I receive emails all the time from listeners listing their questions, concerns, and hesitations about starting a podcast management business. Some people worry about taking on a position of authority where they’re making recommendations and guiding people. Others are concerned about their technological knowledge in this rapidly growing industry. Whatever your hesitation is, keep in mind that you can learn what you don’t know. But if you don’t enjoy the process of learning or the essence of the job itself, podcast management isn’t going to be right for you.

I’ll be going over the nuts and bolts of the job itself, the day-to-day reality, and what you need to be successful. It’s my hope that giving you these details up front will help you make an informed choice about joining this profession.
