Use everything you know to do what you love. Use it all. Today I’m talking to celebrity choreographer and creative director Luam. She works on events, concerts, music videos, galas, and more with celebrities like Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Janelle Monae, and Kelly Rowland. The list goes on and on. I love Luam’s story of transitioning from a life in corporate America to a full time dance career and artist’s way of life, and then taking it even further with her
That’s what creating your moments is all about – taking a proactive approach to life. Welcome to the first episode of 2017! What a year it has been – there have been a lot of amazing moments, but I have also been put through the ringer, just like a lot of people I’ve talked to. I think it’s super important to acknowledge the things I’ve learned this year so that I can take action with them. I’ve learned a lot
The scope of your life, the size of it, is in direct proportion to how uncomfortable you’re willing to be. Today on the show I’m talking to returning guest Jon Levy, who has just come out with a book about the science of adventure. Last time Jon was on the show we talked about his influencer dinners, and how to bring people together. This time, we’re talking about something completely different: the science of adventure. Being an adventurer myself, I
I had no idea how it would evolve, I just went all in and I had no expectations, and I think that’s the best way to do it. In this week’s Nion highlight, I want to introduce you to a friend of mine that I met in Antarctica last year, Mark Van Der Heijden. When we met in Antarctica, Mark was doing a really cool project called The Backpacker Intern. For two years, Mark traveled around the world trading his
“I wanted to sing like Barbra Streisand and dance like Martha Graham.“ I’ve got a really exciting and special guest for you guys today. Donna Karan is an icon in the fashion industry, and the creator of her companies Donna Karan and DKNY, which are two of the largest fashion brands in the world. Her latest project, Urban Zen, is a fashion brand that embodies holistic living and also has a philanthropic side. Donna graduated from Parsons School of Design,
Photography is such a great thing, to be able to capture the moment and have it live past the actual moment. Today on the show you’ll hear part two of my interview with Cal Fussman. Cal is an expert interviewer and the writer of a great series in Esquire called What I Learned. He’s an all around great guy and is just fascinating to talk to. This half of the interview is definitely a little different, as Cal flips the
You can palm the basketball, that doesn’t mean you’re going to be a great basketball player – you’re gonna have to work at it. I was lucky enough to hear today’s guest Cal Fussman speak about the art of the interview on the Summit at Sea boat. Cal is an amazing storyteller, interviewer, and speaker. Having interviewed people like Jimmy Carter, Ted Kennedy, Richard Branson, Robert DeNiro, George Clooney, Muhammad Ali, and so many more, he has some amazing stories to
In personal branding it’s really about the people; It’s the person at the center, it’s the people that influence their lives, it’s the people that they touch. Being a creative entrepreneur can be a challenge, especially when it comes to branding and marketing yourself as a business. It’s important to be able to identify the things that you value, and to weave those into your mission. Today I’m talking to OG ShopTalk Radio guest Matthew Loyd, an expert brand strategist.
It’s one thing to want to do something and it’s another thing to just do it, whether or not anyone’s asked you to. Today I’m talking to one of the funniest guys I know, someone I’ve known since my Seattle days, Nick Thune. Since our time in the Northwest, he has moved down to Hollywood where he has become a big time comedian. He has had specials on Comedy Central, has been on tour all over the world, and is
Your self worth doesn’t equal what, how much, and who you’re working for. I’d be lying if I said the freelance entrepreneurial life was easy. There’s definitely phases of feast and famine, slow times and busy times. I go through dry spells with work, and I wanted to share what I’ve learned through these times. I’ve been talking to a lot of people lately about these different periods in their careers, so I thought I’d do an episode about it.
