Joining me for Episode #33 of “the My Favorite Mistake” podcast is Forrest Tuff, the founder and CEO of One Vision Productions, an award-winning, multimedia production company. He does so many things… he's also a professional speaker, business coach, and author.

Forrest is a creative person who is also business savvy (he calls himself a “filmpreneur”). He has 180+ movie credits that include documentaries, indie films, and a major motion picture with Twentieth Century Fox. He is the host of the Tuff Talk Show… and he was also a Division I basketball player.

Today, we talk about his “favorite mistake” of leaving a regular job (something others thought was a mistake). We talk about his views on the possibility of mistakes in making movies and taking three-point shots. We talk about his coaching through the SCORE program and how he defines servant leadership.

You can listen to or watch the episode below. A transcript also follows lower on this page.

"Honestly, entrepreneurs, most of them, won't admit there's safety in a paycheck."

"Oftentimes, if I find myself in a rut, if something's not flowing, I'll take a break from it and go somewhere else. I have to diversify what I'm doing."

"As a mentor or a coach, you have to find that out with each individual. You have to talk and find out what motivates them and how they get things done. It's not a cookie cutter process."
