What’s In This Episode:
Brad hates the word “content”. He thinks that whatever you put out, it’s got to be of a quality that people would pay you for it (and sometimes, they do).
“It’s very different to know your boundaries and then to actually do something about them. ” – Jill
Web designer, podcast host, musician, and mother of twins Gretchen DeVault calls in to ask how to deal with burnout. Brad and Jill advise her on why sleep is so important, scheduling a day off every now and then, turning off tech, and consider outsourcing some of her responsibilities.
And how can she cover that cost? Raise prices!
“Speak in your own voice and tell your own stories.” – Brad
Content used to be a thing that set businesses apart but now we’re drowning in it, says Brad. So how can you stand out from the noise? They discuss lazy content, consistency, and inspiration.
