Creative Warriors is a podcast and community for entrepreneurs, out-of-box thinkers, innovators and ambitious individuals that need creative solutions in business.

We discuss marketing, branding, productivity, mindset, building meaningful relationships with customers and living a fulfilling life of purpose. Everything that it really means to be a Creativ ...

Sometimes I have concerns about technology and the impact it is having on society. Whether positive or negative, it has become an integral part of our lives, both professionally and personally. With the advances we’ve made in technology, there are still some significant questions about its impact. Will it lead us to a perfect or a dystopian fut ...…
 
We all strive to provide the best customer service possible. But what if good or even exceptional customer service isn't enough? Excellent customer service is too easy to replicate so it's still hard to stand out. What could be better than serving people? Seeing them. Really seeing them and all that is important to them. Feeling seen, heard and ...…
 
If you want to attract business you must have a story that is interesting. Business owners often miss out on opportunities or cannot close a deal because they didn't make a lasting impression. Many think that it's luck, but it's not. It's important to spend time molding, crafting, and perfecting your story; it can change your future. Success de ...…
 
Could it be that we're becoming more positive? That marketing pain and negativity is no longer what people need to see before they seek a solution? It seems so! Or at least negativity is not all they want to see. Find out how to market aspiration and paint a picture of all that's possible! The Talking Stick is in your hands now. Let us hear fro ...…
 
A lack of clarity can severely hinder the life of a creative professional. You can have a bunch of daily tasks and plenty of work to do, but without clarity, you don't have a clear idea of why you're doing it and how it will benefit your overall goal strategy. With clarity, you can stay flexible on the path to achieving each goal. Clarity of pu ...…
 
There are three months left to 2019. So I'm challenging you with a series of things you can do for the remaining three months to change your life. Three daily practices for three months. Three things you're going to start doing for the next three months. And three things you're going to stop doing for the next three months. This combination of ...…
 
Procrastination gets in the way of creative professionals in different ways. We can have too many projects that we’re working on, jobs that don’t feed our bigger goals, and even too many tabs open on our computer. But you’re able to get further if you can focus on one goal. If you have to think about what to work on, you’ll suffer from decision ...…
 
I used to eat out for almost every meal. I rarely cooked, and my body, skin and bank account were suffering. But then, I changed my eating habits because I wanted to look good. As I got older, my mindset shifted; I realized that how I felt was more important than how I looked. Now, my motive isn’t how I look or how healthy I am, it’s how I can ...…
 
Whether you are transitioning from a corporate job to another field or to becoming an entrepreneur and going out on your own, it's a unique experience. Or perhaps you've been an entrepreneur all along but there's something else you'd like to be doing that's more meaningful to you. Transition has its challenges while also being incredibly exciti ...…
 
There are aspects of modern technology and AI that could make us fearful. Companies and governments are using our data to influence us commercially and politically. Even scarier, we often aren’t aware of these actions because they are invisible. However, the new data-driven frontier gives us a lot to be excited about as well. Technology used to ...…
 
A continuation of last week's Talking Stick episode, this week we get more specific on three ways customer's behavior using technology has changed and how we need to adapt. In summary, they want to stay where they are, one size does not fit all, and they want to feel like one in a million. Listen in to understand the strategies you'll need to k ...…
 
The Creative Warrior community is made up of misfits; we’re people who think differently than our peers and often feel like outsiders looking in. It’s common to want to change the traits that make us different, but it’s precisely those special qualities that will make us the most successful in business and life. So how can we learn to embrace o ...…
 
One of the biggest challenges businesses face today is keeping up with changes in customer behavior. Never is this truer than the gap that is created between how customers are behaving on technology and how businesses are using technology. In this two-part series, I will address this problem. In this episode, Part 1, we focus on websites and ho ...…
 
Figuring out your life’s purpose can feel like a daunting endeavor. It’s such a big question, and we often confuse purpose with career. We can get lost in our thoughts when we try to answer the question, “Why am I here?” But if you’re out of alignment with your purpose, it can throw your whole entrepreneurial “ecosystem” off. Your purpose is no ...…
 
A fun week of travel and several unplanned visits leads me to understand a valuable lesson about having a diverse business model. My hope is that you will be empowered to be true to yourself to build a diverse business model that can open up your world in ways that you can't imagine right now. The Talking Stick is in your hands now. Let us hear ...…
 
We live in a “hustle culture” that praises getting little sleep, sacrificing everything, and working nonstop. If you watch Shark Tank, you’re familiar with their advice to work 90 hours a week if you want to be successful as an entrepreneur. But putting so little priority on personal relationships and self-care is ultimately toxic and unsustain ...…
 
Many people think PR is either going to get you on the Today Show, or get you in magazines which hardly exist anymore. It feels like a mystery that couldn’t possibly work for them. As a result, they don’t attempt to engage in media relationships at all. But it’s time to reset our minds regarding PR. We can all benefit from it, and it’s not limi ...…
 
So much of our success depends on what’s going on inside and how we react to the challenges along the way. If you don’t work on your mindset, you’ll end up giving up when facing adversity. You might even be too afraid to start. Unless you spend time figuring out your ultimate goal, visualize that goal, and take action to accomplish it, you’ll f ...…
 
You know the common term to level up your business? In this episode, I lay out the 4 levels of business development from zero to $1 million to everything in between. It's only important that you reach the level YOU want to. You'll gain an understanding of each level, what it may feel like to you at this level and how to level up if you chose to ...…
 
We often think of wisdom as flowing downhill, but that’s not the case. Young workers and more seasoned employees have so much to offer each other, especially with the fast-paced changes in technology today. Instead of judging different generations, turn those feelings into curiosity so that you can learn. The world needs a different perspective ...…
 
The whole idea of work/life balance is a misnomer. Or is it even work/life balance that you strive for? Perhaps it's more of a relationship between money and lifestyle. As you'll hear in this episode, there's a time to attain and a time to attune. And it very well may be that at different stages of life, while one is in attainment mode that wor ...…
 
There is no known answer to anything. We often look to “experts” to show us the way when we’re feeling insecure. But this can cause us to lose our intuition in the process. At the end of the day, you are what separates you and your product apart from others. You have to understand your own essence of sales or all the strategies in the world won ...…
 
Why has failure been glamourized? As if it's some badge of honor, a rite of passage or something we need to go through as Warriors. It's not. It's all in how you look at it. I share how I look at "failure", or don't see it at all actually. You'll understand once you listen and will realize you have far more control than you might think to see i ...…
 
I’ve grown to have an aversion to the term “likemindedness.” If you only hang out with people who share your views, you’ll never be challenged. The bigger challenge is being around people who think differently and still being able to find alignment. When people have different opinions, emotions can run high. There are a lot of cliché phrases sa ...…
 
The power of a single word. The power to change your perspective. My hope is that thinking in terms of thresholds as you go through changes in life, particularly in midlife, will help you embrace the process. Which can at times be painful, frustrating and scary. Perhaps it's because you've been thinking you're going through a transition instead ...…
 
As most of you know, I’m a true systems guy. But not many people think of creativity as something that can have a system. Most assume that it’s something that “hits” you out of nowhere instead of something that you can plan out. However, there is a way to develop a process for creative problem-solving. Making creativity a systematic part of you ...…
 
My book, LINGO is a branding and marketing strategy. But this episode is about your inner lingo. Meaning, I believe it's incredibly important to pay attention to the energy behind what you say and think. That's your inner lingo. To accelerate getting what you want out of your business and life, you want to align your inner lingo with your outer ...…
 
Gratitude is a personal practice that takes place internally. It can retrain your brain away from negativity and make you more aware of the good around you. So how can we take gratitude and give it an exponential effect? One way to make it active is by sending thank-you notes. I often think about sending thank-you notes but rarely make the time ...…
 
We often wear perfection like a badge of honor. But is it really? Or is it a negative fuel source cloaked in a great outcome? This conversation with a friend over Sunday brunch may give you a different perspective and reframe perfection to excellence. I explore the difference and challenge you to consider the difference in your own life between ...…
 
I suck at improv. I’ve dabbled in it here and there, but I love it because it challenges me in all the ways I need to grow. I’ve been known to “prescribe” improv to clients, but they often don’t end up taking a class. The fear of looking stupid holds a lot of people back from even trying it. Improv offers a huge number of lessons about life and ...…
 
Being vulnerable is difficult for everyone, but it can be especially hard for businesses to embrace. They often think that vulnerability will take away their power. They’re convinced that being honest and authentic will limit their results. But being completely upfront with your customers actually maximizes your results. With apps like Yelp and ...…
 
Inspired by a week of events and conversations, I talk about acceptance within ourselves and from others. Similar to my TEDx Talk where I suggest that when we allow ourselves to see what others see in us, that it can help us expand beyond our self-limiting expectations, when we are accepted by others it helps us accept ourselves. The Talking St ...…
 
Welcome to the 500th Episode of Creative Warriors! In just under five years, we have over a million downloads and 500 episodes. I was planning on getting a “big name” or celebrity to celebrate this milestone, but I realized that none of that really matters. What matters is the community of warriors we have built in over 200 countries and all th ...…
 
This question, "What do you own?", is both practical and philosophical. I cover multiples sides of the importance of ownership from why it's important for your business to knowing how what you own can help you carve out a place for yourself in the world. The Talking Stick is in your hands now. Let us hear from you. Be part of the conversation - ...…
 
A lot of us Creative Warriors have lots of passion but no initiative. We have a dream and a talent, but we often don’t know where to put our energy. We can’t tell the difference between passing fancies and things that are worth doing. Fear can also hold us back from putting all of our energy into something because we’re scared that we’ll get st ...…
 
After last week's Talking Stick episode when I suggested that the reason Warriors experience so many ups and downs is that parts of their entrepreneur ecosystem are not functioning well, I received a few inquiries asking about the entrepreneur ecosystem. In this episode, I explain the many elements of a healthy entrepreneur ecosystem. The Talki ...…
 
Do you show up “salesy” or committed? If you’re passionate, you can be direct and demanding without coming off as a pushy salesman. Get people on your team by having a clear message that is both easy to communicate and easy for others to adopt. In today’s world, people are bombarded with messages constantly; you need to have a catchy, direct “h ...…
 
Are the ups and downs of entrepreneurship inevitable? The nature of the beast? Or do we cause it? It's a little bit of both but I believe the biggest culprit is that specialization has caused fragmentation. Find out how to get out of this loop of running around all over the place to support what should be an integrated ecosystem of entrepreneur ...…
 
You never need insurance until it’s a bad time. Do you really want to make a stressful scenario worse? Probably not. If you can understand that you’re going to need to be in the best state of mind that you can be to handle that future crisis, you’ll be able to effectively prepare. I personally am a huge insurance buyer. My father passed away wi ...…
 
If systems and structure seem rigid or you feel might inhibit your creativity, here's a different way to look at systems. Find out how setting the environment for what you want can make miracles happen. You'll hear how setting the environment is the current way of doing business and how you can apply the idea of setting the environment in your ...…
 
It’s very hard to imagine retirement- it can feel like a far-off dream. It’s difficult to save for something that you can’t even imagine. Because of this, a lot of us avoid thinking or talking about money at all. It doesn’t feel good. Like a diet, budgets are something we have negative feelings toward and ultimately end up abandoning. It’s bett ...…
 
Often, as creative professionals, we don’t put much thought into the idea of company culture. But even when your team is working remotely, you can build a successful culture. It all begins with you. If you have a clear idea of your company’s values, you can make sure everyone you work with is aligned with those values. Having a good company cul ...…
 
Have you ever considered the role you play as a connector? In other words, you create something for someone so that they can reach the audience or people they want to reach. When you think about it that way, it increases the level of responsibility and possibility for impact. I talk about how this can even change the world. The Talking Stick is ...…
 
I’ve never had a guest on to talk about a memoir, but I thought Jane Pollak’s journey would be beneficial for the Creative Warrior community. Jane was a successful artist decorating eggs bought by people like Steve Jobs and featured at The White House, but ultimately she wasn’t happy. She decided that she could no longer settle for a life of no ...…
 
Being a warrior is courage on steroids. It takes so much courage to put ourselves out there, to risk failure as well as the risk of the burden of responsibilities of success. Courage has been on my mind because of the recent Netflix special with Brene Brown. A fantastic show that I highly recommend. I break down what courage means as a warrior ...…
 
Making your creative business profitable is a constant struggle for artists. Because our services are often something we’ve done for free, we feel guilty charging a lot of money. We get stuck in the loop of doing work at lower rates for friends and family and undervaluing the skills we bring to the table. To change how much money you make from ...…
 
Ever have that feeling that you're working really hard but hardly getting ahead? You know....running on a hamster wheel? It's likely because you're applying a lot of effort and strategy but getting in your own way with mindset blocks. In this episode, I lay out the three components you need to be truly successful. The trifecta of success. It's ...…
 
A lot of times we set intentions, but we don’t get the results we want. This is because we are out of alignment. We have a vision, but we don’t actually believe our goals could come true. Manifestation is a powerful tool, but you have to align your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs in order for it to work. Manifestation isn’t just “woo-woo” new-a ...…
 
When I had back surgery, my doctor told me everything that would happen except for one thing: there would be machines on my legs pumping my blood. I woke up and immediately thought I was paralyzed. If my doctor had told me this was going to happen, it would have saved me that moment of fear. It’s true in business, too. Expectations have to be c ...…
 
Entrepreneurs don't often think of themselves as leaders. Thinking like a leader will help you think bigger and step into creating the impact you want on your community and in the world. When you think of people like Elon Musk, Richard Branson and Oprah Winfrey, do you really think of them as business owners? They are leaders. There's a latent ...…
