Ryan is a master marketer and what you’ll find at the core of his marketing principles are his personal principles. He applies a Stoic philosophy to everything he does and this episode is overflowing with philosophies, self directed questions, and stories that has helped him make work that stands the test of time, and will help you do the same.

In today's episode we discuss:

Good marketing isn’t taking pictures or writing copy that sell shoes anymore. It’s just as much about making work that starts a discussion. You’re going to get a little crash course on Stoic philosophy and how to use your own mindset to propel your creative endeavors in three simple but challenging steps. Control your perception, take action, and look forward to the transformation that hardship brings. The two questions you should be asking yourself before starting any creative project are “who is this for?” and “what does this do for them?” If you think long term about the impact that you want to make, it will help you persevere when the going gets tough.

Enjoy!
