New Age Influencers
The term "influencers" is sometimes viewed in a negative light. One of the main goals with this podcast is to change the narrative, and to help the masses understand why putting in legitimate effort to cut out your own little corner on the internet is a VERY good thing to do in our new age world, not only for your wallet, but for your own peace of mind, happiness, and future... Every week you'll get access to BEHIND THE SCREEN conversations with social media influencers, celebrities, content creators, community builders, and entrepreneurs. We'll dive into personal origin stories from the guests while extracting the most valuable pieces of advice they've learned along their journey. Have you ever wondered how people got started doing what they're doing? Or how exactly they make money? Or how much work they had to put in behind the scenes before gaining true momentum? These are the types of questions we answer on this podcast. This show is for New Agers. Definition of a New Ager: Someone who wants to maximize life by having as much fun as possible while working towards bigger goals. Someone who wants to take full advantage of the amazing digital opportunity age we are currently living in, and who understands (or wants to understand) that the best path for creating abundance in life when it comes to money, time, freedom, and happiness can be found on the internet. It doesn't matter if your online efforts are related to a current career, interest, business, product, hobby or passion...because in the end...the internet is scalable, your time is NOT. P.s. this is a happy hour style podcast, meaning each weekly interview will have a slightly different vibe based on the guest and their content...but will always be raw, entertaining, and informative. Solo episodes are released on Thursdays to reiterate important lessons learned from the guests. Check out all the past guests on Instagram: @newageinfluencerspodcast

108: You Don't Have To "Go Pro" To Make It - Pavel Barber
Having interest in a sport, hobby, career path, idea, product, etc. doesn't mean you have to become a "top tier player/professional/producer" in order to enjoy it...or to have success with it for that matter. In this episode we speak to Pavel Barber, stick handling hockey specialist and coach. Pavel has dedicated his life to the great sport of hockey, and has done it without playing in the NHL. He's happy and fulfilled every week by being fully active in the sport he loves...and not by just playing...but by teaching and growing the game for others. This is a prime example of how someone can have ultimate success being involved in the category of a thing they most enjoy. There isn't just one way to do things, and there certainly isn't one path.

107: Gen Z Creators: Fixing The Silent Money Pandemic - Taylor Price
Personal finance is one of the most important real world subjects to understand as a human being, yet for some reason it's consistently neglected by the current school systems. This is one of the many reasons why expensive formal education isn't as relevant anymore, and why self-education is taking over... In this episode we speak with Taylor Price, a female member of Gen Z who is changing the game of personal finance. Through her content, she educates and entertains when it comes to learning about credit cards, bank accounts, IRA's, debt, etc. She is filling a gap in the marketplace, and having massive success while doing it. This is a prime example of why the New Age World is taking over. As a 15 year old girl, who would you rather learn personal finance from? Someone you can relate to (who also knows what they're talking about), or someone 50 years older who has been teaching the same things in the same way, without ever adapting to the times? The answer is pretty obvious, and while we all are different ages and in different situations, the point is we prefer to learn from people we can relate to. This is where the world is going, and individuals like Taylor are leading the way. Tune in to hear how she's done it, and how you can too. Episode Timeline: 2:45 What Taylor Is Known For 7:18 Blog + Youtube Beginnings: Breaking The Comfort Zone 9:45 The Secret For Producing Consistent Content 11:40 The Importance Of A "Why" 13:54 YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AN EXPERT 15:31 Monetization 17:22 Gen Z Culture In Corporate America 18:57 Biggest Mindset Shifts Of Gen Z 19:48 Most Powerful Piece Of Advice 21:07 Rapid Sentence Completion Taylor Price New Age Influencers: <a href= "

How I Dealt With An Online Hater This Morning
In this episode I address something that just happened this morning. I received a long voice note in one of my group chats actively throwing shade my way, and saying what I'm doing with this podcast is garbage. I'm turning it into a lesson for everyone to hear. If you want to check it out first hand you can go to my public Telegram station. I also want to say that 99.9% of the messages I receive from New Agers are positive, and I appreciate you so much!
