    5 Way Too Early Predictions About ChatGPT and AI for Personal Brands

    5 Way Too Early Predictions About ChatGPT and AI for Personal Brands

    Let’s see how many of you remember this “ancient” movie reference to the potential perils of AI (Artificial Intelligence):
    “Open the pod-bay door, HAL”
    “Sorry, Dave, but I can’t do that”
    Whether or not you got the reference, there’s definitely a lot of buzz about AI. Is it a potential ally? Will it be society’s downfall? This week, Mike will share his thoughts and insights on recent trends in AI, especially ChatGPT. He’ll discuss: 
    What ChatGPT can do pretty darn well, and what it can’t do so well. How we often perceive (and misperceive) technological advances. Five ways we can make AI and other technological advances work for us, rather than against us. Why we must be our own best catalyst. Why it’s becoming vital that we share our values.  Whatever your present feelings about AI, you’ll find comfort and strength in Mike’s wisdom. Like the Polar Express train conductor so famously said: “The most important thing about trains is deciding to get on”

    Eavesdrop on My Group Coaching Call for Online Marketing

    Eavesdrop on My Group Coaching Call for Online Marketing

    This week, we’ll have the privilege of being “flies on the wall” while Mike Kim coaches a group of online marketers. You’ll glean some nuggets from this session that will positively impact your business. Your mission, “Jim”, should you choose to accept it, is to implement what you’ll learn. The “Secretary” will not disavow any knowledge of your actions (and this message will not self-destruct in five seconds). Good luck, “Jim”. Among other things, you’ll learn:
    What it means to “train to standard” and “save your partner’s life”. Why it’s important to have a goal of making $1 per email subscriber in monthly recurring revenue. Why you must not despise the “day of small beginnings”. What does FLOATS mean, and why is it vital to your business success? How you can effectively systemize your marketing. Why it’s vital to play the guide, and not the hero, in your marketing. Why it’s probably not a good idea to focus on who unsubscribes from your list.  Regardless of where you are in your online marketing journey, you’ll definitely benefit by listening in on Mike’s coaching. It’ll be well worth it.

    My Daily Self-Affirmation Track

    My Daily Self-Affirmation Track

    Please Read: Affirmations have been a huge part of my growth this past year and I thought it would be appropriate to publish the actual track I listen to every morning and evening.
    While my background is in writing, I’ve always found it difficult to write my own affirmations. I’ve collected several from a few books I’ve been reading, the most significant of which has been Quantum Success by Sandra Anne Taylor. This book contains several affirmations at the end of each chapter, so I recorded them and created my own affirmation track.
    If you’d like the transcript I wrote for this episode, visit the show notes page here: mikekim.com/yatb360.
    I left this track without music or other normal pre-rolls, so that you can listen to your own music in the background and not be distracted by other audio segments.
    Happy New Year, and may 2023 be your best year ever.

Miriam Schulman ,

@schulmanArt host of The Inspiration Place podcast

Troll killerr ,

Genuine and Informative

Mike has a way of really extracting the best of people. I think it’s attributed to a few things, one, he is genuine, caring and considerate. He truly sees the best in others, and he looks to really elevate people and share their info if he believes it can help the world. Mike constantly sets the standard for not only adding values to others, but being a valuable person in general. Keep up the amazing way you show up in this world!

Dan1777999877 ,

Highly recommend!

It’s obvious Mike puts extraordinary effort in covering salient topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights they bring to bear are still mind-blowing every. single. time.
