    It's about a mindset that you can do anything, anything you put your mind to.

    What are the different reasons why people go on podcasting.

    There's no harm in doing some interesting conversations and meeting some new people and providing some kind of entertainment or education for your audience.

    I was doing sales in designing the website. But I was probably kind of a bit of a jack of all trades and Master of None.

    I think podcasts are almost like an evolution of radio in a sense. But the difference really, between radio and podcast, is a podcast is something that you download, you can listen to it from the beginning to the end, and for radio you tune in if you listen to what's happening right now.

    I think the fact that these kinds of communication tools, zoom and your radio, podcasting, and video chat, and all these live streaming functionalities are available on a wide range of platforms just make the whole thing really accessible to everyone.

    Being a guest on someone else's podcast is a great way to go if you're not really ready to take the plunge and start your own podcast.

    I always had an interest in the behind the scenes stuff, figuring out how things work. So I guess it's kind of in a sense, and that's really what I've ended up doing.

    She has lived on three different continents. And in every continent she's been to, she has realized that despite the differences, the struggles people face are the same.

    If it's organic, it'll work and it'll last so some people do not really understand organic growth, organic friendships. organic lasts longer.

    I always say to people that there are a lot of people who are carrying "Giddens Calls".

    So many people have lost their jobs, and it's gonna take a long time for the economy to recover. So in the meantime, we got to do with what we have right now gotta utilize what we have.

    I had to decided to deposit, I had to decide to set myself free. The moment I did that, my mind opened up.

    I speak about depression, I speak about my journey to healing, we can all heal, but we have to take action, we have to decide what we need.

    The most important thing in my eyes is to see people taking action on building their dreams and making their goals a reality.

    Oftentimes we're comparing ourselves against an unrealistic idea. And this is not helpful for anyone.

    Sometimes we forget that we are human, and there's only so much we can do. And we also need to prioritize all the things that we could be doing.

    Being able to create money from the comfort of my home, regardless of any circumstances, was more important than the discomfort of my fears of overcoming and stepping through my fears.

    I understand the value of coaching, I understand the value of investing.

    If your goals are more important than your circumstances, you'll figure it out.

    Like marketing is all about creating connections.
