Inspiration, Knowledge, and Growth!
🎙 Back in 2017 I was inspired to start a podcast, and I felt very animated and passionate about it. So I learned about equipment, got my microphones and other gear, and when I got everything… I got stuck! What would the podcast be about? How would I find content consistently? I only knew it would be around personal development, but nothing more specific. So a few months went by without anything happening…
At that time I was a member of a mastermind group, and one of the other members was Paul Greig Smith. One time while me and him were talking passionately about personal development, another member, Luke, turned and said "you two sound very entertaining when you talk about these, why don't you do a podcast?"
💥 That was the conception of "Personal development essentials" podcast, with me and Paul as co-hosts, and in September 2018 we launched! Fast forward to today, and we are at episode #72, with downloads in 80 countries!
Most of the episodes' format was me and Paul deep diving and discussing a specific topic on personal development, such as growth mindset, goal setting, procrastination, meditation, etc.
🎙 Some of the episodes were different, though: it was me interviewing intriguing people, asking them about their own personal development journey, about their own insights, trials & tribulations, having them share their knowledge and experiences.
A year and a half has passed since, and I have interviewed over 30 exceptional people. I found myself really enjoying not only the actual interview, but also the preparation - researching, finding out about the person I'd interview, getting to know about them beforehand. As a matter of fact, I developed a flair for that!
🤔 However, as "Personal development essentials" podcast became a mixture of co-hosts' discussions and interviews, the original idea behind it was diluted. The mission was, and still is, for me and Paul to talk about our own personal development experiences as "two guys in our forties in a race against time to figure things out in our own lives, trying to grow and help others as we go".
The solution to this dilemma came to me as an inspiration: to create a second podcast, one that will feature just the interviews, and leave the format of the original podcast as it was intended to be.
🎉 So this leads us to "Personal Development Mastery" podcast!
I interview leaders and influencers who will inspire you to to take action, have the courage to pursue your dreams, and improve your life - this is not about just passing knowledge.
✅ My mission is to inspire you to rise up, grow, stand out, and move towards the next level of your life - towards the best version of yourself!
