Wearing Many Hats- Steve Barnes

Episode Summary

Steve Barnes is comfortable in front of a camera and makes a ton of money behind one. This week, Barnes—who is an actor, radio host, content producer, and head of Barnes Creative Studios—talks to us about his work as a multi-hyphenate entrepreneur.

Episode Notes

"Always have a hustle that’s paying the bills," says Steve Barnes, who knows plenty about hustle. Barnes, who got his start as a radio host and actor, combined his love of travel with a passion for content production to launch Barnes Creative Studios. Now, he travels the world shooting promo videos and VR for brands and destinations that make us want to book that vacation time.

In this week's episode, he talks to us about getting ahead of the pack with technology (and how working with camera drones ten years ago has led to an interest in VR), how to talk budget with a potential client without scaring them off, and why honing your listening skills and taking the time to build trust can help answer questions your clients aren't even asking yet. He also shares why driving for Uber (in a Tesla, no less!) isn't off-brand for him.
