12-17-20 – Traci’s Coaching Call


Holiday Fun

Unknown Speaker 3:59
toxic environment, um, and the impact of, you know, that kind of culture and environment on turnover and then the output and you know all sorts of things. And Chris pop on I didn’t realize my camera’s not on I was late I’m sorry to interrupt, but I was like, I

Traci 4:19
swear I’m not not coming today.

Unknown Speaker 4:21
That’s okay Chris. We have a surprise for you going on.

Traci 4:25
Now that wasn’t it. That wasn’t here it is.

Here we go.

See Chris, you missed it. We missed you.

Unknown Speaker 4:57
I am so glad to be here. I’m so sorry to be late in May. Expansion entrance.

Traci 5:02
You can never talk the entrance that I made when I couldn’t figure out how to turn the music off. Now we’re so happy you’re here and we’re just doing celebration. So hopefully you have one we’re celebrating your back.

I’m one well, Jen, are you done talking? I

Unknown Speaker 5:21
didn’t mean to interrupt you.

Traci 5:23
Okay, yes, this

Unknown Speaker 5:24
was like a total tangent, Laura and I will connect outside of the group. Okay, I

Traci 5:28
didn’t want to interrupt anybody.

Everybody knows.

My DJ days are a little dated. Can you tell? Anyway, we’re happy you’re here. If you have a win, we’d love to hear it. Um, well, I

Unknown Speaker 5:46
have something that’s gonna be a win. So I am running my first Instagram contest today. And I’m super excited about it. And

Traci 5:56
Yay. So next

Unknown Speaker 5:57
time, I guess I’ll be on the next call, which won’t be next week, because it’s Christmas Eve, but I’m gonna have a win really soon. Because it’s gonna be a great contest that I’m running.

Unknown Speaker 6:06
That is so awesome. And okay, anybody else for a win? Anyone else? Just want to say hello. I know you’re.

Unknown Speaker 6:17
I was just gonna mention that when you last left us last week, didn’t you say we should all add to our Pinterest account sub podcast board?

Traci 6:26
Yeah, I did. Oh, you did. And

Unknown Speaker 6:29
it was so fun. So if everybody hasn’t done it, I recommend it. It was like a lot of fun to do. And then while I was at it, I did a watch this and I put up all my Netflix, you know, Hulu, stuff I’ve watched or video because you’re always asking people what to listen to. So it’s a good place to go for that kind of thing?

Unknown Speaker 6:45
Absolutely. And if

Unknown Speaker 6:48
I did search journey to there, it didn’t pop up, man. Well, that’s not that how to tell you that. But I’m wondering if everybody could post their the name of their podcast in the chat. Like every we’ve had a couple because some of them I know. And some of them I don’t. So maybe at some point during the call, everybody will post those. That’d be great. And good. Good to have.

Unknown Speaker 7:05
Yeah, definitely. Okay, well,

Unknown Speaker 7:09
before we have a I have a related related ish question. Right? You

Unknown Speaker 7:15
can you can google when you’re looking for a topic, right? I I learned really well by a podcast. And so sometimes they’ll be like, Oh, I want to learn about sourdough. Can I search a sourdough podcasts and see what comes up? And you’ll get these these kind of like, I think people who blog for a living who review you know, there’ll be like top six on this? Do people reach out to those folks to say, Hey, would you look at my podcast? Or do you just let them organically find you? How much? I guess? Yeah. How much? Are you putting yourself intentionally in front of the people who might be creating content? Okay, I

Unknown Speaker 7:52
need you to, I need you to just ask that one more time, because I would kind of lost the flow.

Unknown Speaker 7:58
See, now Jen, always not. So I feel like she knows what I’m talking about.

Traci 8:01
Then maybe.

Unknown Speaker 8:04
So I was with you. And then I lost it. I thought what you were gonna say is do those curators reach out to you to say, you know, can we list you? Or do you want to be and that was a no, it’s, we’re saying,

Unknown Speaker 8:19
so you ever reach out to those folks?

Unknown Speaker 8:24
I don’t know, I think depends on which ones and how they work. Most of them if they allow you to reach out require you to pay.

Unknown Speaker 8:32

Traci 8:33
If they do that.

Unknown Speaker 8:37
Interesting, just in terms of are they are they transparent about that? Do you know what I mean? If you if I went to go search for a blog, read that blog post, I they transparent and saying people have to pay me if they want me to say I like their podcast?

Unknown Speaker 8:54
Well, I think they ethically there’s if they’re being paid, they’re supposed to disclose that

Unknown Speaker 9:00
I’m supposed to put like, like, sponsored content or something.

Unknown Speaker 9:04
Yeah, I mean, I, you know, I don’t know. There’s not a, you know, a big internet police around it. But I think that you know, you have some of these lists are curated authentically, especially this time of year, you’re going to see a lot of genuine lists, the top 20 podcasts of 2020, things like that, but you’re also going to end this is the same with really with any industry travel and and with the, you know, the best islands in the US and things like that. But a lot of those have to do with maybe people contributing to a chamber of commerce or a pub publicist creates some buzz around it, so their clients featured in it. So you have to, you know, you might want to take some of it with a grain of salt and then if someone approaches you about something like that, I would absolutely not pay to participate. But if someone approaches you and it’s a genuine, authentic situation, But there is a lot of pay to play going on out there. And that’s not really as authentic. So great question was

Unknown Speaker 10:06
even like those podcast awards, I can’t think of what they are the podcast awards, the submission deadline was like the other day, and it was like 100 to $200 to submit your podcast for an award. Right? Yeah. And I mean,

Unknown Speaker 10:19
you know, so if you win, then you got a $200 Award, if you didn’t, you paid $200 and didn’t win. So it’s kind of just, and it’s really sort of a, it’s, but at the end of the day, it’s a PR mechanism, it just depends on at what level you want to participate financially and otherwise. So well,

Unknown Speaker 10:38
I had one recently reached out to me, and the price was really reasonable. But she couldn’t tell me how many she was capping it at. So I was kind of like, okay, so you could have like, 100. And then I’m still just a number in the list. So that’s another thing is asking. Because and, you know, I said to her, I’m like, but how many are you going to take? Because like I said, it was really reasonable database, but it wasn’t going to help me if it at 10 or something. And so that’s another thing to think about how many didn’t happen enough? Right?

Unknown Speaker 11:09
Right. It gives you some bragging rights, that’s for sure. But you can also work with the help a reporter out and some services like that, that you could submit to you that you could get publicity from and then you know, generally share, she does a great job of using medium calm and thrive go global to place her own content that she generates on and one of the things that we were talking about during the office hours, were that putting content on medium and thrive global. And in areas like that publicist are constantly vetting people through those types of forums. So even if you don’t know or, you know, like, you can tell, I guess, especially like on medium where you have enough likes or claps or new article, but at the same time, if you were taking the transcription, and converting that into a blog post, and then leveraging that blog post in some of the industry publications that’s specific to your industry, or the mediums and the Global’s then that set you up to propel that expert status, and then you are likely to be contacted by other media, because you’re in that media. So that’s something that I think I would take as an approach before I would do paid things.

Traci 12:31

Unknown Speaker 12:32
can I just say something really quick in regards to invoicing that somebody had talked about. So I was talking to somebody and she had been doing a lot of research on Instagram, and apparently Instagram is going to be really cracking down on on giveaways. So you have to be more creative in regards to how you’re going to say that because, you know, it’s by bots. So if they hear giveaway, then they your you may not get as much engagement or they might even what you may call it, remove your profile or put your suspend your profile. So, other ways to be able to say giveaway is you know, we want to share with you, we want to gift you we want to like just start being creative with your word, instead of saying a giveaway. Be creative with your words in regards to that in order to avoid anything happening.

Unknown Speaker 13:33
Well, and one of the things that I because I’m the one who said it, one of the things I did a bunch of research, and

Unknown Speaker 13:39
oh, it was actually another person too. So I think it was from like, this is a somebody I’m with on the on a different platform completely. Okay.

Unknown Speaker 13:48
Well, one of the things that I learned is that you can’t have them like share,

Unknown Speaker 13:53
or so what I did is

Unknown Speaker 13:55
I’m giving away a book, because part of my podcast is we review books. And so it was given two copies of the book away. So tell your friend that you want to read the book with instead of share it because I saw one recently that somebody was LIKE, share it to your stories. You know, who wants to share something, your stories and how are you tracking that? But that was another way. So I did a lot of research because that actually Tracy and I talked about that in our office hours forever ago or maybe it was back when it was just like four of us on a call. But that was one of the ways was, you know what you’re giving away and how you’re doing it, like you said, not using the word giveaway, but just getting the visibility by not asking him to tag a friend like how you ask them

Unknown Speaker 14:41
to tag it like we’re I’m working with a wire with a Bittner in regards to doing a bottle of wine. So instead of saying that we’re going to say I’m going to put like we want to gift somebody a bottle of wine and tag somebody would love to share a glass with

Unknown Speaker 14:58
mm, nice Yeah. Oh

Unknown Speaker 15:02
my gosh. Okay, well,

Unknown Speaker 15:03
I’m speaking I’m sharing gifts and prizes and giveaways. We’re gonna have a little more fun. Hold on one second. Let’s see.

Traci 15:19
Because now we’re gonna

rock around the Christmas tree. Okay, with a game. Okay.

Unknown Speaker 15:29
Should I put on my antlers?

Traci 15:31
Yes, definitely. Okay, so just because one more Hold on, wait

for it.

Unknown Speaker 15:46
You better watch out.

Unknown Speaker 15:49
I feel like Hold on, hold on.

Unknown Speaker 15:53
Santa Claus,

Unknown Speaker 15:54
this comment?

Traci 15:57
Okay, well, I’m not Santa Claus, but I am today. So we’re going to play a game. And it’s called the naughty list. Women here, let’s

Unknown Speaker 16:11
have a little fun. Okay, so here’s how it works. And you will need to come off video there will be no judgment, but I need to be able to see your hands and even for this to be able to work. Okay. So it’s the naughty list. So I am going to it’s kind of like, Never have I ever. But if you have an I read this thing as if I read when I read this out, then you have to you’re gonna have like, hold up 10 fingers. And so when I read this out, if you have done one of these things, then you have to take down one of your fingers. So the person who oh my gosh, that’s a guy just

Traci 16:53
oh my gosh, me. I’m Santa hats. I’m so excited. Okay, so

when I say committed fully to this,

Unknown Speaker 17:00
you’re like all in I love it. Yeah. Okay. So, um, it when I say the naughty list item, if you have done it, you just take down one finger, and then keep taking down your fingers and tell the person that is still left with a finger. If that happens. It’s gonna win, but I think because we may have all done some of these things. I might just be sporadically like giving people gifts. Okay, but let’s just I’ve never done this before. Like I said, Our takeaway from the call today is don’t do anything live unless you’ve tested it before. But hey, I’m going with it. Okay, so, ready? Okay. You have if you’re on the naughty list if you have ever re gifted a present. Okay, and now there’s no judgment attached this naughty list to you. By the way. We’re just having fun. Okay, um, you tidy your background before this call.

Traci 18:00
All right.


Unknown Speaker 18:04
you some of these, I’m embellishing okay. You don’t believe in Santa.

Traci 18:12
Okay, if you don’t, okay, no judgement, I promise. Um, okay.


Unknown Speaker 18:17
have you ever peeked at a present in advance? Okay, come on. You’ve never peeked at a present in advance.

Unknown Speaker 18:29
You have a weakness or accident.

Unknown Speaker 18:32
You have to realize that my family is Mexican and you get hit with the chancla if you peek.

Traci 18:39
That’s why I say on purpose or by accident.

Okay, I’m Charlotte. You just walked in on Hold on. Wait for him. This is just for you. Because you will see in this call


I can’t talk this the rest of the day, I swear. Okay, so hold up your 10 finger Charlotte because we’re playing the naughty list game so it Oh, no. We’re done these things.

Um, you have ever skipped a week of recording a podcast episode. Come on, ladies. is

Unknown Speaker 19:48

Traci 19:50

Traci 20:59

Unknown Speaker 20:59
says you’re not right. Asking the right credit questions, Tracy though?

Unknown Speaker 21:03
I guess not. Okay, I’m trying to keep it clean. Okay, so the last one, the last one was knocked over a Christmas tree. If anybody’s done that. Take your finger down. Okay. On purpose or by mistake. Oh, that’s right. I don’t care.

Traci 21:19

Traci 30:46

with your shirt. Okay, well,

Unknown Speaker 30:56
y’all, I just wanted us to have some fun today. And this has been such. I mean, do you guys have been the absolute highlight of my 2020 and I like it brings some joy to you along, especially today. And I need you guys that that won the prizes that I need to mail. If you guys can put your if you don’t mind, put your dresses, you can send them to me privately or you can put them in the chat so I can make sure I can get them out to you. And we can get back to business if you like we still have about 20 more minutes, or we can just celebrate and hang out or we can go so it’s really up to you guys.

Unknown Speaker 31:37
Have a question. Okay. And any any input here, um, I’m excited because for both my podcasts I recorded brand new intros and outros with music, and I hadn’t changed it since I started in 2017. So it’s very timely and very excited. My whole team likes everybody likes the sound. But I’m wondering, should I just I’m planning for this to be like the first episodes in January for everything to roll out. So do I tease my audience that something’s changing, just change it and see what they react to, or, I don’t know, I kind of wanna have fun with it cheesy my social media maybe or just change it. And

Unknown Speaker 32:17
so this is for your intro, and for your music bed. Me intro outro music bed. So one of the things that you could do that’s always fun is that you could post even, um, I don’t know, if you’ve already chosen your music bed. And even if you have you can have fun with it is um, you can post a link to two different music beds or and then you can have people vote on them. You could put some post to some links of the two voices and have people vote on that so that you’re like you’re involving them in the process, but it’s also kind of fun. And then you can do the big reveal of what you ultimately decide to do. So that’s something that’s always fun as as you’re going through a rebranding if you have an engaged social media audience that wants to play with you in that way. So you could do that. And then you could I’m really just I mean, I have to say a lot of my creativity just got tapped out.

Traci 33:13
Five minutes. But

Unknown Speaker 33:16
I think that you could also do, um, you could do an audiogram with like a new changes coming soon, but just use the music bed under the audiogram. So that don’t really know exactly what that means. Okay, yeah. And then you could, um, whoever you’re using for your voiceover I don’t know if this would be cost effective or not, but you could have them recorded teaser. That’s even like I can’t wait to meet you. I’m coming soon to brand new podcast, you know, just like if it’s somebody that I mean, it kind of depends on if you have to pay for the voiceover but

Unknown Speaker 33:56
yeah, I’m going from a head voiceover when I first started and I’m now using my own voice and different music so that’s what we’re switching to. Okay.

Unknown Speaker 34:05
Poor James. He totally just left the call feel so bad. He was fine. Like what does

Unknown Speaker 34:14
I want to show you guys my my dog? Because he catches me.

Traci 34:21

Unknown Speaker 34:22
my goodness.

Unknown Speaker 34:24
Look at that Christmas sweater. That is hysterical. Yeah, we should one of the questions should have been Have you ever dressed up your pet in a Christmas?

Unknown Speaker 34:37
I thought you said let me go get my doll. And I was like I really love dogs. So that was a lovely surprise.

Unknown Speaker 34:48
Okay, good. God knows is getting a little. That’s a short term thing. It’s short term where

Unknown Speaker 34:55
I’m okay. Well, so you know what I just thought of a new thing for us to do same Because we’re not going to be able to, we’re not going to get back together on this group call until the first Thursday in January, which I think is the set the six, let me double check, because I don’t want to get it wrong. I’m seven, seven. Okay, so we’ll be back together on January the seventh. So let’s take the next few minutes and just speak out loud. Our you can either choose a word for 2021, an intention for 2021, or a wishlist item for 2021. So let’s, let’s, let’s do that together. So we come together and setting our intentions and who would like to start?

Unknown Speaker 35:43
Man or peace and positivity?

Unknown Speaker 35:46
Very nice. We

Unknown Speaker 35:48
started from a yoga class about three weeks ago, and now I’ve been putting in every email. Here’s to peace and positivity in 2021. So there you go,

Unknown Speaker 35:56
your lips to the universe’s ears and spread all through the planet. Okay, who’d like to go next? and intention, a wishlist item? Or word?

Unknown Speaker 36:11

Traci 36:13
Okay, good girl,

Unknown Speaker 36:15
you’re on your way. Thank you.

Traci 36:18
I know I am. Oh, James is back. Again,

Unknown Speaker 36:32
I would say mine would be growth because growth can be personally and professionally. Because I didn’t realize I’ve monetized my podcast by already with the wine tastings. Somebody had to tell me you know, you’ve already monetize your podcast. And I was like, What? To live with the wine tasting sounds like oh, my gosh, I totally have like, totally did not think about that. So I would say for me, growth and intention, because I think those are you you can use those both personally and professionally.

Unknown Speaker 37:06
There’s, that is great. And congratulations for monetizing your podcast in 2022 to 2020 also, and in James, we’re really glad you’re back because we thought maybe we scared you to never returning again. So right now we’re at a place where we’re just claiming an intention award or wishlist item for 2021. Okay, we’ve got some in the chat, we’ve got um, abundance in space. That’s leras we’ve got focus from Meredith we’ve got momentum, and then connection and community from Chris I love that. Well, you’re definitely in the right place to start that off for next year right now. And okay, who else would like to share a word and intention or wishlist item and you can share twice you don’t have to share just once.

Unknown Speaker 37:55
Oh, my words for 2020 have been joy and ease. Um, so I’m going to keep that going. And, you know, certainly adding some of these other words to abundance has been coming up a lot. Um, but I love all of it. Thanks, guys.

Unknown Speaker 38:15
I think I’ll add mine I was thinking about that as they’re talking but for this year for me, it’s been happiness and freedom. And they’re in all of my affirmations because I have to remind myself why I do what I do. And that’s what my business brings to me freedom in my life and I serve the people that I work with, you know, that does bring me a level of happiness. I think I’ll definitely be continuing that into 2021

Unknown Speaker 38:41
love that in Sandy put in the chat power because it has multiple meanings and applications and yes, I love that so true. Um All right. Anybody else want to share anything else?

Unknown Speaker 38:58
I think for me is I’m uplevel my creativity to monetize

Unknown Speaker 39:04
Hmm, so

Traci 39:06
a mind map and I can see it so

yeah, that’s what I feel.

Unknown Speaker 39:12
So my my word for this year that was set up was simplicity. I don’t know that I achieved that quite honestly. But I will say that um, that there are some things I’ve simplified but but relocating and launching pod have and growing our team on produce your podcast, none of it was necessarily simple, but it was all very much a blessing. So I guess I don’t know that I’m going to carry that word ever. I think what I’m going to carry over into next year for me is going to be fun because I have real a lot on my plate in the most abundantly, abundantly grateful way. And I’ve really realized that it’s cutting into my willingness to take time away to have fun. So my, my 2021 vision has nothing to do with my business except for to have more fun in my business. And I definitely think that today, it’s a good indicator that I do have it in me. It isn’t me. I just need to bring it out a little bit more but I promise not

Traci 40:24
to subject you to rounds and rounds of Christmas carols for the whole rest of 2021. So just the rest of 2020

so with that,

Unknown Speaker 40:35
if anybody else doesn’t have anything to share,

Traci 40:39
I got one more over here waiting for the playlist. It’s my wish for you all. Here we go.

guys know this one. jingle bell rock.
