What don’t most people know about you?
Played Magic: The Gathering on a naval aircraft carrier!
What do you have going on right now?
- Hosts MTG Pro Tutor Podcast (Magic the Gathering)
- Interviewing the pro Magic players and talks to them about tips and tricks they use in the game
- Wanting to build this into something to support his family full-time when he gets out the Navy at the end of this year
- “Every decision you make is either building your own dream or building someone else’s dream.”
- If you pick something you’re not passionate about, when the dips come, it’s easy to quit.
Lessons learned in podcasting
- Growth strategies:
- ○ Started on Twitter – used ManageFlitter and the “follow strategy” (listen in for details!)
- ○ Tweet tips – Shaun and Brian chat about what he does on Twitter to grow his audience
- ○ Went to a big Magic tournament – met people, met the pros and asked them to be on the show
- Ultimate goal: to build a paid membership site for his audience.
