Who is Mars Dorian? He's a digital artist and storyteller. And he's created a name for himself with a unique illustrative style, stand-out writing, and an uber slang that's all his own. He's successfully created his own brand language.

In this episode Mars and I discuss how he found his calling, walk through his creative process, and talk about bringing balance to life and work.

Mars is now writing books and his artwork can be seen all over the online realm. His services range from creating book covers, viral slideshows, visual cartoon content marketing to share-worthy infographics and e-product branding. In his own words, he designs and works with go-getters who want to stand out by doing outstanding stuff.

His motto: When you’re not trying to fit in, you’re free to stand out. And standing out means Breaking Out. So, if you want to break out creatively you should check out what Mars has to say.

Some questions I ask:

  • Can you create an ideal business around multiple interests—not being a complete master or must you "niche down”?
  • How do you find ideal clients?
  • What does showing up mean to you?
  • Is the future of work about learning a variety of skills and combining them in interesting ways?
  • Can you create an ideal life and business?

You’ll also learn:

  • How a shift in focus altered his course for the better.
  • About his "social battery" and a networking secret that starts with Twitter.
  • Why you just need to ship it.
  • The creative habits that keep him on track.
  • How Mars eliminates physical and mental distractions to get things done.
