After doing things for a few years, I’ve noticed “patterns” of those who make it and those who, well frankly don’t and have a hard time enjoying podcasting.

After all, it is supposed to be a little fun..right? At least?

I know this, winning = fun not winning = no fun :(

So following that logic, this episode should be called, "How to NOT Lose at Podcasting." (Avoid these handfuls of mistakes)


Now that we have a good title, enjoy this episode, avoid these mistakes and email me at if you need help growing or launching your show.

Do not launch a show with no specific benefit to the listener.
