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.

Athena now hosts the Alter Ego Podcast, where she and a new guest each week explore the boundaries of self expression and awareness.

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.

You don’t have to do this podcasting gig alone.   ABOUT ELSIE ESCOBAR I work in the cross-section of technology, digital media & holistic living with a heavy bias on podcast strategy and creative use of audio.  As a podcaster since 2006, I was one of the first female *indie* podcasters using audio to teach yoga. 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.
