ABOUT guest Cliff Ravenscraft

what is podcasting








In January 2008, I left my career in insurance, after 11 years, to pursue my passion in podcasting full-time. It was the first time in my life that I felt like I honestly knew what it mean to LIVE BY FAITH. The first year was extremely difficult at times (Details Here). Though my wife got her husband back and my three children, got their dad back. The second year was much better than our first (Details Here).

Today, I make a very decent living as a podcast producer and as a Podcasting and New Media consultant/coach. I have produced more than 2,800 individual episodes of more than 20 differentshows, and I’m effectively sharing my life and ministering to tens of thousands of people around the world.

I am a firm believer that if you Pursue Your Passion, The Money Will Follow!

      Hi Becca, thank you so much for watching and commenting. I couldn’t agree more – find you passion, become a master at it and build a business. Thanks again, Shelia

      Hello Sandy, thanks so much for watching and commenting! Cliff is amazing and such a giving person. His podcasting courses are really good! Thanks again,Shelia

  • I love this! I’m about to start my own podcast show and came across Cliff a week ago and now I’m totally convinced to learn from him.

    I loved the question about women in podcasting. In my opinion, women are projectionists and wait until they do everything ‘right’. I know so many women entrepreneurs who want to get into podcasting but wait or put it off until they become better. My question is: better at what?how? I started my video show last month, it’s very amateur, I’m not a professional presenter by far! but I love it and want to make it big in my niche so my approach is just do it!

    Thanks for this inspirational interview.

      Hi Katya, thanks so much for tuning in and commenting! Cliff is terrific – I highly recommend his courses. Totally agree with your opinion on women feeling the need to be perfect – I almost didn’t start because I was a little embarrassed by my “Souther Accent”. So happy I did! Please let me know if I can help you in any way. Thanks again,Shelia
