I receive emails all the time from listeners listing their questions, concerns, and hesitations about starting a podcast management business. Some people worry about taking on a position of authority where they're making recommendations and guiding people. Others are concerned about their technological knowledge in this rapidly growing industry. Whatever your hesitation is, keep in mind that you can learn what you don't know, but if you don't enjoy the process of learning or the essence of the job itself, it isn't going to be right for you. 

On today's episode, I want to get real with you. I want to take an honest look at the Podcast Management job and lay out some facts that you'll seriously want to consider before making this your career. I'll be going over the nuts and bolts of the job itself, the day-to-day reality, and what you need to be successful. It's my hope that giving you these details up front will help you make an informed choice about joining this profession. 


In this episode, we cover:

- The details of podcast management itself, including managing details, guiding podcasters, and taking the initiative.

- The fact that even if you're not doing the editing, you're still listening to many podcast episodes per week, so you'd better like podcasts in the first place! 

- How the podcast industry is rapidly evolving, and your job success and satisfaction will depend on your ability to stay on top of things. 


Thanks for listening! If you'd like to chat more about this topic, I'd love to continue this conversation over on Instagram:
