460 – That Time I Felt Like A Complete Fraud

by Cliff Ravenscraft on July 29, 2016

sn460

I was recently invited to be a guest on Tammy Helfrich’s Right Where You Are podcast. Over the years, I’ve been a guest on hundreds of podcasts. This interview was, by far, one of the greatest times that I’ve spent as a guest on someone else’s show.

For those who are not familiar with how I got my start in the podcasting world, how I turned my love for podcasting into a full-time career and what has transpired since, this interview is a great overview of what has transpired over the past 11 years. After we were finished recording, I knew that I wanted to share the recording here in my own podcast and Tammy was gracious enough to agree to having me share it with you here.

An Interview With Shane Whaley of Juicing Radio – 00:07:46
In this week’s episode, I am honored to feature a conversation that I had with my friend, Shane Whaley, from JuicingRadio.com. Shane is an alumni of my Podcasting A to Z Coaching Program and launched his podcast, Juicing Radio, on October 30th, 2014. Since the launch of the podcast he’s published a total of 156 episodes and has had some amazing experiences as the result of his podcasting journey.

One Year Update On Taking My Health To The Next Level – 00:00:58
I spent two minutes, at the open of this episode, to share an update on my focus to take my health and physical fitness to the next level. On November 14th, I celebrated the one year anniversary of my decision to drastically change my lifestyle. I’m going to keep my coverage of this topic, here in the show notes, brief as well. I’ll simply post the before and after photo below that shows how much progress I’ve made after my first full year into this journey. If you want to learn about what I’ve done and how I’ve achieved this, check out my blog post at PodcastAnswerMan.com/sixmonths.

Consistent Weekly Episodes of Podcast Answer Man Moving Forward – 00:03:03
I’ve given a great deal of thought about the consistency of this podcast lately. We’re currently in our 48th week of 2015 and this episode is the 40th episode that I’ve produced so far this year. That means that there have been a total of eight weeks where I did not publish an episode of Podcast Answer Man. Yes, I do have my reasons and excuses for this. However, I know, first hand, just how important consistency is to maintain a loyal community of folks who will make you a part of their weekly listening routines. From this point forward, I will release an episode every week, publishing the episode to the feed on Friday mornings at 5am Eastern Time.

Are you ready to change the world?
In this episode, I talk about what has always been the most appealing aspect of podcasting, the ability to have a powerful, positive, impact on the lives of those who consume your content.

I truly believe that you can change the world, one person a time, with your podcast if you have a clear message that people can identify with, if you are willing to just be yourself, if you genuinely care about people and if you build environments of community for folks to connect with you and each other.

Are you ready to #TrainWithCliff?
Also in this episode, I talk about my new #TrainWithCliff campaign. I want to encourage those who spend most of their days tethered to their computers to get off the fence and take their own health and fitness journey to the next level.
