Welcome To The Podcast Business Academy
If you’ve landed on this page, it’s likely that you’ve already heard the news. Three years ago I started asking around to see who was using podcasting as a tool to effectively grow their business.
There were a lot of crickets out there at first. But it sent me on a journey to find people who actually got it. The people who were actually doing it the right way. I soon discovered there were a few who did.
They were real estate investors, consultants, attorneys, CEOs, coaches and a hand full of small business owners. These were the people who didn’t need to wait for the rest of the world to validate podcasting as a viable platform. They were quietly going about their business generating leads and closing deals.
There were a good number of us but there were a few problems…
- There wasn’t a place that we could call our own
- There wasn’t a place where we could connect with one another to share ideas, victories and struggles
- There wasn’t a place where we could all grow together
The Podcast Business Academy was born out of my frustration to find real answers and real people who were getting real results. Now, it’s here and I’m happy to say that we’re on to something that’s going to turn the entire industry on its head.
If you’re here (and the above sounds like you), I want to personally invite you to become a member of the world’s first mastermind solely dedicated growing businesses through podcasting.
That’s right. There ain’t nothing like it, baby!
There are a few things you need to know though…
This is NOT a place for wantrepreneurs, Internet get rich quick folks, or hobbyist!
This is an exclusive community for people with REAL businesses. And I’ve gone great lengths to ensure it stays that way. 😉
Assuming you make the cut, you’ll be part of an exclusive community of some of the best and brightest in the industry.
A Community of Like-Minded Peers
Masterminds are the key to growing your business. The Podcast Business Academy is a vetted group of podcasters who are operating real businesses. No wantrepreneurs allowed!
We are real CEOs, founders, and small business owners that are here to collaborate, learn and grow together. Our mission is to use podcasting as a channel for networking, lead generation and building authority in our businesses.
Limited Application Only Membership
All members must go through an application process and/or be personally interviewed before being considered for our community. We strive to only bring in members who will add value. We intentionally cap our membership to keep a tight-knit family feel, unlike other masterminds where you’re just a number and never have a voice.
Peer 2 Peer Learning
All of our members are committed to helping one another excel. We all believe in the mission of “growing together”. Every member in the community has committed to openly sharing strategies and tactics by co-hosting one Master Class every six months.
Exclusive Master Class Training
All members get front row seats and access to our monthly trainings on “What’s Working Now” in podcast marking and the tools you’ll need to get an edge on the competition. Master Class trainings are held virtually on the last Thursday of the month. As a Podcast Business Academy member, you’ll get exclusive access to content that will help improve your show.
Group Coaching Calls
All members have the opportunity to get real answers to the most challenging problems they’re facing when it comes to podcasting. This group call provides an open forum for all members of The Podcast Business Academy to grow together and learn from each other’s past mistakes and winning experiments. You’ll get instant feedback and next action steps on each call.
