Author and Entrepreneur James Oliver, Jr. on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Welcome to the THIRD ANNIVERSARY episode of the Curve the Cube Podcast!! My special guest on this milestone of a day is author and entrepreneur, James Oliver, Jr. of WeMontage, who wrote a book that I absolutely fell in love with and have discussing in pieces with a few of my most recent guests. His book, The More You Hustle, the Luckier You Get, provides a deluge of raw, relatable trials and triumphs that all of us shooting for a dream can find both humor and comfort in.

In this episode, James parses out the difference between being a successful entrepreneur and having a successful business, and we touch back on those concepts I discussed earlier in this series of episodes:

  • Listening to that inner voice and honoring your true self
  • Going out on your own takes effing hard work
  • Keeping the faith
  • "Don't make safe choices in life because it's convenient to do so."

James doesn’t pull any punches and was simply the PERFECT pick to sum up some of the main touch points I’ve been covering all along on this show. So….

Enjoy!!

And, thank you from the bottom of my heart for listening for these past three years; as you've heard me say on the last couple of episodes, my plan has been to flipping the name of the show from from “Curve the Cube: Where Dreamers Become Doers” to “Dreamers Become Doers: Curve the Cube and Do the Impossible.” But, after a very thoughtful conversation with my mentor, Glenn the Geek from the Horse Radio Network, there is an even BIGGER change that I now have planned for the show and hope you can all get behind. As the coincidence of good timing would have it, Glenn and I will be spending some time together this weekend. So, he’ll join me in recording a fully fleshed-out announcement and explanation of that change. So, be sure to look for that, as it could even be released ahead of the next scheduled release date for the show, which would normally be the first.

Jamaal "Visualist" Clark on His Second Curve the Cube Podcast Appearance

I had a chance to catch up with long-time friend of the podcast--artist and photographer, Jamaal "Visualist" Clark.

We chat about his painting, his photography, and expanding his horizons and his vision for the future!

Now, I didn't have a chance to record a Learning Curve segment for this episode. Things have been CRAZY these last couple of weeks with technical issues post-Hurricane Irma and with preparing for my International Podcast Day broadcast. But, I promise to get The Learning Curve back on track for the next episode!!

Also, I'll be starting up a new segment in a future episode where I share something cool that a former guest or one of you guys is doing in pursuing your dream. And, I'm open to suggestions for naming that segment. Drop me a line on the Dreamers Become Doers Facebook page to make your suggestion!

Enjoy!!

Haitian Artist to the Stars Jason JaFleu Fleurant on the Curve the Cube Podcast

One of my favorite people (and my birthday buddy), Jason "Jafleu" Fleurant, visits the podcast FOR THE THIRD TIME!! He's our first three-peat, and this is our most exciting conversation to DATE! He shares fun stories of his milestones, opens up about the struggles, lays down insightful knowledge, and comes through with all the feels. He is a remarkable talent who is a rising star!!

Included in this episode is a VERY special announcement of my own--one that is a culmination of 6 months of solid hard work on my part and mentorship on the part of Glenn the Geek from the Horse Radio Network. It's HUGE.

This episode is being released ahead of schedule, as Hurricane Irma is most likely going to knock out my power and internet for a while. Eek! So, to all my listeners in Florida, download it NOW, so you can use it as a distraction while you are hunkering down. Be safe. Take Irma seriously, and I will talk to you all on the other side!

Enjoy!!

Vlogger and Content Creator Kate Volman on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Hey! Welcome to episode 121 of Curve the Cube where we talk to people walking the walk--those dreamers who've become doers--or, "curvists," as I like to call them, since they curve their way around those obstacles and figure out how to get stuff done. And, this episode features a lady who I am not only so happy, but also so proud to call a friend. Her name is Kate Volman, and if you are also a fan of my other podcast, Eggheads After Hours, then you have heard her voice before giving all kinds of fantastic tips, or "Business Bites," as she calls them, about how to propel your business forward. She is undeniably smart and strategic, AND she has figured out how to really craft her career with purpose.

Kate's specialty is vlogging--a.k.a., “video blogging”--and using videos to create fantastic brand content, communicate with her followers, and create lasting relationships. If you have a blog, vlog, marketing team, or are just thinking, "What's the best way for me to get my message out there and build an online reputation?" Kate is for you!!

Now, the Learning Curve segment at the end of this episode is going to be SUPER short, because Kate does such a fantastic job of digging in deep with her ideas and creating clear action items for you to take. So, I really don't have to do much. She makes my job so much easier, lol.

So, let's get on with my talk with Kate Volman. You are going to gain so much valuable information and see pretty quickly why I adore her so.

Enjoy!!

Photographer Nikyta Haynes on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Thanks so much for joining me on episode 120 where I feature one of my new best friends (seriously... I told her I was adopting her as my new little sister), photographer Nikyta Haynes!! Her brand is Kyta Beez and her tag line is "Definitely Different" and I can personally testify that this girl STANDS OUT!! I got to meet her at an art exhibit by long-time friend of the show, Jafleu. She was just walking around doing her thing and taking pictures. I had brought my son, Jordon, along with me and surprised him by bringing his camera, so he could take pictures, too. (He wants to be a photographer when he grows up, after all.)

We ran into Nikyta while wandering the various photography studies and Jordon and I were both instantly taken by her. She was so kind to him, he loved her "cool" camera, as he put it, and they even took photos together in one of the professional studios. You simply don't meet kind people like that everyday. And, when she gave me a glimpse into her story, I just HAD to have her on the show!

And, she was so nice in joining me at my Entrepreneur Influencers Brunch hosted by Style Chambers last weekend. She took some great photos of the event, which you can browse through here.

Now, sit back and relax and listen to this inspiring episode with Nikyta and check out her work at Kytabeez.com! It's episode 120... enjoy!

Yami Avendano of Twinfinite.net on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Hey there! Welcome to episode 119 of the Curve the Cube podcast. I can't believe it's already episode 119. Thank you so much for being a listener and coming along on this journey with me. I hope you are becoming more and more of a curvist yourself, too!!

This episode features a girl I am sooo excited to introduce you to, in case you don't know her, yet. She's Yamilia Avendano, a.k.a. Yami, and she founded her uber successful video game press site, Twinfinite.net, about 6 years ago. We sat down right on the heels of her coming back from E3 and had SUCH a fun time! She may seem unassuming and even a bit shy. But, don't let her fool you. She is a force to be reckoned with, and there's simply no stopping her rise to the top! On this episode we talk about how she gets creative with her video series, whether turning your passion into a career makes it feel like a job, feeling you need to do it all (but, for everyone else), and of COURSE, some of her E3 reviews.

In a bit of a formatting toss-up (I warned you I would be playing a bit with the show's format for a few episodes here and there), I will be diving deep into the whole passion-feeling-like-a-job issue in a mini-solocast before then taking the topic to The Learning Curve. AND, you will be treated to a quick sneak appearance by one of my new favorite people, Glenn the Geek of the Horse Radio Network!

So, just a couple of quick reminders: Please check out all the shows on the Flint Stone Media Podcast Network by going to FSMPodcastNetwork.com. And, join the conversation on Facebook the the Dreamers Become Doers group. Head to DreamersBecomeDoers.com for all the info!

Alrighty, let's get into the conversation with Yami of Twinfinite.net, already! And, I apologize in advance for my massive case of the giggles!!

Become an Industry Influencer with the Curve the Cube Podcast

Thank you for joining me on this 118th episode! It's a solocast about becoming an influencer in your industry, which is very timely for me, as it seems to be starting to happen to me right NOW. I am fresh off of my podcasting presentation to the Mystery Writers of America, Florida Chapter, and it could not have been a more fun event. And, even more, the aftermath has been fantastic and really driven into me the power of being seen as an influencer in your industry.

So, let's dive into the benefits and how-to of becoming an influencer and spark some creative ideas of how you can become an influencer yourself. I switch up the format on this episode, leading with my usual tasty nuggets in The Learning Curve. Then, I treat you to my MWA presentation audio, which is chock-full of tips on how to get booked on podcasts (a GREAT way to gain exposure and be seen as an influencer) and tons of information on how to start your own podcast (also a great way to become known). So, take some good notes on this podcast and become your industry's next influencer!!

Enjoy!!

Jules Pierre-Louis of Hive Hube Media and the Hustle All Day Podcast on the Curve the Cube Podcast

I welcome to the podcast my fabulous friend and guest, Jules Pierre-Louis, co-founder of Hive Hub Media, host of the latest show to be added to the Flint Stone Media Podcast Network, Hustle All Day, and a multi-talented human. He is a true hustler, and on this episode we talk about when the switch flipped for him to break out on his own and what he did to break free. Then, I take the discussion to The Learning Curve on the flip side, of course.

There's an added treat at the end of this episode; so, don't let it confuse you--haha. I'll be sharing a quick clip pulled from Hustle All Day, where I appear as a guest cohost to interview creator James Oliver, Jr. So, you'll hear us both again.

Alright, you fearless curvist you... It's now time to sit back and relax and enjoy this convo with Jules Pierre-Louis about flipping the switch and breaking free. It's the 117th episode of the Curve the Cube Podcast!!

Curve the Cube Podcast - Finding Your Tribe

On this next solocast for episode #116 of the Curve the Cube podcast, I dive into the idea of building your personal network. It is not only advantageous, but essential (and, thereby, very important) to build yourself a personal network while navigating your passion pursuit. Who else is going to understand your struggles--those times you want to pull your hair out, give up, start questioning EVERYTHING, can't find your way through a seemingly insurmountable obstacle? We are a select tribe, people! And, no one understands our level of crazy (um, I mean "commitment") like another who's in the game right along with us.

So, on this podcast, I talk about the many benefits to be gleamed from forming your network. Then, at the end, I take the "how-to" of creating your own inner circle to The Learning Curve with 3 Ways to Find Your Tribe!

Enjoy!!

Michael Hall of Digital Grass and MediumFour on the Curve the Cube Podcast 

Hi, guys!!!

I'm so glad you guys are joining me for episode #115 of Curve the Cube where my guest is serial entrepreneur, Michael Hall of Digital Grassroots Innovation & Technology (D.G.I.T.) and Medium Four. Michael and I get into a LOT on this podcast: mental blocks, diversity, finding your target audience, and the concept of dying empty. He really gave me such good stuff to work with. But, I decided to take two things to The Learning Curve at the end of the episode:

  1. Getting around that mental roadblock that naturally happens when you are super excited about a great idea, but then realize you're not the first to market. And,
  2. What Michael says in this conversation about dying empty hit me so hard, I just HAD to talk more about that, too.

There's tons to digest, guys; so, I tried keep my own updates in this intro as short as possible. But, yeah... I have a lot going on, too!

SO... with all that said, sit back and relax with this, the 115th episode of the Curve the Cube podcast with Michael Hall.

Enjoy!!

Be Relentless in the Pursuit of Your Dreams with the Curve the Cube Podcast

Today's Curve the Cube solocast episode is all about being relentless!! My dad calls it my "bulldog" effect, and I'm going to break down what it means, the dos and don'ts of being relentless, why you shouldn't be afraid to hear "no" (and what to do when you DO hear it), AND my biggest tip for not giving up (which actually can help in any number of life situations, as a matter of fact).

I know the practice of being relentless doesn't come easy for everybody. So the first step is to decide everyday that you will move forward. Give yourself a pat on the back... you've already accomplished your minimal daily productivity by listening to this one episode! Now, when you're done, go out and be relentless in your pursuit of your dreams!

Thanks so much for listening. Remember to find your passion and do your thing with the Curve the Cube podcast!!

Entertainer Michael 'Spaz' McGoorty of the Pure Zeppelin Experience on the Curve the Cube Podcast

This super-charged, energy-filled, and insightful Curve the Cube podcast episode is brought to you by the creative electricity flowing unabated through Michael 'Spaz' McGoorty's veins. This is a man who has, through music, acting, and comedy, managed to channel his creative energy into some highly impressive projects. He becomes Robert Plant as he leads The Pure Zeppelin Experience, has starred in Jesus Christ Superstar, and is half of the comedy company duo, Casey 'N' Spaz Comedy with nephew, Casey Peruski.

And, he lends his advice to all fellow curvists as we talk about these three topics that I then take to The Learning Curve at the end:

  1. Getting booked: How do you get booked to do a show when you don't have material to show them; but, then, how do you get material to show them without getting booked?
  2. Helping others as a great way to help yourself
  3. Make your own opportunities happen

And... BIG NEWS!! Spaz has put together a fantastic offer for Curve the Cube's local listeners.

Curve the Cube Solocast with Host Jaime Legagneur About Working for Free

This latest Curve the Cube Podcast episode is all about the conundrum of working for free. Yikes!! When you are working hard toward your dreams and goals, it can be very tempting to take an opportunity that doesn't pay you because there are other potential benefits involved. But, beware--there are leeches out there you have to watch out for and it's easy to be taken advantage of. Some friends of mine help me examine these dilemmas, and I of COURSE take it to The Learning Curve at the end.

I will also share with you my own exciting stockpile of news and a clip of me on my mentor, Glenn's, show, Horses in the Morning. It's an episode full of fun and insightful takeaways. So, keep in mind all the dangers that lurk when you decide to do any work for free and make sure you don't fall into common traps.

Thanks so much for listening. Remember to find your passion and do your thing with the Curve the Cube podcast!!

Charles Milling of Live Hymnal on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Welcome to episode #111 of the Curve the Cube podcast, where I will continue to take you with me on my own journey of curving the cube and also catch up with musician Charles Milling--solo artist and Live Hymnal band leader, previously featured on episode #13. He is a visionary, marrying new sounds with the traditional church, and he and I talk a bunch about Live Hymnal's latest album, Procession while also diving into some totally curvist-aimed topics, like:
1) Dealing with industry changes you never saw coming,
2) The challenge of getting people to say, "I must have that!" about YOUR unique thing, and
3) As a creative, knowing when it's ok to end the pursuit of project perfection.

Then I take those topics to a new segment I'm calling The Learning Curve, where I share specific actionable items, tips, tricks, and pieces of advice for you to put into play as you curve your own cube.

So, buckle up for a pretty packed episode, guys!! It was my first foray into the world of editing with my new software, Hindenburg, and I was super nervous about it!!

Thanks so much for listening. Remember to find your passion and do your thing with the Curve the Cube podcast!!

And, regarding the future of this show, I have made a promise to a podcasting legend that affects you all. I have committed to changing the show's release schedule to the 1st and 15th of every month.

Host Jaime is Curving her own Cube and Gearing up for PME2017

Hey guys! In order to make this podcast an honest resource, it is important for me to share how I'm curving my own cube, too. Well, a must-make-happen item for me for 2017 was to attend at least one podcasting conference this year. It was a BIG, lofty, pie-in-the sky goal that I was determined to make happen, and thanks to Chris Krimitsos and the generous team at Podfest, I'm getting to do just that!!

They have sponsored my ticket for podfest, and I am gearing up... So, take a listen!

It's important, when you are a dreamer wanting to become a doer, not only to take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way, but to do whatever it takes to make the opportunities happen in the first place.

Remember to find you passion and do your thing with the Curve the Cube podcast!!

Enjoy!!

#107 - SOLOCAST - 2017 Kickoff Episode - FINALLY - 20170204

Welcome to episode #107 of Curve the Cube--the podcast where dreamers become doers! I am your host, Jaime Legagneur of the Flint Stone Media Podcast Network.

I'm probably the last person to tell you this, but HAPPY NEW YEAR!! It has been SOOO long since I've been able to bring my voice to you guys, and oh how I have missed you so much!!

I LOVE bringing you podcasts and helping others podcast; but, I had to put it all aside for a little while, and on this episode, I tell you why.

I also recap 2016 and highlight some of the lessons, guests, and issues that made 2016 so fun, special, and insightful. These guests really motivated me to further curve my own cube, and I go over some of the milestones I experienced this year in my own business and passion projects.

In looking ahead to 2017, I share so many bits of exciting news, I can hardly handle it!! But, it's all so great--from the inspiring guests I've already booked to some fun things I have planned for podcasting.

So, buckle in with me for this wild ride I feel like we are all hitched into called 2017. Go from being a dreamer to being a doer.

Remember to find you passion and do your thing with the Curve the Cube podcast!!

Enjoy!!
