#20 - Invest In Yourself
Professional wrestling requires a significant investment of both time and resources if you want to improve your skills and advance your career. Dedication to constant self-improvement is essential for success in this competitive industry. Whether that commitment comes in the form of money spent on quality training, gear, or promotional materials, or time spent perfecting your craft in the ring, putting in extra work outside of scheduled sessions, or engaging with fans on social media, investing back into yourself is unavoidable if you want to get better.

#19 - Help Setup The Ring
If you’re looking to keep getting booked on a wrestling show or maybe a show you haven’t worked before, the best thing you can do is ask what time to arrive to help setup the ring. If you can show that you’re willing to get there early, help with setup and teardown at the end of the night. That’s going to give you huge points towards future bookings with that promotion.

#8 - Pissed Consumer Santa Logo
What’s the story behind the Pissed Consumer Santa logo? Funny story about this one. So, I have this cartoon Santa caricature of myself, that I’m currently using as my social media profile picture. In 2017, I was at the Pubcon Las Vegas convention, and a company called Pissed Consumer had a booth there. That week they had a selfie contest for Instagram and Twitter. I submitted a photo and won the contest and traveled home with a really awesome JBL speaker. A few years later, they reached out and asked if they could, turn that photo into something cool. They said it would be like a mascot type character or something for the holidays. A few weeks later I get tagged in a photo and they updated their social media profiles and said check out our new Santa!

#7 - Best Podcast Hosting
If you're looking to start a podcast and you're not sure where to get started, don’t worry I’ve got you. People ask me all the time, “What’s the best podcast hosting platform to use?” and I always recommend Anchor.fm. It’s a great platform, super easy to get started, and of course FREE! If you’re looking for more of a paid solution, and hosting multiple podcasts, I always recommend fireside.fm. It’s quality hosting at a reasonable price, and they have really awesome analytics. If you wanted to create a daily Amazon news briefing, for example, Fireside is perfect for that. Hopefully this gives you a little more insight to get started creating and having fun with it.

#6 - Is Facebook Marketplace Right For You?
It was time to refresh my studio equipment with new monitors, microphones, and a more powerful editing computer. I wanted to sell some of my old equipment, to help pay for all the new things that I want to buy. I went ahead and purchased the new stuff first and then planned to take my time listing things out there for sale. Someone suggested checking out Facebook Marketplace and that it was super easy to use. So far, I’ve met some really awesome creators just getting started in podcasting, music, and even a local tattoo artist. It’s great to see some of that older technology being repurposed to help people pursue their passion.

#5 - AirPods Pro Crackling Issue - How To Get A Replacement
I've never really been a fan of the earbuds that would come with your iPhone. I'm talking about the wired earbuds, like the standard ones that would come in the box. When they came out AirPods Pro, I was super excited and got them right away. A little while ago I did an update on the iPhone and all of a sudden, started experiencing a little staticky crackling noise in my left, air pod. I didn't think much of it until noticing a story about it online. Today we'll look at how to get an Air Pods Pro replacement through Apple's Air Pods Pro Service Program, specifically for these sound issues.

#4 - Upgrading to iPhone 12 Pro Max
For years now I've been hanging on to my favorite phone, the iPhone 8 Plus. Mainly because it had the thumb print recognition and the new phones, didn't have that. I liked using Apple Pay in the stores and with all the masks and stuff, it's been nice to have the thumbprint. I'm not going to say my phone was slowing down, but it was definitely time for an upgrade. When the iPhone 12 Series came out, AT&T had a deal where you trade in a phone and get up to $700 off the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max. I couldn't help thinking... What's the catch?
