Spiritual Foundations

I love this particular scripture from Deuteronomy 8:18, “You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.”

For those of you who get all freaked out when we talk about God getting involved in wealth creation…not only is He for it, He gave you the power to get it.

You need confidence and you need to be able to recognize your own power, but also to remember who granted that power to you.

Respect the creation, but worship only the Creator.

Tip of the Week

You know you’ve arrived as a content creator when people just start sending you stuff out of the blue.

Now let me clear, I’m not opposed to people sending me their products to try in the hopes that I’ll talk about it on my podcast. If it’s quality stuff and makes my life better, I don’t mind talking about it.

That’s exactly what happened recently when I was contacted by Aaron at Arkon Mounts. They have the largest assortment of professional-grade mounts, holders, tripods, and stands for tablets, phones, cameras, GPS, and live streaming.

We’ve put a link in the resources section for all the cool stuff I received. If you want to see me unboxing and assembling these items you can check out my recent vlog entitled Do The Hard Things.

I know you’re going to be blown away by the quality of these products.  They are all backed by a 2-year standard warranty.

    I LOVED this episode! Thanks so much for helping me be more productive and effective!

  • I love the approach of repurposing and leveraging content. However, I do have one question…

    If each week I publish out a video, blog, podcast Facebook, LinkedIn, twitter, and medium (not Google+) post on the same topic, would that be considered too much repetitive content?

    I mean, if someone reads my LinkedIn post, likes it, looks at a few others, then goes to my blog and sees the same content, then downloads my podcast… etc. would that benefit or hurt my ability to attract new fans?

    Please don’t take this as me looking for excuses, I’m not. But I am looking for the strategic wisdom behind this how-to info.

  • I love this system of creating content! I’m already planning to execute on it this week.

    I do have one quick question though… Do you recommend publishing 10 versions of the same content each week on all your platforms? Or is there a more strategic approach to doing this?

    Hey guys! Been listening to the podcast for a while and love it. I’m all about Kingdom stuff. This episode was great, but I’m wondering about the benefits or downside of duplicating the same content on so many different platforms. Do we just assume that different people are consuming the content different ways, or do you do extra work to differentiate so that, say, someone who reads the blog post also has incentive to listen to the podcast episode?
