Destroying the Myth of the “Starving Artist”, With Catherine Orer

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on May 23, 2019 0 Comments

The “starving artist” myth is a limiting belief that’s been passed on from generation to generation and it’s about time we put an end to it. Not only is it disempowering to artists trying to promote themselves and their work, it’s also a barrier for many talented teenagers and young adults who will not pursue a career in the arts from fear of not being able to support themselves and later on in life, their families. Many will major in a more “socially accepted” program and pursue a career they don’t enjoy. Our society just doesn’t value doing what ignites your passion when it comes to earning a living. Instead, we are conditioned to do “the right thing”, even if it makes us incredibly unhappy.

So what should you do when the thing you are really good at, the thing that really drives you and excites you come Monday morning isn’t putting food on the table?

Joining Adam to dispel the myth around the arts is award-winning Business & PR Strategist and founder of The Artist Entrepreneur, Catherine Orer.


  • How to sell your art without feeling like a sell-out;
  • Top mistakes artists are making that are costing them sales;
  • Why it’s so important to get clear on your vision and how to communicate it effectively with potential partners and clients;
  • How to set and achieve your goals as a professional artist;
  • The essentials to consider when you want to go from amateur to professional artist;
  • And so much more!

You can starve if you want or you can provide useful work that others will pay for. If you want to learn how to sell more you are in for a treat!

You’re amazing at what you do. You provide coaching to people and companies to help them increase

utilize your time and team to improve productivity and get you back in the coaches chair.


  • What The Coaching Effect is all about;

Stop Wasting Money On Ineffective Training Programs, With Juliana Stancampiano

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on May 16, 2019 0 Comments

Every year, businesses spend billions of dollars on initiatives, tools, and technology that leaders believe will help their customer-facing teams drive more revenue or customer engagement and loyalty. Yet they lack the internal models necessary to navigate organizational complexity, and the ways of working needed to gather cross-functional knowledge across silos. The result is that too much irrelevant content is created, information is overwhelming and hard to find, and the investments are wasted because their end deliverables simply aren’t helpful for their intended audience.

CEO of Oxygen, Juliana Stancampiano, joins Adam to discuss why businesses are essentially throwing money out the window when it comes to training programs.


  • Why, even though learning and development is a $140 billion industry, much of that money is wasted;
  • If there is a greater need for training in today’s workplace than in prior times and why;
  • How focusing on outcomes is the key to developing learning programs that yield measurable results;
  • Why teamwork is critical when it comes to learning and development;
  • And much more!

Controlling Healthcare Spending, With Allison DePaoli

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on May 14, 2019 0 Comments

The best employers inherently know that taking care of their employees means their employees will take care of their customers. Offering a benefits plan that takes care of the employee and doesn’t break the bank, that’s the dream. It can drive higher job satisfaction, improve morale and help with the ever-present issue of employee engagement.

Most employers don’t know how to accomplish this – or even that it is possible! Every employer should be in complete control of their healthcare spend – driving the maximum value from every dollar and allowing those saved dollars to grow the business and the bottom line.

Understanding how to drive those savings while finding a world class benefits package can be intimidating. Few insurance professionals understand how to get under the hood and tinker to make the plan work better.

Allison DePaoli does. And she joins Adam in this episode to show us how.


  • How supply chain management translates into healthcare and employee benefits;
  • What employers should focus on with healthcare;
  • How to shift your current plan to focus on outcomes;
  • How to find all the hidden cost drivers in health care;
  • How to use the plan to drive employee engagement;
  • And much more!

If you’re looking for a way to deliver star-studded benefits to your team, without hurting your bottom line,
