Nathan Vass is with us today! He is a filmmaker, photographer, writer, and he's balances all that with his love for another profession: Public Transit. Nathan is a bus driver for the City of Seattle! Today, Nathan and I talk about the crazy stories and intimate exchanges that happen between participants in public transit. We chat about what it's like to have a day job or side hustle that has seemingly nothing to do with your "real" hustle. We also talk about the small tiny changes that serve as the invitation for bravery in a given moment. We talk about comfort zones and how to put yourself out there as an artist. Please join me in welcoming the beloved Nathan Vass.
Nick Conedera is a film-maker and fellow brave artist. You're going to love some of the stuff we cover in today's episode. He is the guy behind the movie SHARP, which is available on iTunes and Amazon right now. (Go and watch it later, you will love it.)
He's also doing this fascinating project right now working with Hal Elrod who wrote the best-selling book titled "Miracle Morning." If you've been in the self-help scene in the last several years, then you know who Hal Elrod is. Now, Nick and I do some talking about the book, but what you'll learn from our conversation is some of the ways Nick is witnessing his own bravery through this project.
I just want to thank Nick publicly for getting raw and honest about what it means to struggle, how to ask for help, how to admit to reality, and for revealing what it means to wrestle with being disciplined in the life of making brave art. It takes a lot of guts to answer some of the questions I ask in this episode, but somehow... I had this inkling that Nick was up for the challenge.
And I think you'll agree with me he is a gracious communicator with a powerful perspective...
