Franklin Taggart: People Strategies for Creative Minds



Joanie interviews Franklin Taggart, a mysterious nerd with an interesting past.  Franklin is a musician, podcaster, and audience coach.  He’s an extremely creative nerd and, in this episode, he explains how creativity can actually make you unemployable–and how to get around that.

Highlights:

Q: Are you or are you not a nerd?  Or is it not a binary answer?

Franklin defines and expands the definition of “nerd.”

Q: What’s your story?

It was a long strange trip.  My employment history and my bank account both reflect a significant level of chaos.

Q: How do you communicate best?

With words.  Even though I score 100% introvert on the Myers-Briggs, I can talk about anything at the spur of the moment.

Q: How do you connect with your audience and help others connect with theirs?

Artists are usually really good at what they do, but marketing is a foreign language to them.

The biggest challenge for artists and some authors is being visible.  The first step is to find a level of visibility that is comfortable.  It may be a little bit of a stretch, but not diving into the deep end.  For examples, listen to the podcast.

Words of wisdom from Franklin:

“Failure is not trying.  Everything else is learning.”

“Taylor Swift is not a country artist.”

  1. I was intrigued by Franklin and what he has to offer for nerds and well, us non-nerds too! There are lots of us who are “business shy” and can use some help.
