Investing In Result’s | Garbage In Is Garbage Out W/ Dave Swillum

June 28, 2022

E166:

 

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.

The Idea Is What Made It Good, Everything Else Was Just Extra W/ Dave Swillum

The Idea Is What Made It Good, Everything Else Was Just Extra W/ Dave Swillum

May 17, 2022

E161:

 

Short episode talking on creation and the initial idea as the most important. If you have something holding you back from releasing something think back to some of your favorite songs, vacations, and other memories. Was it that their production and set up was perfect that made them impactful to you and amazing? The best things are the things that exist and the best initial spark that’s captured so make sure you release it. In this episode we speak through the process and getting action behind it. 

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • The best ideas are the idea not the production 
  • Why am I hesitating ? 
  • No one actually knows what they are doing 
  • Does this matter to stop this from being released? 

 

Quotes

 

“Things are as good as the things that are made for how they are relative to the people of the time.” - Host Dave Swillum

Catching Lighting In A Bottle Ideas & Harvesting W/ Dave Swillum

May 10, 2022

E160:

 

As creatives or entrepreneurs we all get those “uh ha” moments in the worst places, those once in a lifetime ideas when we are driving, working out, or working that we can NEVER get back when we want to. Let’s talk about some ways we can catch them on the run, reduce friction to engage with them, and harvest them frequently to take action and consistency with our thoughts. On this episode we cover simple methods to capture different mediums on the run, systems to put them in to use, and habits to build them in to our routine so you never forget those killer ideas again!

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • Capturing ideas as they come in the moment
  • When and where do we get our best ideas?
  • Simple ways to capture
  • Don’t worry about perfect
  • Reduce friction
  • The solution for shower ideas
  • Harvesting ideas
  • Systems to bring these ideas into our schedule 
  • Action orientated, friction reducing habits

 

Quotes

 

“We’re not worried about how beautiful or perfect something is, perfection is the enemy of creation sometimes. It’s ok to have typos or have background noise. Just worry about capturing and how you can harvest after.” - Host Dave Swillum

May 3, 2022

E159:

No one want’s anyone to hate them or what they do but they should. On this episode we take a quick deep dive into why it’s important to create polarizing content, creative, and business so that you make a sound. You can’t speak to anyone so why would you try? There will be people that don’t like what you do out there and say so but that’s great! This shows who loves your stuff and means you are making enough noise and being individual enough to push some boundaries. Let’s talk about it. 

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • What positive hate looks like
  • Trolls
  • It’s ok for people to not like you or what you make
  • All new’s is good news
  • Finding your niche by removing what isn’t it

Discussion on ways I’ve cut down on consumption, researched where I’m consuming from, and being more forward on how it affects my day instead of letting it tell me how I should feel and think. Content is great! But we need to manage it and understand it’s intentions for us while we interact with. Being intentional is everything.
