"Teach a man to fish... and woman and kids, too!"

I'm a bit behind on the contest entry and the rules. But, as of this Friday's show, we should be good to go.

As is my tradition, I do not usually hold random drawings. This is for a couple reasons...

#1 is that I do not want to give away a prize of little value to the recipient. I prefer that there is a need and a benefit.

#2 is that I am devoting my time as part of the award. And it is important that the recipient is willing to be a worthy participant in receiving that which I am willing to give.

There are other factors I'm considering. But the main two other than the above issues is that the prize value is understood, and that as benefit is received there is further intention to pass on something resulting from that benefit - a sort of "pay-it-forward" factor.

The vision I have is to be involved in a positive energy that may originate with the StrokeTV movement, but will have wave-upon-wave of ongoing goodwill.

One of my favorite sayings is, "teach a man to fish." Now, perhaps not obvious is the concept that, to me, the word "man" applies to "mankind," and therefore is inclusive of all genders, races, colors, and creeds. So, rather than just give a gift of gear (camera/mic/headset/whatever…) I intend to impart valuable training with the prize package that may be of far greater value.

As training progresses, it is my vision that the prize recipient may find himself-or-herself able to produce a live streaming video show, make videos for YouTube, make podcasts if preferred, or just call a friend or relative in a video call if that is what is most desired.

Not everyone has to be a live streaming show creator. However, having the skills needed to do so, what would YOU do?

We’ll all probably agree - it must be enlightening.

I believe it has the power to change game.

Aaron and I will see you right here in this week’s #StrokeTalkQandA session 11:00 AM PST - right here!

This month, on Friday the 27th, we will finalize contestant entries and announce the winner of our "Live Streaming Starter Kit." We will be awarding along with the starter kit the basic lessons, instructions, and guidance to enable the winner to get started live streaming.

Now, most people think of live streaming as a fundamental for producing a video show. But, it can be significantly different from a way to be an online celebrity of your own show.

Indeed - if you want to have your own show, let's just say I started with less than this starter kit. And, if if this is your aspiration, the prize could get you started on an amazing experience.

But, the beauty of the starter kit is in the initial doors that it opens. As it is, the kit is more than anyone needs to make a video and upload it to Facebook or YouTube. But what the kit does is make the experience even more special.

The fact of the matter is that to even use a smartphone and perform a private video call using Duo (yes, it's a free Google app...) can be enormously rewarding. However, the potential upgrade, if you have a laptop or a desktop computer allows for multiple participants, screen sharing, and other features that cannot easily become features without the simple addons that our kit provides.

Now, as of my last checking, one could not initiate a multiple participant video conference from a smartphone. And there are security issues that I haven't researched. However, I do know you can join other group conversations (YT Hangouts, for instance...) and be pretty safe.

This contest will run for two weeks. The application can be submitted online, and we will provide the URL to the access page. And, I will tell you in advance that the contest will not have a "random winner." However, we will divulge more regarding how the winner will be selected.

Also, depending on what devices the winner has available, the actual prize package may change. For instance, the winner may not have a computer at all, and may use their smartphone as their primary communication device. If so, they may benefit from adjustments in the prize being awarded.

Anyway, for more details and registration/entry opportunity, join Aaron and Roland (that's me...) on the next Stroke Talk Q and A this Friday, at 11:00 AM PST, here at the StrokeTV.net website.
https://stroketv.net/live-stream/stroke-talk-q-and-a-win-a-live-streaming-starter-kit/

Lastly, PLEASE share this event with anyone and everyone who might benefit from a simple hardware upgrade and some basic lessons in live streaming. You never know where the next great show will come from. :o)

THIS IS WHAT I AND MINMAX MEDIA WILL BE FOCUSING ON.

In an effort to help the advancement of communication among online participants, Aaron and I, cohosts of the show, feel that facilitating better equipment is a step in the right direction.

This will depend somewhat on what device you use to access things such as YouTube, Social Media, etc.However, even using a smartphone, your video chats will be improved upon by using a mic of some variety and maybe earbuds. So, the right combination of entry level addons will depend on your preferred method of connection.

Hence, you may not need a webcam if you only have a smartphone. Also, the right solution to get you started will differ depending on whether your computer is a Mac or a PC, or if you are using a tablet.

Some applications are designed to work on multiple devices, and some are limited. However, there is something for everybody. So, if we take steps to "up your game," your experience will expand as well, and better communication will result.

What Aaron and I hope to do is encourage everyone to seek to increase their "talk time," and spend more time connected to more people. In this way, we can be a part of the inspiration to expand in joy, and share more with our friends and communities.

Talking to another person is, by nature, healing - for BOTH people. So, you don't have to be producing a live streaming show. A simple conversation with a relative or friend counts. You don't have to be dressed nice or cleanly shaven. (Grooming rules are a bit less critical. LOL!)

To raise general awareness regarding the superb opportunity that we all have, Aaron and I will be giving away a "Live Streaming Starter Kit." This prize will be flexible based on what device(s) you use, and may be modified accordingly. We are planning on this being a monthly giveaway.

So, this Friday, July 6th, we will be introducing our new contest. And each month, we hope to repeat the prize. To find out how to qualify and register to win, check in at the live event tomorrow, or watch the replay.

We will be showing examples of what our Live Streaming Starter Kit prize will contain. Oh - and private and group instruction will be included in the prize itself.

Obviously, we will not be giving away computers, tablets, or smartphones. (Well, maybe someday...) But, if you're able to watch this show, perhaps we can improve that experience. And maybe we can encourage you to use your new prize as a tool to connect with more people and spread more joy.

This is helping us manifest our vision of expanding in joy and helping people.

Tell anyone and everyone about this. It doesn't matter who they are, or what their life challenges are. Because of shipping costs and International taxes/charges, the prize recipients will be limited to U.S. Residents. However, if Aaron and my plans keep going well, this will soon change. :o)

To all my old and devoted followers, I wish to express my humble thanks for all that you added to my live streaming experience. I am on to the new generation of expression.

Roland

Since the inception of Marketing Smarties we have held certain principles to be regarded as sacred. Among them are…

1) Do what you love, and eventually you will get paid for it.
2) Done Beats Perfect!
3) Get a camera and a mic, and EXPRESS YOURSELF!
4) The Minimum You Need For Maximum Impact!

There are more…

This Memorial Day (Monday May 28th) we continue to celebrate aspects based on these principles, and today we highlight Sue Ferreira who was formally introduced to me by Rosemarie Barnes, perhaps my favorite among the frequent guests who contribute so much to this show.

Sue is the personification of what Rosemarie calls “Confident Reinvention” - not just something that Boomers, such as myself are so conscious of, but, in today’s global environment, perhaps all ages now becoming hyper-aware of the essence of self development in changing times.

Sue Ferreira teaches on important subjects, and as she indicates in her website - “Using All The Tools Of The New Marketing, With A Focus On Video.”

The power of Sue’s presence is expanded by the story of her journey from a dynamic past to what she’s doing today - a truly impressive transformation. And you get front row seats as she talks about it all.

Join us as we ask - AND YOU ASK - the questions to unravel the secrets to her evolution to the online entrepreneur that she is, and the interactive conversation starts with Monday Morning Marketing Smarties, May 28th, at 11:00 AM PST.

See you there! Just click the link at the top!

Marketing Smarties is honored to have this week's guest - Kathy Pop, an awesome innovator of entrepreneurial mindset, and an outstanding example of dynamic reinvention.

Kathy's multiple fields of expertise and experience are vast, and evidence of what can be accomplished by anyone with the right mindset. Kathy has trained in diverse professions, including restaurant/bar management, auto-mechanics, and is a certified mental health worker. These are added to her numerous achievements in the digital world, such as web design, hosting services provider, and various aspects of development and consulting.

On many "Smarties" occasions Kathy Pop has contributed to our shows with insightful knowledge and ideas. In a recent chat, I uncovered some of the sources of her philosophical foundations, and I was a bit surprised that she and I had some considerable overlaps in Universal understanding.

Last week's Marketing Smarties was our season reboot, and Rosemarie Barnes and I explored the concept of confidence. Kathy is the epitome of self-confidence (at least as I see her...), and we get to see who agrees as we feature her on this week's Monday Morning Marketing Smarties!

I wonder what Kathy's up to? Coming up this Monday, we get to ask her.

Regarding life and business, Kathy Pop says, " I absolutely enjoy helping folks to connect with others, start a business, enhance their computer skills, or just to get their life back on track.again."

Let's connect with Kathy and have a conversation.
