E74: Make It A Problem First W/ Dave Swillum

Updated: Sep 15, 2020


If you have problem taking action this one’s for you. Solo episode w/ Dave in shorter length. I’ve seen countless creatives and business owners prevent themselves from taking the next steps because they come up with problems that don’t exist yet. They come up with how something will be a problem before knowing.

This episode is about walking through why it makes sense in some situations to actually cause a problem you need to solve to get your business or creative life moving forward. We can all say we don’t have time, its too much money, I can’t from this area, I don’t know the right people…….we can’t have these problems until it happens. Let’s talk it out on E74.

  • Taking an action

  • You can always solve a problem
