He shares that he decided to try the platform for 30 days. During that time, he made a Vine a day based around silly ideas he and his roommate came up with. Each 7-second Vine featured a special effect and in 30 days, Zach says he accumulated 200,000 followers. He was hooked by the growth rate.Zach talks about why the challenge of using Vine to tell stories excites him.Listen to the show to find out how Vine works.What Zach's most popular Vines have in commonZach believes his Vines are successful because they include circumstances everyone can relate to.For example, almost everyone has locked the keys in the car or wanted a special souvenir from a vacation.Listen to the show to hear about more of Zach's successful videos.How making Vine videos has changed things for ZachZach shares that as he was working his way through film school by teaching FinalCut, he was introduced to posting on YouTube.

Zach says that Vine exposure has brought him bigger clients, like Coca-Cola and McDonald's, with bigger budgets.Listen to the show to discover why Zach believes platforms like Vine are changing the commercial branding world.Vine's cultureZach states that Vine is very secretive about their analytics. The only metrics available are likes, ReVines and the released loops. He shares that he estimates the average Vine user to be between 13 and 25 years of age—otherwise known as Millennials.He explains that Vine has a diverse collection of categories including a DIY category where you learn how to do a project in 7 seconds and a Comedy category, which Zach believes is the number-one reason people are on Vine.Zach says you don't need any film experience to be successful on Vine.

    Facebook Ads: Creative Ways to Attract Prospects and Customers

    · Social Media Marketing Podcast helps your business thrive with social media

    Do you advertise on Facebook?Are your ads converting?To explore how to better use Facebook ads to reach leads and customers, I interview Zach Spuckler.More About This ShowThe 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 Zach Spuckler, a Facebook ads expert and host of the Heart, Soul & Hustle podcast, a show about generating more leads, sales, and conversions. His course is called Rock Your FB Ads.Zach shares his framework for building leads with Facebook ads.You'll discover mistakes many marketers make with Facebook ads.Share your feedback, read the show notes, and get the links mentioned in this episode below.Listen NowHere are some of the things you'll discover in this show:Facebook AdsZach's StoryOver the last 10 years, Zach has dabbled in most forms of online marketing, including affiliate marketing, direct sales, website flipping, consulting, and Facebook ads.About two and a half years ago, Zach was running a successful vegan food blog called The No Fuss Vegan as a hobby while working a job and studying for a master's degree. As the blog grew, the hours of work that Zach put into developing recipes, and styling and shooting photos for his blog left him feeling burnt out. He liked what he was doing but he didn't love it.Zach took three months off to explore what work made him happy and realized it was marketing. He loved testing his ads, and messaging and building his list. That's when he launched Heart, Soul & Hustle. When Zach started this business, he was committed to a foundational principle: Instead of teaching people theories that worked, his teaching would be grounded in what he had learned through experience.His first digital course came out a few months later. He had been doing one-on-one Facebook ad management using Periscope for promotion. Zach did a Periscope at Starbucks, saying, "I can't really teach you how to make a million dollars. I'm not a six-figure coach. But I have gotten my income up to about $1,000 a week on Periscope. Is that something you want to learn about?" He set up a PayPal button in real time and did about $1,200 in sales.That's when everything started to come together. Zach realized he could own his expertise without faking it. He could be fully transparent and show people what he was doing at his current level, and that approach would resonate with people.Zach's passion has always been ads, and his intention when he started the company was to create a Facebook ads course. However, everybody wanted to learn about live streaming, so he tabled the ads program in response to his market. However, he still launched the program a year later and has had a blast testing everything with Facebook ads such as Messenger, retargeting, and Facebook Live.About a year ago, Zach realized he had become a total workaholic and could use Facebook advertising to help him do the heavy lifting. He scaled up his ad spend and hired an ads manager. Although Zach emphasizes that ads don't do all of the work, his ads nevertheless work for him whether or not he can show up on a particular day.Today, hundreds of people take Zach's courses. His company does launches with thousands of people, they have incredible affiliates, and they've been affiliates. Investing in advertising has opened so many doors that he can't help but get excited about it.Listen to the show to hear about Zach's earliest experience working online.Facebook Ad MistakesThe market has been evolving but marketers aren't all keeping pace. A few years ago, you could run a Facebook ad to a sales page and make money. You could even run ads directly to a checkout page. But back then, most Facebook users didn't realize that a sponsored post in the news feed was an advertisement. Today,

    MJS #028 Zach Kessin

    · All JavaScript Podcasts by Devchat.tv

    MJS 028 Zach Kessin In this episode we have another JavaScript Story, this time our guest is Zach Kessin. Zach is a Developer and consultant. On the server side he works with Erlang and Elixir. On the front end he works on Elm. He also also written a few books for O’Reilly and a video course for Manning available sometime in the fall. He was a guest on episode 57 and is here with us today to tell us his story. Stay tuned! [2:48] How did you get into programming. Zack tells the story about how when he was 7 he asked his mother for a computer. She agreed that if he paid for half of it somehow, then she would help him get it. He Gathered his half by calling relatives and gathering funds. His mom taught him Basic and Logo. He also learned Pascal. While in University he picked up the book Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs and loved it. He talks about remembering writing a HTML forum but not knowing how to submit entries. After college he started working. [4:38] Resources then vs now. Charles adds that if you’re tenacious enough to call your family members to find funding to buy a computer to learn, then you probably have the drive it takes to be a programmer. Charles and Zack talk about how in the 80s it was rare to have access to a computer, and now homes have multiple computers throughout. The resources are more readily available now with the internet. If you’re looking to get into development, there are plenty of great resources. [7:45] How did you get into JavaScript and Erlang? Zach starts explaining by telling how he get into JavaScript before the internet really existed. His first JavaScript program exposure was a loan calculator at a bank. Early on the only thing you could do was validate forms, but over time it grew. He started working for a company writing php. He felt like it wasn’t as functional or elegant as he was hoping for. He found various languages and landed on Erlang. Erland was designed to work for programming telephone switches. Due to phone services nature, It handles high scale, high reliability, has to be upgraded on the fly, etc. Zach talks about how server programming looks very similar to phone line programming. Zach adds that a few years ago he wanted work on some front end and after looking around finally he learned about Elm. He says that he is always looking for what’s new and useful. [14:26] Programming Languages Change the Way We Think Charles points out that it’s very interesting out about how functional programming has played out. He mentions that many JavaScript programmers use functional style programming to help with speed or efficiency. He adds that a fully functional programming language is very interesting and could be helpful. Zach talks about how learning new languages helps adjust the way we think. [16:45] How have you contributed to the development community? Charles starts off with mentioning Zach’s podcast that was called Mostly Erlang. Zach adds that he has wrote two books for O’ Reilly, one on HTML5 and Erlang. He has done some blogging and is creating a video course called Startup Elm. He mentions that he spends most of his time teaching. He admires people who write libraries and sustains them over years, but it isn’t something he sees himself getting into. He adds that having the libraries are useless unless you have someone to communicate about it and teach it. Charles mentions that contributions come in various ways and the community needs those sort of teachers. Zach mentions that he often speaks at conferences and meet ups. Public speaking can be a great way to progress your career. Charles brings up the idea of “Sweeping the dojo floor”. He was introduced to this idea by Dave Hoover. Sweeping the dojo floor means that you’ve got enough experience to talk about the topic, but maybe not fully contribute and so you do things like document code, or write articles and outreach for the topic. Talks can lead to work. You can easily find research papers and do talks on that. Zach adds that sometimes in a community, you see the same speakers over and over and new speakers are needed. Zach also mentions that there are plenty of opportunities to do talks in something other than english. [26:36] What are you working on now? Zach talks about the list of things he is working on. Starting with Startup Elm and it’s live course that will be happening in October. He is also working on a SaSS product for Instagram marketers called SquareTarget. He adds that he has a day job as well. Picks Zach Intrepid Large Format Camera Kickstarter Charles Toast Masters Zapier Javascriptjabber.com/slack

    · Radically Loved Radio | Wellness | Health Coaching

    Zach Slobin has been through a wild journey of wins and losses. He has always been willing to challenge the norm and has never settled for becoming someone that people thought he should be. And by finding the lesson in all of his life experiences, Zach has become a phenomenal speaker, trainer, author and coach. Zach shares so many personal experiences from breaking off his engagement and becoming unemployable to becoming a successful entrepreneur and living his dreams. He teaches the importance of contrast in life and finding the gift or pay-off in every experience. There is so much to be gained from this inspiration-packed conversation. Whether you’re going through a transformation, looking for your soulmate, or simply interested in finding greater purpose and clarity in your life, you will love hearing what Zach has to say. Radically Wise Zach Slobin Growing up in a good family as an aspiring athlete and dealing with injury Lasting only 7 months in the sports industry and being unemployable Finding his calling while on stage in front of an audience of 200 people Blowing $80,000 in cash and living on his mom’s couch Going from being a pack a day smoker to quitting completely Deciding he was ready to meet his soulmate and finding her right around the corner Radically Inspired Clarity Ask yourself, “What’s the gift in this?” to put your life together after loss and depression. Our intuition is always right. It will always lead us down the path of least resistance even if it seems difficult. Having people who support you is a luxury. Ultimately, our life is our choice. The first step in transformation is to look back and see how you’ve contributed to the life you have now. What we feel and what we think are two totally different things. If they aren’t in alignment, we’ll attract what we might not want. Zach Slobin Answers… What is the difference between transformation and self-improvement? How important is it for you to have the support of your peers? Do you think there’s a lack of honest self-appraisal? What are questions we can ask ourselves in challenging times? How can we better our odds at finding someone who is in alignment with us? Radically Loved Quotes “I’ve been willing to ask uncomfortable questions of the world and of myself for a very long time.” “I struggle with the language of loss because I’ve gained so much from those experiences.” “Grace is such a misunderstood skill. It’s important to be ruthlessly honest with compassion with ourselves and other people.” “What else is possible? What might be the gift in this? What else might have you learned from this?” “Am I lovable if I’m completely bankrupt?” “Insanity is not accepting reality, so it’s insane to consider doing something else in the past. Stop thinking about what was and what you think might be. Just love what is.” “Something incredible must be just around this corner for me to experience this pain. Some gift must be right around the corner.” A Little More About Our Guest Zach has started multiple businesses.

    944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

    · The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show With Jimmy Moore

    Ketogenic ultra marathon runner Zach Bitter is our guest today in Episode 944 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”   There's this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he's a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA's 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss his old diet prior to discovering LCHF, his work with Dr. Jeff Volek fine-tuning his diet, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, why running faster races like a 5k doesn't necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won't want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

    Episode 078: What It Takes To Launch

    · The Mind Your Business Podcast

    On today’s episode, James talks with Online Business Strategist Zach Spuckler about the major mindset shifts he has made over the last year that’s enabled him to grow his business exponentially. Zach also shares an effective alternative to doing a really big launch, which you won’t want to miss! When Zach first joined James’ Inner Circle Mastermind a year ago, he worked by himself and had just hit the 6-figure mark in his business. He now has a team made up of multiple people, but notes that it was the inner work he did that allowed him to expand to this. Zach admits that he used to be a workaholic, and that his health started to suffer because of this. He had to step back and ask himself why he originally wanted to start the business, which was to have freedom. Here are just a few of his major breakthroughs: Hire a team Hiring his first VA helped give Zach the systems, and space to grow. During his last launch, he realized that hiring was never an external issue, but he was so busy working that he didn’t know internally what he really wanted. He says that it’s not difficult to find exactly what you want when looking for someone to help; be clear about what you want and need, and put it out to your online community! James believes it’s important to ask yourself what it’s costing you to not hire someone. How could you fill that time and space by doing something else that focuses on the big vision of your company and drives revenue? The internal struggle may get quieter at the level you’re at, but it will start back up again at the next level and will always be there in some form or another. When you think that you’re ready to hire somebody, Zach recommends you trust yourself to take the risk and to handle the fallout if it doesn’t work out, or find people to support you if this should happen. James feels it’s important to know that a lot of people have an illusion that they have to get rid of the fear around hiring or investing in themselves before doing it, but this just isn’t the case. Entrepreneurs are rewarded for taking the risks Remember that other people will love doing the tasks that you assign them, and you don’t have to feel guilty for giving them work. Zach says it was important for him to understand that his team wouldn’t resent him for this and they respect him for giving them work and paying them for their time. As an entrepreneur, you can actually enjoy your life and business, while at the same time empowering your team to grow with you! James likes to remind others that part of the “work” is actually resting so that you can recharge yourself. Charge more money As Zach has “levelled up,” he charges more so that he can create intimacy with his higher-level clients. By charging more, he also attracts the right clients. If you don’t increase your prices, he says that the only thing you’re doing is de-valuing yourself in the process. James adds that so often people base their pricing on what people will pay for the product or service, which can be a mistake as there will always be people that can, or can’t afford it at every level. Zach realizes that as his business grows, everything he does has an opportunity cost and his time is limited. He is careful not to undercharge so that he can continue to serve others through his business. Pricing really comes down to valuing yourself and it’s important to have a logical conversation with yourself and know the true value of what you can offer. There’s an easier (and lighter) way to launch Zach notes that so many people get paralyzed by the thought of launching. Webinars can take many months to perfect, and video series can be expensive and time consuming. You don’t have to get overwhelmed though; by doing a challenge (or a “week long event” as Zach likes to call it), you don’t even have to charge people money for them to have the opportunity to see what it’s like to work with you. When doing a challenge, you just have to show up, give them simple step-by-step tasks and let them prove to themselves, and you, that transformation is possible. Remember, people want to be sold to on the last day of the event, just because you’ve shown them what’s possible. Show your audience what you can do for them and let them decide if you’re a great fit or not! Submit Your Question! LINKS: Plan & Build Your 5-Day $10,000 Challenge-Style Launch

    62: The 3 Phases of Your Transformation with Zach Slobin

    · Earn Your Happy Podcast | Motivation | Self-Love | Entrepreneurship | Confidence | Fitness and Life Coaching with Lori Harder

    Madly in love with his wife. Natural philosopher. Producer of his own life. These three things pretty much sum up Zach Slobin and his insatiable desire to knock, question the everyday rules and then bend life to create massive freedom, joy, and abundance. After weathering life’s natural ups and downs, being lost in “finding his purpose,” and navigating through the inevitable entrepreneurial storms, he can tell you the stories of hitting several physical, emotional, spiritual and financial bottoms. He’s the athlete who almost went pro, but severe injuries kept him from his dream. He’s the top guy who walked away from a good corporate job (and the money), because it was suffocating. He’s the man who wouldn’t settle until he found his soulmate. And he’s the entrepreneur who was so committed to excellence, he created financial freedom at just 34 years of age. Grateful for the lessons all the losses have taught him, one thing is for sure–he can show you how to play the game of life and win it. As a Master Speaker, Trainer and Coach, Zach’s greatest thrill in life is showing people how to go from where they are to where they deserve to be by removing the BS lies they tell themselves, so they can be, do and have ANYTHING they desire. Flashing back with Zach to the ripe old age of 8, it was even then that he knew he’d one day become an entrepreneur. “All the kids were asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. Most said doctors, astronauts or lawyers, but when it was my turn, I said I don't know what I want to be, but I know I want to do a lot of things at once.” A year later, at only 9 years of age, Zach lost his best friend to Leukemia. It was during this tragic event, that had little Zach pondering why the world worked as it did. “I always knew there were greater truths, than what I was being offered.” During his high school days, Zach began to realize that maybe not everyone was as authentic as he wished, but even so, he decided from that point on he would be nothing less than 100% honest. As you can imagine, not conforming to what everyone else is doing at that age, isn't always simple, but taking the high road, Zach refused to change for anyone. Jumping forward to his early twenties, Zach moved to San Francisco and began to emerge himself into his career. At 23, he found himself working in a high-rise with a successful mortgage broker business partner. From the outside looking in, he looked set, especially for such a young adult…but he didn't stop there. A wise friend once told him “You can go through this or you can GROW through this.” Words that Zach continue to live by. Touching on the four realms in which we live in, he shares with us his daily habit that gets him going in the morning. “If I hit on all four categories, no matter what else is going on throughout my day, if I can just build the muscle of hitting those 4 areas, then I am building the muscle of serving my highest value.” Zach is the inspiration and motivation we have all been looking for, to follow our hearts and go after exactly what makes us happy, and nothing less. In This Episode You Will Learn About: Thinking differently Entrepreneurship Authenticity Life lessons Following your dreams Embracing the struggle The 4 realms Learn more about how to upgrade your life and never, ever settle at www.zachslobin.com.

    050: Aaron Fifield – Zach Hurwitz speaks with Aaron about his development as a trader, Pt. 2

    · Chat With Traders · Conversations with talented traders—in stocks, futures, options, forex and crypto markets.

    You may recall for episode 25 I invited Zach Hurwitz back onto the podcast (after being a featured guest on episode 011), to grill me about my own trading progress – well we’re another 25 episodes on now, so I thought it’d be a good point to check in with you and give another update on how I’m tracking… To do this, Zach joins me again for the big 5-0 – and you’ll find the first part is mostly Zach asking questions for me to answer, then we switch it up, and during the later part I fire questions at Zach to answer. And we dive into a bunch of great topics (many listed below). Just to add on this – pretty much every question asked during this episode has been crowd-sourced, so if you contributed a question last week, then there’s a good chance you’ll hear it asked at some point. Two things you should know: Zach is offering a FREE 30 minute, one-on-one coaching session to any trader listening who is, of course serious, and feels as though they could really do with some help. This is a very generous offer, and if you’d like to take him up on it – then send Zach an email, his address is TradingCoachZ@gmail.com. And second, if you have any questions or comments for Zach or myself, scroll to the bottom of the page and drop a line in the comments area – both Zach and I will be keeping a close eye on this to respond and interact with you.
