CIP 012: James Scully on Portfolio Careers

In this episode of The Creative Introvert podcast I interview James Scully.

James Scully

James Scully is a native Brooklynite, a total Renaissance man, and founder of the Wallbreakers.

More than a blog, the Wallbreakers is a mission to help us discover how to live a life doing the things we’re most passionate about.

We discuss:

  • The best burgers in NYC
  • The Golden Age of Radio
  • Having a ‘portfolio career’
  • Working a fulltime job and pursuing a side-gig
  • Are smartphones killing TV?
  • The problem with our education system

Fancy taking a FREE 5-day mini-course to start creating with confidence?


I’ve worked my TAIL off trying to perfect this concise 5-day online course into something that is 100% actionable, tailored to creatives who struggle with lack of confidence around creating new work, getting stuff finished and showing it to the world.



You can leave a rating and review on iTunes (here’s how to do that) and I will be as happy as a clam on crack (or sob into my pillow depending on what you write.)
