Welcome to a special mini-sode of the podcast. We made todays episode to say THANK YOU for subscribing and listening to the show! I spoke a little further into my life circumstances that brought me to the bare-bones approach to everything I do.
What is this “bare-bones” approach I’m talking about? Trust me. It’s not some magic one-size-fits-all life strategy. In fact, it’s a strategy as old as time that I’m applying to my family, to my work, and to my art. Bare-bones: Doing what you can with what you have. This was something I had a hard time wrapping my mind around. I used to think I wasn’t a comedian until the powers-that-be say I’m a comedian. That I’m not able to create podcasts and video until I had the right equipment and proper training. There was always this sense of waiting for things to come to me or be given to me which just isn’t practical. At all. Instead, I took a breath, and took inventory of what I have. I have an old microphone, a bent-up computer, a dinky apartment, a voice and a drive. That’s enough to get me where I’m going as long as I’m honest and I don’t give up. That’s what being bare-bones is all about. It’s about just doing it. Not waiting for the timing to feel right or for my life to be in order. I didn’t want to be that guy sitting around waiting for life to happen. That’s how this podcast came to be. Enjoy the special mini-sode!

Questions to Ask Yourself
Are you sitting around waiting for life to come to you or are you proactively going out and creating the things you want create?
How do you know when you’ve found your “voice” or have “arrived”? Is this even possible?
