Evan La Ruffa: Building a Brand by Being Who You Are— Wherever You Are (#10)


Every once in a while we bump into people who somehow earn a great living, and build a great life— simply by being themselves.

If life is a journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and ultimately leveraging our power of  Being Ourselves… These people don’t waste too much time in discovery and acceptance, because they have too much impact to create by virtue of their Being.

My friend Evan La Ruffa is one of these people. If the guy isn’t installing the craziest, hippest, and most cutting-edge art for corporate spaces, he is evangelizing the value of art to executive leaders of brands like Adidas.

Evan La Ruffa is the founder of I Paint My Mind, an organization that transforms people and spaces by connecting artists, businesses, and communities through art.

He currently serves as the Executive Director and Leader Curator.

Evan has one of those vibes you can feel a block away before you get there. He’s covered in tats, rocks some heavy gauge ear-wear, and yet he’s so genuinely joyful that he can hang with anyone.

  • If you’re looking for creative ways to monetize your passion, while giving back to a greater cause, you’ll want to hear this.
  • This conversation is also packed with ways to engage corporate partners and clients.
  • We’ll cover in detail how he built an organization around his passion, and what he’s learned from speaking to so many corporate buyers over the years.
  • We start with the lessons he took from his parents that gave him Permission to Glow in The Dark.
