    There are TWO choices that define your creative practice. The problem is if you don’t know what they are you might choose wrong by default!

    In this episode I want to help you type yourself: which way do you most often self sabotage? Awareness is the first step. If you can become aware of your pitfalls and the root of these derailments, you can start to recognize and conquer them!

    275 - How Seeing Personal Brand as Self Actualization Changes Everything with Michelle Poler

    275 - How Seeing Personal Brand as Self Actualization Changes Everything with Michelle Poler

    If you’re like me you have a standoffish relationship to the term “personal brand”. BUT what if this apathy is causing you to miss an incredible personal and professional opportunity?

    Today on the show we have brand author and public speaker Michelle Poler! Michelle’s book “Hello Fears” JUST CAME OUT!! I wanted to have Michelle on the show to talk about this inspiring new book on facing your fears, and we did that, BUT I had no clue that we would have such an exciting and interesting discussion on how powerful and meaningful finding your personal brand can be!!!

    This conversation was SO GOOD. Michelle is a creative career powerhouse and she has taught me so much in the past few years! CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU TO LISTEN!

    We talk about:
    Why your comfort zone may have you content, but getting out of it will make your life deeply meaningful
    Personal Brand as Finding Yourself
    Contrasting not Comparing Yourself with Others
    Finding and Defining Your Core Values
    MORE MORE MORE

    Michelle’s new book is amazing and beautiful!!! This book is about a 100 day project where Michelle faced a new fear everyday for 100 days!! It went crazy viral and now she travels the world telling people how it changed her life! The book is a super action oriented and personal account that will help you face your fears too!

    274 - Your Creative Center: How to Find It & Create From It with Johnny Pemberton

    274 - Your Creative Center: How to Find It & Create From It with Johnny Pemberton

    For me, there is NOTHING more important to my creative journey than finding and staying in my creative center. Finding and creating from your creative center is about tuning into the pulse of your path.

    There’s nothing worse than creating from a place that feels untethered and imbalanced.

    In this episode I chat with actor and comedian Johnny Pemberton about how to find your creative center and create from a place of personal taste and intuition.

    This was such a good conversation!! So many great things came out of this chat for me!

    We also talk about:
    How to Find Your Center / Creating from that Centered Point
    Mindset and Thought Experiment for Finding Who You Are As an Artist
    How Your Taste Changes and What to Do About It
    Why Not to Put a Hot Iron on Your Face!
    AND MUCH MOOOOORREEE!!!

    THIS EPISODE IS A PODSWAP! This conversation also appears on Johnny Pemberton’s podcast ‘Live to Tape’.

Very helpful !

Settle in for some extended philosophical musings on life and the creative path. Not what you expect -- it really goes deep into its subject matter.

Always have tissues and a notebook handy when you listen to this podcast -- you might à a creative breakthrough or you might just finally realise what's been holding you back and have a cathartic breakdown.

Both options will change your life for the better.

Thank you Andy 🙏🏼
