Happy Friday everyone!
All of us here at Amplify have been kicking some serious goals this week!
In fact our very own Master of Sound, Ryan Prestipino along with successful businessman and best-selling author, Andrew Griffiths, have just released ‘The Me Myth' audiobook on Audible.
And are you still looking for something to do from the 2nd-4th of November? Look no further! We still have 12 tickets remaining for We Are Podcast 2017! Buy yours now or suffer severe FOMO!!
Andrew defines The Me Myth as the limiting belief that the world revolves around me. In short chapters he gives advice on how to shift the focus away from me and start living a better life through simple actions like mastering empathy, giving generously, inspiring people and having fun.
The message is simple, but profound. And, most importantly, Andrew makes the journey fun! The Me Myth is a result of Andrew's observations as well as his own personal journey. His life has been filled with extraordinary hardships and obstacles, from an unusual childhood to near-death experiences, which he has not only overcome, but thrived on.
In Alex Blauensteiner's interview on Bond Appetit, he spoke about the importance of leaving a positive legacy.
The other day in the office Amber Hawken had a meeting with Ronsley. She turned around to me and asked “what do you aspire to be in life?” Without a pause I simply replied “something”. Amber then turned to Ronsley and said “see, the answer will always be vague no matter who you're asking,” and it got me thinking… What do I want to be? What are my goals and more importantly what kind of mark did I want to leave on the world or my industry?…
For those who are on their way to creating their legacy in the podcasting industry.
Or if you're hanging out for more golden podcasting tips you are in luck my friend!
Emma Franklin Bell was kind enough to jump on Should I Start a Podcast and share some of her best tips for getting the right people on your podcast. For those interested here is a taster from the article (you can thank me later):
“Don’t focus heavily on monetising your podcast. Instead, think of what value you can add, and have conversations that excite you, ones that you’d love to have even if no one was listening.”
Our Wordsmith, Colin Adams, reviewed the history and evolution of the emoji in this weeks team post Tuesday.
I have never shied away from using too many emoji's. ? ? ? ?? ? ? ?
In fact I think one of the happiest turning points in my texting was when the avocado emoji was released.
Who would have thought that emoji's could be so vital to boosting and animating conversation?
Of course memes are also currently saturating the social media scene, but that probably warrants a seperate blog post all together…
