In today's episode host, Cait Pearson covers the most common fears that come up when people are either launching or growing their podcasts.
So many people heavily promote the “how-to” of podcasting, which is fine but the plan is only as great as the person feeling confident to execute it. This is where I begin.
The Podcast Course is the easy-as-a-spoon-fed-to-you-pie guide on exactly how to start and launch your podcast in 6 weeks.

These fears today are the most common, and do you know what they all make glaringly obvious?
We get stuck on the “why me,” impostor syndrome, and doubt way before we get stuck on the “how-to” of it all.
So today the most common fears we touch on are (in the form of common phrases):
- “I'm afraid it won't be successful”
- “Who will listen to it?”
- “What if no one listens?”
- “I'm under qualified/ impostor syndrome”
- “I fear judgement”
- “I might offend someone”
- “I'm afraid my topic is too personal.”
- “covering things that are different than my other platforms.”
- “wont give enough value.”
- “how to start”
- “finding time to record.”
Good thing for you I've been down this road for a few years now and I'm more than ecstatic that you're here so I can support you through it.

The “Man in the Arena Quote”
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
