Jeremy Slate’s journey has taken him through a multitude of failures, questions, and experiences to shape him into the person he has become today. He currently runs GetFeatured.Media and Slate Media Productions — In late 2015, Jeremy launched the Create Your Own Life Podcast, which looks to give you the steps and skills that successful entrepreneurs, business people, and artists have applied to create a life on their own terms.


Q: What are some challenges you faced when developing your venture?

Finding the right business partner to cover my weaknesses. Self awareness was something took a while for me to learn. It was also difficult to learn that should be doing everything because my time is more valuable than being stuck in minute details.

Q: Was there any point when you thought it was over? That you were going to fail?

I got started in 2013 in network marketing and though I don’t do it anymore it was what allowed me to think outside the box. I can remember when I finally came to the conclusion that it was over it was a difficult experience for me because I burned so many bridges that I was continuing to do it just to make myself right even when I knew I was wrong; I could admit defeat when it turned out that it was what would create the future.


Q: As an entrepreneur how important has flexibility been in developing your venture?

Very much so I’m not exactly a social butterfly I’ve had to learn to step out of my comfort zone because not being flexible is the kiss of death. It’s those events where I have tried to do more and step outside that I actually had to grow


Q: What was was your spark, where did it come from?

It came from passion had I not decided to do a podcast to just offer value with no thoughts of monetary return it would not have worked out. I had to pull my attention off of money and put it on purpose.

4. What are your non-work habits that help you with your work-life balance?

I find I make the time to really date my wife; it’s something many stop doing once they get married. You have to continually create a relationship or its over. Put time for her in your schedule like it’s an appointment.

5. What is your best tip for entrepreneurs?

Know who the people around you are, they may be nice to your face while driving a knife into your back. A book called the Science of Survival, by L. Ron Hubbard was a life changer for me it taught me how to read people.
