Let me just start off by saying TGIF! Welcome back readers, fans, and friends. It's time again for my weekly blog post and I've been racking my brain on what all to cover in this week's article. So many things have happened and the week still isn't quite over. I've had an interesting week to say the least but I think overall I'd like to cover Podcasts and why you should listen to them.
However, the Wheelie Crew and myself didn't just work on the podcast all this week, I mean we conducted three more awesome interviews and have two episodes already lined up for release in the next couple of weeks, but we had a lot of other coals on the fire as well with some really fun client work involving ad creations, logo developments, web design, and infographic creations. But the main thing that I feel needs to be addressed is this podcasting business.
Our operations manager Dan made a really funny comment in our first podcast about the "lucrative business" of Podcasting and that's why we're making one. Obviously he was being sarcastic. Unless you have a really popular podcast with sponsors, there's not a lot of money to be made from it. We didn't start this podcast to make money. We just wanted to put something out here to add value to our customers' lives, and attract the people behind the types of businesses we work with the most. We wanted something for you listeners out there to be able to listen to while you ride your bike to work or go for an evening stroll, and maybe, just maybe, we've made something a little inspiring for those of you out there that may want to become an entrepreneur and start that company you've dreamed about for years.
So far we've done our pilot episode, "Hey let's meet!", if you want to get to know a few fun facts abut Dan, Lisa and myself, you should definitely set aside a bit of time and listen to this episode. We all have different and unique stories of how we got to where we are at Wheelie Creative today.
For our second episode we had the pleasure of interviewing Mollie Busby, a local business owner and really fun entrepreneur to work with. Mollie just opened Yoga Hive Montana here in Whitefish, she has some great stories about how she started her business and about the non-profit she runs called Riding on Insulin.
With two podcasts done, uploaded and playing on iTunes, PodBean, and on wheeliecreative.com/podcast, we were stoked to start adding more to the list. Our library seems quite small now with only two podcasts, which is a great accomplishment, but who would we interview next? We needed another local with lots of outdoor industry experience. But the kicker with our next interviewee is that he used to own a business himself and now he works for an already established outdoor company that he finds fulfilling and adventurous.
Episode 3 will be released this next Wednesday with local guest podcaster Jason Forest, sales manager of Whitefish Mountain Resort, who will talk about working for an established outdoor company instead of starting his own, and sharing his favorite adventure stories. It's definitely going to be a good listen, with half business and half adventure talk (as our main topics in all episodes), this podcast will not only be informative but very fun with moments of hilarity.
The list keeps growing with the people we will interview. We hope to spread the word about their businesses and keep the podcast fresh with new adventure stories. If you or someone you know is extremely outdoorsy, works in the idustry, has worked with graphic designers before, and would be interested in sharing their stories, have them write our epic Operations Manager, Danimal the Manimal at email@example.com. We'd love to hear your stories!
Happy Friday everyone! Thanks for reading another post in A Wheelie___FILL IN THE BLANK___Week. Go out and enjoy the weekend and don't forget that sunscreen! ;)
