Episode 81: How to Stay Focused On Podcast Preparation
Time management is one of the most important elements in your life and, if you’re like most people, you have a hard time maximizing the minutes in your day. It’s understandable. We live in a world filled with distractions and interruptions, all pulling us in different directions and taking our attention from our most important work.
In order to truly master time, you must develop the discipline to block out distractions, nip interruptions in the bud, and make certain points of your day unbreakable appointments with yourself. This will ensure 100% of your focus stays where it needs to be and, ultimately, helps you achieve the best results.
This is very important in podcasting. You must spend a certain amount of time on your show to ensure all your productions succeed. And in Episode 81 of Pod Theory, I’m going to share some tips and strategies to help you stay focused on preparation, production, and more. I’ll also give you my candid thoughts on multi-tasking…..
Episode 82: How to Interview a Celebrity or VIP
Landing a VIP, celebrity, musician, athlete, or any person who is considered a big deal in your niche is a pretty big accomplishment. Clearly, this person saw some value in what you’re doing and is willing to spend time with you on your show. Congratulate yourself, that’s good stuff!
Now…stop worrying about f*cking up the interview! I’ve seen this brought up in various podcast groups that I’m in. People don’t want to screw things up with their big time guest, so they get nervous and begin to overly worry about it…not even realizing the hardest part (getting this person on the show in the first place) has already been handled!
On Episode 82 of Pod Theory, I’m going to share some insight on how to handle interviewing a VIP on your podcast. People, no matter their station in life, want to be treated with respect…and like a normal person. In this episode, you’ll learn some easy-to-implement strategies to help you make your VIP interview one for the ages.
Episode 83: The Best Podcasters Are…
The best podcasters in the game possess certain qualities that help them continue to master their craft and up their podcasting game. And if you want your show and your brand to be seen in a similar light, it’s important you harness the power of these qualities as effectively as you can.
In Episode 83 of Pod Theory, I’m going to share some of the characteristics the best podcasters leverage with all of their productions. Focusing on building upon these qualities will level up your podcasting skill set and help take your show to new heights.
Episode 84: 3 Ways to Get Noticed As a Podcaster
Becoming a great podcaster doesn’t happen overnight. You have to commit, you have to work hard, and you have to realize what you’re working towards. If you are looking to stand out and get noticed, it won’t happen without a dedicated effort to honing your skill set and without going beyond the work done on your podcast.
On Episode 84 of Pod Theory, I’m going to share three ways you can get noticed as a podcaster. These initiatives will take time, patience, and effort to come together. But consistently putting them into practice will get you noticed and help take your podcast to new levels of growth and success over time.
Episode 85: Don’t Expect Results Without Putting In the Work
The Internet has a funny way of making us believe that goals can be reached without putting in the hard work it takes to accomplish them. Well…maybe you need to hear this and maybe you don’t, but I’m using this platform to say…that’s complete bullsh*t!
There is no better feeling of accomplishment than achieving a goal you know you had to work like hell to conquer. Just having it handed to you will not help you grow, will not help you learn, and will not help you get better. This applies to podcasting as much as it does life as a whole. In order to get the best results, you have to be willing to put in the work required of you AND take the lumps that may occur along the way.
On Episode 85 of Pod Theory, I go on a bit of a rant about expecting results without the work. About showing up for the whole game instead of just the highlights. About being patient in your quest to build a great podcast and not expecting results to be handed to you without effort. It may just be the message you need to hear today.
