043. Behind the Curtain with Yannick Bisson



Welcome to the Without Losing Your Cool podcast, where we explore how to navigate the often tumultuous waters life can throw at us. 

In this episode, I have the distinct pleasure of sitting down with my husband, Yannick Bisson, a Canadian actor, and producer who has been in the entertainment industry for over 30 years. 

And while Yannick has been on the podcast before, this one is unlike any interview you’ve heard from him. We talk about the complexities of money and happiness and how he deals with his darkest fears around failure. 

Does he tap into his emotions? How does he cope with the ups and downs of life and the showbiz industry? He gives us an honest and true look at the behind the scenes and tells us if he still finds joy in his job. 

In this interview, Yannick reflects on his childhood and the positives or negatives of how he was raised. He shares what he would change about his childhood and gives an inside look at what auditions were like for him early on in his career.

How do we find happiness with more ease? Yannick shares his perspective on this, as well as the one misgiving he has with showbiz. 

This is an episode filled with wisdom, insight, and advice from someone who has been in the entertainment industry for over three decades.
