I remember 2016 I started with a $12 course on Udemy and taught myself from there. I remember feeling overwhelmed, and frustrated that there really wasn’t much on growing a podcast out there when I started. My first try at podcasting FAILED after 14 episodes… I took 2 months off to study what the best in the game were doing. Spent another month just planning my new approach then finally I relaunched my show and grew it from 0 to 19k downloads a month. From there I sold one on one coaching programs, info products, and physical products to my podcast audience.💰After that I worked for 10 months for FREE for an influencer who had given up on his podcast. I took that show from 20k downloads a month to 110k PER MONTH in 10 months. From there I started helping other creators launch and grow their own shows…Since then my team and I have helped over thousands of podcasters, and launched over 170 podcasts for clients through our agency and consulting programs. I want to help YOU, whoever you are out there reading this, make money with your podcast and hopefully change your life and business for the better. 🚀▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬📱 CONNECT WITH ME 📱Instagram ►▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬🔔Subscribe! 🔔Subscribe ► ► Client Results ► information on this YouTube Channel and the resources available are for educational and informational purposes only.​▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬🔔My Podcast Equipment and Software I Use 🔔NOTE: The links below are affiliate links!
