I’m very excited to announce that The Conquer Your Kryptonite Show has moved from dream to plan to execution!
Having a podcast has been on my radar for several years, but I finally let it become a specific project in my overall strategic plan. This is no accidental show…it’s taken a lot of planning and effort to make it happen.
Behind the Scenes
Starting a podcast was a part of my 40 Before 40 list in 2013. But I didn’t get serious about it until late in the year. My friend Bret Farmer (owner of Podcast Conduit) offered to produce the show, and we even recorded a test episode in December 2013. The timing just wasn’t right though, so I intentionally put the project on the back burner for a while.
A few weeks turned into a few months. Plenty of real-world, family and life stuff transpired. Still, it was there just waiting to be picked up and executed.
I was having fun doing interviews on other people’s podcasts, including Entrepreneur on Fire with John Lee Dumas, The Ethical Entrepreneur with Clayton Morris, and Starve the Doubts with Jared Easley. Jared encouraged me to support and attend the first Podcast Movement conference in Dallas in August, and that relit the fire!
Being at a conference with so many other entrepreneurs who had active shows made me feel left out. More importantly I saw the power of podcasting for my business. So I got serious, started working and now the show is live.
I approached my friend and long-time accountability partner Megan Burns about co-hosting the show with me. We developed a show structure, mapped out a few episodes, and started recording. Bret Farmer agreed to produce the show for us and help get it out there. Having a team of people working together is so much more powerful than doing it all alone.
Now Megan and I plan out our episodes and record a few shows at a time. Bret set up the digital infrastructure and cleans our “ums” and “ahs” as best he can. The ball is rolling and we’re getting better at it as we go. And we’re having fun as well.
Expenses are minimal as we use the equipment we have and upgrade a little at a time. It’s an experiment and I believe it’s a good one.
And I still hope our first show is our worst show, and our latest show is always our best show.
I hope you listen and enjoy it.
