During the episode, I also shed light on the differences between a podcast editor, producer, and manager. While a podcast editor focuses solely on editing the audio, a podcast manager takes on a more comprehensive role, handling various tasks related to producing and promoting the show. The term "producer" can sometimes be used interchangeably with "manager" and often implies a more hands-on approach in the creative process. 

As a podcast manager, you have the opportunity to provide additional services like video editing, YouTube management, and even pitching your client to be a guest on other shows. The podcast management field offers room for growth and specialization. 

By diversifying your skill set, you can provide valuable support to your clients while creating new revenue streams for your own business. If you're considering transitioning from being a virtual assistant or a podcast editor to a podcast manager, there are a few factors to consider. Are you someone who enjoys the details and the creative aspect of working on a podcast? Do you find fulfillment in being part of a team and assisting your clients in growing their shows? If so, then marketing yourself as a podcast manager can open up a world of possibilities for personal and professional growth.
