Artie Isaac is a renaissance man, a Vistage Chair with peer groups in Columbus and Dayton, an executive coach, a poet, a writer, even an actor. He has a rich wealth of life experience and it shows in his deep knowledge and connection to the things that actually matter in life. 

His attitude towards living intentionally through relationships is amazing to hear about, especially during a time of year where family serves such an important role to our mental and emotional wellbeing.

From a young age, he questioned everything, thanks to an upbringing of constantly being asked “why?” This quality turned him into a lateral thinker who’s been able to embrace all the aspects of his one-of-a-kind personality, as you’ll hear in his sense of humor, his penchant for dramatic departures, and his flair for blending creativity with business. 

What Brett asks:

  • [00:40] Let’s start at the beginning. 
  • [14:00] What kind of person were you when you were younger?
  • [20:00] How much of our personality is chosen or inherent? 
  • [25:20] Tell us about life as Artie in your college years.
  • [29:30] Could you get further by planning?
  • [33:40] What stands out to you between your first job and your current one?
  • [48:00] What made you realize you needed to make a change in life?
  • [51:40] What important work would you like to tell us about?
  • [57:00] What’s it like being so content with your life?
