Tap In! It's International Podcast Day!
I was super excited to learn that today September 30th is International Podcast Day. How cool is that?! It seems like there is always something to celebrate these days. From National Hot Dog Day to National Daughter and Son Day, it's always a party!
The thought that someone had an idea, then spent the time to create it and probably never imagined the impact it would have on the world. For example, I just checked and today is also, National Chewing Gum day, Hot Mulled Cider Day, National Mud Pack Day and let's not forget to mention that today September 30th is also Orange Tshirt Day.
With all that being said, I want to focus on the fact that I have a podcast that has been completely neglected for several weeks. Listen, life has been happening and I've been busy mentally preparing for turning 50 this November and reorganizing my digital design agency. The fact that today podcasters are being celebrated, I was reminded of how much I enjoy using my voice. So guess what? I'm back and recommitted to my podcast. For the 5 listeners. lol, Thank you!
Here's a quick summary that I've prepared in honor of International Podcast Day,
What is a Podcast?
A podcast is an episodic series of spoken-word digital audio files that a user can download to a personal device for easy listening. Streaming applications and podcasting services provide a convenient and integrated way to manage a personal consumption queue across many podcast sources and playback devices. Wikipedia
What I started My Podcast…
I started the EPLS the Entrepreneur Lifestyle Podcast as a way to share my journey, what I’ve learned as a small business owner. Most of all I wanted to remind aspiring entrepreneurs of the importance of believing in their dreams. How this decision to start a business or sell and promote your own products is a life-changing experience.
What to expect on my podcast…
Over the past few years, my purpose has been to share my mistakes provide my listeners. If only someone would have told me to look out or be prepared for this… I may have made better decisions while building and branding my business. So my goal is to do just that. Share the things I’ve learned along the way. With Brand development and Mindset hacks as the focus. Understanding that your mindset is the only way you’ll ever be successful is where I like to focus most of my topics.
Why is it important to you to use your voice?
I’ve always been that person who sees life and thinks about life differently. Either in a corporate world or relaxed around family and friends. Having a different mindset and perspective on life has often caused me to feel misunderstood. But over the past few years, I’ve realized that that being able to see and think differently is my gift. We all have different talents and expertise that can help other people. This is why I feel that we need to practice listening to each other more. Podcasting helps to do just that. Listeners can tune in and take away what matters most to them and apply it to their life as needed. The best part is that they can always save and revisit any episode whenever they need to.
Why is International Podcast Day special?
I don’t have many subscribers to my channel, but I’ve tried to be consistent and dedicated to using my voice through this medium. International Podcast Day gives me a great sense of connection to so many different people who are also brave enough to use their voices, share their stories and live life intentionally.
This is why my motto is…
You Were Born to Be and Do Great Things. So wake up every day and GO BE GREAT!
