Happy anniversary to the Moms with Dreams Show! I can’t believe it’s already been four years!

I feel like time has gone by so fast. So much has happened since I launched my show on May 18, 2015. When I made the decision to end my online radio show and start my podcast, I was clear on what I liked about podcasting – having flexibility to pre-record interviews, having my own platform to share my message, the freedom to call the shots and the ability to create a show that would live forever on Apple Podcasts, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, and other cool places where people can find me around the globe.

What I didn’t know was how much time and energy I would have to invest to launch my show and keep it going. The first year was tough running my podcast as a one-woman show. I spent a lot of time learning how to edit in Audacity and trying to find my rhythm as an interviewer and discover my voice as a podcaster.

Looking back, I realize how much I’ve grown over these past four years. I’ve gained new skills. I’ve met amazing women from all over the world and have made lifelong friends because of my podcast. I’m grateful for every tough lesson as it’s shaped me into the woman I am today.

In this episode, I share ten valuable lessons that I’ve learned as a podcaster. I hope that you’ll find value in these lessons and apply what fits in your life.

I also had fun recapping twenty of my favorite episodes. Honestly, the list was going to be much longer, but I had to cut it off in the interest of time.
