It's been an incredible journey developing, producing and marketing the Spartan Up! Podcast. From the first day when Spartan founder and CEO Joe Desena asked me about getting a podcast up and running. We had been working together promoting his book "Spartan Up!" and he had done quite a few quest appearances. Over the last 6 months the concept has grown exponentially. We've shot over 130 interviews with amazing people all over the world, developed a panel to introduce and discuss the interviews, and set up a web site with lessons and notes from each panel member to help the audience get the most out of each episode.
One of the things I've learned in this process is that rankings on iTunes are constantly fluctuating. But we had a great week for the show last week, and I figure we ought to pause and celebrate it. We hit #1 in Careers, #4 in all business shows, and ranked #35 out of ALL podcasts in all categories. Ok, now back to work.
On March 27th I was envious of the "pause" to reassess and learn I kept hearing about. I was fortunate enough to still be working, so I committed to a more active blog. This is my chance to think out loud about podcasting, messaging, story, nature, family and life.
