Let’s be serious, everyone. There’s a lot of education and content out there. I mean, a lot. Sometimes it can be insanely overwhelming. And, sometimes, it really just turns into noise. As someone with a rather niche product and service, all of the content floating around can often times feel inaccessible, unrelated, and downright confusing. I can’t tell you, on the daily, how much time I have to spend consuming photography, wedding planner, or business coach related education in the hopes that I can pick out one golden nugget of advice! Luckily for you, my peeps, I’ve narrowed down my top five favorite podcasts (so far) that I consistently and gladly tune in to! Today is part one, so let’s get into it!
The Strategy Hour Podcast
Hosted by the two most fabulous and sassy ladies you’d ever want in your corner, Abagail Pumphrey and Emylee Williams of Think Creative Collective, this podcast is jam packed full of actionable strategy. I’m telling you, the title doesn’t lie! These boss babes are not only the real deal, but are incredibly open about and giving of tactical steps each listener can take to become the real deal themselves. Now, what may seem strange about me flocking to every episode this dynamic duo produces is the fact that they run a very successful online course and content generating business. That’s a very, very different offering from my own. But, their openness to divulging useful information makes up for the product and service difference. I’m talking “we’re going to break down the where and why of every cent we spent on our most recent launch” kind of useful information. As someone who is rather “new” to the creative industry, those kinds of tips and tricks are priceless. I could go on and on, but you should go check them out for yourselves!
My Favorite Strategy Hour Takeaway So Far
Though I can easily say I walk away from every episode with that golden nugget of useful information, I would still have to say that Episode 032: Resisting Trends & Missing Opportunities is one in which I revisit weekly. In the episode, Abagail and Emylee call creatives out on some of their crap, so to speak. Meaning, they tackle a common trend in the creative community to, actually, resist trends. One of those big rebellions that ultimately turns into an excuse is a resistance to blogging. In the episode, the two ladies break down exactly how long it took them consistently blogging five days a week before they began to notice a financial ROI. It was a long time! And so, they call many creatives out on how they simply don’t give something such as blogging the chance and time it deserves before calling it quits and claiming it simply doesn’t work for them. I very much resonated with this, and am actively working to tackle my mindset and give some strategies the time they deserve!
