5 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Started A Podcast

Eleanor Beaton

With over 500 episodes and close to two million downloads under her belt, Eleanor has learned some major lessons about how to create, launch, and sustain a podcast that brings a financial return. 

After multiple iterations of her podcast and 18 months of producing Anchored Intelligence, Eleanor is closing the door on this amazing chapter in honor of a new start. In light of a brand new show for women founders coming to you next week, she’s here to share five things she’s learned as a content creator that you can use as an anchor if you’re considering starting a podcast or already have one in the works.

Join Eleanor this week as she breaks down exactly what she would do if she were starting a podcast from scratch again. You’ll learn why you shouldn’t worry about audience growth, what you should focus on instead, and the most important type of content you want to create if you want your show to make you money.
