, to copywriting, I make money from my computer. And one month I turned $70,000 into $1.5 million dollars in 2 stocks trades - I can teach you how to do that too. Let’s find happiness and success together! Join me as I interview people all sorts of people to learn their secrets of success, and as I coach people to be their best selves.
My name Josh Rachlis (Rack-less) is hard to spell. So for a while I was going with Celebrity Josh. But now, on Nov 6, 2021, 6 days before my 49th birthday, I’m trying a new name: Spark The Genius. It’s both my name and what I do. I’ve always wanted a one-syllable name like Sting or Pink. So I’m giving myself one. And since I can’t get spark.com, I’m adding a bit to the name, like Tyler, The Creator. Oh, and I love that I can type Spark as an emoji, and that the emoji looks like an S. It’s so perfect.
I’ve been teaching myself to make a logo online. And I’m just putting it out there, in its rough form. Because I believe in doing things messy. So join me as I do this podcast messy!
