The Joy of Being The Godfather of Makers | UYGW075

I couldn’t be more thrilled for the return of my podcast, Unleashing YOUR Great Work, now in it’s THIRD season! And what better guest to kick it off than Jimmy Diresta, host of the hit Netflix series, “Making Fun”, and YouTube sensation. Jimmy is an artist, TV personality, video producer, and educator that describes his life-long passion as being a “maker”. Inspired by the works of Warhol, Picasso, Steven Tyler and Mariah Carey (to name a few), Jimmy always knew that a maker is what he was born to be. In this Season 3 premier episode, Jimmy takes us on his journey of where he began, where he plans to go, and how the unforeseen and unknown are the perfect places to find your inspiration. A teasing take-away from Jimmy: don’t trust your gut instinct right away! Jimmy is a firm believer of sticking to his guns, and allowing the process of creation to maintain authenticity and spontaneity. Listen in to this week’s episode to learn more on how Jimmy earned his well deserved title, “The Godfather of Makers.”
