248. BookThinkers Family First. Nick Hutchison

July 20, 2022

There is a financial ROI (return on investment) to reading books!   Our human experiences are not that unique there is a book for every problem you are facing.  You can learn from others who have figured out their health, wealth, finances, and happiness!  Books help us realize what’s possible!  Who do you want to be by the end of this year?  Who do you look up to?  Read a book about someone you admire!
Nick Hutchinson says when he hit ten thousand followers in 2019 on his non fiction book Instagram account that was the tipping point to him realizing he could get paid to read books.  Not only do authors want to leverage Nick’s audience they are now paying him to help create their own.  
Shout out to Evan Carmichael from episode 1 of the Better Call Daddy show for the idea to interview Nick!

247. Blind Pony As True A Story As I Can Tell. Samantha Hart

July 15, 2022

What’s the meaning of a name?  What happened to you?  We are a sum of our life's experiences, and it's up to us to turn them into positive experiences.  It’s not so easy to let go of trauma when it lives inside your soul!  Parents from opposite sides of the track, abuse, and running away from the farm, sometimes life can feel like a cruel joke.  Samantha Hart felt like the blind pony she raised.  She says there are a lot of blind ponies out there.  

Today I’m talking to a risk-taker, a farm girl, and an incredible mommy!  She says as hard as it is talking about generational trauma, she's glad she did.  Better Call Daddy: The Safe Space for Controversy.

Samantha Hart's career has spanned music, film, and advertising, earning her a reputation as an award-winning Creative Director. Her creative marketing campaigns brought prominence and Academy Awards to films such as Fargo, Dead Man Walking, and Boys Don't Cry while earning cult status for independent features, Dazed and Confused, Four Weddings and A Funeral, and Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

With her partner, Sam built a successful company in the advertising industry, Foundation, with over forty employees and offices in Chicago and Los Angeles. Under Sam's leadership, Foundation earned distinction as an early disrupter of the traditional production and post-production models combining the two under one roof.

In 2017, Sam and her partner, James Lipetzky, re-branded and started Wild Bill. The team provides creative through finishing for many clients, including luxury brands, startups, and non-profits.
