Many people have questions about which business to start. But most approach the task from the wrong angle, believing that if they just think about it enough that the answer will magically appear.
In this episode, I cover:
- A myth about the process of deciding which business to start
- Insight into why it is such a difficult quest for veteran corporate employees
- A (fun) homework assignment to get some insight into the best business idea for you
I have changed my hosting format and now have the podcast episodes on Libsyn (short for LIberated Syndication – I chose them based on recommendations from readers, plus their name … how could I resist?).

I will add the RSS button to my blog tomorrow (babysitting time ran out before I finished everything!).
I mentioned in my first episode that podcasting was all new to me so I was going to upgrade my show step by step as I learned more. This time, I did the following things differently:
- Recorded using Audacity, free recording shareware (word to the wise: if you go this route, make sure you first dowload lame-3.96.1, unzip it and save it to your drive. You will need this when you decide to save your recording. And instead of save, choose "Export to mp3"). I haven’t figured out how to edit audio yet, so I will play around with it next time.
- Hosted the podcast on Libsyn. I just used their bare-boned post layout and will jazz it up soon with a better banner, and expanded categories
- Published the feed with Feedburner. I use them to track my blog subscribers and really like the service so I went with them for the podcast as well
My aim for next time is to:
- Include a piece of intro music. Any suggestions?
- Maybe have a pre-recorded introduction of the podcast. What are your feelings on this? Should it be my voice or someone else’s?
- Get all episodes up on iTunes and hope for some new listeners
Thanks in advance for listening, and for your suggestions. Please leave comments on the topic of the podcast here!
