About Josh Cary: Our Founder & CEO
Before Josh Cary became the founder of Cary Studios, co-founder of PodMAX and host of The Hidden Entrepreneur Show, and before he became a successful coach, speaker, digital media and creative consult, entrepreneur…
He was in hiding.
No, not literally. But Josh would describe it as hiding from who he truly was, trying to live with a mask on to gain the approval of everyone around him. He remembers pushing down his skills, desires, and interests, conforming to what he thought everyone else expected from him.
At 19, Josh changed his name and entered into a career as a professional actor and filmmaker for 15 years. Despite the applause and accolades working in the industry, the feelings of anxiety, fear, and insecurities never went away.
It wasn’t until the arrival of his two adoring children (Danica, born 2013, and Harrison, born 2015) when Josh was in his early 40s that he had the stark realization: he was the child in the group and he was the one who had growing up to do.
It was then and there that he drew the line in the sand and decided to confront the fear and step up into his full potential and live as who he was always capable of being. He started to step out of a fear mindset by unmasking himself and embracing life. Josh credits his children as the catalyst to step into his full calling, four decades in the making.
Today, Josh wears a few strategic hats. He is also the co-founder of PodMAX, an events company that caters to those who have a meaningful message to share.
Further, Josh is an accomplished podcast host of his own show, The Hidden Entrepreneur Show, with over 225 published episodes, and he has appeared as a guest on over 100 other podcast episodes. He is a business coach to leaders and executive professionals who want to harness the power of podcasting to share their message and expertise.
As a consultant, Josh takes a people-first approach. Just like he finally stepped into his own authenticity after decades of hiding, he helps clients “unmask” themselves by digging into important and challenging questions. Guiding his clients through a self-discovery process, he helps them find their voice, their message, and the channels that can connect them to the world.
