My Lastest Endeavor…
It’s been 5 months since my last blog post and I’ve been busy, but I can’t say that I’ve been as productive as I would have liked… but in the past month or so it has all started to come together.
A New Project
Earlier in the year – about the same time that I wrote my last blog post – I had signed up for a podcasting course that David Ralph (JoinUpDots Podcast) was teaching. It was a great course and there were about 4 other people in the course with me and we all became friends. I also should say that I am not the only one who hasn’t gotten their podcast up and running.
There have been a couple of others who have successfully launched and I was so envious of their success. It did however give me a lot of impetus to get myself going again.
That’s when I decided that if I really wanted to create a podcast then I needed to do it and get some help putting it all together. I already had a great podcasting teacher (David Ralph) and I had a good group of Internet Marketers to call on for help (NAMS Insiders group) so I really had no excuse except my own lack of self-confidence.
To decide on my podcasting subject I thought a lot about what subject:
- I am very passionate about
- I wouldn’t mind spending a lot of time learning even more about
- I would enjoy sharing what I have learned through my own experience and life
What I came up with was health & wellness, for me and for others, and especially for:
- older people like me (over 50)
- women especially but men could also profit the info
- people who like to eat naturally, organically, and simply
- those who like to exercise their bodies and their brains
Picking the Name & Getting the Logo
After those decisions I came up with the name Healthy Tips After 50 – looked to see if the url was available, which it was, so I grabbed it and got serious about making it all happen.
I went out to Fiverr and got a Podcast/iTunes cover logo made which you can see here to the left…

And then I had to start doing the nuts and bolts of making a podcast.
So, I have been busy buying and setting up my home recording equipment on the corner of my desk in my study.
I have recorded enough of the bits and pieces to put together at least 3 full podcasts so far.
I have also been working on my website to get the framework together:
- New Autoresponder (Infusionsoft)
- Podcast Player plugin
- Signed up for a 3 day NAMS Bootcamp to learn how to create the best sales/lead pages and email follow-ups for a podcasting business
Setting My Goals
A month from now I will have no excuse if I don’t have everything launched and going! I am so excited and so looking forward to being a working, productive, and very successful podcaster !!!
You will be able to find my Healthy Tips After 50 podcast in all of the usual places where podcasts hang out – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. In addition, you will be able to go to the website I’m creating for it at HealthyTipsAfter50.com.
The website will have a separate page for each of the podcasts there will be a podcast player (including MP3 download), show notes, links to products and/or subjects mentioned in the podcasts, and transcripts.
I am also going to set up a FB Page where I will also post the podcast itself and it will also be a good place to stay in touch and comment on them.
Your Role in Helping Me
If you want to know more and especially if you want to be notified when the launch date is set be sure that you are subscribed to this blog because I will be announcing it here first!!
Also, leave a comment below with any health topics you’d like to hear me talk about! I’m always looking for more topics! There will also be a tip at the end of each podcast that you’ll find valuable!
