Consistency is key but what do you talk about?  How do you come up with ALL of that content??

Josh Pitts is a Loan Officer by trade, but 9 months ago he started an FB Live show #LOLIFE L O Life, as in Loan Officer Life.  Josh’s high energy interviews and content have been a staple every day.  That's right, when Josh decided to start his FB Show he made a point of going live EVERY Day!

How do you come up with enough content to do a show every day?  You learn to “Steal like an artist”.  As Josh explains, Stealing is not plagiarism.  Stealing idea’s OK👍 Plagiarism NOT OK👎🏻.

As a Realtor or Loan Officer, we consume a lot of content from people we respect in the industry.  We watch videos, listen to podcasts, read articles and attend conventions.  How much of the content that you consume is a NEW and ORIGINAL idea?  It may be new to you, but I will venture that most of the ideas you have heard somewhere before.  

Take the ideas that you consume, let them swoosh around and then write your blog post, record your video or podcast with your spin on it!  That's the difference-maker.  Your spin!  You may hear something 100 times but its that 101st time from a different speaker that clicks and makes sense.

How do you get started?  You stop worrying about being perfect and you start.  Although Josh does reference a recent interview with Trish Leto who coaches her clients to “Press Play with Purpose” when they record the “5 Minute Lives”. Don’t just do a live video to do a live video.  Have a purpose, have a message you want to get across and then go live with a purpose!   But as Josh mentions don’t get hung up on the equipment.  Many times when Josh is on location somewhere his phone and earbuds are all he uses.

If you want better equipment go for it, but don't wait for professional and don't try to be perfect.  Remember “Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction” (We can thank Coach Hank Avink with eXp Realty for that little nugget)

In hopes to motivate some of you guys to get started Josh through down a challenge to any of you out there who have been thinking of starting a podcast, or a youtube show or a Facebook live show…Go LIVE on Facebook right now…yes RIGHT NOW!  Grab your phone, plug in your earbuds, open facebook, press “GO LIVE” and go for it.  Keep it short but talk about something…your weekend, you finally overcoming your fear and going LIVE…and then tag @JoshPittsLive and @ModernAgentPodcast in the post so we can check out the video and share it out.

If you have any questions about how to create/curate content for your show, or how to get started with your show please head over to our Facebook page and let’s have a discussion.  I’m sure there are other agents and loan officers out there that have the same question and will benefit from our conversation.

Remember guys and gals, helping agents and loan officers is the point of this podcast.  The podcast is fun but I would love nothing more than to engage with you in real conversations on FB or if you find yourself in NW Florida, In person.
