“People want to lose weight but they also want happiness and joy in their lives. That just doesn’t come from the gym and eating healthy. Eating better and exercising can add to it but there’s a whole entire lifestyle that you need to really facilitate and nurture.” – Rob Dionne
Hey guys! I recently had an awesome interview as a guest on Adam Schaeuble’s new podcast, Casting The Pod. Adam’s name might sound familiar to you and he was actually a past Open Sky Fitness Guest in episode 189 – Creating Your Own Lifestyle Rehabilitation Statement And Plan.
Adam also hosts The Million Pound Mission Podcast. His new podcast, Casting The Pod shares the stories of podcasters and their experiences building, promoting, and growing a podcast show. It is also a 100% real and authentic representation of his own podcasting journey. All of his growth strategies (good and bad) will be revealed and all of the download and monetization numbers will be shared. His goal is to deliver a weekly dose of POD-tastic info that will help podcasters get their message out there!
I had such an awesome time sharing my podcasting story with Adam that I wanted to share it on Open Sky Fitness with all of you as well. Not only did we talk about the origin, current status, and future of Open Sky Fitness but we also dove into what’s going on in my personal life as a new father. Hence, this episode will also be about making lifestyle changes and how we can make that happen.
As you tune in, we’ll talk about:
- Rob’s advice for preparing for an interview and how to make the show light and entertaining.
- How to rebound from a tough interview and make any podcast episode awesome.
- Why being comfortable talking to people is so key to becoming a podcaster and it’s okay if that’s not you because you can focus on other things like writing, Instagram, YouTube etc.
- Why you’re not just interviewing people but you’re also building relationships with people.
- How Rob’s life has changed since the birth of his daughter, Charlie Skye.
- The benefits of meeting with a therapist and what he learned from his sessions.
- The moment Rob realized he had to take a step back in order to give himself and his family more attention and care.
- How Rob strives to practice what he preaches and really wants to work with people from a genuine place.
- How to build an environment in which you can thrive.
