    The Future of Podcasting & Influencer Recession

    The Future of Podcasting & Influencer Recession

    Welcome back to another insightful clip of Market Mondays series! In this clip, we dive deep into the current state of podcasting and the influencer market with our special guest, 19 Keys. Hosted by Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings, this discussion sheds light on crucial topics that everyone in the digital space needs to be aware of.

    Episode Breakdown

    *Introduction of 19 Keys:*
    19 Keys opens the discussion with an intriguing question about the future of podcasting and whether there's an ongoing "influencer recession." With his wealth of knowledge in personal branding and technology, he sets the stage for an engaging conversation.

    *Influencer Recession:*
    Rashad Bilal discusses the signs of the influencer recession, noting how various markets, including comics and financial literacy influencers, are witnessing a downturn. He provides examples from the financial literacy space, where many influencers who rose during the pandemic have now gone silent. Even platforms like OnlyFans are not as lucrative for some as they used to be. Rashad's insights help contextualize why this recession is happening and what it means for the future.

    *Podcasting for Everyone?*
    Can everyone succeed in the podcasting realm? Rashad and Troy think not. They highlight the complexities and the effort required to produce high-quality content. From researching topics to editing episodes and creating engaging social media snippets, there's a lot more to it than just talking into a microphone. Rashad suggests that while everyone should have an Instagram to build their personal brand, podcasting is not necessarily for everyone due to its labor-intensive nature.

    *Monetization and Value:*
    Troy further breaks down the monetization aspect. Not everyone should start a podcast just to make money; the true value lies in passion and the unique message you offer. He explains that even celebrities have backed out from podcasting, realizing it's not the cash cow they expected. If your goal is solely financial, you won't last long in this space.

    *Niche Down & Build Value:*
    19 Keys adds nuance by discussing how important it is to find your niche. He outlines how podcasting can be a powerful tool for personal branding and content funneling. With a specific focus, you can create a smaller but more engaged audience. He emphasizes the significance of authenticity and how smaller, focused audiences can provide greater returns for advertisers. Using his own experiences with Cordyceps and other health products, 19 Keys illustrates how niche podcasting can serve as a content funnel to various aspects of your business.

    *Invest Fest 2023:*
    The speakers then pivot to discuss the upcoming Invest Fest, emphasizing its uniqueness and its essential role in fostering a culture focused on future growth and wealth-building. They call on attendees to show up at their 100%, network creatively, and treat the event as a monumental opportunity for personal and professional growth.

    Key Takeaways:

    - *Influencer Market Downturn:* The influencer recession is real but temporary. Quality and consistency will keep you afloat.
    - *Effort in Podcasting:* Podcasting is labor-intensive and not for everyone. Passion and a unique message are critical.
    - *Monetization:* Diversify your income streams; don’t rely solely on podcasting for revenue.
    - *Niche Focus:* Finding your niche will help you build a dedicated audience and increase value.
    - *Invest Fest 2023:* Prepare to network, learn, and grow at this year's Invest Fest.

    Join us for this thought-provoking episode as we uncover what it takes to thrive in today's digital landscape. Your future self will thank you for it.

    Cliff Notes: Revolutionizing Business with AI: What Van Jones is Bringing to Invest Fest

    Cliff Notes: Revolutionizing Business with AI: What Van Jones is Bringing to Invest Fest

    Welcome to another exciting episode of Market Mondays! In today's video, our hosts, Rashad Bilal, Troy Millings, and Ian Dunlap, have a fascinating conversation with the incredible Van Jones. Van shares his ambitious plans for InvestFest and his nonprofit organization - Dream Machine Innovation Lab - that aims to empower the Black community through artificial intelligence (AI).

    Van Jones passionately emphasizes the transformative potential of AI, encouraging everyone, especially underrepresented communities, to embrace this technology as a "jetpack" for their businesses rather than fearing it as a "hand grenade." He draws parallels between today's AI revolution and the cultural revolution led by hip hop, urging the community to harness this new technology creatively and disruptively.

    Van discusses his innovative program, the Dream Machine AI Academy, which he launched with Will.i.am under the campaign "Make Wakanda Real." This program aims to make advanced AI tools accessible and understandable for everyone, irrespective of age or experience. Van highlights how AI can democratize opportunities across various fields, from making films and business plans to creating music and generating discretionary income.

    During the weekend of Juneteenth, the Dream Machine AI Academy held its first-ever session in Atlanta, attracting around 500 participants across a wide age range. Supported by giants like Microsoft and Amazon, the academy provided a crash course on AI tools, leaving attendees hopeful and excited about the future.

    Troy Millings queries about the feedback and reception from the initial class, to which Van responds positively, noting the participants' newfound optimism amid a challenging political and economic landscape.

    Ian Dunlap brings up the high costs associated with large language models and inquires about niche models that might benefit the community. Van underscores the importance of just starting with the available tools, emphasizing how AI can significantly streamline tasks, enhance productivity, and save costs, thereby preventing businesses from falling behind.

    He also touches on the considerable, yet untapped, power the Black community holds in various spheres – political, cultural, and spiritual. Van advocates for leveraging these aspects collectively to demand access to computing resources from tech giants, ensuring that African American institutions and businesses can stay competitive in the AI-driven future.

    Van’s enthusiasm is palpable as he anticipates bringing this revolutionary program to InvestFest, an event dedicated to fostering financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and innovation within the Black community.

Politically biased

They want to talk politics and inflation, but not the causes. Trump gets a free pass from these cats. Increase in money supply is not talked about and how Trump outspent Biden these past 4 years. Failure to do so is a misrepresentation to their audience. Shame on them.
