Q&A on cultivating what’s important, starting a podcast, managing anxiety when public speaking and the money conversation
Giants welcome to episode #65 — a special, first ever solo Q&A episode with yours truly to end 2018. Questions submitted by you the listeners. I’ve curated the top 8 based on the most similar questions asked, and also the ones I felt would be the most widely useful or applicable.
To help you skip to the answer most relevant to you, as I know many of you are time poor, I’ll list all the questions out below.
The eight questions I’ve answered in order are:
Q1. Any recommendations for working out what is truly important to each of us?
Q2. Would you stay in a smaller job market to keep your relationship, or venture out on your own?
Q3. Any advice for starting one's own podcast?
Q4. What is your go-to breakfast?
Q5. I often get anxious when speaking in public. Do you have any advice for overcoming this?
Q6. The money conversation with clients always scares me. I’m scared if I charge what I really want, they’ll say no and I won’t get their business at all, but if I charge too low that becomes the expected fee moving forward. What can I do to break this cycle?
Q7. With the vast number of interviews you’ve been able to do, have you seen a common thread in responses from interviewees?
Q8. How do you manage pursuing creative or entrepreneurial goals while keeping up with personal commitments?
So they are the 8 questions I’ve attempted to answer. By all means take it with a grain of salt. It’s my two cents and subjective at the end of the day. But I do hope it’s helpful and if you’d like me to do more of these, let me know on Instagram via a DM to my handle: TheGiantThinker
