Episode 027: How Apple Strangles Podcasting

Podcasting has such a bright future they say … but a look at what’s partially behind the explosive growth of video and YouTube, as well as the migration of podcasts to that platform, reveals a deep flaw with Apple’s iTunes platform. I still love audio content and am not foretelling its demise, but one thing seems clear to me: podcasting can’t realize its full potential as long as it’s tied to Apple iTunes.

Video: Beliefs and Behaviors, the Keys to Fulfillment

What is that thing you want? Start a business? Grow your freelance gig into a full blown company with big clients, employees, and your own corporate offices? Whatever it is you want to accomplish, it’s founded on a set of belief. “Someday I’ll start my own business,” or “I want to compete nationally.” The tricky thing about beliefs is often we say we believe one thing, but our behaviors tell a different story.

In this video, I share how I came to question my beliefs, then brought my behaviors into integrity with my goals, and the five simple steps you can take to get aligned and make real change in your life.
