PERSONAL / YOUTUBE UPDATE.
I’ll go to bed and have some sleep now, because I’ve had a few nights in a row now, with not so much of sleep. Because!
I’m really working on my YouTube channel at the moment, and like my podcast; then I see it as some sort of portfolio, that hopefully can help with adding lots of value to you guys and other viewers.
If you feel like it, then go and check out my channel. I would love to know if it resonates with you and if it’s bringing you any value...
BE STRATEGIC ON GROWING YOUR AUDIENCE.
So, I thought I wanted to share a little tip with you guys on growing your audience! And in specific; on YouTube.
As some of you know, then I’m a big believer in more followers, means more potential customers, which means more potential sale.
And since my mission is, to help you make your dreams come true, in the fields of coaching, author, podcaster, tv presenter or tv show creator - then it’s relevant enough of me to share a...
HEART VERSUS BRAIN DECISIONS.
''Keep dreaming. Keep creating. Keep leading with your heart.''
Here’s another great one by Marie Forleo. I just read it on twitter and it hit me that...
I’m finally in a place in my life, where I can say, honestly, that I’m leading 100% with my heart.
With that said, then I’m aware that heart decisions ain’t always theeeee right ones, because we have to take care of our life, heart and those people who we love and care about - and sometimes, that’s...
TELEPROMPTER: GO OR NO GO?
Hi everyone! It’s been a week (or weeks?) since I posted something, because I’ve been busy working on my other social media platforms.
I’m a big believer of getting yourself out there, as much as you can, in order to grow your audience - and therefore; later on your customers too.
So as some of you know, then I’ve been super focused on my Instagram, then later on my podcast and now - I’m currently working on my YouTube channel....
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING BEFORE STARTING ON YOUR WRITING PROCESS.
This is a picture from one of my settings during my writing process of my first book: feet’s out of the window, sun in the face and the computer inside of the apartment, so I was able to see the screen more clearly.
There’s lots of ways to do a writing process - the most important thing is that you feel good.
Personally, then I’ve written both of my books at the same cafe and in my apartment. For me the most...
HOW TO AVOID CREATING DRAMA FOR YOURSELF DURING AN INTERVIEW.
So here’s a blurred black and white picture from a setting on stage during the book fair in Copenhagen.
What I leaned from this interview is simply:
• If you don’t know something, about something, then say that. Instead of trying to pretend that you do.
• If the interviewer is trying to point the interview in a certain direction by the line up of questions being asked, then focus on the reason why you’re doing the...
WHAT TO WRITE AND WHEN TO WRITE?
So the other day I got a question from some of you about what to write and when to write.
When having a dream about becoming an author and publishing a book, doesn’t always equals that you know exactly what to write about or when to write it - and that is okay!
The most important part of the process is to plant a seed and thereby grow a dream. Because, everything in this wild world (almost) starts with having a dream, that eventually can take...
This is a quote by filmmaker, Ken Burns, from an article on Forbes.com.
The context of the quote is not the point I wish to make or describe in this post.
But what I would love to put a few words on, is the truth of: the power of words. As written, or by listening to them in a conversation, in a play, in music or so on.
Maya Angelou has also said something beautiful about the power of words and here it is (had to google it after I read this quote myself):
“Words are things,...
This this post I want to talk about perfectionism.
Many of us have a tendency to never start, never publish or never even try to book the meeting with xxx as we dream of! Why?
Because we don’t feel ready yet. We don’t feel like we know enough yet (at least that’s one of our excuses), or the timing is not so good at the moment (another excuse) or I’ll go apply for the job or try to book the meeting once I look a little bit more slim. Can you relate?
HOW TO HANDLE A PROBLEM.
... so don’t push the problem away or try to avoid it.
Try to see it as your friend instead, who has a message for you, and try to listen and learn (or research until you know how to act accordingly/solve the problem/understand/learn) instead of seeing the problem as a negative thing or even as some sort of enemy.
I see this like I see the thing about fear: don’t push it away, don’t avoid it, don’t be scared of it... instead: look it right in the eye and...
THE SACRIFICES WE SOMETIMES HAVE TO MAKE IN ORDER TO REACH OUR DREAMS.
So this evening I felt like writing a post about the lack of integrity and/or the sacrifices we sometimes have to make towards reaching our dreams in order to actually and eventually reach them.
Do you know the feeling of:
• saying yes to ugly work (maybe you work as a photographer and have to say yes to brands you find boring or ugly, in order to pay your bills so you also can get to shoot editorials or...
HOW TO BECOME A TELEVISION PRESENTER.
So this morning I thought I wanted to share with you a ‘behind the scenes’ video from our television show production.
In this little studio, we produced +400 shows, can you imagine?
I know that some of you would like to know, how to become a television presenter.
Well, let’s cover that in a short way: you have to be proactive.
You can either:
1. Look for a job as a TV/online presenter on the internet
2. Go and do some networking...
HOW TO SET AN INTENTION.
Good morning everyone!
Thought I wanted to share a beautiful poem with you guys and after that: 3 tips on how set an intention.
But first, here’s the poem by Christen Rodgers: “Like seeds on the wind our intentions spread far and wide unfurling their power as they go. Until they find the environment balanced just right for our dreams to take root and begin to grow.”
Here’s the 3 tips on how to set an intention:
1. Set aside some minutes to think...
HOW TO HANDLE BEING NERVOUS BEFORE A PERFORMANCE.
Okay, so the other day I got a message about what to do, if feeling nervous before a recording.
A recording can be many different things: a podcast recording, video, production, online live courses/sessions or so on - so I thought that would be a great topic to bring up and cover for this evening.
This is a picture from a shooting at Mallorca, some years ago, but I still remember the excitement that arises before shooting for big...
HOW TO HANDLE A ‘BEING OUT OF BREATH WHILE RECORDING A PODCAST EPISODE’ SITUATION.
I know that feeling for sure! And especially because my new podcast is in English, which is not my main language! (For those of you who don’t know, then I’m from Denmark)
Here’s a few tips on how to handle the being out of breath while recording a podcast episode situation:
1. Just stop talking when you need to breathe, and then continue. You can cut while editing your podcast episode
ON THE POWER OF SHOWING UP.
I just stumbled upon this quote by Marie Forleo on Twitter. And I find it beautiful. True. Wise. Brave... Courageous. Vulnerable.
And that made me feel like going on google to find some even more beautiful words about the power of showing up.
Here’s a few beautiful lines I found. I hope they will add some beauty and power to your heart and journey towards making your dreams come true, too:
“The willingness to show up changes us, It makes us a...
TIPS ON HOW TO SUCCEED WITH YOUR PODCAST IN 2020.
Hi guys! It’s been a week since I posted last time, because I have been busy working on my other social media platforms.
This picture is a screenshot of my statistics from my new podcast.
I launched ‘Dream to reality’ podcast on my existing podcast platform on May 5th and 7 hours after (I didn’t check it again before bedtime) it had reached the #1 on iTunes in it’s category ‘How to’.
THE MAGIC OF A SUPPORT SYSTEM.
Today I want to talk about the importance of a support system. Have you ever tried
• to be in a healthy relationship, and during that time you felt like you could reach your dreams a tiny bit more?
• that a family member was there for you during a difficult time, and therefore you got quicker and even stronger back up on your feet?
• that a girlfriend of yours kept supporting you during a time filled with stress and confusion, and...
GET TO KNOW YOURSELF BETTER VIA YOUR DREAMS.
So tonight I just want to inspire you with something that could might be helpful on your journey towards discovering what you dream of achieving in your life.
And that is: dream interpretation.
You see, the beautiful thing about dreams is that they have their own global language. And by that I mean: when you dream, then you dream in pictures, colours or even in numbers and these things are metaphors for feelings/meanings of different...
HOW TO BECOME SPECIFIC IN OUR WANTS.
''When you start saying what you really want, your mind automatically shifts to pull you in that direction. Give your vocabulary a positive makeover to speak your dreams into existence.''
For those of you who have followed me for a while and who have read my posts with consistency, then you’ll know that I’m a big believer in the power of words - and therefore also a big believer of this quote.
But sometimes, it can be difficult to narrow down what...
''How to step into your side hustle unafraid and with confidence.''
I guess half of this quote is not possible. I just read it on twitter, and it belongs to an article on Success.com.
Well, the first thing that came to my mind is: everything which is important to you is one way or the other related to fear. Because of the emotional attachment to it.
I know that some says (I think it’s in Buddhism?) that it’s actually possible and for the better to practise not being emotional...
AN INSIGHT ON: AUDIOBOOKS.
This evening I want to give you an insight: if you dream of becoming an author but has difficulties
• signing with a publisher house
• booking a meeting with a publisher house
• getting started on the ‘getting signed with a publisher house’ process because of the amount of work you think you have to put into it
• going for your dream because of the fear of rejection
Then this is for you!
Every 3 month I receive a statement on my book sale...
HOW TO TURN YOUR ROLE MODELS QUALITIES INTO YOUR BUSINESS QUALITIES.
So I thought I wanted to share this picture with you guys.
This is not me in the picture, but there’s a good reason for me to share it (I think) and that’s because this one picture helped me to start my whole journey as a podcaster.
As some of you have read in my former posts, then I went from 0 to 8.000 downloads within 24 hours and reached the number #1 on iTunes podcast hit list as the most popular podcast...
“Your effort matters. Your dedication counts. It is all making a difference - even though you may not be able to see it quite yet.”
OMG, this is so important! It’s such wise words and I just love it!
I think most often (or maybe I can only talk for myself) it can be so challenging to stay consistent with something (unless it’s a heart project or something you have tons of passion, time or money for) because it is pretty tuff sometimes, to continue to try making your dreams/dream come...
Hi everyone, so this evening I thought about sharing these exact thoughts with you on branding.
Do you know the feeling of:
• Trying to find out what works for your brand?
• Not being too happy about your current branding?
• Really wanting to do better on branding, because you dream of growing your audience?
Then: you’re totally not alone and I’ve just been through the exact same thing!
Here’s a few things I did wrong:...
