Well, honestly, I don’t know. Trying to create a podcast – get the guest, interview the guest, edit the podcast, post to the website – as a one-man show, is a challenge. It’s not impossible. It’s just that I have lots of other things I can do, mainly ride my own horses.
I have people asking me to help them with their horses. While I’ve never thought of myself as a trainer, I’ve come to realize I have a good amount of knowledge, a lot of it gleaned from doing the podcast, that will help many novice horse owners. They are willing to pay for it. The podcast has not generated any income.
Oh, don’t give me that. It’s not all about the money. But, I’ve got to buy gas and tires for my truck. I’ve got to buy feed for my horses. There is a certain amount of satisfaction that comes from getting paid for the work you do. I realize I’m not the most charismatic podcast host and that is likely the reason it’s not been profitable. I’m semi-okay with that. I’ll keep working on my storytelling skills and I’m hopeful they will improve.
Meanwhile, I am paying to keep all the podcasts episodes available. You can still get them from iTunes and Stitcher.
And, if you have any suggestions, I’ll listen.
For the next few months, I’ll work on building a clientele and see how this horse training endeavor goes. If you need a good coach for your groundwork, or you have a problem with trailer loading, I’m your guy. Drop me a line.
