00:35 What's up?
00:54 We're back, well, I'm back for another brand new episode of Crazy Fitness Guy Healthy Living
01:01 Podcast slash weekly motivation with Crazy Fitness Guy.
01:05 So before we dive into this episode, actually, I'll hold that off for one second.
01:14 Yeah, so to kick off this episode of this first episode of the live stream and podcast
01:22 for 2023, we're going to recap 2022 how some of our, well, mine and Crazy Fitness
01:35 Guy's greatest, a couple of accomplishments
01:39 Well, that's the whole, jist of this episode today, just to kick off the new year in a
01:45 motivated mood, et cetera, and we're going to keep this around 30, 40, 30-ish minutes
01:56 or 40-ish minutes or 30, whichever comes first.
02:03 So sit back, relax, and let's get motivated.
02:08 I mean, I'm already motivated.
02:10 All right, I started at 15, before we continue, I spent this week at 15 business tasks and
02:24 I'm down to 10.
02:27 I want to see if I can get down to nine before I go to karate tonight.
02:32 Maybe eight, I'm lucky.
02:33 Probably nine though.
02:36 Let's be realistic.
02:38 So and I just started back to this, my work year this past Monday and I started with 400
02:49 plus emails.
02:51 And it's my first time ever not looking at my emails in two weeks.
02:58 That's impressive for me, to be honest, because in recent times I've sometimes taken a sneak
03:06 peek, but this time I actually made it possible that I didn't do it, which is awesome.
03:15 It felt good too.
03:16 Because when I came back, I was like delete, delete, delete, delete, delete, delete, delete,
03:22 It was so much fun just deleting it all.
03:23 It was like garbage, garbage, garbage, garbage, garbage, garbage, garbage.
03:27 Oh, look garbage.
03:29 Okay, I'm sorry.
03:30 I got off a little topic, but it's Friday, it's three o'clock.
03:35 That's my first read back and just go with it.
03:38 It's who I am.
03:39 It's my personality.
03:40 So without further ado, just to kick it off and let's go to, sorry, okay, that's not working.
03:58 Oh, it is working.
04:01 My bad.

05:35 And in the past, it was I tried to get it out four days before the free podcast comes
05:47 But now because it's the new year, I am doing it.
05:53 Oh, wait.
05:54 I think this deserves a special, just special reaction.
05:58 Are you ready?
06:01 Are you ready?
06:06 We're gonna do what I'm gonna do.
06:11 Starting next Monday when I publish the episode, it's gonna be a week the premium podcast is

06:35 the free podcast.
06:36 So you can enjoy everything that the free users will eventually get, but at a later
06:45 So you got a whole week to listen to it.
06:49 And yeah, it's gonna be fun.
06:52 So go check that out.
06:57 And yeah, and also, I want to draw one other attention, one other small detail to you before
07:09 we dive into today's episode or show, whichever you prefer.
07:14 Let's go with that.
07:17 Before we jump in, I also want to point out that if you do see the link and bio page on
07:23 social media, there is a broken plan for the premium podcast, but I will be fixing that
07:34 this afternoon today, right after this.
07:38 So you can call me to that because I will do it.
07:42 I've already got five things off my business task list to do today.
07:52 I'm a little lost for words.
07:54 So let's dive into today's episode, shall we?
07:58 So in 2022, and I'm going off at no notes whatsoever because let's just say I made
08:08 a few mistakes with goals last year.
08:15 A lot of them were a little too, I mean, a little way out of reach, a little bit not
08:25 And I admit that.
08:26 So and let's just say I did not do a good job of tracking some stuff.
08:37 I mean, the website numbers, etc., whatever.
08:43 I'm not going to bore you into the details.
08:46 So in 2022, I was featured in 18 total publications, of various different sizes, some bigger than
09:03 others, but it's still great to be featured in multiple different publications, digital
09:12 or not so digital.
09:15 I mean, like paper wise, like magazines, etc.
09:21 So that was great.
09:25 Crazy Fitness Guy also, I don't know if I shared with anyone this, and if I did, you're
09:33 going to hear it again.
09:36 And Crazy Fitness Guy was honored among the 101 best fitness startup companies in Pennsylvania.
09:50 That was last year in February, if I'm not mistaken.
09:58 And so that's also up on the website.
10:01 It's under the awards page, which is also new, which was one of my tasks this week
10:07 to do.
10:09 And so Crazy Fitness Guy got that award, which was cool.
10:15 And I'm actually, Crazy Fitness Guy Healthy Living podcast has reached 1600 total downloads,
10:28 which is awesome, especially because I jumped two different hosting providers.
10:35 One due to personal reasons and two, the analytics was a little unhelpful, just a little.
10:49 What's an estimate of the number of subscribers?
10:53 How helpful is that?
10:56 It's not.
10:57 It's garbage.
10:58 So but and then so but just a little bit.
11:08 But because I jumped those two from those two platforms, the analytics don't come with
11:16 So I had to get so I lost everything.
11:20 I mean, I would say lost everything, but I started back at zero.
11:25 So to be back at 1600 total downloads is amazing to me, especially because it took me I was
11:37 I started this podcast back in April 12, 2020.
11:45 So that means I was on that platform for two years.
11:57 Yeah, two years.
11:59 And it took me to get two years to get to 2000 total downloads.
12:07 Now I and it's only taken me only 10 months to get to 1600.
12:22 So a lot less sweet.
12:26 And I and the reason I paused was just that I was trying to match up the timeframe, etc.
12:32 I can think super fast.
12:37 I'm not the fastest thinker in the world.
12:40 Doesn't mean I'm not smart.
12:41 It just takes me a minute to figure stuff out, especially because I got a lot of thoughts
12:47 going on in this brain, which drives me sometimes crazy.
12:52 Hence the name crazy fitness guy.
12:54 And I'm wearing my swag crazy fitness guy sweatshirt, which you can also get in the
12:59 crazy swag shop.
13:01 And yes, I just did it from home.
13:05 But sorry, but not sorry.
13:08 So the next accomplishment that I well, this is a personal accomplishment.
13:18 I read 18 books.
13:20 And the wait, let me
13:28 sorry, I forgot.
13:30 I read I'm gonna go with the number 17 or 18 books from last year.
13:37 And I screwed I messed that up a little bit.
13:43 I was on the path to getting to 20 books, a little bit over 20 books last year, read.
13:53 However, it did not turn out so well because towards the end of the year, can you guess
14:00 what happened?
14:07 I got caught up in the last minute, the last few tasks of the year.
14:14 And when I took when I went on break on the 16th of December, I actually went I did a
14:25 few extra days of work to finish weren't full days, but just finishing up a few extra
14:32 projects that were and I set up a limit.
14:39 I had a rule for myself that whatever was started last year.
14:47 And I stopped and I came back to that's what I had to finish up for 2022.
14:54 And I had only two tasks left.
14:58 And I was not going to wait until the beginning of 2023.
15:01 Because I did not want to go into 2023 with two crappy tasks from 2022.
15:15 One of them was the rebranding, which wasn't too crappy, but it was just a lot of
15:24 And then but the other one was just so tedious.
15:28 I didn't want to do I didn't want to wait for 2023 to do it because then I'll just put
15:34 it off again and again and again because it's not wasn't a fun task at all.
15:41 To be honest, I forget what the task was.
15:44 It was that tedious.
15:45 It was not that memorable.
15:49 And perhaps I maybe wanted to get make sure I didn't memorize it because I didn't because
15:54 I know I don't I don't want to do it again.
15:58 So way so that's how I ended my year, which I'll say eight of my book reading time, which
16:08 I could have probably still could have squeezed in.
16:11 But I was too focused on the tasks.
16:15 But this year, I mean, it's over 20 plus books.
16:20 Who wants to take that goal?
16:21 Who wants to take the bet with me?
16:22 Come on.
16:23 It's a friendly bet.
16:25 No money is involved.
16:26 Just just a friendly bet.
16:28 We can include a push-up challenge if you want.
16:33 I'm game.
16:34 Come on.
16:35 Let's go do it.
16:36 So yeah, you heard me right.
16:41 Yeah, I'm ready to challenge all of you.
16:47 So yeah, so my new goal for this year is to read 20 books.
16:53 I mean, I'm aiming for 20.
16:56 If I get over 20, that's great.
16:59 And so that's my but.
17:04 But before I tell you the goals of this year, let me go circle back again.
17:09 So that was my personal goal last year that I did it did not make it was it was attainable
17:14 because I was off by two or three.
17:19 Which is not too bad.
17:21 Just like in football, the lowest bias and I feel go.
17:28 It's not too bad.
17:31 Well, depending on if the team was good or not, I mean, etc.
17:40 Because if when you lose a very, very bad, supposedly bad team, it's kind of like you
17:46 guys got cocky on the field.
17:49 I'm just.
17:54 then my other accomplishments were.
18:05 is one of the accomplishments.
18:11 I have been I've been featured on a hundred and forty-four or told guest appearances on
18:20 podcast, etc.
18:23 And my goal was, you know, my you might laugh at this.
18:29 It was a little bit higher, but that was because I had as I was.
18:37 Looking for guest appearances every single day in the past years, but.
18:46 Now I break it up into different parts of the week.
18:49 But so I was off by.
18:54 I hate to admit this, but I was off by.
19:03 So my goal was two hundred.
19:09 I did not meet that clearly.
19:14 So my new goal for this year is to get on to another 40.
19:25 Which I think is doable because I did that last year or so and I've been looking for
19:36 podcast guest appearance so far all this week.
19:41 Sometimes here to here, Monday, maybe five here the next day, etc.
19:49 So I think it's doable.
19:51 And if I surpass it, great and.
19:56 And I'll take it.
19:57 And I get another hundred.
19:58 That's awesome, even cooler, too.
20:00 So I'll take that.
20:04 And what else did I accomplish last year?
20:11 18 publications.
20:14 I don't have a guest.
20:16 I did not do a very good job.
20:19 I did not have.
20:22 Well, I also completed and created more promos.
20:30 Social media for blog posts, the live streams, I rebranded everything.
20:38 And I recreated some of this stuff because.
20:42 One colleague of mine told me that less is more.
20:50 And there should be space on either side of the elements.
20:54 So that's not all shoved in together, butting heads and people's eyes was that I can't read
21:02 So that was one of mine.
21:06 Bigger tasks towards the end of the year.
21:12 So I got that done.
21:13 I also.
21:14 I also found a new one.
21:21 Productivity tool, which can help me be more productive, which can help me be more productive.
21:30 And if you don't believe me, go check out sidekick web browser.
21:34 It's a really cool tool.
21:35 And this is no, it's not a promo for them.
21:39 But I was kind of.
21:47 Out of sorts when I did not have another all-in-one tool so I can have all my apps
21:57 in one place or I should say app.
22:00 All my websites I use in one place and by websites, I mean all the tools and functionalities
22:07 and everything else that makes crazy fitness guy crazy business guy, except for the crazy
22:12 part and I wanted something that I can easily get to.
22:18 So I then just, hey, let's go on YouTube and watch cat videos all day.
22:24 In My case, I love dogs.
22:30 What's the other accomplishment?
22:35 I think I finished a workout program last year.
22:50 It was called six weeks of the work and six weeks of the prep.
22:57 And I finished those two workout programs and.
23:06 I also got my high green belt in karate and I got my first stripe on my high green belt.
23:12 So I'm excited about that.
23:16 Oh, I almost forgot.
23:20 And I also got to be on the oh, can I say it yet?
23:27 Oh, OK.
23:28 Yeah, I'm going to say I was a guest appearance on Avatar, the Last Airbender.
23:36 They have a podcast.
23:38 So and I got to meet Janet Varney, who was the voice of Korra on Legend of Korra.
23:47 And I also met Dante Bosco, who you may know, I mean, as Prince Zuko on Avatar, the Last
23:59 And I think he also played General Iroh on Legend of Korra.
24:09 So it was cool meeting them, which is how many times get to you?
24:17 How many times do you in life do you get to meet two celebrities in one day?
24:22 Slim, very, very slim to none.
24:27 So it was awesome.
24:31 And I think that was it for my accomplishments last year.
24:42 Yeah, as I said, my goals weren't that practical.
24:51 So this year, I am going in a more practical way, which is to get 10 more newsletter subscribers.
25:14 I would like to get 10 more web app downloads.
25:28 I'm looking to get 100 followers on Medium.
25:32 And you're probably wondering, well, how's that practical?
25:36 Well, lately, I've been marketing.
25:40 I wouldn't say marketing, but I've been using my Medium profile for Crazy Business Guy on
25:48 Medium, which is a writing slash blogging platform.
25:56 And I've been using it to read articles from other writers and other publications.
26:04 So just to see what people are talking, I have people writing on the platform.
26:11 And I have 42 Medium followers.
26:20 And I started with 29 last year.
26:25 And I started at the beginning of 2022 with 29.
26:31 I mean, I started at the end of last year with 29.
26:35 So I have gained quite a bit of follower by 12 followers so far.
26:52 So I have 42.
26:54 My goal is to get to 100 so I can go back into the Medium Partner Program, which will
27:03 help to support Crazy Business Guys productions, et cetera, because everything costs money
27:13 these days.
27:14 I'm sure you've probably experienced the high costs of every goshdarn little nook and cranny.
27:21 I've been feeling a lot lately, too, especially because it feels like every company is a nickel
27:28 and diming everyone.
27:31 One of them hasn't...
27:32 I'm not going to name any names.
27:35 Sorry, I sneezed.
27:42 And so my next goal, my other goal for this year is to increase my website visitors by
27:58 And the reason I'm saying 50 is that since I don't have any control over traffic, I mean,
28:07 it could be up to the algorithms, content, and 400 plus other SEO stuff.
28:18 It could spike up at any minute.
28:21 It can go plummet at any second.
28:23 So I felt like 50 is not the weirdest number to pick.
28:31 If I chose 5,000, I might be asking for a little too much.
28:40 Now if I hit the over my 2,000 mark by the end of the year, that'd be really cool.
28:46 But I'm going to go with 50 because, as I said in last year's article, my website
28:55 took a plummeting drop.
28:58 I am not the best in SEO.
29:00 I'm always learning.
29:02 I am not an expert in search engine optimization.
29:06 There are three scary...
29:09 The three words of scary.
29:15 Search engine optimization.
29:17 Hate it.
29:19 one of my other ones is thinking to increase the stores' sales, which I've also created
29:34 promos for social media, which I will be starting to do very soon.
29:42 Maybe today or maybe tomorrow.
29:45 Just keep looking out.
29:46 Keep following me on Crazy Fitness on social media because you'll be seeing the new templates.
29:56 And the reason I haven't...
30:02 And I also want to increase my membership sales, et cetera.
30:11 So for a premium podcast, The Trip of Crazy, there are a few new things coming.
30:20 Let's just say there's going to be new music on the live stream intro and outro and in
30:36 the podcast and in both podcasts.
30:42 So be on the lookout for that.
30:46 And keep checking back in Crazy Fitness Guy because there's more new stuff coming.
30:54 And just to wrap up for today, I just have to do this because just so people believe
31:05 me and don't think...
31:07 A lot of people believe me and don't think what I shared the other day about my being
31:16 co-authored in a published book.
31:23 And if you don't believe me that the book is real, think again.
31:28 Because I got it right here.
31:31 We're going to do this right on camera.
31:33 Are you ready?
31:34 I'm ready.
31:35 It just came today.
31:36 Supposed to come tomorrow, but thank you Amazon for being here early.
31:41 And there, right on camera.
31:57 Book arrives.
31:58 The Art of Connection.
32:02 I wonder where my...
32:05 Let's see.
32:06 Where is...
32:07 Oh wow.
32:08 There are over 300 pages in here.
32:13 And it's not going out in alphabetical order.
32:15 Or does it?
32:16 No, it does not.
32:18 I don't know.
32:19 Let's see.
32:20 Do you want to see if I can find it real quick?
32:24 Let's see if I can find it real quick.
32:34 Not on the...
32:36 I'm not in the first 60 pages.
32:41 Not as far as I can tell.
32:48 This is a big book.
32:58 I know I'm in here somewhere.
33:01 But where?
33:04 Oh, here it is.
33:11 Page 310.
33:12 I'm not kidding.
33:14 Here's my name, right in the book.
33:23 And let's see.
33:29 I'm just going to go to this 310 that I'm not going to burn it for anymore.
33:38 And I'll drop this in the link.
34:00 And let's just share that.
34:06 There it is.
34:11 Let's look at the picture.
