YBB026: Alex Echols on Hollywood, Big Breaks, and Best-Sellers

Gwen Elliot, March 9, 2016

Your Big Break Podcast welcomes Best-Selling Author, Speaker and Mentor for Millennial Entrepreneurs, Alex Echols!

I had the privilege of meeting Alex in perhaps the coolest place in the gahdamn world. We met in Bali at an amazing event called Awesomenessfest (now Afest) a few years ago. We’ve kept in touch and I’ve watched some of the incredible big break moments he’s been creating over the years. On today’s episode we talk about how he left Hollywood (working on entertainment brands like Harry Potter, and The Dark Knight) to starting his own business, writing a kick-ass book and teaching millennials how to do the same. He also makes a radical declaration around the 27:15 mark about becoming a HayHouse author! I hope you love learning from Alex!



In this episode you’ll learn:

Alex shares what a “big break” means to him.

Alex shares how he was inspired by Walt Disney and starting his professional career in Hollywood.
