Show Notes: Podcasting Ideas

Product Podcasting Ideas:

  1. If you have a product, such as a book or a class consider teaching aspects of your book or class in each podcast.
  2. Use the podcast as a launching spot for trying new book ideas. If the idea is successful you will know by audience feedback.
  3. Use the feedback from your audience to create a new product.
  4. Test your new product on your audience – tweak before selling.
  5. Use your podcast to jump start sales, promote your upcoming book and suggest pre-sale orders

Service Podcasting Ideas

  1. Are you a consultant, or service provider? Use the podcast to show our knowledge on a topic where you consult.
  2. Use your podcast to create interest in a social media group you host. Begin a line of questioning in your podcast that you answer in your social media group, or privately through consultation.
  3. Podcast about your services – what is it that you do, explain.
  4. As an author-consultant, I interview special guests that my authors would want to know more about such as someone who knew about setting up book signings at big retailers, award-winning authors, agents, and publishers.
  5. What successful guest can you host who will bring value to your audience and help share your show?

Show Notes: Mini Retreat

  1. What is a retreat?
  2. What is the perfect retreat for you?
  3. What is one thing that is holding you back?
  4. The power of concentrated prayer.
  5. Listening is the key to finding the answer.
  6. Give it time.

Do you have an hour? This is how I divide one hour of prayer time into a mini-retreat with the Lord.

First fifteen minutes: spend time in praising God, whether it is in prayer or singing, rejoice in the Lord. He is worthy of all our prayers!

Second fifteen minutes: listen… journal your thoughts, jot down scriptures to look up–but not yet! Just be with the Lord… He will lead you.

Third fifteen minutes: Read Scripture. Look up the verses that came to mind during your quiet time. Slowly allow the words to sink in – close your eyes and think about what you read.

Last fifteen minutes: Prayers of petition. Are you praying for something specific? Is there a concentrated prayer request that you bring to the Lord daily? Focus on this prayer and seek the Lord’s wisdom.

End with praising God – praise is important to begin with and end with. In praising God we are thankful for all He has given us and we can begin our day (if our retreat is first thing) or continue our day with happy thoughts about His love and goodness…no matter what is happening in our lives.

Finding God Every Day

Finding God in the Every Day with Felice GerwitzFinding God in the Every Day with Felice Gerwitz

Do you have a daily schedule? It’s time to add finding God to your list. The Lord’s voice is something we seek, whether in quiet time or in prayer. What should we do? What does God want us to do? What is God’s will for us, today, tomorrow or next year? How do we find God? In this episode, Felice Gerwitz discusses how we should seek God every day.

Whether it is finding God in the rainbow, or the beautiful sunset – to finding God in the person sitting next to you in church, your life will become joyful if you look. In addition add journaling time to your day. When you journal you can see, more clearly the Lord’s work in your life. Study the following scriptures in finding God in the every day – 1 Kings 11-12 and Isaiah 41:10

1 Kings 11-12

The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.”

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.

Isaiah 41:10

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
