Click to Tweet: Benjamin Marra shares his journey on Comics Manifest podcast

 

There are few people who produce work as powerful as Ben. His stories are raw, violent, action packed, and sometimes a bit crazy, but they all have this energy that keeps you engaged and wanting more.

 

I’m so excited to bring you this interview with Ben, after reading his book Terror Assaulter O.M.W.A.T. I was really curious about how he curated his taste in art and story. But, what surprised me was just how insightful and purposeful Benjamin is.

 

During our conversation he talks all about his development as an artist, how he had an undying hunger to learn, and how he was CERTAIN at a young age, that art was the thing he wanted to pursue.

 

It’s an amazing conversation and full of insight, so grab a notebook and get ready to jot down some value bombs.

 

If you have trouble finding your work ethic and you want to know how you can become more focused on your projects, get excited for Episode 080 to learn what worked for Benjamin Marra!

Motivational Minute: Set A Goal!

 

  • Do you have a goal that you want to achieve?
  • Have you set a goal to achieve that goal?

 

Most people answer yes to the first question but no to the second question.

 

If that’s you I hope that this motivational minute will inspire you to take control of your dream and set a goal to achieve it.

 

I understand that everyone is different. What works best for me isn’t going to work best for you. But one thing I do know is that when you are searching for what works best for you, it’s beneficial to see what does work for someone else.

 

During this episode I talk all about goal setting, how setting goals has benefited me, and I also include clips from past interviews with Der-Shing Helmer and Tom Nguyen where they touch up on their process and how setting goals benefits them.

 

So give it a try. Stop saying someday I’ll create this thing, or this month I’ll do “insert activity here” more.

 

Set a FINISH LINE to what you want and get specific, This project will be finished on April 15th, I will draw everyday from 7pm-8pm no matter what.

 

It sounds intense but following your passions and manifesting your dreams IS INTENSE!

 

Thank you for listening to this quick motivational minute if you enjoyed it please share it with your network and I hope that this episode motivates you to make that thing you should do into something you decide to be committed to.

 

So go out there and continue MANIFESTING your DREAMS!
