Consistency is Boring
You didn't get into this game of making things to be consistent. Consistency is boring, unworthy of our attention. What we want from you—that we'll never ask for—is something that surprises us. Something that scares us a little bit, that keeps us on our toes. We want something that is familiar but we never saw coming. Here’s another bonus for your ears. Back again next week.
When It’s Time to Change (Live)
In this live conversation between Jeff Goins and David Hooper, Jeff and a local radio host explore what it looks like to let go of something that’s working to start something new. This conversation was recorded live in July 2021 at the Nashville Podcasters Meetup, and Jeff shares what he learned from ending his last podcast and starting a new one. He and David also discuss when to keep going with a creative project and persevere through challenges as well as when you should just throw in the towel and start fresh.
Every artist wants to be unique. But the truth is before you can stand out, you first have to fit in. In this issue, we explore why even the indefinable needs definition, and how being extraordinary begins with being ordinary, but just not staying there. This week, we expand the conversation to a few more voices to help us grasp this mysterious thing we call genre and when it’s time to create a category of one.
On Mixtapes, or Curation vs. Creation
In this mixtape of mixtapes, Jeff brings co-producer Kelton Reid on the show to talk about what it takes to turn a piece of creative curation into an actual work of art and why the process isn’t what you think. In this issue, we talk about how to make a perfect playlist, why taste is integral to all creation, and why what you leave out is more important than what remains.
The Art of Re-Creation
Change is always happening. It is all around us: in our relationships, the work we do, even in ourselves. We are always turning from one thing into another, often without even realizing it. But when the story of your life no longer matches the role you want to play, it’s time to rewrite the script. This is re-creation.
Coming every Tuesday, a weekly mixtape of inspiration, resources, motivation, and shenanigans. Hey, Creator! is the podcast for the creator economy, for those who know they're capable of more than the boring, derivative content that's good enough for most people. Join us as we explore what it means not just to make interesting art, but to live an interesting life.
Right now, I’m only subscribed to one podcast - and it’s this one!
With “Hey, Creator” I feel like I’m joining in on a journey, the company of which can both pat me on the back and kick me up the jack at the same time.
With each episode I feel empowered to let my own creative process unfold with greater insight and intention.
Inspiration (that’s works when the dream is bigger than you)
Jeff’s viewpoint on creativity helps me as a creator to find my place in my own process, to keep walking when the forest is at its darkest.
Everything Jeff does is gold.
Jeff has continuously been one of the most impactful people in my life. His podcast is an extension of the value he adds to people’s lives.
