    I’ve been working on decluttering my home to have less stuff to manage.

    I started a podcast from scratch in an untapped market just over two years ago. It’s been challenging to get it recognized because nobody has done this in the industry I am in so lots of the help on the Internet regarding how to launch a podcast didn’t always directly translate. With an established presence now I am under taking trying to build a YouTube presence but I need to go full-time with the podcast but I do not currently have the financial capability to do so with two children under the age of three. But I am going to tackle this question and see What going full-time on the podcast and building the YouTube presence will look like if it were easy. Thanks for all the help Pat! Your channel has been one of the most helpful that I have found in my journey of entrepreneurship and podcasting

    One of the biggest lessons I find myself always circling back to. I find it interesting how often our brains start adding complexities before we master the fundamentals.

    A nice piece … I’m reading the War of Art .. they are revolving around the same thing ✌️

    This is really helpful, Pat. To answer the question at the end, I’ll use this question/approach on a class creation process I’m doing for my channel currently. Thank you!

    My main focus at the moment is growing my YouTube channel. It’s become a lot easier filming and editing. Still working on the growing the channel part. Working on other options / channels as well. Hopefully that will get easier, too.

    Great thoughts Pat! I recently finished a book by Jon Acuff where he talks about the 1% of the goal. Love it when I hear similar wisdom with moments of each other. I’m getting ready to build a concrete porch with the help of some friends. Ready to simplify!

    Thanks Pat – SUCH A GREAT MESSAGE! Keep crushing it brother!

    Makes such good sense! Putting my online course out there of course!

    Exactly where I’m at, thank you Pat. My project: Restarting my church after losing half the people over the last 24 months. Solution: do what people love. Simple church. Acoustic worship, discipleship on zoom. Topic: Healing and Peace after the storm.

    Pat, congratulations on 300k subs. Yes, a great question. I have several things I need to trim to make things easy.
