Many people take for granted — or assume — that their audiences have all their motor skills and physical faculties. For instance, they can see the video or hear the audio, etc. However, Matt Cox is a determined young man who is visually impaired (i.e., legally blind), but he is a man with a “vision” and objective. Not only does he consume audio podcasts since 2007, but he has also seen success in Corporate America with his career; and he also is in his 6th year as a podcaster.
And in our audio episode, you will hear the interview with him about his current entry as a part-time entrepreneur in the area of podcasting, with a future in publishing.
His podcast show, called BRUNCH WITH THE BRITS, is available for free subscription on iTunes(R). What is remarkable is that he has over 322 episodes of this series.
In addition to getting a Bachelor or Arts degree in Communication, he also spent several years in the Peace Corps and served in Morocco. He has also worked in the public sector, but he has really found his home and enjoyment in his work with Marriott Hotel Reservations.
As you will hear in this inspiring audio episode, his future plans include publication of audio books for niche audiences (such as aficionados of old time radio shows, and people with disabilities), as well as other types of publications on the Internet. He also plans to create a podcast network with various podcast shows in the near future.
However, he plans to maintain his part-time entrepreneurship with the “value-for-value” model in his podcasts while continuing his full-time success at Marriott.
Thus, as a part-time solo-preneur (with an administrative assistant who also provides free technical support), it appears that Matt Cox has found a formula that works in the area of New Media, while he maintains his day-job. In fact, up until this year, his podcast did not cost anything. Right now, he is “bootstrapping” his part-time enterprise as a solo-preneur.
His current plans for the near future include the possibility of attending his first NMX (New Media Expo), alongside with the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) event in Las Vegas in April of 2015 — however, if there is a schedule conflict, his employment will ALWAYS take precedence. If and when he does attend the activities of NMX, he will be a very active participant for the awards and the training and education for podcasting and New Media.
