227: How Do You Start a Podcast?


If you’ve ever considered starting a podcast, this episode is for you! I often get asked exactly what it takes to start a podcast, and in this week’s episode, I’m sharing my best tips and advice.


We’ll cover:

  • How to know if starting a podcast is the right next step for you
  • Why being a guest on other podcasts is the perfect place to start
  • Exactly why podcasts fail (and the simple way to avoid this!)
  • How to begin on a lower budget and what you actually need to get started


I’ll also share how to set up good systems, rhythms, and structures to make sure you stay consistent with your content. I have been podcasting since 2019, and I believe now more than ever that it’s a great way to share your message and connect with your ideal audience. If podcasting might be for you, this episode will help you know exactly where to start!
