Creating A Vision Board

Creating A Vision Board

August 9, 2022

E171:

 

In the past we’ve talked about how impactful and statistically proven it is that when we write things we intend to do they are more likely to happen on prior episodes. Why should your bucket list or long term visions be any different? A vision board is a great tool for anyone to just show visually what their intentions are to keep their eye the prize, stay top of mind, and help create regular action to move towards the things we want the most. On today’s episode I talk about what they are, how they can be made in a number of ways, and where I think the ideal location of one is to help you go after the things you want to tackle before you are out of this world! A 0 bs talk on a self help principle I find very helpful to have around my office and think to. 

 

Let us know what you think of this episode and hit me up @davewakeup on social or wakeupfromworkpodcast@gmail.com. 

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • What is a vision board? 
  • Why use one? 
  • What should be on a vision board?
  • Where should it be located? 
  • Writing down goals or putting them into a physical form make them more likely to succeed
  • Make it how YOU want
  • Ways to make a vision board visually appealing as a room piece and not noticeable right off the bat to others if you don’t want to share yet
  • Examples from my personal board

You Aren’t Posting Too Much W/ Dave Swillum

You Aren’t Posting Too Much W/ Dave Swillum

July 26, 2022

E169:

 

After hearing many creatives / business owners discuss feeling like they are over posting and from the other side not feeling or seeing that at all I wanted to talk about it. Anyone that isn’t an ego maniac feels a little bit of guilt plugging their own thing in general or like they are posting their content a little bit too much but I’ve almost never seen someone do that in real life. On today’s episode we talk briefly through promoting your creative or business with social and outreach without being “too much” and some of the ways to identify. Action verses results, public perception, and touch points for action. 

 

Let us know what you think of this episode and hit me up @davewakeup on social or wakeupfromworkpodcast@gmail.com. 

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • You aren’t posting too much
  • Social is a moving target
  • Perception v reality 
  • What they actually see v what it feels like for us
  • We are posting to something much more complicated than what it feels like to us
  • Average of 7 touch points with one person to get someone to take an action in something
  • Types of content and the changes in how it is perceived 
  • What actually bothers people and what doesn’t? 
  • Giving content breaks & planning strategically 

 

Quote’s

 

“ Almost no-one ever posts too much.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“ The amount that you are posting isn’t necessarily what people see.” - Host Dave Swillum

 

“ It’s way quitter in real life than it is in your head.” - Host Dave Swillum

Quote’s

As I’ve grown in business and creative over the years I’ve continually found value in finding mentors or education that make me get to a result faster. Today we talk about investing in  a result big to get big results. What stops us from doing it and what’s a scam? I talk on this short episode about ways to get to the result with other resources other than just money, how to gauge if it’s worth it, and how the roll coaster feels when you do with the reward at the end. If you want results you need to invest in them.
