Hi everyone, I would REALLY appreciate your input, I want to start my blog (or even YT channel) in Spanish with the idea of synthesizing information about philosophy, health, fitness, nutrition, productivity, and personal development. The problem is that this seems way too wide topic-wise to define my channel/blog, but Joe Rogan for example gets away with it, his format is good, and his guests are often experts. But I don't know if I will be able to talk about these topics with credibility (since I'm a programmer, not a fitness expert, or nutritionist, or MD, or even a very successful businessman). So my 2 questions are: How do I define the scope of my blog/YT channel? Should I restrict it? How should I make the information I synthesize more trustworthy? Just referencing sources works? Thank you in advance!

I am a beginner. I am entering a new game about which I know nothing. I do not yet know how to move in this game. I see many other people playing in this game now. This game has gone on for many years prior to my arrival. I am a new recruit arriving here for the first time. I see value to me in learning to navigate in this domain. There is much for me to learn: The basic terminology The basic rules The basic moves of action The basic strategies While I am learning these things, I may feel various negative reactions: Overwhelmed at how much there is to learn Insecure that I do not know what to do Inadequate that I lack the capacity to do this Frustrated and discouraged that my progress is so slow Angry that I have been given insufficient guidance Anxious that I will never perform up to the expectations on which my career depends Embarrassed that everyone could see my mistakes But these moods are part of being a beginner. It does not serve my goal and ambition to dwell in them. Instead, If I make a mistake, I will ask what lesson does this teach. If I make a discovery, I will celebrate my aha! Moment. If I feel alone, I will remember that I have many friends ready to help. If I am stuck, I will ask for help from my teachers. Over time, I will make fewer mistakes. I will gain confidence in my abilities. I will need less guidance from my teachers and friends. I will gain familiarity with the game. I will be able to have intelligent conversations with others in the game. I will not cause breakdowns for promises that I lack the competence to keep. I have an ambition to become competent, perhaps even proficient or expert in this game. But for now, I am a beginner. – By Peter J. Denning, Distinguished Professor, US Naval Academy

#Write privately as I look through this section, and read the comments, I look up and on my desk are at least 4 journaling books I’ve filled over the years. This process has helped me work through challenges, create new opportunities and set new and ambitious goals. The process often allows me to remind myself, I am whole and complete the way I am..or that things happen for me and not to me…it’s like that old trusted friend that allows you to just be you, and show up and talk about whatever you want or need to at the time. It’s that place to be honest, raw and vulnerable….

Ask yourself this question, and you'll stop getting distracted, and start focusing on fundamentals. Very valuable. Feel free to comment answers!

I stumbled on this article today, and I think it is relevant here: YouTube, the Great Radicalizer (New York Times, 2018) Basically, the theory is, that in hopes of getting the users hooked, the YouTube recommendation engine constantly ups the stakes. This means, recommended videos become more and more "radical" the longer the auto-play function runs. This goes across all topics. The recommendations become more and more "extreme": Eat healthy >> Vegetarian >> Vegan Jogging >> Marathon >> Ultra-Marathon Make Money >> Become a Millionaire >> Become a Billionaire Donald Trump >> Fascism >> Holocaust Deniers Joe Biden >> Socialism >> Communism You get the idea. Psychologically it makes total sense and I agree with the author, that this can't be healthy, considering that the world is consuming a collective of one billion hours on YouTube per day. What do you think about this radicalization theory?

Hello Synthesizers 👋 I've seen some of you asking questions regarding improving health - In particular focus, energy and sleep. If it helps, I have a plethora of content covering that stuff on my instagram and some on Youtube (Just started), so you can cut the BS and get straight to what works. Feel free to reach out if you're struggling with anything health related - Sleep, focus, fitness or energy. Not trying to sell anything. Just want to give value 🤝 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/alexdemirel/

I was talking to @Jeff Harrison the other day about how he was experimenting with AI to create content. If this really takes off a synthesisers role will only become more important as AIs could churn out content. But imagine someone were to create an AI that could synthesise. That would be powerful.

These things not just give one a leverage, but an ability to work remotely. Which is kinda crucial when the place you stay is not a viable option for some period of time.

These apply for hosting or being a guest. Some apply to both. ◾ Meet some amazing people (perhaps like-minded, but it's also good to talk to people with different viewpoints). Build relationships. Learn the lessons life taught them. You can get some great insights and share them with others. Win, win. Their audience may also then check you out. ◾ More depth. In this age of instant gratification it is refreshing to have longer conversations. Less width, more depth ◾ An opportunity to put yourself out there without selling anything. People get to know you more personally (mostly applies as a guest). ◾ Opportunity to chop pieces out and create short form content. Use that to drive more traffic to your brand/ podcast/ business. You can make content out of learning from and talking to other interesting people. Sounds good to me.

Changing who you Subscribe to is a very high leverage decision. It takes 2 minutes, and can benefit you for years to come. After all... You Become who you Consume. --- So, in order for us all to improve our information diet, let's share who we subscribe to on YouTube. Find out by clicking here. Or on the left side of YouTube on browser. Or at the bottom of YouTube mobile. Comment below. I'll go first.

Just posted my first "channel intro" that gives an overview of what sort of content I'm posting. Tried to basically do my take on being a synthesizer in my niche. Would love some feedback on it - my channel is still fairly new (3 months) so I know there are a bunch of things I'm still doing wrong

Hey 👋 I'm work on growing my German YouTube agency and now that I've won my first few customers, I want to hire my first employee. The employee should do things as an assistant and ideally also help out with the service itself. How do I find good employees, and what do I have to pay attention to? What would be your recommendation for me? Thank you for your help!

The All In podcast is a podcast with 4 billionaires. In one of their recent episodes they said: "In the future ALL Marketing and Advertising will be spent on Content Creation." They believe traditional business like McDonalds will fail. And be replaced by Creator led businesses, like MrBeast Burger. They also said: "In 20 years, 90% of business will be around personal brands." Crazy, right? And to remind you... These guys are billionaires. With jets, yachts, and wildly successful companies. More successful than Hormozi, Sam Ovens, Graham Stephan, or whichever other business guy you like. So when they say Content is the future, we should listen to them. And now that I think about it... Even Elon Musk, the richest man on earth, still believes creating content is a valuable use of his time. And just think about how valuable his time is. If what these guys are saying is true... This is the opportunity of our lifetime. And we're still the early adopters.

I want to thank @Owen Sheasby for having me as a guest on his show. I totally enjoyed sharing and discussing how things are evolving. Owen sets himself apart as an interviewer by truly listening and allowing the conversation to naturally flow to the next logical topic, versus feeling of hard turns by getting in the "next question." I look forward to him growing his brand and his reach. I am grateful and honored to have been a guest. Make sure to check out his show, you will not be disappointed.

I am hoping someone with experience in here can bring some clarity to this discussion. I have heard from some YouTubers to not share your YT videos on social media (ig, facebook) because it can lower your AVD because you have people who are just curious checking out your video quickly and then leaving. It could also cause you to gain subscribers who aren't your ideal viewer (again, confusing the algorithm). I have also heard from others that you should share your videos on ig stories and on other social accounts o drive traffic. Can @Andrew Kirby or anyone else in here shine some light on this?

Hey Everyone, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Stephen, I met Andrew in Sam Oven's mastermind group and we found we had a lot in common. I help people build content machines, automated systems to distribute content @ scale with a lean cost-effective team and without a lot of your time. Looking forward to learning from you all and contributing to your success.

This is it: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgds8r9nRu4ssnojV5v3GOQ/featured There are two Videos currently that will launch at a later time and more will come in that timeframe. More will launch before the others premiere - these are: Channel trailer, A Cover and maybe some others. It's embarassing but they will stay public. Nevertheless I have had some sense of accomplishement when I saw it posted even thought there needs to be so much work to do. Since im Germany its 8:30 a.m. for me so I have much time to do this today. The contents are for now will be Comedy, Covers and some other stuff. Thanks for all your encourgement and Critiques until now and upcoming. Best Wishes Marvin

#Creativity comes from what you consume - This is why I like being in this community and started attending the accountability calls. Even though I'm still not nearly where I want to be and I have setbacks, I think it is a gift to be here and learn from all of you and the sources you provide and synthesize. You provide the Soil for me to thrive in my barren lands so that I may one day bring out seeds to flourish in the Gardens I've created.

So, the mission of my YouTube channel is getting more and more in focus in my brain, but I've felt the need to try to do a better job of articulating it, so this is my first attempt at posting a 'Mission Statement" of sorts. I already realize that it's a muddled, jumbled, incoherent mess, but I also know that if I waited for it to be good before posting, I'd never post anything. My current thought is, get this out there, then try to make a bunch of quick synthesizer hits in rapid succession, and then come back to this idea and try to lock down the focus a little better. Help me, my Obi-Wan Kenobis! You're my only hopes! What works? What is the most obvious thing to improve next? Does this even make any sense whatsoever? Sigh. Imposter syndrome, here I come. But, still. I'm feeling that by video number 100 or so, I'm probably going to start producing something compelling. Before I can get to that, however, I gotta produce videos 1 through 99. Thanks for your help! https://youtu.be/LNNidyV8LjM
