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!

#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?

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.

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 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?

#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.

Hello Everyone, I finally made the shift from "I want to upload a video to youtube" to "How can I improve my next one?" @Andrew Kirby convinced me almost a year ago, that I need to share the lessons I've learned with the world . But I was too scared to put myself out there. Then, when I decided to finally do it, it was too complicated from a technical point of view and I learned a lot about filming and editing. After hitting the "publish" button yesterday, all my fears and anxieties went away and I felt relieved. I know it's not the best video and it's painful for me to even watch it 😅 but I'm proud of myself that I did this 😊 I didn't share it with my family or my friends .. I wanted to only share it with a community like you who would understand what's it like to overcome all these mental and technical obstacles. So Kindly take a look and tell me honestly what you think 😇 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQlrE5PbrNs&t=81s Obai

Hello there, just wanted to share a quick thought only few people seem to be aware of. If you are creating content via text, especially long form, beware of hyperlinks in your text. Because as proven by this amazing study and this inspiring quote by Elon Musk, hyperlinks lower the comprehension of the text. Why? Because every link, is a micro-decision a reader hast o make. Should I click or read on? And this destroys the reading flow and ultimately lowers comprehension. So if you want your texts to be read and understood, beware of hyperlinks. Probably it's best to put links at the very end of a text, where they belong, if readers want to continue exploring the subject. Like here: Amazing study about reading comprehension Inspiring Quote about reading by Elon Musk Just wanted to send this out to all you content creators, since there seems to be little awareness about this problem. Best, Carlos

hey guys, so I need some help and thought this will be a great place to ask it, I have low energy, and I just don't understand why, because logically it feels like I do everything right: - I have 8-9 hours of sleep every day - I go to the gym 3x a week for one hour - I go cycling in nature for 30 minutes every day - I try to eat healthy (no seed oil, sugars, or processed food) - my room has a lot of windows, so I got sunlight in the morning - I don't use any electronics 1 hour before bed and have blue light blockers here is what my day looks like: I wake up at 7 am, sit down in front of my computer work till 12, then I eat my first meal, (so I intermittent fast 16:8) after it I go back and work. at 2 pm I go to the gym, at 3 pm I go cycling and after it, I usually do some work outside for an hour, then I'm in front of my computer till 9 pm, I turn it off and go to sleep at 10 pm I'm a noob when it comes to high performance and energy optimization, but if anyone has solved this problem, and has some expertise in this field, I would love to hear your advice these are my ideas on why I have low energy: - I spend too much time in front of my computer - I only eat 2 meals a day (btw I usually feel this tiredness afternoon) - maybe not enough water? - lack of supplements? - my diet is not good enough, thinking of changing to a carnivore fruit diet also, I don't drink coffee only some green tea sometimes and I meditate, journal, and read before bed, Idk if this helps

After a long time of excuses, I finally published my first video on my new channel! (I posted a few random videos on YouTube years ago but it was just to host the videos for my website). I think I stalled for so long because I wanted doing video and YouTube something I could be passionate about but feared that once I got back into it I’d realize I didn’t love it. 2 weeks ago when I recorded, edited, and published this it was the most fulfilling week I had in many years. I LOVED it! I’m kinda obsessed now with making better videos Thanks to @Andrew Kirby and everyone else in here for being my inspiration behind the scenes. https://youtu.be/TGv2yIJ1BwI

Hi there, I have so many books ready to be read, all spanning different topics. My Tsundoku. Recently I made the decision to lay them all out and organise them by subject and began creating what is essentially a syllabus of the next subjects to tackle based on the skills they'd help develop. I'm attempting to organise them by the highest leverage skills, the things that have the most impactful knock on effect. The ones that took priority for me were: - Decision making - Learning more efficiently - Communication skills I wanted to put this question out to the community. What skills do you consider to be highest leverage skills that you'd prioritise and why?
