Love Your Work: A Creative Entrepreneur & Productivity Podcast
How do you find your calling? How do you focus to follow it? On the Love Your Work podcast, now with over half a million downloads, I interview creative entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, authors, and startup founders who have carved out success by their own definition.
How did they turn setbacks into opportunities? How did they discover their passion? How did they overcome doubt and emotional obstacles? I dig into all of this and more, trying to crack the code for fulfilling work. Whether you’re looking for a creative entrepreneur podcast, a solopreneur podcast, or a productivity podcast, Love Your Work is for you.

When your life gets too comfortable, you stop taking risks. Loss aversion takes hold and you become complacent. You stop innovating. You stop being dynamic. By the time you realize you’ve become irrelevant, it’s already too late to change.
We’re wired to seek pleasure, and avoid pain. But to make it as a creator, you need to push yourself outside of your comfort zone. Many things that feel good about creating can hold you back, while many things that feel bad are powerful fuel.
