I recently decided to relaunch my Podcast here at Make Your Mark. I’m not even completely sure why I took a break, other than I knew I was moving in a direction that wasn’t true to who I am or where I want to go.
The interviews are stellar. The guests are stellar. But overall it was quite vanilla. I had another show where top entrepreneurs are interviewed about their experiences and all that jazz.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s good stuff. My guests are remarkable and it’s up to the host to guide the show in one direction or another. I didn’t like the direction I was taking it.
For me it was boring. I knew it was – I just wanted to put a show together and so I did. I guess sometimes you just have to jump in as opposed to thinking about shit for months on end and then never doing anything.
Here’s the deal. I’d rather eat a sandwich than do most anything. Few things entertain me or stand out anymore. It’s sheep following a lead sheep who entered the field first. Even the lead sheep is often boring as shit and vanilla, but because of his or her success, the other sheep follow along making minor adjustments to a formula but in all reality just cloning the first sheep.
Admittedly, I felt like one of the herd.
So what do I do?
I’m not sure to be honest. I’m interested in uncommon advertising and people doing remarkable shit. I’m interested in the people you hear very little from, but who are making their mark and turning left when the herd goes right.
I want to inspire you to go on your own path. A path carved out by you.
So here we go. Make Your Mark round 2.
And that’s all I have to say about that.
