S1E14: Why You Should Just Start That Podcast with Goli Kalkhoran

Want to work with me? CLICK HERE Did you love this episode? Share this link with a friend: https://pod.link/justpodcasting Episode Summary: Goli Kalkhoran of Lessons From a Quitter, talks about leaving her practice as an attorney to find contentment and drive from her passions. We delve into leaving her firm, the emotions behind that, building a new business, and how she eventually allowed herself to begin podcasting. With so much going on between being a mom of two littles and running her own businesses, we also discuss time management, balance, and how all of this is impacting her personal life. Meet the Podcaster: Website: www.lessonsfromaquitter.com Goli Kalkhoran is a former lawyer turned podcaster on a mission to let others know that it is okay to abandon the passions and goals they had as young adults, in order to grow and thrive as they get to know themselves in every decade of life. She spent the time, effort, energy, and money to become a lawyer, but once she started practicing, realized that she felt stuck and trapped. Along with that feeling of being trapped, was a certain level of guilt over wanting to quit something that she had worked so hard and for so long to attain. With the support of her husband, she quit the job that was suffocating her, and found her calling in helping others realize that it is okay to be a quitter in order to find the work that truly inspires growth and passion both personally and professionally. Highlights: Goli spent two years conceptualizing her podcast, but put it off due to time and imposter-syndrome. She wanted to get her message out there when she quit her firm initially, but felt that she needed to be successful in her own business before she could launch. Sound familiar? After deciding to take the leap, she had her show launched within 5 months. Barriers: She stood in her own way thinking that she needed to be able to provide experience, but she’d already taken the leap by quitting her practice and really just needed to share her insights. Budget: Goli had no budget in mind when she started. She didn’t spend too much or too little, just got the things she needed to get going. She now thinks she’ll be spending more on marketing. Pain points: Writing show notes. We both agree that writing the show notes almost takes longer than editing the pieces themselves. Do they actually have value? Struggles: The struggle is real when it comes to falling down the rabbit hole. She shares about how she gets sucked in to the social media aspect because she enjoys connecting with her audience, but this has caused her some time management issues. This experience has been so very positive for her and her family. Her husband is supportive, her son loves to pretend to record, and she has found profound fulfillment in normalizing the idea of starting over to pursue your passions, rather than staying stuck in your expectations. Message to new podcasters: starting is overwhelming, but you don’t know what you don’t know and there are so many things that you can only learn by doing. Don’t wait for everything to be right to start, just start.

Cats in this episode: It's always Fat Round... but sometimes Moo. Personal Podcasting Pain Point: I kinda hate the way the interviews sound a year later. Maybe my processing was too aggressive. I use a gentler touch these days and I'm more forgiving of my own voice.

Share it with a friend!!! Episode Summary: Jerri Williams discusses her transition from former FBI agent to author to podcaster. She weaves a compelling tale, detailing the challenges of creating a podcast based on interviews with FBI case agents, both former and current. Beginning with budgetary concerns, equipment, scheduling and family impact, she gets more in-depth while discussing her personal mission to present the cases and issues in true FBI fashion, unbiased and non-partisan. About the Podcaster: Jerri Williams has always been a storyteller and, after serving 26 years as a special agent in the FBI, she has plenty of stories to tell. During most of her Bureau career she worked major economic fraud investigations and was amazed at the schemes con-artist and corrupt corporate and public officials would devise to steal other people’s money. She has also had the opportunity to work bank robberies and drug investigations. The one thing she knows for sure is… “With a gun, you can steal hundreds. With a pen, you can steal millions.” She is using her prior professional experiences with scams and schemers to write crime fiction inspired by actual true crime FBI cases and to produce and host FBI Retired Case File Review, a true crime and history podcast where she interviews retired FBI agents about their high-profile cases and careers, corrects clichés and misconceptions about the FBI in books, TV, and movies, and reviews crime fiction. In her new book, FBI Myths and Misconceptions: A Manual for Armchair Detectives, she presents her top 20 clichés and misconceptions about the FBI. Each cliché has its own chapter where she provides a reality check while breaking down the facts. Throughout the book, she also includes quotes from retired agents about how the FBI actually works and reviews popular films and fiction featuring FBI agent characters. Highlights: Why Jerri decided to do a podcast How long it took Jerri to execute her podcast James Comey’s impact on Jerri’s social media presence The budget and technology Jerri started podcasting with The physical toll of podcasting and simultaneously writing her third book Podcasting with side projects and family growth Parts of podcasting that overwhelm Jerri Does Jerri’s family share her love of podcasts? How Jerri finds time to podcast and write Jerri discusses how her new book FBI in Film and in Fiction combines her passions Why podcasting for social impact is important to Jerri How has podcasting negatively impacted Jerri’s life? How has podcasting positively impacted Jerri’s life?

Who I think is now our official mascot. Jerri’s pup, Canyon, got jealous, so he’s in there, too. Personal Podcasting Pain Point: When you love to listen to podcasts and have one of your own, it’s hard to keep up! Also, I need to get out of the house more! Also, Squadcast failed partway through this interview. Zencaster doesn’t work for me… ever. So, we finished up this recording on Zoom.us. And you can probably tell. Special thanks to my awesome editor Michael for sorting out the mess that was this recording. He’s one Ya Ya Podcasting amazing team members and I’d be lost without him.
