Overview

After years as a creative who struggled with perfectionism and the self-imposed pressure of needing to prove he was clever and prolific, Justin has finally learned to let go. Let go of doing it all. Let go of “I’ll be happy when.” Let go of comparing himself and his achievements to others. Now, through his work and his talks, he wants to enable others to do the same.

This session covers lessons learned from Justin’s unique career journey from professional mascot to selling NYC Garbage, making commercials with Muhammad Ali, tapping into the world’s elf fetish with ElfYourself.com, selling paintings of things he wanted for the price of the real thing, raising money for UNICEF with a $300,000 t-shirt, and now as an accidental entrepreneur.
