Networking Power - John Graziano (Graz Makes)
Active networking is vital to professional growth and it is no different in the creative and maker communities. Networking is often confused with just the business and selling side of things. Networking though is actually about much more than that. Its about building long-term relationships, providing value and a good friendship over time. My guest today John Graziano from Graz Makes. He talks about his journey of how he found himself alongside some of the maker elite, such as Paul Jackman and Jimmy Diresta. We also talk Video Production and how his day job as a video producer has ruined Game of Thrones for him and we’ll learn some small ways of thinking about video production that could help you produce better videos Lets do this!

Navigating Self Doubt - Bob Clagett (I Like To Make Stuff)
I’m talking to a little unknown maker/ youtuber Bob Clagett. We are delving into his experience with self-doubt and how he only really began to encounter it later in life. We touch on his upbringing and the factors that can contribute to self-doubt later in life such as, past mistakes, Comparison, Feeling out of your comfort zone and Fear of failure or success Self-doubt occurs when we lack confidence or feel incapable of doing things we need to do. People who doubt themselves experience uncertainty around things they can’t control or worry about things not going according to plan. A certain level of self-doubt is good because it indicates that you understand what you need to improve in order to do a better job. However, persistent fear and self-doubt can hugely affect your life It was an absolute pleasure chatting with Bob and I know you’ll get something from this episode. So.... Lets do this!

Own Your Truth - Kristin and Justin are back
Have you ever felt just off about a project, or something feels not quite right in your life but you’re not sure how to change it? It’s painful and stressful to feel like you’re potentially living a lie. Like you’re hiding who you really are, saying what you think other people want to hear, and doing things you don’t actually want to do just because you’re supposed to.... Start a YouTube channel or post on social media constantly. Sometimes we don’t recognize we’re doing this. We just know we feel off, or something feels wrong, and we’re not sure how to change it. It makes sense that a lot of us struggle with being true to ourselves Due to popular demand and my lack of organizational skills Kristin my wife has come in an episode early to share her perspectives on owning your truth. We touch on 10 things you can do, to align yourself to own your own truth and be proud to be the person you are.  We reflect on the some of the most amazing guests on this podcast from past episodes. to end I drop a bomb, so be sure to stick around for that. hope you get something from this episode.

Trust Your Gut -Jonathan Jamieson (JJ Leathersmith)
Taking a leap of faith and trusting your gut takes courage, but it used to be standard operating practice. Intuition and instinct kept humans safe for thousands of years, but as we’ve evolved, we’ve learned to lean on data, discrediting our gut as dangerous. My guest today Jonathan Jamieson From JJ Leathersmith. Has honed his intuition over the years, and shares his journey of finding himself stranded in Mozambique trusting his gut to use his last amount of money to make a leather backpack of all things. That decision ultimately changed his life forever and he hasn't looked back Jonathan and I also talk about the advantages of trusting your gut over your head. and how you can build those gut trusting skills by implementing some simple techniques into your daily routines. Man if you are not inspired by this podcast I give up. So buckle up and get ready to get inspired and Lets do this! BTW his work is awesome and you should go check it out and support him.
