We’ve all made mistakes in business (and…shoot…life!). The goal should be to do the thing, potentially fail at it, then learn from your mistakes and evolve into a better version of yourself. That’s certainly been my goal and I’ve definitely applied this process to my podcasting.
This week on the podcast, Dusty Weis of Podcamp Media is sharing some of the mistakes he’s made in his journey from corporate employee to podcast producer and how he’s used what he’s learned to support others on the same journey.
Everything in the podcasting world is NOT amazing and wonderful and it’s time we start talking about the challenges, misunderstandings, and mistakes. Because if we’re not learning, then turning around and supporting others, what’s even the point?
Dusty shares some of his biggest mistakes in podcasting and gives us a reality check on growing our own podcasts. Tune in now!
