Podcasting ain't for everyone, and that's a fact.
Today I was interviewed by a guy who I really like. His name is Vernon form the MicScience show.
The reason I like this dude is because he keeps telling people, “If you don't have a business, you don't need a podcast show.”
And you know what, he's dead right.
People jump into podcasting thinking it's going to be a business for them.
But what it becomes is a job with no pay.
If you look up the word slave in the Merriam-Webster dictionary it is defined as “A person who is strongly influenced and controlled by something.”
And that's exactly what most people become, slaves to their podcast show.
They keep working on it, not getting paid, and thinking things are going to get better someday.
That's why if you don't have a business that's producing profits for you, you don't have a customer list, and you don't have an email list – you shouldn't be podcasting.
Not trying to be rude here, only telling you there are other ways to leverage your time that will be more profitable for you.
Podcasting is a great channel to add if your business is already producing profits.
The problem is, when you have a business that's already working, time becomes a very valuable resource for you. They're not making any more of it and you've already got a full day.
How do you add a podcast if you're short on time but you have dough to invest?
