“My dream is bigger than my fear.”

Have you ever felt like that?

My guest today, Debbie Gonzales, heard that from a guest she interviewed on her brand new podcast and she said it’s what pushed her forward to launch.

In this on-air coaching call, Debbie asks me questions about launching her podcast, including:

  • Creating a community of listeners
  • The magic number for a Facebook group
  • Tips for working with a podcast editor/team
  • Imposter syndrome
  • How I felt when I published my first episode
  • Promotion strategy when launching
  • And more

If you are thinking of or in the midst of launching a podcast, you’ll definitely want to listen to this episode as well as episode 87 on Launching a Podcast: What’s Important and What’s Not.
