Finding Purpose through Podcasting: How New Meaning was Revealed through a Sportz show with Cole Johnson (AoL 098)
People find their purpose, or as I like to call it - mission, through various ways.
As we've heard, some people find that purpose early on in life. Many of those have the help of mentors to find that.
For others, life becomes the mentor and eventually you realize that there has got to be something else.
For Cole Johnson, today's guest, he realized that he wanted to be a creative later in life. In fact, it wasn't until his wife started bringing out the creative in him that he decided he needed to have a way to get his voice out there.
And talk about a voice! He knew he could sing - but have a voice for the radio? He didn't think it was possible.
Today, Cole finds himself at the helm of two podcasts. His original Cole Sportz and his soon to be released Revelations.
In our chat today, we learn how he got here, how Cole Sportz got started, and some tips for beginner podcasters.
