Friday Habit with Joel Guelzo

“The talent I have and I know I have is to get up and go do something. I don’t squander a moment; I just get it done.” @joelguelzo on the @thefridayhabitpodcast.

I’ve known Joel for a while – we’ve worked together, we’ve collaborated on projects and he’s my nephew so we have to see each other on holidays and all that. The thing I’ve always admired about him is that when he has an idea for something he just executes. There’s not a lot of waiting around, hoping for inspiration or for the perfect circumstances; he does the best he can with what he has. With the help of a lot of friends and sheer will he has released his movie @normanthefilmthat’s been in progress for 9 years. I don’t many people that have the kind of grit it takes to do something like that.

The Friday Habit is more of a business podcast but if you’re trying to bring some kind of creative project into this world (like me!) it’s well worth it to listen to the this two part episode with some fellow believers. 

Also – out there somewhere is an illustration of a hippo-bee that I drew for a board game Joel made. See – my guy is PROLIFIC. 😅
