Hello new friends,

My origin story is:

  • I started a financial wellness coaching business after my wife and I got out of debt in 2007
  • For 10 years I worked on building the business through blogging, webinars, and launching a podcast
  • In 2015 I left a salaried day-job in 2015 to focus all my energy on it
  • The business did not grow as I had expected, so I had extra time on my hands to do freelance work
  • A couple well-known financial bloggers wanted to start podcast but didn’t want to do the production. They said, “Steve, we just want to hit record. Would you do the rest”. Absolutely!
  • As soon as the FinCon community (FinCon is an annual conference/expo for people in the money & media niche) realized you could offload the podcast production to someone else, my plate started filling up
  • So my side-hustle that started in January 2016 exploded into my new career in only 6-months.

I had to give up my business, my podcast, and what I thought was my calling for what has become my true mission: Podcast production for indie podcasters in the financial genre.

My home base is at http://SteveStewart.me where you can schedule a call, learn how to use Audacity like an expert, and find a link to my vibrant Podcast Editor’s FB group.

It’s great to meet you all!

Hi all. Ravi has inspired me to start a podcast, so I chose one of my passions: BEER!

Following his suggestions, I’ve uploaded my first podcast interview (which I conducted yesterday) to Libsyn. I don’t have my website for this project ready yet, but I would appreciate any comments on the audio production. I added the intro, outro and music in Camtasia, btw.

Here’s the Libsyn link: http://directory.libsyn.com/episode/index/id/6369154

Thanks!

Hi @RaviJayagopal - a big thank you for having me here! :grinning:

Greetings everyone!

My name’s Rick Nuske, and I’m the host of the popular My Future Business Show.

My%20Future%20Business%20Logo

As a long-term DAP supporter [from the very early days], I want to take this opportunity to share how lucky I feel to have found both Veena and Ravi.

Fast forward to 2018, and it’s no surprise to see how incredibly powerful DAP [and the entire suite of products and services] has become.

Not only are Ravi and Veena incredibly skillful, to the point where I often scratch my head wondering how they do it :thinking: , I’ve found they are also very kind and work hard to help their community succeed.

So, with that being said, becoming part of this community forum was a no-brainer as I want to be part of what is going to become a solid resource for those looking to improve their knowledge and understanding.

I’m always online, and I welcome any interaction that serves you.

Regards

Rick Nuske

Hi all and thanks Ravi for the invite to join your community!

I’ve been a DAP / SPC support few a few years now, all starting as I embarked on a side hustle to build a membership website to support some of my piano students!

Piano however has been a bit of a side hustle for me and was actually my first foray into Online business.

My main career however has been in the IT field, beginning as far back as the early 90’s. Right now I hold a full time role as production systems infrastructure co-ordinator for a large global mining company - essentially I work in a team of three managing approx 1500+ production criticalservers scattered across various iron ore mine sites located in the north of Western Australia.

As it turned out I began to be contacted by people who liked the membership website I had build for my piano site and wanted me to help them build their own. So I have begun leveraging my IT skills to this end and currently assist selected clients to build membership sites on very specific wordpress based technology stack that includes DAP through my website at membershipwebsitehelp.com

My other interests are crypto currency and in specific XRP. This new asset class isn’t going away and XRP’s utility particularly in the space of cross border foreign exchange and remittance payments. This has been incredible to watch over the past 12 months and might just replace SWIFT. But I digress… I could talk XRP non stop! I have just in the last couple of weeks build a fledgling site called daxrp.com where I intend to build a membership site to teach people how to safely buy, sell, and hold the XRP crypto currency safely.

In summary you could say I’m an IT geek at heart and love playing with tech! My wife is the total opposite - which is probably a good thing. Keeps me balanced… :slight_smile:

I’m very responsive online and always happy to chat!

Regards,
Nino Alves.

Hello everybody and thank you very much Ravi for this initiative.

I have been very sad this last years without a "nice professional forum" where get in touch all the DAPPERs and PODCASTERs.

These last years I have been working in developing collective intelligence in groups and communities. Many are trying to do this with Social Networks like Facebook or Linkedin. I don’t believe in it.

These tools don’t give enough structure and are not build for this, but for generating business to their manufacturer.

I am very happy to your election of DISCOURSE for this communities, and I am also happy to join it from the beginning and see how it develop and grow.

English is not my first language then I may have some difficulties to express ideas, so patience if there are some misunderstood.

On the other side, I speak natively Spanish and French, if someone need any help on this, count on me.

My passion and what I am working to develop is “how building virtual communities can change your way of live and improve your quality of life”.

I still haven’t start the podcast project, but seeing all your projects is going to be a nice pushup.

Thanks again Ravi for this evolution, and just would like to know ¿When would you use this technology and method for DAP, WCP support? :wink:

Ravi thanks for the invite and hello everyone

I’m Michael, I practice acupuncture and Chinese medicine and about four years ago I started up a podcast that was aimed at the general public.

Really, it started as an experiment. I’d successfully blogged my way to pretty full practice and then met @SteveStewartMe who when I asked “why should I bother with a podcast when I have a darned good website that makes my phone ring every week with new patients?”

He said this,“The people that would listen to your podcast are not the same as those that would read your website.” WOW That got my attention.

Still, rather than do a podcast that focused on me (I’m an introvert) I did a podcast as a service to the community. I decided to invite other practitioners, those skilled and seasoned enough that they could talk Chinese medicine in every day English. So if people were thinking of maybe using this alternative, they could learn how it would be helpful for them.

I learned something surprising in the course of doing www.everydayacupuncturepodcast.com…practitioners were listening too. And they liked it. I thought it would too back for practitioners but they were loving it.

How strange… I did not make it for them. But this gave me the idea to take what I was already doing and create www.qiological.com where we could go deep and geeky into the medicine.

Long story, short. A niche podcast like this draws sponsorship. Which allowed me to go to a weekly publishing schedule.

I recently closed down everyday acupuncture podcast so I could devote all my podcasting time to qiological. And recently added a membership section so listeners can support the show if so feel inclined and there is some special content there just for them (including a mini-series on marketing)

Looking forward to hanging out with y’all here and getting our entrepreneur mojo going

Hi everyone! I live in Safety Harbor, Florida where I run my computer services business. I repair client computers all over the US using remote access.

I do two podcasts:

For over 6 years I’ve been doing the Computer Tutor podcast - ComputerTutorFlorida.com - each episode is some type of computer tip or trick, and everything is explained in regular English (no “geek speak”). My goal is for your reaction to be, “Wow, I didn’t know I could do that!”. I mainly use this show as an added way to market my computer services.

My second podcast I started a few months ago, and it’s called What Was That Like - WhatWasThatLike.com. On each episode I interview a regular person who has been through an extremely unusual situation. Some episodes so far:

  • Jennifer caused a fatal accident
  • Luke got caught smuggling cocaine
  • Mark gave his kidney to a stranger
  • Josh had his leg amputated
  • Kami survived a mass shooting
  • Brett proposed in court
  • Jeremy was bitten by a rattlesnake

If you’ve gone through something as extreme as some of those situations, I’d like to talk to you about telling your story on my podcast. Disclaimer though - I’m very selective about guests, so don’t take it personally if your story is not a good fit for the show.

No monetization for this show yet, as I’m still building my audience. But people are finding it and telling me the stories are really interesting.

Looking forward to interacting with this community!

Ravi, This is a lovely initiative. Thank you. I know it will be a win-win for everyone concerned.

My name is Dhiren. I live in Munich though originally from India.

My specialisation way back in 1985 was in Marketing and along the way, I reinvented myself to be a Digital Strategist and Business Coach to SMB owners.

As a digital strategy consultant, I help my clients create innovative blue ocean products that are designed to scale exponentially and are “baked” to spread with minimal marketing spend. I dont have a website but some original articles and cases are on my LinkedIn profile.

In recent years my interest in neuroscience and the art of living to the full potential of our virtually unused brains have grown. I call this “creating your personal strategy” which is as essential to business owners as creating a business strategy.

One builds on the other.

I plan to start creating a membership site with videos aimed at students and adult learners who want to maximise their potential.

I know I will be in the best environment here to learn and thrive.

Warm regards to all.
