Permission To Relaunch Your Podcast
During my current session of Podcasting A to Z, I had shared the story how I once did a complete relaunch of my Help I Got A Mac podcast by deleting the first ten episodes that I had published and restarting the show with a brand new first episode.
One student said that, by my sharing this story, I had eliminated all the anxiety related to producing the first few episodes of his podcast and that it took away all the excuses from him launching his podcast right away. Several other students, who were following our discussion, had reported that they were also encouraged by the “permission to relaunch” their podcast. It was immediately obvious to me that this would be a great topic for Podcast Answer Man. (00:31:45)
Taking Health & Fitness To The Next Level
In this episode, I took about fifteen minutes to share a topic that has been pretty heavy on my mind over the past several years. The topic is health and fitness. More importantly, I have a desire to focus on eating healthy and having regular intentional physical activity as a part of my everyday life.
Those who have known me since I first launched my business, know that I have been recording my progress in pursuing a balanced and healthy lifestyle for many years in my Pursuing A Balanced Life podcast. I know that there are a large number of self-employed folks who listen to my show that sit in front of their computers a majority of the day and who also deal with a lack of physical activity and who also deal with a high level of stress on an occasional basis. For this reason, I decided to share what I've been doing for the past three and a half weeks and who I hope to get back to a lifestyle that I once had back in 2009 through 2010. (00:03:08)
