Survivorman Les Stroud: Produce the Creative Work & Life You Want [Jan 30, 11am PST]


UPDATE: The LIVE broadcast is January 30th – 11am SEA time (2pm NYC -19:00 London) – mark your calendars and flip your dial to

Les Stroud combined his love of the outdoors as a professional survival instructor with a passion for film and photography and created a new genre of television with the highest ratings in the history of both OLN Canada, the Science Channel US, and among the most popular shows ever on Discovery Channel US. But more importantly he created the life he wanted to live through his own creativity. As the only producer in the history of television to produce an internationally broadcast series entirely written, filmed and hosted alone, Les is a seriously accomplished creative. And obviously, when he is alone in the wilderness, life hangs in the balance of good decision making. One wrong decision can make the difference between living and dying. The consequences are well-known to Les, who has spent a lifetime surviving everywhere from the Amazon jungles to the vast Arctic tundra. But what about the decisions he has made as a creative? What decisions did have to make to pursue his dreams and share his vision? Tune in to find out.

    Les is The Man, and I agree, it’ll be amazing to have him on Creative Live. I am really look forward to it.

    During the episodes, he talks a little about how hard it is dealing with all the gear, but I hope he talks a little more in depth about how he protects it all, etc, on CL. And how he reviews it in the field (for example, on one episode, he knew he had an audio problem, but it was clear how he knew). But I’ll have my Twitter finger ready, too!

    I really enjoy this show. It’s amazing how when one can persevere. Such challenge. I really think you have to have a great passion for this. I myself got to experienced quite a similar 5 day. Trip in the Ottawa Vally from everything from Zip lining, canoeing 9 hour potash and white water rafting. But nothing like Less Stroud. Honestly to push myself that week in June . I was thinking of him and visualizing. His inspirational creative show and the exception. Thx.

    In order to properly reword comments, you need to be creative and even more creative. Convince the person that even though the article is overly bland, it’s still something they should have it visible on their blog.

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
