An Audio Thank You Note

Starting a kick butt podcast is no easy task. Here's a sample image for possible use on the Mix, Sizzle & Shake Your Business Podcast.

This is essentially a thank you podcast episode because I am so elated to have you, listeners!

I know I haven’t made it easy. I can’t seem to live on a set schedule for publishing (to name just one shortcoming) right now. The thing is, my life and mindset, aside from client deadlines, is deadline-free.

Maybe after being at the mercy of an unset but also unsettling constant on-the-go work world for so long, I am revolting! I like doing my thing on whatever schedule I want. I’m not slowing down any, though.

There are BIG BIG THINGS in the workings right now and I am mostly feeling grateful so I am saying so to you in this show.

I also plug my next show and as you will hear, it was taped in the summertime!! So, you see I have materials, topics, and content ready to go at my whatever schedule and pace!

Can You Keep a Secret?

This isn’t coming out until the next podcast post, but since it’s already live as I am writing this, I’m going to say it here. Cause I’m excited!! Good news for listeners, too. Absolutely!!

Lisa Sicard, from Inspire to Thrive, a social media expert, instructor, and manager for social media marketing for clients, and more, is joining the show! We are calling her segments, Thriving Full Throttle on Social Media with Lisa Sicard.

Lisa is super helpful about all questions social so lay them on us for her next dates. Her first Twitter interview is rocking it already (see next PODCAST post) with rave reviews.

I am so excited to have Lisa on board. Don’t miss her episodes!!

My other secret (I hope this won’t disappoint anyone) is I am having second, third, and fourth thoughts about going with LibSyn for the podcast, per plan.

I want to love LibSyn because, like me, they are home in Pittsburgh. They are known to be the best-in-the-business and have a great, long-standing reputation. The Marketing Companion and other fav podcasts use them.

I think I’m confused or maybe still a little too technically underwhelming in my abilities. Either way, I’m not feeling the love to move to LibSyn.

Again, my technological stupidity may be the hangup but I am not understanding the instructions as they offer them. It seems like there’s a missing piece going unanswered for me. Or maybe I am just NOT connecting the dots somehow.

Whatever the case, I am moving forward and sticking for now with Anchor, who put me on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Breaker, and a bunch more places already. (NOTE-to-self: Add all the places MSSYBiz is found to this site!)


I really like using the Anchor app. It’s free and easy to use, and now, you can even monetize right within the platform. I’m not doing that yet as I am still building my audience, and the podcast isn’t my main “gig” either.

Still, I am working to build and grow the MIX/SIZZLE & SHAKE Your Business (MSSYBiz) Podcast, and this website, slowly and consistently. The same exact way I built my main website. And a couple of businesses, so far.

I am saying thank you. And also, I am inviting you back. Finally, I am just letting you know I am always doing the best I can in whatever I create and I keep learning as I go.

Speaking of learning, here are some of my top picks for you:
