How to Run a Podcast

You may wonder how to run a podcast. Jody Maberry shares with us insights on how he has eight active podcasts at the time of this recording.

The key is having a routine that works. It has to be fluid enough to allow you to live life, and structured enough to so that you’re meeting your deadlines and delivering a quality product to your consumers. Sounds a lot like being a small business owner, right?

For Jody Maberry, it’s a passion and a business.

On Being a Small Business Owner

We tend to think that the life of a businessman is all about all work and no play. Many business owners, especially entrepreneurs, will tell you that there are definitely seasons where you need to dig deep and hustle.

The past three years have shown Jody the importance of also taking a break. We are not meant to be in “hustle mode” all the time.

It is even described in the Bible we are to work for six days and rest on the seventh. Whether we take that literally or not, we can at least agree we have periods for work and periods of rest. If we are to succeed in being a small business owner, we have to include rest as part of our plan.

If you’re living the life of a business owner or entrepreneur, or you hope to do so one day, listen to this episode and share it with someone you feel would get inspiration out of it.
