    #81: Jay-Talking about Speaking with Jay Acunzo

    1:10:02

    Jay Acunzo is an author, a speaker, and a showrunner. He started his career in marketing working with ESPN, Google and HubSpot. He currently hosts two podcasts. One is called 3 Clips, which was recently acquired by a podcasting platform called Castos, and the other is called Unthinkable, a storytelling podcast about creative people who break from conventional thinking to make what matters most. I recently reached out to Jay to ask him questions about speaking, and we decided to turn that conversation into a podcast episode to help others too. I’m calling this “Jay Talking,” a series of conversations with my friend Jay Acunzo that are less so an interview, and more so a conversation between two creators in the trenches of building their businesses. In this episode of Jay Talking, we talk about speaking, the differences between a keynote and a breakout, how to land gigs, how to prepare for gigs, and some actual next steps I could take if I wanted to become a keynote like my friend Jay.

    59:11

    Lauren Hom is a designer and hand lettering artist based in Detroit (formerly New York & Los Angeles). Lauren is known for her bright color palettes and playful letterforms.

Her work has been recognized by Communication Arts, the Type Directors Club, and the Webby Awards.  Lauren is also the author of the popular blog and book Daily Dishonesty.

    56:35

    Dru Riley is the creator of Trends.vc, which has more than 45,000 subscribers and 1,000 Pro members. With each Trends report, Dru focuses on one core idea or movement.

Trends also has a Pro subscription that goes deeper into each of those areas and includes other forms of media, a community, and more. In this episode, we talk about Dru’s mini-retirement, why he decided to build Trends, how he thinks about pricing and monetization, what makes a good online community, and why Being Concise has helped along the way.

    #77: Andy J. Pizza [Storytelling] – Writing with pictures and developing your taste

    1:02:34

    Andy J. Pizza is an illustrator.  Sometimes he uses pictures. Like in his kid’s books, comics, and client work for the likes of The New York Times, Apple, or Nickelodeon.  Sometimes he uses words. Like when he’s making his podcast Creative Pep Talk. CPT consists of monologues on building a thriving creative practice and conversations with creative powerhouses like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Abbi Jacobson, and Morgan Harper Nichols. His favorite way to illustrate ideas is with analogies and stories on stage. Andy’s style of public speaking is one part TED Talk, one part one-man show — with a sprinkle of stand-up comedy. In this episode, we talk about creative taste and intuition, watching the tape, playing your hits, creative habits, and why he’s more focused on storytelling than ever before. Andy J.
