As I mentioned in last week's episode, I've decided to take the week off to celebrate the Christmas holiday with my family and friends. However, I wanted to find a way to still provide an episode of Podcast Answer Man.
John and David had been referred to me by my great friend, Michael Hyatt. Based upon his recommendation, they decided to sign up for the November 2013 session of my Podcasting A to Z course. After taking the course, they successfully launched their show and blogged about their experience.
I was honored to be invited to be a guest on their show. While I've been interivewed hundreds of times, this was the first the host(s) of the show asked questions that had me evalualte the valuable lessons that I've learned about people from my experience in teaching others how to podcast.
I realize that this may seem like a huge advertisement for my course. Yes, I do have my next session starting on Monday, January 12th. However, the main reason I wanted to share this interview was that I believe there are some great insights into what has caused some people to succeed in podcasting while others, even those who had shown so much potential, failed to lauch.
I hope that you enjoy the episode and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
Special Thanks to my Patreon Supporters
I am so incredibly thankful for those who have decided to show their support for Podcast Answer Man by becoming a Patreon supporter (list of supporters here).
A few folks had suggested that I create a Patreon account because they wanted another way to financially support the content that I created here. They mentioned that as a result of the free content that I've created, they've been able to launch a successful podcast and/or take their business to the next level without neededing to purchase any of the products or services that I have offered.
Special Thanks to Ana Melikian from the Mindset Zone Podcast for being the first Patreon supporter at $25 or more per episode.

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.
