The Biggest Lessons Learned Growing A Podcast

Tune in on your favorite platform below. Subscriberate it and share it with another entrepreneur who needs to hear this!


Joe and Matt started podcasting back in 2010. They’ve had the Business & Blogs show, The Online Income Podcast, Beyond The Hype, Evergreen Wisdom, Authority Insider, and, most recently, The Hustle and Flowchart Podcast. Every other attempt at keeping a podcast running faded away when they struggled to monetize the show or when other business priorities caused them to lose focus on the show. It wasn’t until recently (100 episodes ago) that it all finally “clicked” for them.

Joe and Matt finally figured out the perfect set of systems, processes, team members, and marketing strategies to, not only keep a podcast going, but to make the podcast their “main thing” in their business. Today, the podcast is the main focus of their business. They figured out how to generate 7-figures per year in revenue through strategic podcast marketing and through leveraging their massive network to bring on amazing guests.

Today, the Hustle & Flowchart Podcast is listened to in 102 different countries, is syndicated across pretty much every audio platform, receives tens of thousands of downloads per month, and is talked about as one of (if not the) best business and marketing show. Industry leaders and new entrepreneurs alike claim that the show is having a big impact on them. Matt and Joe pride themselves on having open, transparent, and often vulnerable conversations with their guests, digging deep and pulling out both the mental and tactical elements that make others succeed. They strive to create content with their guests that is more valuable than almost any course on marketing.

Today, they cross the milestone of producing 100 episodes for the Hustle & Flowchart show. In this episode, they reminisce about the past 100 episodes, their favorite moments, the audiences favorite moments, what they’ve learned along the way, how they’ve grown the show, and even talk about what’s coming next for the business to make an even bigger impact on even more people.

This is a fun trip down memory lane with a ton of actionable ideas for anyone with a business.
