In this episode, we're joined by Joey Dumont. During his career as an advertising executive in San Francisco, Joey led business development teams for nearly two decades. He also served as an Executive Producer on The Naked Brand documentary, a film that chronicled the needed evolution of consumer brands and their advertising agencies due to the advent of social technology and a shifting cultural landscape.
In 2017, Joey took a break from his career to write a book called, Joey Somebody, The Life and Times of a Recovering Douchebag. His book explores the very heavy topics of parental neglect, arrogance, insecurity, anxiety, and episodic depression through the lens of dark humor and self-deprecation. He also launched a podcast called, Laugh Your Cry Out, where he invites his weekly guests to share their own stories of a less than optimal childhood - where nothing is off-limits - and laughing at oneself is recommended.
In this episode, we explore:
- Meghan Markle
- Overthinking – remembering childlike curiosity
- mental health
- being a recovering douchebag
- the need to slow down
