How Street Artist Marc Ecko Launched A Billion Dollar Clothing Company
Today I’m pumped to share the unusual story behind how Marc Ecko turned his love of street art into a billion dollar clothing company. You see, like most artists, he got the “itch” early on, but he abandoned his craft for a much more stable career move – pharmacy school. He didn’t last long though, and he soon dropped out to launch a clothing company. He shares everything on this new Social Triggers Insider podcast, and here’s why I’m excited to share this with you: Marc Ecko’s Secrets to Success in Business Here are 5 reasons why you should listen to this podcast today: 1. This isn’t some “rosy” tale of crazy success. Yes, he built one of the largest clothing companies, but he flirted with failure and beat it. It’s inspiring. 2. He’s a commercial artist. He never “sold out,” but he did turn his art into a successful business. All business owners should take note. 3. If you’ve ever stressed about designs or logos, you’ll see what Marc Ecko – the street artist – thinks about logos. It might surprise you. 4. Have you ever thought, “It’s gotta be hard to build a business based on creativity?” If yes, you’ll see how Marc Ecko makes it sound like anyone can do it. 5. And more.

Episode 85: Derek Halpern: Transparency, Confrontation, and How to Grow an 8-Figure Business
Today we have a different type of guest on the show, and we’re really excited to bring you this interview. Derek Halpern is the founder of Social Triggers and he’s an expert marketer and entrepreneur. As you’ll hear, not only is Derek smart and funny, he can also be pretty controversial. Derek developed his effective marketing approaches with some wildly popular websites, one which attracted over a million page views in a single day. Social Triggers was originally created to help people build their online business through courses, but it’s now transitioned into being a software company. Derek shares his experiences with this transition and why he made this move, as well as revealing the details of his recent move into the personal consumer space with a product called Truvani, in which he has partnered with Vani Hari (aka The Food Babe). He also talks about why he recently started a daily vlog, how he manages to do this, and a whole lot more. Derek really says what’s on his mind and telling the truth in a very straightforward way. He’s big on transparency, and we think you’ll find this conversation refreshing. Show notes and links for this episode can be found at

There are 2 types of passion: One is good. The other is very bad.
There are 2 types of passion: One is good. The other is very bad. I invited Adam Alter, NYT best-selling author, and professor at NYU, to explain the difference. I find myself walking the line between these “good” and “bad” passions. Especially when it comes to my business. You may notice the same thing. So, here’s what I’d like to hear from you… Leave a quick comment sharing your personal experience with each type of passion. Also, if you know someone who may struggle with the same issue, can you do me a favor? Share it. Also, here’s what else you can expect from this 30 minute interview: * There are two types of passion. One is good. The other is very bad. Find out which one you have and why. * Two simple ways to break bad habits: distract and replace. Adam walks you through each example in the video. * Why you should read Adam Alter’s new book Irresistible.

The psychological reason why you should sell what you know
Before I got started packaging up my skills and expertise as online courses, I had a HUGE mental block standing between me and my success. I kept telling myself, “Why would anyone buy this? If they just buy these books, read these sites, and start testing things on their own, they’ll be able to figure it out.” Just writing that today makes me feel like an idiot. Why? As Sweet Brown would say, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.” Reading 1000s of books, research papers, and then spending months (if not years) figuring out how to IMPLEMENT the stuff takes time. And… “Ain’t nobody got time for that.” But check it: There’s a psychological reason why you SHOULD sell what you know. Even if they can find what you know somewhere else at no cost. Why You Should Sell Your Expertise On today’s podcast, I brought Francesca Gino, a Harvard professor and author of the book Sidetracked (aff), on Social Triggers to talk about why people only trust information with a price tag. Download audio file (17-Social-Triggers-Why-you-should-sell-what-you-know-with-Harvard-professor-Francesca-Gino.mp3) (If you can’t see the audio player, here’s the MP3 download). Also, if you get a second today, can you please leave a review on iTunes? Reviews are how iTunes rank podcasts – and taking 10 seconds to leave a review will be a HUGE help. Thank you! We cover a lot more game-changing insights in addition to that, so download this podcast and listen today. You’ll see: * why people CHOOSE to wait in line for hours for something they can find somewhere else… instantly. * Why creating “rituals” can help you perform high stress tasks better. * And more. When you’re done, since I mentioned a mental block I had about business, I’d love for you to share one mental block you think you have preventing you from getting what you want.
