Today is another big day.
I’m announcing the upcoming launch of my first podcast here. My aim (with your support) is to publish two podcasts per month on JonAlford.com and I’m working to feed the show out to iTunes.
(See cover art to the right)
Which topics will I/we cover? Smart online business strategy. Sounds vague, eh? It’s not. Smart strategy is a league apart from “the latest fad strategy” or trending tactic.
You’ll be hearing about the projects I have a hand in, things that are working for me, things that aren’t, and you’ll learn about my partner projects that are coming down the line (when it’s appropriate to disclose them).
It’s going to be a show covering business growth strategies, branding practices, and help for start-ups. You’ll help steer it from there
Another part of this I’m excited to share with you is the interviews I’ll be conducting. It isn’t only about trying to pull A-Listers on these interviews.
I want you.
We all want to hear how someone, just like us, is making things happen for their business online. Someone that is in the trenches or just breaking out.
We want to hear from people that just left their 9-5 job to pursue their online venture and people that are having success in their areas of the interwebs here or there.
Contact me here if you have a suggestion for whom I should approach for an interview (including you).
The first podcast came out a bit rough but I am committed to improving it over time. I like that it needs polish. It’s neat to think how in 6 months from now I’ll give it a listen, laugh (and cringe) realizing how much the podcast has evolved.
And trust me, the podcasts will offer you useful and actionable content.
I didn’t go too in-depth on the “history of me” in the first podcast slated to release next week. In fact, I cut myself short where I could have shined.
But it doesn’t matter, this week is about being profound not about being perfect.
We’ll develop together, share advice and take the show in the direction that benefits you the most. Let this be a testament to taking big steps, even if you’re scared, toward advancing your business and embracing new strategy and techniques.
Making moves like producing a podcast show just requires you to invest time learning how to implement and then time creating. It wasn’t as painful to bolt the parts together as I had imagined but there were definitely some parts I had no clue existed prior to starting.
Keep an eye out for my podcast release next week. Enough said. This is me taking my own advice by putting myself out there and being profound in my journey.
Please share your thoughts or ask questions in the comments. You’re also invited to share steps you took on your business journey this week, big or small, that warrant some recognition!
