Starting a podcast is a great way to build new relationships, position yourself as a thought leader, and get more awareness in a fun & engaging way.

Someone once said to me, "Rob, if you ever hope to get paid to do what you love then you better be doing it already."
I wanted to get paid to talk about sports for a living so I taught myself how to podcast.
This was back in 2012. Fast forward to now and my love of podcasting has exploded.
I currently host four podcasts, I've published over 600 podcasts episodes generating over 250,000 downloads, and even had my Sports Marketing Huddle podcast implemented in the course curriculum at four universities as a new way to teach marketing to students.
Throughout my podcasting journey I’ve learned an incredible amount on what it takes to launch, host, and market a podcast, and repeatedly do so with excellence.
I didn't have help when I started my podcasting journey and I learned the hard way. The amount of hours I spent Googling and YouTubing was frustrating, uncertain, and wasted a ton of time.
And that’s why I created Launching Podcasts, to help aspiring podcasters speed up their journey and easily launch a podcast. That way you can grow your brand, make new connections, and have your voice heard.
The first video is on me! Watch Day 1 of this course which gives an overview of what to expect.
There are 26 more video lessons.
“Without Rob's expertise and guidance our podcast would not have been possible. If you want to save yourself a lot of time, money, and headaches you found your guy!”

"It was such a good experience. The process was really simple, and it's been one of the best things I've ever done."

HOW LONG WILL THE COURSE TAKE TO COMPLETE?
There are 27 videos ranging from 1 minute to 9 minutes, with action items at the end of each one. The course is completely self-paced and can be done in as little as 30 days. I estimate most people who are committed will complete it in 30 - 60 days (but you can take as long as you'd like.)
HOW LONG WILL THE ACTION ITEMS TAKE TO COMPLETE AFTER EACH VIDEO?
You can estimate it'll take anywhere from 15 minutes to 1+ hours to complete the action items for each day. My goal is to keep you on easy street so some days will be super light, other days will have more activity. Luckily it's all fun stuff!
WHAT EQUIPMENT WILL I NEED TO COMPLETE THE COURSE?
All you will need to take the course is a computer. Once we start making progress on your podcast I'll share the equipment options I recommend you buy or use (ex. microphone, recording, editing.) The equipment recommendations work for budgets of all levels.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE ACCESS TO THE COURSE?
You'll get lifetime access to Launching Podcasts and any future content I add to the course.
WHAT IF I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THE COURSE?
There is a 14-day, 100% money back guarantee. If you are not happy with the course for any reason within the first two weeks, just let me know and I'll refund your money. (I would hate to see you go, as would all your future fans.)
