April 16, 2024
To this day, the most downloaded episode of the podcast is episode #45 with Jeff Madoff. Jeff is an incredible human who has also had an inspiring career… some highlights include: - Starting off as a fashion designer, being chosen as one of the top 10 designers in the U.S. and having 110 employees and two factories at age 22… - Switching careers to film and video production — creating award winning commercials and documentaries for companies like Ralph Lauren, Victoria’s Secret, and Tiffany - Authoring Creative Careers: Making a Living With Your Ideas based on the class he developed and teaches at Parsons School of Design, in NYC. - Most recently, Jeff became a playwright and theater producer. His play “Personality: The Lloyd Price Musical”, is based on the life of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend Lloyd Price Anywho… Since our recording in 2021, Jeff has become a dear friend and mentor (Leah and I saw his play when it came to Chicago!). After one of our more recent catch ups, Jeff introduced me to his son, Jake, who is ranked in the top 1% of growth marketers, having worked with 100+ brands, and manages anywhere from $5K/mo - $2M/mo in monthly ad spend. Jake and I had a great conversation, and it sparked an idea: As many of you know, I became a dad in November 2023 and I have been thinking a lot about “entrepreneurial dadding”. Being an entrepreneur is one thing… Being a present and loving dad AND an entrepreneur is a WHOLE other thing… It was clear in knowing Jeff and meeting Jake that they have a great relationship, and have BOTH built incredible careers out of what they love. And thus a question formed: What if I interviewed them together to talk about co-creating a loving entrepreneurial family… and also how to grow in your own entrepreneurial career while inspiring your kids to pursue their own passions? So, if you haven’t guessed already… they loved the idea, and THAT is what we discussed on today’s episode! If you’re someone who’s passionate about raising a loving family AND pursuing your passions, this is an episode you won’t want to miss 🙂 To learn more about Jeff and Jake, visit
