I Have Dreams Dammit! is a podcast for those who are pursuing a dream - or living their dream - and want to go a little deeper than just the "go for it" advice. I truly believe that if you have something screaming inside of you, something that you must do, be, or create, then that is something you must pursue. Like in the book, The Alchemist, it is your Personal Legend.
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all." - Helen Keller
Profound and tragic personal loss almost took me out of the game of life, but I survived. Part of the reason I survived is so I can share with others what I have learned on the path towards my dreams. I am bringing my Elixir to my fellow dreamers. I will also be interviewing my professional artist & creative entrepreneur friends to gain a deeper insight into what it takes to launch & thrive in a creative career.
Welcome to the very first episode of I Have Dreams Dammit! - a podcast about the realities of going for your dreams. Your host, Lisa Murray, has a background working in the film and music industries, and she also had a blogging channel on YouTube when YouTube first started. Tragic personal loss took her offline for a while but she's back to share with you what she has learned, and she's bringing her professional artist & creative entrepreneur friends with her to help motivate, educate, and inspired YOU!
New shows will be uploaded every week!
