Day 2: Uploaded a New Podcast Episode, Created 3 Video Tutorials and Kicked Fear in the Pants #endoor

Life threw me a couple of curve balls today and knocked me off my axis for a couple of hours. I took some deep breaths and got back in the saddle.

The first thing we did was upload episode #24 this morning with Dr. Steve Taubman. Man, I sure enjoyed getting to know this guy. He was very interesting. If you are reading this message you should drop everything you are doing and go to and listen to this episode. Dr. Steve is great and will help you remove the mental blocks that may be holding you back. I practiced some of the things I learned from him on the episode with  him today and it had an amazing affect on me.

Sometimes you plan on a task taking a certain amount of time but then it ends up taking much more than you thought. Such was the case during one of the video tutorial I produced today. I produced a PicMonkey tutorial and it took me a while to figure out how to produce a radial gradient in PicMonkey. I’m obsessed with producing the best possible product for those who want to podcast. I felt like ditching the PicMonkey tutorial, after all, nobody would notice. Except me! So I took about 2.5 hours to figure out how to create the radial gradient graphic in PicMonkey. I’m glad I did.

Because of the extra time involved in the PicMonkey tutorial, I only finished 3 video tutorials today. So far, I’ve completed 7 tutorials. I think I will pick up pace tomorrow.

My fears are leaving me as I ONLY concentrate on product creation. With each video I create I visualize somebody in the room with me as I teach. I really want to connect with people as I train, even though this product will be a digital download.

I realize the next challenge will be establishing the website and membership platform as soon as the videos are completed. Then the true test begins as I begin to release information to the public. This is the part that makes me nervous, so I don’t think about it right now so I can get the course completed.

I kicked fear in the pants several times today.

For those of you that may be wondering what tools I am using to create my podcast course, here they are:

  • Computer: iMac 27″ retina
  • Microphone: Heil PR40
  • Camera: Built in camera on my iMac
  • Mixer: Mackie 1402
  • Processor: Behringer MDX 4600
  • Screen Capture Software: Screenflow
  • And I’m using a pop up green screen behind my office chair to give a little awesomeness to each tutorial at the beginning.

So there you have it. I began work at 5:00 a.m., took a couple hours off to be with Jan and am quitting for the day at 7:25 p.m.

This is John signing off for the day.

May you have . . .

Much Continued Success,


P.S. Talk again tomorrow.
