The media industry is changing at an unbelievable speed. It’s time to prepare for disruption.

Are you concerned that Artificial Intelligence will eliminate your job?

The thing that will separate those from success and those who will be passed over or disrupted by AI, will be a person's ability to always adjust and create a brand that is seen as valuable. Businesses and people will always see value in aligning themselves with others who bring quality to the project.

about me

Navigate the industry with a Media insider

I'm Neil and I wanted to work in the media business since I was a young kid, or at least that's what I thought.

It turned out, what I really wanted was to have a lifestyle that allowed for freedom and creativity. I wanted to be able able to travel the world on a whim and create entertaining and inspiring content. It didn't happen easily, quickly or without significant challenges and soul searching.

Everything great requires work to achieve it and to keep it. I want to see others make it to the top of their fields and I will share the secrets that led to my success.
