Should You Start a Podcast? (Steps to Get Started and What I Wish I Knew Sooner!)

“Jasmine, should I start a podcast?”

Ahh, a question I’ve gotten countless times since I started The Jasmine Star Show in 2019.

And this might come as a surprise (since I’m pro-long-form content)… but the answer isn’t always yes. In fact, depending on your business goals, sometimes it can distract you from your most urgent business needs (meaning it isn’t always the best use of your time/energy/effort.).

Now you might be thinking… ‘but how do I know if it’s the right time, and if it is, how do I even get started?’ 

I got you, friend. In this episode, I’m sharing my framework to help you decide if podcasting is the right move for your business, my step-by-step process on how to get started, and everything I wish I had known before I started my show.
