School of Podcasting - Plan, Launch, Grow and Monetize Your Podcast

Sep 21, 2020

Elizabeth Benton is known as a health and nutrition guru, but to me, she is more of a "mindset guru." She is someone who has dug herself out of being $130,000 in debt, and has lost (and kept off )150 lbs. My audience from the Logical Weight Loss podcast told me I HAD to read her book, Chasing Cupcakes (get it for free on Audible), and once I finished her book, I checked out her Primal Potential podcast and downloaded all of her episodes. I was thrilled when she agreed to come on the show and explain how podcasting has boosted her business.

My Favorite Takeaways

  • I want to be challenged because in that I learn.
  • If you don't want to roll an ankle don't play basketball if you don't want people to disagree with you Don't ever say anything out in public.
  • The advantage over email is people can listen to episode four. They can't read your fourth email. 
  • If you're having fun, stay in the game. Stay consistent.
  • Don't just do podcasting because podcasting is hot. It's only hot if you're really good at it.

Podcast Rewind

I appeared on The Brave Files  podcast with Heather Vickery talking about some of my biggest fears and how I overcome them. The show features people living courageously.

I also appeared on the Business of Podcasting show with Charley Valher. We talked about taking steps to make sure your podcast connects with your audience. Without a connection, you won't be able to monetize your show.

Feel free to “riff” on your thoughts of interesting, and explain any examples of content you feel is interesting. I need your answer by September 25th, 2020. Go to
