Podcasting is a legitimate and profitable business opportunity
"Podcasting is like the expression of that (media personalities). It may have played out before in like, talk shows or radio personalities. So it's the same thing."
"The cost of distribution for music and podcasting is basically free. Because all those platforms allow you to distribute it at no cost. And so the level of your reach is large. That's huge, because I have people that listen to me all over the world out of this studio in Mansfield, which is awesome."
"You create based on what you feel is what you need to express. You give it to the market, and then it'll evolve it. The market will evolve it. You'll evolve. You'll get better. You'll be inspired more based on your interaction with the market."
"Let's have the conversation (interaction with the market), let's have harmony, let's have a two way conversation and let's find mutual agreement. And that's where you find your flow. And you can put out content into infinity by having that conversation."
