How An Art School Dropout Made $8k In A Day

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. It’s a pleasure to have Errol in the studio with us. And in this episode, Chris sits down with Errol to discuss how a student of his was on the verge of dropping out, but once he changed the way she looked at her situation, everything changed. We’re also joined by Executive Producer and Founder of Crimson + Cognac, Sheima Hassanlou.

This video was an excerpt from a much longer conversation from our podcast. Listen to the entire podcast interview with Errol Gerson here 🎧:

Errol Gerson is the longest-running instructor at ArtCenter and for good reason. He’s been sharing his knowledge, passion, wit, and philosophy on sales, business and management to over 3000 students over the course of over four decades. He’s getting up there in age but hasn’t slowed down one bit. This is a treat to be able to sit at the feet of a master.

Errol Gerson also teaches our Managing Money Course 💵 . Learn more here:
