This week, what's inspiring Ken Elliot, co-founder of branding and marketing solutions company BKreative Media.
A podcast worth listening to:
I listen to How I Built This by Guy Raz almost religiously. Every week, Guy would interviews an entrepreneur about their journey from business inspection, through growing pains, and how eventually they reached riches and fame with their business. It’s a very inspiring reminder to always be ready for growth when customers find you.
A concept worth understanding:
In BJ Fogg’s book Tiny Habits, he introduces a behavior equation: Behavior = Motivation + Ability + Prompt. While motivation can come and go, Fogg’s concept explains that if there is a prompt to do the task, and the ability to complete the task is easy, then the motivation to do that task will resolve in the desired behavior.
A Twitter account worth following:
A couple of handles I recommend following are @BlackOwnedSC to learn about the history and accomplishments of Black business owners and celebrities from and in South Carolina, and my friend @Ny_The_Creator, who is an amazing WordPress developer and upcoming pioneer within the WordPress community.
An article worth reading:
I recommend reading Darius Foroux article on Why Short-Term Solitude Makes You a Better Thinker. It’s a reminder that your greatest thoughts and decisions come from within you. Giving yourself a moment to think before jumping into it gives you adequate time to plan or analyze the situation before answering the question.
A habit worth forming:
Commit to reading every day. I started reading at least 20 books a year when the pandemic started in 2020. There are so many interesting things to learn and reading helps me formulate new ideas and concepts that I can apply to my personal life and professional career.
