Are you ready to make your podcast work for you?
You know podcasting can be an important part of your business. For relationships, growth, and even income. But so far, it’s been way too much work for very few benefits…and even fewer downloads.
It doesn’t have to be like this. You can have a successful show without the added stress and overwhelm.
How Do You Run 3 Podcasts with 3 Small Kids!?
This was an actual question someone asked me while I was doing a webinar.
I totally understand why. Running one podcast is a lot of work. Having one kid is a lot of work. Tripling both does more than triple the work. So how do I do it (And how can YOU find time to run your podcast within your busy schedule)?
After my first daughter was born in 2017, I noticed a monumental shift in my time. I used to run a side hustle nearly full time, while also maintaining a full time job at a demanding agency.
But, as they say, kids change everything. Even after my wife went back to work, I didn’t seem to have enough time in the day to run my own business, while also making time for my family.
I’d have to choose between taking on a new client (which I needed), and spending time with my wife and daughter. That killed me. The whole reason I left my agency job was to avoid that choice.
So I started to automate some of my processes around 2018-2019. It was hard at first because, as a solopreneur, I wanted to do everything myself.
Then the pandemic hit. It felt like someone poured a mountain of salt on a wound that was our lives as busy parents trying our best to scrape by.
Because my wife was a nurse, she was working more than ever. That left me with even MORE parenting demands on my plate, and an increasing amount of work – but with the same 24 hours in a day.
In July 2020 we welcomed our son. I knew if
my podcast my business I was going to survive, I’d need to do less.
That’s when I really started improving my podcast processes.
I was automating and delegating everything I possibly could, including podcast guest onboarding, team communications, and actually publishing the episodes.
It was life-changing.
- More time for my business and my family.
- Nothing falling through the cracks.
- No staying up late to publish the next episode.
- A steady stream of sponsors.
- A new membership program.
We welcomed our 3rd child in December 2021, and something was different this time…
Instead of my baby pulling me away from my desk, and my stress levels rising…my business continued running smoothly despite my absence.
I vowed then to help as many podcasters and busy solopreneurs as possible avoid what I went through.
That’s why I started the Foundry.
