Are you wanting to start a podcast but are overwhelmed by the amount of information about podcasting?

Are you confused by all the technical language, and technology?

Are you frustrated by how expensive equipment and the costs associated with podcasting can be?

Or do you have a podcast?

Are you stressed out trying to create content, record, edit, and upload your episodes each week?

Are you frustrated by the lack of growth you see even with all your hard work and dedication?

Are you burnt out and ready to quit?

Then you’re in the right place. The Podcasting Party is a podcast for podcasters about podcasting.

As a podcast coach, I have seen a huge theme emerge with the women I coach: potential podcasters believe in the message they want to share through their podcast but they lack the confidence in themselves when it comes to learning the technology and starting their podcast. They spend months trying to figure it out, google their way through, and by the time they make it to me, they are stressed out, overwhelmed, and frustrated.

Beginner podcasters come to me burnt out and ready to throw in the towel. The message they once believed in is now dwarfed by the overwhelm and frustration they feel having to produce a show each week.

I’m on a mission to help potential and current podcasters take the stress, overwhelm, and frustration out of podcasting.

I believe that podcasting one big party, and you’re invited. Come join me and let’s put the party back into podcasting!

    Podcast VA Association

    Podcast VA Association

    I am so excited about today's interview. I have two fantastic ladies here to talk to you about Podcast VA Association.
    If you are a current podcaster then you know the dilemma of wishing that you could double your time when it comes to your podcast. But it can be daunting to think about hiring somebody or training, someone. On the flip side of that if you are a podcaster you also know what a big investment podcasting can be. 
    My guests today, Jen and Kelly, are here to talk about how they've created a certification program for VAs and a directory for podcasters so that we can access it and find a VA. If you are thinking about hiring a VA for your show, or have been thinking about earning some extra income, and you love the podcasting industry today's show is for you!

Binge listening

I have enjoyed many episodes, but the one on chronic fatigue really hit home since I am pushing through it right now.
Thanks for having so many great episodes to listen to and learn from as I navigate launching my own podcast.

This podcast was/is such a blessing!

Alana played a BIG part in the knowledge I gained during the preparation of my podcast. The knowledge she so freely shares I couldn’t put a price tag on. (YES, SHE GIVES FREE KNOWLEDGE ON HER SHOW!) From the different types of mics one might need to the encouragement to just get started. She’s amazing! I honestly am not sure I would be where I am without her. Thankful I found her! Truly a God thing. ❤️ Did I start perfect? NO! And I am still learning, but I do wonder if I would have had the courage to start at all had I not ran across her podcast. Totally worth the listen!

Charity Rios ,

Alana does such a great job of encouraging and training podcasters and future podcasters! I learn something valuable from every episode!
