Hell yeah – it’s finally here!
After thinking about starting a podcast for nearly two years PodSessions with Mitch Fanning is now live. Sometimes you have to stop over-thinking things, just start, and figure it out as you go.
For the launch, I’ve published two sessions.
Session 1: Why Struggle Is Good with Kari-Elmes-Fanning
Session 2: Discovering Your Path with Jodi Handrahan
I now have a really BIG important favour to ask, which I don’t do often:
1) Please listen to one or both sessions.
2) Then, PLEASE leave a review on iTunes.
3) Contact me to suggest a guest (okay this one’s optional).
I realize this is a lot to ask, but I will read EVERY review and, based on that feedback, use it to improve the show (it will also be the “oxygen” I use to keep me going).
Season 1: What to Expect
For Season 1, I’ll be putting out a total of 6 sessions. The first season effectively starts today and ends August 1, 2018. On average, I’ll release a session every 2 weeks (towards the end of a week).
I already have some amazing people lined up and ready to go, including a former all-star pro-athlete, an award-winning author, and a serial tech entrepreneur who (so far) has founded 3 multi-million dollar businesses.
Once the season has concluded, I’ll take the month of August off to review the results and begin preparations for Season 2, which should start sometime in September 2018.
Again, constructive criticism and suggestions for improvement are welcome, whether on iTunes, Email, Twitter or Instagram (use hashtag #mitchcast). In fact, if you’re on Twitter and would like to help me “get the word” out please consider retweeting this. Thanks in advance :).
All that said, here are the first two sessions! I really hope you enjoy them.
In this finding-my-feet session, Kari Elmes-Fanning (@xocuzinzboutique) and I share a few laughs (and tears) as we discuss a variety of topics including:
- Why I started a podcast (and the advice I received)
- What to expect from this podcast (and from season 1)
- Why I decided to take a sabbatical (and my experience so far)
- The challenges of starting something new (and why struggle is good)
- Kari’s experience (and lessons) starting a women’s clothing boutique 11 years ago
Dive in, folks!
It’s the first session of PodSessions with Mitch Fanning!
