Hi Teammates!

Recently I have been featured on a few podcasts that were actually recorded weeks or in some cases, months ago. Doing podcasts is something that I never actually gave thought to when I first started re-writing my book. I have thoroughly enjoyed each one that was fortunate to be on. It just so happens that they are being rolled out around the same time. Because of that, I have been doing two things when I listen to or watch each podcast. First, I analyze each one to figure out what I can do better. Second, I evaluate whether the message I am trying to get across is being projected.

While I am pretty sure every person on earth hates to hear their voice on recordings, I have come to accept the fact that my voice sucks haha. I listen to small details of each podcast. For example, in one or two podcasts, there seems to be some kind of clicking noise when I talk. I have not figured out what it is. At first, I thought it was my watch because sometimes I talk with my hands, but I noticed it happens even when my hands are still. It drives me crazy although I am probably the only person that notices it. Because of that, I have decided that I need to invest in a microphone. I would like the listeners to enjoy the experience of listening to what I have to say, but if there are noises that disturb that, they may tune out.

Evaluating my message is very important because I am not doing podcasts or any other interview as PR for myself. The content and information that I have to offer should be in the focus. Because most of the podcasts I have done are coming out at the same time, I have often questioned if I am telling the same stories and if it could get boring for the listener. I have concluded that each podcast and its host has a different audience. No one (except for me) is listening to each interview. There is a new audience for each podcast that might reach someone in need of the information I have to offer. Although the stories are not new to me, they will be new to most other people. Of course, the questions will be different since each podcast has its focal points as well. Hopefully, I will have the opportunity to be a guest on more podcasts and get my message out. I will be watching each episode afterward and critiquing my performance while cringing when I hear my voice 😉

Thank you for taking the time to read my words!
