35: Travis Brewer – How To Become A Ninja
“I can’t let the fear of hurting myself stop me from being who I want to be.”
“Can my passion be monetized?”
I get asked this question all the time.
There are passions that are easy to monetize. If you’re passionate about finance, accounting or investing, you can easily find a paying position in these fields…
But what if you’re passionate about painting? What about history? What about shoes? These arts are traditionally considered hard, if not impossible, to monetize.
I believe today, with enough passion, inspiration and perseverance you can make a career from nearly anything.
My next guest on the show has built a career from playing on pull-up bars. He is an incredible athlete and an astonishing acrobat. Not only does he have deep insight into the lifestyle of a creative entrepreneur, but he also is a student of self-actualization. We explore all these things and more in our interview.
