But you might not know that I have an extensive audio background, soI wanted to let you know that I've been editing podcast for the last eightyears for coaches entrepreneurs, authors all kinds of differentpodcasters at podcast, buddy dot. So so what we do is we do the dirty work. Wetake your podcast, make it shine. You get to do the fun part which is haveyour interviewor. Have your show and we do the rest. So I've been producingpodcast for a long time and that's one place that I'm getting a lot of myinformation from I'm watching. What's working from clients, I am testingthings with them and I share these with you. So everything that I'm sharing onmy poddect channel comes from actual...

...personal experience or a client who hasused these strategies, and I just wanted to share with you how powerfulpodcasting can be my first ever podcast editing, client Tom Reber from thecontractor fight just got an hgtv show from a producer who listened to hispodcast, so he's been podcasting for a long time, consistently putting outepisodes and optimizing using our strategy calls- and here we are todaywith somebody who got a TV show from podcasting. So anything is possible, soaudios such a big part of my life. I was a musician. I tored the country, Ilearned audioproduction and recorded bands and my passion is to help peoplefind their voice, grow their audience and live the life of your dreams. Solet's talk about finding your voice. I share a lot of information aboutfinding your true voice. I can tell you...

...right now that I've started thingsaround podcasting before, but was never my true authentic self, I'm kind of aWacky Guy, I'm fun, I'm out there and I used to put on a nice light. Blue Dress, shirtand pretend to be this sort of polished corporate person and it never worked.It never felt true to myself- and here I am today wearing a hat and a tshirtand having the time of my life just being me. So if you're out therewondering hey, will people think my voice is weird or they don't like theway I dress. Don't worry about that stuff, just be your authentic self. Sopoddeck is an amazing company that I've been a part of, and it's brought me toa lot of new podcasters, just having a podcast editing agency. Didn't let mereach as many people as I wanted to, and I'm so grateful that poddext is atool that thousands of podcasters have adopted and use on their show. So thishas brought me to creating this podcast...

...podcast therapy to share all the thingsthat I'm learning I'm constantly studying the industry, I'm constantlylooking at. What's working, what new tools are out there for you to useagain, I want to help you grow your audience, there's nothing that makes mehappier then sharing something with you that can help you change your show grow.Your show optimize your show and that's exactly why I do this now. In additionto that, I'm a dad. I have two beautiful children, a son and adaughter who keep me super busy and inspired. I just love how kids have nofilter. I think kids should have a podcast at some point because theydon't care. They just tell you how they feel they tell you the truth, and Ijust think it's beautiful. So that's another thing that I want to share with.You is I'm always here to tell you the truth and be transparent. I actuallyposted that. I thought one podcast host was the best and I had to make a newvideo later on, because I found something better, so I'm always goingto share with you the latest and...

...greatest things that I'm using inpodcasting or tools that I've found that can enhance your life and as faras growing your audience, I think that there's lots of different ways to do that. Ofcourse, I'm sharing that through courses, I'm sharing that, through myyoutube channel and videos and podcasting, so I hope that it can helpyou somewhere down the road. Now I had a podcastor ask me: Why should I listento you as opposed to someone else, and I wanted to address that? I do thinkthat you need to find somebody that energizes, you that motivates you thatresonates with you and that's the best way to consume information, buteverything I'm sharing with you is only from personal experience. It's onlythings that I think are working. So if I ever give you advice that is counterintuitive to what someone else is saying: That's: Okay, because I'm justsharing was working for me or my clients. Now I've launched over ahundred podcast and have over two million downloads and I'm, of course,sharing the information that we've used...

...to get to those places. But what I'mtelling you isn't always the B all end e'll answer to the question: There'slots of amazing people out there sharing information so just find peoplethat, like I said, get you jazzed up, get you excited to podcast and take theinformation that they're sharing and if it applies to you then use it and if itdoesn't then don't use it audio is subjective. We all think things sounddifferent and we all think different things. Sound good formats are different. I may present aformat to you, but you think that the format you're using is working thenkeep using your format. All I'm doing here is sharing what I see working andthat's all I'll ever do complete transparency if something's workingI'll, let you know if something isn't working. I will also let you know sothat's a little bit about me. I'm also a musician and an artist. I love makingart. I do screen printing and I record songs and that's a big part of my life.Audio and creativity is a big part of...
