When I recorded my first episode about 5-7 weeks ago, I knew I wanted to immerse myself into the world of podcasting. I was so nervous to record that first episode, but I’m so glad I did. A couple weeks after that, I launched the Risk Without Regret podcast on iTunes and I was humbled by how many people around the world cared about it. As soon as the first few episodes went live, I knew I was going to do a recap of everything after the first month. Well, here it is.
I start the episode off with a couple books I am in love with (Steal Like an Artist and How to Win Friends & Influence Others), then I lead into some stats over the past month. I’m really excited with how well everything is going, which just fuels my passion for all of this even more. And almost daily, people are commenting about it, or sending me messages on Facebook, or sharing on Twitter, or calling/texting me about it. I try not to have any regrets in life, but if I had to have one, it would be that I wish I started all of this sooner. But here we are, one month in, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the RWR podcast!

Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative – This is the latest book I’ve read and I highly recommend it, especially if you’re a creative person like myself. Author Austin Kleon put together this easy to read manifesto about what it’s like to be a creative in this day in age, and how nothing is original anymore. Stop trying to create the next Facebook out there. Find something you love, look at people doing things you want to do, study them, collect some of their ideas, and remix it with your style and personality. I finished this one in just a few hours, so you can easily digest this in an afternoon. Read more reviews here…
How to Win Friends & Influence People – I’m currently reading this book and it’s hard to put it down. Every chapter makes me think about people in a new way. I need to stop thinking about just what I want, and think more about how I can help others while still getting what I want. No one cares what I want, and you should stop trying to get them to care. The tried and true advice in this book, from over 75 years ago, will help you think differently and change the way you treat others. This is one of the most recommended books among entrepreneurs all around the world. See why here…
Thanks again for listening and reading the show notes. Be sure to leave me a review on iTunes and I can’t wait to share the next episode with you soon. Until next time, think less, risk more, regret nothing!
