Sometimes I let my enthusiasm for what I do get the best of me.
Afton Negrea of The Six Minute Social Podcast asked if I would be interested in being on her podcast and I of course said “YES!”. I was excited for this new experience. I totally got myself on a podcast and in the first few minutes of it… I sound WAY too nervous.
It aired for the first time on Thursday of last week, and man… I certainly wish that I wasn’t as nervous at the beginning of the conversation but, all things considered (nasally voice and all), I’m glad I did it. I shared some great info, and know that I could easily do this again.
Things I learned:
- I don’t sound anything like I thought I did. What a difference
- Although I don’t get nervous when I’m presenting to a group, I get nervous in podcast situations.
- There are many different ways to record for the podcast. You don’t need a crap load of sound equipment, and a sound proof room
- AND during Humble and Fred’s presentation at podcamp, I found out that podcast listeners are 13x more valuable than traditional radio show listeners.
Afton invited me to discuss Twitter chats for business and that’s a tough topic to cover in 6 minutes. Thankfully Afton, added some quick tips to her blog post. You can take a listen to the podcast below and check out Afton’s blog post for the additional information that we couldn’t fit into the session.
And there it is. Hope you enjoyed it.

What kind of feedback have you gotten from the podcast so far, Christine?
I’ve had some good feed back. People want to know more and of course the hope is that they hire me for future work.
That sounds promising 🙂 I’m exciting to venture into this strange world of “podcasting”.
Some things I’m getting off of the plate, and then BOOM. It’s so on.
You’ve always got stuff on your plate and you’re always onto amazing things!
You inspire me to keep trying and to keep pushing forward!
