Billy is every bit a creative… he’s an artist, musician, facilitator and entrepreneur. He’s also the namesake and only son of well-known pitchman Billy Mays (yeah, the Oxyclean guy).

Billy has been a dear friend of mine for over a decade and I’ve seen him face multiple tragedies and how he’s turned his grieving into not only art, but healing for himself and for others.

I’m delighted to bring you this conversation where we talk about grief and how multiple tragedies changed the course of his creativity.

Listen to the end of the episode to catch and share Billy'’s #TheUnpluggedCreative Challenge with the community!

When I initially set out to do this podcast, I knew it was important to make it accessible to everyone whether they had excellent hearing or not. I believe accessibility is important and that those who speak sign language simply speak a different language than we do. Truth be told, getting transcripts done and then editing them and preparing them for the show notes is just too much for me to take on on top of producing and editing this podcast. At least right now.

So I want to ask for your help.

If you’d like to contribute to making this podcast accessible to all, you can become a member through Patreon. The approximate cost for transcriptions (no editing, just transcribing) each month is around $150 for two episodes. With different membership levels I know we can collectively make this happen and bring these conversations to more than those of us who were blessed with good hearing.

If you’d like to contribute, check out the Patreon Page here.

Thank you!
