When I started podcasting in October 2014, the intention was pure. I wasn't in it to make money or to expect a ton of downloads. It was easy for me to feel that way (expecting little of what would come out of my own podcast. Sorry, I didn't write this to discourage anyone).

English is my second language. I think I'm a good storyteller but I was never picked in school or at work to stand on a podium and blab my brains out.

I had a full-time job that was wearing on me. I knew I wanted to be a freelancer, or an entrepreneur. But I didn't put all my hope in podcasting and thought that was going to be my breakthrough. Why? Nobody I knew did, and most people I know (still) don't have a podcast.

Why the heck did I do it then? I wanted to "pick myself", and do something on my own, with full creative control.

I imagined my future children to want to learn something about their mom, and my friends tuning in to find out what I've been up to lately. That's it.

As you may have already found out through reading my eBooks, the journey of my podcast was so much more than that, Utterly unexpected at first, and then I learned to embrace what the act of podcasting has brought into my life.

I want to tell you the truth, the misconceptions, and what others (especially the ultra-successful podcasters) didn't tell you.
