That’s what he told me.
I was having lunch with one of my mentors, Brad. I had just finished telling him that I “really LOVED making interview podcasts, and learning from people farther along than me.” However, I felt like I couldn’t do it because I “didn’t already have an audience”. And then he said it. And it’s the same thing I’ll tell you:
You have a voice!
You may be thinking the same thing I was: “I do?” Recent offerings like Michael Hyatt’s Platform book assume that you at least have something to say.
It doesn’t mean:
- That your point of view doesn’t matter.
- That someone somewhere isn’t listening, even when you least expect it.
- That everyone started somewhere. And having even a few people care about what you say makes a big difference.
And that’s ultimately what I’ve learned, as well. If I have a voice, I’d love for it to be a catalog or collection of all the awesome advice I’ve gotten from people way further along than I am. And maybe, it’ll help you too. But I don’t want this to be a one-way conversation.
So, if you immediately had an audience of 1000s of people….what would you say to them? Leave a comment below!
