Should You Start a Podcast or Not?

One of the questions I get from a lot of the people I coach is, “Should I start a podcast?” While the easy answer is “Yes, of course, you should. The world deserves your voice”… there’s more than that.

Every decision is different and there must be a purpose/reason WHY you would start a podcast. There are a lot of factors in why one would WANT to start a podcast or maybe not start a podcast.

In today’s episode, I’ll share: …

  • Why I started this podcast and why I love doing it.
  • 7 Reasons WHY to potentially start a podcast of your own.
  • 5 Reasons why you may NOT want to start a podcast.
  • 5 Excuses for not starting a podcast…and what to do about it.
  • And then some.

I hope today’s episode serves of great value to you. As you ascertain if podcasting is something you should do or not, my hope is that the experience I share on today’s show helps determine if podcasting is a great way for you to communicate with your tribe and inspire the world to greatness.

More on the episode

3:28 – Todd shares his top 7 reasons WHY he started the IMPACT SHOW and some reasons why you would consider starting a podcast:
Wanted to get the IMPACT message out to the world. Wanted to share some of the amazing people in my network with the world. Wanted to highlight some of the people I coach and mentor. Wanted to share some of the extraordinary stories by ordinary people in my network. Want to Coach You & Inspire you to be your BEST. Provide Knowledge. Inspiration. Motivation. Thought-provoking content that challenges you to be your best. Wanted to Mentor You. Legacy. If I die, my kids, my grandkids, will have 200+ episodes to listen to forever.

16:50 –  Here is why you may NOT want to start a podcast:
You want a quick fix. Time commitment. You’re not looking to scale your message. Your focus is on another platform. You don’t like to prepare. Budget. $3,000 – $5,000 to start. $500 – $5,000 per month to produce. Excuses…it’s too late to start a podcast… I don’t have time… I don’t have the money. You’re so good-looking that you should be on TV and not a podcast. 🙂

Please keep your questions coming so I can highlight you on the podcast!!
