THE BEST OF GROUND UP
GET STARTED W/ RICH ROLL
It’s never too late to turn things around. Today Rich Roll is an ultra-endurance athlete, author of the best-selling book Finding Ultra & has been named one of the world's 25 fittest men.
But only a few years back he was heading into middle-age unhealthy, overweight & overworked. How did he turn things around? He risked it all. I sat down with Rich to talk about the challenges he faced, how he grew his podcast to over 25 million downloads & his search to find meaning.
YOU WILL NEVER MAKE IT W/ CHRIS NEWHARD
Chris Newhard is an award-winning filmmaker and director of photography. He's also one of my closest friends. I sat down with him to talk about his work, some of his early struggles and what it was like working on massive projects with acts like Sia & Train.
MAKE CONTENT FOR YOURSELF W/ ELLIOTT ASHBY
You have to make content for yourself. As a content creator it can be easy to get caught up in distractions. You start making something because it fulfills a creative space in your mind. But soon enough you start focusing on tracking likes, retweets & your follower count.
The problem is that tracking these numbers don’t lead anywhere. And they kill the creative drive that got you started in the first place. That’s why you need to continue to make your art for yourself.
PERFECTION IS THE ENEMY W/ ALex Ferrari
Perfection is an illness. Alex Ferrari of Indie Film Hustle talks about how perfection slows you down and prevents you from creating.
