Welcome to another episode of the iCreateDaily podcast, Creator!
We have a FIRE episode today with the dynamically direct and entertaining Owen Video! Owen is a YouTube, Facebook Live, and video marketing expert and shares his advice on branding, entrepreneurialism, creativity and so much more.
Owen, born with the entrepreneurial spirit, got his start at eight years old. We won’t give too much away, but you’ll learn how his “boring summer vacations” were the perfect setting for his innate creativity to thrive.
We got so many amazing ideas to implement from this episode for the iCreateDaily brand as well as others in our family of brands. We would highly recommend taking notes because Owen shares a lot of tactical ideas you can run with.
One of the most rewarding things for people who create educational content online is when people actually implement what they share. That’s one of the biggest reasons we’re inspired to do this podcast, so you can run with the ideas and create the lifestyle you want… daily!
OH … let’s not forget, on top of all he’s achieved, Owen has been cancer free for almost 3 years! A journey he shared publicly through his brands as he was going through treatments.

“Spend 50% of your time developing your talent. Spend the other 50% of your time developing your rolodex.”
“Perfect to you is irrelevant to those who buy your product.”
“Think about the mark you want to make on mankind instead of the commas you want in your checking account.”
“Bring your love of creativity into everything you do.”
“You have to know how to tell a story on YouTube. Just emoting about your life doesn’t work.”
“Stop complaining. Shut up and work.”
“Celebrate other people’s success the way you want others to celebrate your success.”
“Stop pleasing people who don’t affect your bottom line.”
