I am thrilled that we’ve made it to episode 200 of Six Figure Freelancer and I’m glad that I get to celebrate it with all of you.
In 2018, when I first wanted to start the podcast, I thought of putting it off for a more convenient time, but I’m happy that I was convinced to start when I had the thought. And here we are 200 episodes later. In this episode, I want to talk about 10 things that I’ve learned throughout these two years and 200 episodes of podcasting.
Whether this gives you the nudge you need to start your own, or is just a fun way to recap everything you’ve heard over the last 200 episodes, I’m glad you’re here.
"If you have this nudge, this inkling to do something like this (or anything, for that matter), it’s there for a reason. Don’t be afraid to take action. "
In this episode we talk about:
Making mistakes is human and there’s no need to get hung up on them. What’s important is that the information is valuable and pertinent.
After practicing on the podcast, it has become easier to communicate and to articulate thoughts. And the episodes continue to improve because of it.
Taking breaks to help recharge is helpful for generating new ideas and fresh content. It’s also great to know that you, the listeners, are understanding of this aspect of the podcast.
Content doesn’t have to be hard to come up with. In fact, it can be built on passing thoughts that you have during day-to-day life.
We all know how important consistency is, but it’s worth repeating. The consistent growth of the podcast is related to the consistent output of the podcast.
Take advantage of the various systems you can use to make podcasting easier on yourself. You don’t need to know how to do everything, just who to go to.
Podcasting is a great format for sharing ideas, but it’s also great for testing different ideas that you’d like to share and talk about.
People will use your podcast to learn and you can’t learn unless you know the source is trustworthy. Being a trustworthy source and helping people to grow can have an amazing ripple effect.
It’s easy to lose sight of why you want to podcast, which can make you feel unmotivated. In those instances, dig deeper and recognize that you could be changing lives through the things you say.
Interacting with the gratitude you, as listeners, give is encouraging and helps influence the podcast to be the best that it possibly can be.
