Hey listener! I can’t wait for you to fall in love with today’s guest, Jill Carr. I knew she’d be a fast friend when we first connected on Instagram (with a voice memo, of course! A girl after my own heart!) After our first zoom call I knew I couldn’t keep her to myself and had to invite her on the podcast.
- Jill Carr helps rural women extend their voice with podcasting. She offers a variety of services to launch, manage, and grow podcasts.
- Jill lives with her family on a ranch in the Flint Hills of Kansas. Before launching her own company she discovered podcasts on her 40-minute commute. She became a virtual assistant in 2018 and focused in on podcasting in the last year.
- Coach Kiah was a VA client and became Jill’s first podcast. Jill was hooked! In 2021 she went all in on niching down into podcasting.
- Jill discusses the challenges of being a mom-treprenuer. She originally became her own boss to have more time with family, but realized it was easy to overextend herself. She learned better boundary setting.
- Jill says to always remember your “why” by revisiting it every day. It’s important to have boundaries and systems.
- Jill shares three big reasons to consider podcasting.
- It’s so accessible and is always where your audience is. You can take it along with whatever else has to be done like mowing the yard or doing dishes.
- Connection is the biggest piece of podcasting. You can network with guests, share your voice, and position yourself as an expert. It is so great for building community.
- Jill says podcasting is the best long-form content tool. You can repurpose content with reels, email newsletters, and blog posts.
- Jill mentions Emily Reuschel of the Gather in Growth podcast
- Why bother podcasting when there are millions already out there? Jill says the numbers are deceiving: Only 53% of podcasts produced more than three episodes, 12% have released a new episode in the last quarter, and only 7% in the last month. This leaves fewer than 300,000 “competitors” but remember non all podcasts are for your ideal listener anyway.
- It’s fun to begin but episodes 10-20 are hard! Stick with it and dig in for the long haul. Invest in technical help if you need to.
