"The Creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect, but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity.
The creative mind plays with the objects it loves."--Carl Jung

This week on The JellyVision Show Podcast we welcome Greg Tindale!
Since 2005, Greg has been studying, teaching, performing and directing Improv at Washington Improv Theater.  That same year, Greg became a creative entrepreneur by applying his improv training inside the corporate world to build the Greg Tindale Team, a real estate sales team with over $45,000,000.00 in sales. Greg is also currently working on a book with the rough title "A Beginner's Guide to Controlling the Universe - using Imagination, Improvisation and Existentialism to create your world" and we can't wait to read it!

We talk to Greg about his incredible journey to find his artistic voice and discover his purpose which includes time at the Amir Zoghi Retreat and getting kicked out of the Academy of Intuition. He shares with us all the lessons he learned along the way. We discuss sparking your imagination, the value of play, meditation and how tuning into your intuition will lead you to your true voice and with that, you can do anything!

Part of Greg's struggle during his journey was finding he and his wife penniless in Australia. We thought it was appropriate to invite his financial advisor and crisis manager, Brent Spifton to the show. Brent has a side career as a comedian for Hedge fund managers and has an uncomfortably close relationship to his calculator, Veronica. Luckily, Brent and Greg seem loyal to one another despite their differences and are even working on a movie together!
