It's no secret, launching your own podcast show is a lot of work.
If you don't know where to start the learning curve could be crippling.
In my work I've found three main areas where people struggle.
Area #1: Tech – You don't know what equipment you need to get started. If you're not careful you'll end up spending an arm and a leg building a studio.
Area #2: Topics – You want to get started but you're afraid you won't know what to say and you're scared you'll bore your listeners.
Area #3: Making Dough – You've heard all the hype about podcasting being a great way to make dough, but you're not sure how the pieces fit together.
I call these the 3 pillars of Podcasting.
In the next few days I'm going to share some insights on each one of these pillars.
Let's jump in an talk a about Pillar 1: Tech.
Do some research online about starting your podcast show and you'll quickly see people talking about mics, mixers, filters, sound proofing, software, mixing, normalizing, and on and on.
If you allow yourself to go down this rabbit hole you'll spend hundreds of hours learning sound engineering and thousands of dollars on equipment you don't need.
This is why I encourage you to have minimal equipment when you're first getting started.
All you need is a USB mic, and some free recording software.
Inside module #1 of my Podcasting 101 training I give you the exact equipment I use that cost less than two hundred bucks and makes you sound great.
I've been using this same setup for years and people swear I'm recording in a studio. In fact, my buddies Ben Settle and Doberman Dan use this setup too. Have a listen to their shows and you'll get an idea of the quality.

I'll be back tomorrow to talk about Pillar #2: Topics.
See you then,
