Asking Yourself the Right Questions, with Khe Hy

This week I spoke with Khe Hy, writer of Rad Reads. We talk about asking ourselves important questions and looking deeper into our own basic assumptions.  Following the recurring theme of career transitions, Khe once worked for 15 years on Wall Street, which he quit after recognizing that success to him looked different than he had assumed. Now he's a writer, coach and teaches workshops on the organization and productivity tool, Notion.  I really loved the way Khe "nudges" people with the right questions (but in a supportive way).

Making Weird Projects Profitable with Jason Zook

This week, I recorded a conversation with Jason Zook.  Jason has one of the most unique career paths I've ever seen. He literally sold his last name (twice!) and has constantly done something unexpected in the creator space while still managing to make a solid income from it.   What I love and appreciate about Jason is how open is he is about sharing his ups and downs. His new book just hit the Amazon shelves. It's called Own Your Weird. We talk about pairing weirdness and business in this week's conversation...

We See, We Create.

Inside the mind of an artist, there is a revolution unfolding. And this revolution is their Life. It's what we witness around us; and the distinction between what we thought we knew, and what we come to understand. Because with each movement of feelings, each change in perspective, there is a lesson. And this lesson overthrows our previous belief. And this is our gift; the ability to take what we see and turn it into something beautiful. It could be art, a business, a way of greeting to someone new, a way of getting dressed in the morning, a particular approach to a hobby, a vision, a new sound... When we see and experience and turn it into something that expresses our discovery. It's this precious place, the settling in, the sound of this new understanding, that is the very source of our work. We see, we create. We see, we create... creative-caffeine.com
