What would’ve made it easier/What would you have changed?

“When I started, I was not really thinking. I was coming from that space. I was not really thinking about the value. I was not thinking about the person’s time, I was not thinking that this person is human being too. I was just thinking about like almost what you can do for me. So I would say like that would have been a big thing that would have probably been more helpful in the beginning to know. You learn that.

And that’s why like we were kind of, I want to say the bidding but you talk about the idea is the person why is this way or is it or something that could be changed. So Maybe I just like kind of contradicted to myself by saying that because it took me awhile to realize that. So that would probably be a big one for me right from the beginning. I am always thinking about value and delivering value to people or my perspective audience. Being a little bit more aware of this person that they are giving me their time and what can I do for them and how can I help them in some way.

What are the first mistakes that podcasters often make?

Making a bunch of money through podcast didn’t work that way. You obviously want to get paid in all the things for what it is that you do but when you start a podcast and you’re thinking like this is going, so be it and I’m going to do this for a bunch of money and I’m going to make a lot of money making by doing this. It never worked that way.

The truth is, there are just a lot of people again that they see this as easy opportunity and they could just create something and they think that they can make money with it. That’s not how it works. With great power comes with great responsibility. Because time is our most valuable commodity. It’s more valuable than money.

If somebody is sitting there, giving me their time, I want to respect that and I want to give them a great experience then hopefully have them walk away a changed person.

What are the most important things to consider?

  • When we are creating a podcast, it’s all about the Audience. So it is truly about the content. It’s about creating good contents. The content that is not centered around us. You have to truly think about the person who is listening and how can you serve them, how can you create or give, or deliver some kind of value to that person. And that is the important thing.
  • Creating content that is valuable with people
  • The importance of engaging with an audience and building a community
  • Engaging with the audience is probably the most important thing that you could do as a podcaster
  • It comes down to really like structuring your interviews and knowing what it is that your audience wants
  • It’s very important to show them that you value them, respect them, that you’re not just looking at what they can do for you or your podcaster or your name or whatever.
  • Just trying to do something be a little bit different. Maybe a little bit funny and it worked. So it’s those kind of things that I think, you know you really need to think about. Just different ways that you could approach it. Be fun. But don’t always be thinking about yourself. That’s so important.

Which podcast should I follow, why and how often?

“I listen to John Shaw occasionally. Sometimes I listen to Dan Miller show. Kate Erickson, she does some really good stuff too. I listen to her show too sometimes.”

What were the last Books on audio you listened to?

“The miracle morning is a great book. I’m not even sure of this other book if it’s in the audio form or not. It’s called the four spiritual loss of prosperity. This is written by Edwene Gaines and this was recommended to me by a friend of mine.”
