Hollywood Insider

MEET THE HOLLYWOOD INSIDER

Hollywood is more than a place. It’s a story. Actually, it’s many stories, as many as we can make up in our heads.

Simply put, Hollywood means something different to everyone. Your story depends on whether you live there, you like or loathe celebrity, are outgoing or shy, religious or secular. No two people see the same Hollywood.

Today’s guest, Harry Lowell, is a man who lives and breathes Hollywood. Not the Hollywood of glitz and glamor, but the Hollywood of creative expression, the Hollywood of storytelling.

Harry knew he wanted to tell the kind of stories that live on a screen when he was a kid. Luckily, for him and for us, he never lost his childlike curiosity, excitement, and passion for the world of storytelling.

You will find his story refreshing, inspiring, and revealing about what matters in life and business, about the things that make you feel alive and keep you true to yourself.

Here are some of the highlights of today’s episode:

  • Powerful life lessons from Harry Lowell’s dad
  • The importance of mentorship
  • The ego’s role in your success or failure
  • Why you must master your relationship to time
  • The real power of teamwork
  • How to successfully pitch anything to anyone
  • The biggest obstacle to your success
  • Powerful branding tips
  • Harry’s biggest mistake

Make Believe You

YOU ARE A MADE-UP STORY

Your life is make believe. I expect you to deny it and call me crazy. How can your very “real” life be make believe?

How can your dreams, your hopes, your joy, and your pain be make believe?

Bear with me. I’m not saying your life is fake. I’m saying that you and I and everyone else create our lives, our realities, through stories that begin in the imagination and are embellished by our minds. Is that good or bad?

Willie Shakespeare said it best in Hamlet, Act 2, Scene 2, “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” And our boy, Willie, earned the right to say that. He was so damned good at storytelling!

So, what the hell does any of this have to do with today’s podcast? Everything. Our guest is Dr. Adrian McIntyre, a storytelling master who helps people achieve high performance communication.

Adrian understands that we are all hardwired to tell and love stories. He’s a guy with a heightened self-awareness. He will expand your mind in this podcast episode where you will learn:

  • How story is natively human
  • Why stories “wake you up” by releasing feel good chemicals in your brain
  • The brilliant insight that “story is to humans as water is to fish”
  • The simple story structure that will immediately make you a better storyteller
  • The relationship between drama and your personal and business stories
  • Why you should understand the Hero’s Journey
  • How “story listening” gives you greater storytelling power
  • Why your weaknesses hold the key to your strength and success
  • The importance of discovering your “story-print” (not unlike your fingerprint)
  • How story can help you grow by serving the world
  • SO MUCH MORE…

BOOKS IN THIS PODCAST

The War of Art by Steven Pressfield (Adrian’s favorite book)

The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus

The Hero’s Journey: The Collected Works of Joseph Campbell by Joseph Campbell

The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell (audio book)
