The listener by the ID of tim_oliphant said, “Listening to Joe’s podcast motivated me to quit my job and become self-employed. I’ve drawn since I was a kid, graduated from college with an art degree, but a few years later I found myself no longer pursuing art and stuck working a miserable home improvement job – mostly painting houses…”

He further added, “Joe’s many rants about hard work, drive, discipline, pushing through creative resistance, being introspective, putting in the work, and paving your own path have been super motivating to me.”

“This Joe & Elon drawing will always be special to me, most notably because it’s the first of several times Rogan shared my art. He’s given my work exposure unlike anything else which has helped ME believe in my art…”

The fan mentioned how his life changed, and he received messages of encouragement once Rogan shared his work. He pointed out in the post that at this point; he was 1 year into self-employment as a residential painter. Even though his business was growing, it was less fulfilling.

The Space-X founder has been trending ever since he coughed up $44 billion for Twitter. He has been a firm believer in free speech and will look to implement this idea on the micro-blogging site. It thrilled Joe Rogan to learn about Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter as he too believes in the idea of free speech.
