Athena Rosette is the creator of the Alter Ego Podcast. Athena has been taking on Alter Egos in her travels, performance life as a Brazilian Samba Performer, and in personal realms. She noticed that these forms of herself all gave her certain abilities and awarenesses she hadn’t yet accessed within her normal state, and quickly led to improved health, happiness, and overall satisfaction in her life. Eventually, the lines began to blur as she took ownership of these different personas. Athena now hosts the Alter Ego Podcast, where she and a new guest each week explore the boundaries of self expression and awareness. In this interview we explore: + The trap of wanting our first episodes to be ‘perfect’ and why authenticity is WAY more impactful with your audience than perfection. + Finding your ‘podcaster alter ego’ to support you on the journey + Really useful tips for protecting the privacy and anonymity of guests who are sharing confidential or very private information on your show.   RESOURCES + Zoom H4N Recorder + VOX Voice Modulating Software + Audio Technica ATR-2100 Microphone + Libsyn free podcast hosting – head to libsyn.com and add ALANA in the promo field to receive free hosting for the rest of this month and all of next month.   ABOUT ATHENA ROSETTE Athena Rosette is the creator of the Alter Ego Podcast.

Back in 2016, I decided to take a leap. I’d been podcasting for over a year and absolutely adored it. What I wasn’t adoring was my current job. So I quit my job and decided to have a go at turning my podcasting passion into a business. I spent three months in my creative cave, writing the Ignite: Podcasting for Changemakers program. Then, towards the end of 2016, I launched the program and myself as a women’s podcast mentor into the world. Nine months on, my business is gaining traction and momentum, most of which I owe to podcasting. As the doors to Ignite have reopened again, I felt now was a great time to share more of my story with you. I invited my good friend, Nicole Mathieson onto the show to pepper me with questions about my journey from a blogger to a podcaster to creating an online business. We explore: + My foray into the online world as a blogger. + What happened when I switched from blogging to podcasting (hint: things exploded!) + How I turned my podcast into an online business and how podcasting has continually facilitated the growth of my business. + Why I created Ignite: Podcasting for Changemakers and what you can expect when you join the program.   RESOURCES + Ignite: Podcasting for Changemakers – the doors to Ignite: Podcasting for Changemakers are now open. + Join the Podcast With Heart Facebook group, a community of vibrant women podcasters. Introduce yourself, ask questions and get the help and support you need. You don’t have to do this podcasting gig alone.   ABOUT ALANA HELBIG Alana Helbig is a podcast mentor, creator of the online program Ignite: Podcasting for Changemakers and hhost of the podcasts Untangled, Podcast with Heart and She Makes Magic.

“I started to play with the sound of myself and step outside of it. I didn’t judge it as much as grow it, expand on it, colour it a lot more than I was.” Elsie Escobar starting podcasting in 2006 when she created Elsie’s Yoga Class in which she began sharing audio recordings of her live yoga classes. That podcast has now been downloaded over 4 million times. But the story doesn’t stop here. Elsie’s obsession with podcasting then got her a job working with Libsyn, the leading podcast host and distribution network. She’s the co-host and producer of The Feed: The Official Libsyn podcast. She also co-runs the She Podcasts Facebook group the largest community for women in podcasting and co-hosts the She Podcasts podcast. Yup. This woman lives and breathes podcasting. In this episode, Elsie and I explore: + All the incredible opportunities presented to Elsie since she began her podcasting journey. + Self-sabotage, self-criticism and giving yourself time to get better at the podcasting process. + The most common fear that stops women from getting started. + Becoming okay with the sound of your voice. + Being yourself behind the microphone.   RESOURCES + Elsie’s Yoga Class + She Podcasts free Facebook group + Podcast Quick Starter Pack – download your free podcast quick starter pack containing a podcast guide, interactive checklists and done-for-you email scripts. + Join the Podcast With Heart Facebook group, a community of vibrant women podcasters.

Elsie’s Yoga Class has not been downloaded over 4 million times! I’m currently the only female pundit in the podcasting space with expert insight into indie podcasters’ impact, influence, and power.  My obsession for podcasting got me a job working with Libsyn, the leading podcast host and distribution network created in 2004.  I’ve been there since 2007 and have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of podcasters, giving them tools for better production, educating them in the space, as well as cultivating a strongly engaged community through The Feed: The Official Libsyn podcast which I both co-host and produce. The Feed’s sole focus is keeping people podcasting. I also co-run the largest community for women in podcasting with a corresponding podcast (of course) called She Podcasts. Our sole mission is to empower women to continue to share their voices while creating a safe community of podcasting education and support.

“I am always thinking how can I add value? How can I add so much value that people want to listen to the podcast, they want to support it, they want to help with its growth, they want to share it? That, for me, is a really key point.” After working in finance for 8 years, Sarah Williams quit her city job and spent 18 months travelling the world, climbing Kilimanjaro, backpacking around South America and doing a ski season. She used this time to help her to decide what she wanted to do with her life. On her return, she decided she wanted to motivate and inspire young girls. She developed Tough Girl Challenges and began speaking at local schools to girls about their goals and plans for the future. Shockingly, she discovered many of the girls didn’t have any goals, most of them not being exposed to inspirational female role models. In August 2015 Sarah launched the Tough Girl Podcast where she interviews inspirational female explorers, adventurers, athletes and everyday women who have overcome great challenges. In this interview Sarah and I explore: + How Sarah grew her following to 800+ women in her Tough Girl Tribe Facebook group and 240,000 downloads. + The systems and processes Sarah has in place for time management, productivity and promotion. + How Sarah monetises her podcast. + The opportunities and growth gifted to her through her podcast.   RESOURCES + The Tough Girl Podcast Patreon page + The Tough Girl Tribe Facebook group + She Podcasts free Facebook group + Podcast Quick Starter Pack – download your free podcast quick starter pack containing a podcast guide, interactive checklists and done-for-you email scripts. + Join the FREE Podcast With Heart Facebook group, a community of vibrant women podcasters.

“It’s important for women because culturally and historically speaking, we’ve been repressed and, until just recently, we haven’t really had a voice. Now we’re really speaking up and sharing our experience of what it’s like to be in a world ruled by men… It’s such a breath of fresh air to have the freedom to speak our experience of life and bring that conversation into the world for everybody to listen to.” Danielle Polgar, M.A. is an Astrological Counselor, light-seeker, and Saturn Return Specialist. She shares her practical, yet spiritually-infused interpretations of the sacred language of astrology with women seeking radical honesty, self-awareness, and deep transformation.

Tahlee Rouillon is a music composer extraordinaire at Sonesence. She offers peace seekers an easy way to achieve instant calm with a sonic shortcut called meditones. She also creates bespoke meditation music for other wellness entrepreneurs. I’ve invited Tahlee to chat with us about sound quality in our podcast recordings. I know sound quality has always been a struggle for me. There’s a LOT of technical babble out there and it’s really hard to know what’s important and what’s not so important in the land of sound. Because Tahlee works with women to create beautiful and professionally produced spoken-word meditations, I knew she’d have some really useful tips for getting the best sound quality for our recordings. Listen in as Tahlee and I explore 9 really simple tips for creating podcast sound-quality awesomeness. In this episode we discuss: + Why it’s so important for your business to invest in a good quality microphone. + Tahlee’s personal microphone and post-editing software recommendations. + The dreaded “Pop” and what you can do about them. + Why a good set of headphones is paramount during the recording and post-editing processes. + Why creating a great quality sound recording is going to save you time and create an awesome final-end product. + Short cuts and useful tricks to know about during post-editing. + What to do if you hate the sound of your own voice. In this episode, Tahlee and I talk quite a lot about the importance of getting a great sound quality recording up front. Fundamental to this, is getting the volume levels correct for both you and your guest at the time of recording. To help you achieve this, I've created a free cheat sheet which steps you through exactly how to check and adjust volume levels during an interview. This is SUPER simple but something I've found most women, when first starting out, don't realise it's something they can and should do (I didn't realise it either!). I've created cheat sheets for both Ecamm Call recorder users and Pamela for Skype users.

Today we're going to have a look at the 5 common mistakes new podcasters make. I started podcasting back in May 2015. I started podcasting with my sister and we created a podcast called She Makes Magic. Back then, podcasting wasn't a big thing. Sure it had been around for many years but in our realm – the realm of women bloggers and the women blogosphere – podcasting wasn't that prevalent. In my blogging group, for example, I only knew one or two other women, out of a thousand women in the group who had a podcast. It wasn't very common. During that time, and particularly this year, I've watched as podcasting has become more and more popular. I've seen lots of other women create successful and some not-so-successful podcasts. I've also been fortunate enough to start coaching other women on how to create a successful podcast. From doing a bit of an audit of the female podcasting landscape, there are a few very common mistakes I see women podcasters making again and again, particularly when they are first starting out. These are really simple things that can be prevented and that can make the entire process more enjoyable and also make your reach and impact much more effective. I'm going to take you through five of the most common mistakes today. If you're thinking about starting a podcast then perhaps you can learn from these. If you are already podcasting, most of these tips will still be relevant to you and you can start applying them straight away.

Today’s episode is a little different and one very close to my heart. I’ve asked my good friend, Nicole Mathieson to play host this week and ask me ALL the questions about my podcasting journey. This is a story I’ve never really shared before and I thought it was about time I did. Together, we look back on the past 18 months of me being behind the podcast mic. Doing this interview really helped me to reflect on just how far I’ve come. Because, things have been pretty busy lately and, if I’m truly honest, I’ve been pretty hard on myself. There has been a LOT of negative self-talk. This conversation with Nicole pulled me back into the joy of my work (and into the joy I feel when I podcast). I hope you feel my joy vibrating out to you as you listen. In this episode, Nicole and I explore: + How the ideas for my three podcasts – She Makes Magic, Untangled and Podcast with Heart – came about. + Why showing up vulnerably on my podcasts was the catalyst for creating a hugely engaged community. + Why women are bringing a whole new, exciting aspect to the podcasting realm. + The two hardest parts about getting started on my journey – hello technical confusion and the dreaded FEAR monster. + Why my deep wound and story of “I have nothing to offer” actually became my super-power during the early days of podcasting. + Why treating your podcast like a paid product is SO important. + What to do if you really, really want to start a podcast but are too afraid. + And I also spill the beans on my true podcast statistics.
