Transcript

Hey, what's up my friends! I hope that you're doing well wherever you are in the world. It is officially 2023 and I just first and foremost want to say Happy New Year, my friends. I'm very excited that we have another year and another opportunity to change our lives, to transform our trauma and to become the heroes of our own story.

You know, last year, one of the things that we did that I'm very proud of, not only for myself, but the team is, we released a show every single day, 365 days in a row, and that was a huge accomplishment. And in that time period, a couple of things happened. One, I realized, it's a lot of work, way more work than I thought it is emotionally and mentally demanding and ultimately it is something that I feel like brought a lot of value to my life and I hope your life.

As we head into 2023, we will no longer be doing a daily episode. We are still doing multiple episodes of week, right now we are for sure going to do three Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and we may actually end up doing four. I'm not positive just yet. A couple of reasons why we are doing this is one, as you may know, I also run a company called Pods of Purpose, where we help purpose driven entrepreneurs use podcasting to create content to empower and change the world. We have a litany of shows under our belt there, and I'm also launching a new show over there called Entrepreneurs With Purpose that show will actually be launching next week.

And if you don't know this, I've been an entrepreneur for a very long time. I'm very passionate about it. I love, love, love being a business owner and helping people solve problems and so, I wanted to create a secondary show.

And so, Pods of Purpose will end up coming out twice a week, that'll probably be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. So, we're still going to be putting out five to six days of content and podcasts just in different arenas. And then I'm also working on a third show right now that will soon be announced. I'm not ready to talk about it yet cause I'm working out all the pieces.

That said, Think Unbroken is near and dear to my heart. We're going on five years, almost 600 episodes. I've interviewed hundreds of people and I've recorded just myself hundreds of times talking about what I know about this journey of transformation. And so, as we continue to go forward, that won't change there will just be less frequency. And I had a couple of thoughts behind that not only is it creating the new content for the new show, but it's also, it's about can we create better content for you? Can I get amazing continue to get amazing guests? And one of the things that I got from feedback from people was that it was just so constant and frequent they weren't able to listen to everything that they wanted to. And I get that because I have my favorite shows and I don't always get to listen to all of those and so, I know what that's like. You're like, oh man, I really wanna listen to this, but I have 9 million things to do.

So, lowering in the frequency, you should just know right now it's not about lowering the quality that will never, ever, ever happen. But what will happen is we'll make some adjustments around how often we're doing it. And I'll tell you this, we have amazing guests in the hopper for you. You may not know this, but we already have content for the next three months, all brand-new episodes where you may have noticed at the end of 2022 because of the focus on Unbroken Conference, because of the focus on needing to pivot because I run another business as well, we did a lot of compilations. There were new episodes, so all the Unbroken conference episodes with those speakers were all brand new but it was so tight trying to get those in. And basically, what happened was we had to do a lot of compilation episodes, we had to do a lot of mashup episodes. I had to throw in some old episodes from the vault and I wanna make sure to continue to serve you guys at the highest level by creating new content with less frequency, but more intention. Just to be straight up with you, I am the kind of person that when I say I'm going to do something, come hell or high water, it's done. Anyone who truly knows me knows this. And the reason why is because to me, it's not only integrity, but word is bond.

You know, growing up where I grew up, a big part of this was like, you gotta keep your word all the time. And I'm not gonna lie, I've struggled with that in my teens and definitely in my twenties but it's for years and years and years and years I do everything in my power to keep my word, whether it's, you know, my own physical health, doing Muay Thai, running marathons, doing 75 hard, the way I eat, the way I date, the way I communicate with people, the way I run businesses, the way I have friendships, the way I talk to it's like I do exactly what I say I'm going to do always all the time.

Now, the downside of that is sometimes doing what you say you're going to do at frequency, in capacity of nonstop all the time, 24/7 leads to burnout, leads to not giving it enough effort, leads to a lot of different things that I am not particularly fond of. In fact, as I look back at 2022 in this podcast particularly, one of the things that I'm not happy about is the number of compilations, mashups, and old episodes that we had to re-air, not that you shouldn't do that, cuz I find huge value in that, it was just the frequency in which we had to do it because of my speaking schedule, my travel schedule, events, running multiple business. And what happened is I realized like, oh man, I'm keeping my promise to do this every single day. And what's really fascinating is people still continue to listen. So first and foremost, thank you for that. In fact, just a week ago I found out we were the number one show in the entire country of Iceland, it's amazing. It is the first time we've ever cracked have been number one. We've been as high as number seven, number nine around the world, you know, closing in on a million download, we've done a lot, but what I will say is we've never been number one. And so that was a really, really powerful experience and that tells me that you guys are listening, that you're not mad at the compilations or mashups.

For me what it feels like, the most pertinent thing that I can do is create a higher level of quality content for you. And so that will be the game plan moving forward. So, we'll continue to do guest interviews because I think that's really important. You will see me integrate myself into those interviews more to be straight up with you and I've told a lot of the people, especially recently, who've been on the show. I've told them, you know, we've recorded 500 plus episodes of this. I've interviewed hundreds of people. We've said a lot of things that can be said, and so I want to pivot into giving the space for more storytelling, maybe not doing so practical of a podcasts, like A plus week equal C, but more let's talk about the emotions and the feelings and the things that come up with that. And then I think the other element of it is to integrate myself into the show more because, well, it is my show and I have a lot of things that I can bring to the table that we haven't even discussed. So, you'll see that in guest interviews, but also in the solo episodes that I do moving forward. I'm gonna share some stories with you. I've never shared on this show before. I'm going to share really how I've overcome some dark shit. I'm also gonna share some really dark things because I think it's important. And as the host of the show and someone who has gone down the path that you are on, or you are starting or you've been down, I think it's really important to share what I understand to be the frameworks for change based on the experiences that I've had, something that I haven't done at scale for two reasons.

One, I felt especially at the beginning of this show, that I really wanted to highlight my guests, which I still want to do, that's very, very important to me. But two, there's something in my heart that I feel about the approach of practicality in an analytical sense that we've said everything that can be said and I mean this like I really do. If you really started at the beginning of, Think Unbroken Podcast going back almost five years ago and you listened to all the episodes, everything you could ever imagine about healing trauma, is there, it's all there. And so now as we pivot, it's like I want to get into the more storytelling mode, share more of myself, my journey, and look, I accept the reality of doing so. There's going to be people who stop listening and there's gonna be people who are like, you know, you talk too much or you tell too many stories or whatever. But in my heart, that's what I believe is right to not only, I want to connect with you guys all more, like I think that's really probably foundation, the most important aspect of this to me. I want to connect with you more in a human way, less so in a coach way and less so in a mentor way and more so as a, here I am, this is the shit I've been through, this is how I think about life, is there practicality in that? Sure. I'll talk to you how about how I work through certain things, but ultimately, I want to have a really humanized connection and conversation with you, that feels important. So that's kind of the framework, what I think and believe is in the best intention of the show for you, for me, for Think Unbroken as we go forward into 2023. And to be honest with you, I'm very excited. I'm very excited because there are some guests who are coming to this show who will absolutely blow you away. There's a couple of people, I won't say their names because I want you to know when it happens. There are a couple of people who are coming on this who literally never do podcasts, they maybe do three or four a year, and to get them on the show has been a hurdle, to say the least but the quality of people that I'm having on is massively important moving forward.

So, I'll leave it at that. I won't go in too deep, but you can expect to see this approach as we go forward into this year. And I wanna know your thoughts, I wanna know your feedback so whether you leave a review, whether you click the subscribe, if you're listening to this on YouTube, or if you DM me on social, like I want to know if you're getting more or less value. Do you want it every day? Do you want it three times a week? Two times a week? Like, I don't know what the magic number is, I just know that in my heart, I feel like because we're adding the entrepreneurs with Purpose Podcast, because we're adding a couple other shows under our belt, a couple that I'm really passionate about.

One is going, so I'll probably have four shows by the end of the year, and one of them is going to be, you guys don't know except I've shared it before, like I really cut my teeth public speaking in standup comedy, and I fucking love comedy, it's one of my favorite things. And so, I'm starting a comedy ish podcast. I'll get into it later. I don't wanna let the dragon out of the den before we have him tamed.

So anyway, that said, my friends, thank you for being here. I'm very excited for 2023. I'm very excited to continue to serve you, to bring on amazing guests to help you transform your life into triumph.

Do me a favor, please leave a review. I looked at the stats. 90% of the people listening to this show have never left a review, that's thousands of reviews. Guys, please trust me when I say, when you leave reviews, it helps other people. You're playing a role in somebody's transformation when you do so. So do me a favor, do that, do yourself a favor, help transform the world.

And with that, my friends, thank you for being here.

Thank you for listening.

And Until Next Time.

Be Unbroken.

I'll see ya.
