If you are thinking of making a change and charting your own course, this episode will inspire you. Episode 32 of The Positively Living Podcast is packed with practical tips and the encouragement you need to share your voice with the world! 

Today’s episode is a reminder of something I say frequently — everything is connected. People, experiences, purpose — all influence each other and the direction of your life. You’re about to hear a conversation that is a part cautionary tale, part entrepreneur’s manifesto on how to live fully and dream unceasingly, with a Podcasting 101 course tossed in.  If you are thinking of making a change and charting your own course, this episode will inspire you. If you are thinking of starting your own podcast, keep listening because this episode is packed with practical tips and the encouragement you need to share your voice with the world.

Alesia Galati runs a full-service podcast management agency. Meaning you record and her team does the rest. She helps business owners launch and maintains lead-generating podcasts. She lives in sunny North Carolina with her husband, two small boys, and a rescue pup. When she’s not working, you can find her either hiking, chasing her kids around, or watching the latest Star Wars with her husband.

Our conversation runs the gamut from practical to profound, which I thought might happen knowing Alesia as I do. She and I have been through many iterations of our businesses and have a similar sense of humor and quirkiness. She is truly authentic and I wanted to find a way to work with her. If that concept sounds familiar, it’s because you just heard about it on Episode 31 on Authenticity in Life and Business. Alesia and I were finally able to collaborate this year on my podcast. I knew I needed support to launch it the right way and just as I was looking to do so, she launched her podcast management agency. It was universal timing at its best and every tip she shares with you today is something I have tried successfully.

With a podcast, you are able to create a connection with your audience, because you are with them on their daily walks, while they’re cleaning dishes, walking the dog, or chasing their kids around. They might even be showering! Either way, it really does create this celebrity effect.

Alesia Galati

She has many resources about podcasting you can view on her site alesiagalati.com Today she shares the most important elements of starting a podcast. You need to know your audience, what you want to say, and what kind of podcast you want before you begin. The additional part that might surprise you is that once you’ve decided these and have your concepts down, the recording is NOT the next step…marketing is! Be sure to listen to that part as she explains the necessary steps to launch to celebrations instead of crickets.

If you’re thinking of launching a podcast, her tips are going to be incredibly helpful, as is her encouragement that the market isn’t really as saturated as you think. If you want to start one, we are both cheering you on. When you do it the right way, it will be a powerful medium to share your voice.

I loved this conversation for so many reasons, but what stands out for me is the discoveries we made about the impact of podcasting…the why behind what we do. The connections we make through podcasting are stronger than in writing. Writing and video have their place, of course, but there is a special combination that you are experiencing right now when you can hear the nuances in my voice and you’re listening to what I share while you actively participate in your own life…walking, driving, running errands, relaxing…even showering! Yes, that’s a thing. Most importantly, podcasting has been so popular because it bridges that gap between us. When we are isolated — which happened extensively in 2020 — we crave connection and company. Podcasting answers that need.
