Hey there! In today's episode, I'm diving into the soulful artistry of photography, urging us to reconnect with the roots of our craft. I reminisce about the days of film cameras when photographers meticulously planned and crafted a few exquisite portraits meant for walls, not just social media.Let's take a journey back to when portraits began, where artists invested time, studied subjects, and created timeless pieces. We're the modern successors of this legacy. Imagine if only one photo could define you for eternity. It's a powerful concept, one that demands we truly know our clients.I highlight the fading tradition of displaying family portraits and challenge us to revive it. Research shows the impact on children's self-confidence when they see their faces on the wall. Our business is not just about money; it's about preserving a tradition.As photographers, we shape the narrative. So, join me in reflecting on our role, our art, and the lasting impact we can create.Let's carry the torch for generations to come!Grab your seat for the very FIRST Equine Photography Virtual Summit, here!

This episode contains: Three hosts again this episode. We talk about Kevin Bacon, Ben has returned and is now known as Numbers. We have an audio diary (that we share with the world). Devon shares a personal story and is now relieved, we chat a bit about Lethal Company and invite Ben to join. Ben tells us all about Patch Quest and the joy he's having with his son. Steven shares how he's brainwashing his kids into enjoying Pokemon (not really). https://store.steampowered.com/app/1966720/Lethal_Company/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/1347970/Patch_Quest/ Finally, Am I Right?: Please make more USB-C cables like this. Elgato has make a great teleprompter that also has a great USB-C cable that ships with it. Their latest USB-C cable has the bandwidth and USB type imprinted on the connector. A lot of USB-C cables have unknown data speeds, charging speeds or both. More companies should adopt this labeling standard. https://www.theverge.com/2023/11/6/23948486/usb-c-cables-marking-speed-power-delivery-elgato BONES!: Printed robots with bones, ligaments and tendons. Researchers have succeeded in printing a robotic hand with bones, ligaments and tendons made of different polymers using a new laser scanning technique. This makes it possible to 3D print special plastics with elastic qualities in one go which opens up completely new possibilities for the production of soft robotic structures. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2023/11/231115113428.htm Science Fiction: We talk about For All Mankind season 4, episode 2: Have A Nice Sol.

Devon gets bored and breaks a toy. Steven and Ben watched LOKI and talk about the season finale and what it means for the future of the MCU. Spoilers for the ending of LOKI season 2. Devon argues about how movie flops might make Marvel change their business strategy, and Ben and Steven have a rebuttal. Ben has finally read "The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet" by Becky Chambers, and describes it as 'a space opera with no heroes'.

In s3e43, Platemark host Ann Shafer talks with Craig Zammiello, an artist and collaborative printer with over 40 years of experience in all areas of printmaking. He worked for 25 years at Universal Limited Art Editions, where he collaborated with numerous artists, including Jasper Johns, Elizabeth Murray, James Rosenquist, Kiki Smith, and Robert Rauschenberg. Currently, he is a collaborative printer at Two Palms working with Mel Bochner, Ellen Gallagher, Chris Offili, Elizabeth Peyton, and Dana Schutz. He is author of a studio manual on photogravure, as well as Conversations from the Print Studio published by Yale University Press.

They talk about Craig's transition to Two Palms and how that studio works outside of the traditional print studio model. Find out about a lifelong interest of Craig's that has resulted in his collection being acquired by the American Museum of Natural History (no, it's not prints), and what band would he most like to join on tour. Zammiello received an MFA from The State University of New York, Stony Brook in 1995. He is currently Adjunct Faculty at the School of the Arts at Columbia University.

Climatologists and medical experts are in agreement about the detrimental impact of excessive meat consumption on both our environment and health. Industrial livestock farming is responsible for a significant 15% of global CO2 emissions, and it also raises ethical concerns regarding animal welfare. In light of these concerns, it recently emerged that UK meat consumption is at its lowest level since record begun. Government data showed that in 2022, people ate an average of 854g of meat per week, which is down 14% compared to a decade ago. For those cutting down on meat or giving it up completely, alternatives like legumes can provide similar nutrients. But completely changing one's dietary habits and cooking style can be daunting. One new solution on the horizon is 3D-printed meat, both in plant-based and animal-based form. How exactly do you print meat? Is it actually a healthier option then?

When it comes to growing your customization business we often talk about 'finding a niche.' What is a product / customer that you can focus on. This could be new moms, or local small businesses or tourists. However, you will find a point where growing that business becomes harder. This is why you will find a candle company that starts selling soaps, or why Bath and Body works sells 99 different ways to make your house smell good.Diversifying your product lines is a great way to level up your business and make more moneyYou can sell to current customersYou can find a new customer baseYou can become more stable (as one product line slows down, another might grow)Types of business diversificationProduct diversification: you primarily sell clothing but you want to expand into other items that will create value for your customer like home goods and accessoriesMarket diversification: you have a local business and start selling online or you open a new location across townIndustry diversification: take you knowledge to a different industry or target a new nicheService diversification: you may only offer finished products, but may want to start doing training on how to make those productsMerge or Acquire: a business that has a different product, service, market or industryWhy you would want to diversify:Want more revenue.Core business is in decline or getting saturated.Less economic riskIncrease competitiveness – offer a wider range of products to attract new customers and reach new markets that competitors can't or don'tExamples:Amazon used to be an online bookseller, then moved on to sell video games and other multi-media and before long, they sold computer electronics, software, homeware, toys, and moreApple was on the verge of bankruptcy in the 90's and launched the iPod and iTunes software and a few years later the iPhoneSteps to Diversify:Do your research – have your customers suggested diversifying? Are they asking for more products or services? What can you do better than your competitors in your current or new markets? What type of diversification would suit your business?Assess your risks – while diversifying can help generate sales and increase your market share, you have to find a crucial balance between finding the time and resources to focus on the new venture without neglecting your core business. Diversifying with similar products in a familiar market may carry less risk than developing a brand new product for an unknown market, but both would create a safety net which will allow you to recover if one of your products or services fails.Audit your resources – what do you have and what do you need to invest inPlan – in many ways it is like starting a new business. You will need to understand your new market, your customers, competitors, and the new dynamics just as you would for any new business*What does your equipment do?**You have an embroidery machine. a) Do you sell hats? b) Patches? c) Uniforms?You have a DigitalHeat FX printer? a) Ever used hard surface paper? b) Printed on cardstock?*What adjacent equipment you can add?**If you have a a sublimation printer, adding a hat press is an easy upgradeIf you do digitalheat fx, might be good to ad a sub printer or a cutterIf you do embroidery, going to a cutter and press.

Welcome to Season 12 Episode 36 of the ParentingAces Podcast, a proud member of the Tennis Channel Podcast Network. In this week's podcast, Lisa is joined by Zach Decker, Chief Marketing Officer of KT Tape. Zach grew up in Boulder, CO with a passion for sports and wellness. He is an avid mountain biker and father of two very active kids. As a result of his interest in physical activity and sports, his role at KT was a no-brainer. In case you're not familiar with the KT brand, it is the leading kinesiology tape brand in the nation. What is kinesiology tape? It is a product used by health care professionals to prevent and treat muscle and tendon injuries and pain such as a strained hamstring or a sore knee. If you watch professional sports of any kind, you have likely seen the colorful tape on athletes' arms or thighs to help them continue playing while preventing further injury. KT has just launched its first mobile app, providing users with clear instructions on how, when, and why to use KT Tape. Based on consumer feedback, KT realized many people lacked confidence in applying KT Tape without professional guidance. The app, designed with input from KT's Sports Medicine Advisory Panel, offers instructional videos to help users understand the benefits, use cases, and proper application of KT tape. You can download the app for free on the App Store and Play Store. They are also launching several new products in the coming months and recently launched the KT PRO Oxygen, the first kinesiology tape to feature CELLIANT® Infrared Technology from Hologenix. Printed on the tape's surface, CELLIANT® mineral powder converts body heat into full-spectrum infrared energy. This delivers enhanced cellular oxygenation, bringing more oxygen to the cells and increasing local circulation. For the full lineup of KT products, be sure to visit their website at https://www.kttape.com/. You can also find them on Instagram at https://instagram.com/kttape and Facebook at https://facebook.com/kttape. Zach has set up a special discount for the ParentingAces community which gives you 40% off your purchase of KT Tape Pro Oxygen or Pro Extreme tape through the end of 2023.

Just days after British troops captured New York City from General Washington and his army in September 1776, fire broke out, destroying a fifth of the city. The British blamed rebels who had remained hidden in Manhattan, but Washington, who had been ordered by Congress to leave the city standing on his retreat, never claimed responsibility, though he complained that the blaze hadn't caused more destruction. So who did start the fire and why? Joining me this week to discuss the New York fire and the question of who started it is Dr. Benjamin Carp, Professor and Daniel M. Lyons Chair of History at Brooklyn College, and author of The Great New York Fire of 1776: A Lost Story of the American Revolution.

Welcome to the next episode of Sports Card Strategy Show (and Tell), a natural extension of our flagship show, but with a focus on your cards, questions and ability to share the who, what and why about your PC and flipping game. Breaking News: Shohei Ohtani tore his UCL as a pitcher against the Cincinnati Reds in a double header. Shohei continues to play in game two. Shohei is going to have surgery and we're wondering if he will pitch again. What does this mean for Shohei cards? He is a long term hold but we'll take a hit in the pitching market which will affect his card value. Even if we see a 10-15% drop it's a good time to buy. Hopefully you moved your Shohei cards in July. If not, hold on to your cards. Thanks Lefty for the news update! First up Paul Schmitz aka Buckeye Dill with his PSA submission.

Parker, Bob Quinn, and Griffin Sheridan - Kill Your DarlingsFOC is August 13 - Release Date: September 6, 2023Thanks for joining us on the AIPT Comics podcast. To start, Kill Your Darlings was described when first announced as Narnia meets Hereditary. Can you unpack that a bit for us?It's safe to say this is a passion project for you guys, when did the bud of this story begin to take root?Bob, I simply love the crayon drawings the protagonist Rose makes, how do you approach drawing in a little kid style like that and making it feel genuine? Bob - do you draw in sequence, or do you take fantasy stuff first, then real world? Vice-versa?The main story takes place in the mid-90s, is there any significance to this being set then?Did any of you have imaginary friends growing up? If so, what were their names?The title is so great, but I gotta ask, did you have to kill any darlings as far as ideas or visuals while making this? Printed under the KLC Press label, can you talk a little bit about the label and how you're connected with it?
Possibility to make IT shipments more secure, deliver on promise of IoT, Pod Group, SODAQ, and Lufthansa Industry Solutions launched the first commercial Smart Label Tracking Device “It looks like a piece of paper, it's a little thinner than your traditional piece of paper, 2 mm thick, to accommodate the printed battery inside,” says Sam Colley, CEO, Pod Group. Pod Group has launched a new Smart Label tracking device, developed in partnership between Pod Group, Lufthansa Industry Solutions, and SODAQ. “It can work like a traditional shipping label, but you have built in this visibility for the supply chain.” In this podcast we learn about a shipping label that offers information about journey and events of a shipment, well beyond the last scan along the way. Smart Label is 2 mm thick The Smart Label uses the low-power cellular 5G connectivity standard (LTE CAT-M) to send data regarding device location and temperature back to a centralized dashboard, enabling logistics companies to track valuable goods which could be as small and light as an envelope containing important documents or as large as a full-sized oil painting. The powerful middleware platform provided by LHIND enables the use of geofences with notifications that can be set to alert the user when the package enters or leaves key points along the supply chain. Colley sees this device as the beginning of what is needed to scale out IoT and to begin to deliver on the full promise of IoT. As he looks down the road at coming versions, he sees this as being a model for a wider assortment of shipments and shipping needs. Visit https://www.podgroup.com/

Please see the in-depth autopsy of my guest's marketing plan, what worked, what failed, what has potential but needs more effort.TRBM Podcast Followup AutopsyIntroductionWrote a series of four sci-fi novellas, set in a future earth built of purely biological technologyFirst time writing long-form fictionTook me ~two years from the start of serious writing to self-publishing.Produced 4 novella series = ~160 k words = ~ 2 novels equivalentLaunched as ebooks in May this year.Four ebooks bundled together in June.The paperback bundle is out now as well.Primary aims of the first book project:1. Learn all the stages of writing (concept, outlines, drafting, editing).2. Learn all stages of production (covers, blurbs, formatting, website, self-publishing).3. Learn the basics of self-promotion (email list, podcasts, social media, no paid advertising).Most important aim- do all these things and still want to write another book afterwards.Advice suggests that paid advertising has higher ROI when you have a decent back catalogue.The Autopsy1. WritingDrafted the story twice as a novel- the original POV character didn't work (passive/unlikeable).Covid fever dream helped me reimagine the story from four minor character POVs.Drafted all four stories first to maintain momentum.Each took a bit over a month writing 2-3k words a day.Followed Heinlein approach to writing (light edit yesterday's draft then continue if >70% right).Redrafted book 2 (too short, lacked interiority) and book 4 (lacked interiority, ending wrong).Drafting took ~1.5 years (most of that spent on discarded original attempts).Editing took ~6 months.Paid professional to proofread book 1 (then applied patterns to other books).Fixed about a dozen minor typos in books 2-4 after ebooks were published.Printed 10 copies of the first novella for a local novel reading group to critique.Too shy for a group discussion with me so made a questionnaire.9/10 hated it, but 1/10 loved it (the group hated Oryx and Crake/mostly read historical/romance).2. ProductionFirst experimented with microphotography for covers- technical hurdles were too much.Made my covers in Adobe Illustrator (weird orphan genre, didn't know what I wanted).Revisited them over 12 months many times (up to 30 versions- substack post on the process).Provided a nice shift in focus between drafting/editing different books.A/B tested covers on social media (people love doing this).Wrote and rewrote blurbs over 12 months.A/B tested again (bit less enthusiastic, but useful feedback).Formatted in Atticus (cheaper option, ugly table of contents but otherwise nice).Website built by web developer friend (generous favour to practice their new skills).Self-published on Amazon in April.Put book 1 in KU for the first few months as lead magnet to series.3. Self PromotionEmail list at a mere 42.Put out monthly updates including illustrated cartoon of weird biologyMailing list swaps? (Weird orphan subgenre?)Appeared on a half dozen podcasts (mostly writing/science/experimental farming-> not ideal audience to market to, but chicken and egg issue with pitching scifi-focused podcasts)Joined twitter (hate it), Facebook (dead), reddit (dying), substack (crickets, but not very active).Weekly experimental farming substack doing well though- sometimes cross-promote.Readers demanded I activate paid subscriptions to support me (made x4 my ebook sales).Created a YouTube channel.Used AI narration to create animated book blurb YouTube shorts.Converted book 1 into an AI audiobook at put it up for free on YouTube (upload to Kobo?).Created a few biology-heavy scifi review videos (some traction, but a lot of work).Reached ten Amazon reviews, got into a Book Barbarian promotion.Minor spike in sales the day after.Flatlined every since (Amazon debut boost expired?).Sold a total of 77 ebooks. Made more money on my farming substack without trying.Novel writing turned out to be a worse way to make money than selling weird seeds.Was busily deciding which book to write next, following advice to crank out next book asap, when the harsh reality of writing self-published novels made me pause.GPT/AI hype craze happened.Seriously considered the viability of long-form text fiction versus alternative channels for creativity.Paused writing other than farm Substack for a few weeks.Focused on my neglected farm.Tried to stop writing but the next story idea kept buzzing in my head. Started writing it again (a dark 80s nostalgia magic realism story called “Anubis Laughed”).Looks like I achieved my ultimate goal of wanting to keep writing in the end.USE THIS LINK TO BUY MY NOVELCosts (cheapest to most expensive)Book funnel- ARC distribution- 29 (could have done without)Book barbarian promo- 63 (net negative, but not expensive)Print out local reading group reviews- 70 (waste of time without matching reader tastes)Copyright - 124 (optional, but may be useful later)Website domain- 138 (friend built website) (very lucky, could have used drag and drop alternative)ISBNs (x10)- 143 (essential)AI Narration- Elevenlabs 180 (valuable tool to learn for other projects)Proof reading- 216 (worthwhile)Formatting- Atticus 220 (saved some hassle, could have learnt to format in Word for more control)Amazon Keywords- Fiverr- 61 + Pubrocket - 178 (total waste of time- not chasing SEO niches)Cover design- Illustrator - 320 (five covers + promo material)(worthwhile- building skills for future)Total expenses of - 1680~300 under budget.Sales since April 202377 ebook sales on Amazon.1 ebook sale on Kobo.1 paperback sale.2.99 per novella, 7.99 for whole series, 19.99 paperback.1000 pages read on KU (since delisted).Estimated royalties- 180.ReflectionsLove building up for month of dedicated drafting.Drafting and self-promotion are incompatible- separate in time.Editing and self-promotion can happen together.Intend to write more short stories - should get back to submitting to magazines again.Intend to try another genre next (sort of magic realism “Anubis Laughed”).When the world is destroyed in 2013, the Egyptian gods send a struggling teacher back to his first day of school in 1984 to write a novel and save his soul from eternal torment.Side Project: Can GPT Destroy the Online Advertising Model?Wondered if LLMs could be used as a personalised story recommendation engine.Rated all the short story finalists from the Hugo Awards.Few ideas:1. Feed it rated stories to see if it can predict my rating for unrated stories.2. Feed it excerpts from my friend's top novels.Create three sets of three stories: one picked by the LLM based on the excerpts, one based on my understanding of my friend, and another at random.Then let my friends rate the sets of stories from best to worst.Ideal- every reader runs their own personalised AI to filter the flood of content to select personalised recommendations.Why rely on Amazon's algorithm or clunky/manipulated star ratings to pick your next book?Could break the entire online advertising business model if customers no longer rely on third parties to bottleneck access to creators.Open to advice from anyone with experience training LLMs.Not possessive about this idea.Final plugWebsite- www.haldanebdoyle.com (short stories, sign up for monthly email updates)Books- “Our Vitreous Womb” on Amazon and Kobo. A hard science fiction vision of a future where civilisation is rebuilt on pure biotechnology, with a surprising amount of character development according to readers.Early readers compared it to Le Guin, Atwood and Tchaikovsky.Reach out and say hello on twitter too.TRBM is a listener-supported publication.

Why do we use money? How did we get to the point where billions of US dollars can be created by the Federal Reserve with the click of a button for bills that are never printed and have no relation to the finite assets those dollars used to be pegged against? Are cryptocurrencies and the digital blockchain the next evolution of worldwide finance?The answer - according to Omid Malekan - is trust, and on today's episode of Ask Altucher, he and James take this conversation back thousands of years to the beginning of 'commodity money' and walk through its evolution to the present day.Omid has been studying the relationship between trust and money for decades, working as a stockbroker, lead cryptocurrency consultant for Citi Group, professor at Columbia Business School, and author of several books, including Re-Architecting Trust: the Curse of History and the Crypto Cure for Money, Markets and Platforms as well as The Story of the Blockchain: A Beginner's Guide to the Technology That Nobody Understands.If you ever wanted to understand how and why the worldwide financial system operates, Omid explains it all in explicit yet accessible detail. Even seasoned financial professionals will take new nuggets of information away from this conversation.------------What to write and publish a book in 30 days?
