I’m not one for dichotomies, but recently I heard a great talk by Erwin McManus on the power of encouragement vs discouragement and it resonated with me because it echoed the sentiments of my 2019 New Year’s Resolution, which was to support my friends more. I dive deeper into the importance of uplifting those around you while still being honest in giving your opinion—just not doing so under the guise of “tough love”. After you’re done with this lessons, comment down below with your thoughts or questions. Thanks for tuning in.

ABOUT THE SERIES:
With over 15 years of experience WORKING in the entertainment industry at the top level, learning from the best of the best, I (Phil Svitek) am now on a journey of paying it forward. I believe that ideas are meant to be shared, not hoarded and furthermore, if you are successful then you owe the next generation a roadmap. As someone who has been there across various roles such as producer, director, editor, writer, podcaster and even high level executive, I know the struggles and what it takes to tackle and overcome the challenges that artists face on the road to accomplishment. As you already may know too well, an artist’s life can be extremely volatile, with many high’s and low’s – it takes more than just industry skills and knowledge to make it. To be successful, you need to have the right mental fortitude to reach your dreams. I believe in a 360 approach – combining technical theory with practice, along with personal development skills that are directly related to what it takes to be successful as a digital artist. Each week, I draw from these experiences, learnings and exploration to offer you insights, concepts and findings with specific takeaways to benefit you. I’ll recommend books, podcasts, movies, etc to help further illustrate the ideas highlighted within each episode. For more free resources, visit http://philsvitek.com.
