In this episode of the DREAM. THINK. DO. podcast, Mitch talks with Sam Griffin, Executive Director of Creative Services for Garden & Gun Magazine. Plus, over his career he’s worked with brands such as Cosmopolitan, New York Fashion Week, Oprah Magazine, Town and Country. Sam had to push through fear to achieve numerous dream jobs. In this interview we talk about how he did it.
What are you most afraid of?
Public speaking? (That’s a BIG one!)
Fear of failing?
Maybe your fears are so deep… you’re not even sure what they are. BUT you know they’re holding you back.
Some of us through circumstances have legitimate fears, but many of us don’t have ANY good or logical reason for our fears. My guest today, Sam Griffin, understands that all too well.
Plagued by fears since childhood, he later moved to New York City where for 13 years, he led Harper’s Bazaar, Bon Appétit and House & Garden Magazine. Then he spent 2 years running his own consulting firm and working with brands, such as Cosmopolitan, New York Fashion Week, Oprah Magazine, and Town & Country Magazine.
