32: How to Become a SOCIAL MEDIA CELEBRITY by GIVING with Amanda Bucci  

 

It’s not often that you hear of successful entrepreneurs who never actually planned to be an entrepreneur. And that’s just one of the reasons why I’m so excited to share with you my conversation with YouTube star and “accidental entrepreneur,” Amanda Bucci.

It all began as Amanda was finishing up her nursing degree in college. With an ongoing interest and passion for fitness, she decided to track her fitness progress by creating an Instagram account. Without any expectations of a following, out of nowhere she had 15,000 followers. So how did she attract these people? Through GIVING!

As many of you know, when you post progress pictures, your workout routine, your thoughts etc., you’re going to get questions about how you were able to achieve your results. And with her spirit of generosity, Amanda felt called to respond back (paragraphs at a time) because she genuinely wanted to help. There was no money being made at this point, but that soon changed.

Building a reputation as a coach, Amanda soon started taking one-on-one clients in addition to waitressing. Add studying for nursing exams and Amanda was maxed out. To free up time, Amanda decided to ditch the waitressing and create and sell an ebook. There wasn’t a plan, just a vision and the desire to help others (and help herself as well if she could). Her first ebook, The Ins and Outs of Tracking Your Macros was a huge success and she found in addition to her coaching clients, she was making enough money to cover her living expenses with a little extra.

With a nursing career still in sight, Amanda struggled. She didn’t have the desire or extra time to study. Her passion for nursing had transitioned to fitness. Nonetheless, Amanda followed through, took the registered nurse exams and…didn’t pass. A common occurrence, Amanda scheduled to take the test again, but when the time came take it again, she decided against it. It was time to take her fitness career to the next level (at this point she had already made $50,000 in just six short months!).

Amanda took on more clients, started providing more content and kept sharing on Instagram and YouTube. So how did she do it in a world FULL of social media fitness stars?

Amanda advises to not get discouraged by the amount of people who are doing something similar. There are so many people who need YOUR special message and guidance.

“People want to connect with people. It’s not just the information that people are seeking.”

Amanda feels that people buy things because they like the person they’re buying a particular product/program from. 

“You can still shine your personality through your content in a way that makes you stand out and makes you unique.”  

If someone else is doing something similar…great! But know that you have the power to make it better, different and MORE valuable. A game-changer for Amanda has been her practice of being transparent in so many areas of her life. It’s about giving people a first-hand look into your life… Share your struggles, what you’re feeling and what you’re doing. The more you share, the more successful your community/following will be. 

Being so new to entrepreneurship, throughout her recent experiences, Amanda had never really thought about her long-term financial and impact goals. 

“I was focused on growth. I was focused on being better every single day and providing valuable content.”

Realizing she needed to seek outside help for her business, she joined Lewis Howe’s Mastermind group (where we actually first met). Amanda has learned so much from him and other fellow entrepreneurs about what she wants the future of her business to look like. And one thing that was inevitable, she needed to offer more products and unapologetically charge for them.

While this was difficult at first, Amanda realized that charging someone often guarantees more success, because people are held more accountable. She also reflects that it’s refreshing to know the value of what you’re offering. For example, her new high-ticket coaching services are offered at a higher price point than she’s ever done before. And while fear and doubt creep, in she had the a-ha moment of: 

“I was able to give so much more because I didn’t feel resentful toward the price that I charged.”

And guess what, the coaching services were a success! This doesn’t mean you’re not going to have nay-sayers who accuse you of manipulating or “scamming” people, but at the heart of your business, you know what you’re providing. And don’t forget, there’s always the block and delete buttons, which Amanda has become more comfortable using. ;)

As long as you’re providing (aka giving!) value to your audience (and some free content, too), you have just as good of a chance as anyone to build a successful business.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

Facebook Video Retargeting for Live Video and Beyond  

Do you post videos on Facebook? Have you tried retargeting your live and uploaded videos? To explore techniques for retargeting your videos, I interview Amanda Bond. More About This Show The Social Media Marketing podcast is an on-demand talk radio show from Social Media Examiner. It's designed to help busy marketers and business owners discover what works with social media marketing. In this episode, I interview Amanda Bond, who's known as the "Ad Strategist" specializing in Facebook ads. Amanda also advises top social pros and has taught the ADdicted Facebook Ads course. Online, she's known simply as Bond. Amanda explores Facebook video ads and retargeting. You'll discover how to use Amanda's technique to warm up your Facebook followers. Share your feedback, read the show notes, and get the links mentioned in this episode below. Listen Now Here are some of the things you'll discover in this show: Facebook Video Retargeting for Live Video and Beyond Amanda's Story Before Amanda started working in social media marketing, she worked with big brands such as Pepsi and Labatt. As a salesperson for Pepsi, she went door to door to compete with Coke. After she sent two truckloads of Pepsi to a store for a large sale, Coke sent three. Looking over 110 pallets of pop, Amanda realized that the impact she was having in her sales role wasn't aligned with where she wanted to show up in the world. To move forward, Amanda decided to give back through her local Rotary service club. As the club's youngest member, she was encouraged to become their social media manager. When Amanda started working with her Rotary club in 2013, social media marketing felt like magic. Talking to people on the Internet seemed to create relationships out of thin air. However, Amanda quickly learned the impact of social when she used social media marketing for a live local Rotary event. To promote the event, the Rotary club used traditional marketing such as ads in the newspaper, and Amanda used everything she'd been learning about social media marketing. Throughout the weekend, the club expected 4,000 people to attend, but 23,000 people actually came, largely due to social media. That was Amanda's impetus to change direction in her career and she became a social media manager. As she became more versed in Facebook ads, she found that being an ad strategist was a great niche for her as a math and data nerd. Amanda now teaches and helps other businesses behind the scenes. She loves doing the deep dives into the data, helping people see the story the numbers are telling. Listen to the show to hear about Social Media Examiner's role in Amanda's early social media marketing efforts. What Retargeting Means The words retargeting and remarketing are interchangeable. Most people know about retargeting through the Facebook pixel, which is a tiny code snippet you add to your website. When someone lands on a page with this code, the Facebook pixel sends a message back to Facebook, saying something important is happening. Facebook has opened up new ways to retarget people (or show them content or ads based on prior actions), including video retargeting. Because Facebook has been emphasizing live video and video in the news feed, Amanda is especially excited about these video retargeting features. Anytime somebody sees at least three seconds of a video (recorded or live), Facebook takes note of who they are and puts them into a retargeting custom audience that you can use to retarget them again and again. I ask why you would want to retarget someone who watched a Facebook video. Amanda says it's part of getting people to know, like, and trust your brand. You want to start nurturing conversations that may lead to a sales transaction. As the Ad Strategist, she calls this framework "Connect, Convert, Close." In that connection phase, your audience may be cold (they may not know or have heard of you),

Hannah Gadsby  

★★★★★  Tom Rhodes Radio Review for Hannah Gadsby in ‘The Exhibitionist’

Hannah Gadsby is one of the brightest shining lights on the world wide comedy circuit.

An innately gifted story teller whose tales of awkward humiliation and personal triumph will have anyone from any walk of life or age group howling with laughter.

I first met Hannah 4 years ago in Perth, Australia when we were both doing a comedy festival there together. In July of this year we worked together again at Toomler comedy club in Amsterdam the week before we both went off to do the Edinburgh Fringe festival. Sharing an apartment together in Amsterdam I was privileged to see Hannah tightening up and putting the finishing touches on what would be her Edinburgh show this year, which made the experience of seeing her finished product at the festival even more enjoyable for me.

In this year’s show called ‘The Exhibitionist’ she used a slide show of great works of art interspersed with photos of her growing up through life. It was part art history lecture and part personal journey through her life.

Hannah got her university degree in art history and art is one of her personal obsessions and greatest passions in life. In this episode we talk about art, art history, her Edinburgh show ‘The Exhibitionist’ and the fact that Tom Rhodes Radio gives her show a 5 star review.

It is an extra treat to know that Hannah does not do many podcast chats and that she made the exception to be on mine. I adore this woman as a human being, as a comedian and as a fellow art lover. Her Edinburgh show of 2014 was one of my favorite shows that I saw this year and her stand up comedy is consistently solid powerful laughs every time I see her perform.

It is my pleasure to present to you now the one and only Hannah Gadsby!

64: Rebel or Control Freak? Why We Bounce from Being Overly Strict with Ourselves to Giving Up with Amanda  

Today’s caller, Amanda, wants to know how to stop obsessing about calorie counting, her physical appearance, and working out. Like many of the sessions, you hear on this podcast, the focus of our conversation takes a different direction.

Amanda acknowledges she felt controlled by her parents growing up. And, the biggest thing I taught Amanda is how we often pair certain behaviors with love. For example, we know our parents are supposed to love us, so the way they parent us is what we think is love.

In Amanda’s case, it was being strict because she knew her parents loved her. So, she formed a correlation between being strict and controlling, with love. Her attempts to parent herself, care for herself, and love herself the way her parents did, are a big part of her food and calorie counting obsession. She believes that is how she keeps herself safe, much like her parents thought their strict parenting would keep her safe. It ends up as a fear-based version of safety, and it’s exhausting.

Another thing at play was Amanda’s history of rebelling. When we have one extreme that feels limiting, we go to the opposite extreme in an attempt to free ourselves. Amanda felt controlled, so to move away from it, she was rebellious and acted out to get free of the feeling of being controlled.

Coaches and Health Professionals — are you practicing what you preach?  Are you attempting to save yourself through serving others? You can share your story and help others, but make yourself your own best client. We can’t shift ourselves by saving other people. Remember, it’s important for you to show people they do have a wisdom voice inside, and a part of them that is connected to a pure, untainted heart.

 

Consider/Ask Yourself:

● Are you a bit of a control freak in your life? Are there areas you are obsessive or rigid?

● Do you have an inner rebel? Does part of you act out or engage in addictive behavior?

● Are you in a profession where you are not practicing what you are preaching?

● Is your self-talk negative, and you would like to shift it?

 

Amanda's Question:

Amanda feels mentally exhausted. She wants to know how to trust herself and change her patterns.

 

Amanda's Key Insights and Ahas:

● Her obsessing is her attempt to care for herself.

● She’s afraid she doesn’t deserve a good relationship.

● She believes she is broken.

● She has constructed her persona, and doesn’t know who she is.

● She doesn’t know how to talk to herself.

● She is trying to use her clients to help herself.

● She should practice what she preaches.

 

How to Get Over It and On With It:

● She should talk to herself every day from a place of acceptance.

● She should parent herself in a way that is full of unconditional love and support.

● Attend Christine’s Spring Retreat to help process her old belief systems.

● She needs to be able to lose control and to know she will be ok.

● She needs to read Expectation Hangover.

● She needs to treat herself like she treats her clients.

 

Assignments and Takeaways:

● Identify and deconstruct certain behaviors that may be cross-wired with love.

● Consider getting a pet. A pet is a way to learn about unconditional love without getting into codependency.

● If you are in the pattern of control or rebellion, start a spiritual practice.

Live from the Internet: Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires & You  

We met Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires three years ago to hear about their love story. They met when Jason was still struggling with sobriety, and got married about a year before we first sat down. Since then, they've continued to create new music, moved into a new house together, and had their first child—Mercy. After our recent episode on breakups, we couldn't think of a better duo to take your questions about heartache, relationships, creativity and loss. 

A caller named Rebecca in Alaska wants to know how the two strike a balance between their creativity and their love for each other. "Happiness is the most important thing," Amanda says. "You've got to make yourself happy first, and be the truest self you can, before you can even try and be happy in a relationship." Russ calls in from Adairsville, Georgia to ask Jason and Amanda if they share their works in progress—especially if they write about each other. "If it's true and honest—no rules," Amanda says. "If the piece of art is good enough, no one can argue with it," Jason adds.

We also hear from Lori in Ukiah, California, who lost her husband to cancer. She wants to know about Jason's relationship to his faith these days. "For me, it's about not needing too many answers," he responds, adding he still relies on his faith in God for support. Muhammad from Boston shares his struggle to stay authentic as a Middle Eastern musician playing Americana music. "Americana is America," Amanda says. "Play your folk songs. It's going to kick ass."

Confessions of a Nashville Power Couple  

Jason Isbell was performing in bars before he could drink in them. By his early 30s, he’d played the Grand Ole Opry, joined the Drive-By Truckers, and gotten married and divorced. And when he found himself drunk one morning in a McDonald’s parking lot, he was lucky enough to have just the right person to call: Amanda Shires, a musician he’d chased for years who finally gave him a chance and helped him get clean.

Now they’re more than a year into their marriage, and Jason, a self-described “philanderer in a past life,” is two years sober. But this new life doesn't come without its challenges. Jason's still an Alabama boy learning to be a feminist husband, while Amanda is figuring out where her own career fits in amid his success and their plans to raise a family. 

I went down to Nashville on the day Jason and Amanda were going house hunting, and I spoke to them about love, liquor, trust, and staying connected when everything in your lives is changing.

INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS

On Building Trust in Early Marriage:

Jason: We didn’t know each other very well, and I was a philanderer in a past life, so it was hard for her to trust me, you know . . . I wasn’t an easy person to trust, because I hadn’t been sober very long, and I felt like I hadn’t been a grown-up at that point.

Co-parenting and Family Planning:

Amanda: Generally when a woman has a child, the child is always left to the woman. The guy can go off touring or gallivanting around the world. I understand there’s sacrifice and everything, but I’m still a selfish person. I still want my own career and freedom and time. I want the — and I don’t know how this is gonna work, I guess I’ll see. I feel like if I do have a child, it’s something I’d be very involved in.

Jason: I’ll be there until the baby — or I’m — gone from the earth. I’ll take care of it. I’m not gonna screw up on that responsibility. But at the same time, that motherly instinct when it’s combating the desire to be your own individual person for a woman, I can’t even weigh in on that. That’s just incredibly difficult for me to even wrap my head around. 

Cheating Is Lose-Lose:

Jason: We don’t ignore it, the fact that there are other people vying for our attention. And that when you’re on the road, it makes it easier to think you can get away with stuff like that. We discuss it. If somebody’s worried, we talk about it. And usually if you name something, it becomes a lot less difficult to defeat.

Amanda: Some days, I’m like, whatever he does, I have no control over his actions. Whatever he does or does not do, it’s no reflection on me. . . . Sometimes it helps me to say it right out, or say it in my brain, I’ll feel so bad for you if you f*** this up. I say it all the time.

You’re Stronger Than You Think- Hannah Smith  

For someone in their late 20’s to feel lucky that they were diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, they would have to be a very special individual. 

Hannah Smith is just that: very special, indeed. 

Her story isn’t just one of survival; it’s an inspirational journey of using what many of us might consider a nightmarish situation to then fully live life and recognize the beauty and wonder that exists all around us.

In this episode, Hannah shares her incredible journey and outlook with us. 

From her life before her diagnosis, through the treatment and recovery, having to adjust to a new ‘normal’, and ultimately achieving goal after goal, not just in regards to competing in races and triathlons, but in all areas of her life.

Her experience, attitude and advice are not helpful only to those with significant health challenges, but also to any of us who may get so caught up in our busy lives that we lose sight of what is truly important. 

She shows us all that living isn’t just about surviving, but it is really about Sur-Thriving.

Here are some of the topics we’ll discuss today: What is it like to not know when you’re hungry so that you remember to eat? How absolutely important attitude is in order to live a full life. Who was Hannah’s inspiration? How she managed the emotional cycles of difficult chemo rounds. Her experience with managing self-expectations. How she fends off external negativity. Questions Hannah is asked:

4:52 How did fitness initially fit into your life?

6:57 What happened? 

10:36 How did that make you feel to be diagnosed at such a young age?

14:15 At what point after the diagnosis did you refocus on health and fitness?

15:23 What are some examples of cancer fighting foods you now focus on eating?

16:07 How and when did you approach building fitness back into your life?

19:07 Post-surgery, what are some of the funny things that happened and what do you miss?

24:20 How has your sense of humor helped your state of mind?

27:20 Did people try to coddle you as you worked towards your fitness goals, and if so, how did you handle that?

30:17 How would you advise families of patients regarding getting medical clearance to train?

34:35 To what do you credit your improved running times when you started competing again?

39:53 Have you embraced challenges your whole life or only since your diagnosis?

43:05 Do you live a more fulfilling life because you focus more on things you want to do vs. things you feel purely obligated to do?

46:00 Is there a reason for you that running and triathlons mean so much to you?

49:02 What would you like to say to someone who may be going through a similar situation?

54:01 The Final Kick Round

Quotes by Hannah:

“You can either be bitter and twisted and angry at the situation or you can make the best of whatever time you’ve got left, because at the end of the day, you’re gonna die anyway.”

“I did come, eventually, to the understanding with my family that (my training) wasn’t anything that I wasn’t allowed to do and that my surgeon (had cleared it).”

“I carry a donor card, but I do feel like when I am gone and they cut me open, there’s just going to be an IOU.”

“Ultimately the biggest goal for me is to be as fit and healthy and the best person I can be.”

“Dream big. And if you hit somewhere in the middle, that’ll be alright.”

“Strangely enough, my experience with cancer was probably one of the best experiences of my life. My life is infinitely better after my diagnosis than before, simply because I now look at things and think, ‘Do I really want to do this?’ ”

“Your brain is the only intelligent part of your body. If you give up mentally, what chance does any other part of your body have?”

“You’re stronger than you know.”

“Find what you LOVE to do and build your life around that.”

753 - Enduring Hazing  

Sometimes joining a club is not worth it. Learn about one example of that in this episode.

Slow dialogue: 1:23
Explanations: 3:38
Fast dialogue: 17:06

Rafael: Go away and stop following us. Our club is for boys only.

Hannah: But I want to join.

Rafael: You do, huh? Did you know that to join our club, you have to go through an initiation?

Hannah: Okay, I’ll do that. What do I have to do?

Rafael: You have to endure weeks of hazing. We’ll be putting you through your paces to make sure you’re club material.

Hannah: I’m willing to do that. I can do anything you boys can do. Watch me!

Rafael: I’m not so sure. If you want to be one of the guys, you’ll have to do everything we tell you to do, even if you don’t want to.

Hannah: Everything?

Rafael: Yeah, everything. If we tell you to eat dirt, you have to eat dirt. If we tell you to stand outside in the rain, you have to do that, too. Get the picture?

Hannah: Yeah, I’ve got the picture.

Rafael: If we tell you to pull a prank, you have to do it. If we tell you to streak, you have to do that, too.

Hannah: You can’t be serious. That really crosses the line.

Rafael: We decide what crosses the line and what doesn’t. See? I knew you’d be too chicken to join our club.

Hannah: You’re right. I don’t want to join any club where the members are stupid enough to do all of those things. I’m starting my own club – one where you don’t have to humiliate yourself to get in.

Rafael: Suit yourself. I knew you weren’t club material.

Hannah: Thank goodness for that!

Amanda Ghost  

In our fourth Reversal of the Muse podcast, Laura is joined by Ivor Novello award winning and Grammy nominated, Amanda Ghost. Amanda has earned many strings to her bow; starting out as a singer songwriter, she then went on to be President of Epic Records as well as a successful TV and film producer. Amanda’s co-writing ventures saw her first ever session produce global hit ‘You’re Beautiful’ with James Blunt and she went on to write with some of the world biggest stars including Beyonce, Shakira and Mark Ronson amongst others. Amanda is now the CEO of her own record label, Outsiders and we’ll hear Laura and Amanda discuss the clear absence of female executives in record labels today. Amanda recalls her experiences of being the anomaly in a heavily masculine environment, and also her realisation of how differently women are treated in the work place when they reach executive level. Amanda and Laura consider how the role of the record label has evolved over the decade, and share their frustrations about today’s pressure to write manufactured hits at the expense of creativity and quality. http://www.reversalofthemuse.com/

Dead People Don't Have Any Secrets  

When Amanda* met Sam* in her mid-20s, she thought he was the most interesting person she had ever met. "It was almost like he had tried to live his life a different way," she told me. "I was just enchanted by that." 

Three years into their marriage, the couple found out that they were unexpectedly pregnant...with twins. Amanda says she took on the lion's share of the work at home while also juggling a full-time job that was paying most of their bills. "I was angry with him for not knowing how to help me," Amanda remembered. When Sam was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma while the kids were still toddlers, she says that neither one of them gave it the full attention it deserved. 

"It certainly didn't change the things it should've changed," Amanda said. "Starting with a will would have been nice."

Sam didn't exhibit many physical symptoms at first, but mentally, he started to turn inward after his diagnosis. "He went to this place of living his life in secret," Amanda said. "And not sharing anything about how it was feeling or what he was doing with me." Then, the cancer spread to his spinal column and brain. He was admitted to the hospital and quickly lost consciousness. That's when Amanda discovered, among other secrets, that her husband had been having an affair. She planned to confront Sam when he woke up, but he never did.

Amanda was left with a lot of angerand, as it turned out, money problemsto process. But she had to keep most of it to herself. "My husband was really very well-liked," she explained. "You've got to be this plate for everybody else's feelings about your dead husband." With two young kids and everyone else's mourning to deal with, she says it took years to get around to her own emotions.

Eventually, Amanda remarried. But only after figuring out what she really wanted out of a marriageand her life. Her current husband, Frank*, is completely different from her first husband. She says he only has one deal breaker -- infidelity. But she's surprised to find that the rule isn't as comforting as she once expected.

Hannah Höch: Weiter in die Nacht. Terminkalender 1937-1939 - 28.04.2017  

Mit Judith Adlhoch, Katharina Franck, Pelaar Quartett: Joe Rappaport (1. Violine), Luciana Beleaeva (2. Violine), Gunter Pretzel (Viola), Graham Waterhouse (Violoncello) / Komposition und Regie: Helga Pogatschar / BR 2014 / Länge: 65'31 // Ein Hörstück für Sprechstimme und Streichquartett in acht Sätzen, mit den Titeln Erster Unfall, Zweiter Unfall, Fluchtversuch, Dritter Unfall, Vierter Unfall, Fünfter Unfall, Sechster Unfall, Benzin. In den späten 1930er Jahren ist die Künstlerin Hannah Höch mit ihrem damaligen Ehemann Kurt Heinz Matthies, der als Vertreter vor allem Maschinenbau- und Rüstungsunternehmen aufsucht, oft monatelang im Auto unterwegs. Täglich viele Stunden unterwegs durchkreuzen sie das von den Nationalsozialisten beherrschte Deutschland, übernachten in Privatzimmern, Hotels oder mit dem Wohnwagen auf Rastplätzen. In ihren Terminkalendern hat Hannah Höch, die diese Reisen vor allem für Malereien, Skizzen und Naturbeobachtungen nutzt, die Stationen und Erlebnisse stichpunktartig festgehalten. Landstraßen- und Autobahnfahrten durch Nacht und Nebel, Erschöpfungszustände, Stadtbesichtigungen, Besuche der Ausstellung Entartete Kunst in mehreren Städten – und immer wieder: Autounfälle. Vieles bleibt Andeutung – Familiäres, Privates, aber auch die Schicksale verfolgter Freunde. Der Text des Hörstücks beginnt im Mai 1937, „weg von Berlin“, „nach Dresden, weiter bis Stuppen“, und endet im September 1939: „Jammer! Krieg!!! Jammer! Deutschland steht im Krieg mit Polen.“ Weiter in die Nacht steht wie eine Art Metapher für die Finsternis der Zeit. Es ist das Bild bzw. die Nachtaufnahme einer nomadenhaften, von Unrast getriebenen Künstlerexistenz in einem Land, das dem politischen Untergang, der europäischen Zerstörung und der Shoah zutreibt. Hannah Höch gilt heute als wohl bedeutendste deutsche Künstlerin der klassischen Moderne. Sie entwickelte mit Raoul Hausmann während der Berliner Dada-Periode die Fotomontage und produzierte in der Folgezeit Collage-Serien und Klebearbeiten. Gleichzeitig entstand ihr umfangreiches malerisches Werk, das von Dada bis zur lyrischen Abstraktion in der Nachkriegszeit reicht. Im September 1939 erwarb Hannah Höch in Heiligensee, am Nordrand Berlins, ein ehemaliges Flugwärterhäuschen, in dem sie völlig zurückgezogen die Kriegsjahre verbrachte. Als Sammlerin gelang es ihr, dort ein einzigartiges und umfangreiches Archiv mit Werken, Korrespondenzen und Publikationen zur literarischen und künstlerischen Avantgarde zu verbergen und vor dem Zugriff der Nazis und vor Kriegszerstörungen zu bewahren. Hannah Höchs Terminkalender, die den Ausgangspunkt für das Hörstück bilden, sind veröffentlicht in der insgesamt sechs Bände umfassenden Archiv-Edition Hannah Höch. Eine Lebenscollage, herausgegeben vom Künstlerarchiv der Berlinischen Galerie, Landesmuseum für Moderne Kunst, Photographie und Architektur.

The #1 Go-To Resource For All Things Kombucha (And How Bacon, Kombucha & Alcohol Mix!).  

Did Lindsey Lohan really get drunk on kombucha? How much caffeine and sugar is in kombucha? Can you eat that slimy scoby thing that floats to the top? How can you make kombucha more "bubbly" if you're making it yourself? Can kombucha be used for things other than just drinking? Is it safe to mix kombucha with cocktails or (as I do) to top it off with a bit of vodka now and then? We're going to tackle all these topics and much more in today's interview with Hannah Crum, author of the brand new title "The Big Book of Kombucha: Brewing, Flavoring, and Enjoying the Health Benefits of Fermented Tea" Hannah joined me last year for the podcast episode "Kombucha: Everything You’ve Always Wanted To Know But Were Afraid To Ask.", but since then, she's written the quintessential guide to all things kombucha, and what I would consider to be the #1 resource for anybody who wants to know everything there is to know about kombucha. With more than 400 recipes, including 268 unique flavor combinations, you can get exactly the taste you want — for a fraction of the store-bought price. This complete guide shows you how to do it from start to finish, with illustrated step-by-step instructions and troubleshooting tips. The book also includes information on the many health benefits of kombucha, fascinating details of the drink’s history, and recipes for delicious foods and drinks you can make with kombucha (including some irresistible cocktails!). Hannah Crum is known as The Kombucha Mamma, and is founder of Kombucha Kamp, the most visited website in the world for Kombucha information, recipes and advice. Hannah is also an industry journalist & Master Brewer, directly mentoring thousands of new and experienced Kombucha brewers and providing consultation services for Kombucha start-ups since 2007. Hannah is also a leader and featured speaker in the Southern California Real Food movement, using the "Kombucha Lifestyle" as an introduction to other fermented foods, gut health, the human microbiome, "bacteriosapiens" and more. She ships freshly grown, full-size Kombucha starter cultures to more than 10,000 people worldwide and offers kits and Continuous Brew Packages, the ultimate in convenient homebrewed Kombucha, via her webstore. During our discussion, you'll discover: -A quick review of what kombucha actually is...   -How kombucha affects your liver (and why you should have trace amounts of alcohol in your kombucha)...   -Why nearly all our ancestors drank some form of kombucha...   -How much caffeine is in kombucha, and which chemicals in kombucha balance out any caffeine...   -The true facts about kombucha and sugar...   -What kind of water to use if you make your own kombucha...   -Whether you can or should eat the "scoby" part of kombucha (and one suprising use for the scoby)...   -How to get more bubbles and carbonation in your kombucha...   -How you can you know if you have mold or could be making "bad" kombucha...   -Hannah's #1, most recommended kombucha recipe (that you're guaranteed to have never heard of!)...   -The surprising, some non-drinking ways you can use kombucha...   -How to make an amazing "pork-tini" with your kombucha...   -And much more!

Having just moved to a new city, and busy with work and family, author Stephanie May Wilson knew there had to be an easier way of creating deep friendships as a busy adult. So she wrote out some questions, invited over a few girls she barely knew, and as they answered the questions, they began to share their stories. That first night they laughed, cried, and spoke God’s truth into tender areas of each other’s lives and before they knew it, strangers became friends, and friends became best friends. Those questions became a 6-week small group guide that has achieved the same friendships in communities all over the country. Whether you're looking to start a cooking club with old friends, to go deeper with new friends, or to help a group of girls you lead connect in a deeper way — our lives are so much richer when we have best friends to share them with, and this guide is the perfect way to get there! Click here to download a free copy of the first week.
