Word of the Week

Podcasting Word of the Week: Cleanse

Happy early Spring! This week, the Vernal Equinox is upon us in the Northern Hemisphere and what better way to celebrate than with a little spring cleaning!

That's why this week's Podcasting Word of the Week is CLEANSE.

Last week, we talked about Intuition and how the more you podcast, the more you develop your Podcast Intuition. This works hand-in-hand with “Spring Cleaning” your podcast.

There will always be a good time to release that which doesn't serve you and many people use Spring Cleaning as an excuse for this. If you haven't already gotten on the Marie Kondo/KonMari Method bandwagon, no worries; here's a Podcast Cleaning crash course.

Podcasting Word of the Week: Intuition

I picked the word INTUITION as this week's word because when I saw the date was 3/11, I immediately thought of the band 311 and "You've got to trust your instincts ..." lyrics.

Don't judge! The '90s music scene was amazing!

Anyway, I picked intuition, thinking I could use "instinct" and "intuition" interchangeably. Turns out, instincts are more biologically-based, meaning we have instincts as soon as we are born. Intuition, on the other hand, is an accumulated belief. This is something you learn over time or you learn enough about similar things to be able to guide you when it comes to a new situation.

Last week, we talked about having Hope for your podcast to find just the right listener, and in order to do that, you have to build your knowledge of the show you create, which, in turn, builds your intuition about the direction the show should go.

Podcasting Word of the Week: Hope

Here in New England, we are pretty much DONE with winter. It was nice, but we’re getting restless. Sometimes, you may feel like this with your podcast, except instead of winter, it seems the work of putting out a show every week is never-ending.

So why do it?

One word: HOPE, which is this week’s podcasting word!

Last week, we talked about Wonder and how we can create that feeling for our listeners so they are excited about us and our podcast and/or business.

But what about those of us who feel like we can’t get to that level because we don’t have the interaction with our audience like that yet?

Podcasting Word of the Week: Express

Who are you? When you get behind that microphone, are you speaking with your real voice? Or the voice you think your audience wants to hear?

This week’s word is EXPRESS..

Last week, we talked about the Love you should feel for your podcast and your audience. But true love only comes when we are willing to EXPRESS who we are to others.

Podcasting Word of the Week: Grounding

Happy (belated) Groundhog’s Day! For those of us in the United States, we look at this day as an indication of the next few weeks ahead. Except that we’re depending on an animal seeing his shadow to predict this. Luckily, with the future of your podcast, you don’t need an animal’s shadow to predict that.

This week’s word is GROUNDING.

Last week, we talked about courage in podcasting and the week before that, we talked about dreaming, but this week, I want you to focus on grounding yourself.

Podcasting Word of the Week: Courage

Whether you’re just getting started with your podcast or you’ve been behind the microphone for years, it’s always scary when you put something out to the world.

Even if you’re a veteran podcaster, some little part of you may still get that jolt of panic as soon as you press Publish. So many “what ifs?” can come into our head in those milliseconds as we watch our show upload to the world.

This week’s word is COURAGE.

Podcasting Word of the Week: Dream

Do you remember the moment you first said, “Hey, I should start a podcast!”? Do you remember what that idea felt like? It wasn’t just an idea; it was a dream. A dream you may have already turned into reality.

This week’s word is DREAM.

Coinciding with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, today can be seen as a reminder of the dreams we all have, including yours.

Podcasting Word of the Week: Commit

Now that 2019 is underway, time to honor your intentions of making 2019 an amazing year for both you and your podcast!

This week’s word is COMMIT.

In last week’s post, we took some time to rejuvenate your podcast, as well as yourself. Hopefully you thought about what changes you wanted to make to your show and how you can come to your audience as fresh as possible.
