I've been spending most of this week clearing up projects getting ready for a new year. I'm so excited about the plans I have for Good Morning Gwinnett. I will be moving going into the studio to broadcast the show live from there starting on Monday. This is a big move for me, because I've gotten so comfortable working from home, now I have to create a new habit of getting out of the house by 8:30 so that I will have time to set the show up, but I'm ready to do that.
Some of the things I have planned is to grow a community around Good Morning Gwinnett, that's why I launched the Gwinnett Business Breakfast Club. We will meet the 2nd & 4th Fridays of the month to get together and mastermind over breakfast. I will do a live broadcast to introduce some of the members before we go live on our mastermind. This is exciting to me, because it gives me the opportunity to expand the awareness of the show.
The next thing I'm doing is launching the Monthly Morning Star Award. This gives people the opportunity to nominate someone who brightens their day for a $25 breakfast gift certificate. The next thing I'm launching is the 1st Annual Cereal Eating Contest. I think this will be so fun. The winner of the contest will win $200 and a trophy. The contest will take place on April 23, 2022 at Rhodes Jordan Park in Lawrenceville.
Normally I talk business on the show only on Tuesday, starting in 2022 I will be talking business on each episode in the second segment which starts about 10:45. That segment is called #MillionDollarYear. Some days I will have guest, so that segment will be dedicated to the guest after I read the daily horoscopes.
Many of you who are reading this article are solopreneurs. Being a solopreneur can not only be lonely, it can also be difficult to grow because you are the one doing everything.
I'm a solopreneur, but I do have help. I have a producer that book the guest for my show and this is a huge help for me. But I realized that I need even more help, so I was in a meeting today with another podcaster and we were discussing how we could collaborate. We came up with some really good ideas. What also came out of that meeting is an administrative assistant who will handle all of the administration tasks that neither he nor I have the time to do. This will be a huge help for the growth of both our businesses. So if you can't afford to bring on a team you should ask yourself who can I collaborate with.
This is not my first time collaborating. I just finished up a great collaborative venture that helped me to pull through financially in my business when many other businesses were closing their doors. This was a 6 month partnership that worked out wonderfully for all involved. I had no idea that Covid-19 would stop us dead in our tracks but it did, but because of the collaborative partnership my business did not miss a beat. Well outside of the fact that I had to close down The Noise Factory which I had just opened and may some day open again when the demand for podcast production calls for it.
Here are the 5 things that are crucial to the success of any collaboration:
