Seeing as it’s a new year, with many of you planning on 2017 being the year you start your podcast, I thought there is no better time than now to create a podcast episode that’s all about starting a podcast.

So that’s what we’re exploring in today’s episode – the 14 things you must do before you start a podcast.

My aim here is to give you the very basic nuts and bolts of what you need to start a podcast. The things you really MUST have. If your head is swimming with all-the-podcast-things, don’t stress. In this episode, I’m going to break it down simply for you, into 14 steps.

To complement this episode, I’ve also created a free downloadable quick starter pack to help you apply everything I’m sharing here.

The pack includes:

// A quick-starter guide containing everything discussed in this episode
// A complete list of software and equipment you’ll need in your podcasting toolkit
// A 14-step quick-starter interactive checklist so you can easily keep track of what you need to do to get your podcast up and running
// An episode publishing interactive checklist outlining the steps required to publish your first podcast episode
// Instructions on how to invite guests onto your podcast
// 3 done-for-you email scripts for inviting guests onto your show

You can download your podcast starter pack from by clicking on the graphic below.
