Podcast management businesses are so similar, yet so different from each other. I love how you can take your business and have it fit your own lifestyle. Today I’m talking to one of my Podcast Manager Program graduates, Kim Parkinson, all about that. We discuss Kim’s journey from craft store owner to podcast manager and everywhere in between. Kim walks us through how she got started working online, how she found podcast management, how she pulled from her past business experiences to build her podcast management business, and what her business looks like now. Kim shares how often she works, how she found her clients and what she is offering them.

Kim Parkinson is a crafty, geeky podcast producer, devoted to helping her clients turn their audio into a form of art. With her vast experience as a CEO and Business Owner, Web Developer, Social Media Manager, VA, Class Instructor, and even Television Host and Executive Producer, Kim started KP Creative Media and loves to help her clients craft the best podcast they can have.
