Creative Brain Overload

Creative Brain Overload

John Svedese is an incredible creator from podcasting to comic book illustration. He's brain (much like the rest of us) is moving pretty fast with a ton of ideas and projects. I'm not 100% sure if this is going to be a "how to" manage that process or a therapy session for both of us. But it'll be fun!

This is you know, people make fun of me because 27 00:01:40.280 --> 00:01:42.200 I wear a black shirt all the time, so I've been trying to mix 28 00:01:42.239 --> 00:01:47.319 it up. So black with some palm trees on it and a little sunset. 29 00:01:47.439 --> 00:01:49.519 I mean, I am in Puerto Rico, so I'm like, okay, 30 00:01:49.519 --> 00:01:52.480 whatever, maybe it's maybe that's cool. I'm here for I'm here for 31 00:01:52.519 --> 00:01:56.879 like twenty, twenty one more days. Okay, so I got twenty one 32 00:01:56.879 --> 00:02:00.000 more days. I'm just going to enjoy it and we're funky looking. Shure, 33 00:02:00.000 --> 00:02:02.359 it's not, not, not really, just this one time, all 34 00:02:02.439 --> 00:02:06.200 right. So anyway, let's get into a couple segments before we bring John 35 00:02:06.280 --> 00:02:13.840 on in. The first segment is that's news to me creating daily. All 36 00:02:13.960 --> 00:02:20.599 right, so today's news for you is that facebook has pod fades. I 37 00:02:20.719 --> 00:02:23.439 meant pod faded. I spelled that wrong. If you're wanted on the screen, 38 00:02:23.520 --> 00:02:28.080 is is one of those days. I do this every Monday through Friday, 39 00:02:28.120 --> 00:02:30.960 so you think I would be better at spelling by now. That I've 40 00:02:30.960 --> 00:02:34.120 been doing for a long time. Anyway. So facebook has pod faded. 41 00:02:34.159 --> 00:02:37.199 I'm if you've heard about this or not, but they just announced, I'm 42 00:02:37.240 --> 00:02:42.039 earlier this week, that just after a year of announcing that they were getting 43 00:02:42.039 --> 00:02:45.520 into the podcast game, now they are announcing that they are getting out of 44 00:02:45.520 --> 00:02:49.319 the podcast game. So we've all been, I know all you podcasters, 45 00:02:49.319 --> 00:02:53.520 we've all been zucked into thinking that podcast or that facebook actually like podcast. 46 00:02:53.800 --> 00:02:59.319 But facebook was like Mesh te verse and now they're just focused on the metaverse 47 00:02:59.400 --> 00:03:04.039 more so, to my knowledge, I believe all of those things are going 48 00:03:04.080 --> 00:03:07.520 away, like all of audio stuff, social audio rooms all that kind of 49 00:03:07.520 --> 00:03:13.120 fun stuff. Or maybe the audio live rooms are going to be a part 50 00:03:13.159 --> 00:03:16.319 of their facebook alive program but anyway, podcasters, I'm sorry. If you 51 00:03:16.319 --> 00:03:22.000 were looking forward to putting your podcast on Facebook, you can no longer do 52 00:03:22.039 --> 00:03:23.520 that and I believe they're doing away with the whole program by June third. 53 00:03:23.560 --> 00:03:27.759 So we get about another month. However, I don't think their stats are 54 00:03:27.879 --> 00:03:30.080 very good. I think they're like zero point three percent of all downloads for 55 00:03:30.400 --> 00:03:34.039 like the last month or last year or something crazy. I don't really keep 56 00:03:34.120 --> 00:03:36.879 up with all that stuff. I don't really care about Mark Zuckerberg, but 57 00:03:37.759 --> 00:03:39.000 just taught you no want to know. All Right, here we go. 58 00:03:39.199 --> 00:03:46.560 Created highlights, no cooking necessary and no assembly required. It's got to be 59 00:03:46.800 --> 00:03:50.159 fuck all right.

So I'm 78 00:05:00.839 --> 00:05:03.639 taking all this gear and stuff and I'm going back to North Carolina and I 79 00:05:03.680 --> 00:05:06.639 have some more gear and stuff there.

So all right, I'm back. I'm back. I'm 83 00:05:19.439 --> 00:05:24.319 not frazzled anymore. I'm not frazzled. All the nerves are out. John's 84 00:05:24.360 --> 00:05:27.839 coming up. I get my friend John Right here and it's better work. 85 00:05:27.920 --> 00:05:30.199 What is building? Has It going on? Good man, how are you? 86 00:05:30.519 --> 00:05:33.759 Thank you very very much for having me on the show today. Appreciate 87 00:05:33.839 --> 00:05:35.959 it. Yeah, man, well, I'm excited. Dude. You and 88 00:05:36.000 --> 00:05:43.079 I've connected several times throughout the last few years really in the podcasting space and 89 00:05:43.199 --> 00:05:46.120 you know, you got the vod squad, so you're really in the live 90 00:05:46.160 --> 00:05:48.800 streaming and video and in all that kind of fun stuff. And then I 91 00:05:48.839 --> 00:05:55.199 recently learned like you're an artist and comic, book guard and oil paintings and 92 00:05:55.439 --> 00:05:58.600 all kinds of stuff I didn't know. So I was you know, you 93 00:05:58.639 --> 00:06:02.079 and I were talking the other day actually on facebook rooms or whatever they call 94 00:06:02.160 --> 00:06:04.959 it, and and I was like, man, you do a lot of 95 00:06:04.959 --> 00:06:08.639 stuff. How in the world do you keep all that under your at and 96 00:06:08.720 --> 00:06:12.439 keep it organized? So maybe maybe, like I said earlier, maybe this 97 00:06:12.560 --> 00:06:15.560 is maybe we'll figure that out. Or maybe it'd be a therapy session for 98 00:06:15.600 --> 00:06:16.800 both of us, or maybe we'll just come up with something different, but 99 00:06:16.879 --> 00:06:21.720 anyway, maybe. So, maybe for people who are like who is John? 100 00:06:21.720 --> 00:06:25.160 Give us a little run down, because I don't normally do this on 101 00:06:25.199 --> 00:06:27.600 the show, but I'd love for people to know a little bit more about 102 00:06:27.639 --> 00:06:32.720 you. Sure, my name is John. I've been podcasting for just about 103 00:06:32.720 --> 00:06:40.560 three years now and you know, I've started multiple shows and have youtube channels 104 00:06:40.600 --> 00:06:46.480 and I'm an artist and I we just dropped a very own comic book the 105 00:06:46.519 --> 00:06:51.079 Other Day. I just I have my hands and so many different things as 106 00:06:51.120 --> 00:06:55.720 far as creation goes, as far as podcasting and and vodka, casting, 107 00:06:55.839 --> 00:07:00.319 live streaming and art, and it's just billy. It's so much. Yeah, 108 00:07:00.600 --> 00:07:03.560 it's just how do you how do you keep up with it? Do 109 00:07:03.560 --> 00:07:08.920 you have like a big whiteboard on your wall that says today I'm a Podcaster, 110 00:07:09.160 --> 00:07:12.600 tomorrow I'm a live streamer, like, how does that work? It's 111 00:07:12.639 --> 00:07:15.079 funny because I do. I do actually have a big white board over there, 112 00:07:15.160 --> 00:07:19.639 but I used it maybe once and and then I like I just forgot 113 00:07:19.680 --> 00:07:26.439 about it. But no, I have a I have my schedule on on 114 00:07:26.480 --> 00:07:30.160 an APP on my phone and it's just all about scheduling your time, you 115 00:07:30.199 --> 00:07:35.839 know, and just setting out brackets of time for each specific topic or subject 116 00:07:35.839 --> 00:07:40.360 that you're talking about, oh, that you have to work on and you 117 00:07:40.399 --> 00:07:43.959 know, and it's just it's a lot of organization. So if you're not 118 00:07:44.000 --> 00:07:48.519 an organized person or maybe chaos works for you. I know for me sometimes, 119 00:07:48.560 --> 00:07:50.399 you know, here in the studio it's a mess. You know, 120 00:07:50.439 --> 00:07:55.839 I have cups and bowls and all my work all over my desk and my 121 00:07:55.839 --> 00:08:01.600 wife yells at me and it's just yeah, so it chaos can can be 122 00:08:01.639 --> 00:08:07.920 good if that's how if that's how you keep inspired. Yeah, but but 123 00:08:09.040 --> 00:08:11.759 for me it's a it's a little bit of a mixture of both. You 124 00:08:11.800 --> 00:08:16.279 know, I have to have my schedule, you know, scheduled and then 125 00:08:16.399 --> 00:08:20.120 organized and then but in around my studio I have things all over the place. 126 00:08:20.199 --> 00:08:22.920 So yeah, so do you feel like like my wife is an artist, 127 00:08:22.920 --> 00:08:26.279 so she's a graphic designer. She she liked paints and stuff. Is 128 00:08:26.319 --> 00:08:31.480 like, you know, hobby and trawls and stuff like that, but and 129 00:08:31.600 --> 00:08:35.639 she's like just a messy person in general. Are you that way or you 130 00:08:35.639 --> 00:08:37.759 just kind of messy or are you kind of like I'm want to tidy up 131 00:08:37.759 --> 00:08:43.799 and then get messy? She's got a couple. Well, my wife's actually 132 00:08:43.840 --> 00:08:48.600 the same thing. My wife Paints also, she's a watercolor painter. Oh, 133 00:08:48.919 --> 00:08:50.720 they cool. Yeah, so. But See, the thing is that 134 00:08:50.759 --> 00:08:54.960 she her studios upstairs with the kids and the rest of the family. So 135 00:08:56.039 --> 00:08:58.879 she's always getting bothered by the little ones and, you know, me, 136 00:09:00.039 --> 00:09:01.200 I'm down here in the studio in the quiet, you know, and she's 137 00:09:01.200 --> 00:09:07.200 so she's always yelling at me. But but for me, I think it 138 00:09:07.200 --> 00:09:11.759 depends what I'm doing, like podcasting or vodcasting right now, you know, 139 00:09:11.840 --> 00:09:16.519 I cleaned up literally just behind me, what you can see. Yeah, 140 00:09:16.559 --> 00:09:22.159 if I'm painting, if I'm painting which take a closer look. Yeah, 141 00:09:22.320 --> 00:09:26.639 if I'm painting, which is literally right behind me, I need to have 142 00:09:26.720 --> 00:09:31.159 that clean, you know, and and have everything where I need it this 143 00:09:31.200 --> 00:09:33.480 way, because when I am painting and creating, I like to have everything 144 00:09:33.519 --> 00:09:37.320 in the hands reach, you know. Yeah, that makes sense, man, 145 00:09:37.360 --> 00:09:39.399 that makes sense. I you know, I don't know that I would 146 00:09:39.440 --> 00:09:41.639 call myself that type of Creator. I did own a screen printing business, 147 00:09:41.720 --> 00:09:48.279 but dude, I hate it every second of like creating screens and inks and 148 00:09:48.320 --> 00:09:50.720 all that kind of stuff. That's got to be messy. Yeah, dude, 149 00:09:50.799 --> 00:09:54.039 it was. It was pretty horrific. So so, Mane. So 150 00:09:54.200 --> 00:09:58.440 when did you like start on this creator journey, because, I mean, 151 00:09:58.480 --> 00:10:01.799 I don't once again, you're kind of odd man out here, because I'm 152 00:10:01.879 --> 00:10:05.279 just really curious, but I don't normally ask these types of questions. I 153 00:10:05.320 --> 00:10:09.480 really get into like how to stuff. But when did you like did you 154 00:10:09.480 --> 00:10:11.200 wake up when you're like five and like, I love to paint, or 155 00:10:11.320 --> 00:10:16.039 how did that happen for you? For me, it was always cartoons and 156 00:10:16.080 --> 00:10:18.919 comic books, you know. So when I was a kid, I try 157 00:10:18.960 --> 00:10:22.559 to draw what I seen on TV or I try to draw what I've seen 158 00:10:22.600 --> 00:10:30.000 in the books. And my mom, she was into advertising for Technology Company 159 00:10:30.039 --> 00:10:35.600 and called the Whiz, and so she was in that department and I used 160 00:10:35.600 --> 00:10:37.559 to go to work with her, you know, and so I was huge 161 00:10:37.600 --> 00:10:41.879 into art, comics, cartoons, and at home my mom had a drafting 162 00:10:41.919 --> 00:10:46.480 table, so I used to always sit at the drafting table and draw my 163 00:10:46.519 --> 00:10:50.559 little stuff. And Yeah, as far as oil painting goes, that's just 164 00:10:50.679 --> 00:10:56.200 it's something I think that I evolved into because you know, comic books and 165 00:10:56.279 --> 00:11:01.639 drawing with Pencils and inks were always my thing, but I think it was 166 00:11:01.679 --> 00:11:05.720 just an evolution of what I wanted to do with my art. Okay, 167 00:11:05.799 --> 00:11:09.840 Gotcha, man. So, so you kind of so you got into that. 168 00:11:09.919 --> 00:11:11.759 So and this kind of I feel like that's how all creators are to 169 00:11:11.799 --> 00:11:16.240 some extent, like we're like, you know, I started out. My 170 00:11:16.399 --> 00:11:20.639 first real journey and creatorship was probably, I don't know, like maybe in 171 00:11:20.759 --> 00:11:22.000 high school. You know, somebody was like hey, you, can you 172 00:11:22.000 --> 00:11:24.200 play the guitar and I'm like no, and then they show me how to 173 00:11:24.200 --> 00:11:26.600 play a Bass Guitar and I was like Oh that's cool. Now learned how 174 00:11:26.639 --> 00:11:31.519 to play Real Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, and then, you know, keys 175 00:11:31.559 --> 00:11:33.759 and all this other stuff, and maybe drums, a little bit, not 176 00:11:33.759 --> 00:11:37.440 not a lot. I should probably take that off the list actually, but 177 00:11:37.600 --> 00:11:41.840 it seems like that's kind of it, like you get this little taste of 178 00:11:41.039 --> 00:11:45.919 being a creator being, you know, I kind of getting that creative process 179 00:11:45.919 --> 00:11:50.600 moving in the kind of move into levels of that. So you said Eli 180 00:11:50.799 --> 00:11:54.720 podcasting and vodka casting for like three years. So how did that come into 181 00:11:54.759 --> 00:11:58.559 the mix? Like what attracted you to to this, this part of Creator. 182 00:11:58.679 --> 00:12:03.240 Um, I think that that that was really just me wanting to pick 183 00:12:03.320 --> 00:12:09.399 up another hobby and hang out with my friend, because one of my first 184 00:12:09.399 --> 00:12:13.039 shows was a show I did with with a cohost of mine, my friend 185 00:12:13.080 --> 00:12:18.120 of mine, and you know, so we would literally just hang out, 186 00:12:18.159 --> 00:12:22.480 just shoot the breeze and talk about old times, talk about, you know, 187 00:12:22.559 --> 00:12:26.159 Brooklyn, New York, which is where I'm from, and you know, 188 00:12:26.240 --> 00:12:30.159 and just the good old days and just movies, video games, general 189 00:12:30.159 --> 00:12:33.480 discussion stuff, and you know, it was it was a lot of fun. 190 00:12:33.600 --> 00:12:37.080 You know, I was like I go over to my friend, his 191 00:12:37.159 --> 00:12:37.720 name is frank, you know. I said, Hey, frank, you 192 00:12:37.759 --> 00:12:43.559 know, let's start a podcast. He's like what, and and I was 193 00:12:43.879 --> 00:12:46.039 yeah, let's let's do it. You know, like I'm listening to all 194 00:12:46.080 --> 00:12:50.879 these people on, you know, apple podcasts and I'm loving the show and 195 00:12:50.960 --> 00:12:54.279 I think I have a great idea for a format, a great idea for 196 00:12:54.639 --> 00:12:58.879 the way the show should go. And you know, that's what we did. 197 00:12:58.960 --> 00:13:01.000 You know, first it was just audio and then a couple of months 198 00:13:01.080 --> 00:13:07.720 later we introduced a camera and it just took off from there. Okay, 199 00:13:07.759 --> 00:13:11.440 Gotcha, man. So well, I was going to ask you like when 200 00:13:11.480 --> 00:13:15.720 you're because this is, you know, something I'm curious about because I I 201 00:13:15.720 --> 00:13:18.480 guess my wife probably keeps me accountable. But you know, because I have 202 00:13:18.519 --> 00:13:22.519 a lot of ideas. Man, like you know, born bread, kind 203 00:13:22.559 --> 00:13:26.679 of an entrepreneur by heart, by nature, but I've never wanted to go 204 00:13:26.759 --> 00:13:28.320 punch of time. I will, I'll go punch time clock, but I 205 00:13:28.320 --> 00:13:31.240 have to. But I don't really want to do that. I want to 206 00:13:31.240 --> 00:13:35.919 work for myself. But oftentimes, before I moved to Puerto Rico, man, 207 00:13:35.960 --> 00:13:39.039 I was kind of scattered, like I'd be doing my t shirt business 208 00:13:39.080 --> 00:13:43.080 and then some other opportunity to come along. I like, well, dabble 209 00:13:43.200 --> 00:13:45.960 that for a minute. Still kind of do the t shirts on the side. 210 00:13:46.039 --> 00:13:48.600 Do you find yourself kind of doing that as a creator, or you 211 00:13:48.639 --> 00:13:52.919 are you focus, like I'm doing illustrations for comic books and working with people, 212 00:13:52.960 --> 00:13:54.240 you know, as an artist, and then I'm doing podcasting. It's 213 00:13:54.240 --> 00:13:58.600 like a hobby. Or How do you separate those? Again, it comes 214 00:13:58.639 --> 00:14:03.159 down to organizing your time, you know, because if you want to do 215 00:14:03.279 --> 00:14:09.519 something wholeheartedly and at a hundred percent, you have to dedicate time to it 216 00:14:09.559 --> 00:14:15.159 because you know you can't split your mind saying okay, I'm today, I 217 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:18.240 have to work on comic books, I have to record a podcast, I 218 00:14:18.240 --> 00:14:20.919 have to edit video, I have to make social media pictures, you know, 219 00:14:22.039 --> 00:14:24.960 and you have to bracket your time and work on specific things all at 220 00:14:26.000 --> 00:14:31.279 once, at once to get the best effort you can. You know, 221 00:14:31.360 --> 00:14:37.639 because I've noticed that. You know, I can set certain days to where, 222 00:14:37.679 --> 00:14:41.200 okay, Monday, Wednesday and Friday I'll work on the comic book stuff, 223 00:14:41.320 --> 00:14:46.200 Tuesday and Thursday and maybe even Saturday I can do the podcasting stuff. 224 00:14:46.399 --> 00:14:50.799 So you know, you have to realize, okay, well, if I'm 225 00:14:50.799 --> 00:14:56.000 going to drop a podcast on Monday's then you know I can't record any later 226 00:14:56.080 --> 00:15:00.879 than Friday because then I have Saturday I have to at it and all that. 227 00:15:01.000 --> 00:15:03.559 So you have to get everything ready for Monday. So you just it's 228 00:15:03.559 --> 00:15:09.120 about organization, you know, I think, and you know again, if 229 00:15:09.159 --> 00:15:13.919 you want, if you if you really really want to make a product, 230 00:15:15.039 --> 00:15:18.759 to make a podcast, a show, a book, you have to devote 231 00:15:18.799 --> 00:15:22.879 a hundred percent of your attention to it when you're working on it. Okay, 232 00:15:24.000 --> 00:15:26.120 yeah, man, I like that thought because, you know, I 233 00:15:26.159 --> 00:15:28.879 think a lot of times people and I'm not going to say people who aren't 234 00:15:28.919 --> 00:15:31.679 creatives, because I don't think there's like a I don't think it's fair to 235 00:15:31.679 --> 00:15:35.600 say who and who is. I think everyone is creative. It just depends 236 00:15:35.639 --> 00:15:41.519 on like what projects. But people who tend to be real driven, for 237 00:15:41.679 --> 00:15:45.440 one thing, I'll say it that way. They often look at my life, 238 00:15:45.440 --> 00:15:46.679 for my wife's life, and like well, you guys should just focus 239 00:15:46.720 --> 00:15:50.159 on one thing, like for forty hours a week. You shouldn't do anything 240 00:15:50.159 --> 00:15:52.639 else. And we're both neither one of us are gear like that. So 241 00:15:52.679 --> 00:15:56.399 we're you know, I'm working on this podcast, this daily show, I 242 00:15:56.399 --> 00:16:00.279 get a fishing show I work on, I got Amazon live, you know, 243 00:16:00.360 --> 00:16:04.480 business I'm working on. I'm also coaching a few people, for lack 244 00:16:04.519 --> 00:16:08.600 of a better term, like helping them in their creator journey. And so 245 00:16:08.840 --> 00:16:12.399 what you're right, it's don't try to be a hundred percent. You can't 246 00:16:12.399 --> 00:16:15.600 be a hundred percent with everything all the time, but carve out that space 247 00:16:15.600 --> 00:16:18.159 and be a hundred percent in that moment with that project. I like, 248 00:16:18.200 --> 00:16:22.559 Hey, frame that up, because you know, oftentimes it's like I do 249 00:16:22.679 --> 00:16:26.039 today. I do need to shoot this show, I do have a virtual 250 00:16:26.519 --> 00:16:30.759 recording I'm doing for someone else. I do you have for podcasts that I 251 00:16:30.799 --> 00:16:36.679 need to edit and get ready to publish for my other show in and sometimes 252 00:16:36.679 --> 00:16:40.159 that is overwhelming it and it'll almost get to where, I don't know if 253 00:16:40.200 --> 00:16:41.480 you're like this, man, but if I have too much to do, 254 00:16:41.960 --> 00:16:47.320 if I get too mental about it, I will just pause and get paralyzed 255 00:16:47.399 --> 00:16:49.159 and do nothing at all. And you find, yes, you find yourself 256 00:16:49.159 --> 00:16:53.759 like that. Yes, yes, that happens quite often for me because, 257 00:16:55.039 --> 00:16:56.320 especially in the morning, like I'll be tired, you know, and I'll 258 00:16:56.360 --> 00:16:59.519 be like, all right, I have this, this, this and this 259 00:16:59.600 --> 00:17:03.559 to do. I don't want to do any of it. But you have 260 00:17:03.680 --> 00:17:07.440 to, I think, to get out of that. You have to think 261 00:17:07.440 --> 00:17:11.559 about how bad do you want it? Like for me, with comic books, 262 00:17:11.400 --> 00:17:15.359 I've since I was a kid. I think every kid wants to have 263 00:17:15.400 --> 00:17:17.759 their own comic book, you know, they want to draw and make their 264 00:17:17.799 --> 00:17:19.880 own books, and for me that was it. You know, that was 265 00:17:19.960 --> 00:17:23.000 a drive. I've always wanted my own book. I know I can draw, 266 00:17:23.079 --> 00:17:26.359 I know I have the technology here in the studio to do it, 267 00:17:26.440 --> 00:17:30.519 so I have to do it like it's just a dream come true, and 268 00:17:30.599 --> 00:17:34.759 that's what I did and I built a an independent comic book publisher with a 269 00:17:34.799 --> 00:17:40.799 partner and we just sprouted from there. You know, we signed on other 270 00:17:40.920 --> 00:17:45.400 artists, we signed on other writers and we just got our first batch of 271 00:17:45.440 --> 00:17:49.400 print the yesterday. Well, and gratulations, thank you very much. And 272 00:17:51.079 --> 00:17:55.279 we got we got something like five Thou books here in the studio and we're 273 00:17:55.319 --> 00:17:57.279 looking to sell them now, you know. So it's we're going to market. 274 00:17:57.279 --> 00:18:02.680 We have conventions a signed up for the whole month of May all the 275 00:18:02.680 --> 00:18:07.119 way up to July that we're making appearances and doing signings and it's just it's 276 00:18:07.160 --> 00:18:11.880 amazing, you know, and you know, I couldn't have done that without 277 00:18:11.960 --> 00:18:15.359 the structure, without the drive, you know, without saying, okay, 278 00:18:15.440 --> 00:18:19.880 I've wanted this since I was five years old and I'm going to make it 279 00:18:19.920 --> 00:18:22.960 happen. You know, the same thing with podcasting and live streaming is, 280 00:18:23.039 --> 00:18:26.799 you know, you sure, you want your show to grow, you want 281 00:18:26.799 --> 00:18:30.440 it to be the best that I can be and who knows, your show 282 00:18:30.480 --> 00:18:34.279 may lead into sitting down and talking with famous people or people important in an 283 00:18:34.319 --> 00:18:38.960 industry and you have deadlines to make and you want sponsors, you want to 284 00:18:40.000 --> 00:18:44.039 monetize your show and you know, they're all are a whole bunch of goals 285 00:18:44.079 --> 00:18:48.119 that you can set for your show. You can drive and strive to be 286 00:18:48.200 --> 00:18:53.119 and you know, I think that that drive should be what gets you out 287 00:18:53.160 --> 00:18:57.359 of those slumps. Yeah, and this is this is good information, because 288 00:18:59.079 --> 00:19:00.319 you know, I love they said that you want to listen to your five 289 00:19:00.400 --> 00:19:03.599 years old, because I think you know, it's easy for us to live 290 00:19:03.640 --> 00:19:07.000 in, and I'm like this at times, like to live in a society 291 00:19:07.039 --> 00:19:11.599 where everything's really fast. I talked about this yesterday with Chris Faglert a little 292 00:19:11.640 --> 00:19:15.480 bit. It's like everybody wants instantaneous microwaveable goods. It's like, Oh, 293 00:19:15.480 --> 00:19:18.279 it's put in the MIC way, skies go, let's go.

We and these are my two that 307 00:20:11.640 --> 00:20:18.440 I actually drew and I wrote this one. Wow, this one.

All right, so 332 00:21:56.039 --> 00:21:59.680 we're gonna you're going to send me that link after after here, I'm going 333 00:21:59.720 --> 00:22:03.079 to make sure it's in the show notes and anybody wants to go buy one, 334 00:22:03.400 --> 00:22:06.000 go, go do that. And so, man, here's the thing. 335 00:22:06.039 --> 00:22:08.680 I'm in Puerto Rico. If I buy one, can you kind of 336 00:22:08.680 --> 00:22:11.200 hold a form and ship it to me later when I get back into Lee? 337 00:22:11.759 --> 00:22:15.920 Okay, cooling, all right, cool, because that's awesome, dude. 338 00:22:15.039 --> 00:22:18.119 I want to support you. Know what you're doing and I check it 339 00:22:18.119 --> 00:22:21.720 out. Man, I think that's super dope. And or they digital as 340 00:22:21.720 --> 00:22:26.319 well, or they just physical copies. Did their digital as well? We 341 00:22:26.400 --> 00:22:29.200 just got the physicals in yesterday, but they've been digital for I want to 342 00:22:29.200 --> 00:22:33.559 say about the past month, okay, and and they're available on Amazon and 343 00:22:33.599 --> 00:22:37.359 soon to be Barnes and noble to Congrat Man. It's so sick, man. 344 00:22:37.400 --> 00:22:38.960 I know, I know, I get we connected over podcasting and live 345 00:22:38.960 --> 00:22:42.039 streaming. I don't know. I don't know Jack about art or comic books, 346 00:22:42.079 --> 00:22:45.039 but I'm like, I just love it. I love to see people 347 00:22:45.160 --> 00:22:51.240 when you know that's a part of the show too. Is like celebrating creators 348 00:22:51.319 --> 00:22:55.240 and different forms and fashions, and you know, we're all MULTII, I 349 00:22:55.279 --> 00:22:59.039 believe, to some degree. And so that's pretty awesome, man. So 350 00:22:59.079 --> 00:23:02.839 with your projects, with your art or with your podcast, I mean you 351 00:23:02.880 --> 00:23:07.200 can kind of pick one or both. Are you giving yourself hard timelines or 352 00:23:07.400 --> 00:23:11.519 you letting this thing kind of take its own life form and work through the 353 00:23:11.519 --> 00:23:17.960 process? I guess that depends on what you're working on, you know, 354 00:23:18.039 --> 00:23:21.720 because for a podcast, you know, if you're working on episodes and you 355 00:23:21.759 --> 00:23:25.519 have deadlines, you know your week after week, unless you're the type of 356 00:23:25.559 --> 00:23:29.880 person that records a bunch of episodes all at once and then you can just 357 00:23:30.039 --> 00:23:33.759 slowly leak them out, you know, and week after week. But as 358 00:23:33.759 --> 00:23:37.960 far as the the comics in the art goes, yeah, that's strictly deadline 359 00:23:37.079 --> 00:23:41.039 driven. You know, there are deadlines. We have a bunch of stuff 360 00:23:41.079 --> 00:23:47.079 going on that our time sensitive. So suffice it to say, my my 361 00:23:47.200 --> 00:23:52.920 day is fairly scheduled out where in the morning I get up and, you 362 00:23:52.960 --> 00:23:57.839 know, I check my emails and I go through all my legacy comics stuff, 363 00:23:59.160 --> 00:24:02.079 stuff that I need to get done for the day. I like to 364 00:24:02.119 --> 00:24:06.000 do the most important things in the morning, get those done, get those 365 00:24:06.000 --> 00:24:08.599 out of the way, and and then the rest of the day is just 366 00:24:08.640 --> 00:24:12.480 going down the list of things I have to do that come up and then 367 00:24:12.519 --> 00:24:18.720 and then occasionally be an occasional emergency, you know, whatever emergency stuff comes 368 00:24:18.759 --> 00:24:22.720 up. I got that I got have that needs my attention. I take 369 00:24:22.799 --> 00:24:26.119 care of so so. Man, in your creative process, are you like? 370 00:24:26.680 --> 00:24:30.960 I always find this pretty interesting. In my wife is notorious for what 371 00:24:30.079 --> 00:24:33.720 I'm about to ask you. What are you writing stuff? Are you getting 372 00:24:33.759 --> 00:24:37.000 it out of your brain? Is that helpful? Or what's going on there? 373 00:24:37.039 --> 00:24:40.480 Are you just keeping it all in and working on it out of your 374 00:24:40.480 --> 00:24:45.480 brain, or you got it to do list? I mean I I have 375 00:24:45.559 --> 00:24:51.119 bullet list of things that need to get done, but, as far as 376 00:24:51.160 --> 00:24:52.880 you know, working I like right now, I know what I have to 377 00:24:52.920 --> 00:24:57.359 do today and I'll just I'll just do it and later on, tonight, 378 00:24:57.519 --> 00:25:02.240 or maybe even tomorrow morning, I'll go back over my lesson cross stuff off. 379 00:25:02.240 --> 00:25:06.720 You know that that I have accomplished. Okay, Gotcha. Now are 380 00:25:06.799 --> 00:25:08.880 you doing? I know you. You know. I don't know if you 381 00:25:08.920 --> 00:25:12.559 are now because you're busy, you know, getting ready launch all all these 382 00:25:12.559 --> 00:25:17.400 books. Man, it is so sick. But are you still helping people 383 00:25:17.400 --> 00:25:18.920 with podcasting? Is at a part of Your Business Plan, or if you're 384 00:25:19.039 --> 00:25:22.759 just doing it for yourself now? That's more of a hobby, you know, 385 00:25:22.920 --> 00:25:26.279 because look, as you know, I told you that I used to 386 00:25:26.279 --> 00:25:30.799 have a show called from podcast of vodcast where I helped people level up their 387 00:25:30.880 --> 00:25:36.440 show. And Yeah, like, I like doing that, but at the 388 00:25:36.440 --> 00:25:41.839 same time I wanted to help people level up, but I wanted to level 389 00:25:41.920 --> 00:25:48.119 up my show at the same time. So so I stopped doing that podcast 390 00:25:48.119 --> 00:25:52.920 and but I didn't stop with trying to connect to people and trying to help 391 00:25:52.960 --> 00:25:56.079 them. Like I'll help anybody I can. If I connect with you on 392 00:25:56.079 --> 00:26:00.400 show social media and you put a question out there, or even if you 393 00:26:00.440 --> 00:26:03.920 know directed towards me, you know I will help you. I'll do a 394 00:26:03.920 --> 00:26:07.559 live stream with you, I'll get on with you and I will help you 395 00:26:07.680 --> 00:26:10.640 anyway I can. Yeah, yeah, man, I know that's be true. 396 00:26:10.680 --> 00:26:14.839 Your I see in a lot of podcasting communities give an information and helping 397 00:26:14.880 --> 00:26:17.839 people and all that kind of stuff. So that's a lot of fun, 398 00:26:17.920 --> 00:26:21.319 man. Really appreciate man, appreciate your story. First of all, I 399 00:26:21.319 --> 00:26:25.200 appreciate you, you know, tell this all the stuff that you do and 400 00:26:25.200 --> 00:26:30.519 how you stay organized, because you're probably one of the most diverse creators I 401 00:26:30.599 --> 00:26:36.519 know that does stuff professionally, both as like podcasting and live streaming, and 402 00:26:36.559 --> 00:26:40.720 also, you know, being an artist for yourself, for your own company 403 00:26:40.839 --> 00:26:44.960 and doing all the management and, you know, CEO work that you're doing, 404 00:26:45.000 --> 00:26:48.400 but then you're also doing some work for other people, like you're taking 405 00:26:48.400 --> 00:26:51.519 on commissions projects and stuff like that as well. Is that what it's called 406 00:26:51.680 --> 00:26:55.559 in the art world? Yeah, I'd take on painting commissions all the time. 407 00:26:55.720 --> 00:26:59.079 You know, I'm doing one now. You know, some guy wanted 408 00:26:59.119 --> 00:27:04.079 me to paint him as as a cling on from Star Trek. So okay, 409 00:27:04.079 --> 00:27:07.799 that's pretty cool. That's pretty funny. Yeah, man, that's pretty 410 00:27:07.799 --> 00:27:11.519 fun. I might have to call you up. I might have to have 411 00:27:11.519 --> 00:27:15.400 have something done for creating daily I had a had a guy who reached out 412 00:27:15.440 --> 00:27:17.680 to me. He's like yeah, man, I want to I want to 413 00:27:17.720 --> 00:27:19.319 do something for you, you know whatever, like a live stream logo. 414 00:27:19.559 --> 00:27:22.640 But, you know, you sent it back to me it was the traditional 415 00:27:22.720 --> 00:27:27.200 like Gamer style, like crossed arms, like mean face, and I'm like, 416 00:27:27.440 --> 00:27:30.599 I don't know, man, that's probably not going to work. So 417 00:27:32.160 --> 00:27:34.400 it's all about branding, you know, like yeah, right, I know 418 00:27:34.440 --> 00:27:38.640 a little about that. So well, dude, I like literally put this 419 00:27:38.680 --> 00:27:41.680 whole show together in about three hours. When I don't like, you know 420 00:27:41.720 --> 00:27:45.799 what I think, I want to do something different and it was really there 421 00:27:45.920 --> 00:27:48.160 was no, you know, real action plan to it. It was just 422 00:27:48.240 --> 00:27:52.920 like I'm just gonna do it, and so probably needs a lot of work 423 00:27:52.960 --> 00:27:55.839 on the branding side and all that kind of stuff, but I love it. 424 00:27:55.880 --> 00:27:57.400 I love the tape with the creating daily on it. It's great. 425 00:27:57.519 --> 00:28:02.000 It's great. Thanks, thanks Canada, for all those elements. I just 426 00:28:02.079 --> 00:28:06.160 throw on one top of each other and with him that's at that's so what 427 00:28:06.240 --> 00:28:07.599 are some of your favorite? I'll ask you. So I'll ask you some 428 00:28:07.599 --> 00:28:11.119 of this stuff because I think it's kind of interesting. What are some of 429 00:28:11.200 --> 00:28:15.960 your favorite creator tools that you're using? And once again, I'm giving me 430 00:28:17.000 --> 00:28:21.640 the option or both for, you know, artist or podcast, vodkast, 431 00:28:21.720 --> 00:28:26.480 or whichever one you want. Okay, actually one that serves both of them 432 00:28:26.559 --> 00:28:32.160 is photoshop. I use photoshop daily, exclusively. Most of the time. 433 00:28:32.920 --> 00:28:38.359 I pay for the subscription, which it works out for me because, you 434 00:28:38.400 --> 00:28:41.839 know, again, I'm using it every day. I'm creating graphics all the 435 00:28:41.880 --> 00:28:47.759 time for whether it be social media or for comic books or for Podcasting, 436 00:28:48.359 --> 00:28:52.400 you know. So Photoshop is definitely one of them. I I honestly, 437 00:28:52.440 --> 00:28:56.720 I'm sorry to say, I don't really use CANVA that much? Oh yeah, 438 00:28:56.799 --> 00:29:00.000 right, I mean that's like that's like I've used photoshop, I don't 439 00:29:00.039 --> 00:29:03.519 know, man, forever. It seems like, probably since I was like 440 00:29:03.519 --> 00:29:07.160 eighteen or something. Thirty, ill, mean thirty six this year, so 441 00:29:07.160 --> 00:29:11.720 a really long time. And then I was like creating all these these care 442 00:29:11.799 --> 00:29:15.039 cells for instagram and at one point, and I was like man, I'm 443 00:29:15.119 --> 00:29:18.160 working really hard in the someone's like, dude, I need try canva and 444 00:29:18.200 --> 00:29:21.440 I'm like, Oh, yeah, I'm just taking because I'm just taking cheesy 445 00:29:21.480 --> 00:29:23.559 pictures of myself putting him on a temple, you know, basically, and 446 00:29:23.599 --> 00:29:26.799 it's like, okay, I'm done. See. I guess it's all use 447 00:29:26.880 --> 00:29:30.279 case space to it's like, you know, some people that are doing graphics 448 00:29:30.359 --> 00:29:33.680 is like if you're you know, if you're not trying to produce, I 449 00:29:33.720 --> 00:29:38.279 think for you, man, you're probably customizing all of these elements for yourself, 450 00:29:38.279 --> 00:29:41.960 for your clients or whoever. So I think that's a big difference in 451 00:29:42.039 --> 00:29:45.000 canvas, like you don't have all those options over in Canva. It's just 452 00:29:45.160 --> 00:29:48.799 kind of our it's kind of like colloging, I would call I wouldn't call 453 00:29:48.839 --> 00:29:53.200 it designing, I would call it collaging, colloge and and you know what, 454 00:29:53.279 --> 00:29:56.119 if you don't have the money to pay for Photoshop, there's an free 455 00:29:56.160 --> 00:30:02.559 option called photop photo caps, like former shop. Yeah, okay, interesting. 456 00:30:02.799 --> 00:30:06.079 Yeah, my wife pays for the whatever the suite is or whatever. 457 00:30:06.200 --> 00:30:07.960 Yeah, don't be sweet. Yeah, yeah, I just I think she 458 00:30:08.039 --> 00:30:11.559 gets how many you get? A few computers on that right, two or 459 00:30:11.599 --> 00:30:15.240 three, something like that. I think I just got the one license, 460 00:30:15.319 --> 00:30:18.319 Ye, for this one computer. Oh, Gotcha, Gotcha. Yeah, 461 00:30:18.359 --> 00:30:21.200 somehow my watch, I think maybe she gets I can't remember. Whatever we 462 00:30:21.240 --> 00:30:25.119 did, who knows? But anyway, enough of that. Well, John 463 00:30:25.160 --> 00:30:27.079 Man, is there anything that we I mean, I think you gave us 464 00:30:27.079 --> 00:30:30.319 some really good action tips, really good stuff to think about. If we 465 00:30:30.359 --> 00:30:34.559 are multiiving creators, you know, make your to do list, block your 466 00:30:34.599 --> 00:30:40.119 time, really focus a hundred percent when you're trying to work on something. 467 00:30:40.440 --> 00:30:42.799 Is there anything else that you would like to drop on us to say, 468 00:30:42.839 --> 00:30:48.880 Hey, here's the best practice that you found throughout your career. Do your 469 00:30:48.960 --> 00:30:56.119 research, especially with podcasting. When I first started, I wanted to sound 470 00:30:56.160 --> 00:31:00.720 awesome, I wanted to sound amazing. I was seeing a lot of people 471 00:31:00.839 --> 00:31:03.039 talk about how you can just record your podcast on your cell phone and you 472 00:31:03.079 --> 00:31:07.079 could just, you know, buy this mic that, you know, listens 473 00:31:07.079 --> 00:31:10.400 to the whole room, and I didn't want that. You know, I 474 00:31:10.440 --> 00:31:12.319 wanted the best for my show. If you're going to do something, do 475 00:31:12.359 --> 00:31:15.400 it a hundred percent. Go big or go home, you know. So 476 00:31:17.039 --> 00:31:19.119 you want to start a podcast, I'm not saying spend five, six hundred 477 00:31:19.119 --> 00:31:22.799 dollars on a microphone. I'm saying you can get a decent, good microphone 478 00:31:22.880 --> 00:31:26.519 for a hundred and fifty, two hundred bucks. Yeah, you know, 479 00:31:26.720 --> 00:31:30.559 and just connected right into rite into your computer at better than it's better than 480 00:31:30.599 --> 00:31:34.039 a cell phone. Yeah, man, go bigger, go home, buildy, 481 00:31:34.400 --> 00:31:37.799 go, go big, go, buy your roadcaster and SMSVB. Don't 482 00:31:37.839 --> 00:31:41.200 be a loser. Now, I'm just kid. Don't be a loser. 483 00:31:41.440 --> 00:31:45.960 Younna be about you get there. I did. Yeah, I built up. 484 00:31:45.960 --> 00:31:48.920 I slowly built up my stuff. You know, it's all. It 485 00:31:48.000 --> 00:31:51.920 works. Yeah, man's well, dude, I tell people this all the 486 00:31:51.960 --> 00:31:55.000 time. Like I started this live stream fishing show, probably similar to you 487 00:31:55.119 --> 00:31:59.799 three, about three years ago, and I literally borrowed gear. I borrowed 488 00:31:59.920 --> 00:32:02.119 stuff from my neighbor, I borrowed I think it. Borrow stuff from like 489 00:32:02.200 --> 00:32:07.400 three people, cameras, all kinds of crap. I just was like Hey, 490 00:32:07.440 --> 00:32:08.839 can I use that for a couple you know, like a couple weeks 491 00:32:08.920 --> 00:32:12.960 until I figured this out, and then, once I did, then buy 492 00:32:12.960 --> 00:32:15.200 a piece of gear and, you know, whatever that by another piece of 493 00:32:15.200 --> 00:32:19.640 gear and then I just kept reinvesting, reinvesting, reinvesting. And so, 494 00:32:20.359 --> 00:32:23.039 yeah, man, it's not overnight, that's for sure. It's just like 495 00:32:23.079 --> 00:32:27.759 anything else. Like you didn't wake up just drawing like a professional. I 496 00:32:27.799 --> 00:32:30.160 mean you will spent hours doing it, you know. Well, well, 497 00:32:30.200 --> 00:32:35.359 maybe you did. Know you and see. All right, like this bugs 498 00:32:35.400 --> 00:32:38.599 me that when people say they can't draw, okay, because anybody, I 499 00:32:38.640 --> 00:32:44.440 believe anybody can draw anybody. You know what, I have agreed with you 500 00:32:44.799 --> 00:32:47.759 all this time, John, until right now, because actually know, I 501 00:32:47.799 --> 00:32:52.279 haven't even tried. But yeah, I don't even know. You know, 502 00:32:52.319 --> 00:32:54.680 I thought at one point I like, man, I think I really want 503 00:32:54.680 --> 00:32:58.440 to draw stuff because I have some thoughts in my brand, like if I 504 00:32:58.480 --> 00:33:00.400 could just put them on paper, not even to make money off of it, 505 00:33:00.440 --> 00:33:04.200 just to get it out of my head, you know. So maybe 506 00:33:04.240 --> 00:33:07.319 I should work on that. Maybe this is anybody can draw the what's the 507 00:33:07.359 --> 00:33:10.039 saying? If you do something for tenzero hours, you're a professional or something 508 00:33:10.119 --> 00:33:15.400 like that. Yeah, that was from somebody who didn't have kids, right. 509 00:33:15.480 --> 00:33:20.920 That person is delusional with no kids. That's their problem. It's MES 510 00:33:20.960 --> 00:33:23.680 it. Oh Man. Well, John Man, I really appreciate your brother. 511 00:33:23.759 --> 00:33:28.519 I think you do some amazing things in the Creator community, in serving 512 00:33:28.559 --> 00:33:30.960 people, and I love that you launch your comic book.

I'm gonna try to bring this in and 515 00:33:37.400 --> 00:33:40.200 maybe I got this correct. No, you're not in there all that. 516 00:33:40.279 --> 00:33:45.119 I'm going to get you in there, though. Here we go. There 517 00:33:45.160 --> 00:33:49.119 we go. Hey, now we're cooking with oil.

So I appreciate your brother. Thanks so 541 00:35:15.960 --> 00:35:19.960 much, man. Thanks Billy. All right, I mean, thank you. 542 00:35:20.400 --> 00:35:23.719 All right. That is it for creating daily. Today, may third. 543 00:35:23.760 --> 00:35:27.159 Tomorrow is may fourth. May the fourth be with you, which I 544 00:35:27.159 --> 00:35:30.599 don't know anything about, but I do know we're doing a creator a round 545 00:35:30.599 --> 00:35:35.000 table tomorrow. So if you are a creative, a creator, a podcaster, 546 00:35:35.079 --> 00:35:37.679 really party podcaster, live streamer, we're going to be talking about the 547 00:35:37.800 --> 00:35:44.840 shows, segments of shows, formats of shows. I am actually brainstorming some 548 00:35:44.880 --> 00:35:47.239 different segments for this show, so that's kind of my motivation. Little bit 549 00:35:47.280 --> 00:35:52.360 of selfish motivation there, but I'm really curious, you know, is it 550 00:35:52.440 --> 00:35:54.840 important? Our segments important? You know, what types of segments have you 551 00:35:54.840 --> 00:35:58.280 seen that you really like? So if you want to be a part of 552 00:35:58.320 --> 00:36:00.199 that Creator Round Table, all you have to do is join me. I'm 553 00:36:00.199 --> 00:36:04.840 going to be alive on clubhouse and be alive all the all these places you're 554 00:36:04.840 --> 00:36:08.000 probably watching right now, also live on guild. So the three places you 555 00:36:08.000 --> 00:36:14.199 can actually get in touches like bullhorn, guild or clubhouse. I think I 556 00:36:14.320 --> 00:36:16.559 might have those audio things worked out tomorrow. We'll see. We'll see, 557 00:36:16.559 --> 00:36:21.719 but anyway, or if you actually want to be on video, you can 558 00:36:21.760 --> 00:36:23.400 send me a message, I can send you a link and we can connect 559 00:36:23.480 --> 00:36:27.719 and I'll actually bring you on the show with me and we can we can 560 00:36:27.760 --> 00:36:29.480 do the round table that way. So if you want to be a part 561 00:36:29.519 --> 00:36:31.199 of that, let me know. But it's going to be having tomorrow at 562 00:36:31.239 --> 00:36:36.360 two PM Eastern, one PM Central. And Yeah, so make sure if 563 00:36:36.360 --> 00:36:37.719 you want to be on, you send me a message, I'll send you 564 00:36:37.719 --> 00:36:40.360 a link. Save your spot. I can only bring so many people on 565 00:36:40.400 --> 00:36:45.239 at one time and then and we could bring in as many many people we 566 00:36:45.280 --> 00:36:47.119 want on guild.
