podcast_reporter_albumartwork1400

This episode is a discussion about a blog post from the Solo-E.com sites. The author of the blog post is Monica Shah, and the title of the post is:  What To Do When Your Passion Has Become Your Prison — Three Steps to Ignite Your Dreams.

In addition to the main themes of this blog post, we also included a couple of cases-in-point of our prior businesses suffered from the situation when the passion became a pain, and almost a prison.

Now, the author of this blog brought out 3 steps to ignite your dreams:

“1. If you are struggling, then there is something that you just don’t understand.

2. Step into your fear.

3. Make Sure You’ve Got Someone Who is Willing to Take a Stand for You.”

[from the blog post by Monica Shah]

And, finally, we add our own categories from the last step — that of having a support person or support team. We include our categories of:

-1. The coach;

-2. The Mentor; and

-3. The Mastermind Group.

26- Other conferences for Podcasters- perspectives from Rob Walch

Most podcasters who consume the blogs and podcast episodes of other podcast shows are probably aware of the 2 big conferences in which Podcasters are involved — New Media Expo in Las Vegas (at www.NMXLive.com) and one specifically oriented to podcasters (and put on by podcasters), Podcast Movement.

This episode is an interview with Rob Walch of Libsyn.com which discusses the “other” conferences (some oriented to podcasters) in which podcasters can attend, present, learn and do some valuable networking.

Rob Walch, who is the vice-president of Podcaster Relations for Libsyn.com, is one early podcaster (producing content since 2004) that has attended every major single podcast and New Media conference since 2005. That is, he attended the Portable Media Expo in 2005, the Podcast and Portable Media Expo in 2006, the Podcast and New Media Expo in 2007, The New Media Expo in 2008, 2013, 2014 — as well as all the BlogWorld and New Media Expos up until 2012. He has also attended Podcamps in various locations, and he is the organizer of a Podcasters Meetup.

Rob’s good fortune currently is to represent Libsyn at these events, since he has a passion for the company and for his job — especially since he still continues to podcast with his shows of Tii (This week in iOS), The Feed and Podcast 411. In doing so, he has a perspective far beyond what most podcasters have, in that he has seen a variety of events that can benefit podcasters and others who are in the New Media space.

Rob Walch at media eventsIn particular, Rob has recently been to the LA Podfest (Podcast Festival in Los Angeles, California, which is held annually and usually in September) for the past several years. As you will hear in this audio episode, his schedule covers over seven events in 2014.

We also discover that Rob has attended and participated in more conferences that provide value to podcasters than just about anyone else in the podosphere.

In addition, we get his perspective about virtual podcaster conference events, about Podcamps as events for podcasters, about Meetups as local events, and about “other” conferences and events that provide value to podcasters.
