Let’s talk about the one app that is the endless stream of content ideas.
The coolest part?
I bet you’ve been using this app on a daily basis and didn’t even realize it was your BEST place to get content ideas for blog posts, Instagram and even email ideas that people love to read.
Which means more comments, replies, likes, shares & even sales.
(This blog was inspired by the “One app to create endless content ideas of my podcast Do The Brave Thing Online Business podcast. Click here to listen on Apple Podcast | Spotify )
I’m going to let you know right now it is not:
- Reels, or TikToks
- Pinterest search bar
- Canva doc’s new AI feature
- Or Answer the Public
The tool that is going to give you the most engaging content that you can ever think of, and is honestly the place that you should always go to first when you’re like, “What the crap am I going to blog about, Reel about, TikTok about, podcast about?”
It’s your Google calendar.
Yeah, your Google calendar.
You see, even if you are not in the business to business space and you’re in business to consumer space, chances are the appointments, the schedules, the to-do list that you have, are very, very, very, very much going to be mirroring those of your ideal client.
So when you’re stumped for what to talk about go look at your google calendar.

See the Google Calendar Trick in Person:
I usually do this exact trick when I could not figure out what to create a reel on (especially when I was posting a reel every single day for 30 days. – Click here to see the results of that.)
For this reel – I shared how I was doing the “toggl challenge” AKA time tracking to figure out why it felt like I was getting nothing done all day.

Of course you could always talk about how you use your Google calendar to plan out your days or weeks – if you have themed days use something like calendar blocking or spark some ideas on productivity because we could all use a lot more time.
