Make a Podcast

“Start by asking ‘why should anyone care?'”

The Anatomy of a Great Podcast

If you want to podcast, podcast. You’re gonna put out a ton of bad episodes before it’s good…so start!

Everybody is saying “How? Just do it!” But what’s that look like? Maybe make a pilot, use it to tinker/improve/get feedback 1st.

If you obsess over the Golden Rule (get em to the end), you’ll keep making the show better over time, and that’s the point.

“Don’t get caught up in the technical side of things. Make sure your content is great before worrying about which mic to use.”

Guns N’ Roses Reunion - Izzy Stradlin - Not in this lifetime - Quote

Izzy Stradlin said recently something really cool ( for the Wall Street Journal )

“As a kid growing up in a small town, I sensed that if I could create music... one day I might make [a] connection with other people around the world,”

Feel so fucking right. I did the same, but never articulate this as a way to ''connect with people around the World'' through songwriting.

I'm a man from croatian countryside and I find myselsf in that quote. Rock N' Roll was internet before the internet.

You see, you start out with a little bit of oil. Then you fry some garlic. Then you throw in some tomatoes, tomato paste, you fry it; ya make sure it doesn't stick.

You get it to a boil; you shove in all your sausage and your meatballs; heh…? And a little bit o' wine. An' a little bit o' sugar, and that's my trick."

e-Commerce Revolution

Open for business
The real second-hand e-commerce started with eBay.

But the truly global and widespread success e-commerce will achieve with Facebook Marketplace.

Launched in October 2016 in the US, in August 2017 in Europe and in November 2017 in Croatia. Still young but very potent service.

Facebook Marketplace is not a facilitator, but a venue, and all sales details like price, shipping or meeting point are between the seller and the buyer. And, yes, both parts are absolutely free from paying a “rent”.

What user can do:

Search by location (spanning 100 miles away) or browse by a category. If you find something you want, you’ll see the seller’s approximate location, but not their exact address unless they tell you

View items for sale (including basic seller’s profile information)

Make an offer (haggling is also available)

Message a seller (for a meet-up arrangement or payment details as Facebook Marketplace doesn’t provide any payment or delivery options)

Save searches or specific items


How to sell on Facebook Marketplace:

Take photos of your item or add them from your camera roll

Enter a product name, description and price

Confirm your location and select a category

Post it

THE WORLDWIDE RETAIL ECOMMERCE SALES ARE ESTIMATED TO GROW FROM $1.915 TRILLION TO $4.058 TRILLION BY 2020.

Cooperative Principles

The co-operative principles are guidelines by which co-operatives put their values into practice.


1st Principle: Voluntary and Open Membership


Co-operatives are voluntary organisations, open to all persons able to use their services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political or religious discrimination.

2nd Principle: Democratic Member Control

Co-operatives are democratic organisations controlled by their members, who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions. Men and women serving as elected representatives are accountable to the membership. In primary co-operatives members have equal voting rights (one member, one vote) and co-operatives at other levels are also organised in a democratic manner.

3rd Principle: Member Economic Participation


Members contribute equitably to, and democratically control, the capital of their co-operative. At least part of that capital is usually the common property of the co-operative. Members usually receive limited compensation, if any, on capital subscribed as a condition of membership. Members allocate surpluses for any or all of the following purposes: developing their co-operative, possibly by setting up reserves, part of which at least would be indivisible; benefiting members in proportion to their transactions with the co-operative; and supporting other activities approved by the membership.

4th Principle: Autonomy and Independence

Co-operatives are autonomous, self-help organisations controlled by their members. If they enter to agreements with other organisations, including governments, or raise capital from external sources, they do so on terms that ensure democratic control by their members and maintain their co-operative autonomy.

5th Principle: Education, Training and Information

Co-operatives provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers, and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their co-operatives. They inform the general public – particularly young people and opinion leaders – about the nature and benefits of co-operation.

6th Principle: Co-operation among Co-operatives

Co-operatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the co-operative movement by working together through local, national, regional and international structures.

7th Principle: Concern for Community

Co-operatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies approved by their members.
