A Different Look at Success Metrics - Inspired by YouTubers Max Fosh and Colin & Samir
May 16, 2024 Season 1 Episode 83
Jessica Brist

Creative entrepreneurs are a special kind of entrepreneur, and as a creative entrepreneur, I say that in the most positive and loving way. Our mission, our fuel, and our inspiration are different than others. We have a passion for creating, and sometimes that can make entrepreneurship difficult. Sometimes we feel like it's a constant pulling between creativity and entrepreneurship. Where's the balance? Is it possible to be "successful" financially and to be fulfilled creatively? Is it better to be focused on the passion and creativity or to be focused on the business?

This podcast episode is inspired by an interview I watched on the Colin & Samir show with Max Fosh, a well-known YouTube creative entrepreneur known for the extensive lengths he will go to for the sake of humor. One of my favorite gems from the interview was discussing two different metrics of success that we as creative entrepreneurs have - one metric relating to our passion and creativity, and the other relating to financial success. So, of course, we dive all into a conversation on that, plus other gems from the interview, including a quick path to a short career, constraints as creatives, and failing as a creative.

I hope that these perspective shifts are as inspiring, motivational, and impactful for you as they were for me!
