The phases are the various niches/focuses of the brand/channel. I spent most of 2023 trying to balance out a few of them.

They evolved in their own rights, and this year I think they have a lot of potential ahead.

Going forward I'm changing how I market PolyInnovator. Yes, it is my personal brand, but the meta-niche has always solely been polymathy.

However the main topics have been other, such as the DIY Modegree. It was a form of knowledge management, and then I started my content creation/repurposing newsletter. Which employed my content production system as its main base.

I've been on the move from Obsidian to , after already moving from Notion.

It also has come to my attention that perhaps I need to end the PolyInContent series. It comes with a heavy heart, as I really wanted to make it work. Maybe one day it will.

For now I'll stick with just blog posts, videos, and podcasts as separate pillars. With some crossover when needed.

In this episode I do my 1st ever in person interview. I happened to be able to do it with a friend from the podcast world. Whom I have at least chatted with on the show before, and went on his show #hacksandhobbiespodcast

  • We talked about GoBox Studio, an endeavor he joined up on.
  • A little bit on his own studio.
  • About AI technology.
  • And just simply riffed off each other's energy! haha

I'm actually making some changes to my #Polycast / #Podcast after attending Podcast Movement

While I certainly believe that you don't have to necessarily have a niche to be successful, your array of "sub-niches" DOES need to have an organized theme/meta-niche.

For example I wanted to start creating my Gaming content arm for PolyInnovator, and I always believed in having everything funnel onto the main YT channel. However...
