“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.” If you are thinking about starting a podcast, Jump Start Your Podcast is the ONLY online course I would consider.

Who is this class for?

This class is a great option for you if:

  • you’re serious about launching a show, and have some ideas about what your show will be about
  • you’ve got a blog or small 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
  • you are comfortable with technology and understand the basics of blogging and/or social media
  • you’re an self starter that is comfortable learning in groups, and are OK with asking for extra help if you need it
  • you like to have fun while you learn
  • you’ve got a big heart and are yearning for community around something you’re excited about doing
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!”

“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.

The class will outline the basics of what you need to start a show, and it’s recommended that you are relatively comfortable with (or feel comfortable learning how to do) things like: setting up or updating a blog, uploading files to a dropbox or similar type of tool, and learning new software. Basic instruction will be provided, and there will be portions of self study required by students. You do not have to have a website or blog up and running (nor do you necessarily need one to launch a podcast). The class departs from an assumption that you already have a site or are comfortable building and updating one on your own.
