This episode's guest is an incredibly busy father, entrepreneur, creative, and Forbes Top 30 Under 30 winner. Not only that, but he's responsible for YouTube's "#1 Ad of the Decade" and has helped brands like Amazon, Yahoo, Kraft, Coca-Cola, Old Navy, and many more.
Today, we discuss creativity and how to view your life from a bit of a different perspective while using your own mortality to drive your growth and decisions.
I caught up with Travis while he was on his way to a property that he's rehabbing so our scheduled time was cut a bit short, but the contents are very valuable.
