SDN EP 122: Five Good Things To Come Out of the Pandemic

Spread the love

What silver linings came out of the COVID-19 pandemic for you? In the past two years, we've dealt with so many negative things, yet as we choose to see the positive aspects, we realize that there's good to be found in a bad situation.

Tune in to learn more ? watch the full episode of Stop Doing NothingFive Good Things To Come Out of the Pandemic with Patrick Allmond.

What You Will Discover:

#1: We became more independent and learned some new skills.

Many people drive to and from work every day, almost living on the highway. The global crisis has given us a liberation of sorts — that there's a way we can make money that is not dependent on our physical location. Learning a new skill or starting a side business doing the things that we love also taught us how it's not really required to spend the 9 to 5 in a cubicle or a conference room.


#2: We became better at technology. People like my mom and the others who consider themselves "technophobes" suddenly had to take advantage of their devices. Companies like Apple, Samsung, Dell and Microsoft have been making technology better and better for us over the years to make our lives easier, and they drop in cool features, which we use sometimes. But all of a sudden, we had to use those features more. So my mom had to learn how to buy our groceries and make video calls. We were forced to learn to do things that were just optional before.


#3 Companies, governmental organizations and service providers got better at delivering solutions. Those that dabble in the world of online ordering and product delivery had to get good, really fast, and everything you needed was delivered to your doorstep every single day. What used to be just a convenient option became necessities.


#4 People became a little bit nicer and more understanding towards each other. We're all going through some stressful things, and as people were able to take a deep breath, everyone has had a sense that if it's just hard for me, it's as difficult for everyone else.


#5 Technology-savvy people become rock stars. At the beginning of 2020, I dumped a good chunk of money to make a decent home studio. (I know you may have done so, too!) I noticed that many asked about the skills I have. I would be on Zoom calls with other entrepreneurs, professional speakers and other people working from home, and I would get asked a lot of times: 

  • How do I have good looking Zoom calls?
  • How do I share documents?
  • How do I collaborate on spreadsheets and word documents remotely?
  • How do I share my screen so I can do remote training?
  • How can I stand up and wear a microphone to teach the group of 50 people from my home office?

Suddenly there was a lot of demand for people like me who were really good at technology. Since 2020 it has become our time to shine. Suddenly, we became educators of technology and showed people how they could do things online.

SDN EP 121: How To Survive The Pandemic Blues

Spread the love

As the end of the pandemic becomes more uncertain, that doesn’t mean normal life has to stop. A mindset shift and a little bit of self-care can go a long way to lessen its negative impact on your life.

Tune in to learn more ? watch the full episode of Stop Doing NothingHow to Survive the Pandemic Blues with Patrick Allmond.

What You Will Discover:

?? Are you constantly worrying about the pandemic? Remember: major life events don’t have a definitive endpoint. Taking responsibility by practicing social spacing and getting vaccinated is the first step to positively accepting the new normal.

?? Pay attention to what is happening. We often overthink and assume everything will turn into a disaster, but once we observe and allow it to happen to us, we realize it isn’t that big of a deal. Don’t forget that we’re living in the most convenient time in our world’s history.

?? Safely return to a level of normalcy in your life as soon as possible. Whether it’s getting a coffee or going for a run, there is a way to continue doing the things you love while protecting yourself. Wear a mask and ease back into your social and outdoor habits.

?? Now is the best time to start a side hustle. Or a career change. Working from home has afforded us more free time and flexibility. If you’re bored or want something different, become an entrepreneur.

?? If working remotely is working best for you, talk to your boss. Find a position wherein you can make money using your brain. Think of how you can contribute to your company with your ideas and thoughts.

??Get through by spending more time with family. In these difficult times, you either stay afraid or come out with stronger, better relationships. Getting sick seems inevitable, but your loved ones need you now more than ever.

SDN EP 120: How To Differentiate Yourself Online With Phil Gerbyshak and Beth Ziesenis

Spread the love

If you're sitting at the airport and you got cool socks on, people can't help but notice. Not everybody can be unique, funky and have the courage to stand out from everybody else.

This is the same truth that applies to your personal branding. How do you stand out?

Tune in to learn more ? watch the full episode of Stop Doing Nothing How To Differentiate Yourself Online With Phil Gerbyshak and Beth Ziesenis.

What You Will Discover:

??  The start of real conversations is the very beginning of the funnel. What makes the best conversation starters are things that you love to use or wear and show your brand. These have become talking points that establish relationships with people who may need our products or services now or in the future.

??   If you're someone selling YOU, be the person they buy at all times. Whether online or offline, you are the billboard of the brand you seek to establish. How do you get comfortable living up to it?

SDN EP 119: How To Get More Views On Your YouTube and Podcast Shows

Spread the love

If you're looking to amp up your omnipresence in the world wide web this new year, it pays to know which tools work, which helps save you a lot of keystrokes and makes repurposing content easier.

Tune in to learn more ? watch the full episode of Stop Doing NothingContent Promotion, Syndication and Distribution with Phil Gerbyshak.

What You Will Discover:

?? Do you make your content work hard for you? The open secret of achieving that is content automation. Leverage your webinars and other long-form content and break them down strategically into smaller ones such as posts, articles, infographics, and podcasts.

?? Treat your content like how real-world TV shows work. Think of it this way: you record, and the camera stops. After airing or getting broadcasted, nobody will ever see it again if you do nothing. See what shows such as what Saturday Night Live does. They'll slice it, and they'll dice it, and they'll put it on their Instagram and Facebook accounts and their YouTube channel. They'll probably put it on their NBC website and blog.

It would be best to treat your content distribution seriously to get the right people to see and reach out to you.

?? Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, TikTok, you name it. How do you ensure that your content goes in these and everywhere else? Social Selling Expert Phil Gerbyshak reminds the importance of repurposing, repackaging and reformulating content that fits best on these platforms.

?? Create a balance of evergreen content and some that are avocado that means fresh. Consumers prefer reading or consuming stuff that is current but also consider that even old posts will find their way into your audience as long as they stay relevant.

?? Setting aside some money is becoming a necessity to share content in front of not just eyeballs — but the right eyeballs.

Who's your target? Who are the best people who need your products and services? Because frankly, you wouldn't want virality, but real conversations and cash flow.

?? We've seen red flags of what happens when social media goes down. While Facebook still has the most users on the internet, getting billions of eyeballs every single day — be reminded that it's always an excellent plan to diversify your ad spend and social sharing.

?? Fantastic tools for repurposing content. Phil has recommended Agorapulse as his social media management tool for six years. Otter.ai to do transcripts (the transcription engine behind Zoom, as well.) Kapwing video reformatting and editing,  Grammarly online writing assistant and Text Expander to speed up typing.
