236 - Joseph Gordon-Levitt and The Magic of Just Hitting Record

HOLY GOODNESS WE HAVE JGL ON THE SHOW TODAY!!! AAAAHH!!! I have been a Joseph Gordon-Levitt super fan for well over a decade. I first started following Joe's career back in high school when I discovered his first major dramatic role in the film 'Manic' and followed him as he went on to star in Rian Johnson's first film 'Brick'. It's been incredible as a fan to watch him rise from those indie films to prominent roles in blockbusters such as Looper, Inception and Batman The Dark Knight Rises. In this special interview episode, we dive deep into Joe's creative practice, what lead to his biggest breakthrough and ultimately the lesson that allowed him to reinvent his career from child actor to a-list movie star. AND This episode marks the start of our collaboration with Joe's collaboration platform 'HitRECord'.

233 - From Doing Stand Up in a Living Room to a Role on an NBC TV Show - Comedian Johnny Pemberton

FRIEEEEENDS!!!!!! This is one of my favorite conversations we’ve ever had on the podcast!!!! Today on the show we have hilarious comedian Johnny Pemberton! You may know Johnny as Bo from the NBC comedy Superstore or the voice of Peanut from the Disney XD show Pickle and Peanut. Beyond his extensive IMDB credits, Johnny has a phenomenal (and super ridiculous) podcast called “Live to Tape”. From Tim Meadows to Duncan Trussell to Johnny’s Mom to ME, “Live to Tape” has a deep back catalog of conversations with super interesting characters.

230 - The Number 1 Most Essential Tactic I Used to Build My Creative Career

Don't you just love that moment the trailer drops for a sequel you've been dying to see? That huge secret drop moment is so sexy we all fantasize about replicating this moment in our own creative work. But the problem is if no one cared about your 'first film' no one's gonna be stoked about your super top secret trailer for movie 2 when you drop it. So... If an album drops on the internet and no one's there to hear it, does it make a sound? NO. It doesn't. That's why you need to quit sitting on your creative ideas. Perfecting that piece in the dark isn't going to make that album or book drop more successful if no one is watching. In this episode I want to detail a process where you create at the same time you're learning and at the same time you're marketing and gaining attention for your work.

229 - The 6 Step Process to Unlock Powerful Creative Business Momentum

What makes a good musician, writer or illustrator? We’re told that it’s practice. Put in the time and you’ll become a master. But how many technically-masterful creative hometown heroes do you know that never even got close to making it? Yes. They can shred the guitar like Hendrix. They can draw photorealistic portraits. They can write with perfect grammar and command a vast vocabulary. They’ve put in their 10,000 hours... And technically their craft is perfect... But the art isn’t “good”. So if it’s not about practice, passion, talent or skill, what’s the real foundation of great creative work? What’s it actually all about? I believe the secret is hiding in plain sight, right under your nose and quite literally at the tip of your tongue but if you don’t know where to look for it you’ll never find it! In this episode I want to share the idea that completely reinvented how I see creative work and my own creative super powers, and how I used this idea to develop a 6 Step process for unlocking your true creative business potential.

For years my goal setting strategy was less like a business tactic and more like a time capsule.

Upon seeing the previous years goals my reaction was "Oh yeah, I forgot I even wanted to do that... well that didn't happen..." LAST YEAR THOUGH this changed! I took a different approach to goal setting and action planning that caused my yearlong goal to be accomplished in less than 12 weeks!

Does your story feel stuck? If you're feeling stuck it may be because you quit letting yourself dream. It may be because you're not really sure what your dream even is. Stories only start because the main character wants something. It moves the plot forward, it calls the hero to action, it pushes them through conflict and obstacles. And yet we often walk around day to day without any clear sense of desire. No wonder we feel apathetic and crushed by even the smallest things!

This two part conversation with my friend Suzy Ultman is sure to go down as one of our all time favorites in the Creative Pep Talk Podcast Hall of Fame! It's no secret that I've been stressed out as of late, and that's part of the reason I reached out to my friend Suzy to be on the show. Suzy has this peaceful / intentional quality about her, and I invited over to the studio to share her mental health secrets with us! Not only is Suzy just a great person to be around, she has the double whammy of being an INCREDIBLY INSPIRING illustrator, story teller & product designer. Suzy's toys and books are so gorgeous that my wife and I have sprinkled them throughout our home and given them as gifts to our kids (and our kid's friends) on many occasions! In this episode we have a long conversation about Suzy's methods for staying sane as an artist, her sister's passing from cancer, the right mindset to approach inspiration and much much more!
