The Gold Mine – Should You Be an Early Adopter?

You’re checking out a weekly segment of this podcast called “THE GOLD MINE”, which is a more intimate, personal, and brief take from me about a topic of my choosing – but typically in the categories of entrepreneurship, growth, mindset as well as my own personal observations about the industry.

If you’re new to this podcast, welcome – you can get interviews and business development/marketing tips on Sundays and The Gold Mine with me on Wednesdays. If you’re a return viewer, thanks for following along!

In this week’s episode, I’ll be talking about being an early adopter in business or marketing. Do you typically get curious about the latest trend, tech tool, or innovation? Or do you wait for others to try it first before you give it a look? In recent years, some of these things have included TikTok, NFTs/metaverse, AR/VR try-on, and livestream shopping, just to name a few.

I’ll be discussing:
– My personal take on early adoption – what do I think?
– Should you try to be more of an early adopter? Or should you watch and learn?
– If you do choose to be an early adopter, how can you do it in a balanced and strategic way?
