Can I make a living with a podcast?

Episode 1666 (16:15)

Bill from Cincinnati, Ohio

Bill wants to know if he can make a living podcasting. Leo says that it takes a long time to build an audience to make a living. It's better to pick something you're really passionate about and then just do it. Focus on building your audience, not trying to make a buck. As for how to get started, Leo recommends Anchor.fm. You can put the app on your phone and create your podcast directly from it. Or you can upload a podcast you recorded the old fashioned way; you can even monetize it. They have a deal with Spotify and will also plug it. But as Leo said, don't worry about that at first. Just focus on putting the best podcast out you can and build your audience.
