Welcome to the Soaring Twenties with Thomas Bevan
In this week’s episode, I speak with  @Thomas Bevan. Thomas is a writer and a crypto enthusiast. He writes a weekly column on  The Commonplace. So much of the crypto world is built around hype, FOMO, and excitement. Yet, much is unknown about how crypto will impact our world and our digital economies. Thomas writes a weekly article speculating what he thinks may happen, and how these changes are going to affect those of us who live in the creator economy. Thomas makes a great comparison of this decade to the  “roaring  twenties.” There are many similarities. In the roaring twenties  (by that I mean the 1920’s) the United States was on the back end of the Spanish flu pandemic and was on the tail end of World War I. As a partial result, we found ourselves in a rebellious new decade where art, finances, and capital was permeating the entire society. In our conversation, Thomas and I speak about the similarities, and how crypto could lead to a similar decade, which he calls  “The  Soaring Twenties.” History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme. Please enjoy this wide-ranging conversation with Thomas Bevan. --- Send in a voice message:

How to Use Leverage to Grow Your Business at Massive Scale with Eric Jorgenson
A few months ago, I stumbled across the work of Eric Jorgenson. Eric had recently published his best-selling book, entitled “The Almanac of Naval Ravikant. In his book, Eric breaks down and articulately conceptualizes the business concepts of leverage, which were introduced to him by a very popular Twitter thread, written by Naval Ravikant. Leverage is a word that gets thrown around a lot, but how do you actually define this concept? More importantly, how do you use leverage to generate massive scale in your business? These days, it’s not uncommon for a one-person business to generate a million dollars of revenue. It’s not uncommon for billion-dollar companies to only have 10-15 employees. How is this possible? In this episode, Eric gives us an in-depth master class on leverage. In addition, we went through some of the specific modules in his course, and he gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the material he teaches. It’s a special privilege given to you as a member of the Copyblogger community. Eric is great. He’s generous, kind, and easy to talk to. Check out his course at The link to his course is in the show notes of the podcast, which is found anywhere you listen to podcasts. I’m excited for you to listen to this episode. Please help me welcome, Eric Jorgenson. --- Send in a voice message:

How Crypto is Reshaping Content Entrepreneurship
Hey everyone. Welcome to the Copyblogger Podcast. My name is Tim Stoddart, thank you so much for joining me. This week’s episode is something different. Copyblogger has always been dedicated to helping you build a better business by creating better content. The internet provides us all with an even playing field in which to write articles, serve our audience, and build a great business. But what happens when the fabric of the internet itself is changing. How do you adjust to such drastic changes, and stay ahead of the curve? To get to the bottom of some of these questions, I invited Dror Poleg onto the episode. Dror writes a weekly newsletter at, and he writes about what the future of work will look like as blockchain, crypto currencies and NFT’s will becomes an integral part of how we interact with each other and make transactions. In addition, Dror has some very interesting ideas on how products will be created and sold. For instance, now that anything can be tokenized, what is to stop entrepreneurs from selling services and products that are broken down to each level. What if you could write a sentence of copy, and be paid through an NFT? What is gestures, or even good behavior can be rewarded through digital tokens on the blockchain? It’s a fascinating topic, and I am so thrilled Dror took the time to speak with us. He’s a brilliant mind and I look forward to reading his newsletter every week. As content marketers, it’s important we keep up with the times. With that, please help me welcome Dror Poleg. --- Send in a voice message:
