Nobody is Listening to You (Until They Are)
I'm not a fan, so I didn't think anything of the new Kanye West documentary on Netflix, but I had a couple of people I trust recommend it to me, so I took a chance on it.
It's very good, especially for creators such as podcasters. It's easy to look at what Kanye is doing now, or get sucked into the "celebrity drama" that always seems to surround him, but before be was a billionaire and one of most influential urban artists in the world, he was just a guy who wanted what he was doing to be heard.
Three big takeaways:
- The outside doesn't always reflect the inside. Dude was making beats for $50 even after he had a Platinum record on the wall.
- What you do for money may end up being what you're known for, even though you want to be known for doing something else, so be careful with the "money jobs" you take.
- Be careful of surrounding yourself with "Yes Men" – they will hurt you.
In this issue of Big Podcast Insider, I've got some ways for you to grow your podcast audience, boost your authority and "celebrity" in your market, and save money on both podcast media hosting and a great dynamic mic.
