This week I interview Jeremy Cowart, an award-winning photographer, artist, and entrepreneur whose goal in life is to inspire and help others. Cowart talks about his multifaceted and ever-changing career and he gives advice to potential humanitarians and artists. We speak about his latest endeavor The Purpose Hotel, a planned global for-profit hotel chain designed to fuel the work of not-for-profit organizations as well as his new book “I’m Possible” which is coming out soon.
- Why Cowart appreciates the autonomy of his work
- Cowart’s wide-ranging background and his current project
- How Cowart has been able to pursue so many different types of humanitarian projects
- He talks about how he bounces back from failure or difficulty
- His current art is a multimedia effort of painting, graphic design, Photoshop, and drawing
- Why Cowart is “jumping into fear” and his upcoming book launch
- How to reinvent your career and what it means to your followers
- Why it pays to be specific about the jobs you accept
- How you can make a positive impact on the world
- The most difficult and fun aspects of the hotel project
- Why Cowart always chooses family over work
3 Key Points:
- Push through fear and insecurity. Voice your idea and make something great happen.
- The Purpose Hotel is an exciting new humanitarian project scheduled to be finished in 2021.
- Reinventing oneself based on one’s passions is more important than being “liked’.
