New Music Podcast: BATTS ‘The Grand Tour’ NASA debut album launch.

Excited to welcome back my friend and Melbourne singer-songwriter BATTS on the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! weekly entrepreneurship podcast for the 4th time, as she prepares to hit the road for her east coast of Australia for the launch of her much anticipated and highly-imaginative debut concept album called ‘The Grand Tour’.

NASA’s launch of the twin Voyager 1 and 2 spacecrafts in 1977, which inspired The Grand Tour album, sent a shock of radio and plasma wave signals back in 2012 from Voyager 1 as it crossed into Interstellar Space and on today’s show we chat about what inspired BATTS to reach out to NASA in the creation of this beautiful album.

Voyager 1 and 2 are currently exploring where nothing from Earth has flown before and are each are much farther away from Earth and the sun than Pluto. Like life imitating art, we dive in what keeps driving BATTS into the unknown for her upcoming tours of Australia and the UK, as a solo indie artist, musician and businesswoman. 

Super fun chats and what a rad lady! Let’s get into it!

Retrain Your Booze Brain. 

Welcome to a very special episode of Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! with special guest Benny Wallington, founder of 101 Tokens, a new community of people taking back control over their alcohol consumption. Creating new drinking habits and a better all-round lifestyle.

Facts:

  • 5 million Australians drinking three times or more a week with 37% drinking to get drunk.
  • Benny and 101 Tokens have empowered over 11,000 people in 76 countries to change their habits.

On today’s show, Benny shares his personal journey as an Aussie partying hard in London that inspired him to start a personal mission that evolved into the creation of global 101 Tokens community, the 101 Tokens accountability app – (10K Downloads in the 1st month!), the Smart Drinking Bootcamp, techniques that you can use to evolve your drinking habits from Drink, Drunk. Regret, Suppress to Drink, Respect, Reflect, Success, our consumption as a whole (drugs, alcohol, fashion industry) and how to live a life of intention. Fascinating chats!

PLUS I talk about why this month, I have decided to go alcohol-free* for a month of what I’m calling BOOZE-FREE MAY-BE*.

This is a show about how to retrain your booze brain. So if you’re Aussie (or from another global drinking culture) and you’d love to consider your current relationship with alcohol, whether you think that you might be drinking too much or are keen for a few ideas on how you can drink smarter to impact on your Health & Wellness, Finances and Productivity, then this is the podcast for you!

Let’s get into the show!

* Disclaimer: I am totally giving myself 2-3 tokens (max) as a leave pass for a few drinks, hence the Booze-Free May-Be*. It’s not a nanny state, dammit! 😁✨

Podcast Feature: “I will give you exposure”. Avoid this MARKETING FAIL!

Posted on Updated on

Avoid this MARKETING FAIL: “I will give you exposure”.

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #212 MARKETING FAIL: “I will give you exposure” – Solocast.

Today’s podcast comes in 3 parts:

  • Avoid this MARKETING FAIL: “I will give you exposure”.
  • Crediting creative works online – photography, videography and artwork.
  • ANZAC Day. Learning about ANZAC Day as an Australian. What you can do.

“I will give you free exposure”. Fail. I want to hang up the phone immediately. Epic fail!

Yes, I had one of those business calls on a Monday a few weeks back for the 1st time in a while. The gentleman calling (not a gentleman caller 😉) had never met me before, did not know me, was quite polite and is actually affiliated with an organisation that I am a part of and believe in, but believe you me, that is NOT the way to approach me.

As a Social Media Strategist and Content Producer (Photographer/Podcaster), believe me I am well-versed with these conversations, businesses, brands and organisations trying to acquire my services for cheap or for free and quite frankly I’ve had enough!

On today’s podcast we to dive into one of the phrases I loathe most in the creative services industry and the English language “I will give you exposure”.

We discuss how brands, organisations, festivals/events and anyone in the need for creative services, who might have little to no budget, should approach creatives with these opportunities whilst showing respect for the time and value of creatives.

I also provide you the creative with the top tips on how to ensure that you always put value on your time and experience, when to say yes and when to say no to helping out people, brands or organisations who want your time for nothing.

Crediting creative works – photography, videography and artwork.

On Part II of today’s show we discuss the need for influencers, brands and anyone publishing the work of creatives, no matter what their level of creative skill, to provide artistic credit for any works posted online and provide insight as to what this ultimately means for any photographers, videographers and others in the creative/artistic industries.

I also provide creatives with key advice and tips/tricks to ensure that you are credited for your work.

Learning about ANZAC Day as an Australian. What you can do.

The shortest part and the cherry on top of today’s podcast – we touch on the history of ANZAC Day, what it means to me and how you can get involved.

Let’s get into the show!
