Is it just me, or have you also noticed an increase in the number of sponsored podcast ads your feed? It seems as though every time I open Facebook or IG, the first thing I see the Washington Post, then a couple of swipes up I hit a podcasting ad. Lately several people have reached out to me for assistance with starting a podcast, during the 5yrs of hosting BTW, I have influenced a several people to launch their own Podcast, vlog or blog.
In a previous life I served as a corporate trainer for Kinko's before transitioning to a management role. Prior to Kinko's I ran a drop out prevention program within the NYC Public School System. I felt most alive during that time period in my life, which is probably why, I don't mind sharing what I've learned with others-it gives me an opportunity to use my gift with the world.
This episode was birthed out several conversations with my sister over the years, where I'd constantly encourage her to create soap making tutorials-because I recognize she has tremendous value to offer to the world. What prompted me to press record was a phone call I received from Brenda, a fellow runner on a Saturday afternoon in June. I realized the value of the work I've been doing over the years and the relationships that have been created, it is through those relationship I was able to be of service. On the same day a fellow running shoe geek wanted to know if I'd speak to his friend Darrel, he was interested in starting a podcast. Sure, why not? I like talking about Podcasting.
While cleaning out my inbox I ran across a message from Queenie Love, in 2019 she wanted to start a Podcast, I followed up with her to see where she was in the process. This is a non scripted, impromptu conversation with Darrell and Queenie. Enjoy, the insights from this call be in a blog on my Ko-fi page.
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.
