Dan Miller Interview – Author of 48 Days To The Work You Love
I started podcasting as a hobby four years ago, on December 16th, 2005. Over the course of the first two years, it became a dream of mine to do podcasting full-time as my career. Two years ago, on January 1st, 2008, I took the bold step of leaving my 11 year career in insurance, making $87,000 per year, to make my dream a reality.
I'm going to post some important links below in just a moment. However, right now, I want to tell you how yet another dream has been made a reality. You see, when I started my business, I had NO IDEA what I was doing. I had never had any formal business training. I had no clue about how to deal with accounting, taxes, unemployment insurance, etc. It was all very overwhelming to me and I had a great deal of anxiety about how to make the work I love to do pay the bills.
I hope that you enjoy the interview with Dan nearly as much as I enjoyed the opportunity to have this conversation with him. Here are the links that I mentioned in the episode:
http://gspn.tv/passion – This link will take you to Pursuing A Balanced Life Episode 425 titled “Follow Your Passion And The Money Will Follow.” I hope that you'll find this episode inspirational as I share just how far our business has come in under two years.
http://gspn.tv/passion2 – This link will take you to Family From The Heart episode 88 titled “Difficult Decisions.” This episode is like a sequel to the episode mentioned previously. In this episode, my wife joined me as we shared the reality of just how difficult things were in that first year of doing our own business.
http://gspn.tv/48-Days – This link will take you to a special page that I created where I have all the episodes that I recorded as my audio review of the book 48 Days To The Work You Love. In fact, when I listen back to these episodes, I'm amazed at just how much my mindset about what I do has changed.
Let's Work Together:
I mentor coaches, consultants and thought leaders through the transition from an unfulfilling day job to a profitable online business so that you can live the life of your dreams and do the work you feel most called to do in the world.
Over the past decade, I have had the privilege and honor of working with folks like Michael Hyatt, Pat Flynn, Amy Porterfield, Ray Edwards, John Lee Dumas, Dan Miller and thousands of others on the successful launch of their audio podcasts. The most exciting part of my work, with many of these folks, has been helping them create and build a profitable online business around their podcasting efforts.
If you are ready to take your message, your business and your life to the next level, check out my Work With Me page to see how we can work together.
While I teach that it is possible to start your podcast with under $100 in recording equipment, a large number of my clients and students have told me that they simply want the exact gear that I use to record my own podcasts. That's why I created the Podcast Answer Man Equipment Package back in 2008. If you would like to see the gear that I'm using in my own studio, click here to check it out.
