Erik Wahl is a performance artist who’s famous for his mesmerizing on-stage presentations which incapsulate art and speech. As an internationally recognized graffiti artist, and a #1 best selling business author, Erik redefines the term “keynote speaker.” Pulling from his history as both a business strategist and an artist, he has grown to become one of the most sought-after speakers available today. He’s the author of “Unthink” and his newest book “The Spark and the Grind- Ignite the Power of Disciplined Creativity”. Erik faced a series of life changing events including losing his job and all of his money which allowed him to rediscover his inner creative and become one of the most impactful speakers today!
In this episode Erik discusses the importance of putting himself in the right mental and physical state each day. Wahl opens up about the difficulties of losing everything and how he bounced back to become even more successful. Not having been involved with art until after 30, Erik divulges the process of becoming one of the most sought after performance artists! We discuss how children’s creativity is being held back by the education system and what parents can do to inspire their children. Erik brings so much authenticity to this episode and if you want a real life comeback story, this is the episode for you!
