Invest in your passions. Follow things that interest you. My entire podcasting career comes from the fact that when I heard about podcasting and realized what it was, went all in EVEN when there was no money to be made. Remember in 2005, podcasting was not a billion-dollar industry. Yet, I KNEW it was going to be a powerful way the entire world could share and connect.
Fast forward to last year when I began to play around with social audio of Clubhouse and Twitter Spaces. I KNEW the live aspect and interaction were going to make this a big global connector. It most definitely has been that for me and many others active in the social audio space.
When I was named to the Top 22 Experts to Follow for 2022 Twitter Spaces list I had no idea how it would open the door to guest interviews on several International shows. My global reach has expanded in a way the 2005 version of myself would be amazed at.
I owe so much to Jennifer from 2005. That Jennifer went all-in with podcasting and invested the time, effort, and resources it took to turn a simple passion into a career. The rewards which stemmed from that investment far outweigh a single dollar made. That investment has given me far more than I could have dreamed of all those years ago.
My message to you?
Invest in your passions.
I use the word invest because it is most definitely going to take an investment of time and resources to take your passion and turn it into something fulfilling and meaningful.
Only you get to decide what = fulfilling and meaningful.
By investing in your passion you allow yourself the freedom to see where that investment will take you. My own journey has been the most amazing adventure and one I am grateful I began 16 years ago.
