We see some of our favorite podcasters producing weekly content and almost take for granted how hard they must work to get it all done week after week, year after year. It's not until we start our own podcast that we then realize how much time it takes to really produce a quality show. For the outside world trying to look in, it might seem that these pros have unlimited time, unlimited staff, and no families.
Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is these highly-driven people take afternoon naps and get drunk before noon, but how are they able to produce consistently without life getting in the way?
Podcasters Make Time to Podcast
Just like professional writers and musicians, podcasters have time carved out in their calender to focus exclusively on their podcast content and they treat this time like an important dentist or doctor appointment. They don't let anything get in the way of their artistic time.
They Plan Ahead
We get a lot more done when we have similar tasks grouped together. The moment the brain gets into a groove, one task after another seems to fly by quickly. Podcasters and successful entrepreneurs also understand that life has a way of stabbing you in the back and the best-laid plans of mice and men often go for a smoke and never come back. This is why planning ahead and creating extra ready-to-publish content is often a life saver for podcasters. Create your podcast content in bulk. It will be easier than trying to keep up with the weekly struggles of life.

Until next time,
Podcasting is fun. It’s also hard work. Not surprising that since the dawn of this medium, podcasters have been crafting ways to make the fun pay off. Traditional advertising methods work for a select few - an estimated 0.05% of podcasters monetize their show via direct sponsorship - and finding vertical opportunities by leveraging your own business works for others. But what about those who neither have a large online listenership nor a business directly tied to their podcast?
