Q & A with Val from Inspiration with Val
When did you start podcasting?
I started podcasting mid-December 2013.
Why did you start podcasting, and what’s your show about?
I LOVED podcasts for a long time before I started my own – listening to podcasts truly changed my life!!! And I wanted to create a show that I would want to listen to.
Essentially I interview inspiring individuals from all walks of life, ranging from millionaire entrepreneurs to cancer survivors to award winning authors, pro athletes, and more.
I also have solo episodes where I talk about tips and strategies that I have used with clients in my role as a therapist and now as a life coach. I believe that inspiration can be found in various different places, and I feel so honored to be able to speak to my inspirational guests!
What’s your podcasting set-up? Hardware, software, CMS, etc.
I use E-cam call recorder for my Skype audio interviews, and I edit in Garage Band on my MacBook Air.
How have you promoted your podcast?
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
I wasted a lot of time editing, when I now know you don’t have to cut out all of the “ums” that you and your guest say. Now I don’t edit at all, and it’s a huge time saver 🙂
We all need a little inspiration here and there no? It’d be nice to have Val help out when those dreaded times come around so subscribe!.
