    192. Find Your Podcasting Voice

    Starting a podcast can feel challenging because of all the things that have to happen. But the biggest hurdle is often getting over your own negative thoughts about what to say, how to say it, and what to do next.
     
    I’ve found that the sheer overwhelm of trying to figure out what to podcast about and all the other pieces is the biggest part of that negative self-talk. So this week on the podcast I’m walking you through how to find your voice so you can finally get it out there to your audience.
     
    You DO have something to say and there IS space for you to say it. It’s time to do just that.

    191. Before You Get Started Podcasting…

    So you’re ready to start your own podcast. Before you do, there are some things you need to take into consideration. Like any new action you take in business, it’s important to do your homework.
     
    This week on the podcast, I’m sharing a number of questions to ask yourself as you prepare for your launch. Things like who your audience is, what your podcast goals are, how you’ll generate interest, what format you’ll use for each episode, how you’ll get it all done, and more.
     
    Podcasting is a great way to nurture your audience and really educate them, but you need to have a plan in place first. Otherwise you run the risk of the dreaded podfade. Tune in this week to help you get started.
     
    And if you have questions about your specific podcast, you’re invited to join me and other like minded aspiring podcasters on my new Podcast Ease Q&A calls. Every Thursday at 8 a.m. Pacific, from July 20, 2022 through late September 2022, I’m hosting a Q&A call to help answer your questions. I’m hosting the calls on Zoom and yes, there will be a recording if you can’t make it live.

    189. What to Do Before Hitting “Record” on Your Next Podcast Episode

    You want to have the best show possible for your listeners. That means doing a little bit of work before sitting down behind your microphone and hitting “record.”
     
    Yes, that means having a plan, a strategy for your podcast. But it also means doing a little bit of pre-work too. Whether you’re recording a solo episode or a guest interview, much of that pre-work is similar. And doing the work ahead of time will help you feel more organized and save you loads of time when it comes to post-production work.
     
    Listen in for tips on what to do before you hit “record” on your next podcast episode.
