388 My Thoughts After One Month With Patreon & The Response From My Mailing List Subscribers

A One Month Patreon Update
In this episode, I share why I made the decision to cancel the Patreon accounts that I had set up for my Podcast Answer Man and Family From The Heart podcasts. I also share why and how I plan to continue moving forward with my Patreon account for PABL.


The Response I Received From My New Email Approach
In last week's episode, I talked about the lengthy email update that I sent to my mailing list. You might be surprised to hear the number of unsubscribes and email responses that I received from my community. Click the play button above to learn more.


384 – Celebrating Nine Years In Podcasting


This week's episode is a bit out of the norm for Podcast Answer Man. I just retruned to the studio after being away for two weeks. I had a great Thanksgiving holiday followed by an eight day family vacation to Orlando, Florida.

Unofortunately, I brought a case of bronchitus back home from my trip and my head was feeling a bit foggy this week. Rather than take the week off, I decided to share just a few things that I've been thinking about since the last time I recorded.

Topics included in this episode
– While I love the Yosemite OS for MAC, I don't suggest that you upgrade.
– The OmniDazzle software (Note: No longer supported)
– Celebrating nine years of Podcasting.
– My first ever podcast episode.
– My thoughts on what my priorities will be for 2015
– Michael Hyatt's Best Year Ever Program
– Patreon Update

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.

383 Patreon – A Podcaster’s Perspective

What is Patreon?
From their about page: “Founded in May 2013 and based in San Francisco, California, Patreon was created to enable fans to support and engage with the artists and creators they love. Empowering a new generation of creators, Patreon is bringing patronage back to the 21st century.”


In this episode of Podcast Answer Man, I share my thoughts on the Patreon service from a podcaster's perspective. I share why I have decided to create an account for three of my podcasts, why I decided to set it up per episode rather than per month, as well as all sorts of other details about how the Patreon service works.

    352 Twitter Photos – Photo Tagging – Skype TX – Patreon – Naming New Studio And More!

    twitterTwitter Photos & Tag Spam
    In this week's social media segment, Erik Fisher joins me to discuss Twitter's new ability to upload four pictures to a single tweet using their mobile application. We also talk about the ability to tag people in the photos you upload form the mobile Twitter app. This led us into a discussion about tag spam among other things.

    Way of Life App for iOS
    Last week, I shared my greatest pet peeve with the Lift App. Thanks to my great friend, Kim Landwehr, I have started to use the Way of Life App for iOS. Listen to this episode to learn what I like this application so much and what habits I am attempting to make a part of my daily life.

    Patreon For #PABL?
    In episode 573 of Pursuing A Balanced Life, I shared with my community that I'm considering the launch of a Patreon campaign to take my #PABL podcast to the next level.

    Skype TX
    Many of you have asked me to give my opinion on the announcement of Skype TX. My opinion on this is that it is too early to have an opinion on this. When they finally release pricing and hardware specs, we'll have more to go on.

    Congrats Troy & Wayne
    A big congratulations to Troy Heinritz and Wayne Henderson for the shout out of their Resurrection Revealed podcast that they received from 104.5 FM in Wilmington North Carolina.
