  • Your podcast workflow with yourself OR with a co-host is a key to not podfading, in addition to making sure your are clear of what you can commit to.
  • What you expect as a payoff and what you get as a payoff might be different.
  • Downloads and PEOPLE are different. Just FYI.

  • When you first start it feels super awkard regardless of how many courses you take and how many tutorials you do!
  • OMG. A Jessica rant. Delicious. (listen at your own risk if you have stock questions for your podcast)

    This was such a great episode. I loved the passion and how much of this was just you two talking from the heart. I LOL when Jess said I’m a good writer, I’m a good uuuuuh talker cause…… that was awesome then she called herself on it. Happy Baby time. Keep up the great work, and great job thinking ahead to do these ahead.
