Podcast Envy Pro Pod - Cohort Application
Welcome to Podcast Envy Pro Pod! I am currently taking applications to join our first curated cohort of professionals who podcast (not necessarily professional podcasters) from a variety of entrepreneurial and content creative backgrounds. The vision is 10-12 pros coming together for a monthly strategy session to solve your most pressing questions around growth, sustainability, craft and culture.
This program is for creative business leaders within any industry or niche with at least 6 months podcasting experience. We will not be covering the basics of "how to podcast," rather deeper topics for which you can't just Google the answer or post in a Facebook Group.
This founding round will meet monthly via Zoom. Each session will spotlight one member with a question around their show for us to discuss. Every 6 months, you get a deep dive 1-on-1 coaching with me (first one starts at the beginning of the program! Membership includes other perks like show features on Podcast Envy, access to my Craft & Culture behind the scenes podcast and an exclusive online hub on Mighty Networks for quick questions and resources for the community.
The founder's rate is $99/month when paid monthly, $948 annually ($79/mo.) If you are a production & editing client of The Creative Impostor Studios, your membership may be rolled into your monthly service retainer.
The plan is to begin our monthly Zooms January 2021 and our 1x1 coaching session may be sooner (depending on our mutual availability.) There is no hard commitment in terms of the number of months you stay, but I ask for an energetic commitment of at least 3 months. Note that there will be no refunds for unused time, sessions, or early withdrawal.
This IS a highly curated group, so the questions may take some thought/time. All questions are required, but I have not marked them that way so that you can start the form and come back to it as you need to complete it. Any questions that are not applicable just say "n/a." I will consider the application complete once you say it is at the very bottom.
Please complete the application is 12/1/20 -- I will let you know whether you've been selected by 12/10 or sooner.
Please reach out if you have any questions!
