Podcast Answer Man
By Cliff Ravenscraft
Evergreen Insights On The Topic of Podcasting My name is Cliff Ravenscraft and I started podcasting as a hobby in December 2005. Within the first two years of Podcasting, I had launched a number of shows related to entertainment, business, social media, technology, faith, family and more, producing as many seven to fifteen podcast episodes a week, reaching hundreds of thousands of subscribers from all over the world. Podcast Answer Man was the 5th podcast that I launched. Starting in December 2006, it was this show that made it possible for me to start a podcast coaching / consulting business that proved that I could generate more than enough income to provide for my family. In January 2008, I left an extremely lucrative career as an independent insurance agent, in a family run insurance agency that was started by my grandfather in 1937. I was next in line to take over the agency from my father. Yet I became convinced that I wanted to find a way to do what I was doing through podcasting, full-time, as my career. Over the next decade, I built an online business where I became the world's leading authority on podcasting. I am personally responsible for training more than 40,000 people on the successful launch of their podcast. After a decade of teaching people how to podcast, I began to desire another significant career transition. Rather than answer technical questions related to the topic of podcasting, I wanted to coach others on far more important issues such as mindset, career and overall life transformation. In March 2016, I began a significant rebranding process where I transitioned my original Podcast Answer Man podcast into The Cliff Ravenscraft Show. It is in the archives of this, my main podcast, that you'll find the ORIGINAL 438 episodes of The Podcast Answer Man podcast. In September 2017, I ended the final session of my Podcasting A To Z Group Training Program, shutting down 100% of all income streams from a half a million dollar per year business, so that I could focus all of my work time, effort and energy on what I felt most passionate about doing in the world. Mindset & Life Transformation Coaching is what I do today and you can learn about the products and services I offer on my Work With Me Page at CliffRavenscraft.com. In August 2021, I made the decision to relaunch this ALL-NEW VERSION of the Podcast Answer Man Podcast to share Evergreen Insights On The Topic of Podcasting. I am still in love with Podcasting as much today as I was back when I published my first episodes back in 2005. It is my desire that the content that you'll find in this show will only enhance your own enjoyment of all that Podcasting can bring into your life.
