Out and About: Control the Risk of Failure with Joshua Sheats - Youversation Episode 035

(RPF is on Spring Break this week, so I'm sharing some interviews with you where I've been featured on other shows. Enjoy! -Joshua)

“I don’t think failure is a mark of shame. Failure and mistakes are inevitable.”

Things Joshua talks about in this episode:

  • Why a “hunch” helped him move into his podcast career
  • Why he had to ignore the advice of people around him to start the podcast
  • Why he had to quit his job to start his podcast
  • How he “mitigated” the details of failure
  • When we do fail, let’s fail in small, manageable ways and make sure we have backup plans
  • Why his podcast fills a gap he could not find anyone else filling
  • Why he started his business with a podcast
  • What social media platforms he uses to engage his audience and market the podcast
  • His advice for people who want to start their business on digital platforms
  • Why he thinks people confuse a platform and a tool with content and a strategy
  • The podcast is not the benefit, it’s simply the tool that we use to deliver the content
  • Why he follows NO ONE on social media
  • Why he schedules free time and focus days
