Welcome back to a new episode of The Better Self Show!
This is again one of those episodes that I share with you a recurring failure which is that I have not recorded for a few months so it feels that I’m starting over one more time. I come back with new ideas and with better audio quality as I got a new microphone to record.
In this episode you will hear about what is my current situation with this podcast and the ideas I have for the next 3 months on how to move forward with the project and with my life. I hope you enjoy 🙂
A dream digital job
For the last few years and specially the last few months I’ve been in this journey of creating content in the form of a podcast, a long lasting dream, and I have come to some conclusions so far.
While looking at some videos, reading articles and browsing through social media it occurred to me that there are so many people out there (like me) whose dream is to have a sort of ‘digital’ job.
You know the ‘clichés’… turn your passion to your career, escape from the 9-5 job, be your own boss, travel anywhere while working, create passive income, become a digital nomad… Yes, I am sure that you have heard of those terms before if you want to be an entrepreneur.
I also have that dream but the journey is far more complicated than it seems at the beginning, and one more time I ‘failed’ and I am back doing content again.
It is easy to see all those who are successful in having their own digital business but hard to notice all of those who have failed along the way in trying…
It takes time to build a brand and all the people who have successfully done so have also started from the lonely beginning like me.
So my intention is to share this journey with you so maybe you can get inspired to do the same, maybe you can come back to this content if I ever become successful with this business or maybe you can witness one more person trying and not getting it.
What skills have I learned
The past 9 months have changed my life in many good ways. I got the opportunity to participate in a volunteering program (European Solidarity Corps) funded by the European Union as an IT assistant for an NGO called GEN Europe. Also I got the opportunity to live in a thriving ecovillage while doing the work that I may becoming part of depending on how everything goes after 3 months.
In this time I messed around with creating and documenting websites to the point that I now feel comfortable to do a website for another person.
I also published this podcast with all the editing and producing that goes behind the scenes. And lastly I helped GEN Europe with creating their own podcast called Community: The Ecovillage Podcast to help to spread the word around ecovillages and sustainable lifestyle (which is wonderful!).
So now I am at the point where I have no income and have to pay rent and all that stuff. I have at least 3 months of spare expenses and have different ideas on how to help others with their businesses and hopefully generate some income along the way.
In case you didn’t know yet, a few years ago I got trained and certified as a life coach. After some time I found difficulties in getting clients so I had to find a conventional job to make money having to leave it away… It is a skill that I feel deeply connected to and that I apply into my daily life, as well as philosophy.
At that time I always had the idea that it is easier to get clients if they get to know you before booking a session. Essentially that is now what I am doing with the podcast. I believe that there is a higher chance of getting hired if you share your own story so maybe people connect and resonate after hearing the podcast.
So the idea is to offer again one on one life coaching sessions for those of you who may feel in need of some assistance in setting and pursuing life or business goals.
With life coaching, active listening and powerful questions I can help you to go deeper within your self, redefine your goals and find your values so that you have a better chance in achieving those goals.
Having a good presence in the internet nowadays is essential for any brand or business. A website is probably one of the first things clients check out before purchasing products or services so having one is very important.
Since I have worked a lot with websites in the past few months I now feel confident in offering you this service if you need it. If you want to find more details please get in touch with me.
Whatever I do for my business is because I strongly believe in it. I believe that if you have a service or a product you probably have a lot of value to bring with your knowledge and experience. Having a podcast if a great way to help the world by bringing free value to many people and at the same time you can leverage whatever service you provide.
And even better with one piece of content (the audio) you can easily distribute it in many forms in social media so that in can reach even more people, again like I do with my page.
So if you are interested in exploring the possibility of having your own podcast please contact me. I am very passionate about this topic so I’ll do everything to help you out 🙂
Do you like the idea?
Well this is the intention of this next entrepreneurial phase that I’m living. To keep creating content for this podcast, and as income generation to start providing services for others who feel connected with my work.
So again, like always, thank you so much for listening to the episode if you did and for reading this content. I hope that it brought you value in some way and if you want to also bring me value with comments, feedback, support, or work please don’t hesitate to do so.
Thank you so much for being there and have a great day.
