Tweetable Quotes

“How did I find your show? I was looking for shows about podcasting, and I had ran into Daniel J. Lewis, Dave Jackson, and yours popped up. And I saw your logo there, and I was just like, that's striking. And sure enough, there you were. And I was like, oh, wow. So I caught you in that 2017, 2018 time period there and have been a fan ever since.”

“One of my taglines is taming that inner critic. But when it takes over, when it stops you cold, when it won't let you even start a project, that's when there's a problem. I have an inner critic. My inner critic is loud. He is very loud. And on occasion, I have to take him out back in the woodshed and we have a conversation.”

“I think we've been indoctrinated trained through school, through media. That everything. This is beauty, and this is not beauty. And some of the things that aren't beautiful aren't conventionally beautiful. I absolutely love Mark Rothko paintings. Washes of color. We have one down in Richmond, VA. The first time I saw my first Rothco, I go up there and I got it. I understood what was going on. My wife looked at it and she was like, okay, well, nice paint.”

“You never know what you share from your personal journey that's going to resonate with folks.”
