The Power of Podcasts
People don't realize the power of podcasts. Many billions of people don't even have the ability to tune in yet. And if you have a product, a service, a voice, or a message, the best medium on the planet. Not Forbes, not the Wall Street Journal, not the New York Times of which I have been front page on all of those. It's getting on someone's podcast. Again, the person to hear your message in your voice in your passion. podcasts are the best medium, there isn't a moment. And they've already just started.
What’s Your Point?
When you get on the podcast, you need to get to the point. No one cares how much money you made. They care about how you can pass that information over to help them become more powerful, impactful, affluent, whatever the point is. So you have to always think about what's the point for the listener listening to you.
The Value of Showing Up
If you want to accomplish something in our world, you have to effectively position yourself alongside successful people. You've got to show up.
However, today, there are lots of conversations going on. And rather than having them, we avoid those for fear of looking stupid. So we don't converse and we make up these brands showing who we are supposed to be. But all we're doing is confusing the end-user looking at us. Branding today is a myth. Because what really branding means is what people say about you when you've left the room.
