Do you want to start a podcast and build your personal and professional brand, but find yourself hesitating to take that crucial first step? 😅


I understand the fears and doubts that can hold us back from pursuing our podcasting dreams. That's why, as the host of How to Podcast from Home, I want to share my own experiences and insights to inspire and guide you in starting your podcast before you feel completely ready.


Hi, I’m Jamie Kennedy, the Executive Podcast Producer at Brave Moon Podcasts and I help health and fitness professionals build successful podcasts.


In this episode (and article!), we'll dive into the psychology, practical tools, and strategies that will empower you to overcome obstacles and embrace the journey of podcasting.
