There's No Security in Podcasting (or Anything)
This is a buzzkill for some, I know. But it's worth mentioning.
I've been self-employed for over 25 years. During that time, I've learned a lot of lessons, and maybe the biggest is that there's ZERO security in anything other than our tenacity to keep going. And even that is difficult to maintain.
Sometimes I've thought I had business (and life) "figured out." And maybe I did ... for a brief moment.
Or maybe I just got lucky and was fooled by randomness.
It doesn't matter. But what does matter is the more you keep moving forward, the more of these "good" situations you'll have.
IF YOU REMEMBER ONE THING FROM THIS NEWSLETTER, REMEMBER THIS ...
If you're looking at another podcaster and thinking, "That guy has it all figured out," you are wrong—he doesn't have it figured out. Nobody does.
So welcome to the arena. You're here with some great people, all of us getting banged up, but also "getting lucky" from time to time.
