Bad Yogi Podcast S2E1: Secrets to Authentic Success with JP Sears

JP Sears is one of those people you hope is as awesome, hilarious, and authentic in real life as he is in his online persona. Well, he’s not.

He’s much, much cooler, if that’s even possible.

I’ve known JP for a while now since we collaborated on a few videos over the years, and one thing that might surprise you to know is that he’s not JUST a funny guy. He has really interesting perspectives on success, authenticity, finding your “calling,” the ego, and has depth beyond his humor.

That’s unique in the world of social media where a lot of famous people are nothing but hollow versions of their true selves.

We talk about every aspect of finding authentic success in today’s episode, including… 

– How to pursue your passions when you still need to make money. Sure, it’s not “all about the money” but you still don’t want to be homeless!
– Times in both our careers where we sacrificed the purity of our work to make a paycheck.
– Is it egotistical to run a business centered on YOURSELF? How do you overcome the guilt of self promotion?
– Are we all too sensitive or just more woke?
– Why fame feels completely false.
– Do EVERYONE’S gifts really need to be seen by the world?
– Which failure still make him cringe.
… and much, much more.

    I really loved this interview with JP Sears! What a cool authentic dude with a lot to say (most of it resonated with me – I’d say 89%). Thank you both for making my morning routine a little deeper and funnier. Namaste!
