Today on The #Antipreneur Show we say FAKE IT TIL YOU MAKE IT!
Jono talks about how in every aspect of his life, to move forward he’s had to in one way or another, “fake it” to get started. A lot of opportunity requires experience, and you have to go into it knowing you’ll be able to learn the rest at a quick pace, but you can’t go in blind.
Dan makes a great point that you still need TALENT. Talking around things can only go so far, if you can’t deliver, you don’t get to stick around.
Jono breaks down the major difference between being a weasel and being ambitious. You need a percentage of certainty to pull off the “fake it til you make it” thing. Your personality goes a long way.
Dan talks about the LEVEL of skill, ambition, and everything you need to have to be able to break into a new endeavor. You should always be aware of it, rather than assuming things will be fine. Then you continue to level up with more experience.
Jono challenges Dan to create Lord Of The Rings final battle-style graphics that he has to deliver since it is a verbal contract. (and dan does not deliver)

Today on The #Antipreneur Show we implore you to STOP NOT STARTING!
First there’s a quick conversation about the 90s television series Renegade and Highlander and how they may have been the same show starring the same person, but they’re definitely not.
So many people get in their own way, but there are always alternative and resourceful routes that can get you where you want to go.

Dan talks about his band Lifted making a music video, and instead of spending thousands of dollars, they did a casting call for extras that doubled as filming a reel for the actors.
Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/MY8btxqm_CQ
Jono talks about how he and his friends always wanted to make a comic, and didn’t think it was possible until he crafted the idea to make A Comic For Flint: HOPE that he put together to raise money for charity.
Check out a page from the comic here: https://www.jonodiener.com/after-ice-cream
The guys talk about hating excuses and how they always get in the way.
Then Jono opens up about a children’s book his therapist gave him and how it changed his perspective.
Now GET OUT THERE and STOP NOT STARTING!

In this episode of The #Antipreneur Show, Dan and Jono say YOUR IDEAS SUCK!

Ideas are nothing if they stay ideas. That sucks.

Just like our previous episode, ACTION = TRACTION. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzxmfh8y7h

We had the idea to do this episode, which may or may not even be a good idea, but at least we tried it. It’s all about trial and error. Learning from your mistakes.

Ideas should also be for the greater good and service the big picture. Ideas for the sake of placeholders or filling in blanks end up being more about ego than your project.

Your first draft will always suck. But it’s a great foundation, and at least having a foundation is better than having nothing.

On this episode of The #Antipreneur Show, Dan and Jono want you to KILL YOUR DARLINGS!
The phrases “Kill Your Darlings” originates in the writing space, explaining the concept of getting rid of unnecessary storylines, characters and sentences. It also applies into business.
First, Jono quotes the almighty DAVE GROHL when he said, “Don’t bore us, get to the chorus.” And explains how eliminating fluff in your messaging just leaves great content. https://youtu.be/eQV95ehUU4s
Next, Dan speaks on what’s better for the end user. Remember, you are NOT your client and you need to be servicing them based on what they want.
Then Jono talks about the problem with holding onto things and concepts out of principle. Sure, you may have come up with a great idea, but does it serve the bigger picture of your project? Remember, if you don’t use it this time you can always use it later!
Finally, Dan and Jono talk about the power of editing. How no one wants to see the 10 hours of raw files, but rather focus on the finished, concise product. They made a Lord Of The Rings extended cut... Do we really need more walking on mountains?
