My first podcast show aired June 4th 2009.
Like most people start their shows, I jumped in without a plan.
I decided to podcast, recorded a show, and put it on the air. I didn't even have a name for it yet. It wasn't until my third show that I finally figured out the name.
That show stayed on the air for nearly two years and 78 episodes. In that time I had several different co-hosts, a bunch of solo shows, and some cool guests including Mari Smith, Ben Settle, and the great Bob Burg.
It was a good experience to get the show out there into people's ear buds – but if I had it to do all over again I would have done it completely differently.
At that time I had no clue how to monetize my show. I thought a podcast itself was the business and everything else would fall into place as long as I provided a good consistent show.
Boy was I wrong. And it took me way too long to figure it out.
Inside the next Podcast Mogul newsletter you're going to find out why my first three years in podcasting were a complete failure.
And, how I nearly gave up until a friend of mine brought me an idea for a new show and we came up with a game plan to launch it that turned into my first real podcasting success.
Plus you'll get the exact step by step formula I used to launch the Podcast Factory network.
