Today, let me tell you how I created a podcast in two weeks, Sacred Business Podcast. I share this while waiting to receive approval with iTunes so we aren’t fully in the clear yet but I am hopeful.
Tips to getting a project like this done!
Don’t overthink it. I whipped up the copy to my intro and outro in a couple of minutes after doing about an hour worth of research.
I then spent about 30 minutes choosing three song options.
Next, I opened up my GarageBand and read both my intro and outro in one read.
Playing your music options while playing your recorded intro helps you decide which song to go with.
Then I hired a recommended audio editor to clean it up and clip them into 2 audio files for me.
Lastly, I looked for the easiest platform that will allow me to record me podcast live so that I don’t need to edit. That meant I was going with Speaker!
I like to do things once and not harp over editing for I know if I add on another task, it won’t get done. So finding a platform where I am forced to go LIVE and know that even if I mess up or the dog barks, there is no going back, helps my psyche. There are still some tweaks that need to be made including a GOOD podcast photo but we’ll get there! (The photo there now is just a placeholder)
And so...without further ado, may I present you with Episode 1 of the Sacred Business Podcast.
Sometimes the podcast episodes will be short and other times they will be longer. Sometimes it will be just me and other times it will be with a guest.
May I invite you to head over to Speaker to listen but get ready - I’ll be asking you all to head over to iTunes very soon. This is just a taste - think of it as an appetizer before the main course. I hope you find it’s delicious!
Remember, you are worthy and when a project feels aligned, just go for it! It’s always a learning experience and I am sure my podcast abilities will get better as I grow. My commitment is to bring you inspiration and information weekly so get ready!
