If you’re into podcasting, this episode is for you! In this episode, I am talking with Angel Yarde all about podcasting. Angel launched a successful entrepreneurial podcast with her co-host last year called Heart and Hustle. With this being so new to me, and podcasting becoming such a fun way for people to have a new outlet, I wanted to talk to Angel about all things podcasting. It was my hopes that between the two of us, you’ll know the basics of what it takes to start a podcast, and get some inspiration for your own if you’re thinking about starting one. At the very least, you’ll get a behind the scenes look into how podcasts are created, hear some fun stories, and get to learn a little more about two business owners going after some of their passion projects. Enjoy!
