Ask Mike Anything:

Today’s Ask Mike Anything Question came from a Google survey I conducted :

Question:
How do you keep a consistent publishing schedule when you have a busy lifestyle?

Answer:
The simplest answer I can give you is that you need to make your podcast a priority and a part of your routine. No exceptions.

Bottom Line:
Your podcast needs to be a routine in your life or business that just becomes like any other commitment on the schedule if you want to keep consistent. If you are not happy with your format or your podcast is controlling you, adapt and change. I am a one man band show because it fits my style yet I know interviews would get me more downloads. Do what is best for you and stick to a schedule and you will be able to publish on time.
