Mario Novoa & The LA Film School Part II

Mario Novoa & The LA Film School Part II

 ... and here is Part II of this spirited and intimate conversation with Filmmaker and LAFS Alumni Association Founder & President Mario Novoa. 

We go over the difficulty of breaking bad habits and "breaking up" with people in our lives who sap our energies and hold us down. 

Mario "grills" me until I give up the 7Cs - Clarity, Commitment, Consistency, Connection, Conviction, Contribution & Competence - and we take the scenic route to look deeper into Connection and how to bring value and Contribution to our audience and tribe before we ask for anything in return. 

We answer some questions and close out on a "high note."

Check it out.
