Dallen Taylor from Dallen Taylor Productions assisted Tony Taylor in interviewing Chris Do of The Futur on the concept of branding. Do emphasized that branding is more than just logos and visuals, but also a strategic business skill that involves creating a person's gut feeling about a product, service, or organization. They discussed how Do's brand was created with a specific mission in mind to teach a billion people how to make a living in what they love while also teaching creative and business skills to create a sustainable practice. The conversation also touched on the importance of working at a high velocity and volume, finding a pace that can be maintained for the long haul, building a brand and world in a fast-moving content environment, and creating powerful short-form content.

In this episode of my podcast, I take a deep dive into my fears. From my childhood to adulthood, I've had my fair share of fears that held me back. But I've come to realize that by committing to facing them, I've been able to overcome them. One of my biggest fears was people. I was always so afraid of what others might think of me, and it held me back from so many opportunities. But as I got older, I realized that no one is perfect and that everyone has their own insecurities. I started putting myself out there more, and I was amazed at how much my life changed for the better. Another fear that I've had to overcome is driving on the highway. I remember when I was younger, I would get so anxious when I had to drive on the highway that I would avoid it at all costs. But one day, I decided that enough was enough. I was going to drive from North Carolina to Indiana, and I was going to do it on the highway. It was a long journey, but I did it. And as I reached my destination, I felt a sense of accomplishment that I'll never forget. I talk about this experience on the show and the mindset that helped me to overcome my fear. I hope my story will inspire others to face their fears and take control of their lives. This episode is for anyone who has ever struggled with fear and anxiety and wants to take the first step toward overcoming it.

But what if you're afraid? To overcome this fear, it's important to remember that not everyone will agree with your perspective, and that's okay. I have had people make whole podcast series just to spite me. If that episode would have aired 15 years ago I would have been crushed. Instead, I was excited. I w It's natural to worry about how others will perceive your content, but it's important to remember that not everyone will agree with you, and that's okay. The key is to focus on providing valuable and informative content that speaks to your target audience and helps to establish your business as a thought leader in your industry. Content creation is a crucial aspect of modern business, and it's important to embrace it and get over the fear of being judged.

I’m super excited to share this very powerful episode with you! Last year I sat down with the VP of Communications and Programming for the Wisconsin Veteran Chamber of Commerce. To be exact the date was November 19th. Adam fired me up! Adam empowers professionals to embolden their brand, elevate their careers and develop powerhouse networks. Adam is one of the most real dudes that I have met. During this episode, we discussed social media trolls and the many crises our veterans endure on a day-to-day basis. It is brutal! Talking about these issues really annoyed me. I don’t understand how the heroes of this country are often stepped over and ignored. That is unless it's Veteran’s Day. There are so many broken promises that need to be upheld. Adam Braatz is an author, speaker, US Air Force veteran, and business owner. He also serves as Vice President of Communications and Programming for the Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce. Adam empowers professionals to embolden their brands, elevate their careers, and develop powerhouse networks.
