Thank You

This show is for those of you who tune in BTW Podcast on a regular basis,  I appreciate you.  As a token of my appreciation we've got a gift for you email us: behindthewheelmorningshow@ gmail.com We've created some swag let us know what you'd like see.  I started BTW Podcast to highlight the accomplishments of ordinary people who were doing EXTRAordinary things within their communities.  I didn't start BTW Podcast to make money selling Advertising segments, merchandise or sponsorships. 

I don’t spend time looking at analytics, because I didn’t get into podcasting to make money, I got stated because I love talking to people and sharing their stories, that’s my way of making a difference in the world.  I don't take The "Rununation Family"  for granted 

We created a coaster on it are  just a few of the ordinary people who’ve been on BTW Podcast.  It represents 5yrs of hard work, commitment and dedication to the running and endurance communities and beyond.  This isn’t some podcasting land grab or passing fad, this is me committed to honing my craft and providing people with a platform to share their stories.

I want to be the best at what I do! But, that doesn’t mean I can’t or won’t celebrate your success, hell I’ll even offer assistance, because I’m secure in who I am.  We’re quick to criticize Runner’s World for their lack representation but then don’t support our own, why is that? Does it just sound good to complain several people will be launching magazines and starting different ventures and I salute you.

I don’t spend time looking at analytics, because I didn’t get into podcasting to make money, I got stated because I love talking to people and sharing their stories, that’s my way of making a difference in the world.

When I looked at the analytics last night and I noticed I have more people tuning in on the West Coast than I do on the East Coast and more people tuning in from France than I do from New York.  Now I know from my retail mgt days what gets measured gets moved.

I say all that to say stay the course, a prophet is without honor in his own land. You’ll find that those who you think will support won’t, and those who you thought had your back are the very ones talking behind your back.  But, you got this!!!  

Oh yeah I haven't mentioned my Ko-fi page.  The launching of my Ko-fi page is me embracing my talents, this is me walking in my purpose, this is me taking the leap, acknowledging that what I'm doing is providing a valuable service for the audience, the guest and the sponsors.  BTW Podcast is a business.

I took the leap 4years ago to drive for Uber/Lyft Full-time, so I could have the flexibility to devote to building BTW Podcast.  Ko-fi is platform that will allow entrepreneurs/business owners to sponsor an episode PRE, MID or POST roll, it also allows you to buy me a cup of coffee.

Thanks for accompanying my on this ride.  Leave a voicemail to let us know how were doing and receive a shout out in a future episode.
