129: Injured Equestrian turns Professional Booty Painter - Diane Portwood
My guest today is Diane Portwood.
She's a full time, self-taught artist living in South Florida with a Purple Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and a background in engineering and equestrian sports.
She's a very disciplined worker, and she's not afraid to joke about herself or other taboo subjects.
During this episode she shared her story of moving to Florida by herself to ride horses at the age of 16, how it led to two near death experiences, and eventually moving to Fort Lauderdale to pursue her full time career in art.
She quickly realized that she could get a lot of attention for her art on instagram, and grew an impressive audience who loved her unique mixture of thoughtful captions, captivating photography, and her sarcastic commentary on society.
We also talked a lot about social media and its impact on us, and the pros and cons of being recognized in the real world.
