Hey everybody, welcome to the show. You know where you are 9 @ 9 with me TGo. And as you can see, I'm having technical difficulties, because for some reason, this morning, I tested everything. I promise you. And then I came back and my camera, wasn't seen by Streamyard and I've tried everything. So now I've got crystals going around my head.
I've got half a wall going over here, but you know what, as they say, the show must go on. And my good buddy, Michelle Abraham is here and I wasn't going to miss this. Hey Michelle what's happening? Hey Tgo how's it going? Thanks for having me here today. I'm so glad to have you here, you know, me and half my head. So I have you here and hang out with you for just a minute.
What's going on with ya? Oh my gosh. We're just enjoying the summer life. This, it's it's been awesome, just so many exciting things happening, new clients, new exciting things going on. And yeah, just looking forward to seeing what the rest of the year brings. Yeah. You know, you're an, a Podcast Expert, you know,
I kind of lean on you guys for you and Evans for advice and all that good stuff. You guys are taking the dive in the charter with us for, you know, PodNation.TV and, and all that. And I tell everybody, you know, if you guys want to get a set up, you need to talk to Michelle because I'm not setting it up for you.
They're going to take care of that for you. So what's been going on in the Podcast World. Are people more people starting to venture, venture to video and away from just audio? Absolutely. You know, it's funny you say that we've really seen a huge movement of people realizing we we've always coached our clients to like start with video because I feel like you have more opportunity.
If you start video, you can repurpose it in so many other different ways, but I've seen a real movement for the people who didn't already have, you know, their, their videos going on to now they're adding video to it. They're going to YouTube. Now they're using the video streaming apps. They're, they're getting more video there. They're wanting to get on video.
Now. Now I think people are more comfortable with video. And especially after being at, you know, the last year and a half in the world where now we've had to be on video for almost everything. People are more comfortable with video. Now they're wanting to add video to their podcast if they didn't already do it. Okay. So let's talk about,
you know, old school, we're going to call them old school. Cause I'm kind of in that group of old school, old school, business owners and entrepreneurs and all of that. And let's talk about the new groups that are coming in that are all going. I'm barely able to talk on my, you know, on my audio podcast and now TGo,
you're telling me I gotta be out there. And on video, what are you telling your clients get past the fear? Oh, that's a great question. You know, I think, you know, if you start being comfortable in that uncomfortable zone, you can move mountains. So I started this practice in my own, in my own life a few years ago.
And you know, it's really served me well, just do it anyways. If you don't want to do it or you feel uncomfortable doing it and do it anyways. And the more you do it and the more you practice it and the more you practice using your voice practice, being on camera, it becomes like second nature and it's no big deal anymore.
So my, my, my solution of fear is always getting to action. Yeah. Yeah. Excellent. Get into action. Now I've been in businesses. I was off and on since I was 10 years old. And you know, when I started my first business, we, I hung a couple of flyers up in the neighborhood. You know, now we're doing podcasts around the world and there's still people,
you know, that remember the yellow pages, you know, those things are just like, doorstops now people actually use those. So how important is being on video, having your own podcast to grow your business? It's not just to hang out and have fun with my buddies like we do. Now. How important is it to grow your business? Oh,
I think it's so important because in video, especially taking into the next level of video too, you can really see someone's personality, that authenticity you can't hide on these platforms. Right? So, you know, people are the real deal when you're, when you're able to listen to them week after week, or see them week after week on shows, there is no doubt that this person is true,
real authentic, and the type of person that if you love what they're saying, that you want to work with. Right. So I think that sets you so far ahead as an expert because people can really get to know like you and trust you so much faster. Yeah. So one of the biggest problems people have they say, okay, I'm getting past the fear.
I know I got to do video or at least audio and get my podcasts out there. So people know my message and know what my business is about, but how do I get guests? You know, how do I get people to sit in that other chair? So I'm not just sitting there talking to myself. So you guys have a solution for that,
right? Yeah, we do. We have lots of solutions for that. I mean, I think it's so, it's so awesome. I think being a guest is like one of the best things you can do to get your feet wet in, in, into the Podcasting World. So we have a solution where we can help you get on to other shows,
but we also have a workshop where we teach you how to go and find those shows that are specifically right for you and that have your audience already there. So if you're thinking about podcasting, but you're not quite sure you want to have your own show, being a guest is amazing because if you think about it, you're going out there and being guests on other shows your message and that show is living out there and working for you 24/7.
There's no other platform that can do that. Right. Right, right, Right. Totally. No other platform that can do that. So before we get cut off by Mr. Rude, Allen tell everybody, oh, there it is. There's your web address? Tell everybody how to find you in case they're listening. Right now? Absolutely. So if you go to AmplifYouNetwork.com. So A M P L I F Y O U Network.com. You can see all the shows that we work with. You can check them all out there. And then there's an email address there we're in the middle of rechanging our website, but this is where you see all the shows that we have been working with this year and how amazing they all are.
So what's coming up next for you guys. I know you're a part of the PodNation Family and I'm so happy that you are, and you bring in a lot of your friends along too. And I really, really appreciate of that, but what's coming up next for you. What's the next phase. Yeah. The next phase for us is we're going to start adding some events into our show,
into our business. So we're going to do some two day workshop events to get people really clear on that profiting there from their podcasts pathways. So what is that? What are those steps to profit from your podcasts? And so we're going to take you through a two day workshop of really getting clear on what that is and getting you that plan in your hands.
So then you can implement it into your business. We're seeing a lot of people come to us now who have a podcast and they have a business, but they don't talk to each other. So it's like relaunching, restarting. Let's figure out what that plan is to get you a profitable podcast, right? From the start, whether you're just starting new or relaunching,
this will be a great event for you. Oh, I Love that. I love that. So, you know, our producer has already thrown up our two minute mark. I can't believe it. It's gone so fast. You know, let's talk about real quickly. Some people say they won't get started because they feel like their first few shows are going to suck.
I say, they're going to suck anyway. So you might as well get started. I say, if you're not embarrassed by your first few episodes, you waited too long to get started. Oh, good. I love it. Okay. Tell everybody again how they can find you. Cause he's going to cut us off in like 40 seconds. So Yeah.
