How many people have never heard of me before? Awesome. Very cool. So I started my podcast called school greatness three years ago, and I started it because of a girl. A girl that I moved to los angeles, four from new york city and she broke up with me the first day I moved there. Yeah. Hoo ah's. Yes. And I remember I was driving in traffic miserable that I just moved to l a I was on fire in new york city. I was living the life of my dreams. I was so excited and I was in traffic in l a, you know, l a traffic. I was in traffic sitting there for hours, going one mile, right? And I was like, there's got to be a better way, there's millions of people who are driving in traffic and community every day there's gotta be a way to connect with these individuals. And I said, this podcasting thing is starting to pick up. This was back in two thousand twelve. So this podcast thing is starting to pick up a couple of my buddies. We're doing it, and they said they were making a ton of money and building their audience in a big way and driving a lot of traffic was like these guys could do it, I think I could figure it out and that's why I started it so my pain became my pleasure you know, this break up turned into something really cool and I went with what was once so that's how I got into it I had no clue what would happen, but it's literally trains my life and my business and everything. I've got a book coming out because of the podcast, which we'll talk about a little bit and so much has happened for my business it's it's grown exponentially the opportunities to speak places the people I get to meet our incredible because I have a show I interview people still we're talking about all this stuff today and I'm very excited let's get into this a little bit about me before that I used to play professional football so those that didn't know anything about me who is the hands we don't know anything about me, david and tracy okay, cool angela and everyone else ok, cool. So I used to be an athlete played professional football and I got injured playing football, but I a transition into the online business world, so I became an online marketing guy and taught myself entrepreneurship and grew from there for the last six years. Now I speak it a lot of conferences again, I have this podcast called school of greatness and I have this book out it's called a school of greatness as well and we're talking a lot about monetizing towards the end of this class you were talking about some of the basics of being her stuff for those that don't have a podcast and have no clue what you're doing we're talking about the basics but then really monetization I think is what a lot of people want to learn about how to do how many people in here don't want to make money with your podcast going and raise your hand if you want to make zero dollars with your podcast okay so everyone in here is very interested in learning how to monetize it correct awesome and so who is this class for so for those watching live wherever you guys are live and for everyone here it's for beginners that really want to learn how to streamline this how many of you who did you say it takes a lot of time to do the editing right how much time does it take you to do one podcast anything um editing is probably two two and a half hours two and a half hours wow how long your episodes about morning a forty five minute forty five minutes okay and you find that's a mane pain point for you is that you take forty five minutes to record it but then you take more than twice three times as much to edit it and get it up totally pain point you do not want to do it not yet, but I could feel that coming right you could feel it coming so let's let's dream like that for you today I'll show you guys how to do that for people that are ready to make some money with it people that want to take it the next level see if nathan you've been doing it for you and a half did you say that the bar, the brewery, the micro breweries that he said hi to start brewing and you've been monetizing it a little bit that sounds like yeah nathan saying he's he's monetized it a little bit so he gave me one of these yeah, so that means not that much. So we want to talk about for people who have been doing it for a year and a half how to really start leveraging that and making more money uh and anyone who wants to get major exposure for their brand so how many of you want to build your brand? You want to get, uh featured in the press you want to give you to speak more? Is anyone in here want to do that? Awesome.
