-Chasing advertisers, because after several years of direct customer selling and getting disillusioned by my whole work life it left a kink in my personality, makes it extremely hard for me to pick up a phone and call someone to ask for money or make a business deal.
-Stayed away from endlessly repeating "Donate to me" on my radio show and youtube videos for much the same reason, I prefer to simply provide content, laughter and fun for my audience without putting my hand out too much.
-Finding people who are willing to help me, because most who have offered to do so have been unreliable, quit at the first sight of difficulty or were a complete waste of time to train and actually caused delays that wouldn't have happened if I just did all the work myself. (with the exception of 2 people who are so talented that I can't really put it into words, yes I'm talking about you Roy and Christianne!)
-Tend to stay at home and do interviews online rather than driving to locations and meeting people in person.
-Never rented a separate space for my media operation.
-Don't give donations of monetary value to people/organisations/charities I support, instead I give them time on my radio show if they want it.
These tactics have served me well up till now while I've been running a small ship,
However, in order to grow and expand and all this must change and unfortunately due to my avoidance of dealing with these areas for such a long time it's left me with a massive workload and a huge learning curve to undertake at the same time.
So, I'm now ready and willing to ask for and accept peoples help, but there have to be conditions similar to the motivation I have for myself to ascertain whether you are committed or just flippantly throwing your hat in the ring.
These are the jobs I currently do that I would like assistants to do for me so I can focus on other areas:
• Radio Producer
• Facebook Promoter
• Audio Editor
• Video Editor
• Business and merchandising
