Success! My podcast show is now live!

Last Update: September 27, 2015

Hey guys!

This post is a status update from where I left off last with you all at

I am here to tell you that the long-awaited journey has finally arrived....thank you God! :)

Today, after a lot of hard podcast is now live! It has been quite an interesting journey and I'm not quite sure what God has been showing me through it all.

Technical Difficulties

What held me back most? Technical difficulties...

Needless to say, I actually had an easier time recording, editing, and finalizing my podcast in garageband and learning about that world than getting it live and officially launching the show on my site.

The reason for this is because I followed Pat Flynn's instructions on how to get my podcast up and running, but when I got to the part where I am supposed to insert the "media URL" link into Powerpress (through Wordpress) kept giving me error messages.

When I say interesting journey I mean really interesting. Here I am with the final product edited and complete (which was a lot of hard work over time, especially since I had to learn everything from scratch.) and the inability to upload to my site.

This went on for about a week and a half, almost two weeks I believe.

It felt like an eternity and actually earlier this weekend I got more frustrated and mad than I think I have ever been in the last 5 years of my life.

Now, keep in mind I didn't rage or anything. Since I have become a, patience, and peace have filled those anger gaps in my life. And even before that, I considered myself a pretty easy-going person.

The Solution

So I called up one of my Brothers in Christ and did a screen share with him and he admits to not really doing much but I still thanked him immensely.

The simple fact that I could show someone my struggle and talk through it out loud was therapeutic in its own right.

So the solution? my brother Brian simply suggested that I try uploading anyways despite that the link did not verify and came back with an error message.

AKA do the same thing you've been doing but follow through into the next step regardless of what the error message is telling you.

POOF! Sure enough it worked just like that. Was I upset at this point? Not at all, I was so relieved and thankful to God that I got it up and running finally this weekend :)

When I look back on how angry I got, I can laugh about it and know that God is smirking and had a lesson in it for me after all.

Never stop pursing your dream in becoming successful. The more you work hard, the closer you are towards your goal. Never forget your goals and never let anything negative get to you. Things happen for a reason. Remember, we all joined Wealthy Affiliate for a reason, and the reason to become successful online, but not only, successful, but to fulfill something extravagant. Be awesome, stay awesome!

Thanks Johnny, did you give it a listen? If so, what did you think?

Matthew, I am thrilled for you. I'm glad you put it all together. I remember last time you were asking about how to put your audio up on the site, now it's live.

I can imagine how it's probably been frustrating to spend 2 weeks to find a way to upload. Don't we all have those issues when working on our site. :)

I will definitely listen to it later in the day when I have some free time. I mean it's pretty cool to have a podcast running, dude. I don't really think I have enough courage to do that at the moment.

Wow Anh, your comment touched me in a special way and made me smile :) Thank you very much for your kind words!

I am really excited about the podcast mainly to get the message out because I want it to be all about God and less about me.

I am also excited to hear your feedback on the podcast and what you think. It has been 6 days since I've been on here, did you give it a listen and what do you think?
