Cashing in on Creativity Podcast Gets Picked Up For Television

Cashing-in-on-Creativity-TV-Show

I am excited to announce that our podcast Cashing in on Creativity has been picked up by our local network YourTV for their television network. YourTV is a brand of Cogeco Television and we have been working with them for many years both as customers and business partners and have enjoyed that relationship. My television show Inspiring Youth has been on their network for four seasons now and I was excited to get a call from Station Manager Stuart Aker about offering a show for their summer schedule. Inspiring Youth runs from September to June each year and having found my podcast thought that might be an interesting show for their audience. Stuart thought I only had a few episodes so when I told him I had over 200 he almost went into shock. This is why I always keep my content, I wrote about it in a recent article that you can read here.

Inspiration to Keep Going When Creating Content

Inspiring Youth-Show-Season 4

Creating Content can be a daunting task. Coming up with concepts for that content, creating the content, posting it, and then hoping that content will be seen can be a lot of work. As creative entrepreneurs we can get excited about getting started on a certain project and then quickly fizzle out after not seeing results or even worse running out of ideas. To create content consistently takes organization, determination, and persistence. This is why many podcasters and You Tubers stop creating content after a few episodes because they realize how much work it is to keep going.

So why do it?

If it so hard to create content why bother starting in the first place? There can be a number of reasons for starting your podcast, YouTube channel, or personal blog that may include monetization or just to have a platform to relay an important message. It takes time to get a podcast or video channel going but if you keep the end goal in mind you can get there. Creating content can help you become an authority in your industry, bring opportunities in business, and offer ways to make money or even create a whole new business. As someone who has multiple shows and helped others get shows going of their own I have seen this happen for everyone. My own Son started a hockey podcast that led to opportunities working with hockey teams and managing social media accounts for teams.

There are times when you will want to quit, have trouble creating ideas, or even get tired of staying on a schedule but it is important to keep going. Content builds on each other so the first couple pieces may not garner much attention but as you keep going the content will build its own presence and then begin to work as a whole. Just like a book once an author writes several in a series the first one starts to garner attention, the same happens with content creation.

It can be very frustrating at times but if you keep going being a content creator can bring many opportunities. I have some shows that make money and others that don’t make a dime. The shows that don’t make any money have still brought great opportunities. Recently the Cashing in on Creativity Podcast was picked up by Your TV. The station was looking for content to fill their Summer Schedule and asked if I had the content in video form. I was able to provide them a full season of shows with a little editing and it allows for more exposure for the podcast. If I hadn’t kept going with the shows I wouldn’t have been able to take advantage of this opportunity. Below is the video preview for the series.

Watch for it starting in July 2021

If I can offer you some advice have multiple goals for your content creation. Have a goal for monetization if that’s what you want. Have a personal goal, and have a goal for how much content you want to create. This way even if you don’t hit all the goals you should hit one goal and then the project will be a success. If you need help creating that content check out some of our previous newsletters. Good luck with your content creation efforts.

Recently they had me as a guest on the show and the conversation was in high gear. If you missed the live version of the show then you can hear the replay below.

Leaders Inspire From the Inside

Bruce at television station

What is Leadership?

lead·er·ship
/ˈlēdərˌSHip/

Learn to pronounce

noun
noun: leadership
the action of leading a group of people or an organization.”different styles of leadership”h Similar:guidance, direction, authority, control, management, superintendence, supervision, organization, government, orchestration, initiative, influence
the state or position of being a leader.”the leadership of the party”h Similar: headship, directorship, direction, governorship, governance, administration, jurisdiction, captaincy, superintendency, control, ascendancy, rule, command, power, mastery, domination, dominion, premiership, sovereignty
the leaders of an organization, country, etc.plural noun: leaderships”a change of leadership had become desirable

We often think of leaders as someone in charge and commanding the group as the Google definition states above, but I think of leadership differently. I think of leadership as someone who inspires others by doing what they say they are going to do and helping others see their true potential. That vision will look different to different people and some may not even see themselves as leaders. Many times if you ask a leader if they are a leader they will say, “no.” Leaders are often leading groups even if not selected as the person in charge, they just offer their opinions and usually make the group a better place helping them move forward. You may be a leader and not realize it. Leadership may even be hidden under the umbrella of “ambition”.

I want to talk about silent leadership. The type of leadership where you don’t even know you are trying to lead someone. Maybe you are just trying to make life better for yourself and by doing that are inspiring others.

Silent leadership is when you don’t even put yourself in a leadership role but because of actions you are taking to improve your own life you are inspiring others. I have known Lucas Redwood for a couple of years. We met on set filming my television show Inspiring Youth and I was immediately impressed with this ambitious young drummer. Over the years we have been part of the same circles and I have watched this young person grow and look towards the future. With the pandemic Lucas has been instrumental in helping many of his musician friends transfer from doing in-person shows to playing concerts online. I was really impressed how he took a leadership role in helping musicians he had never met and learning software and other elements needed to put on an online show.

I have been so impressed with this leader that I have had him on my podcast and television show a number of times. I have even started helping him create his goals for the future. Lucas was awarded our Inspiring Youth Award for 2021 for all the great work he is doing and has done over the years.

Kia is another silent leader who helped put together a team of animators through a class at Sheridan College during the pandemic to create an animated film remotely with a team of over ten people. She has been instrumental in keeping the project going and even though she doesn’t see herself as the leader of the group, she was the one that took the initiative to seek out other art groups which is where we met. That resulted in the television show and now podcast.

For myself leadership isn’t about being in front or leading the group. It is about inspiring others to be the best they can be. I just remember my childhood days when I didn’t think I was good enough or feel I had anything to offer. To be honest I still feel that way sometimes, maybe that’s what keeps me striving to be better. Realize for you that leadership shouldn’t be a title, it should be a mindset. Hopefully you are leading others and you may not even know it and that’s okay too.
