So let's talkabout finding your voice. I share a lot of information about finding your truevoice. I can tell you right now...

...that I've started things around podcasting before, but was never my true, authentic self. I'm kind of a WackyGuy, I'm fun I'm out there and I used to put on a nicelight blue dress shirt and pretend to be this sort of polished corporate person andit never worked. It never felt true to myself. And here I amtoday wearing a hat and a tshirt and having the time of my life justbeing me. So if you're out there wondering, Hey, will people thinkmy voice is weird or they don't like the way I dress? Don't worryabout that stuff. Just be your authentic self. So pod dex is anamazing company that I've been a part of and it's brought me to a lotof new podcasters.

Sothis has brought me to creating this podcast,...

...podcast therapy, to share all thethings that I'm learning. I'm constantly studying the industry. I'm constantly lookingat what's working, what new tools are out there for you to use.Again, I want to help you grow your audience. There's nothing that makesme happier than sharing something with you that can help you change your show,grow your show, optimize your show, and that's exactly why I do thisnow. In addition to that, I'm a dad. I have two beautifulchildren, a son and a daughter, who keep me super busy and inspired. I just love how kids have no filter. I think kids should havea podcast at some point, because they don't care. They just tell youhow they feel, they tell you the truth and I just think it's beautiful. So that's another thing that I want to share with you, is I'malways here to tell you the truth and be transparent. I actually posted thatI 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 going to share withyou the latest and greatest things that...

I'm using in podcasting or tools thatI've found that can enhance your life. And as far as growing your audience, I think that there's lots of different ways to do that. Of courseI'm sharing that through courses, I'm sharing that through my youtube channel and videosand podcasting. So I hope that it can help you somewhere down the road. Now I had a podcaster asked me why should I listen to you asopposed to someone else, and I want to do address that. I dothink that you need to find somebody that energizes you, that motivates you,that resonates with you, and that's the best way to consume information. Buteverything I'm sharing with you is only from personal experience. It's only things thatI think are working. So if I ever give you advice that is counterintuitiveto what someone else is saying, that's okay because I'm just sharing what wasworking for me or my clients. Now I've launched over a hundred podcast andhave over two million downloads and I'm of course, sharing the information that we'veused to get to those places, but...

...what I'm telling you isn't always thebe all end. I'll answer to the question. There's lots of amazing peopleout there sharing information. So just find people that, like I said,get you jazzed up, get you excited to podcast and take the information thatthey'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 thinkthings sound different. We all think different things sound good. Formats are different. I made present a format to you, but you think that the format you'reusing is working, then keep using your format. All I'm doing hereis sharing what I see working and that's all I'll ever do. Complete transparency. If something's working, I'll let you know. If something isn't working,I will also let you know. So that's a little bit about me.I'm also a musician and an artist. I love making art. I doscreen printing and I record songs and that's...
