The Don't Quit Podcast

Introducing the Get Motivated Series

Hey guys, I'm super excited to talk about my newest section I created for TyypoPrints's blog. It's different from my podcast, and it's not about me or TyypoPrints. It focuses on people just like you who are living their dreams and doing what they love. These are people who come from all different walks of life and backgrounds. From motivational coaches, to freelance copywriters, to other podcasters, to people who are on the path to creating the next big thing.

Now I like to work with people's conveniences and understand these people I want to bring on, and some don't have the most free time on their hands. So I made it a questionnaire to them about these questions:

- What's your name?
- What's your business or occupation about?
- What does your average work day look like?
- What's the hardest part about your work?
- What keeps you motivated?
- What's the best productivity method that works for you?
- How do you recharge?
- What's the best advice you've ever heard?
- What’s something that I haven’t said, but it’s worth mentioning?

This will give you an ideal look of who they are, what they do, and what you can take away from that. A lot of these people are great that I put their information down so you if ever need to talk to them personally, they get to you as soon they can. And if you do, please tell them that I sent you.

To start it off I'm going to be answering these questions myself.

- What's your name?


Nick Mann


- What's your business or occupation about?


Owner of Tyypoprints, motivational print products to make dreamers into doers, host of the don't quit podcast, and children's author.

- What does your average work day look like?


First, I go through email, the news, Facebook (primarily in a lot of relatable groups and Linkedin. Then I go through responding to questions or special requests depending on what's being asked. I plan out social media based on the points I feel that day. Sometimes I have scheduled phone call or Skype. Then I either been writing in my unannounced book or blog post that will then be recorded into a podcast. I haven't been doing it lately, but I look into doing design work as much as I can because that's I love best and that's something I will always be doing regardless of everything else.

- What's the hardest part about your work?


Coming up with ideas that make people want to read, listen, and be a part of. Then finding out some ideas aren't good and having to start something new. I get pretty used to not putting a lot of faith into something because I don't put all my eggs in one basket. Also scheduling and sticking to everything can be challenging, when you're creating so many things every day, it can be tough to go back to something.

- What keeps you motivated?


I love how everything is so unpredictable in my life. When I open my mail or Facebook, I really have no idea what to expect that's what makes my life so interesting. When I hear people liking my work that feel great and lets me know that I am making an impact and what I spend my time doing work.

- What's the best productivity method that works for you?


Is knowing the best times you do the work. I work best at night specifically between 10pm to 1am. By knowing what time you work best, you can schedule your least productive activities around it.

- How do you recharge?


Because I host a podcast, I also listen to a lot of podcasts and most of them are my friends so it is nice to know the show personally. I also walk a lot (at least a mile a day) and this my form of meditation. I think a lot about what's going on in my life during this activity. Not surprisingly, this where I get most of my ideas for about everything in my life comes from. When I don't, I really do feel it. It affects my mood and my productivity.

- What's the best advice you've ever heard?


I made a blog post about the 100 best advices I've heard in the past, but if I had to choose one, it's that we have more control of our lives than we think we do. A lot of people think life is a constant grind - and it can be if you let it. We are stuck by our imagination and our willpower. I personally suffer from this a lot, especially in my career that relies on these so heavily. So really identify problems and then do something about. While you can't solve everyday, you can still make progress - and that's just as good.

- What’s something that I haven’t said, but it’s worth mentioning?

If there's one thing I see in common with a lot of successful people - that their happiness always came from within themselves. This is important to know this isn't about money, objects, spouses, and friends. If happiness came from those things, you become more dependent and a part of you know belongs to something or someone else. Don't get me started when they aren't in your best interest.

Now you're probably wondering how can I be a part of this and you totally can, just email me at nick@tyypoprints.com that you would to be featured, just answer my questions as thoroughly as possible and include some photos of you and your work.

Thank you for listening. TyypoPrints makes dreamers into doers.
