In this episode, you will learn how podcasting is very similar to the other mediums. I will share the best tips and tricks for starting off with editing and publishing your own podcast even ith a co-host before outsourcing so you become familiar with your own podcast's brand. I will also share how to go from writing to speaking as a podcaster. I will also share the importance of sharing your story on your podcast because your story needs to be heard. 

How Podcasting Was My Therapy

How I went from Blogging to Youtubing, to Podcasting

  • My popular blog post became the first podcast episode - sharing my story as a cancer survivor
  • Read Your Own Blog Posts in a Casual Voice
  • How to Repurpose Your Content 
  • How to Confidently Share Your Story (Toot Your Own Horn) 
  • Most people do not care about your voice the way you do
  • How to use the skills that you already have to make high-quality audio content - Foamboard, Blanket, Tent, Partition
  • Continue to Use Youtube 
  • Become familiar with your own brand before outsourcing or co-hosting


  • Just Do It
  • Export Audio from your already Uploaded Videos
  • Record and Edit 
  • But Don’t be afraid to share your story - it needs to be heard
  • Use the Microphone from your phone and the voice recorder apps on your phone
  • Record and edit three episodes of your own before outsourcing



“Even though there are a million podcasts out there Your voice, knowledge, and story are unique.”
