The longest distance between knowing it and doing it.

Image
We never lack knowledge and information because there are 800 million videos and 37 million channels on YouTube. I am very sure you can find any answer on YouTube except those illegal topics. Therefore, what is the distance between knowing something and doing it? The length of the distance is measured by the amount of willingness. In short, how badly you want it. The distance does not change according to the amount of desire, but in perspective, it does feel shorter. We might be knowing too much and that knowledge might stop us from doing it. Knowledge becomes a burden in this context. But without knowledge, we are flying blindly into the unknown. The solution is to learn from others' experiences. That is a much smarter way to learn and remember to do it.

3 Tips Sound Recording & Sound Testing for Behringer C1 and Audio Technica ATR2500x Condenser Microphone

Sound quality is one of the important factors in video creation or content creation. I am not an expert but I am trying my best to learn and record good sound in my video. I did purchase a few types of microphones to test them in different environments and different machines.  As you can see that in order to record a good sound quality, there are basically 3 main factors that we need to focus on. 1. Input Basically is your microphone and the recording device. You can use an external microphone and plug it into your desktop/laptop/audio interface/smartphone to do the recording. Thus, if you use a cheap microphone and plug it into a high-end audio interface, I don't think it will work and vice versa. Especially when we use USB powered microphone or wireless microphone with a 2.4 GHz frequency, we might get some electronic buzz recorded. This can be easily solved with money. As long as you have the budget, you can find a value for money microphone that suits your needs. 2. Environment

This is a very interesting book by Adam Khoo published in 2009. Today is 2022. After 12 years (one economic cycle), the principle of financial management did not change. Only the methods changed according to the social-economic development. In actual fact, Adam Khoo use this method 12 years ago and it still holds up. He talked about making multiple streams of income and he talk about the internet and digital economy. He leverages the internet to scale up his capability to make more money.

Here are a few key takeaways from me and I would like to share them with you. Takeaway 1: Money is a game, do you know the rules to achieve your financial goal? We all want more money.

Lead Generation Before and After Social Media Era

Image
If I want to pick a year to start this topic, I think the year 2005 is just a nice number. Most of the social media platform that survives until the today year 2022 was established around the year 2005. However, the internet was born 20 years before social media. In my country, I remember in the year 2005 I was still using 56k dial-up modem to access the internet and the most used social chat application was ICQ or MSN Messenger. Let's start with the time before social media and people go online because of browsing the internet. If you remember that was the era where dot.com bubble burst too. Everything is so virtual and so unreal. The way to harness or generate leads is through email collection. That was the era of email marketing. Once the person collected the email addresses, then the person can start to start sending emails & newsletters to the potential customers. In my opinion, the 1st version of social media marketing was actually blogging. There are a group of people wh

A resume is a masterpiece of yourself

Image
Maybe you are like me or maybe you are not, but I am sure the majority of us will work as an employee at the beginning of our careers. I started my career as a factory worker peeling Orion skin. For that particular job, I do not need to submit my resume and furthermore, I was only 15 years old. I successfully being employed as a Training Executive and that resume was as plain as a piece of A4 papers. Fast forward, I am still working as an employee for the past 18 years and I enriched my career experiences with a few major multinational companies.  Even though I was headhunted for most of the career opportunities, I will put effort to update and customized my resume for the Hiring Manager. As I mentioned in the title, a resume is a masterpiece of myself and I need to customise it to impress the Hiring Manager that I am the right fit for the job and the company culture. Since the pandemic strike us more than 2 years ago, some of us are blessed because we are still able to put food on the
