What’s happening, guys?
I’m super psyched to introduce this week’s podcast guest.
Contemporary artist Bradley Theodore came up in New York and Miami, starting in tech before making a significant imprint on the art world.
He gave me an honest and compelling insight into how he overcame his doubts and naysayers to put himself at the cutting edge of art and visual imagery.
Who is Bradley Theodore?
Bradley’s work first grabbed me at Hotel Chantelle, an upscale restaurant in London. He’d been commissioned to put up a mural there. Since that fateful day, I’ve seen his incredible creations pop up everywhere since.
He’s had some fantastic output over the last few years, including a collaboration with Rolls Royce, his own Puma clothing line, and work with Google Tilt and Moleskin. Not bad for a guy in whom nobody believed.
Bradley is a massive advocate for self-belief and he explains in detail his approach to dealing with naysayers and haters.
What you can learn from this show
I’ve been inviting not only great businesspeople on this show but also nimble thinkers. You should always surround yourself with people who are more successful or intelligent, as you can learn from them and grow. My conversation with Bradley Theodore was no different.
It’s great to have entrepreneurs on the show because they don’t see pitfalls and turn problems into solutions. Bradley’s insane social skills, tech background, and positive attitude have carried him to the absolute pinnacle of his industry.
The great thing about Bradley is his insistence that art is universal and is everybody’s to enjoy. However, his savvy has meant that he makes a comfortable income from what he loves. You’ll learn some key aspects of monetising your passions.
He’s got a phenomenal story, and I’m genuinely grateful to him for swinging by the channel and having a chat with me.
