In this episode, Lorie and I will be discussing what we have learned from 27 podcast episodes, the ideas, successes and challenges we’ve learned after now completing our 27th podcast episode. After all, first and foremost, podcasts are for sharing ideas and experiences with people (we’ll discuss about this topic as well in here).
So, do you want to know more about podcasting and many other tidbits you can use for your business? Tune in…
What’s In-Store for You:
We are now in episode 28!
It’s been a challenging, yet wonderful experience. Podcasting has opened my eyes to different opportunities and ideas, and frankly it’s quite fun as well. And you know what? We have no plans of stopping.
Podcasting can be an excellent platform, if you have a business to share your message and create authority. It helps you communicate more effectively with your audience and target market, and you also get to share your honest views and opinions regarding various things under the sun.
Of course, I’m not saying that you’ll automatically be good once you start…
In fact, if you’re anything like me, and don’t originally have any experience as a DJ or about podcasting for that matter, chances are you are going to suck at first (forgive the language). But is that a reason to stop? Of course not.
As always, the key here is to learn and forge forward. There are various strategies, modes, ways, and means to help make your podcasts more successful. Believe me—I’ve been on this road for a bit now, and at first in my opinion, I really wasn’t that good at podcasting. But now, we’ve gained a growing audience and I know its only going to continue to grow.
But enough about the starting, lets discuss the things I learned after 27 podcast episodes?
Firstly, you need to be consistent. By regularly recording podcasts, you are able to gain the needed momentum. Accordingly, this is where having a clear system can help.
Schedule when to record and broadcast your podcasts. If possible, record future podcasts in advance, so you’ll have enough episodes—and you can still keep your momentum going.
When I was starting out with podcasting, I didn’t really have a system. That made my life doubly difficult, which eventually made me stop temporarily after a few episodes.
However, when I went back—I made it a point to have a clear-cut methodology this time. And you know what? It has made a complete difference. I have podcasts episodes in the buffer, podcasting is part of our overall strategy—and I’m having fun. In short: Having a system made things a whole lot better. That’s what you should do too.
Here’s another tip: When podcasting (or planning to)—make sure to share your message. Remember this is about communicating. Don’t be too focused on the numbers, as it may only discourage you initially. Learn from the comments you get from your listeners, and do the necessary adjustments. Understand people. This will help you take an always improving approach, which in turn, can help make your podcasts even more successful.
Lorie and I discuss a lot more aspects about podcasting, and why this platform can be useful, regardless of the type of business one may have. Interested? Please tune in…

Personally, I think this problem all boils down to how you handle and deal with problems…
Let’s admit it: Life can be tough, and challenges whether we like it or not, will always be there.
However, instead of letting ourselves be controlled by problems—we can control them instead.
As I always say—solutions are everywhere. It’s now up to us if we want to use them to make our lives better and more successful.
