In this episode, I have the pleasure of presenting to you someone that I've been following for a while online and at local events. I've attended his workshops and live events in an effort to learn how to better humanize my message, something that can be applied to almost any business or project. Welcome my colleague and fellow podcaster Ozeal DeBastos.
Ozeal is a podcaster, podcast consultant, and founder of Ozeal Media. Since the launch of his podcast, No Permission Needed, in 2017, his show has garnered iTunes’ coveted, “New and Noteworthy” designation, as well a position on Apple’s Top 50 business podcast list. His podcast, No Permission Needed has an undisputed five-star rating, and over one million downloads.
When starting anything you will always be beset by self-doubt and questioning your ability to perform at the highest standards. Starting a podcast for me was akin to starting a new job, the imposter syndrome was and is so real, it paralyzes you if you allow it. When Covid 19 happened it struck me that the time is now…no more waiting, because evidently time can be so fleeing. I remember Ozeal insisting that I just start, that I don’t wait until it's perfect, and that it would flow as long as I stayed true to my vision and myself. That's what this episode is here to do, motivate you to START and to keep going despite the imposter syndrome, the doubts, the self-sabotaging and not knowing the process.
This year we both encourage you to take the opportunity to “humanize your message” and make it a viable part of any marketing strategy. Whether in business or your personal brand, we think this is the time to tell everyone your story!
