Holy crap! This lil ol' podcast has made it to the big 5-0! Thank you for being a part of the Redefining Health & Wellness journey so far. It means the world to me that people all over the planet listen to this podcast I work so hard on.
In celebration of this milestone, I invite you to get up close and personal with the podcast in this solo episode. I start at the very beginning (a very good place to start) with telling you how the podcast came to be and walk you through all the steps it took to grow the podcast to where it is today.
I share what my start-up costs were before launch, how much it costs me to produce the podcast now, and how much money I've made from the podcast (spoiler alert: not much yet!). Additionally, I describe all of the time and energy that gets put in behind the scenes to release each episode.
I hope you enjoy this deep dive into my podcasting process. I'm committed to continuing this important, culture-making work, and I'm looking forward to the next 50 episodes!

How To Support the Podcast
Each episode of the podcast is carefully crafted with you, the listener, in mind. If you appreciate the podcast and what you're learning from it, there are multiple ways to support it so I can continue to put out episodes for months and years to come.
1. Subscribe, rate & review, and share.
Want to help the show keep growing? First, subscribing to the podcast in your podcast provider of choice is the best way to make sure you never miss an episode. Second, ratings and reviews in Apple Podcasts make it easier for people to discover the show. To leave one, click here from any Apple device, scroll down to "Ratings and Reviews", and click where it says "Write A Review" to submit one. Lastly, don't hesitate to share your favorite episodes with friends or give the podcast a shout-out on social media (I love seeing your tags!).
2. Leave a tip.
While the podcast is still growing and without consistent advertisers, the hours of labor I put into producing the show are unpaid, and I pay for editing, transcriptions, and hosting out of pocket. Consider leaving a tip through Paypal, Venmo, or the Cash app to show your appreciation for all the work that goes into putting out a weekly episode for you to enjoy:
