Emily Costopoulos green lights her Why Not Now? idea of starting a podcast during this episode. We talk through each step and all of her questions. She’s an engineer by day and at night and on the weekends she explores her creative expression through her side hustles which include photography, typography and now podcasting. When I learned she was thinking about starting a podcast I asked her to come on the show and talk it through with me because I often get questions about podcasting. I hear from listeners who are considering starting their own podcast and they have many questions. From how to get started, to what’s involved in producing a podcast, what makes a good podcast, what’s needed from an equipment standpoint and everything in between. We talk through all of these questions.
And if podcasting isn’t something you’re specifically interested in, no worries – this episode is still valuable (in my humble opinion) because the steps we walk through in this episode can be applied to nearly anything you’ve been thinking about doing. Emily is someone who does love her day job but she’s also seeking more. She is sampling various side hustles and experimenting with other areas she’s interested in. She shares how she finds the time to do this, how she evaluates what she’s going to try as new side hustles and how she decides if she will continue it or not. Also I created a guide, a bit of a cheat sheet for how to start a podcast, what to think about and and what’s needed. You can download the guide at here.
