Hey, girl Hey, did you see the Superbowl it just got over and I live in Warrensburg Missouri, which means I by default right now and I can see see bands

Jeanette Peterson 1:09

but I bet you saw a ton of commercial I know that a lot of people are just like, I'm just gonna pay for the commercial. I don't want to do anything else. I really care who's playing? I don't care about anything about football, which is me. I really don't care about football. But I liked this pizzazz, right and some people are just for their for commercials. Now.

Jeanette Peterson 1:33

Let's talk about what being consumer versus producer. If you're a consumer, you're somebody who is buying things looking at things rolling, taking in information.

Jeanette Peterson 1:46

You're more satisfied on short term things.

Jeanette Peterson 1:50

Because being a consumer, it just like oh, it's shiny thing. Ooh, this over here. Ooh, this over that. Oh, I want to do this. Oh, I'm gonna do that. Well, this first being a producer, which means intentional spending intentional things that you're doing and the reason you're doing things is not for just self love or self, self, whatever. It's for the greater good of society and for others and to leave a legacy and long term success. Being a producer you are producing content, right? If we're a small business, if we're a personal brand, I'm talking to you.

Jeanette Peterson 2:28

Okay, and if that's the case that we are very intentional about what we are putting into our minds, what we're looking at what we're consuming what we're using on the feed, there's a reason to call it because it kind of feeds your mind with other things. Listen to wasn't I'm not playing with y'all. This is called a feed or a music. Okay. So stop consuming, eating the feed unless you're consuming with a mindset of producing afterwards.

Jeanette Peterson 3:01

I'm going to look at something to spark my creativity to do something like that not just Mindlessly scrolling, eating all the little nuggets that are out there for us.

Jeanette Peterson 3:16

So really, what we want to do is be a prosumer, right, a producer and consumer, but it has to be very intentional with what we're doing. So a prosumer is someone who's both a consumer and a producer, even to have the balance, but it's about taking it and giving back. It's not about doing things just to do things, being very intentional with your spending, focusing on buying things, focusing on things that will help you get to the next level and also being intentional with your time and your energy and the skills that you need to get to that next level of business or personal development whatever that is. So I want you to be very intentional about being a producer or consumer and think about what when you are are you Mindlessly scrolling? Are you just listening to this because you're doing something else? If you're listening to this podcast, I want you to be listening with the mindset of being a producer. I want you to listen to this podcast thinking okay these are the things I need to do to better my life to better my business. These are things that I'm going to uplevel myself, I'm just not listening to this. Just listen because Jeanette says great things. I mean, obviously I do, but I need you guys to really think about, Okay, I'm going to be a producer and stop consuming content. I have very strict time boundaries about when I'm on my phone, how I'm on my phone, what I'm looking at on my phone, who I'm following on my phone, who I'm reading their stories, what are the stories I don't watch everybody's stories. If I'm watching your stories, that means you're very special to me. So I need you to realize that I'm not going to just watch everybody's stories because I have to have boundaries around what I'm ingesting. I have a very sensitive spirit. It gets very, it's very sensitive to negativity. It's very sensitive to hurtful things. It's very sensitive to rude things. Like just various things. It's very sensitive to so I have to know and be putting a block on things that I cannot watch. I cannot watch everything. I cannot be around everybody. I cannot see everything that people are doing. I just can't negativity is one of those things that I just got to cut it out. So I need you to realize that when you're a consumer, it's affected me deeper than you may know. Deeper than you may know it may have you stuck in a place where you don't want to be. So I need you to if you're going to be a small business if you're going to be a personal brand you need to be producing content, the content so they can know like and trust you but you cannot be producing and consuming at the same time.

Jeanette Peterson 5:45

Okay, if you do have to put on your blinders, you have to put up the edge of protection before you just Mindlessly scrolling.

So becoming a producer can lead to lots of fulfillment and success. And by adopting that producer mentality and balancing it with smart choices, you can actually create a lot of value and make a positive impact on the world around you through your kid through your your relationships through anything that you're selling, because you will have the best version of what you can create. It's coming straight from you. It is not a copycat it's not something that you envision from somebody else. It is a cure from God to use spiritual outpour of whatever product you're made to do on Earth. And I want you to continue doing because being a producer and being a creator, is what our creator needs us to do. We are here to create. So I want us to continuously be creating and building but from the way that he is giving us those specific downloads of information on how exactly he wants us to build for His Kingdom. Because that's what we're here. We're here to further his kingdom mission on earth. And I want you to continuously be a producer and not a consumer. I mean some of those Christianity, I'm using air quotes here. Some of those Christian things are bad inherently but they may be something for you. That's not good. So I want you to be able to do have to have the Holy Spirit you have to be discerning, you cannot be just mindlessly consuming. So let's start producing. I'm actually going to do a 365 day reels challenge started yesterday. So they're putting my real for today, but you know what?

Jeanette Peterson 7:30

I'm gonna do it. I'm going to be a producer. I'm going to produce content. I'm gonna love it. And it's going to be just genuine, pure content from how I feel called to do it. It's not going to be I'm not going to follow anybody's advice. I'm not going to be lazy. That is just pure content from what my life is how God is telling me to produce content and I'm just gonna do that. I'm not by anybody else. I have a lot of strategy in my head but you know what, sometimes God does the best one. So become a producer. If you want to do the challenge with me DM me because I'm so down. I want an accountability partner. But yeah, so see you guys over the grams. that Peter Wow, that was so good. so I know that you know somebody that also needs to hear that.
