If you’ve ever wanted to sell or explain anything to anyone, then do we have the three minute pitch show for you.

Today I’ll be talking with Brant Pinvidic, award-winning film director, veteran TV producer, Founder and CEO of INvelop Entertainment, and host of the Why I’m Not Podcast, and a brand new business-based podcast, IPO. 

Brant has sold more than 300 TV and movie projects, sold TV shows like Extreme Makeover:Weightloss Edition and Bar Rescue, which have grossed nearly a billion dollars in revenue. He is also the author of a really fun and transformative read we can all benefit from, “The 3-Minute Rule”

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today. About how to say less and get more from any pitch, conversation, or presentation. Plus we’ll talk about Bon Jovi and landscaping, 49ers and Wrestlemania, a cherry-red GTO judge, what on earth is a butt funnel, and what in the world Cameron Diaz and 57 fuzzy bunnies in a hammock has to do with anything.
