#2 - Brewing a New Life with John Brand

#2 - Brewing a New Life with John Brand

Today I explore how John Brand, a finance guru, left a demanding career in the corporate world after 15 years and started the quickly expanding Open Outcry Brewery in Chicago. Despite his physical and emotional investment, he pivoted his career in ways people only dream of. In this episode you'll hear about what led to this transition and how John strategically approached it. You'll also get an inside look into how John uses fear of failure to motivate himself, how he methodically approaches life and work, how he defines the business recipe for success and how you can pursue the life you want to.

“Whatever it is you want to do, figure out a way to get there,

define what it is you want to do and then reverse engineer the

path on how to get there. “

#1 - Seeing Brave with Producer Dana Michelle Cook

#1 - Seeing Brave with Producer Dana Michelle Cook

Today, you’ll hear about one woman’s experience searching for her path and how it led to award-winning documentaries. Documentary filmmaker Dana Michelle Cook made a career shift when she realized reality TV wasn’t aligned with her authentic self and purpose. Her first documentary “Girls on the Run” won her an Emmy and her second documentary “The Empowerment Project” found worldwide acclaim as she showcased the careers of ordinary women across the U.S. Dana’s latest effort, “Seeing Brave” takes viewers into the lives of three women who have taken initiative to have an impact and make a change in the lives of others. Most important it reflects her connection to female empowerment and telling the stories of amazing women from around the world. In this episode, Dana and I also explore the narrative of women told on television, our own blind spots in the creative process, the nuances of the writing process, the challenges of sitting with your thoughts, and the morning and evening routines of a filmmaker.

how do you even know what you can do in your own life?”
