I recently completed the Broadcast Yourself Program and launched my first platform — RDO PODCAST! To be honest I had been wanting to start a podcast and a YouTube channel for a while but did not know where to start.
As a self employed small business owner, I had recently hired more people, expanded my business a bit, and had a little more free time. I mentioned the idea for a podcast to some friends, and literally the next day I received an email regarding this course from Brian Rose.
I’ve followed Brian since 2017 and felt he was legit in his overall mission, especially after being banned from YouTube following the David Ike interviews. A bit of a tangent, but the point is I only invest in people I believe in.
That said I was already gearing up to do this anyway, so I saw this as the perfect opportunity to fast track the process. Now as far as the course, it seemed comprehensive from the outside based on what I could gather in terms of what was included.
The course jumped off very quickly and required about 4–8 hours of commitment per week. I had to remain disciplined in order to balance my work schedule with the course requirements, which definitely forces a high level of personal accountability.
With that said, they show you everything you need to know in order to get this done successfully, but you absolutely have to take action! The work is not going to do itself — and this isn’t a course to make you feel better, it is RESULTS driven— it’s about making measurable progress along the way.
I have not seen another course like this, so I have to say it’s unique in that sense, but most importantly it’s the real deal. The modules are well put together, the course leadership is great, and the group energy is exactly what you need to push things forward and get out of your comfort zone!
While I wasn’t sure what to expect at first, I took a chance, followed my gut on this and I have transformed personally as a result. It’s honestly NOT for everyone. You will have to take it seriously, be real about your goals, and put the work in.
If you quit easily or want something done for you then this course is not for you. If you have a vision for what you want to create and need the tools and guidance to make that vision a reality then I highly recommend you jump in. It’s a unique opportunity and the market is exploding for quality content creators, ESPECIALLY in podcasting.
Now I have to admit, I was truly sold by the option to have a full length interview with Brian Rose himself. Not crazy about going to London, but that alone was worth it to me. Once I had a chance to speak with someone and have my questions answered my mind was made up, and that was a done deal.
If you are looking for that edge to get going in this market, to sharpen your skills and really complete a personal journey along the way then this is it. Again, it’s not for everyone, but I really wanted to do something like this, and I dove in and made it happen.
After this level of personal growth, I am not the same person that went into this course clueless and uncomfortable on camera. I accepted the challenge, put in the work, dug deep, and I’m reaping the rewards as a result.
I went from zero to launch within 8 weeks, made some great friends and professional connections within the course, and I’m continuing to grow my platform and help countless people everyday.
If I am being completely objective here, I would rate the course a 9 out of 10, mainly because I would have liked to see more focus on how to create trailers, market, and promote for massive growth. They DO cover a good bit of this, but as important as this is I feel there could have been more on this subject.
There were a couple other minor details, like integrating iTunes from Anchor was a bit complicated, Mailchimp is not great, but that’s really about it. Otherwise everything else was very organized and on point. Coaches were responsive and the course was well structured all the way through! If I had to go back I would do it again — highly recommend!
