There are so many awesome benefits to having a podcast, which is why I took the time and resources to pull this document together. What you are about to create is IMPORTANT! You are about to create something that you own, you have rights to, and have complete control of. That’s power, and how you use it is powerful.
My goal: save you hours and months of research, give you the framework for a successful podcast, and provide you with the infrastructure to create it.
Your goal: Feel confident in creating a sustainable podcast strategy that works for you and your audience.
There are a tremendous amount of opportunities with podcasts, I know. It’s an evolving medium that is only picking up more speed, more listeners, more impact. My advice: take action. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out.

2. Select your show themes/topics
3. Find guests or relevant facts to add value
4. Be mindful of the public/social calendar
5. Create questions that lead to conversations

5. Create the episode by uploading and combining your unique episodic podcast title, podcast description, cover art, audio file, and podcast tags

I get anxious when it comes to time. This 12 square grid helped me wrap my head around how I could take a single theme, word, or area of study and bring it into all of my content, studies, thoughts without feeling overwhelmed.
