What You Need For A Podcast

I started my podcast in October 2019, and I was SO worried my setup wasn’t good enough.

*I remember constantly texting my podcast editor Addison for equipment recommendations, begging him to forgive me for my ignorance.*

The truth is, I was insecure.

>>I didn’t know what to say, I didn’t think anyone would listen, and I cringed at the sound of my voice.<<

But in eight months, The Jasmine Star Show crossed a MILLION DOWNLOADS.

*Yes, I kiiiiind of just referred to myself in third person…ewww!*

The video below gives you a behind-the-scenes look at how I actually record my podcast, and I have to warn you: it isn’t fancy.

But for now, I want to encourage you as you embark on the brave journey of sharing your voice with the world.

>>Oh sweet, brilliant friend: resist the urge to list reasons why it won’t work, and focus on all the reasons it WILL work.<<

I recently read that a person thinks 60,000 thoughts per day, and 75% of those thoughts are negative.

That means that you’re thinking 45,000 negative thoughts a day. Should I repeat that?


The narrative could be anything from:

  • “I’m not good enough”
  • “I’ve failed at everything I’ve done before”
  • “I’m not as good as he is” to 44,997 other thoughts

And these thoughts? They are toxic.

>>The best thing you can do as an entrepreneur is stop mid-thought and CHANGE THE NARRATIVE.<<

Oh, friend, you must tell yourself a new story.

The story you tell yourself can give you life, or it can slowly disintegrate your belief and passion for what you do. 

The choice is yours.

I’ve come to believe you have 60,000 opportunities to tell yourself a story that is unabashedly true: I am enough.

It’s time to believe that what you need for a podcast isn’t just equipment… it’s to change the toxicity to transformation.
