Chris is also the author of “Virtual Freedom.” He was suffering from this ‘Superhero Syndrome’ in 2009, but by the end of 2010 he had cured himself and in the process was building his business faster and in a more profitable manner than ever before.
Chris began the process of removing himself from his business, slowly relinquishing control of different roles until he was completely free. The company continues to grow and deliver service to their customers, while Chris explores new entrepreneurial projects, including a blog where he teaches others how to become a “virtual CEO”. Chris knows how you can get the help you need with resources you can afford. Small business owners, consultants, and online entrepreneurs don’t have to go it alone when they discover the power of building teams of virtual employees to help run, support, and grow their businesses.

What are the most important things to consider?
Well I think first and foremost, you need to try and get as original as possible in terms of your show format, in terms of the way that you are and the way that you put effort into the show because that right there is already a skip in the head to a lot of podcast out there.
I think secondly, you do have to invest a little bit of money now and at least a decent microphone. Gone of the days when you can podcast and be taking seriously anyway by using your iPhone headset. I mean its ok on a hop every now and then but ultimately I think you do need a decent a little bit better equipment which can sometimes be normal a hundred box.
I also think that consistency is a really important factor as well because a lot of people would stop podcast even with good ideas and good quality audio and stuff like that, but they will disappear after a period of time and then they’ll just appear for a month and then they come back for a show. I think consistency is very very key as well.
Which podcast should I follow, why and how often?
I actually done subscribed to any podcast but I’m an adhoc listener. I follow shows but I don’t actually subscribe to any of them. So On my show right now, I’ve got Jay Today with Jay which is unfortunately rap. I love that little short form video podcast. I’ve got smart passive income. I’ve got James Schramco, super-fast business. I have an employable by Brian Clark and I also have New rain maker by Brian Clark.
