Authority Marketing Machine
Episode 1 - Alex Ferrari: Follow Your Dreams, but don’t be an Idiot
What’s your mission?
What impact does your mission have on others or on yourself?
Following your dreams and establishing a real, meaningful cause is essential to success in work and life. Finding motivation, routines, mindset, and path to follow can be tricky and exhausting in the process. In the end, if you allow yourself to embark on that journey, it will be worth it. You’ll hopefully find your own personal freedom—and your wallet will thank you, too.
On today’s episode, I talk with Alex Ferrari, the film hustle guru. Having been chewed up and spit out by the film industry over the last 20-some years, he has continuously anchored himself to his passion and mission. Now, as he continues to work in film, podcasts, and more, he works every day to help others follow their dreams, too.
Alex shares about his own experiences—including his own struggle with an inflated ego and imposter syndrome—and the key moments, strategies, and mindset shifts that resulted in his massive accomplishments today.
So get ready to learn about finding your mission and building your own marketing machine.
