This pod is basically The Creator’s School
Every episode is packed with so much value you might need to take notes to keep up with it all! As I’ve been growing in my creator journey on tik tok and Instagram, I’ve felt like Tom is consistently giving me info that’s like a cheat code. Because of this podcast, I’m better equipped to create better content and I’m actually about to land my first brand deal all from applying what I’ve learned from Tom.
If you’re a new or veteran creator, I know you will find tons of value in each episode because that seems to be Tom’s goal. He doesn’t want to waist your time he just wants to provide value and I appreciate that!
Tom inspires me in my work!
I like to listen to Tom in the morning while I am getting ready for work because he inspires me. The way that he takes a overly humble approach to his interview questions, being more of a guide than the self-proclaimed expert (even though he is one)- reminds me that I, too, can put myself out there as the most curious and passionate creator without seeming arrogant or mis-leading. I just love his approach, and pod so much!
Love this podcast!!
As a long time creative myself, I love binging these episodes learning how Tom and his guests are growing their audiences and building their brands in today’s market. Favorite podcast to listen to!
