Hear their secrets to balancing it all while staying grounded.

Stay Grounded and Build a Brand That’s Truly Yours 

It’s hard to explain everything DoctorJonPaul, Executive Producer of the BFF: Black, Fat, Femme Podcast, achieves with their content, but it’s an inspirational feat. DoctorJonPaul somehow manages to balance writing, creating, podcasting, public speaking, educating, and everything in between and has built a brand that people stop and take notice of. 

We hear how they got their start on X originally but expanded to create a web of content and a strong personal brand that goes beyond just one platform. DoctorJonPaul explains why they decided to experiment with different platforms, and we hear about the origin story behind the podcast. 

Creating so much content requires focus, and DoctorJonPaul shares their method for balancing it all and staying focused on what matters most. They also impart some words of wisdom on the nature of social media and why it’s important to stay true to your own brand and priorities.

In This Episode:

  • How DoctorJonPaul became a creator 
  • How to decide what to create each day 
  • DoctorJonPaul’s take on the changes to Twitter/X 
  • The importance of branching out into different platforms 
  • The origin story of the BFF: Black, Fat, Femme podcast 
  • DoctorJonPaul’s advice for creators  

Quotes From This Episode:

I think for me it really comes down to blocking, holding myself accountable and really just staying in tune with and doing the things that make me feel good on a day-to-day basis. Click To Tweet

“The thing that I want to encourage is, don’t put all of your eggs into the social media basket. Make sure that people outside of social media can say, oh, yeah, we’ve worked with that person or we’ve connected with that person and making sure that longevity lives through that versus just a site. @DoctorJonPaul

I block my days. So Monday, Wednesday and Friday, I usually contribute to my podcast. And then Tuesdays, I usually spend pitching articles or pitching stories that I think need to be covered. Then on Thursdays, I’m usually playing catch up before Friday. So that way, when Friday comes around, I’m not feeling super exhausted or feeling overwhelmed. @DoctorJonPaul
