2020 has given many people time to think and reassess their personal and professional lives. Some are considering or have been forced to make career changes.
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest gives readers a candid behind-the-scenes look at what it’s really like to build a creative career.
Jeff Madoff says making a living with your ideas is a marathon not a sprint. In his brand new book, “Creative Careers: Making a Living with Your Ideas,” he draws on his own decades of experience and also the experience of more than 40 leading entrepreneurs, artists, and business leaders to give you an accessible path that will lead to success in whatever new career field you choose.
“Every entrepreneur that starts a business is creating something out of nothing, that's creativity,” Jeff says. “I define creativity as the compelling need to bring about change.”
Jeff Madoff began his career as a fashion designer and was chosen one of the top 10 designers in the U.S. He then switched careers to be a director, photographer and writer.
He founded Madoff Productions, a film production company that creates award-winning branded content including commercials, web content, music videos, and documentaries. His articles have appeared online in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Newsweek, Huffington Post and other major publications. He’s since expanded his career to include teaching, book and playwriting, and theatrical producing.
“Don't say no to yourself,” Jeff says. “Don't disqualify yourself by thinking you're not good enough, your idea doesn't have enough value, all those kinds of things. And then you don't do anything. Because a sure way to make sure nothing happens is to do nothing. So, there's a risk involved in even starting. And a lot of people are afraid to make that leap because of doubt. And they're afraid of taking that risk and not succeeding.”
