0:00 Do you ever feel compelled to rush throughout your day to get more stuff done? What about hustling when you know you don't even need to do that? If you've experienced either of these, you're gonna want to lean in and turn up the volume on today's episode because our guest, Savanna Schiavo is going to help us ditch the hustle and reprogram the rush. 1:09 About Savanna Schiavo2:25 Savanna’s life before becoming a life and confidence coach.5:55 Why hustle and rush often creep into our lives and how conditioning, culture, and our internal desires inform these activities.“Hustle and rush are coming from a place of fear, and a place of lack. It's us acting out of fear of not-enoughness essentially.” - Savanna Schiavo11:06 The correlation between fear of lack and confidence.11:59 “When we're taking actions from the place of hustle and rush, it's blocking our confidence. It's blocking our creativity, our energy, our ability to flow, our ability to relax and tap into our gifts." - Savanna Schiavo 13:18 “To access more confidence in our business, we have to solve for the fear that's been driving our business. We need to look at the fear that is keeping us from feeling competent.” - Savanna Schiavo14:45  How business owners can tap into and reprogram fear so it works for us and it becomes something positive versus staying stuck in that negative emotion.15:32  What do you believe is keeping you going all the time? What are the beliefs that have been driving this behavior for me?16:10 Common beliefs we don’t even notice that we think are true.17:19  Question 2: Is this true?19:30 Question 3: If you didn't believe this, what would be different about you? What you're doing is showing yourself, your subconscious mind, what would be available to you, if you decided to let go of this optional belief, and practice and open up to new beliefs. 22:02 How do we share ourselves, share our messages and attract the right people into our businesses using social media as a tool rather than a place to feel bad about ourselves?23:11 On attracting the right people by being magnetic.26:05 Savana’s favorite way to create content  27:10  “I let myself be the really imperfect human I am so people really get to see me. I think that's what is so powerful.” - Savanna Schiavo29:06 Connect with Savanna30:36 Grab Savanna’s journaling prompts inside the Arena of Awesome Group and share your biggest takeaways. ----------------------------Ready to unearth the GOLD in your content?Grab the Content Gold Mining Maps & Audio Series today See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

0:03  As a transformation maker - a coach, a consultant, a course creator - you're creating an awful lot of content. Let me ask you a very candid question. Does all of that content equal cash for you? 0:23 Until fairly recently, Yong didn’t have a process for monetizing her content. Because she had so much content out there, there was not a lot of reason for people to actually hire her to help them do the things that I was teaching because they could go figure it all out for free. 1:21 What Yong did instead of Gary Vee Style Content Repurposing and how it turned into her signature 3-Step Framework to Turn Content into Cash 3:16 Today's episode topic: Yong’s three-step framework to turn your content [yep, that content you have already created] into cash. 4:14 Things you could do with all that extra cash, especially with summer right around the corner4:55 Today’s topic isn’t one that’s talked about often which is exactly why you need to tune in and listen or watch the video version inside the Arena of Awesome5:15 If you haven't listened to the Myth of More [#333] or Content Gold Mining versus the traditional Gary Vee style content repurposing [#334] be sure to do so as they lay the foundation for today’s episode5:40 How Yong’s Nevada roots influenced and helped shape the idea of Content Gold Mining | The Low-Hanging Fruit for most content creators that has them flocking to Gary Vee Style Content Repurposing7:36 One of the downfalls of the Gary Vee Content Repurposing Method9:26  Surface level versus underground gold mining10:53 The good news for you as a content gold miner11:41 In order to turn your content into cash, all you have to do is D. I. G..  If you can remember that simple phrase, you literally have a way to monetize your content. 12:21 When you try out this framework in your business, be sure to share your questions, successes, and more with Yong at www.Yong Pratt.com/335 or inside the  Arena of Awesome13:17  Step 1 in the D.I.G. Framework: D = Discover + How to enlist the help of the kids in your life to help you complete this step13:47 Need ideas on where to find kids and questions to ask to delegate the Discovery Process? Head to www.Yong Pratt.com/335 and ask Yong14:49 One of the many benefits of joining Yong inside the Arena of Awesome 15:15  What the Discover phase entails | a simple tool you can use for yourself and Yong’s examples“The Discover Phase of the D.I.G. Framework allows you to see ALL your content gathered in one singular place. It’s often the first time my clients have seen just how much content they’ve actually created and it’s often an emotional experience in the best of ways.” - Yong Pratt18:30 What you’ll likely notice during the Discovery Process 19:21 The reaction Yong’s clients have every.single.time. She takes them through this Discovery Process20:56 An everyday example of what the Discovery Process is like 21:14  Step 1 in the D.I.G. Framework:  I = Ideate and why it’s so exciting22:15 How Yong used the Ideate Process to publish her first book 24:40 The focus of Yong’s first book25:54 “I want to simplify the process, because that's one of my superpowers - Simplify the complicated.” - Yong Pratt27:49 “In the ideation phase of the D.I.G Framework, there's no right or wrong. There's no one size fits all. You are unique. Your content is unique. And when you ideate and use your imagination to create, the possibilities are absolutely endless.” - Yong Pratt28:22 Two additional ways Yong has used the Ideate Process herself and how you may be able to use it as well 29:27 “Because creation is not linear, you can take content that was once free and turn it into a paid offer that’s organized and delivered in a succinct way to get maximum results for your client.” - Yong Pratt30:44 Inside Yong’s signature experience, Your Content Goldmine™, her six-month mentorship program coming up soon, you'll see bits and pieces of how she’s been able to ideate on her content.

0:01 I fell for it. Hook, line, and sinker. I was once drawn into the world where MORE became my motto. I wore it like a badge of honor. I was always striving to be more, do more and create more. I stopped listening to the many signs my body was telling me to slow down on my quest for more. Ignoring those signals, landed me in the hospital for test after test, and ultimately being sent home, hooked to a heart monitor for days. The allure of more is a strong force, and few make it out unscathed. In today's episode, I'm going to share how I've made it to the other side of more, and how I can help you do the same...but only if you're ready to embrace a world where less is the new norm? 1:44 Here at Amplify Your Awesome™, we help course creators and coaches ditch content overwhelm, tap into endless supplies of social media content, and make money from the content they've already created. 2:22 Today we're diving into Content Gold Mining versus "Gary Vee" style content repurposing. It's a question I've been getting a lot of lately, so I wanted to, well, set the record straight. 2:37 If you haven't already listened to the last episode number 333. The Myth of More, I highly recommend you press pause and take a listen to that tale before continuing with this episode at www.yongpratt.com/333 2:56 That time when Yong stood firmly in the belief that repurposing content was THE marketing strategy everyone needed to use…3:21 How Yong used 3 content repurposing automation tools to replace her full-time Virtual Assistant 3:42 When I talk about content repurposing, or the traditional "Gary Vee" style content repurposing the way it's talked about these days, here's what I mean. “Traditional, “Gary Vee” Style Content Repurposing the act of taking a large piece of content and extracting smaller chunks which you can then share.” - Yong Pratt4:18 Reason #1 for “Gary Vee” Style Content Repurposing Number one: it looks like you're everywhere. And number two: one can more easily establish their expertise by having more of these smaller pieces of content. 5:02 The reason why traditional “Gary Vee” style content repurposing is costing you money. 5:33  What you need in place to get hundreds of pieces of content6:12 Opportunity #1 Yong experienced by promoting and advocating for the use of 3 content repurposing tools 6:33 Opportunity #2 Yong experienced by promoting and advocating for the use of 3 content repurposing tools 7:10 That time when things started to crumble before Yong’s eyes 7:31 Some reasons why traditional “Gary Vee” style content repurposing didn’t work for my clients 8:15 The Two Myths Yong uses to describe traditional "Gary Vee" style content repurposing 8:41 The weight of Yong’s 1000s upon 1000s of pieces of content and its opportunity cost 9:42 The lesson Yong learned from training Freebie seekers and the money it cost 10:21 That time when Yong has months and months of social media posts pre-scheduled turned into social media dormancy 10:59 What Yong discovered during that social media dormancy  11:50  The tool Yong used to FINALLY be able to see all her beautiful content 12:45 What Yong recommends you do today with all YOUR awesome content 13:26 The patterns that emerged and the questions Yong began to ponder regarding her discovery 14:28 “Instead of focusing on transforming one piece of content into hundreds using the “Gary Vee” method of content repurposing, Content Gold Mining™ offers you many ways to monetize all your beautiful content.” - Yong Pratt 15:05 “Right now, at this moment, you have endless gifts you could offer to the world and get paid for doing so.” - Yong Pratt 15:24 Questions to ponder and experiment with starting today…15:32 What have you stopped creating content today? For a week? Or even a month? 15:38 What if you reinvested some of that creation time into unearthing the gold from your own content goldmine? 15:47 What if you could turn your massive amounts of content into endless streams of income? 15:55  What if you could tap into that Gold Mine every time you wanted or needed to:Take a family vacation Hire a virtual assistant to help you put systems in place so that you could sell all the content that you want unearth. Hire someone to clean your house, do yard work, prep your meals and so much more so that you could free up time to spend with those you love? What about retire your parents or spouse? And this is just the tip of the iceberg of what you could experience by mining for the gold in your content. 16:25 A testimonial Yong got after a Content Gold Mining Session with 1:1 Client, Susan""Wow, just wow. Yong certainly knows her stuff and the potency of content, namely your content. She quickly and effortlessly walks you through the value of your current content. She offers amazing options on delivering your hard work and talent found in your content and monetizing them as you offer your prospects irresistible offers. It's an emotional moment, when you realize your content can be massaged into other platforms to help others you must work with Yong."17:42 “Monetizing content is where traditional style or "Gary Vee" style content repurposing really misses the mark. Its real focus has been on visibility and exposure, neither of which is a guarantee for sales.” - Yong Pratt 18:42 Wouldn't your time be better spent monetizing the content you already have? 18:48 What if it didn't have to be either-or? 18:52 If you could create endless content for social media, and endless streams of income from the content you already have, without the overwhelm? Would you want to know how to do it? 19:06  You my friend absolutely deserve to have both! And the time to make it happen is now. The doors to Your Content Gold Mine™, my six-month mentorship will be opening up soon, and I'd love to be your guide on this amazing adventure. 19:22 What’s included inside Yong’s 6-Month Mentorship19:46  So my friend…If creating less content appeals to you…If monetizing the content you already have appeals to you…If having documented systems and processes to mine for the gold in your content appeals to you... If scaling or staffing your business appeals to you....If seeing all the possibilities in your awesome content appeals to you, then Your Content Gold Mine™ might be for you. 20:19 Let's talk about you and your awesome content.

Content was more than plentiful, and everyone's cup runneth over. And the allure of more was all-consuming.” - Yong Pratt 4:01 Leaving the magical world...just for a little while 4:15 How the MORE-NESS she’d magicked did not fill her money bags as she was lured into believing 4:47 Feeling distraught, she began to wonder where she went wrong. 4:53  How following the rules and creating MORE ultimately led to LESS5:22  How retreating back into her pre-content repurposing world, helped the overwhelmed business owner discover her real self once again5:44 The shocking discovery the overwhelmed business owner made6:20 How the overwhelmed business owner left overwhelmed behind and how she uses the lessons she’s learned to help others overcome their quest for MORE.8:27  The Brave New World where business owners stand shoulder to shoulder embracing the power of LESS8:58  A happily ever after that can be yours, too.9:09 The Myth of More does not have to be your reality.

0:00 Do you ever wish you could pack up your suitcase, travel the world, and run your business from anywhere? Well, that's exactly what our guest today did with her family. Jessica Klasnick was living the American dream. However, she wanted more time with her family. So they sold everything, downsized, and traveled in a teeny, tiny RV as a family of five. Over the past five years, they've been recalculating what happiness means to them, breaking away from those societal norms of how life should be, and intentionally living life each day on purpose. Jessica doesn't teach you how to recreate her best life. She teaches you how to discover your own. 2:42 Discover what Jessica and her family were doing before they decided to travel with her family4:21 How living the same day in and day out, being home with the kids, and not seeing her husband daily were catalysts to traveling with her family 6:38 How Jessica’s family reacted when she shared their plans for travel8:10 Did Jessica ever think leaving everything behind to travel was a mistake? 10:47 How Jessica’s kids reacted to traveling12:24 Discovering and becoming a life coach. 14:35 The people Jessica loves to work with as a coach17:39 How a new perspective is exactly what we need 18:09 Attracting the right people into her world19:18 Jessica’s favorite ways to create content 20:53 The 4-letter word we need to banish from business24:29 Jessica’s philosophy on business26:38 “I just don't want you having fun all day, but not making the money you want or having the relationship you want. I want you to have all of that. And that's when you know you're really doing it right.”27:58 Jessica’s “Thought Drop” morning ritual29:47 Connect with Jessica www.JessicaKlasnick.comwww.RecalculatingHappiness.com 31:43  “I love that we talk about our own awesomeness because so often, because we live with ourselves, we don't even realize all of our gifts and all of these really unique things that we have. And so I would say the biggest tip, and this is a challenge is to figure out what you want, decide that you want it, and then not worry how you're going to get it. But start taking one step in the direction of that, that that dream or that desire. And just really give up on having to have that control of how do I get there.” 33:27 “Don't let being uncomfortable, be the reason you don't make a change.”34:49 Wanna watch the VIDEO version of this episode and ask Jessica your questions?

0:00 Discover the reasons behind our color rebrand and why it’s happening inside my Facebook Community, Arena of Awesome2:10 Meet today’s guest, Visibility and Publicity Expert, Michelle Lewis.2:53 The surprising results from digging into color psychology inside my FB Group3:22 “I don't think color psychology is focused on enough in our industry. Things are so revolved around us being told to choose the expression of ourselves in our brand, especially with our color and this conversation is to totally contradict that.”4:05 Michelle’s pre-business life in Hollywood5:22 The two sides to Hollywood, negativity, and believing the voices around us7:46 Why and how Michelle stopped listening to the voices outside herself that were dragging her down and shattering the Glass Dome “I believe we've built a dome around ourselves with other people's thoughts, opinions, and negative statements. You really have to have the bravery to break down that dome and build something from the ground up. It's not going to be easy. It's about having the inner confidence to not care anymore what other people have to say or what their opinion of you is because you not only value yourself but your health too much.”10:20 Working with her hubby and behind the scenes on how they met11:17 How business owners can embrace color and the psychology behind color to help us stand out and be more visible“I think that color is such an important part, if not one of the most important parts of the visual brand.”“Color psychology is a really powerful strategy so that you can attract the right people.”12:52 Returning to her film degree background, and natural medicine, and color frequency“What helped me understand color was having a brand that wasn't working and knowing that I had good things to offer. So it had to be something in the branding or in the marketing strategy.”“We have this delusion that our brand color is about us. It's supposed to be about the ideal client.”14:40 Why Michelle chose blue as her primary brand color and why you may want to as well16:56 The psychology of yellow (the new primary brand color here at Amplify Your Awesome™) and how Yong’s 14-year old created a mood board to reflect the new colors19:31 What’s your perfect color? Take Michelle’s brand quiz at www.VisibilityVixen.com/colorquiz and them come share your results inside of the Arena of Awesome22:01 The surprising advice Michelle share on researching brand colors for yourself“Color psychology drives a lot behind your brand, the products you create, and how you communicate with your customers.” 23:28 Once you’ve taken the brand color quiz, here’s Michelle’s top tip on what to do next25:21 Come share your biggest takeaways and ahas from today’s episode with Michelle inside the Arena of Awesome.

I don't have to follow the rules. When I break the rules and do things my own way and show up as my goofy, weird self, it's actually better because people get to see the real me”7:00 How Yong’s self-doubt nearly ended her entrepreneurial dreams “One of my greatest gifts to all of you is to make you look good.”8:31 About the Arena of Awesome“As business owners, we need to be confident enough to stand in that center stage. In the spotlight, sharing our gifts. Sharing our weirdness, so that people who need us are going to be able to find us when they are looking. It's about that exchange of energy. About knowing that you're putting your best foot forward and that we can move forward together.”9:47 The explosion of podcasting and why having your own can be a gift for others 10:09 Reasons why Yong loves podcasting“What if you and your business are able to provide the opportunity for other people to binge listen to you to help them move closer to working with you. To be in your brilliance. To be in your awesomeness.”“Podcasting is a powerful connection tool. It's a powerful sales tool. It's a powerful tool to get your message out to the masses, especially because it is portable.”12:50 How Leaving breaking your long content into little nuggets, breadcrumbs [aka repurposing] can help more people discover your awesomeness 13:41 Business owners are literally sitting on a goldmine of content. I'm here, as the Chief Amplifier of Awesomeness, to help you mine for the gold in your content through systems, through automation, through repurposing.” “If we can spin and transform our content into other assets, it gives people diverse ways to learn from us and that’s a win-win in my book for sure.” 15:38 How acres of diamonds are like your content goldmine “You literally are sitting on this goldmine of content. All you need is to create a system and a path for you and your business to mine for that gold in a way that's going to support you and your clients.”16:24 Why the idea of mining for the gold in your content is so near and dear to Yong “You have this huge mountain of content. It's massive. It's not just one piece, it's your literal body of work in your business. It’s time to mine for the gold that already exists in your content.”19:00  “For me, 2021 is all about helping YOU mine for the gold in YOUR content.” 20:18 A special gift for you coming on St. Patty’s day and why that day is significant to its release21:12 “Human Design has impacted my business in really profound ways. In ways I've never considered, like using it to work with my clients.”21:56 “Human Design helps us understand our innate gifts so that when we're mining for the gold in our content, we can use our strengths to really amplify all of our awesomeness.” 25:09 “Season 5 of the podcast exists to showcase the myriad of ways you can build your business. It’s not about building your business following someone else’s blueprint, following someone else’s path to success. It’s about hearing stories from and being inspired by entrepreneurs across the globe building businesses around everything that makes them awesome.”26:58 Come over to the Arena of Awesome and tell me how I can support you as you take to center stage to Amplify Your Awesome™!

Your energy to get to alignment.15:03  Alignment through Human Design “When things are flowing, when you feel lit up, when all the doors that you want open up effortlessly, and you get the thing you desire, you know, you're in alignment.
