I started my first podcast, 'What You Will Learn', with my good friend. We've just hit our 1-year anniversary. We read a book each week, then share the biggest lessons with our audience in areas such as business, finance, spirituality and health.
More recently, I've added a new show called 'The Podcast About Podcasts'. Here is where I interview great podcast hosts to learn their secrets and get their advice for anyone looking to start or grow their own show.

Super-quick summary of the main steps
My mission in life is to help people do work that matters and do work they love. I'm on a journey to help people avoid the traps of modern society and instead do things that they truly want to, not what they think they 'have' to. The first step on this journey is to find your voice and get some credibility, so I want to help you build authority and spread content. That's why I'm creating courses on podcasting and publishing a book.
