They Said, "Why Not" Now Look at Them!

As a podcast consultant and coach, my biggest struggle is not getting people to pick a name, or artwork, or finding the right gear. Those are all a walk in the park. My hardest part is getting people to start. First I need them to press record, and then I need them (after a few practice runs) to press publish.

Danny Elfman

Kevin Smith

Jeff Dunham
