Hello everyone and thanks Tawnya for putting on an AMAZING summit this week #VAVS18. 

I am learning so much and my brain is on overload!

I have been a VA for 4+ years but only had 1 -2 clients doing data admin, email management and Web app/ mobile app testing. Now the main contract is ending and I am needing to sink or swim (and pay the rent next month)! My to-do list = 1) Create branding 2) Domain name 3) Website 4) Business Cards 5) Content creation 6) Email list creation/funnelling 7) Networking to find clients 😎

I learned how to produce podcasts back in 2016 and launched my own podcast in 2017. I produced over 60 episodes but ended up closing it down due to a number of reasons including the niche being a challenge - interviewing women who had difficult life stories and many had #MeToo stories as well.

I really miss podcasting and would love to earn a living creating podcasts for other people and selling courses to help teach others all the ins and outs of podcasting. Since I don't have any previous podcast episodes I can share on a portfolio page, I am going to either create a sample podcast with 1-2 episodes or start a new podcast which would be a blast! I could interview other VA's and get the word out about how awesome being a VA is. If any of you have experience with podcasting, I would love to chat. - Wendy

Wow - more than 60 episodes on such an emotionally difficult subject! That's quite an accomplishment! What got you interested in podcasting? How did you begin learning enough to start your own podcast? (General information is fine. Save the detailed guidance for your future courses - I might take one!)

Hi AJWoods, Thanks for your message. I became interested in podcasts back in 2008 and have learned so much over the years. I started learned just by finding different podcasts and watching YouTube videos and reading blogs and then was interviewed on a few podcasts myself but since I changed genres/niches, I am starting from scratch with a new podcast. At least I have the knowledge so it will go faster this time. Are you interested in learning about creating your own podcast or about offering some of the services to others who are podcasting?

At this point, I'm not interested in starting my own podcast. But I'm still curious about podcasting! (That's the way I am - intensely curious about many things, even some things I don't want to seriously pursue.) Also, I think some basic podcasting know-how might be helpful if I have future clients who want help with their own podcasts.
