This podcast is all about getting started and moving past the fears and blocks and whatever else is getting the F-- in our way!

Often times it's ourselves.

Totally normal!

Doing the things talked about in the podcast works best with a community, with support and with talking about where you're at, what you're going through and whatever else may come up. 

Go to the contact page and email me your First and Last name so I can invite you to our Facebook community of innovators and creatives who are having these discussions and for more support from me! Including LIVE conversations and Q&A days and bonus: ask me whatever about podcasting!

Can't wait to meet you! Love you!

In an industry like entertainment, an artist can easily find themselves feeling like they aren't in control of their own experience. That goes for business, art and even identity. So how can one stay grounded and not buy into the outcome-driven needs of Hollywood?

My guest today is Mike Rauch, former Cartoon Network exec and co-founder of Rauch Brothers Animation and he shares his journey from the first moments he felt that spark for animating as well as for business to how he decided to not worry too much about how everyone else was doing it. Instead he focused his energies connecting to his "why" and what he believed in so he could bring work into this world that would represent voices he felt were missing from view.
