[00:00:00] Introduction: Welcome to the #PirateBroadcast™, where we interview #interestingpeople doing #interestingthings. Where you can expand your connections, your community, #kindnessiscool and #smilesarefree. Let’s get this party started.
[00:00:10] Russ Johns: Yes, we're here. We're here. We're here. We're here. Fantastic. Happy Friday, Eve, Bonnie, wasn't able to join us today. She has a stomach flu. I hope you feel a better body. I hope you can join us again in the future. Love that you're here. And I just really I put up the #PirateSyndicate flag because I want to talk about some of the things that I don't communicate very well as an individual here online. And it's important for me to understand that in order to accomplish all our goals, we really have to put ourselves out there on occasion. And as you, if you've followed the pirate broadcast and the #PirateBroadcast and you understand what we do here, it's all about highlighting other people. And since I have a solo show today and. For those that haven't been on here recently or watching this replay I have the schedule at Tuesdays and Thursdays. We have a morning show Wednesdays. We have a five o'clock show afternoon, evening, whenever that is for you. And this is all produced by the #PirateSyndicate. Now the #PirateSyndicate is the agency, the live streaming agency. That is designed to help your business build a strategy, implement the livestreaming elements into your business. So if you're an agency or you haven't ventured down that path to create content for your creative clients would love to have a conversation with you. Love to talk to you about this. Live streaming and video in general is an incredibly valuable tool that you can use. Nick. Good morning, brother. Hope you've made it to your destination. Okay. And you are safe and sound. Nick Gemmell is here in the house. He's going to be joining us in the future. The signed up he's actually got an adventure going on that Ruby promoted. Sharing his things that are going on. He's done some, it does something interesting. So stay tuned in November. We're going to be having him and his team on a Wednesday show. If you haven't signed up, Nick, get that done, get that in place. Let's get it promoted. Just like the pirate, syndicate promotes other businesses, promotes other activities, and that can be yours, reach out, have them have a conversation with us and also on the #PirateSyndicate I would like to invite you to check it out because if you go in there and you go and you click on Courses #PirateSyndicate dot com slash courses. I'm starting to populate it with courses in there, and I want to make sure that you have the tools necessary to understand what it takes to get some of these things in place. If you're not an agency and you don't have a budget sometimes we have to do it ourselves. So there's things that are going to be available to you that you can learn and grow. And achieve your results and let's try to make it simple as let's make it easy for for everyone. But I want to put it out there because it's really important that we help each other out. We continue to grow and share and create abundance around that. And I'm also going to be doing a little bit of a workshop. It's there's no charge. So the workshop is going to be this afternoon at two o'clock Arizona time, which is Pacific standard time right now, Pacific daylight savings. I don't know what time it is, Arizona and Hawaii are the other ones that don't do daylight savings. Hey Gabe, how you doing buddy games in the house? Everybody knows Gaye, but he's he's an O G online. He's been through. Some of the pirate training and a process, you knows how to do lives like a master. And so I'm putting this workshop together because I'm an affiliate, I'm an affiliate full transparency. I am an affiliate for dub. I love the platform I promoted every chance I can. And I want to make sure that people understand how incredibly powerful this. And how valuable it can be for your business, because I think it's, I think it's important for us to know that there is there are tools we can use for doing this. And I should put up to let me put up the, let me see if I can get the link up there to actually join this. You going type in talk, probably not. Probably not real. Give it a try though. Real give it a try. So the one today is this link let me share the link here. That's a long link. Let's see if I can get, is this. I was up late last night. So I really I'm looking forward to helping everybody out with this. And in the meantime Howard was on the show last night and he gave us an incredible discount. So ORLCares/discount/pirate70. And Angie was on the other day, but here, oh, let me create banner squirrel. I just go in squirrel here, ad banner. So I can actually go tohttps://crowdcast.io/e/the-easiest-way-to-use. It's a long URL, but I'll share it in the notes. I'll share it in the show notes below. So let's go morning pirates DJs in the house. Thank you so much. Love that you're creating these workshops. Great value for free. You don't me, Gabe. I'm more than happy to share whatever information I can. And I am creating a course and it's a paid course. And I'm putting it out there and I'm creating these things and cause absolutely I have to pay the law, pay the bills get things going DJs here in the house morning pirates. She's another live streamer. She started live streaming after we got going. And she's been out there putting it, doing some incredible work. If you're not following DJ follow Gabe plus you also introducing people using crowdcast.io, Crowdcast, I have to tell you a story about Crowdcast. Crowdcast is one of these adventures that I got involved in and I. They were releasing a beta. I beta tested it. I was in San Francisco. I hung out with the founders and a sigh and Darren and, just amazing people, just developers, and that's where we're living in this amazing time in humanity. And we can create something from nothing. We can create a show. We can actually produce results and generate some conversation around it. I love crowdcast.io for a couple of reasons. Number one, when you go there, you can say save my seat and you can just sign up for anything in email. I get to connect with you. It's not if I go on other platforms where I don't get to connect with. It's pretty nice. It's a very nice platform. And then you can watch the replays. I can share it out. I can embed it and I can connect it to my drip account so I can actually email people back. So it's really pieces of those puzzles. DJ says here to learn. Love you, Howard Kaufman. Thanks captain. Appreciate you all the time. Always being involved, engaged. And if you're not connected with ORNL and Howard Kaufman, I love the product. I love what he brings to the table. I love his attention. I love his mission and I love supporting Howard. So Elise, thank you so much for joining Lisa jumped on last night, she couldn't sleep. It was like two o'clock in the morning for her time in South Africa. And all of a sudden she's jumping. Our evening show and I truly appreciate the support and kindness. It doesn't go under appreciated. I really do appreciate that. And it means a lot. Our Howard Kaufman great show with capital last night, it was a great show. It was a great show. So here's the deal. So it's a simple equation. The #PirateSyndicate produces shows for business owners, businesses teams, and individuals as well. For those that have the budget for building a team out, because when you get to a certain point, there's no way you can do everything by yourself. DJ. You know what it takes to produce a show, to get it all out there, organize it and get it done. There's Gabe done hundreds of shows. He knows what it takes to get it done and out there, the whole inviting your guests, booking it, the followup, all of the things that are necessary to make a show, actually work and come together. It's really important that you start building a team around this. You can, and that's what we're going to be doing. And we're going to continue to do at the #PirateSyndicate. The other thing though, is there's a lot of people that may just need a piece of information. They may not know enough to understand and appreciate what it takes. So as I build courses out in the #PirateSyndicate, that's another way that I can support the committee. So I would love your support and I'm going to throw in, extra bonuses and I'm going to be doing with this course that I'm launching on Monday is it's going to be, it's going to be focused around how video you can use video to actually expand your brand and book business. And, these. Hundreds of episodes that I've created. A lot of that has been generated by using a tool called dub full disclosure. I'm an affiliate. I love dub. I love to support dub, just like CRI crowdcast.io. I love using these tools from startups, and watching them grow and succeed. And so I'm putting a course together to help you learn about dub, but it's more than dub. It's more than. It's more than a tool. It's a strategy. It's how you think about using video, how you deploy video, where you do video, how you start conversations, how you build relationships, how you do introductions, all of these things that I've, practicing for decades. And so I'm bringing this all together in a course that's launching on Monday. So it's really important for us to understand that we have an opportunity. To increase our skillset, increase our ability to connect and collaborate and have conversations. So yes, DJ, all the things. Yes, Rob, what's going what's happening. Good morning, Rob runs the drunken grape. He's been on he's been a pirate for awhile. He's also. Running his show and he does a lot of great work in on LinkedIn. So go check his profile out, get it. Let's go get dialed in with Rob and Gabe says, good morning, my friend. Can't wait to see the new, amazing individual you're going to spotlight tomorrow. Marcia Reece. She was on the show last night. She's a, an amazing. Entrepreneur that has been developing products. He's got over 20 products that she's developed over time and out in the market. And she's passionate about Staywell copper and keeping people safe and sane, and also germ-free so follow Marcia and get involved and engaged in her products and services. And it's really simple. When you look at it from a, outside looking in, make it look easy. And as Gabe and Rob and DJ know, there's a lot of moving parts and it takes a little while to get used to this whole process and getting involved and engaged in starting a podcast, even it takes a lot of effort and it takes a little dedication and it's a long game. And what I want to do is I want to help you understand some of the things that are required and how to make it easier, avoid the pitfalls and all of that stuff. So if you're open to, if you're open to the opportunity, I would be more than happy to have you join this afternoon and join the session. So we're going to be talking about. You know how video could fit into your world and why it might be important. And it's a mini workshop. It's a quick 30, 30 minute session. I go through a lot of things. I've covered a lot of ground and you're open to join me. So I would love the opportunity to have you share that and see what it's about. I miss your streams, Russ. I always learned so much DJ. I really appreciate that. Thank you so much. I really appreciate you. And I had the same challenge, I would love to create enjoying more shows. I would love to, to generate more of this and fortunately, or unfortunately you, we all have things that we have to do in our business. We all have things that we have to do Keep the lights on. And one of the things that I love to do is help clients, create content, build their strategy out and social media. So there's some things out there that we can help you with at the #PirateSyndicate. So I would love the conversation and make sure that you have at least an awareness of what it is we can do. Gabe says imagine how many shows we have done combined Russ Johns, doing a daily show as a wonderful, but a tough grind. It is absolutely a tough grind. And I don't think I, I would be doing it without the support of Tracie my producer and she's on the team and mil she's, I got people behind me that are helping and supporting me. And it's really important. As you grow and you build and you develop there's somebody there to help you out and, help cover the the time and effort that it takes to do all of these things. Cause just like this show today, Bonnie was scheduled to be on here and she wrote an email to Tracie and she says, I have a stomach flu and I don't think I can make the show. So I wanted to give you a heads up. And so Tracie willing in, she did the graphics, updated it and shared it out. And boom, I still show up, it's just, my style is that I am really. I'm concerned. I don't know what I am consistent. Crazy. Maybe both. All of the above check professional squirrel hunter. Yes. A lover of life. Absolutely. And a helper of all people I would like to believe so. And so if there's something else that you want to hear on the. Syndicate or the pirate broadcast or a training tools, drop it in the comments. Let me know, because I'm happy to in fact, I just created a course yesterday about Facebook increasing Facebook activity and simple course. No, it's not, it's not 30 lessons that you find on you to me or something like. However, it gives you some key points and benefits of how to utilize a platform to build traffic and awareness in what you're doing. So these courses that, I'm just people ask for something, they say, Hey, would you help me on this? And one of my clients asked for that and I said rather than just having me go over with you during our session, I'll just create a course and then give you access to this course. So it's one of those ideas that I could keep on giving. I could keep on creating and delivering this information to anyone that needs it. And it's really, it's a simple process for me. It's on the, #PirateSyndicate the #PirateSyndicate dot com slash course. Let me, yeah, let me check that the #PirateSyndicate the #PirateSyndicate slash courses. Let's see if let's see if it's actually there. See if I actually remember my information correctly. Yeah. All right. Let me create another banner here on the fly live. You're watching it. You're watching it here today. So yeah, the #PirateSyndicate dot com slash courses, pretty simple. Oh Elisa says. Join your later show, please. Oh, let me share, let me just share that with you, how you join. Okay. Let me open up a let's do this live since we're just, it's just you and I today. I'm going to do, I'm going to open up a incognito window. I'm going to share it. Let me share the screen here. Let me turn this up. Share the screen, please hold while I look up your record. Okay. So now I'm going to share the screen, add to stream, and then I'm going to type in a Crowdcast iO. Okay. Now I want to look at this this event. So I'm going to say the easiest go to E I think there's an easier way to do this, but, and then slash. It should be easy. I should make it a lot easier easiest way to use. Okay. So once you go to this page that's wrong here. Let me fix this. I'll fix it while we're on here. But Crowdcast, you can actually watch the replay, but there's a green button up here and I'll send you the link. Elise, I'll send you the link and if you it's saved my seat. And so you just put in your email and you get access to the course, you get access to the, and it's a two o'clock. Let me open up another browser here. Let's see, I can't change it now because people have already signed up and if I change it, they won't be able to access it. Yeah. Okay. Sign it dashboard. Okay, let's go here. So there, so let me share it out on Twitter. You can go to Twitter, tweet it. All right. So that's out. That's out there. Let me go back. Let me go back. Let me go back. And then let me go to work my screen, go let me see. Okay. See, even I have, what happens is you have multiple screens. So I'm going to go to Facebook. I'll go to LinkedIn. I'll share it on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is changing their events. I don't know if anybody else received this. I don't know if anybody else received this notification in their Airbus, but LinkedIn events are changing 21 hours ago. They mentioned the change. So it's going to be a it's going to be, it's going to be they're removing something. I'll have to bring it up. Yeah, it's a hyperlink. Yeah. Thanks Jay. Gabe. I'll share this in a post. There you go. Kids run me all post. So at least you can go there that view that post. And then you can grab it. So then you can just click on the link. Boom. It'll take you right there. Easy peasy. Then I said, breezy. I hope that's helpful. Did you find that valuable or entertaining? All those invites? Nobody could see your streams unless they attend. Yes. Yeah, it's really I received an email from LinkedIn that they had changing their events. You got the email. So did you understand what it actually means? I did like the events, the way they were had them. They'd been sketchy. They'd been sketchy. Thanks for the. Okay, appreciate that. Okay. Thank you. Glad that's changing. Worst part was the change to events from profile posts. Yeah. Yeah. Your streams will be more. Do you think there'll be more visible? Do you think it'll help? Do you think. What do you think, Gabe? What do you think, DJ? All good. Yeah. Yeah. Look, join me. Elise. I'd love to have you join me. I've been really busy, so I haven't really put it out there a whole lot. Hey, gotta run. Rob. Got to run. Thank you so much. Love you, man. Take care. Talk soon. Anyway, we're all on a journey. The big, the bigger point, the bigger scale of things is that we're all on a journey. We're all working through this stuff, helping each other out. One of the things I love to do is research and build systems to help optimize our time. As much as possible video is incredibly powerful to actually accelerate. And put in place some of the things that we have to share and our message, our systems, whatever we're selling, whatever we're promoting, whatever we need to do in order to enjoy life. And I just encourage everyone to think about how can I improve what I'm doing, how I'm doing it and what it is that it takes to get it. Because we can all run around with our hair. Hair on fire happened to me. I don't know about you, but it's really one of these things that we have an opportunity to improve on and you just need to ask for help sometimes. So it's really a simple equation. So join me anytime. I love that. So your pool notifications and individuals finding your stream was less. Yes. Got it. Invites and accepted. Got notified. You would go live only if they accepted though. So perhaps they could make lives searchable. Wow. That would be cool. It's like I not a week goes by that somebody doesn't ask me, how do I find your live? It's like, how do I find your stuff? I don't maybe you could go to YouTube. I don't know. That's not true, but anyway, thank you so much for being here. I love you all. And I appreciate the fact that you joined in and thank you for thinking or considering about the #PirateSyndicate. I'm really excited about the future. I'm excited about what's taken place and I will continue to support the community. I'll continue to show up because you are awesome and #kindnessiscool smiles are free. So you #enjoytheday. Be well.
