Hear great podcasters share their biggest personal, business, and other lessons they have learned from podcasts and podcasting. Recorded live at Podcast Movement 2015.
Joel Boggess: podcasting is the new networking“Podcasting is the new networking.”—Joel BoggessClick To Tweet
When you have a podcast, it’s often easier to connect with people and start building relationships. This could even mean having a bigger reason to connect with others.
Check out Joel’s show, ReLaunch Show, and listen to my guest appearance on ReLaunch Show where I shared my story of failure and relaunch (a story I have never publicly shared before).
Jaime Jay: it’s okay to feel uncomfortable“It’s okay to feel uncomfortable in podcasting.”—Jamie JayClick To Tweet
Feeling uncomfortable signals some authenticity, which is key to connecting with people. In Jamie’s case, he liked shows more that connected with him in an authentic way. When he started his own show, he tried to carry that same authenticity.
Bak: articulate when you speakPodcasting can help you learn to articulate and speak clearly.—BakClick To Tweet
Like many of us, Bak can sometimes struggle with the mind running faster than the mouth. Podcasting has helped Bak to pace his conversations and communicate more clearly.
Learning to speak well also significantly reduces the need for editing your podcast.
Check out Bak’s show, The FeedBak.
Russ Johns: start and keep moving“There’s a message out there; it’s in your head and you just need to share it.”—Russ JohnsClick To Tweet
Many of us get hung up on trying to figure out everything before we start. It’s also easy to focus too much on the technology. But the most important thing is to actually start and keep going!
Russ knows this well, because he’s currently in the middle of launching a new show, Future Media Association.
Stuart Mackey: the podcasting community is not competition“The podcasting community is not a competition.”—Stuart MackeyClick To Tweet
You might think that other podcasts in your same niche are competition, but they are not! Look at them as community and collaboration opportunities instead of seeing them as rivals.
Get Stuart’s podcast, The Pocket Podcaster. Also listen to my previous episode about making community, not competition; and my episode about podcasting in the same niche as others.
Daniel J. Lewis (me!): create great content
When I started The Audacity to Podcast, I knew that I wanted my focus to be on creating great content for podcasters. When you create great content, a lot of other pieces (marketing, monetization, community, and more) are much easier.
