Our conversation took place in a barrel sauna like this. “It’s [about] getting closer to the source and not being distracted by any nonsense…” – Rick Rubin Rick Rubin has been called “the most important [music] producer of the last 20 years” by MTV.

Here are a few of the things that moved me from this podcast episode:

  • Helping artist to discover themselves so they can create their best work.  Rick Rubin helps to identify what gets in the way [25:30]
  • The idea of only competing with yourself [27:00]
  • Trying not to think too much when creating.  The head comes after to look at what the hear has presented and organize it [28:00]
  • Submerging yourself in great art as a of getting inspiration [29:00]
  • The best art divides the audience.  Don’t water down your work. [39:00]

I hope you enjoy the podcast.

As always my goal is to help you run the point (take action) from where you are, with what you have.

I have a deep desire to help spread entrepreneurial thinking as the solutions to many of our problems today. I am a project kind of guy who loves to get things started. When I'm not in search of contract work (projects) that I can do during the nights and weekends I can be found working as a mild mannered Digital Content Manager for Babson Executive Education.
