    [BONUS] Resonance Revisited with Jay Acunzo on Unthinkable

    [BONUS] Resonance Revisited with Jay Acunzo on Unthinkable

    I recently started a mini-series of episodes on the show called Jay-Talking with my friend Jay Acunzo. Those episodes are intended to be a little more raw and really feel more like you are a fly on the wall listening to a conversation between the two of us.
    Well, Jay recently had me on HIS show, Unthinkable, to continue the Jay-Talking series.
    We are talking about one of his favorite topics, the idea of Resonance. As Jay likes to say, marketing isn't about who arrives, it’s about who stays.
    We chatted about Resonance and how he can talk about that topic in a way that resonates with guys like me who may NOT yet be focused as much as resonance as we are on reach or revenue.
    It’s a fun conversation, and so I’m going to share the episode in it’s entirety today on the feed.

    11 Lessons Learned in 2021

    11 Lessons Learned in 2021

    I think we can all agree that any year is a step up from the year that was 2020...but I have to say, 2021 was better than I could've imagined.
    I won't focus on my own results too much, but I made some big moves this year that have really paid off in a big way. First, I joined Pat Flynn and the SPI time when Unreal Collective was acquired.
    That was a scary decision to make, and it wasn't easy to make either! But it was absolutely the right call for a few reasons:

    I had the opportunity to lead the Community Experience team.

    It gave Unreal members the opportunity to join an even better membership (for free)

    I worked alongside an amazing team and saw how a creator business at scale operates.

    It allowed me to focus on the non-service-related aspects of my own content business.

    As a result, my overall business income increased nearly 50% this year. And while my 2020 income was nearly 70% service-based, less than 2% of my 2021 income was service-based.
    It's been an amazing year, and I feel so fortunate. The business is in a place now where I can truly be intentional about what I create, who I partner with, where I invest my energy, and more. And YOU have had a big part in that.
    But I want to highlight some of the other lessons I've learned this year that I think can serve you in your life as a creator too.

A helping hand of self belief

As I grow older I’ve realised that it truely is ones ability to believe in self that sets them apart from the pack. Ones ability to hold believe in what they do really does seem to be the key factor in achieving mastery and masters are the best leaders for us all. Jay Clouse you’ve done such an incredible job at bringing together creative guests sharing their invaluable, specifically discovered elements with us in such a flavourful, easy to absorb way! I now believe, stronger than ever in my very own ability to create meaningful, helpful, entertaining video content for all other people to grow from and enjoy 🥰 So thank you thank you Jay, thank you to your team and thank you to all your guests too 🙏

Favourite commute podcast

Absolutely love Creative Elements and it never fails to make my one hour commutes to work feel like time well-spent. Jay is an excellent, well-spoken host who interviews interesting, creative people who are always genuine and who always seem to have something of value to share with us. I can't wait for the episodes to come out fast enough.
