The Entrepreneurial Pep Talk You Need To Hear w/ Steph Crowder

May 7, 2018

We may specialize in filmmaking, but we’re still entrepreneurs, and we struggle with all the same things that every other entrepreneur struggles with, too. Steph Crowder gives us tons of mic drops about some of those same struggles that she’s faced and how we can work through them.

Steph is Head of Member Success at, co-hosts the Fizzle podcast as well as her own podcast Courage + Clarity, and is also a business coach for people who are hungry for meaningful, independent work in their life.

Today, Steph talks with us about being present in the journey and appreciating the now, as well as dropping some truth bombs on imposter syndrome and how to get past it. She also talks about building community and gives us some very concrete, actionable tips on getting amazing interviews in our corporate and documentary films.
