This is one of my favorite interviews ever!

In it, I share my origin story and spill the beans on how I grew a fanbase online.

In Part 1, I reveal how I became a full-time YouTuber, author, musician, and improv comedy instructor.

In Part 2, I name the authors and mentors who inspired me.

I also share my philosophy on pursuing your dreams and making a living on your own terms.

My friend Deb Gaut interviewed me last year on her “Tiny Sparks Big Flames” podcast, and she gave me permission to repost it on my Creative Entrepreneur Podcast
