One of my past podcast guests, Kato @katoproducer , came into town for less than 24 hours as part of his Sound Advice Tour. He was all the way across town, came straight from the airport & had a very small window to catch up before speaking to his audience for 4 hours.
So I posed the option of coming to the studio he was at and doing a live podcast. I also knew it would be a great experience for any content creator and I had talked w/ Jesus Jimenez @jesusmarkets , so I asked if he’d be interested in shooting some content on a whim.
This is what I love about content creators. He was like, “I’m down, let’s do it.” That’s it. And I knew this would be something really unique and Jesus and I were blown away.
1 – We didn’t know what to expect, but we both walked into one of the coolest studios in the world. I mean, how many times can you say you’ve been in a pyramid that’s a recording studio.
2 – We watched as one man traveled the country to help other aspiring producers and artists better their craft, their position within the music industry and connect.
3 – We saw no competition amongst the artists, only support. Watching each of the bob their heads to each other’s work.
4 – We heard talent that the rest of the world hasn’t heard yet and a few that might just go on to be future Pharrell’s and Kanye’s.
5 – We enjoyed conversations with Kato. I enjoyed interviewing him for the podcast and sharing similarities in business no matter what industry.
6 – This is what we turned out for content and much more coming.
The point? So many people ask me about content and marketing their brand and I always say the same thing. Just f—king move. I didn’t know what to expect but I brought my work ethic with me and made sure to share the love of this experience with another creator. We did it on our time for the sake of doing it.
Listen, part of building your brand is enjoying the relationships along the way and creating experiences that 5 to 10 years down the road you can look back on and say, yeah, we did that, I remember that.
Big shout out to Jesus for his creative direction @thevisualcollection - Be sure to check him out and support him. That’s what it’s all about. - 59 minutes ago
