Yesterday I recorded (and today I edited) my first “professional” podcast… that is, the first episode of the new podcast we are doing at my job. It was incredibly exciting. I got to spend a little money on upgraded equipment from what I own at home (mixer, mics, etc.), get the troops rallied around the concept, develop show outlines and schedules, etc.
As you heard in the first podcast episode of WTF EX, some of the most important things Jeff and I thought were necessary for managing time were bringing in sanity and happiness to that mix. In this particular example, what makes me more happy than anything else is being able to take something I’ve learned and experimented with in my spare time over the last few years and apply it to work. I’m actually making money doing something I love, and on top of that, I’m spreading valuable information that will make the world a better place. I don’t forget for an instant that what I just said doesn’t happen to many people, and I’m incredibly thankful for it.
How about you all? Do you have any life stories / examples of something similar?
(BTW, if you’re reading this blog and haven’t responded saying who you are, you’re obligated to do so!)
I’ve been waiting to hear more about this new podcast you’re doing, any chance we’ll get a link?
Probably not :). It’s a much different type of show, and I don’t really have any desire to cross audiences with this one.
Besides, it’s not even really about me or has anything to do with me. I’m just there to record and moderate.
