Two years ago, my beloved mentor Dorie Clark and I had coffee near the financial district in New York City. I told her how my podcast was the trigger for my business, Feisworld. I left my full-time job in advertising and began freelancing as a digital producer for companies and people. Many of them met me through the podcast as guests, friends of guests, and even listeners.

She urged me to write a blog post, and I came up with a name I was quite proud of called “How to Make a Living Without Counting the Downloads”. Within months, Dorie interviewed me and captured the essence of my story and published it in Entrepreneurial You, her best-selling book on Amazon, and an article where many people found me and learned about my work on Harvard Business Review.

Shortly after my encounter with Dorie, I realized that I couldn't possibly be the only lucky, independent, under the radar podcaster who’s benefited from having her own show.

I decided to write this blog post, record it as a podcast episode and share with the world. It’s awesome to hear people’s stories and realize it could be anyone, so why not you?
