Mike Thomas has been working in the TV, Movie and Video production business for over 30 years. He worked with Presidents, Larry King and directed the BBC coverage of the 1st Gulf War. And he's been writing a blog, called TheDailyBoss for the past five years, six times a week.
What I like about Mike is that he makes everything sound so simple. Even thought it's always been super tough. So I try to remind him about how easy he makes everything sound from time to time.
That's when he unveils his best stories.
That's when he unveils stories about how he literally started from the bottom and found his passion the second he held a camera for the first time.
That's when he tells me why he's not Seth Godin (yet), even though he's been writing and publishing his thoughts online for the past five years. By the way, I asked him this question..
That's when he tells me about why his business failed and what the most important thing is when you work with partners on a business.
And a lot of other interesting stuff.
Like the future of content. A future where everybody will be a producer. And nobody will be left to consume content anymore.
Where we won't encourage each other any longer. Because we're all busy producing, instead of valuing each others art.
I just valued someone's art today. I went to Mike's Facebook page, clicked on a link he shared, read one of his articles on his blog, went back to Facebook and liked it. I hope you do the same today.
Mike hopes you'll do the same every now and then. Every once in a while, go to someone's website, blog or whatever and show them that you care. That's the biggest gift you can give someone today.
That's the biggest gift you can give a producer of any type of content today. And Mike knows. He's been producing content on- and offline for more than 30 years..
Thanks again for making a difference and coming on the show Mike! Much appreciated..
Oh and let me know when that book of yours is out. I might buy it. Or maybe I'll just like it on Facebook. Or share it on Twitter. Who knows..?
Mike thinks, writes and spreads his ideas at thedailyboss.com
Mike's favorite books:
"It's not about being perfect. It's about being yourself."
I call interesting people from all over the world, hit the record button, we talk about their stories and I put it online.
Simple, raw & uncut..
