In college, I was a theatre minor. In acting classes, they teach you that regardless what is going on in your real life, you simply must put it aside when you are on the stage. You are there to perform for the audience and you are expected to “play the character” that is prescribed for the production.
Every now and then, it’s easy for us, as podcasters, to feel like we need to “put on a performance” for our audience. I understand the need for someone, like myself, to build a professional reputation to represent my business well.

In this episode of Podcast Answer Man, I share one of the top five most difficult decisions that I’ve had to make in my business. February 2014 marks the second anniversary of The Podcast Mastermind. In spite of the fact that it was responsible for generating over $57,000 in profit for my business in 2013, alone, I made the decision to completely shut it down. The difficulty of this decision has nothing to do with the loss of the $57K and has everything to do with the amazing benefits that have come as a result of being a part of seeing massive life change in the lives of the members that it served.
This is now my favorite episode of Podcast Answer Man to date. In it, you will learn why I had to shut down The Podcast Mastermind. You’ll also get a valuable insight into the type of commitment that I have to my business and my desire to always under promise and over deliver on every commitment that I make to those I work with in any way.
