How to quickly refocus when you've got a lot of balls in the air

There’s a lot going on at the moment for me, both personal and professionally, so I need a moment to regroup 😅

This time, I’m taking you through my process I do at the start of my work day to refocus.

I work about 24 hours a week on my business, so I pay attention to how I start and finish my day so I can get focused quickly.

If you have a lot of different things going on, taking a moment to refocus like this before you start your work can be very helpful. Watch this 10-minute episode to see how I do this.

What you'll learn in the next 10-minutes:

Overthinking and at the same time don’t know enough to get started?

Sidenote: Who has ever recorded something without hitting record? 😆

Sometimes, things don’t go exactly according to plan, like when I was recording this episode and forgot to press record… But you dust yourself off, have a good laugh at yourself, and just try again 😊

In this episode, I talk about those little disclaimers we sometimes make, like:

[I can tell you 1000s of details] *but I’m really not an expert*


*I don’t really know that much about it* [but here’s exactly how this process goes from A-Z]

The absolute minimal you need to get your podcast running

3 weeks left to go!

In this episode, I briefly explain how a podcast “hangs together” and the absolute minimal things you need to get it out there. If you’re thinking of starting your own podcast someday, then watch these 10 minutes.

First of all, thank you to everyone who sent me their comments! It was super helpful to point me in the right direction and I could take some fast steps thanks to your kind replies 🤗

When you know nothing about podcasting (yet)

Confession: I know nothing about podcasting...

Yes, I listen to audio. And I know you need decent quality audio for your podcast. But that's about it...

So, the next week will be all about figuring out what goes where in the podcasting world 😆 

I'm planning to publish the podcast on Spotify and.. uhm, the Apple place.. 😆 (obviously an Android user here, so Apple users, can you please help me out? Where do you listen to your podcasts, I have no idea! 😂)

Why you should (not) want a podcast

Starting a podcast probably isn't something you'd do on a whim. And it may not be the best thing for everyone. Aside from the practical things of actually making the podcast and wrapping your head around that, it's more important to take a hard look at WHY you'd want a podcast in the first place.

In this 10-minute episode, I share the reason why I'm starting my podcast and some of the things I explored along the way.

Where to start?

The official first episode is out! (Well, of the pre-podcast series, not the actual podcast yet, we'll cross that bridge in July😆) I'm sharing my process as I build my podcast in 6 weeks.

Today, we're talking about WHERE TO START when you're creating something like a podcast. 

So, I decided to build my podcast in 6 weeks...

And... we're off! 

The first episode of the pre-podcast series is on YouTube today. Over the next 6 weeks, I'll share my process as I build my podcast from scratch.

I'm a total newbie when it comes to podcasting. Yes, I've done some research (plenty of it but to my innie mind I'd still classify it as "some" 😆)
