I was absolutely dancing-around-the-living-room chuffed and honoured to sit in the hosting chair of one of my FAVOURITE podcasts, the Biz Chix podcast, to interview host Natalie Eckdahl on her 3 year podcast anniversary. We dig into her biz and podcast journey – and it’s an epic journey to six figures and being recognised as Inc.com’s top 5 women podcasters for female entrepreneurs. Settle in!
Warning Empire Builders, shiz gonna get REAL today. I don’t know what happened but over the long weekend in January I took a walk on the beach and I don’t know about you, but the beach makes me so much more grounded and connected to the woo woo, vulnerable side of me.
So… what i wanted to do was share a bit of the story of why I started podcasting. I share this story a lot, but I share the edited version, and I wanted to give you the real behind the scenes look at my failings, flaws and fears.
I mean I’ve talked on the podcast before – particularly episode 37 – about what I’ve learned from podcasting but that’s the business stuff. And you know I love the business stuff.
If you love the business stuff, you should also check out my interview with Ronsley Vaz, founder of We Are Podcast in episode 57 about podcasting, and episode 61 where i share a whole lot of awesome content creation tips from We Are Podcast 2016.
But this episode is NOT one of those.
Because I’m on the beach it’s also a little bit windy at times, but I’ve listened back and the audio is not atrocious, so bear with me.
For now, let’s answer the questions WHY YOU? WHY NOW?
Wondering if podcasting is for you, and if it is how to actually grow a podcast? These are the questions I want to answer for you. If you’re podcasting or creating any kind of content, you’ll get ideas that you can apply to your business right now.
Second in our Startup with Style mini series is Ricki Vinci, a health and learning coach who has found her unique model of combining a background in medical science with
Ricki has combined her background in medical research with her skills as a health coach and her personal experience with health and wellness.
I have been so excited to share with you this mini-podcast series of episodes I lovingly call ‘Start-up with Style’. Candid interviews with wellness entrepreneurs who are in their start-up phase and are telling their start-up story as it happens. We rarely get to hear these stories – it’s usually successful entrepreneurs looking back through biased glasses at their early days of business. So, enjoy the generosity and honesty with which my guests open up!

I’m an ambitious person. Anyone who knows me will confirm that, and I make no apologies for it. I’m determined and driven, and I don’t let obstacles get in the way of getting where I want to be.
Having said that – I don’t always figure our the best way around those obstacles on my own.
In the very early stages of my career, I tried to solve the world’s problems on my own. Which worked up to a point. There came a time when I found myself asking someone more experienced than I how they would handle the situation I was in. I may not have always acted on their advice, but in some shape or form, the advice they gave me shaped my eventual course of action.
Fast forward 10 years and numerous promotions later and I now understand that what I was doing without realising it, was using a mentor.
