Creativity Is The Future Of Economic Survival: Ep. 224

When I say artist I mean the one who is building things … some with a brush – some with a shovel – some choose a pen.” ~Jackson Pollock

We are living in exciting times as creators. Our stock is sky rocketing as corporations and economists realise that the creative class are responsible for generating innovative products, original ideas, cultural direction, change-making, dynamic design, authentic storytelling, and all things that can't be reproduced cheaply or easily. And if that's not enough, we are doing it with instincts that drive us to network, be resourceful, and with the intellect to value our freedom above comfort.

This week on The JellyVision Show, we dig into the definition and direction of the creative class, and what it means to live as a creative entrepreneur. Jump in the Jelly Jar with us as we swim in a pool of potential, and a time to rise to the occasion. This is our jam! 

You will also be joining us for this week's edition of Coffee Talk! We discuss the recent gaff by The American Red Cross when they published a pool safety poster that was criticized immediately for being racist. What the Red Cross did was bad, but the people commenting on the story online are just plain frightening.

If Not Now, When? Ep. 223


“How soon ‘not now’ becomes ‘never.'”
– Martin Luther

Someday I am going to write a book, travel to far off lands, start a business, lose weight, run a marathon, hike the Appalachian Trail, learn a new language, go back to school, and the list goes on and on.. These are life enhancing and life changing activities that we put off because we are waiting for the perfect time, to be worthy, and to not be scared. Yet, all we are doing is punishing ourselves by not doing them now. What can we do to make sure someday is today?

  • Put It on The Calendar
  • Set concrete goals related to what you want to do.
  • Make The Phone Call(s) to research, book reservations, tell a friend, etc
  • Ask A Friend To Join You--split the cost, share the fear!
  • Understand There May Not Be A Perfect Time
  • What if you found out you had one month to live--what would you do?
  • Make a tiny step TODAY towards making it happen

We also bring back an old school JVS segment, Coffee Talk, and trot out a new intro from our friend, Mark Johnson!

It's time to mix up the Jelly! Let us know what you think, and keep an ear out for additional show changes in the coming weeks. Change is Good!

Outrageous Habits for Radical Success Pt. 1: Ep. 221


"The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary." Vidal Sassoon

We are obsessing over a blog post we found on Entrepreneur.com whose title made our fingers twitchy enough to click the link and read it! How could we not click on this article:
14 Things Ridiculously Successful People Do Every Day  by Travis Bradberry.

We want to be ridiculously successful! Seriously, this is a topic we are severely invested in as uncommon entrepreneurs. We were all prepared to be disappointed like a five year old without a pony, by another fluffer nutter of a blog post, but it actually surprised us with its collective wisdom. We are rethinking so much!

Track with us on this episode and give us feedback on your ridiculous habits. Are you going to try any of these? Do you have your own radical habits that contribute to your success? You should really share those! :)
