Episode 9: Can You Be A Parent & Entrepreneur? How Greg Creates Content and How It Can Help You Too
Updated: Feb 25, 2019
So I’m not a father yet, definitely someday. One thing I’ve heard from a lot of my listeners and friends has been a question of how we go after our dreams while we have a family at risk with our financial and time management. Gregory Schurman is a friend of mine that I used to work sales with and we have both been close in communication hustling to go after what we want. About 2 years ago Greg had his first kid and is still busting his ass to grow in the video and content creation field and is really starting to get some traction. I wanted to talk about his story and how he combats his fears and families fears about him pursuing his passion while taking care of his family.
Another point we tackle is how useful and impactful content and social media can play in their business, their brand, or their dream. Creating video, photo, or audio content that coincide with your vision or your dream can help you meet and form a relationship with your customers or community before they have met you. We buy from brands we know and trust, we as human beings are no different in that way. The podcast has been my first form of content and in 1 season of 10 episodes its made a huge impact on me going in depth with other people doing similar things that I do and creating a community around it to work together to tackle this stuff.
