Learning new skills or how to start a business is easy with the right guide.
If you are like me, you have all these ideas about creating new Podcasts or possibly Videos. I love producing new content. The thought of being able to engage with an audience and know that they are looking to be informed and entertained.
One of the new shows that I have created is a Reviews show. I listen to podcasts and on my podcast I break them down and give my opinion. I base it on content relevance, how much it engages me, quality of production and how it just generally makes me feel.
I have another new show in the works. Something that I don’t see a whole lot of. In fact I haven’t seen anything like it. I am going to be doing a show with my daughters. I want to know what their reactions are to the things the adults in this world feel are important, entertaining and even educational. It’s a look at the world through their minds.
I hope that you found this little blurb interesting. I have not been as active on my blog as I’d like to be but you can find me each and every day at rawandreal.podbean.com and coming in the near future I’ll be on internet radio. I can also be found on blab talking about the things that are going on and basically just goofing off.
If you would like to connect with me personally, head over to ripkamedia.com for all the up to date news and services we are happy to be part of. Until next time, Keep it Raw, and Keep it Real.
Today marks an amazing transformation for Ripka Media Group. I have collaborated with two very powerful allies. Both of them bring raw power and real experience to the table. You will get so much value from each of them that you can not help it when you see a straight road to success that these two map out for you.
The first one is Dr. Rob Garcia. He is a Transformation Coach, 8 Time Author, CEO of Blue Dragon Enterprises and Editor In Chief to the worlds PREMIER life coaching online magazine, SHIFT Advance Life Design. Dr. Rob will be releasing Blue Dragon Academy later this week and I highly suggest that you go to bluedragonent.com to register before it is too late.
Next, you are going to want to meet Autumn Clifford. She is a powerful Personal Development and Business Coach and former Police Officer who turned what she learned in service into a kick you in the face template for success. If you want to learn how to think like a cop and act like a BOSS then you need to check out autumnclifford.com and find out how she can take you from average to AWESOME. You will also find links where you can sign up for her 8 week program and if you do it right now you can get 10 weeks for the price of 8. And the coaching doesn’t stop until you get your first client.
Both of these exceptional mentors are featured on the Raw & Real podcast. Head over to rawandreal.podbean.com to download their episodes. You can also find us on iTunes and on our home page at ripkamedia.com. Listen to episode 11 and find out how you can get a discount on Autumn Cliffords 8 week program and hear her explain it herself. So until next time, Keep It Raw and Keep It Real.
No its not a full reinvention of the show.
What the hell is CJ doing with Raw & Real? well I’ll tell ya. I am dropping the daily podcast goal and switching it to a twice a week show. I’ll launch the new episode of R&R with CJ on Tuesdays and R&R 2.0 on Thursday.
As far as content of each show, they will be quite different. I’m going to continue to bring inspiring interviews to you every Tuesday. I’m not changing any of the format and I am going to continue to get better and better each and every week.
Version 2.0 is actually Average 2 Awesome reformatted to meet the show requirements and format of Raw & Real. I decided to change the name of the podcast because of the epic failure of A2A and I didn’t want that to hang in the darkness. I found a winning format in Raw & Real and after testing it out with in the fitness community, I decided that it was a winner.
To find out more about Version 2.0 click on the hyperlink below and have a listen. In this episode I am just reintroducing the show and telling you why I am so passionate about fitness and Bodybuilding to be more specific. So sit back and enjoy.
Thank you for being part of the R&R Nation. Click below to start the show.

MOMMA SAYS KNOCK YOU OUT
NEW KID TAKING DOWN THE COMPETITION ONE BY ONE.
In the world of social media, Facebook has had little to compete with. It has dominated the social media space with out apology and rightfully so. Mark created a winner from it inception and at the time MySpace was just getting its feet under it, a quick little leg kick and the former champ was out.
So what happens when the reigning heavy weight champ gets threatened though. How will Facebook counter punch the new and very appealing contender Blab? I’ll say this, I have no doubt that the Facebook corner doesn’t plan to throw in the towel. But can this young contender sweep the legs out from under the current champ? Of is all of their efforts going to be for not in the final rounds?
I will be the first to say that I am very impressed with how the launch of Blab has gone. I see Blab being similar to podcasting in the early days with the exception that now that podcasting has exposed the business potential, you will see a faster development of high value content being delivered via blab. I know that is how I plan to leverage blab.
In my opinion, google better be highly invested in the success of Blab. With video recording capabilities, YouTube is going to blow up with new videos of people sitting indifferent countries drinking together and those of us who feel that this is the perfect platform to deliver our content.
For now we will watch this young upstart develop into the rightful king of social media. Until then, I am going to work hard to add as much value and content as I can to do my part in raising this amazing social media outlet.
To check out how I plan use Blab, check out Raw & Real After Dark. Come sit down and tell your story and what drives and motivates you to succeed. If you have an announcement or a pitch, bring it. But be real with it because I will call your bull… I want people to know you for you and not for what you do or have to offer. https://blab.im/chris-ripka-raw-real-after-dark-with-cj-ripka

Raw & Real is a show dedicated to telling the rest of the story. we rarely get to see that backstory that sets success in motion. R&R delivers just that….
