WHY DO YOU LIKE THE SHOW?

  • You immediately become a BFF
  • I listen when I'm getting ready in the morning to do some learning
  • It's great to take those little bits of information with you throughout the day
  • I love your voice! You're so warm + friendly

 

DO YOU FEEL A MORE INTIMATE CONNECTION WITH PODCASTS?

  • It feels like a conversation
  • It's an intimate connection
  • A video is in the background, a podcast in your ear makes you more focused
  • There's a community aspect to it
"You're listening on a different level, it's like they're talking right to you." -Kelly

 

DO PODCASTS HELP YOU FEEL LESS ISOLATED?

  • Yes! It inspires you to take action

  • It can be very isolating to work from home + webinars tend to be more one-sided

  • You get a more intimate level because it's deeper + more personal

  • You're providing useful, actionable + helpful information so I have to catch new episodes!

"I gotta catch it! I gotta learn something!" - Debbie

 

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE EPISODE?

  • Family Circle {Episode 44} - I was blown away! Your parents are so insightful + imparted so much wisdom. It's no surprise that you are who you are! Everything really resonated with me. When your Dad was talking about how we become our thoughts - wow. I knew I needed to hear it. ---Kelly

If you're not listening, you've got to listen! I hadn't listened to any podcasts, but now I can't stop! What resonated with me the most is when you talked about Joe Dispenza. I just read that book + am doing the meditations, so when your Dad said that your thoughts are constantly broadcasting, that really hit home. ---Nancy

  • Devani Freeman {Episode 43} - It was the timing of it. I'm getting ready to do my first challenge, so I took lots of notes! It was such great information! Loved that episode so helpful. ---Debbie
  • Adrienne Dorison {Episode 13} - I'm a story person - and there were so many stories in that! They were all based on the concept of giving back + how that can really change who you are. When I heard it, I thought "YES, people need to hear this!". Having a bigger goal or purpose than yourself brings so much more into your life. In your story, I could literally feel that same defeat you felt. That moment taught you something which teaches all of us through your show. ---Laysa
  • Creating Your First Freebie {Episode 36} - I heard it exactly at the time that I needed to hear it! When you're ready, the teacher will come. I was totally overwhelmed, but you talked about the systems to be able to move forward. I loved when you said, "do what you need to do to move your business forward". It's something I keep listening to so I can really implement it. ---Maureen
  • Jen Casey {Episode 041} - Structuring a LIVE video brought on so much anxiety for me. It was exactly what I needed + gave me confidence. I love that you do the podcasts + showcase all of these different talents. It's so nice to see them + also watch them on video. ---Jessica

BEING COOL ABOUT IT, NOT LAME:

  • Pitching yourself or trying to get guests on your show with lame copy + pasted verbage
  • "Being a podcaster means not being selfish." - Angie Lee
  • It's about who you know + networking
  • Introduce yourself through mutual connections
  • Speak their language, are they all about Fun? Stats? Education?
  • You never know whether or not someone's show is going to blow up!
  • Be different. Give a little extra time. Stick out in someone's memory!

 

"I don't have a copy + pasted message. I take the time to write that person + write exactly what they want to hear based on what I can tell by their personality." -Angie

 

DON'T BE LAME:

  • Don't pitch yourself if you haven't crystallized your valuable offer
  • Build your legitimate company + message so you have a ton to offer on a show
  • Come from a place of authenticity + connection
"Podcasting is about who you know...there are rules, but there aren't rules." -Angie

 

FOLLOW YOUR GUT:

  • Cater your show to your specific personality

  • What are your strengths? Utilize those to book your guests.

  • Providing "Edutainment" - Education + Entertainment

  • Be you on your show. Serious, silly, factual, story-based.

  • i.e. Nikki's intro: how can I be a little bit different in the creative space?

  •  

"I'm constantly assessing - what is me? What do I really want to bring to this industry? And what's authentic for me to do every day?" -Angie
