Podcasts Running Through My Mind

Running Through My Mind Podcast

I decided to jump in and launch a podcast this week. Over the last 6-12 months I’d been trying to recruit a few business associates, past project partners, even my spouse to commit to creating and co-hosting an ongoing podcast program, but I couldn’t get any takers.

But the real fireworks come EVERY day when you take advantage of your freedom to think independent thoughts and take independent actions. It’s be scary to be out there all alone. There […]

10 Personal Writing Tips

File Jun 30, 5 13 44 PM

One of my networking groups recently asked its members to share their best writing tips based on their personal experience, habits, and daily practice. I really love this idea because it wasn’t “best writing tips” it was “best PERSONAL writing tips” — waaaay more practical and waaay more original. You can’t just write the best […]

here-be-dragons

It can take an entire generation (or two) for an idea to die. Some ideas weren’t always “bad ideas”. Many times the beliefs related to how an idea came into being and was adopted by the masses were once valid. Fearing people from other tribes who looked different and had different cultures from your own tribe was probably […]

I was binge-listening to Jason (I wear Your Shirt) Zook’s new Action Army podcast and toward the end of episode 8 (I’d give you the exact timestamp, but then you might jump right to it rather than listening to the entire episode like you should) Jason mentions writing Seth Godin and sharing the idea for his “I Wear Your […]

Side Hustle Beanstorm

There are just a handful of podcasts that I listen to on a regular (daily or weekly) basis. The ones that get a little “ooh!” out of me when I see there is a new episode downloading to my favorite podcast app. They have great content, interesting guests with relatable stories to share, engaging hosts, and (perhaps most importantly) […]

5 Creativity and Marketing Lessons from David Bowie

bowie-bye02

David Bowie was more than a favorite musician to me. He was my creative shaman; a marketing mind reader who knew exactly what kind of audio atmosphere I required to produce some of my best work.
