These clips were recorded live at the Podcast Movement, so there is some background noise.
Make Content Just for Them
“Know your craft, plan, know your worth, be determined, and use the resources you have at your disposal. Whether you have one listener or 100,000 listeners, know that those listeners matter, and make your content just for them.” – Delia D’Ambra, Creator & Host, and , Audiochuck
Your Best Networking Tool is Being Yourself
“Your best networking tool is being yourself. Bring all of the warmth, joy, and passion that you have for the stories you want to tell into every conversation, no matter how brief or long. Anyone can be a collaborator; you never know where you’re going to find them.” – Jordan Cobb, Lead Writer & Director,
Failure is Opportunity in Disguise
“One of the biggest things I’ve learned in my career so far is that failure is actually opportunity in disguise. I failed so many times in my life, but every time I’ve failed, I’ve actually come back stronger. And the biggest successes of my life have come on the heels of failure because I just create my own path instead of waiting for a gatekeeper to tell me yes and open a door for me.” – Hala Taha, Creator, , YAP Media Network
Don’t Shy Away from Being Honest
“I was breaking bread with a previous boss, and he flat-out asked me how I’m doing and how I’m feeling. And I honestly said, “Stagnant and stuck.”… Five months later, I got another job. He wrote me a letter of recommendation, and I still call him to this day. So that defining moment for me was having people in your life that you can be honest with, having people in your life that can be supportive and help you get to the next place. Don’t shy away from being open and honest, especially when it’s with somebody that you trust.” – Justine Benjamin, Head of Marketing,
