    EPISODE DESCRIPTION
    Derek Sivers is a musician, producer, circus performer, entrepreneur, TED speaker, and book publisher. He's written four books including How To Live, Hell Yeah Or No, Your Music And People, and Anything You Want.
    He's also the founder of CD Baby – the largest seller of independent music online, with $100 million in sales for 150,000 musicians. In 2007, Derek sold that business for $22 million – almost all of which Derek donated to a charitable trust for music education.
    In this episode, we talk about how Derek keeps himself focused on ONE project at a time, how to navigate conflicting philosophies, what we can learn from professional musicians, and how creators can pursue balance in our lives.

Decoding creative processes of the best creators

Love Jay’s show and how he digs out actionable insights from some of the world’s top creators. Keep your phone nearby when you’re listening because you’re going to keep grabbing it to make notes!

Branding With Video ,

Most Underrated Show Of The Year - You Need To Be Listening To This!

I found Jay’s podcast last week on YouTube and have been binge listening to episodes everyday since. There are few shows I actually subscribe to (I consume WAY too much content as a creator already) and I review even less.

I can say without a doubt you are missing out on some incredible insights if you over look this show!

If you want to see one of the best produced video podcasts go watch the episodes that are available on YouTube. You will be deeply enriched by spending time with Jay on Creative Elements.

PR Pro1286 ,

Incredible value!

I heard about this podcast listening to Marketing Against the Grain and they recommended this one for creators.

I’m SO GLAD I did!! So much free advice for up and coming creators. I’ve learned so much about mindsets, brand deals, strategies, tactics and so much more. Thank you for the amazing work!
