Rank #1: Ep. 260 - Gary Vaynerchuk: Set a Flag on YOUR Thing.
"If you do not do what you love, that’s on you," Gary said. Years ago, no one believed you could choose yourself. You needed gatekeepers. Now we have YouTube, Instagram. “Now it’s the standard,” Gary said. If you cut out all the reason why you can't do something, then you cut out all the infrastructural and financial problems stopping you. "The only thing left is your f-cking head." Gary set up this example (and this podcast is full of them): Pokemon. Imagine this is your passion. First, you blog. Then it becomes a video blog. Then a podcast. “Let's say you become the foremost Pokemon gal, 'Sally the Pokemon Gal.' You’re owning it. You go to Comic-Con, you get random sponsorships on your blog. You’re getting by. And then, Pokemon-GO comes out. Now you're on CNN and FOX. You’re getting paid $5,000 to give a talk. The world has just walked in to you." That's key. "Everybody who’s listening right now is looking for trends. They’re trying to walk to where the world is now and by the time they get there, the world moved on. If you go to your thing and set a f-cking flag on your thing, the world comes to you."

Rank #2: Ep. 281 - Tim Ferriss: Using a New Lens To Make Life Easier.
Tim’s doing a new experiment. (I’m not surprised.) He’s looking at people and asking himself one question... “What happened to this person?" He said, “Normal people are just folks you don’t know well enough yet, right? Nobody's normal. We’re so full of stuff and trauma and nonsense and silly beliefs. Everyone’s a work in progress and since you’re a work in progress, it’s very hard to know yourself.” He gave me an example. But didn’t name names. “There was this woman who had some very peculiar emotions. It turned out that she had watched her father beat her mother into unconsciousness on multiple occasions… knocked out, unconscious, on the floor. And that was just the tip of the iceberg.” She’s acting in response to her past. Not her present. I think that’s what Tim means when he said, “we're cause and effect collection machines.” And that’s really where advice comes from… the intersection between cause, effect, and hindsight. I feel Tim’s really mastered this new intersection. He’s embracing being “a work in progress.” That’s what makes his new book so relatable. It’s called “Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World.” He reached out to Matt Ridley, Stephen Pressfield, Dustin Moskovitz, Naval Ravikant, Patton Oswalt, Susan Cain, Ben Stiller, Annie Duke… the list goes on and on. (But don’t worry! I’m in the next book, “Tribe of ALMOST Mentors”). Each person in the book dissects their success. They slice it open, dig through the guts and give you the heart. They show you HOW they became a peak performer. And the best part is it’s all through Tim’s lens.

In episode #600, Eric and Neil explain how you can generate traffic on Instagram. Tune in to hear how you can leverage social media in order to grow your business. TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES: [00:27] Today’s Topic: How to Generate Traffic From Instagram When You Have No Followers [00:40] Make sure you’re using the right tags. [00:43] There are tools like RiteTags to help you with this. [01:04] Promote your Instagram on your other social accounts. [01:10] Get the most engaged people to follow you. [01:18] The more engaged your followers, the more viral your post will end up being. [01:28] Eric finds the most engaged users in his industry and engages them on social media. [01:52] Start doing stories and when people watch, get them to go to your website. [02:13] Instagram Pods are a way of getting people together and like each other’s posts. [02:57] Eric likes Unity Influence, which is a platform where you can find influencers (NOTE: Eric has invested in this company). [03:22] When someone likes 20 pictures all at once, it doesn’t have as great an effect. If someone likes your photo and nothing else, your post will get a bigger bump. [03:54] Eric hired a company that kept reposting other people’s motivational quotes and doing power likes. [04:05] This doesn’t actually add value, so if you’re going to do something like that, you may as well use Canva. [04:25] You also need to have the right content that caters to your target audience. [04:32] Also, consider buying another Instagram account. [04:45] The account that you buy doesn’t have to be active before you buy it, but it should be in your field. [05:20] That’s it for today!
