Permission to NOT keep up with the Joneses, Kardashians or GaryVee! #FOMOFanz 012

On this episode, I was coming off a couple of days with the flu and felt the overwhelming pressure to create content and do things for no other reason than those in my industry were doing so.  That mindset inspired this episode which is the advice I gave myself and hope by sharing will help you realize that keeping up and doing what others are doing, doesn’t help you accomplish your goals or become closer to achieving your success!

Everyone is hustling, everyone is busy, and everyone is creating and doing it all, but if their goals and ideas of success aren’t the same as ours why are we trying to keep up with them?

“My goal for FOMOFanz is to turn the fear of missing out on the joy of missing out by translating the geek-speak and allowing business professionals to embrace change and adopt new technologies and strategies at the right time for them.”

What is FOMOFanz Podcast

For a long time, Brian made it his goal as a technology evangelist, keynote speaker, and tech geek to help his clients and community embrace their Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) with the gadgets, tools and software automation that he uses every day. But most people don’t like change let alone have the time to stay on top of everything. Truth: embracing the fear of missing out is scary.

With FOMOFanz, Brian translates geek-speak. Each week listeners get insights and updates about what is going on with the latest gadgets, technology, social media trends and more.  The goal of the show is to help cure FOMO and ultimately help people enjoy a life full of the “Fun of Missing Out” or better yet JOMO “Joy of Missing Out.”
