While I was writing my book, Discovering My Scars, I started listening to the Morgan James Radio Podcast. The show hosts interview many authors about their journey and share advice. Along with learning from the show, Morgan James Publishing (MJP) was the company I was considering to publish my book. The CEO, David Hancock, is one of the hosts of the podcast and listening helped me get to know him and his company. That connection is what ultimately led me to choosing MJP to publish Discovering My Scars.
That got me thinking about the power of podcasting and push me to start my own podcast! Not everyone knows the ends and outs of a podcast so I thought I'd do a short primer about podcasts as a way of introducing you to mine.
In the Fall of 2018, I finally got up the courage to ask my friend Beth Demme something I had been wanting to ask her for months.
As I wrote my book, Discovering my Scars, I started to think of ways to expand on the book and topics inside. The idea of a podcast sat in my head for a while, but I knew I could not do it alone. Only one name came to mind as my co-host.
The morning I scheduled to meet with Beth I was so nervous. I felt silly expecting this professional woman to say, “Sure, I’ll give up my limited time and record a podcast with you.”
I psyched myself out a few times, but finally quieted my own thoughts and prayed about what to say. God simply told me to ask. To put my dream out there, and she could decide, yes or no, if she wanted to be a part of it.
