Episode 5

Gaining Focus with Ben Lumley

We know what you’re thinking what the ‘F’ is a ‘sports photographer doing on a marketing podcast???

But Ben is here on Purpose. Ben is one of the smartest people we know and is a real inspiration to us both.

This conversation is amazing and properly worth listening to. So sit back, pay attention and give yourself the time to listen to listen to proper wisdom.

We speak about:

  • GaryVee & Motivational Porn ...
  • Doing work you’re proud of ...
  • Follow the joy don’t follow the money…
  • Creatives shouldn’t have an elevator pitch …
  • Building business relationships (Fiona will be happy) ...
  • Removing the transactional elements from a creative business 
  • At this point, I stopped taking notes and just listened so there are definitely good bits in this bit ...
  • Does the work you do stop the scroll?
  • The time to think, to be creative …
  • You don’t get the time and creative freedom if your client doesn’t trust you …
  • Mastery of craft … 

and that’s where we leave today and that’s why Ben has a part two coming next week!!!
