Ep. 17 - The Process of Becoming
We introduce the five-step model that we use to create results for ourselves and our clients. Viewing the world through this lens has been life-changing for us and can also allow you to take ownership over creating the experience you want in every area of your life.Here's the secret, we always think that when our results change, THEN we'll feel happy or successful. But that's out of order. Circumstances don't create feelings. Our thoughts do. What do you imagine you would feel if you had the result you wanted? Why? When you give yourself permission to think those thoughts now and feel those feelings unconditionally, the result becomes inevitable.

Ep. 15 - How to Get Your Film Financed
How do you finance a film? We answer this question while emphasizing that the more important question to focus on is how to make a good film. The first step is to develop a story that is really meaningful to you and the people on your team. Once you've done that, we boil the process down to a simple formula. We share our own experiences and the insights we have gathered as we have followed this formula to finance our own projects. We discuss tips and common mistakes, including how to avoid being a creepy salesperson. For those who don't consider themselves business-minded, we want to show you how getting your film financed is part of the process of creation, refinement, and learning to communicate your vision. www.invisiblemansion.com/filmandfamily
