“Who is this guy?” That’s what I asked myself when I first saw his work. He was passionate, articulate and massively creative.
If you don’t know Jason Silva, please take 2 minutes and 55 seconds to watch this video before diving into our longer interview. You’ll know if this uber inspiring philosophical jam is up your alley.
Heads up: this video still brings tears to my eyes when I watch it because it reminds me of how damn much I love love. How much I treasure life in all its forms and how incredibly fleeting it all is.
Since you’re still reading, I’ll take that as a sign that you’re ready for more Jason Silva.
As a person who is always creating and learning, I love meeting people who can make me even more inspired to stretch my own capabilities, reach farther and dig deeper.
That’s what I admire so much in Jason and I hope he inspires the same in you. In today’s interview we’re talking futurism, technology, spirituality, idea sex and more.
Do you ever struggle to clearly communicate your message?
Whether you’re pitching yourself to get press, a new project, a new client, or a new job — being concise and compelling is vital.
But when you’re multipassionate, or just have a lot of valuable things to say, effectively selling yourself in just a few words can feel near impossible.
But here’s the hard truth.
You only have seconds to get a producer, client, customer or boss’s attention — and keep it.
And in order to do that, you’ve got to simplify your message. If you’ve ever tried, you know this is no easy task.
Never fear — MarieTV is here
And today, my guest has spent over 20 years producing television for big names like Oprah Winfrey and Anderson Cooper. Translation? She knows the dos and don’ts of clear communication.
Today’s topic isn’t something we talk about much, but it’s vital if you, or someone you know, is starting or running their own business.
As someone who’s built a business from the ground up — no investors, no MBA, nothing but passion, drive and a lot of hard work — this is a lesson I wish I had when I first started.
With most complex and often fear-inducing topics – like how to get legally set up for success – a bit of initial education goes a long way.
It empowers you with a framework to ask intelligent questions and take smart actions to protect yourself, your clients and your future.
In today’s MarieTV episode, learn 3 common legal mistakes small business owners make, and how to fix them.
Waking up in a pool of your own blood isn’t something most of us aspire to.
But when you constantly push beyond your limits in an effort to “get ahead” that’s exactly where you might wind up.
Combine our change-the-world ambitions with a diligent work ethic and 24/7 technology, and we’ve got a recipe for chronic exhaustion.
That’s why it’s so important to me that you watch today’s episode of MarieTV.
My guest is the legendary Arianna Huffington, author of the new book Thrive, and she’s here to help us redefine success on our own terms.
It all started in the club.
The music was thumping, the strobe lights were popping and this guy and I were pretty much shouting at each other.
While other tipsy clubgoers stumbled past us, I made him a promise. “One day we’re going to do something great together.”
Fast forward four years. We’re building three schools with that guy I met in the club — Adam Braun — and his incredible organization, Pencils of Promise.
Our school in Laos is complete and has 76 kids registered. The other two schools are still being constructed. And in four short years, my dear friend Adam Braun has launched a global revolution.
If you ever feel like you’re meant for more in this life but you doubt that one person can make a difference, you’re going to love today’s episode.
