NOMWE PODCAST | 2020 Goals: Get Excited

Every January we sit down and ask ourselves what do we want for ourselves in the new year? What ways can we improve? This year is not so different from any other year except that I was invited to join my friend, Reenie on her podcast, Nomwe. We had a good hour long chat about our 2020 goals, how we want to improve ourselves, what habits we wanted to change and shared a few tools and tips we are using to help us get there.

One of my goals which I have kickstarted by being a guest on the Nomwe Podcast is to be more consistent with podcast content creation.

I have created podcasts for other people, consulted on podcast projects and hosted my own podcast with Zambia Blogtalk Radio. Getting back into has meant having to be serious enough to purchase a microphone (I was lucky to get it as a gift from Reenie), sit down to come up topics, create a plan and start recording.

The main thing I had to overcome was the idea that I was doing what everyone else was doing. But I had to remind myself I have been here before, the landscape has changed and continues to change. I still have something different to offer and a voice that is unique enough.

It is also important to have someone who you can bounce off ideas off of or who is encouraging you to record more or just to start, what Reenie mentions as an “accountability partner” in the podcast.

I hope you enjoy listening to the Nomwe podcast, please check it out on the following platforms:

I would love to know what content creation goals you have this year and if podcasting features as one of them!
