Hey, how’s it going everybody? Welcome, this is whistlekick martial arts radio episode 361. Today, I’m gonna give you a quick rundown of some new content that were doing in fact, content we’ve been doing for six months now. My name is Jeremy Lesniak, I’m your host for this show, I love the martial arts and so I’ve… Really I kinda dedicated my life to it. It’s my job, it is my passion that’s why I do what I do. If you want to see everything that I do, everything that we are doing as a team, you can head on over to whistlekick.com and see.

We’ve got a ton of stuff and I’m having trouble thinking of those things because I’m really focused on what we’ve got going today.
I’m excited and it’s not often that we get to put out something new. Now one of the things that I’ve had a lot of feedback on since starting this show martial arts radio, is that people wanted to see me. Ugh, well you may not believe it but I’m a bit shy and a bit introverted and it’s taken a long time for me to kinda get out of that as I do the show. But finally after years, after three years, I was ready. And I have done a little bit of video here and there but none of it was that substantial and I kept playing with this idea of what would I do? What would I do with video? It needed to be something unscripted because I don’t have time to script another show, it needed to be something short it needed to be something that I could do consistently, and it needed to be something that was little different, something fun. Well, starting all the way back on July 5, 2018, I started drinking my 1st cup of coffee live on YouTube. And as I woke up I would talk about something and then usually the last minute or so related it to the martial arts and offer a thought to the folks watching. Well, after six months of doing that people were watching, they would write to me they would let me know hey this pretty good stuff, please keep doing it. Our YouTube subscriber count was going up, everything was working well with it. And so finally here we are just a little bit into 2019 and we are making official. First cup with Jeremy is now in officially spoken of whistlekick project. Que the applause.
Now, what is first cup? If you have not watched it and you can watch it on YouTube we’ll have a link in the show notes whistlekickmartialartsradio.com and we are currently building up and should have the but at least the bare-bones ready for firstcupwithjeremy.com and if you’re familiar with martial arts radio site, it’s gonna be similar you’ll have a link to that days episode if that’s what works for you and were also going to be turning this into an audio only podcast. Because let’s face it, watching me sit on the couch with a cup of coffee is not a tremendous amount of visual appeal. If I had hair, those of you who have never seen a photo of me I don’t have hair, my hair would be disheveled. I wake up, I put on a robe and I make some coffee and I sit down and I record that’s it. It’s very straightforward, very simple and what we were really going for, what was important to me was that it be authentic. I wanted you to see who I was and there are days where, I’m articulate there are days where I am not. There are days where I ended early because I can’t come up with anything to say, we aim for about 10 minutes. There are days where I get 10 minutes in and I think oh I need a couple minutes more and so it goes to 12. But it’s simple and the idea is you sit down hopefully you’ll have your 1st cup of coffee with me do this live right about 630 sometimes, 635 but usually right at 630, I do aim for that. Monday through Friday and hopefully it gives you something to contemplate during the day. I keep a positive somewhat motivational, I’m not gonna try and bring it down but I’m also not going to be anything more than I am not gonna lie and jump up and down and say I am ready to take on the world, because at 630 in the morning before I’ve had my 1st cup of coffee, I am not ready to take on the world. But that’s what it is.
Do I think this show is going to resonate for everyone? Absolutely not but it’s something I’m enjoying doing and because it is unscripted, it’s forcing me out of my comfort zone, it’s giving me something to work on, being comfortable in front of the camera, do I know how that skills go play out in the future? No idea but it’s something that felt relevant so we’re doing it. One of my hopes for the show is that people are writing questions. I would love to get you know, a few dozen people watching every morning and have one or two of you ask a question or two that I can mix in to what I’m talking about especially since sometimes I’m not sure what to talk about. Once in a while, I think maybe three times ever I planned ahead what I was going to talk about. It’s usually something for my life, I look at what happened the day before or what’s happening that day and I see how that relates to me as a martial artist, as martial arts business owner and how that might be of interest to people that are listening or watching. I’ve debuted a couple products on there because it’s easy it can just grab it and hold it up on screen.
So if you want to check out that show, the best thing to do is go to firstcupwithjeremy.com and you’ll see everything.
