f you're anything like me and you love your community, then you might talk about it all the time. Hence is why I do the Good Morning Gwinnett Show 4 days a week live. It's been almost 4 years since I launched the podcast and I love it just as much today as I did when I first launched.
I wanted to be more involved with my community and I love to share stories and podcasting has allowed me to be the voice of my community. When you launch a community podcast people will start to invite you to tables that were unavailable to you before. What you must realize is that podcasting is a big part of new media. As a podcaster you can break a story in a New York minute without having to get approval from anyone. The other great thing about starting a community podcast is that you can become a community partner. You can shine the spotlight on people and places in your community that you love. You can also become a marketing arm for small businesses who don't have the time to start their own podcast.
If there are causes that you care about, you will be able to share those messages with listeners around the world. There is just so much you can do as a community podcaster. The more you talk about your community the more people will look to you for that up to the minute news.
The best part about taking this podcast journey is that you can make your podcast whatever you want it to be. You're not locked into a certain way of doing it. It can be the way you want to serve your community. Just listen to an episode of Good Morning Gwinnett. The way the show is formatted is entertaining, informative and empowering. It's also fun for me to produce, otherwise I would not be going live 4 days a week to do it.
So don't sleep on podcasting. It could change your life and shine the spotlight on your community.
Once again. I'm off to Orlando to share my podcast journey. I've been podcasting since 2009, but it wasn't until 9 years later in 2018 that I got serious about podcasting. Now fast forward to today, I host 2 podcasts and have recorded over 670 hours of audio. Good Morning Gwinnett is the #1 hyperlocal podcast in Georgia. If you want to know how I'm doing this whole podcast thing, I will be speaking at Podfest in Orlando about becoming a community outreach partner by leveraging podcasting and I will be back in Atlanta on that Sunday to speak at the BlkPod Collective conference to speak about being a one woman podcast network and how I do that. So, if you are in Orlando on May 26th stop my session or if you are in Atlanta on May 29th join us. If can't make either, register for Podcast University which happens the following weekend on June 4th virtually. You can register by going to: https://www.PodcastUniversity.training
I've been spending most of this week clearing up projects getting ready for a new year. I'm so excited about the plans I have for Good Morning Gwinnett. I will be moving going into the studio to broadcast the show live from there starting on Monday. This is a big move for me, because I've gotten so comfortable working from home, now I have to create a new habit of getting out of the house by 8:30 so that I will have time to set the show up, but I'm ready to do that.
Some of the things I have planned is to grow a community around Good Morning Gwinnett, that's why I launched the Gwinnett Business Breakfast Club. We will meet the 2nd & 4th Fridays of the month to get together and mastermind over breakfast. I will do a live broadcast to introduce some of the members before we go live on our mastermind. This is exciting to me, because it gives me the opportunity to expand the awareness of the show.
The next thing I'm doing is launching the Monthly Morning Star Award. This gives people the opportunity to nominate someone who brightens their day for a $25 breakfast gift certificate. The next thing I'm launching is the 1st Annual Cereal Eating Contest. I think this will be so fun. The winner of the contest will win $200 and a trophy. The contest will take place on April 23, 2022 at Rhodes Jordan Park in Lawrenceville.
Normally I talk business on the show only on Tuesday, starting in 2022 I will be talking business on each episode in the second segment which starts about 10:45. That segment is called #MillionDollarYear. Some days I will have guest, so that segment will be dedicated to the guest after I read the daily horoscopes.
Hey, everybody. I'm so excited to be back here with you. Again, it's been a minute. It's been a long, long minute since I recorded something to talk business with Audrey, but I'm so happy to announce that I am relaunching talk business with Audrey. Um, and it's going to be every Wednesday. I'm so excited about that.
You know, it was so funny because I was looking at, um, I was looking at him. I didn't want to go on that podcast, which I've been doing now for two years, almost two years. Next month will be two years. I do four days a week podcast and live with music, horoscopes and all that good stuff. But I still was missing like that one thing that was like, okay, I'm missing something. And for me it was talking about business. So I, I decided to, to kill two birds with one stone. And so I decided, you know what, it's time for me to resurrect talk business with Audrey.
And that's where I would be talking to people about business tips and you know how to grow your business, how to start a business, how to get the mindset that you need to have to run a business, because this is not easy, but it's fun. But most of us, some of us, maybe not so much, but for those of us who are diehard entrepreneurs, it is fun. And so I was like, you know what, that's what I'm missing. I'm missing that part. I'm missing the part where I get to talk about this entrepreneurship. I get to tell stories about entrepreneurship. I'm missing that part.
And back in 2018, I was doing my Talk Business With Audrey podcast. And I was like, you know what? I just want to focus on one podcast right now. But then I realized I was missing something and I kept trying to figure out what was I missing? So what I decided to do was I was like, you know what, I'm going to add a business feature to Good Morning Gwinnnett. And then I, then I thought, well, if I'm going to add a business feature, Why not just go ahead and do a Talk Business With Audrey new podcast to kill two birds with one stone. Now, Good Morning, Gwinnett has this business feature, Talk Business With Audrey is resurrected and back on the charts again. And I'm excited about that.
I will be talking about tips, tools, and techniques to help you grow your business and help you start a business, help you get into the right mindset about running a business, because it's not easy. Like I said before, But if you focus and you can decide, you know what it is you want to do, you can definitely do it. Now. There are some ups and downs and you're going to go through and we're going to talk about all of those. I'm going to share some of the things that has happened to me over the last 23 years. Um, because I've been an entrepreneur, just that, just that long, we're going to talk about things like how to market your business, how to launch a podcast, how to use it, podcasts to build your brand, how to launch a TV channel, why you should have a TV channel. And what does it mean to have a TV channel? All of these things that I have learned over the last tweny three years, I'll be sharing with you on Talk Business With Audrey. And this show is going to be syndicated on the Noise Media Network, which is my parent company, um, which encompasses podcasts and television. So hence is why I talked about TV.
So I am so happy to be coming to you every Wednesday. To talk about this and you can look forward to a new video, a new audio every Wednesday on the Good Morning, Gwinnett site. So make sure to tune in and listen, if you have questions, shoot me an email at Audrey@TalkBusinessWithAudrey.biz or shoot me a message if you have a question. And I will answer your question on the air, or just, just, uh, leave a comment on the Talk Business With Audrey website.
So I'm excited to be bringing this back. It's been a long time since I've done it, a live recording. It's about as big as the board, but I'm excited about being in to share all of the great things that I've learned. All of the. Ups and downs that I've faced. How, how I have been able to run this business during the pandemic. You know, some of the tragedies that hit my life that made me shut down for like six months. I mean, it has been a crazy. 2020 has definitely been crazy I'm talking about for real, but nonetheless, I kept moving forward even when I had to stop for a second and take a breath and just breathe and reevaluate my life. I still got back up. I pulled myself back up by the bootstraps and I kept going, and that's what you got to do. And so those are the types of things that I'll be talking about on The Talks Business With Audrey show.
The show will be syndicated across the globe in probably over 150 countries around the world. Cause right now, um, Noise Media Network, which is my parent company. We are in, uh, we are on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon TV and Android TV, as well as mobile apps. So, you know, I love all of them. I love all the technology. That's what I do. I love all the technology. So I make sure that it created all this content where everywhere.
So I'm glad that you stopped by be sure to stop that every Wednesday. Um, Around probably around about four o'clock I'm going to say four o'clock. Cause I know I have to do the podcasts do the recordings and all that good stuff. So every Wednesday around four o'clock, there should be a new episode live. And if it's not a new episode, that means something happened.
Okay. All right. So listen, thank you again for listening. Be sure to just check out the show, follow me on Instagram and all those great places under Good Morning Gwinnett and soon I'll be launching all that stuff probably too, for Talk Business With Audrey. But in the meantime, you can always go to www.TalkBusinessWithAudrey.biz and watch it there. www.TalkBusinessWithAudrey.com is going to be the TV segment. Y'all know, I love all this tech stuff. So when it comes to building a brand, these are all the ways you need to build your brand. I'll be back again shortly.

Until Next Time.
