  • 0:35 – Why doing AND teaching go so well together, these days especially.
  • 2:44 – Why I’ve been thinking about that relationship: the two video styles that I’ve been alternating between at Verbal to Visual.
  • 4:21 – What I hope you get out of this episode: thinking though your balance of doing and teaching (and how you might weave teaching in if you’re not already doing that).
  • 5:30 – Describing what makes the latest Verbal to Visual video (World-Traveling & Self-Publishing: Sketchnotes of The Knowledge Project) different from past ones. Part sketchnoting process and tips, part sharing of interesting ideas (in this case about writing self-publishing in particular).
  • 7:10 – The two audiences I have in mind with that video format: those who came for the sketchnoting tips, and those who came because they’re interested in the topic of the sketchnotes.
  • 9:02 – The selfish need that this style of video meets: I get to sketchnote things that I’m interested in!
  • 10:25 – The alternating style of videos that has me excited in the long run: “sketchnotes of ___” and “how to ___”. Two different ways for folks to find my work and get to know me a bit.
  • 13:50 – Laying out the entire customer journey, and why I feel good about this style of content marketing.
  • 15:44 – Swinging back to what I hope you got out of this episode: thinking through your own balance of doing and teaching.
  • 17:17 – I would love to hear your thoughts on these ideas! Come share them with me on Patreon!
