September is going to be jam-packed with celebrations, and the fiesta is going to be epic. WomELLE, in collaboration with Margo Lovett’s Podcast Academy Online, is launching the historical celebration of podcasters: Hey Podcasters. WomELLE is an excellent vision in itself — an idea and effort of a few that has positively impacted many lives. And from this trusted and loved group, Hey Podcasters is a guaranteed success journey. Partnering with the corporate lady-turned-podcaster Margo Lovett, the series will have interviews and panel discussions.
Now, are you still wondering why join the celebration? Here are 5 reasons why you should celebrate your accomplishments:
Through the course of the podcast series, you get to listen to remarkable podcasters and their journeys. This natural and tested wisdom in such abundance can’t be found in bookstores or classrooms. Here you get to learn from their mistakes and become inspired by their success.
The anecdotes shared in these talks are worth in gold as motivation for life. Imagine the profound impact Founder and CEO of Podfest Expo, Chris Krimitsos, can have in your life. Hey Podcasters will have Chris in conversation with Margo, sharing his stories and life work. This is the knowledge you earn for life — an investment that matters.
The expert marketer, podcaster, and founder of Simpler Media– Evo Terra– is also part of the celebration. This “podcasting’s philosopher” and “professional contrarian” has some great lessons for the podcasters. His vision for the future of podcasting is inspirational to the core.
A real celebration helps put things in perspective of what is and what can be. And to grow, the first step is to realize where you stand. A journey can only begin after that. Setting real and concrete goals is also a huge step towards success. With real people narrating real success, your perspective widens, and so do the limits of your imagination.
3 Community building
The podcasters of this celebration also include the creators of Girls Ask Guys Show, John Newport and Ashley Sanders. This dating and relationship podcast has transcended into new horizons, making their community grow stronger and broader. Now, where better to learn this skill of community building? The advice you get from them is not just words from the curriculum. These are tried-and-tested ways and means to achieve great heights. Podcasters who are part of Hey Podcasters get to link their podcast with the website. This, here, is a fine example of community building.
Networking is a major tool in every field. A new acquaintance is a unique asset. Through connections, networks are built, and horizons are widened. Some may provide great lessons, some open new avenues; some introduce you to a potential audience; the list goes on. So, the significance of networking is immeasurably big. With programs like Hey Podcasters, networking becomes easy and fun.
Podcasters of this celebration are people who started from scratch and worked their way up. They are self-made, and so is their success. The importance of marketing is a lesson repeated by each of them. To market yourself is a skill that is central in this field. You are the most trusted source of your creation and to promote it is to assert its brilliance.
An eminent guest of this series is Dave Lee. A big name in the field, he is the co-founder of International Podcast Day and is known for The Waves of Tech podcast. Experienced podcasters like Dave can prove the importance of skills like marketing and guide you through the process.
And finally, celebrate for celebration’s sake. The word is often confused with bare enjoyment or partying. Celebration is much more profound than that. The first-hand lessons from people who have achieved great things are a rare blessing. These podcasts will bring forth the conversations that brighten the day. And such hope and mental peace are paramount to our life.
The Celebration of Podcasters is about the guests as well as the listeners. You, as a listener, become an equally integral part of the celebration, making it your own. Like Oprah Winfrey said: “The more you celebrate your life, the more there is life to celebrate.” That is exactly the kind of celebration Hey Podcasters is going to be. This is the life-changing talk(s) you’ve been waiting for. Wait no more. Join the fiesta and begin celebrating your journey.
I have to agree with this article, taking time to celebrate is very important and we should do it more often. I am not a podcaster but I am a support of both Womelle and the podcasting world. I am celebrating with all the podcasters in my circle.
