On this week’s Enjoyable Listen Time, we’re talking with Dale Mackey and Shawn Poynter, creators of The Central Collective. Tune in to hear more about fried pies, national photography and good sports and learn how their good cop/bad cop dynamic (and their shunning of pleated pants), resulted in a fun, creative space for our community.
“It just feels good to be around people who are nice.”
Albert Einstein once said “Creativity is intelligence having fun.” We’ve been known to break into song during a brainstorming session — not sure if that is our intelligence having fun, or us just goofing off. But, we do know if we take ourselves too seriously, the work suffers, and that’s not good for anyone.
We first decided our second rule, No Pleated Pants, would best be depicted through a dramatic reading, but since our skills serve best in the design world rather than drama, we created a visual representation instead.
Bill Foster, photographer of the famous and “mildly well-known”, talks with Chris McAdoo and George Middlebrooks about dodging chairs in the US Navy, shooting celebrities on stage, and fighting iPads at Bonnaroo. Bill discusses the importance of learning to accept criticism, be objective and not be an a**hole.
Let’s face it, in order to succeed in this industry, confidence is a MUST. We all have egos – usually fragile egos – and those egos can turn into monsters. Which is why our number one rule is “Don’t Be an A**hole.”
My old science textbook from middle school says that it takes 21 days to develop a new habit, and we wanna develop the habit of writing, sharing and getting original content out there every day. So… we’ll be writing a blog post, making a video, or maybe even sharing a podcast ERRYDAY for the next 30 days. Well, 21 business days if you wanna get technical.
