You’ve heard his music, even if you think you haven’t. Timothy Palmer has been Tryin‘ to help you us all navigate the journey of the creative entrepreneur and musician for years. His song (by that same name, Tryin’) is the theme song to the DIY Artist Route Podcast, a brilliant track found on the critically acclaimed Half Boy EP.
On top of being a brilliant songwriter, he’s also one of my closest friends. Every time we have a conversation, he shares so much incredible wisdom and philosophy that I wish I had been recording it to share with you.
This is the fulfillment of that dream for us to talk openly about our stories, and the pursuit you share with us in taking our creative work to new levels of success.
Tim is an avid reader, which you hear in his quotations of great writers, musicians and sages in this conversation. It’s his uncanny ability to relate story with philosophy and real life perspective that make him such an incredible leader and speaker.
This is the first in a two-part episode where we dive deep into the philosophy of being human, in particular creative people who want to make a difference in the world. I know that’s your mission and passion, otherwise you wouldn’t be here.
In the interest of time, I’ve split our conversation up into two parts. This first portion serves as both an introduction to him and his work, as well as lay a solid foundation for the role that philosophy plays in how each of us see ourselves, our role in the world, and the work that we do individually and collectively. The collective part is where you join in too. And I invite you to join into the discussion we have here.
Connect with him to share your perspectives, stories, and ask questions:
As always, I invite you to join me in this conversation too. What thoughts and feelings do you have about what we discussed here? What curiosity thread are you unwinding as you listen to us talk?
Share your thoughts and feelings! I want to know what ideas you have, as well as any struggles you’re working to overcome. If you’re feeling stuck, or if these perspectives that we talk about has your mind racing, let’s talk about it. I want to hear from you.
