In this episode, I discuss how my role at WooThemes has evolved and how - as a result - I've had to adapt my to-do lists to give me maximum motivation and a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.
In the last couple of months, I've really been trying to revolutionize my life on all fronts and I've definitely been feeling the benefits thereof (emotionally, mentally & physically), whilst my business successes speak for themselves (said in a very humble way).
So in this episode, I suggest 5 ways which will help you identify the Happier Rockstar within yourself. Note that whilst I use the "rockstar" reference, this whole excercise won't mean anything unless you actually make it your own. It's not about replicating what I've done (or what others have done), but instead about learning from those experiences and then going on your own revolutionary journey.
So it's about that time of the year where I feel the need to freshen things up a little and launch a new project...
The Rockstar Foundation is a non-profit organization which will be funding the education of disadvantaged girls in South Africa. We intend on using social media to run the foundation and hope that our transparency and cool ideas will spark some interest among you all.
As I have no experience whatsoever with non-profit organizations, I'd really appreciate your thoughts on the matter.
In my opinion there are two types of content i.e. unique content & rehashed content (with or without unique commentary / thoughts added). So this obviously affects the way web publishers work, as the one requires a little more though and inspiration compared to the other. In this episode I thus talk a little about these different content types and also how this relates to what I'm doing.
This episode - and the questions therein - is also part of a slightly bigger picture. I'm working on improving my online persona / web presence and I've got to figure out what's next in terms of the type of content that I'm going to produce. I thus hope that you'll have a little discussion with me in the comments... :)
Along with blogs, Twitter & everything else social media, came the ability for any Average Joe to simply speak their mind and publish their opinion. Whilst this is all very democratic, I'd like to think that opinions don't really matter in the business world.
So in this episode I talk about how companies / brands need to listen to opinions (as they need to interact with customers / stakeholders), but that there's a fine balance between listening and allowing useless opinion to influence the way we run our businesses / brands.
