Own It! Shows challenges defeated

Own It! Shows challenges defeated

Evaldas: Yeah, that’s quite a heavy lifting tips that anyone can use. Can you point out any single problem you had when you started out? I mean, you mentioned that missing knowledge, but you had something that you had to overcome?

Nicola: Just so disorganized, Evaldas. I just really am. My sister had to get involved on the interview podcast because I just was hopeless. I’m just not very good at doing things repetitively. So, I suppose, that’s an entrepreneurial creative thing, isn’t it? I can set up systems but I’m not very good at following them. So, she was the one who set up a system for contacting pod potential guests, confirming with them, getting them booked in, making sure they send over a photo and a biography and all that business, letting them know when their episode was ready to be published, encouraging them to share it. Although, like I said, they mostly didn’t.

So, that kind of thing. If you’re more of the star quality kind of person, star creator kind of person, then get help from a VA doing all that stuff, because that podcast would have died a death a long time ago if it wasn’t for her. With Own It!, it’s a lot easier. We just rock up on a Wednesday morning at 10 o’clock. We’ve prepared, each of us, singly, what we want to say in each section. I do the editing straight afterwards, and I choose the picture, and then my VA, Patricia, takes it from there, and she does all the techy bits to get it online.

Evaldas: Yeah, that’s quite a setup you have like outsource or like delegate things you’re not good at, and you just concentrate on the things you are good at.

Nicola: Yeah, the things you enjoy too, because if you don’t enjoy them, you certainly won’t do them.
