Waking Up From Work
Having Your First Baby While Starting Your First Business W/ Coach Jake Lospennato

Having Your First Baby While Starting Your First Business W/ Coach Jake Lospennato

September 22, 2020

E76:

Another repeat guest now that we are getting two years out from launch a lot has changed. Today is about sharing something I’ve never been able to speak to with certainty but hear a lot of listeners and friends speak on. How do you start a business when you have a kid? We’ve had some amazing guests that do both but I wanted to share a fresh perspective on both the business and being a parent.

Please join me with Coach Jake Lospennato again to speak on being a new father and new business owner full time. It isn’t easy but it can happen and in this episode you’ll hear how if you thought about it before past or pre tense. Talk about societal pressures, having the right partner, being the best you can for your child BY pursuing your dreams, balance, and a lot more.

In This Episode We Cover

  • Having your first child while going after you dream

  • Leaving something you tried hard for

  • Recreating the vision

  • When Income disappears

  • Focusing on being a dad to focus on the dream

  • List out everything that you’ve done

  • Having the right partner

  • Perspective shift

  • Societal norms that get in the way

  • The fear of having kids and being stopped

  • There is no 100%

  • Boundaries

  • Balance

Quotes

“We didn’t plan to have a child, it was a surprise. Ashley is a rockstar mother and it helps so much because she supports me to be able to do what I do. Having a partner like that, I’m not sure everyone has a partner that’s that supportive. If your partner isn’t that supportive. Really put some thought into if you want a partner like that if you are trying to transition into a business.” - Jake Lospennato

 

“ It’s always a work in progress, you’ll never be 100%.” - Jake Lospennato

Drums, Real Estate, & Business Oh My! W/ Jamie Ryan

Drums, Real Estate, & Business Oh My! W/ Jamie Ryan

September 15, 2020

E75:

Sorry the title is super lame but I am too so that’s kind of part of it. Another IG connection. Jamie has tuned in on and off for some time now and we connected more through IG and found we have VERY similar interests and live really close which is weird because I am a pretty mixed dude. Fun episode, stays light hearted but hits on a lot of points between all the interests.

We talk on why the blend makes sense and how it helps and hurts us. Lifestyle choice and design, and dig into each piece. If you like all or none there’s something here but still really at large why we both ended up doing all these things. What blend makes you up?

In This Episode We Cover

  • Taking opportunities as they come

  • It’s easy to stay in a job you don’t like

  • Blending what you like

  • Glass ceiling

  • Lifestyle choice

  • Seeing opportunity

  • Renovations

  • Paying or doing?

  • No overhead means freedom

  • Sacrifice now

  • When are you setting up for? Long term?

  • No input/output for time anymore

  • Success leaves clues

  • Harness your 20’s

  • Start early

Quotes

“ I”m taking opportunities as they come and I’m letting the universe guide it. Whenever opportunities come, take advantage of them, and play your best hand with the cards that you got.” - Jamie Ryan

“Dealing with bosses and having that glass ceiling above over your head. Like your working your ass off and they’re only giving you like $20 dollars an hour with a little bit of commission. I can’t deal with that.” - Jamie Ryan

 

“None of it is cool, none of it is a fun thing but If I could do this for a little bit then I could wake up and do whatever I want then it’s worth it.” - Host Dave Swillum

Make It A Problem First W/ Dave Swillum

September 8, 2020

E74:

If you have problem taking action this one’s for you. Solo episode w/ Dave in shorter length. I’ve seen countless creatives and business owners prevent themselves from taking the next steps because they come up with problems that don’t exist yet. They come up with how something will be a problem before knowing.

This episode is about walking through why it makes sense in some situations to actually cause a problem you need to solve to get your business or creative life moving forward. We can all say we don’t have time, its too much money, I can’t from this area, I don’t know the right people…….we can’t have these problems until it happens. Let’s talk it out on E74.

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • Taking an action
  • You can always solve a problem
  • We solve problems all day
  • You are choosing your problems
  • Creating Action
  • Limiting Belief
  • No one has time
  • A real problem
  • The mind is trained to protect
  • We need risk
  • Mitigate it
  • We fix our biggest problems first
  • Problems are still problems, but what do you want?

 

Quotes

 

“ No one has time, if you have time you fill it up with shit to do. No one has time…..it’s the biggest limiting self belief.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“Make a problem a real problem.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“You will by habit focus on your biggest problems first.” - Host Dave Swillum

Less Is More: “Alternative” Living W/ The Hunters Van Life

Less Is More: “Alternative” Living W/ The Hunters Van Life

September 1, 2020

E73:

In today’s episode Dave speaks with long time friends Ethan and Katelynn Hunter of Hunters Van Life. For awhile now I’ve wanted to interview some van life or other “alternative life” people out there to get perspective on the why behind it. I believe the why is the same why many of us have just in a different approach at achieving a life we want to live all the time being creative and having time to create.

 

We speak about the process, working for what you want to have happen. Control on life and perspective of time. Perception of the life and time we want verses what we actually have to do and what is not real. Lots of deep conversation sprinkled with some pre-game wine and jokes between friends. Lots to think about here but not too deep to go for a run and hang with us.

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • Seeing where your money is going
  • Wanting less
  • Having less
  • What do you need, what do you care about?
  • What is for you? What other ways can you live?
  • Minimum expenses
  • Creating a schedule
  • When you want you can make it happen
  • Things have to suck sometimes
  • Time when your in it vs when you look back
  • Controlling time
  • There are other ways to live

 

Quotes

 

“We just worked two weeks, now we are all set for the next 3 months.” - Ethan Hunter

 

“ You don’t have to do the 9 to 5, you don’t have to buy the house with the picket fence and fill it up with things. There are other ways to live. People think this is what we are supposed to be doing and if you aren’t feeling like thats meant for you or that brings you true joy then there are other ways.” - Katelynn Hunter

 

“When there’s something that you really want you just do it, you make it work. If there’s something you really want I truly believe you just make it happen.” - Katelynn Hunter

 

“I need that game to play, I need the other game to play, and I know that.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“When your in your 30’s or 40’s looking back 6 months feels like nothing. When your in 6 months, 6 months feels like 10 years and your like this is awful, how am I still doing this?!?!” - Host Dave Swillum

Tracking Lamb Of God, Lighting In A Bottle Moments, & Chipotle Ordering Tricks W/ Audio Engineer Kevin Billingslea

August 25, 2020

E72:

As an audio engineer I always have to steal time with other engineers to talk on music and production. Today is someone I’ve loved the work of for awhile so it was awesome to chat. Kevin Billingslea records mostly out of the greater Portland, ME area and has backed artists like Lamb Of God, Vanna, Cruel Hand, Valley Heart, and so many others.

We talk on getting what you put into your art, choosing the right things you need not for flash or charm but for purpose and function. Not needing the best place or gear to get going and what leveling up looks like so you aren’t chasing clients to the bottom. Imposter syndrome, amazing hidden Chipotle recipes, and band dad stories. You will find something for all creative entrepreneurs in here to stir your thoughts and strategy in what you love.

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • Watching others work
  • Band dads are the best
  • Outgrowing your space
  • It’s not the tools it’s the fool
  • Investing in the important things first
  • Not the gear
  • Big career benchmarks
  • Professional relationships
  • Lighting in a bottle moments
  • How to keep energy in art after a long career
  • Managing consistency
  • If you won’t invest what you are doing, no one else will
  • Never race to the bottom
  • Only being you in your work, say no when you should
  • Chipotle

 

Quotes

 

“ Geniuses, when your around them all you can really do is hope to zap every bit of wisdom you can from them.” - Kevin Billingslea

 

“I’ve seen a lot of bands go into incredible studios and come out with garbage and I’ve seen a lot of bands go into squalor studios and come out with something that’s rippin’.” - Kevin Billingslea

 

“What do I really need to make this happen? And sometimes it’s just an audio interface and a Mic in a room with ok acoustics.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“There’s no plug in that injects feel into a vocal take, it just doesn’t exist.” - Kevin Billingslea

Kevin’s Secret Chipotle Recipe

 

Burrito

  • Get double wrapped because it doesn’t cost anything extra and why not?
  • Get the white rice, the least healthy shit ever, but, that ship is well on it’s way
  • Pinto Beans
  • Steak: To get double meat, wait to tell them about your double meat order until after they’ve done the first scoop. If you tell them beforehand they will compensate their scoops.
  • Corn salsa is acceptable
  • Tomato salsa soaks everything else
  • Sour cream
  • If you like heat the red stuff is fine
  • No lettuce because it’s just taking up space
  • You can do guac if you want but Kevin is allergic to it

No Means Why & How Do I?

No Means Why & How Do I?

August 11, 2020

E70: No Means Why & How

We all hear no everyday but it’s how we perceive that answer and response with actions that defines who achieves and who doesn’t. You can’t make a living doing that, you can’t get a loan for that, you can’t afford it, you can’t ever live that way……. When I hear no I am thinking about WHY they are saying it and HOW I will get around it to continue on my mission.

 

Let’s talk about the different and sometimes secret ways people say no to us in our creative living journeys. No and yes never mean what we think when we analyze why they are being said and how we can move forward.

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • No doesn’t mean no, ask why, figure out how
  • Friends and family judgement taken in
  • Network
  • Speaking with others that do what you do often
  • No and Yes are circumstantial, these are arbitrary
  • How can you do it? Why did someone or something say No?
  • The why is important
  • You will always hear no
  • Mentors aren’t always right
  • Good mentors challenge you but don’t stop you

Quotes

“ When someone says no it’s almost like an immediately how am I going to do this, like they didn't’ say anything. When someone builds a little damn in the river its going to pull off in different streams until it goes where it’s going to go, it’s going to go there.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“ In real life we know that there are thousands and thousands of people doing it in real life, but if we don’t go out and meet any of them it feels like its a TV show and isn’t possible. We need to network.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“You don’t need anything to start anything.” - Host Dave Swillum

Crafting A Business & Choosing Your Story W/ Hilary Lane of Craft Business Builders

Crafting A Business & Choosing Your Story W/ Hilary Lane of Craft Business Builders

August 4, 2020

E69:

 

This week is a blend of how to brand a business aesthetically in person and digitally and how to create an experience. We hang with Hilary Lane of Craft Business Builders who talks on her story of starting her first business when she was 26 and going through realizations of what she did and didn’t want out of a business. Finding the parts we love and going all in.

 

We speak through rejection and ways of making things work to get going along the way. After speaking through Hilary’s story we dive into speaking on knowing what type of business owner you are in your creative business and what it is trying to portray. Great blend of creative business, real estate, branding, and a story that will make you feel like you aren’t alone when things get tough along the way.

  • Bigger picture
  • Don’t take no
  • Ratings
  • What part of the business do you love?
  • Getting out when its wrong
  • Break
  • Friends moving, finding location
  • Separating different brands
  • What’s your message?
  • How can you not afford it?

 

Quotes

 

“ Really, I feel like I can do a lot, but I’m not being given the opportunity to do everything I wanna do here and I’m not being challenged anymore. If I go to another job I feel like I’m just a dime a dozen.” - Hilary Lane

 

“ Do whatever you have to do, guerrilla warfare to make it so you can do what you want to do.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“ I hate knowing how hard it is to run a business and how many of them are going to fail.” - Hilary Lane

“ The creatives are here, they live in different pockets and spots they just need more places to meet and create at, they are here.” - Host Dave Swillum
