TGM 04: You Have To Jump Off The Cliff Before You Can Build Wings

risks

The only way to accomplish things that matter is to take risks. Sometimes, big risks.

This marks my first “solo” show ever. I had the content all planned out and then desided to change it up last minute.

In this “inbetweenisode” I talk about why it’s important (and OK) to take big risks. In fact, it’s necessary if you want to accomplish anything that matters.

Sure, you can play it safe and follow all the rules society has set on us, but that’s the path that leads to regret, my friends. Often the most rewarding things you do in life are the ones that look like they simply can’t be done.

TGM 03: Cultivating Creativity, Kicking Social Media Addiction and Finding Your Calvin and Hobbes with Jason SurfrApp

Two of my favorite topics of discussion are the over-connected world we live in and how to intentionally cultivate creativity in our lives. Jason and I dove headfirst into both of those topics as well as many others.

And I couldn’t think of a better person which whom to have this particular discussion. Jason SurfrApp is hands-down one of the most brilliant people I know. I’m privileged to call him a friend and this conversation is definitely in my top 5 of the first 4 episodes of TGM. Wait…

Who knows what he really does at the Jason HQ, but officially, he’s a entrepreneur, best-selling author, creative thinker and a self-described “action taker and unconventional marketer”.

I loved Jason’s take on business, social media, finding balance and meaning on our lives and businesses.

Whenever I talk to Chase Reeves it’s like two little rabbits hopping all over the place chasing a carrot through the world of philosophical meaning and existential angst. In a good way. ;)

Chase is a designer, educator and co-founder of Fizzle.co, which is hands-down the best online community for people who want to make a living doing something they love. Check out the contest to win a full year of Fizzle for FREE.

He’s a self-described “weird mix of business, design, marketing, tomfoolery, cocktails, marketing, design, flahoolick, and cocktails. Most of his friends say he’s the most indelicate person they know.”

TGM 01: What to Expect From the New TGM and Some Exciting Announcements

tgm01-image

It’s finally here, folks. The Gently Mad has been rebooted. I’m hoping it’s more of a J.J. Abrams style reboot than a George Lucas one.

I did 59 episodes of the old show (which is still in iTunes if you want to peruse the back catalogue) and I’m super excited about relaunching and what’s to come.

In this episode, I dive into why I decided to reboot (despite being told it was a dumb move), what you can expect from the new show and how it will be different from the old one.
