  1. This was incredible, Sean! I couldn't agree more. It's not enough to want fame and success. You have to really earn it and pursue it with all of your might. It takes ambition, curiosity, dedication, diligence, drive, endurance, perseverance, persistence, and luck all rolled into one.

    I always think of that old Greek saying, "Fortune favors the bold."

    Watching this video makes me want to keep going as an actor, artist, and businessman. Like you said, we're each a business. However successful we become is all up to us.

  2. Wonderful video! I like the beginning about work showing up as overalls. Please make more videos like this!

  3. this is GREAT stuff, Sean. I think the format is an excellent addition to your normal armory. More of this, please. Perfect complement to the more technical and practical fare for which you are already The Man. 😉

  4. This is brilliant
    Keep doing the work, if you love it will never seem like work or a job 💪🏻
