We are doing something a little
bit different today. I recently hit a podcasting
milestone, so I decided to
celebrate by sharing what I've learned reaching 100+ episodes.
Phew! I can't believe I did it!
My friend and MiloTree community
manager, Paula Rollo, is back to help me share with you all some
behind the scenes from the podcast.
Before we jump into the
content though, I want to speak directly to those people who have
been listening to this podcast for a long time because they’re
interested in starting their own blog but they haven’t made the
leap yet, for whatever reason.
Blogging is a great way to
set up your online business, but the technology holds so many
Well now, you don’t have to

Why I Started This Podcast
I have always listened to and
enjoyed podcasts. It’s one of my favorite things to do. I even look
for excuses in my life to listen to my podcasts.
When I started this podcast, it
was because I went to Podcast Movement and took a course on how to start a
I came home and told my daughter
I was going to start a podcast and she said, “No you’re
I had learned that if you can
make it to your eighth episode, you are more likely to continue
creating content for your podcast.
I told my daughter I would make
it to episode 8, and I did it to prove to her that I could! I
wanted her to see how if you put your mind to it, and do the work,
things will happen.
My Favorite Part of Having A
My favorite part is that I am
having an intimate, one-on-one conversation with someone that the
world gets to listen in on.
I am not on a stage with a crowd
of people watching me; I get to feel comfortable talking to someone
as my natural self.
I can be my authentic self
because I am focused on listening to the person I’m interviewing
and responding to them.
I feel super honored to be let
into people’s ears and I love meeting my
The Space This Podcast Fills
I try to get guests who are
going to have different perspectives on building online
I want to be really curious and
ask questions about what people want to know.
My audience is very
sophisticated and they want to know the inner workings and tactics
on how to build a business.
I want my guests to share their
failures so that my audience knows what not to do, as well as what
No one on my show is an
We share our struggles, the
years of hard work it took, and the sacrifices we had to make in
order to get where we are now. I am all about debunking the myth of
the overnight success.
How I Plan Future Episodes
I usually fly by the seat of my
pants episode by episode. However, I’m always looking for
interesting people to interview.
One thing I like is people who
build their businesses in unique ways. We all know that there are
certain things you can do to build an online business, but I want
to talk to those people who try new things and who discover new
ways to find success.
My audience is very
I want to introduce new ideas
about money, social media, etc., to my more experienced audience
who need to be taking those next steps.
Helping New Bloggers
I also have an audience of
people who are just getting started in this sphere. For that
audience, I want to help them get off the ground.
There is so much to learn about
blogging and building an online business and it can be
That’s why my husband, David,
and I started the BlogStart Service at MiloTree. We get it. We know how hard it can
be if you don’t have experience in online business. Just getting a
blog set up is a huge hurdle for most people.
We wanted to help people
overcome that hurdle, so we now have a service that will get a blog
up and running in a very short time for someone who wants to get
started but is held back by the technology
I want to build a path for the
people who want to start their businesses but don’t know the in’s

What I Want Listeners To Learn

the platform to ask all the questions I am wondering

It is a dance. There are days
where you kick butt. And there will be days when you feel too low
to continue. You will question why you are even trying to
accomplish this online business thing.
It is never as bad as you think,
and it is probably not as great as you think.
You have to work through your
emotions and know that you can still make a difference and grow.
Tomorrow is another day.
Always know that you are making
a difference in someone’s life. Whether that’s a reader, a family
member, or someone you’ve never met.
