“The expression of your soul’s calling may take many forms throughout the creation of your body of work.”

Srinivas Rao has interviewed roughly 500 people since he started podcasting in 2010. He's now the CEO of Unmistakable Media and the host of the Unmistakable Creative Podcast, a place where he's interviewed ex-cons, happiness researchers, world famous cartoonists and entrepreneurs. In 2013, he self published The Art of Being Unmistakable which became a Wall Street Journal and Amazon Bestseller.

In my interview with Srini we explore a variety of topics, but we often come back to exploring the expression of your soul's calling. We discuss how a certain level of success can lead you to lose touch with your original mission and actually be damaging, and how you can come back from these low points.

"Your willingness to NOT follow someone else's instructions to the letter is where you start to find those edges that actually give you your ability to find what makes you unmistakable."

We talk about success, alignment, and transformation. How going down the wrong path—sometimes brought about by the intoxicating allure of success—can be so damaging. And how you can get back to your original purpose, even if you've lost your way. Why a carefree can-do attitude often leads to big things—breaking out—and why it's so important to sustain that momentum through intention and dedication to the craft.

We talk about fear, anxiety, and how sometimes true change—getting back to the essence of what is in your heart—only comes about through struggle. And how his best-selling book, The Art of Being Unmistakable, led to an interview with Glenn Beck, and what that meant for Srini both personally and professionally.

Some questions I ask:

  • What does it mean exactly to create soul food instead of junk food?
  • How do you find and prepare for guests? And who does post production for your podcast?
  • Where are you on the mechanics of building an online presence?
  • How did your relationship with Glenn Beck come about?
  • What IS being unmistakable?

You’ll also learn:

  • Why you should make a list of all the things you love and just start doing them. 
  • Why you need to check yourself constantly and reevaluate WHY you are doing "it."
  • Why spinning your wheels—that period of pain and frustration—is necessary for success.
  • And why you should never start out with mechanics in mind, but instead focus on your craft.
