🚫 I need fancy equipment to start producing content 🚫

No. You don't.

πŸ“Ή You don't need a fancy camera or lights to start a youtube channel.
πŸŽ™ You don't need an amazing microphone or studio to start a podcast.
πŸ’» You don't need the best computer to build something amazing.

In fact, I would argue it's the exact opposite.

⬇️ Start small.
πŸ“± Record your video or podcast on your phone.
✏️ Practice making content.
πŸ’₯ Learn what you're passionate about.
πŸ™Œ Provide value.

You can always upgrade the equipment or quality later.

Waiting for the best equipment is really just an excuse. It's a way to procrastinate the creative process.

Don't do it.

Do you want to change your behavior? Change your identity.

Do you want to change your behavior? Change your identity.

In a recent Self Improvement Daily episode, Brian Ford talked with Jim Fortinabout the power of identity. (A powerful podcast episode. Link in the comments)

A non smoker isn’t even tempted if someone asks them to smoke. Why? Because it’s part of their identity.

How many times have you heard β€œI don’t smoke.”

They don’t even have to decide because they identify as a non smoker.

πŸ€” What behaviors do you want to get rid of or create?

⭐️ Now decide what identity you need to adopt to become who you want to be.

An identity that has meant a lot to me is my identity as a child of God.

β€œThe Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.” - Romans 8:16-17

Think about it. You are a literal son or daughter of the most powerful being. You are his heir. You are important. You have an infinite potential.

Don’t ever forget it.

Here’s a link to a music video that my little brother did. It has a powerful message. And my little family is in it.

Enjoy!

Why do you post content

🧐 Why do you post content on LinkedIn (or why don't you?)

I've been thinking about this question a lot lately, and here are some of my reasons:
πŸ’¬ It gives me an opportunity to share my thoughts.
πŸ“ˆ It helps me grow my network and meet new people.
πŸ™Œ It spreads awareness of my personal and business brands.
😳 I feel like I should (hey, I'm trying to be honest here, and it feels like everyone is saying you have to post consistently)

Why do (or don't) you post on LinkedIn? πŸ‘‡πŸ»

Can you ever take a break in business?

Can you ever take a break in business?

When you're a business owner, it's easy to get overwhelmed and have your business take over your life... but wait, didn't you get into business to be free? I know I did.

If you want to have freedom AND a business:

- CREATE SYSTEMS.

By creating systems, you allow yourself to be more productive and get more done quicker. You also make it possible to get help and outsource tasks when needed.

Hope you all get a quick break this weekend. Take care!
