Hopefully you read my last post about the return of my program on Blog Talk Radio. If you didn’t that’s okay, you can pick it up from here, or read it and come back. The short version – the program is coming back after almost two years later this month or early June.
When I started the podcast I was in full technology exploration mode. I was trying every social network I could find, creating videos for YouTube and blogging. Pod Casting seemed cool and Blog Talk Radio had the tools to allow me to get going with minimal effort. So I tried it out…
Then something really cool happened.
A fire was lit, I really enjoyed Pod Casting and became quite passionate about it. These kinds of fires are not easily extinguished, but they do flicker occasionally allowing us to get consumed by other priorities. During the break I recognized that having those conversations, making deeper connections with people and learning about what mattered most to them is really important to me. Many of the guests were friends, others were people I had just seen on TV or saw speak somewhere. They all had one thing in common, they inspired me and I learned from them. It wasn’t just the guests, some of the greatest moments involved the people who participated in the chats on btr and called in to say hi. There were even co-hosts like Gini Dietrich and guest hosts like Kathrina Rashid and Erica Allison.
A New Theme
The new theme was inspired by a couple of sessions in my hammock:
Things were very experimental with the original podcast and as a result I cast a very wide net with the topics. There will be great flexibility with the re-launched version, but it will also be more focused. I really like helping people, and I’m not saying that because I’m trying to impress you or make you think that I am a great person. I am just a normal guy but I am blessed with a tiny but important piece of life experience. The experience of feeling great benefit from the opportunity to help others. I believe this is something that is present in all of us but might require a little spark to bring out. It’s what I do personally and professionally, it’s how I’ve managed to stay self employed for a very long time. This is something we can share and help others experience.
Which brings us the new theme “The Inner Circle”
The objective of the podcast will be to give people ideas to improve their businesses and their lives. Anyone that contributes to this will be part of the inner circle, contributing to others and experiencing the rewards of helping others.
Open to Ideas
I’ve been brainstorming on potential guests, my first episode is likely to be either May 21st or May 28th. The booking process has begun, but I am still open to YOUR ideas.
