And it really took the community that really pushed me into this [starting a podcast].”“My travel style is very random. I really follow the flight deal. And that has led me to some really incredible places. I’ve been to Iceland three times. It’s top three by far and it’s because I found cheap flights there. So, I think if you’re open to seeing what comes up you’ll be really surprised at the places that you’ll really fall in love with.”“I think since my podcast has launched a lot of people in my circle have been inspired to start their own podcasts.”“Financial independence is definitely the biggest thing that I am working on and it also drives me to be more creative.”THANK YOU SPONSORS!Register to Win Focusrite’s Podcast Studio MakeoverLINKS MENTIONEDEpisode transcription on ThistenFullCast WebsiteFocusrite WebsitePodcast Junkies Junkies Facebook GroupDanielle’s LinkedInDanielle’s Podcast WebsiteDanielle’s WOC Podcasters WebsiteDanielle’s Twitter – @thethoughtcardDanielle’s Instagram – @thethoughtcardDanielle’s FacebookPodfestWhat is the One Thing You Wish You Had Known Before You Started Your Podcast?
Three weeks ago we were in Malaga having tapas and wine with Bill Bailey and now that seems like a lifetime away as most of us around the world are in lockdown. Lisa talks about how the travel ban and lockdown is affecting her and people around the world and also speaks to Paul Burge from the When in Spain Podcast and Danielle Desir from the Thought Card Podcast who is in Bridgeport in Connecticut. A heartfelt ode to the friends, family and freedoms we are all missing.
