Monica Seles is a famous tennis player, and she revolutionized the world of tennis by grunting. When she won an amazing upset in the 1990 French Open, the 16-year-old created a new trend that was quickly adopted by other players.

What can we learn from this?

While Monica's guttural addition to tennis was unintentional, your own actions can set a standard and revolutionize energy, happiness, and productivity. When you make the 'game' your own by personalizing it, you win.

Today's guest, Ron Friedman, is an award-winning psychologist and contributor to Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, and CNN. He has some amazing insights on how to increase your energy and productivity by building a better workplace in the office or at home. And if you're a leader, you can cause that change to ripple out into the culture of your company.

You’ve heard it before: to be an artist is to suffer. Whether you’re acting, writing, painting, or any other creative endeavor, it’s easy to want to pretend the business side of things doesn’t exist. Money is dirty, and technology is too hard, right?

You don’t have to be a starving artist. You don’t have to feel bad about leveraging technology and charging money for your hard work.

Today’s guest, David H. Lawrence XVII, is an actor from the hit show Heroes, a prolific voice actor and coach, and a technology junkie. When he’s not being artistically awesome, he’s busy spreading his message to all creatives. To be an artist isn’t enough these days.

You need the Art, the Commerce, and the Science.

Learn all about what David’s 3-pronged approach to acting and creative work, which relies strongly on sound entrepreneurial practices, on today’s episode of Business Reimagined with Danny Iny.


At 2:00 – David explains his theory of observable realities and the definition of success that he gives to every client. He then explains exactly what he means by Art, Commerce, and Science.

At 9:00 – David explains how the approach of Art, Commerce, and Science applies to fields beyond actors and creative – especially entrepreneurs and solopreneurs. He talks about what you have to do to succeed. 

At 12:00 – There’s a lot of controversy around ‘selling out’ when it comes to creatives making money with their art, especially around bestselling author James Patterson and his method for pushing out a ton of books every year.

At 16:00 – The 80/20 rule is used by a lot of people to forgo learning Commerce and Science, so David gives his take on how to 80/20 correctly when those aren’t your strengths.

At 20:00 – David dispels the myth that if you have really great art (or an amazing product), you’ll be discovered. He shares what you REALLY need to do to succeed.

You know that feeling of dissatisfaction that haunts you, no matter how often you tell yourself you should be happy? When you look at your career trajectory or business, you just know you weren’t ‘born for this.’ It’s not what you were meant to do in life.

According to today’s guest, Chris Guillebeau, not at all. In fact, feeling dissatisfaction is a GOOD thing. It will help you make changes in your life, the kind of changes bring you closer to what you were BORN to do.
