Quotes


“When the sun goes down your usually tired, when the sun goes up you’re usually awake and that’s what guides life. It was a really interesting way to see what matters. I need to figure out where I’m getting water, where I’m resupplying food, where I’m camping. Beyond that the world is so flexible.” - Jeff Garmire

 

“When  you go to nature you are removing your self. There’s no other stupid shit happening there in nature. Everything either has a function, or the animals have a thing they are trying to get done or survive. Humans are so smart we do things that get in our own way of basic survival because of what we come up with. All of the the things we’ve done to create society have changed that. - Host Dave Swillum

Why I 100% NEVER Pass A Lemonade Stand W/ Host Dave Swillum

Why I 100% NEVER Pass A Lemonade Stand W/ Host Dave Swillum

September 14, 2021

E126:

Take a step back from the longer interview content to have a glass of lemonade. Did you ever have a lemonade stand as a child? What did that mean to you then and what does that part of your story mean now? In this brief episode I speak on the value I see in that as an early experiment of teaching children entrepreneurial traits and business principles young and go into some in depth of how I made additional income streams when I was younger to get to the goals I had then. Have you ever had some things you did as a kid that seem more a part of you now that you look back at the trait before you got to where you are? We often reveal little bread crumbs about who we are going to become through choices and ways to figure things when we are younger but it’s not always obvious when we are making them at that point. What was your lemonade stand then and what is it now? I always stop at every lemonade stand, I want people to understand as early as possible they can create ways to make income and do what is enjoyable for them with hard work.

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • Common traits of young entrepreneurs / creatives
  • Why lemonade stands mean something more
  • Raising children with entrepreneurial challenges
  • Scarcity forms creation
  • Investing what you have to make more
  • Seeing young traits in ourselves when we are older
  • Learning to create your own income
  • Finding ways to make something you want happen

 

Quotes


“You 100% at all times, no matter what you’re doing have to stop for a lemonade stand, 100%.” - Host Dave Swillum

Finding Your Own Voice & Creating Your Own Niche W/ Tarot Coach Skye Marinda

September 7, 2021

E125:

 

Using your creative background to create a business that supports people is a great thing! Today we speak to Skye Marinda who is a Tarot Coach from D.C. Not sure what that is? I wasn’t either because she made it with the tools and super powers she has. Coming from a background in art school and a love for Tarot reading she works with people in Tarot as a medium to gain confidence in themselves and work through their thoughts internally. She has given over 400 readings and 100 workshops worldwide. You don’t have to know anything about Tarot readings to love this episode because I didn’t know anything while interviewing! Great insight on creating a creative business drawing from social DM’s, using your artistic background in new ways, running events in new spaces, and external judgement on your creative business. Let us know what you think of the conversation!

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • Using tools for self reflection
  • Making a niche
  • Using your art background in new ways
  • Going through different phases
  • How much society values art
  • Keeping arts strong
  • Using spaces to run events for free
  • Interacting with customers coming from social feeds
  • Getting used to working with strangers as clients
  • Seeing others do well
  • Find your own voice
  • The coaching model
  • Parental pressure to have you get a “normal job”

 

Quotes


“I truly believe that creative is just a different thing we make it out to be. That subjectiveness, that way of interpretation, a way to see a story and go through something is creativity to me.” - Host Dave Swillum


“I feel like a lot of times people feel like you should be charging high prices for what you do, not that you shouldn’t charge money but I definitely used that first year to see what’s it like to do business with people on instagram and Tik Tok, and all over the place to get a feel for it.” - Skye Marinda

 

“Getting started is the hardest hurdle to get past.” - Skye Marinda

Managing Your Relationship With $ Money $: What is it really? W/ Dave Swillum

Managing Your Relationship With $ Money $: What is it really? W/ Dave Swillum

August 24, 2021

E123:

 

Your relationship with money dictates your decision making process and your mood so it’s important for any creative or business owner to manage. I’ve been unhealthy and healthy with my perspective on money in many different ways over my life transitions. When you don’t have a lot sometimes it comes out of anger because you can’t get what you need at the time, when you have more sometimes it comes from still not wanting to spend it and more importantly not spending it on the right things or things that fill your cup. On this episode we talk about some things to look out for that may be unhealthy ways of looking at what money is and it’s purpose and talk through some ways to manage a better relationship with it. Money is an energy and a vehicle but nothing more. Everything else we develop in our world around it on our journey is something different. Let’s start cultivating a great relationship on what money really boils down to so we can make the best decisions on our mission and get the biggest impact from life.

 

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • Your relationship with money dictates your decision making process
  • Money is energy
  • Difference between broke and poor
  • F U Money
  • Decisions not based out of fear
  • Stopping reactionary decision making
  • Controlling natural human - animal instincts
  • I tell me what I’m doing
  • Frugality: Fighting how cheap I can be
  • Buying things that don’t matter sometimes
  • Your “rich life”

 

Quotes

 

“Money is energy, money is a vehicle…….that’s all.” - Host Dave Swillum


“I’m giving energy up, so what am I getting that gives energy back to me? If it doesn’t I’m probably not going to buy it.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“You give up a lot to go after your passion in a real way” - Host Dave Swillum

I’ve never seen a time in my life where living affordability has been crazier! On this episode we speak to co-founder of Boxabl a company that creates pre-fabricated housing in a very new way. With the ability for their unit to be shipped in a typical driving standard without oversize and get the results approved by building code ahead of time they are able to bring a new solution to the market to help with this bottle necking. If you want to see one of the first three units out so far look no further than Tesla and Space X CEO Elon Musk’s Boxabl Casita in Starbase Boca Chica, TX !

 

We speak through their first model “Casita” an ADU accessory dwelling unit, the housing market and modern living method for Americans and many around the world for the future and much more. Overhead cost of living, living alternatives, assessing risk in an optimistic way, and solving problems so people can live better lives and pursue their passions too.

  • Housing affordability
  • Overhead cost of living
  • Alternative living set up’s
  • ADU: Accessory Dwelling Unit
  • Mass production
  • Where housing is going in the US
  • Different ways to approach your dream living space
  • Creating a scalable housing solution
  • Zoning trends to ease housing issues
  • Removing headaches
  • Government influence on our day to day
  • We can take on larger risks that we think sometimes
  • The downside isn’t that bad anymore
  • Learning through Youtube V college
  • The information is available
  • You only have to be right once
  • Going big!

 

Quotes

 

“Making it simple wasn’t simple but not that it’s simple to use its simple.” - Galiano Tiramani

 

“We live in a nanny state and it’s unfortunate that the government doesn’t just leave people alone because I think the world would be better off it they did, in a big way.” - Galiano Tiramani

 

“You can lose basically lose everything you have because you’re not gonna starve to death, you’re not gonna freeze. You can really just go all in and take huge risks because the downside really isn’t that bad.” - Galiano Tiramani

Who Need’s To Leave Your Life NOW & Who You Need To Bring In To It W/ Dave Swillum

Who Need’s To Leave Your Life NOW & Who You Need To Bring In To It W/ Dave Swillum

July 27, 2021

E119:

 

Every person in your life has an impact on how you feel, think, and operate. When we are going after our dreams and thinking outside the box as creatives and entrepreneurs people will create friction with you. People will question you, or believe in you but just live things that are negative to your missions which makes it harder for you to keep away from the habits you don’t want to portray. People are typically in good intention but we are the sum of the 5 people we spend the most time with. That’s why it’s important even if we aren’t looking to take people completely out of our life because we love them, we at least be very aware of what affect they have and make alterations to change that affect if it’s negative. It’s time to get the people harming you out of your life and bring in people that challenge you and make you stronger. We don’t have to get rid of loved ones we care for but it may be time to alter how they show up and appear in your life in order to form the life you want instead of what others want of you.

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • Who needs to leave your life?
  • Who needs to come in to your life?
  • You are the sum of the 5 people you hang with the most
  • We are altered but all who are around us
  • Difference between belief in you and challenging you
  • Do they hear you out? Or not
  • Time wasters - No respect for your time
  • Bad influences are sneaky
  • Breaking down mentors
  • People that ask how, not black or white
  • Sniffing out if people are fake supporting you on the internet
  • Do the actions line up with the words?

 

Quotes

 

“ If someone’s f($*% up your steps, then it’s really hard to get to where you want to go to.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“You can’t really feel good and meet good people and get them in there if you are bogged down by negative things and people that are messing with your dream.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“They radiate something that makes you want to glow more.” - Host Dave Swillum

Quotes

 

“It’s important to reframe the situation. Instead of thinking about what’s wrong thinking about what’s right.” - Peter Maslanka

 

“It’s ok to exit, even if it’s not on your own terms. There’s no shame in exiting, no shame in getting fired there’s always something out there for you.” - Peter Maslanka

 

“Everyday is gonna be it’s own thing, you don’t know what’s gonna happen even when you feel like you’re comfortable and you know exactly what’s gonna happen. Someone else can make choices to change up your day. Whether it’s work or it’s other things. We don’t have control like we think we do.” - Host Dave Swillum
