Captivating Quotes from this Episode:
9:10 [I]take more of a long form piece of content, and then to be able to break that down into social media captions and an email for the week. And if you have a podcast, another thing to make sure is like, there’s ways that can help in providing strategy.
16:16 I think a lot of creatives would say, Oh, no, I just need maximum flexibility. But I think a lot of times when you have structure in place, that’s when the anxiety reduces, and then you’re able to step in, because you know, everything’s taken care of and, and that’s kind of the peace of mind, I think I like to offer my clients in that way. So that’s really powerful.
28:42 I think even if you are just getting started, and like you’re in your Instagram, and you’re like, oh my gosh, dream client alert, like, I would love to work with this person, like, cold pitch them because your enthusiasm is so flattering. And I have gotten a couple clients just because they’re like, you’re like way too excited about, you know, and they want to give you a shot just because that’s what they want on their team. They don’t want someone who has meth about what they’re creating and the impact that they’re having on their people.
30:08- Creating content buckets, and identifying- what are all the ways that I show up to serve my audience. And again, this can be like, super simple in terms of a Google Doc or a note on your phone. But identifying all those things like what are you the absolute expert at? You also want to be able to just open that note or that Google Doc and keep adding to it, even if it’s just like a little notes, just so that you can bring that document up and break it down for someone have, these are all the ways I want to show up whether or not you’ve actually been doing that or not, these are all the ways that I want to show it because you want to keep your your content fresh. And the more that you can cycle through all of those buckets and continue adding to them, then that just prevents you from getting to burnout mode, and allows you to always be providing that person that you’re bringing on your team to just have a source to pull from at all times
