Two nights ago I helped host a meetup for ambitious professionals who want to MASTER their psychology…
I learned two things:
- Don’t pat a lady’s stomach and say “Omg, how many weeks?” no matter HOW sure you are she’s pregnant.
- It doesn’t matter if you earn $10K a year or $1,000,000 a year, psychology is the biggest factor limiting your success.
You can have nothing and feel amazing.
You can have everything and feel like shit.
What I’ve been obsessed with the past couple years is getting people who are already performing well, to perform at their PEAK — even when they don’t feel like it.
And to improve other’s lives while they do so.
Here’s an example of how NOT to improve someone’s life.
My favorite part is “You are on my list.” Implying he already has a list.
Luckily with our festival I know what it’s like to be ignored, so I read and respond to EVERY email.
But most of the contacts you’ll meet at pitch events, networking events, funding events, etc. seem like they’re interested in you — and then THEY DON’T RESPOND WHEN YOU EMAIL.
One of our student’s, Jessica, asks about managing that thin line between saying “Hey… you there?” and being annoying.
Could be an investor… Could be a date!
Hit reply. Love ya.

You know how Eminem is the Rap God? Well up North there in Canada, Curt's referred to as Toronto's "Film God." Studying mathematics and physics, his switch to filmmaking has given him a unique eye where he sees how things are traditionally done in the industry and goes "Um.. WTF." With a focus on results, and not just "festivals", Curt has taken cues from the startup world as well as deep psychology to help other independent filmmakers get connected, get funded, and make money with their films.
