Sandy Pianim: Queer, Black and Kinky
Play • 1 hr 2 min

This episode contains strong and suggestive language.

Sandy Pianim is the brand director of Recon, a platform for men and their fetishes, and he’s been on a journey over the past five years to help make Recon a more representative and inclusive platform for men of colour. We discuss the moment the ball-gag dropped and he realised the impact of his work, cleansing his sexual aura and fetish as an opportunity to connect socially with other men in ways that don't always end up with sex. We talk about the ongoing conversations around consent, the central role that communication plays in fetish and using our kinks as a way of understanding ourselves and exploring our capacity for intimacy.

Level Up! Level Up! 🥰 Evaluate, Share, and Elevate!
Making Art Work is open through tomorrow! Join us if you're ready for some massive growth in 2021 But first, let's take it back. In 2010 when I officially began my fine art career I did NOT have an aspirational brand. I didn’t even know I had a brand (though, yes, I did — we all do). I was deeply undervaluing my work, my voice, my efforts, and, in doing so, I was also undervaluing my collectors. Think about it this way — if someone buys something for their home or themselves, they want to enjoy that thing. It matters to them. They find pleasure in it. In order to enjoy something, we have to VALUE it. When you know what you create and WHY it matters, you can easily and naturally share that love with your audience. So HOW do you elevate your work? Head consistently in the right direction. Know WHY you create and why that matters Understand your works value and aesthetic merits Recognize the overall impact your work is creating as a whole (this is your brand) Consistently raise your expectations for what your work can be in the world. THIS IS A LIFELONG PROCESS I began my business by selling a $1 painting. I grew from that deeply undervalued place to a creative practice with collectors on every continent, consistently sold-out collections, and a practice that offers me financial and emotional freedom. LET’S START THAT JOURNEY Sharing, writing, and talking about your work is never truly easy. It is a vulnerable act of bravery! But, without that bravery, your work is mute. Your work is hidden. And that’s not what it was designed for! With your why and your vision in mind, think of how to translate that to the world. If this feels overwhelming right now, DON’T WORRY. This is the focus of Making Art Work and I will coach you through this process. View your brand from the outside. How does your work objectively feel to your ideal customer or collector? When you share your work with your audience online is your work being elevated and valued? How about in-person? There are ALWAYS ways to continually elevate and build-up, and REFINE your work, marketing, and presentation. This is a good thing! It means you get to keep creating and refining! As you go through this process, don't be too hard on yourself. Remember, you are just finding paces to play inside your business! When needed, give yourself a COMPLIMENT SANDWICH. (it works on others and it works on yourself) * Give yourself a two compliments + with an improvement in the middle Remember, sustainability = satisfaction + progress. If you don’t find joy in your work you are going to be burnt out. Making Art Work is open through tomorrow! Join us if you're ready for some massive growth in 2021 IF YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL TO SHARE, YOU HAVE ALSO BEEN GIVEN THE CREATIVITY, ENERGY, KNOWLEDGE, & RESOURCES NEEDED TO SHARE IT.

Episode 60: Nanabah Bulman
Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson. In this series of podcasts I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts, and minds, and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick. In this episode, I'm joined via zoom by the wonderful Nanabah Bulman, a Navajo Baha'i who's been actively engaged in service to her people, especially with the youth. Nanabah tells us about life on the reservation, and shares Navajo culture and beliefs, and what we can learn from the Native Americans. She tells us the Navajo legend of the Twin Brothers, and explains how she strives to live up to the meaning of her name. I hope you enjoy this awesome conversation!

Man is organic with the world. His inner life moulds the environment and is itself also deeply affected by it. The one acts upon the other and every abiding change in the life of man is the result of these mutual reactions." -Shoghi Effendi * QUOTE: "We must build the capacity to truly hear and acknowledge the voices of those who have directly suffered from the effects of racism. This capacity should manifest itself in our schools, the media, and other civic arenas, as well as in our work and personal relations. This should not end with words, but lead to meaningful, constructive action." -National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of the United States, 19 June, 2020 Be sure to subscribe to the Baha’i Blogcast for more episodes on: * YouTube: http://bit.ly/2JTNmBO * iTunes: http://apple.co/2leHPHL * Soundcloud: https://bit.ly/30dX0G4 * Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2IXRAnb If you would like to find out more about the Baha'i Faith visit BAHAI.ORG, and for more great Baha'i-inspired content, check out BAHAIBLOG.NET: http://bahaiblog.net/ Thanks for listening! -Rainn Wilson

Be the Queen (with Elsa Majimbo) - Episode 8
On this episode of Professional Troublemaker, Luvvie is talking to comedian and social media sensation Elsa Majimbo. Pre-global pandemic, Elsa was a journalism student with just over seven thousand followers. Fast forward a few viral videos later, and Elsa is out here with a Fenty endorsement and major corporate partnerships, taking meetings with actors and musicians she's looked up to for years, releasing her own ASMR song about snacks on Apple Music and Spotify, all while millions of people around the world waiting for her to drop her next video. Elsa is making her voice heard through her comedy, which is amazing. And she’s one of those people who was born to speak out in the world - which is why you might be surprised to hear her talk about how she’s actually shy and quite reserved. But her sense of abundance and gratitude and joy for everything she has the opportunity to do right now is infectious and such an example of what is possible if we feel the fear and start doing the thing we want to do regardless. *** Follow @Luvvie everywhere – Instagram, Facebook, Twitter. Check out her New York Times best-selling book I’M JUDGING YOU: The Do-Better Manual! And be sure to pre-order PROFESSIONAL TROUBLEMAKER: The Fear Fighter Manual, Luvvie’s second book, wherever books are sold. Have thoughts about the episode?
