How to Find Your New Horizon with Jon “Long Jon Sparrow” Boersma (AoL 073)

February 2, 2017

Show notes:

For many of us creators, we do things because we have a passion for it. The question often is, how do we monetize something we enjoy doing without taking the fun out of it? Or, if we're doing it because we see it as a mission - how do we keep from tainting that mission? Like today's guest, I believe, if done right, you can take something you love to do and make a living doing it. That's why I believe in Fizzle so much. That's exactly what they teach people to do. In this session, Laila and I sit down with an entrepreneur who has taken his passion of geeking out as Jack Sparrow to another level. He gets paid to actually impersonate Jack as Long Jon Sparrow. In today's chat with Jon Boersma, we find out what inspired him to impersonate Captain Jack Sparrow, how much of his work was learned from formal education vs being self taught, and we dive a bit into how knowing about the 4 basic personalities have helped him in his career and how others can apply the same info to their lives. As always, thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!
