Have you ever wondered what it takes to create, launch, and maintain a hit podcast? As a listener, it appears as though a couple of people set up some microphones, have a chat, and by that process, an episode is effortlessly created. I remember starting my show, thinking “ I know how to find and talk to interesting people. I’ll buy some recording gear, send out a few guest request emails, and I’ll be a podcaster”. Little did I know that creating a show, and putting it out consistently requires a seemingly endless series of tasks, many of which can be extremely time-consuming, not to mention expensive.

In this episode, we take a slight departure from our usual format and present a behind the scenes look into the whole process of creating and hosting a podcast. Our guests Jesse Chappus and Marni Wasserman are the creators of one of the top health podcasts in the world- The Ultimate Health Podcast. After only three years in the game, they have turned their passion into a thriving business that has become not only rewarding to them personally but also financially. What makes their story genuinely inspiring though, is that neither of them had any experience in media or broadcasting before launching their show. It’s also worth noting that they are not only co-hosts of the podcast, but also a happily married couple.

Jesse and Marni take us along with them through the history of their health and healing journeys, as well as precisely how they continue to grow their audience and strengthen their relationship and financial independence at the same time.

If you are a fan of podcasts or have ever dreamed of starting your own, this is the show for you. Having my podcast has been a dream come true, but it has not been without struggle. Along with Jesse and Marni, I reveal in this episode the rewards and challenges we've experienced, and precisely what to expect if you someday take to the mic and create your own show. As rewarding as it is, it's not for the faint of heart.

As of today my show has been downloaded 959,314 times. My goal is to reach 1M downloads by New Years Eve 2017. Would you be willing to help? All you have to do is share this episode with one friend, and ask them to do the same. Ease breezy.

Here’s to an amazing year, and and even better one to come.
