Here are a few things to take into account before jumping in the deep end. Many have and many have failed.
One thing you have to remember about becoming a podcaster is that one it's easy to set up even a baby can set up a podcast, but the real task is that it isn't easy running a podcast.
Why isn't it easy? OK, here we go. Running a podcast can be frustrating sometimes, especially if you have to edit, take bookings, design digital posters, promotional side, marketing, constantly constructing content on your website, and then there is expanding your podcast with new ideas, and that takes alot of work and understanding.
You have to work out what it is you are really trying to achieve here, like for us it is spreading inspiring message to the world to empower others. So you may be an author and you want to interview authors? You could be in business and you could be the one to share business talks with your listeners.
What ever it is you do, you need to find out what kind of podcast you want. I am intrested to know what you guys find hard about starting a podcast. What are you fearing? What stops you?
