Big Business and Hollywood Discovers Podcasting

The big guys are getting into podcasting these days. That means independent voices are more important than ever. Learn more in Independent-Podcasting-Necessary-Voices-Bob Davis Podcast 837.

Big Political Operators Too

Especially relevant are big political operators.

Independent Voices

Consequently supporting independent voices is more important than ever.

Being Independent Means We Make Our Own Decisions

What I have learned working for broadcast companies is especially relevant to creative people who are often the trail blazers and trendsetters. First of all, as independent voices we make our own decisions about our content.

Being On A Big Platform Might Mean More Control Of What You Do

Certainly being on a big platform is great for more feeds. Above all though, what happens when you go against the grain? I’ll tell you in Independent-Podcasting-Necessary-Voices-Bob Davis Podcast 837.

Free Speech

Everyone has a right to produce content their way. That includes business, political operatives and entities like public radio.

Happy To Be On Our Own

Similarly independent voices are necessary. I’m talking about those of us out here on our own. Today’s political climate is most noteworthy in this discussion.

Huge Opportunity For Independent Creators

Back in the day blogging was responsible for some of the most objective and powerful reporting. I think a similar opportunity exists today when it comes to podcasts.

Your Favorite Podcast Might Be Owned By The Mercers

Finally if every platform is owned by big business, political operatives, radio companies, Hollywood and institutions like public radio and TV it implies control of information and opinions, by definition.

Creating Our Own Content Answering To No One

So here’s to us independent content creators. We podcasters and YouTubers writing and producing our own content, trying to monetize our efforts, and saying what we think. No matter what.

Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827

We Are Our Own Worst Enemy

We are often our own worst enemy. This is an idea especially relevant to business owners. Financial and Business Consultant Todd Rooker and I talk about it in Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827.

Our Psychology Can Kill Our Business

Moreover these days wherever you turn for information you’re likely to get a prediction based on the past. It all adds up to preconceived notions and cognitive dissonance which can be fatal to a small business.

Perception Can Be A Reality You Don’t Want To Live In

Financial Consultant Extraordinaire Rooker says it comes down to business owners wanting what they want, when they want it. I think it also has to do with this habit of pundits and commentators everywhere trying to compare our time, to the past rather than the present.

Assumption Is The Mother Of All F-Ups

Consequently business owners need guidance. Its very easy to get off the path or the plan. Especially when we might not have had much of a plan to start with. We talk about all this in Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827.

Rooker Tells It Like It Is

Finally if you’re a business owner you won’t hear business being discussed with this level of clarity and authenticity very often. Rooker has worked with thousands of business owners over the years. When you add life and business experience, he has a lot of wisdom to share.

New World

Topics include the business mindset, cognitive dissonance and how to effects business owners, how different generations think about business overall, and our fast moving new world.

An Extraordinary Time

In conclusion I have certainly said over and over in these podcasts that I think we’re living through an extraordinary time. Never before have we faced the challenges we face. In addition we have never had tools with the power and scope we have these days. It’s a unique combination of factors we’ve never really seen before.

Despite the challenges it is a great time to be in business, as long as we don’t operate from preconceived notions.

Big thanks to the General Manager of the Bob Davis Podcasts, my mom! Moreover I spend a fair amount of time thanking my business networking group in Gratitude-Moving Up-2018-2019-Year End-Bob Davis Podcast 792.

Most importantly, my business networking group will remain anonymous because it is a secret weapon! If you are in business you know until you start networking in an organized group you don’t realize there are other people experiencing the same challenges.

Find out some of the best advice I have heard in Gratitude-Moving Up-2018-2019-Year End-Bob Davis Podcast 792. Similarly clients have also given me great advice over the years. I thank them one by one in this Happy New Year Podcast.

Finally my greatest thanks and gratitude is to the people who have listened and subscribed to these podcasts. Above all the people who have been on board since the beginning. Hard to believe we will hit podcast one thousand early in 2019.
