1005. What I’ve Learned Podcasting 1,000 Episodes

Since celebrating my 1000th episode last week, I’ve been thinking about what I’ve learned on this podcasting journey. It feels surreal to say that I have researched, recorded, and published over 1,000 episodes, but it proves to me that dedication is the key to maintaining steady growth. 

In this episode, I’m looking back on what has helped me achieve this major milestone, including my approach to content, what I do when I feel like I’m out of ideas, and how to embrace positive pressure. Plus, I share my huge podcast goal for this year and how you can help me get there.
