The story behind Marc’s podcast

The story behind Marc’s podcast

Marc: Yeah. When I first started, back it was September of 2014. I jumped into John Lee Dumas’ Podcasters’ Paradise community, and most people probably know John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur On Fire. So it was a great community, I delved into the resources there, had a ton of videos and screen shares on stuff on editing. Then I learned as much as I could through there. I started there, it was September 2014 and then my show launched November 17th. So it did take about 2 months to launched the show, but usually, it shouldn’t take 2 months to launch a show, and the reason it took that long was I had to record so many interviews with the daily show. A part of what I do with the coaches I worked with is, one of the services I have is I help coach them through launching their podcasts, kind of hold their hand and walk them through it. Most of my clients in a month, they can get their show launched. So yeah, that’s kind of how it happened from there.

Evaldas: As you said, when you were just starting, to avoid over thinking too much.

Marc: There’s a great quote actually, General Patton’s, a great American general said that “A good plan violently executed today is better than a perfect plan next week.” One thing I find in the coaching world, and I think this pertains to any entrepreneur and podcasters is perfectionism, it will kill if you’re worried about being perfect, and a lot of people are just waiting too long. They’re just trying to get everything absolutely perfect which is impossible anyways, but that’s delaying things. So I know people who have taken 6 months to a year to launch their podcast, they’ve taken nearly that long. So I’m the type of person, I’d rather jump in with something even if it’s a 7 or an 8 out of 10, and then I could work on improving it, as opposed to trying to get it setup so it’s a 10 out of 10 out of the gate, which probably isn’t possible anyways.

Evaldas: Yeah, and you can improve much more when you’re actually doing things than you think you are doing.

Marc: The longer you take too, there’s a chance of people get whispering in your ear. People say “What’s a podcast?” I’m not sure about you, you’re in Malta, I’m in Canada, so in my neck of the woods here, podcasting’s getting more popular but it’s still not widely-known for the general population. So, if I had went and talk to a bunch of people here in my home city, and I was talking about a podcast or something, they’d probably will say, “What are you talking about? You’re nuts.” And then they would have talk to me out of it or tried to. So I like just jumping in and it’s good to get feedback from people uncertain in regards to that,but I can see feedback being a bad thing sometimes too. If you let it knock you off course, it’s bad.

Evaldas: Yeah, definitely. Especially if you concentrate only in your local area while the podcast is international, so you almost have a global reach.
