Joining me this week is Lyndal Harris.
Lyndal’s journey started as a Virtual Assistant (VA) in 2012. She had spent 6 years juggling family and learning everything she needed to know to start a business.
In 2016, her life changed when she was sitting in a hospital room with her husband being told that he had pancreatic cancer. The only thing they could do was palliative chemo. At this point, she knew her life had changed.
Lyndal needed a lifestyle that enabled her to be there for her family, so she changed her business. Lyndal decided to combine her experience of working virtually to support clients and her love of podcasting and Podcast VA was born. Lyndal and her team make podcasting easier. They manage every aspect, reducing the stress and overwhelm that comes with launching and maintaining a successful podcast.
We chat about:
- Lyndal’s challenges when transitioning into her own business
- Her top tips when considering setting up a podcast
- The biggest mistakes people are making when podcasting
- How Lyndal manages the demands on her time.
This podcast comes at the perfect time with so many people considering how they can build their online presence in a very challenging time given the current COVID-19 pandemic. Many small business owners have also chatted with me about starting a podcast so perhaps the time is now?
