I have got to find a way to get paid to do this. Because I am loving Lounging with LannaLee.

I recorded my 11th guest today – actually I had 2 guests (Erin Dow and Chrystie Corns) – and it was a blast. There is something to this art of conversation. I love the connection with my guests, learning new things about them and even sharing things about myself. The laughter is cleansing.

Earlier this week, I had an epiphany on how I could describe the show. And, for the life of me, I cannot remember what it was. Now, I was in the ladies room when I got said epiphany and did not have a pen or paper to write down what I came up with. I trust it will come back to me if it really is as awesome as I thought it was.

One of the things that becomes clearer and clearer to me every day is that I need not worry about what other people are doing or replicating someone else’s success. Because I can’t. I’m working on instinct and intuition with the understanding that if I keep doing what I’m doing, the path I need to follow will make itself known. If I “build it, they will come.

So I’m building it.

And Lounging with LannaLee is going to grow. I have a new theme song by rinski from fiverr. I will be playing around with holding a monthly live streaming events using Google+. I will find ways to engage more with my audience. People are listening, but I’d like to have more listeners. How do I reach people who would be interested in this podcast? I’m trying to figure that out.

Along with the Google+ idea, I am thinking of doing a Kickstarter. In a couple of months, I will have a better idea of what kind of Kickstarter event I will host. I have lots of ideas, but none really feels like the “right” one yet. Soon I will be starting to transcribe the episodes. I have an idea of what I want to do with it, but not sure if it’s the right one. My intuition is telling me to transcribe them, and so I will.

After we recorded guest Rachel Flehinger’s episode she asked me what I was learning from our guests. That is what I’m thinking about. What am I getting out of it? So far I would say I’m getting great conversation, personal connection and inspiration for me to be a better person.

Have you listened to any (all) of the Lounging with LannaLee episodes? Did you learn anything? What did you get out of it? Let me know, how can I make the show better?
