Now, on to this week's episode.
When you think of the entrepreneurial hustle, filmmakers are not the first to come to mind. But they are a really good example of the mindset and drive that are required of a 7-Figure Small startup.
The broader world of business is moving more toward the Hollywood model of work: forming teams of talent based on what needs to be done, not the illusion of permanent employment. Studios and indie filmmakers have been operating this way since … always.
Zeke Zelker is not only an entrepreneurial filmmaker, he's also a creative pioneer at the forefront of transmedia. Not sure what that means? You're definitely going to want to tune in, because it's fascinating stuff.
Plus, Zeke has a 4-phase approach to the way he gets his projects done. Through our conversation, I relate how Zeke's framework for film projects is applicable to just about anyone who utilizes audience, indie talent, and technology to create a big impact from a tiny business.
