Ayo tells Chris about graduating from UCLA’s design program and how starting a zine on the internet landed him a job at one of the most prestigious design firms in the world.

Beyond the proverbial origin story, Ayo and Chris talk in depth about the problems with America’s education system and the why, what and how this radical new school—through its unconventional methods is going head to head with ivy leagues.

Hayley Akins runs an online education company called Motion Hatch. They help motion designers with their businesses and creative careers.

If that name sounds familiar, you might recognize it from her podcast, that goes by the same name. It’s great, so check it out if you’re looking for something new.

Hayley and Chris discuss her journey from studying film production, working for Google and the transition from full time to freelance to ultimately, starting her own business. But what’s really cool is that she’s created this unique community to help her fellow creatives and provide a support group of their peers.

There is a lot of overlap with what Hayley does and what we do. So if you’re a fan, then you will enjoy this one. Her and Chris even do a little mentorship role play which is always fun to witness.

Jeff Lerner is the founder and CEO of Entre Institute, a platform that teaches people how to build business’ and make a living in non-traditional ways. Which makes sense, because when he was a kid he dropped out of high school and taught himself jazz piano to pay the bills.

Eventually, he traded the piano keys for a keyboard, started his own affiliate marketing business and dug himself out of insurmountable debt—about $400K to be exact.

Jeff and Chris talk about the concept of digital real estate and the long game behind creating wealth from an online business. They also get pretty raw about the experiences that fuel our guest's death defying drive to be good at things.

Timothy Goodman is a traditionally trained graphic designer turned artist. At least, that’s what his grandmother calls him. But you might recognize his work from murals, graffiti, The Patriot Act show on Netflix, or even his collaboration with international clothing brand, Uniqlo. He's done a lot—he even worked at Apple for a year.

As designers, we’re taught not to insert our opinions into our work, but our guest does the exact opposite. Beyond the wild strokes in his artwork, there is one theme that resonates through it all: he takes a stand on issues. Call it politics, opinions or just speaking from the heart, whatever you name it, it's personal and Timothy puts it all out there for the world to see.

In this episode, he and Chris talk about what it means to live that public life. And all the beautiful and ugly things that come along with it.
