Podcasting A to Z
Since March of 2011, I've completed nine sessions of my Podcasting A to Z course, helping more than 170 people launch successful podcasts. My next course starts on Monday, March 4th and I woud love to help you launch your podcast or take your existing podcast efforts to the next level!
Everyone who signs up for Podcasting A to Z gets immediate access to all the training materials. I've had students who launched their podcast within the first week of the course as a result of this. Sign up using discount code “PAM” in the shopping cart and you'll save $100.

Posterous Is Shutting Down
I found out from Mashable that Posterous will be shutting down this April. Posterous is a blogging platform (and more) that had millions of users. However, Twitter purchased the company last year and recently announced that as of April 30th, 2013, they will completely shut down the service and the blogs created by the millions of users will no longer be available to view or edit.
This is yet another reason why I feel that it is important that folks consider creating their own self-hosted WordPress website. To see my full thoughts on website and podcast hosting, please see my hosting blog post.
1 Pixel Out Audio Player Is Back!
I'm very happy to announce that the 1 Pixel Out audio player has been updated and no longer poses a security threat. As a result, the great folks at BluBrry have added it back into the most recent update to the PowerPress Plugin.
Your Twitter Archive Is Now Declassified!
I was thrilled to learn that that not only did Twitter add the ability to download every Twitter post we've ever made, they created an amazing stylized html document that easily allows you to browse through your entire archive by month and year. If reading this does not excite you, have a listen to Erik and I discuss this in our Social Media Segment and see if you can understand why I feel this is the greatest thing to happen in Social Media since Twitter first launched.

ScreenFlow Tutorial is Now Available
I originally created The ScreenFlow Basics tutorial as a Podcast Mastermind Success Seminar in response to members who asked if I could demonstrate how I use ScreenFlow to create the digital tutorials and other various videos that I have made available.
I have decided to also make this tutorial available, for purchase, for those who are not Podcast Mastermind members, as this has been one of the top requested training products from my Podcasting A to Z students over the past few years.
This cost of the tutorial is $39 and it contains a total of 99 minutes of me showing some of the basic editing techniques that I use with ScreenFlow and it also includes many tips about resources that can help you take your videos to the “Next Level.”

The Podcast Mastermind
One of the reasons that I love working with podcasters so much is due to the fact that they are influencing someone every single time they produce a podcast episode. The world needs great leaders! I believe that podcasters who take their leadership position seriously can make a positive difference in the lives of others. The world needs you and your message! They need you to be a leader!
Many people ask me how to grow the audience of their podcast. I believe that one of the best things you can do is to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! To take yourself seriously! To consider yourself to be a professional!
Are you willing to invest in your future success?
Are you willing to be the greatest leader you can be?
Are you willing to commit to your personal and professional growth?
If so, please consider joining The Podcast Mastermind!
