create your dream podcast

You’re a “heart-centered disrupter” – coach, or healer, or in the medical field with a passion for the work you do. You see that part of your purpose here on the planet is to shake up the status quo in your own heart centered way. You’ve got a good handle on who you serve and why you serve them, and you want to share your unique angle on your area of expertise with others through podcasting. You’re kind of, sort of, obsessed with podcasts and just *know* you’d love to have a show, but you’re not sure where to start, how to do it, or what *exactly* your new show is about. 

That’s where Jump Start Your Podcast picks up: with your idea, your voice, and your angle. 

Jump Start Your Podcast is one of the best things I’ve done for myself, hands down. I knew I wanted to start a podcast but had no idea where to start. Paula’s class broke everything down for me in manageable steps and Paula is there guiding you every step of the way. Bonus, Paula is super fun to work with and loves talking about the heart behind your podcast as well as the technical stuff. When I was pulling my hair out over my launch Paula was there to answer questions and support me. If anyone is interested in hosting a podcast but feeling overwhelmed I would say work with Paula, she’s the bee’s knees!

Workbook & Checklists

Our class material will be available in Teachable, an online space that will let you print out the PDFs of a full workbook Paula created just for this class.

We’ll meet together, get to know one another, and support each other as each member launches their podcast. Plus! Lots of fun and joy is infused throughout.


For your show: free codes to get a month of hosting, and 100 minutes of editing software.
For your launch: Office hours that get to the heart of your questions around tech and launch.

Paula’s first-hand experience with her own successful podcast, coupled with her training and sensibility as a transformative life coach, was a fabulous combination. She created a welcoming community among the participants, shared her personal words of wisdom and tested tactics, and developed clear documentation to go along with the engaging group calls. I would highly recommend Jump Start Your Podcast to anyone looking for a personal guide and comprehensive training at the start of their podcast journey.

attract your ideal clients

Here’s what an amazing past client had to say about how she discovered my coaching practice:

“I LOVED your podcast (and still do). You are someone I knew I would be comfortable having a vulnerable conversation with. You ask great questions that resulted in great conversations, and I was excited to see what we could discover together in my path to joy. Your podcast helped me trust that you would help me get there.”

– Nicole 

Just imagine how awesome it would be to have your ideal clients finding you through your podcast – already feeling like you’re the perfect match for them, and being super excited to work with YOU.

who is this PODCASTING class for?

    You’re in the right place if you:
  • are a coach, healer, or medical professional and are clear on who you serve and how you serve them
  • are serious about launching a show, and have some ideas about what your show will be about
  • have a blog or site for your growing business, and see podcasting as an addition to your brand or message, and want to use it as a vehicle to spread your message to the world
  • are comfortable with technology and understand the basics of blogging and/or social media
  • are a self starter that is comfortable learning in groups, and are OK with asking for extra help if you need it
  • like to have fun while you learn
  • appreciate DIY and want to understand how things work, and are not expecting to have everything done for you
  • have a big heart and are yearning for community around something you’re excited about doing

There are “how-to” courses for starting a podcast and then, there is Jump Start Your Podcast. Paula’s course offers a unique perspective that is not just the nuts and bolts and technical “how to’s” of getting your podcast launched; she can also provide intuitive insight to help you discover fears that are keeping you from realizing that dream. Paula is a powerful life coach and her guidance really helped me overcome unexpected vulnerability when I launched the Midlife Schmidlife podcast. Point blank, my podcast most likely wouldn’t have happened and would still be one of those things I want to do “some day.”

experience the joy of podcasting

Podcasting has had such a powerful impact on my own business. I started in 2015 with the intent that it become the marketing arm of my coaching practice. It has become that, and more. 95% of my business (both coaching and biz coaching) comes from the connections I make doing my show. 

I’d love to show you the ropes so you can experience that same magic for yourself. And don’t worry, in Jump Start Your Podcast I’ve got you covered when it comes to moving through fear, learning the tech stuff, to launching your podcast and more! You’ll be running your podcast faster than you may think. I can’t wait to work with you!

The first rule of podcasting:
It’s your own show and you can do whatever you want with it.
