[16:07] When I first started out, I didn’t think about ‘Martin Moore’ as a brand. I kind of just did my thing and yapped. There wasn’t really anything where I stood out in front of everybody else. It wasn’t until I started, whether you do podcasts or videos or photos, we all have these little idiosyncrasies that make us who we are. At least for me, and maybe I’m projecting, I would hide those in my vlog because I didn’t want people to hear my stupid laugh. I didn’t want people to make fun of my hair. I didn’t want people to make fun of what I said. I hid all these things that made me who I was, and I was just this bland dude that made semi-interesting videos on YouTube. It wasn’t until I embraced all those idiosyncrasies, those little things about myself that made me who I was, and shared those as part of a daily story that’s when I started picking up traction.
