Season 2 is upon us! My first guest is David Bianchi: The founder of Exertion Films, actor, producer, screenwriter, motivational speaker, and spoken word poet. We cover soooooo many different topics here, and we go from casual conversation to some very deep esoteric topics, and bring you along for the journey!

We chat about…
“Once you walk into the warmth of the sunlight then you understand there s another way.”
“If you can remove the ego, and you can try to remain teachable and look for other perspectives, then you can step out of complacency.”
“The unexpected mentor is available to you if you know what you re looking for. If I m operating at a certain vibrational frequency within myself, which could be a frequency for success, i am inevitably going to see things in my life that are success oriented or synonymous with the path that I’ve chosen for myself. If i choose to vibrate at a lower frequency, I will see things that are equated to that particular frequency. When you make yourself available for the unintentional, invisible or unexpected mentor, it ll come to you.”
“Put in your time and become a master at what you do.”
“The gatekeeper, if you want to look at it that way, is a blockade from your experience. I don’t disregard the word no, I embrace the word no. If you tell me no, that means I m not going to go straight anymore. I m going to go left or right, I m going to keep moving. So I don t necessarily see this thing called the gatekeeper . What I do see, is I see transitions. I see rights of passage. I see rungs in the ladder. I see the perpetual climb.The sweat, blood, tears, the calluses on your hands are part of the process. But I don t think there really is a gatekeeper because at the end of the day we gotta get ourselves out of bed. IF there really is any real gatekeeper, it s inside of you. It s not outside of you. Because people can tell you no 50 times in Hollywood, and then you make a choice as to whether or not you want to cower and go home. Or you can make a choice to persevere.”
The constant artistic integrity and the reinvention of oneself is an inside job.”
