Episode 199: Priscilla Pfeiffer - Tried By Fire
This week I talk to Priscilla Pfeiffer, a former Las Vegas dancer (think Cirque du Soleil, fire dancing, and snake charming--that kind of dancing!). Unfortunately, she had a forced career change due to a couple blown out knees. But being the type of person not to let fear scare her off (heck, she bought an 8' foot snake for her act before even touching a snake in real life!), it's no surprise that she didn't let the fear of speaking in public stop her from becoming a public speaker/ life coach/podcaster.In this episode we talk about how she made that transition and about the focus of her podcast "Spark Your Inner Fire for the Creative Mind." I had a great time talking to Priscilla and would recommend this episode to all creatives and people going through a transition; whether by choice or because they were forced to.

HB Barnum is a behind the scenes legend as well, at both Motown and Capital Records, and has worked with such artists as Barry White, Lou Rawls, Brian Wilson and even toured with the Beatles before they were a house hold name. Sylvan explains how HB's mentoring has has a profound influence on his musical development. Being a later bloomer as a musician, HB really helped him catch up and grow as a musician.Sylvan was invited to join HB's gospel choir gaining a lot of knowledge from the Choir members, and learned much from the experience performing everywhere from small hot sweaty churches in south LA to Walt Disney Concert Hall. We also talk about how working with the choir he has adapted some of the soulful feel in to his style of music.
