Podcasting is now mainstream. And suddenly, everyone wants to start a podcast. But not everyone starts a podcast with realistic expectations.
Unless you’re already as popular as Gary Vaynerchuck, you’re likely not going to make it to the iTunes New and Noteworthy List overnight.
Hate to break it to you, but that’s really hard to do within a short period of time unless you have a large team helping you pump out multiple episodes a week. This week, I spoke to an expert on all things podcast related. The goal of our conversation? Addressing all the damaging myths and fears about starting a podcast.
If, after listening to this episode, you still want to start your own podcast, you’re likely not doing it for all the wrong reasons.
What this episode covers:
About Megan Dougherty:
Megan Dougherty is the co-founder and CEO of One Stone Creative, a multi-media content agency specializing in podcast production for businesses. She lives just outside of Ottawa, Canada with her partner, a lazy cat and hordes of belligerent houseplants. When she's not planning podcast strategies she likes to read, watch period dramas and painstakingly create from scratch items that are easily and inexpensively available in any store.
Where you can find Megan Online:
Megan also wanted me to mention a new service that she just started offering. You can learn about it via Podacsttobook.com.

What is People Behind The Business?
People Behind the Business is a "show for small businesses with small teams and huge ambitions". The point is to bring together small business owners worldwide to tell their stories about how/why they started their business, along with personal issues that impact how they do business. E.G: living with a mental or physical illness, hearing the word "no" a lot, and finding practical solutions to the challenges of establishing a loyal community of colleagues, customers + friends. My goal is to provide a forum where small business owners can learn from each other's mistakes & accomplishments.
