117: Jeffrey Madoff: Creative Careers: Making a Living With Your Ideas
Jeff teaches a class in making a living through a creative life. I’ve sat in on his class for years for his interviews and the guests. I don’t need more formal education. Look at some of the people he’s interviewed
Ralph Lauren, Halston, Brooke Astor, Liza Minnelli, Donna Karen, Martha Graham, Tom Brokaw, Tony Bennett, Renee Fleming, Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Miranda Kerr, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio, Justin Bieber, Usher, Black Eyed Peas, Maroon 5, Katy Perry, Akon, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Ray Kurzweil, Sanford Weill, Tim Ferris, and Peter Diamandis
The celebrities are not the main reason I like his class. You know how no matter how productive you feel, when you take a vacation, things resolve themselves and you realize your priorities?
I get that from his class in an hour or two nearly every time. Jeff brings out creative thoughts, reflection, and solutions. I wanted to bring that culture to the podcast.
This episode is about leadership, especially starting without connections or resources. If you’ve heard 80% of success is showing up, Jeff shows how. You’ll hear some iconic names within the first few minutes.
If you want to lead, you’ll hear how he gets his results, starting from almost nothing, reaching world-renowned icons, living by his values.
