“Nothing’s overnight; everything is a grind. And that’s the first thing anyone should know before you get into creating content, this is a grind, and it can be very unrewarding. And often, you have to push yourself through it and get there.”
“Podcasting is very intimate. I take my podcasts with me to the grocery store, and I take them to the gym or in the shower. It’s a much different medium.”
“It’s easier for many folks to start with a partner, and we can bounce those ideas off and find a good group. I don’t know that I ever would have started making content online if I didn’t have a co-host.”
