  • Jim just returned from a week-long cruise to Mexico with his family, where he did the unthinkable: he disconnected from the internet. No emails, no social media, no work. And guess what? It was life-giving.

    Jim takes us through his journey of digital detox, sharing how he prepared for the trip by turning off notifications, reorganizing his phone, and setting up systems to ensure he could truly unplug. He even bought an expensive internet package for the ship but used it sparingly, only for essentials like checking in on their dog back home. The result? A newfound sense of freedom and mental clarity.

    One of the key insights Jim offers is the importance of preparation. He spent weeks getting his affairs in order, from recording video overviews for his team to writing down emergency contacts for the house sitter. This meticulous planning allowed him to fully immerse himself in the vacation without the nagging feeling of unfinished business.

    Jim also highlights the benefits of automation and delegation. By optimizing his processes and leveraging AI, he was able to step away from his business without it falling apart. This episode is a must-listen for entrepreneurs who feel tethered to their devices and are looking for ways to reclaim their time and mental space.

    So, if you're feeling overwhelmed by the constant digital noise, this episode is your wake-up call. Take a page from Jim's book and start planning your own digital detox. Trust us, your future self will thank you. And if you're ready to take it a step further, reach out to Jim's team at https://Bara.ai to see how AI can help you automate your business and give you the freedom to disconnect.

  • Grace is not earned or deserved, but rather, the freely given love of God. Boom! That's the mic drop moment Jim Carter shares in this heartfelt episode of The Prompt.

    Jim takes us on a journey through his transformative year, celebrating the one-year anniversary of his weekly AI newsletter. But this episode is more than just a milestone; it's a deep dive into the power of grace, resilience, and the joy of consistent effort.

    Jim opens up about his life a year ago—running a digital marketing agency, feeling burnt out, and grappling with financial stress. He was in a tough spot, not being the husband and father he wanted to be. Something had to change. And change it did, but not in the way you might expect. Instead of diving into more work, Jim gave himself something intangible: grace. Inspired by a sermon from his pastor, Jim embraced the idea that grace is an unmerited favor and love from God, a gift freely given. This realization allowed him to pause, quit what no longer served him, and focus on what truly mattered.

    On May 23rd, 2023, Jim sent out the first edition of his AI newsletter, committing to cover topics he loves every week. Fast forward to today, and he's delivered 52 editions with unwavering consistency. Jim reflects on the highs and lows of this journey—weeks where he scrambled to write, weeks he wanted to ignore it, and weeks he had to remind himself to keep it fun and evolving. Yet, through it all, he showed up, delivering value and reconnecting with the joy of the process.

    Key takeaways? Embrace grace in your life, allow yourself to pause and reflect, and find joy in consistent effort. Jim's story is a testament to the power of showing up, even when it's tough. And the results speak for themselves—50-60% open rates and loyal readers who find value in every edition.

    Feeling inspired? Jim invites you to celebrate this milestone with him. If something from his newsletter added value to your life, hit him up on Instagram @causehacker and share your story.

    Here's to issue 100 and beyond! Let's keep pushing the boundaries of what's possible with AI and human connection, one prompt at a time.

  • "Are we creating more value than tech can replace?" That's the burning question Jim Carter tackles in this episode of The Prompt.

    Buckle up, because we're diving headfirst into the hotly debated topic of AI and job replacement. Jim kicks things off with a jaw-dropping example: a tech company slashed its content marketing team from 60 writers and editors to just one editor, thanks to ChatGPT. Ouch. A tweet responding to this story hits hard, suggesting that if AI can replace your job, maybe it wasn't that valuable to begin with. Harsh, but is there truth to it?

    Jim doesn't shy away from the tough questions. He challenges us to rethink the value we bring to our jobs, especially if they're mundane and repetitive. Remember when phone operators manually connected calls? Or when icemen delivered blocks of ice to keep food cold? Those jobs vanished with technological advancements, just like many will with AI. But AI won't just eliminate jobs; it'll create new ones. Think of it as the next evolution, like washing machines replacing manual laundry labor.

    The key takeaway? Future-proof your career by creating more value than tech can replace. Jim passionately argues that those who innovate and add unique value won't fear AI—they'll thrive alongside it. He invites listeners to join his Fast Foundations Slack community, where he shares advanced AI tools and strategies, and offers live office hours for personalized guidance.

    Notable quotes from the episode include: "If ChatGPT can take your content marketing job, you didn't really have a job to begin with," and "CREATE MORE VALUE than tech can replace - THAT is how you future-proof your career in the age of AI."
