There has been a trend recently of popular content creators online talking about how there are too many blogs, too many podcasts, and the world doesn’t need more.

Apart from the obvious irony, they miss the most important value creators get from creating content. Sure there is a chance to grow an audience and monetize it, but much more powerful is the learning, signaling, and social capital value that you get from consistently creating content.

Discussed in this episode:

- The amount of content on the internet is doubling each year

- Three values to creating and sharing content online.

- Creating to learn

- Creating to signal

In this episode, Praxis Education Director, TK Coleman guest hosts to talk about creativity and HTML.

Most people think of creativity and associate it with inspiration, living in cool neighborhoods, and eccentricity. But in reality, creativity is a lot more about hard work than it is about cool esthetics.

Just like HTML is nothing without plain text, the cool and unique aspects we associate with creativity are nothing without hard work and the simple ability to get things done.

Topics Covered:

- The best creators are the ones who know how to get stuff

- Why some “Creative” people don’t create results

- Creating can be done anywhere at any time

- Creativity is the HTML of handwork

- Don’t ask “How can I become more creative?”

No one has ever been hired for their resume. At best a good resume will get someone curious to find out more about you, but it is the more about you—the background—that will get you hired. 
Instead of a resume, what truly matters is your reputation. Your connections, friends, coworkers, and customers who know the type of work you do will open up new opportunities. 
In This Episode: 
- No one has ever been hired for their resume 
- Why so many jobs go to people who know people at the company
- Doing your current job exceptionally well is the best way to find new opportunities
- Talking about what you love about your job
