Welcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!

He’s the guy that puts together the Real Fast Results podcasts, as a matter of fact. He does the job beautifully and quickly, and he has some really great advice to share with everyone throughout this episode.
Promise: How to Tackle the Technology of Podcasting
Our big promise is, we’re going to help you face your fears and tackle the technology of podcasting. So many people put podcasting on this huge pedestal. They are like, “Oh, I could never do that.” And, it’s really not that big a deal. You’ve probably got content that’s been on your blog. It’s been in your newsletter and in your emails. Just turn around and put those into audio or video [format] and set off to the races.Remember that your podcast can always be edited. Click To Tweet
So many people think, “Oh, I’m going to sound stupid if I do this,” or “I’m really worried about sounding stupid.” It’s not radio. So, if you’re in the middle of a podcast, and all of the sudden you you sneeze, or you cough, or whatever you’re doing, or the dog barks–you can easily go and edit that out.
