Some of the best advice I’ve gotten all year is to just make the messy version. Don’t be afraid to make something mediocre. We don’t begin at greatness. We don’t start out perfect and we’ll never arrive there anyway.
Something I’ve said lately is that I haven’t interviewed a single perfect person. No one has come onto the podcast and talked about a career where they were killing it from start to finish. That just doesn’t happen. On their road to the life and career they want, every guest has made a decision they were kicking themselves over later.
They either came out of the closet and lost friends or left an abusive marriage or left a well paying, but toxic day job.
More often than not I hear a story about how they didn’t move forward until they got out of their own way. They didn’t get out of their own way until they either got honest with themselves or finally took good advice or both.
On this week’s podcast, I spoke with singer/rapper @tamarabubble who I met last year in a music licensing course. While that class only emphasized to me that my heart was calling me to start my podcast, Tamara took the information and strategies we learned and in less than a year started to make a her mark in the music licensing game placing several songs on tv shows and trailers already.
It takes drive. It takes courage. It takes being okay with getting ignored. It takes making something mediocre, releasing that thing into the world, and moving on to make the next thing better.

It’s a milestone birthday for the Man, the Myth, the Legend ... Yes, my esteemed papa — Mr. Brian Potter — has taken an incredible ✨80✨TRIPS AROUND THE SUN as of today!

To know him is to love him and also to be thoroughly entertained by him. He is a true character, and this lovely lil’ globe we live on is 150x better because he’s graced it with his crazypants presence. ( ... I use that term with love, natch. 😏)

Anyway, here are some FABULOUS vintage photos of Mr. Potter, from before he left the UK for greener L.A. pastures ... Pls to enjoy. 💕
