Coming up is an interview I did back in September 2014 which was the end of my first year in business. You will hear me on the Artpreneur Now podcast where I share how I was editing podcast on a train to my full time job, how joining a mastermind and hiring a business coach led me to leaving that job and a whole crap more.

Show Notes

Steve P Young: How to Create a Life of Mobile Apps and Podcasting

One of the biggest influences behind the start of The Artrepreneur Now podcast, Steve P Young is an app developer, an entrepreneur, a marketer, a father, and a baller. While commuting on the train to his full time job, Steve started his journey editing podcasts with 1 hand and holding the laptop with the other. From growth hacking to the production of his first solo app, his story is one of the most inspiring in existence. Joining a Mastermind and hiring a business coach was the turning point of him leaving his corporate job, and he is now a full time hustler (the good kind.)

Here are the highlights of my conversation with Steve:

  • The craziest thing and the most eye-opening experience which happened to him so far (10:55)
  • How to spike your downloads through tapping on email list and other impactful methods on how he grew his audience (12:55)
  • Starting with something simple and small and all the best lessons he learned from his guests (15:30)
  • The things he had done to get back some of his free time such as getting help through outsourcing and the use of Auphonic (17:40)
  • How he separates his time between podcasts, apps and other tasks (21:00).

Creative Influences

One hour to create something, with anyone…

  • “I would spend an hour with Steve Jobs and present an idea over to him. I would love to get his feedback, and if it sucks, he can just rip it apart. “

To defeat Godzilla with his talents…

  • “I would distract him and give him an iPad with one of the most popular monkey-related game in the market. And while he is distracted, I will take him out.”


  • [Tweet “”Give yourself a limited amount of time and cram everything you can into it.” @stevepyoung”]
  • “Start your own platform — whether it is a podcast, a blog, etc. — so that people will know you for something. Whatever it is, be known for something.”
