Dealing With Negative Feedback
It's been a long time since I last covered the topic of dealing with negative feedback. Earlier this week, I was listening to the Jillian Michaels Show and she had an episode titled Haters Are Gonna Hate.
In this episode, I shared about seven and a half minutes from Jillian's show and gave a few of my thoughts on the importance of discerning the difference between when someone has a legitimate criticism of your podcast and whether or not the person is simply projecting their own issues and problems on to you. (This topic starts at 00:48:47)
I've actually talked about dealing with negative feedback with much greater detail in episode 106 of Podcast Answer Man. If this is a topic of interest to you, I highly encourage you to check out that episode.
While I have received my share of extremely negative and hurtful criticism over the past several years, I don't usually share it in Podcast Answer Man. However, I did make an exception for episode 198 of Podcast Answer Man. If you want to hear a hater hating on me, I encourage you to check out that episode.
How Do I Recover From A Podfading Experience?
Jonathan Gaby recently sent me an email saying, “I started a podcast several months ago and have succumbed to the dreaded pod-fade. Ugh, I know right? How embarrassing and humiliating. So, how does one gracefully and with mucho class recover and restart the podcast?”
In this episode, I talk about what podfading is and I give several thoughts to consider when deciding how to move forward after you have abandoned your podcast audience. (00:08:22)

Upcoming Event Schedule
One of my favorite things about traveling to, and speaking at conferences, is meeting members of my community. I always make it a point to host a community meetup wherever I travel.
Below is a list of events that you might be interested in. If you can make it to any of these events, I'd love to have the opportunity to meet you. If you are not able to attend the event, but are in that area, I'd still love for you to come to the personal community meetup that I will host in that town.
