Here at The Podcast Accelerator HQ, We Believe Proof Speaks Louder Than Any Promise We Could Ever Make. And luckily, we’ve got plenty of it.
What if a powerful platform to attract the income and impact your daydreams are made of… were nothing more than a microphone, an internet connection, and a supportive team walking you the process step-by-step?
It’s not a riddle, it’s your future podcast-powered reality.
You’ve spent a lifetime PREPARING to play a bigger game and build something bigger than yourself.
Waiting your turn on the sidelines is no longer an option.
Staying quiet, creating magic and impact behind the scenes, being the best kept secret in your industry… it’s no longer enough.
And you know it better than anyone.
You know now is the time…
… to stop playing small.
… to share your hard won wisdom, your message, your one of a kind voice and vision far and freaking wide.
… to blast past your limiting beliefs, kick imposter syndrome to the curb, and step into the life of purpose you came here to live.
From this point forward, consider the mystery of how you’ll do all of the above officially solved.
Your purpose-driven podcast is how, and here’s why:
3 reasons sharing your voice and vision with a podcast is the key to bringing your big dreams to life.
Let’s face it, when it comes to getting your message out there, gaining traction, building an audience, and creating serious clout, and maybe even changing lives — you’ve got no shortage of options. From blogging to YouTube channels, social media to writing a book, you’re living in the age of the content buffet.
But competition and guessing your way to success isn’t your idea of a good time. You want to do what works. You want to create real connection and intimacy. And you don’t want your effort to feel ephemeral.
Lucky for you the podcasting world is growing like crazy, but it’s still early enough in the game for YOU to come in as an early adopter with massive impact.
In the last three years, the number of people listening to podcasts on the regular has increased by over 54% (in the US alone) with over 130 million+ monthly listeners on a global scale.
But the best part about your soon-to-be-podcast-audience → besides the fact that it’s growing exponentially ← is the fact that they’re committed and loyal: over 80% of people listen to each episode in its entirety.
(Ain’t nobody flippin’ through the channels here, friend…)
And that’s because a podcast gives you…
Your podcast is the most intimate way to connect with people who are genuinely interested in what you have to say.
Especially because you’ll literally be able to whisper your words of inspiration, motivation and enlightenment right into their ears while they wash their dishes, walk their dogs, commute (if Covid hasn’t turned their commute into a walk-into-the-other-room sort of thing), exercise, and otherwise multitask.
It’s a chance for your one-of-a-kind-message to make a difference without forcing your audience to stay stuck to their screens.
Even more importantly, it’s your chance to go deep with your peeps and share actual teachings, stories, and transformation.
Rather than social media sized tidbits of your genius (not to throw any shade on social media → it just can’t hold a candle to the depths of connection your podcast will create for you), you’ll be giving your audience the full-meal deal.
They’ll get to know you, trust you, love you, and be SO ready to invest in you with full confidence that you’ve got the goods to take them to where they want to be.
Because you’ve already shown them the depths of your wisdom and connected to them in a meaningful way.
Which leads us to your podcast’s epic potential for…
It pays to podcast in so many ways, friend.
Your podcast gives you the excuse *ahem* mandate to pursue your purpose, follow your passion, and own your voice (even if you don’t really like what it sounds like… yet!)
It lets you immerse yourself in interesting conversations with people you admire and want to support.
And sets you up as an expert and authority in your field. Whichever field you happen to be in → or pivoting towards.
Not only that, but your podcast is the platform you need to reach out to and meet your heroes. Because it puts you on an even playing field with the people you admire and gives you the leverage to make sure they say “Heck Yes!” to your invitation to a meaningful conversation!
And some of those conversations could turn into business collaborations, joint ventures, exciting opportunities, and much, much more.
It’s not all about the money, but it is a little about the money. Take a look at some of the ways that podcasting has helped generate more income for our podcasters:
Joseph McClendon III knew he wanted a podcast for 2.5 years but it didn’t get done. He thought there were too many complications and moving pieces to get it done right.
“I wanted somebody who had been there, done that, and could take care of me the right way. Michelle and Ginni showed me not just how to do it, but in a few short weeks, you have a published podcast with everything. It was brilliant. Now is the time!”
Your podcast is the perfect way for you to grow and interact with yours!
Because you know 80% of listeners are sticking around for the whole episode and it’s also a great place for you to funnel the people who love you onto your email list where you can continue to nurture and eventually sell to them.
We don’t mean to brag or anything…
But a bunch of our grads (who only started podcasting last year) are already monetizing their podcasts With book deals, epic business collaborations, and (yes!) sponsorships.
One of them even doubled his revenue in 2020, after being forced to shut down his brick and mortar business.
The opportunities for your business are limitless. Even if you haven’t got a business yet…
Because following your passion and pursuing your purpose will lead you into a state of flow and alignment with what you’re meant to be doing. Before long you’ll have listeners DMing you in gratitude, in hopes of securing your 1:1 help, and jumping into any offers you’ve already got!
Then, of course, there are the sponsorship and ad opportunities that will come your way once you’ve grown your audience.
While we can’t promise you’ll be able to monetize right off the bat… podcast ad revenue is predicted to hit $4 BILLION in 2024. Up from $3 million in 2017.
That’s a 424% increase in revenue in 5 years.
And word on the cloud (‘cause that’s where your podcast lives right?) is that 81% of podcast listeners pay attention to podcast ads → which is pretty amazing when you compare it to the 63% of people who claim to sometimes or always ignore TV commercials!
You’ve got big dreams and an important message. And maybe you’ve been thinking about starting a podcast for a while now.
You understand that having a platform to share your message far and wide has the potential to help you support and grow your community and your business in a meaningful way.
Not to mention the fact that there’s almost nothing you love more than exploring topics you’re passionate about and delving deeply into big ideas.
But something’s been holding you back from pressing play on your biggest dreams…
… Maybe you’re afraid of how much time it might take to create something you’re truly proud of.
… Maybe you’ve been down the rabbit hole trying to figure out all that dang tech but ended up even more confused than when you started.
… Maybe you’re not *quite* comfortable with the sound of your own voice and the idea of sharing it with the whole freaking world scares you more than you want to admit.
… Maybe you’re overwhelmed by all of the moving pieces and not exactly sure where to start → we’re talking mics, cover art, show notes, editing, finding guests, asking them the right questions, dreaming up a compelling title, figuring out Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google, Stitcher… the list goes on and on, doesn’t it?
… And maybe there’s that imposter syndrome rearing its ugly head, leading you to wonder “Who am I to have my own podcast?”
Good grief, that’s enough to stop just about anyone from launching on their own! No wonder most people only talk about launching a podcast and never actually do it…
You can do it. You don’t have to let all those maybe’s hold you back because with podcasting you build the authority you deserve and grow your business. Take it from one of our incredible graduates…
“Launching my podcast was a big step. It was scary, wonderful, and exciting all at the same time. Ginni and Michelle made it so simple it was like plug and play. It’s really one of the best investments I’ve made in my business and worth the money 10-fold.”
Here’s the deal: no matter what’s been holding you back from achieving your goals, it is not your fault.
Change is HARD. Because the human brain is programmed to conserve energy and do what’s easy. In fact, in his 2005 study Change or Die, Alan Deutschman discovered that 9/10 people won’t change their behavior.
Even if their life depends on it.
And that’s all your imposter syndrome, limiting beliefs, and procrastination problems are, my friend. Bad habits.
Thought patterns that have become habitual behaviors.
The good news?
All you need to finally free yourself from every single block that’s been holding you back (from launching your podcast or anything else you desire and deserve) is guidance, support, and accountability!
Mic check! Tap, tap… this thing is ON and it’s time for you to tune in and turn it up!
You could be pressing play on the purpose-powered podcast of your dreams.
You could be interviewing your heroes. Sharing your unique perspective, your stories, your humor, and your support far and wide across the globe.
You could be waking up in the morning to DMs from strangers whose lives you’ve touched, dream clients who want to work with you, and other visionaries who want to swap ideas or collaborate.
Heck! You could even be well on your way to becoming the Oprah of Podcasting for your industry. Teaming up with people you’ve always admired and creating possibilities for yourself that you’ve never even imagined.
You’re not totally clear on your why → Action breeds clarity, friend. And you’ll never get clear if you stay stuck in procrastination mode.
This whole podcasting thing feels really complicated → All you’ve got to do is take one brave baby step after another.
You’ve hardly got any following on any platform → That’s the magic of the podcasting world. Put yourself out there and you’ll be amazed at how fast your people find you.
Because with our help, none of that stuff will even remotely stop you from seeing your name on all the leading podcasting apps, connecting with your soon to be industry expert peers, and most importantly taking your message to the masses.
“I am ecstatic that I was able to join The Podcast Accelerator. It’s been an amazing experience. Everything is hands-on, making sure you’re on task every step of the way. I really needed that. Make sure you take advantage of the opportunity!”
Meet the masterminds behind this one of a kind program…
TV Host turned successful entrepreneur, master coach and mentor, and host of the Fire and Soul podcast.
I’ve helped thousands scale an online impact and worked with globally known entrepreneurs and high-performance experts across a broad spectrum of industries including a US Presidential candidate…
But even I hesitated when faced with the prospect of creating my own podcast. Despite having been on TV, my imposter syndrome was off the chain and demanding, “Who do you think you are to start a podcast?”
However, deep in my soul I felt called to serve and make a real difference in this world so I decided to feed my faith over fear. Only I had no idea where or how to begin. In fact, after months on the Google bar, I was more confused and overwhelmed than before my search began.
But as fate would have it, I found Ginni and six months later, Fire and Soul came to life. Now, 180+ episodes later, hundreds of thousands of downloads, and 6-figure biz collaborations with guests later, I can’t imagine what my life would look like without this incredible journey.
Today I’m on a wholehearted mission to empower others to break through anything holding them back from their personal power and full self expression. And it starts by helping guide your podcast dreams come true.
With a career spanning over a decade in broadcast radio, Ginni has become a distinct voice in podcasting.
Moving to Australia from Sri Lanka when she was two years old, Ginni was shy and timid, in her first weeks at school and didn’t speak at all. It was only through the encouragement of her teachers and best friend that she found the confidence to speak up. Ginni studied Media and Creative Arts at La Trobe University in Melbourne. One summer break, she answered an ad for a trainee scheme at Joy 94.9 FM. Ginni wanted in, but only as long as it was behind the scenes! Jump-cut to one month later, and Ginni was firmly in front of the mic… and loving every minute. Hosting two prime time morning shows on Joy FM, The Hump Day Crew and Rise Up Radio. During this time, she brightened the morning commute for thousands of listeners in Melbourne and later appeared on LA Talk Radio.
When Ginni first visited New York, she fell in love with the city’s energy, and the unusual synergies she found there between arts, culture, and creativity. It inspired her to take a fresh look at her career. She loved everything about radio – the people, the creativity, the intimacy – but she also loved new media and tech. How could she unite these two passions?
Now, hosting the multi-award nominated podcast, The Ginni Show, people far and wide took notice…
Now she’s the founder the owner of Ginni Media, a leading podcast production house, where I am honored to work with incredible clients including Allure, Conde Nast, Architectural Digest, WIRED, and Siemens, and produce podcasts like Stay Grounded, Vanessa Wants to Know, Messy and Magnificent. And also the co-founder of Metro Podcast Studio in NYC and the Podcast Accelerator.
We have launched over 150 podcasts since 2020
And we’re here to guide and support you to launch *your* own.
But let’s face it, you’ve got no shortage of other options — here’s why we think the Podcast Accelerator is your best bet
Press Play on Your Big Picture Action Plan
Your foundation starts here with the perfect blend of big dreams and small action steps that’ll have you primed and ready to start your journey and reach your goals.
No great feat was ever accomplished without the foundation of a clear vision, a roadmap that outlines exactly how you’ll get from A to Z.
From mindset to tech and getting started essentials — this week is all about getting you hyper clear, beyond excited, and all set to dive in and make the podcast magic happen!
Create a budget friendly pro podcaster setup: from mics and headphones to pop filters and ring lights, you’ll find out what you need, how to choose it, how much it costs, and where to order it from.
The answer to the BIG burning question every future podcast host starts off with “what kind of podcast should I create?”
Get clear on your own personal podcast vision and a map out exactly how you’ll get there with our help — no guessing games, luck, or sheer determination required.
Connect with your new crew of diverse, talented, smart, and sometimes downright hilarious podcast peers. We promise you’ll feel so supported, encouraged, and downright inspired by the big hearted brainiacs you meet in this program. Not to brag, but we attract the best people 😉
The podcast equivalent of packing your bags for the trip of a lifetime (Greece, Bali, Turkey?! We’re daydreaming about travel too, boo.) — we’ll walk you through getting that coveted Apple ID, the one that silently states you’re no longer just a consumer, you’re a creator. Next, you’ll get set up on a podcast distribution platform and learn all you need to know about using Zoom to hit ‘record’ once you’re ready.
“The only reason I have a podcast is the Podcast Accelerator. They walked me through, the name, who’d have as guests, what typ of podcast-got me from zero to launch in a few weeks! ” — Trisha G host of Everyday Awesome Podcast
Where Your Why, Your Mission, and Your Message Start to Make Sense
Effective communication and confidence (2 essential podcast ingredients) don’t just happen, they come from clarity on who you are, who you serve, and what you want to be known for — by the end of this week, you’ll have the answers.
Raise your hand if ALL of the above feels just a little overwhelming (or a lot)? 🙋♀️🙋♂️
Fair enough, but after working through what we have in store for you this week you’ll be overjoyed.
Michelle will coach you through the same process she uses with her private clients to clear away the mental clutter, confusion, and mindset obstacles standing between you and a podcast that represents all you have to offer.
Maybe you’re thinking, “What does any of that have to do with podcasting?” and the answer is this program is about so much more than just launching a podcast.
It’s about learning how to be consistent, how to fearlessly express yourself, how to stretch your comfort zone, and awaken to a world of new possibilities you never even knew existed. We’re so committed to making that a reality for you, friend.
With that said, here’s how we’ll take all that mindset stuff and turn it into tangible essential tasks that you can confidently check off your podcast launch to-do list.
Finalize the name of your podcast (you better believe this is when it all starts to feel real!) — reminder: you do not have to do this alone! We’re here to give you feedback and ideas, and it’s likely your ideal listeners are inside our community already and willing to share their 2 cents too.
Figure out *exactly* where to find the people who vibe with you, cultivate your community, and get your meaningful message out there to the millions of listeners who need it. Once you’re clear here you can decide where your podcast will reside in Apple’s podcast categories and subcategories.
Draft your preliminary podcast description — we’ll help you make sure you’re calling in your ideal listeners with an irresistible breakdown of everything your show’s about (if writing makes you sweat, you better believe we’ve got some killer tricks up our sleeves!)
Get super clear on the core themes of your podcast and how they’ll connect with your overall vision for your brand. This is where you take what lights you up, combine it with who you want to talk to, and commit to showing up powerfully and consistently in your newly found niche. (Knowing this is what makes sitting down to record your podcast a piece of cake moving forward).
Make a plan for what you’ll be talking about in your first episode and secure your first guest interview! Seriously, by this 2nd week, you’ll have created major momentum. By this point, most of our students are 10000x more clear and confident than when they first started.
“Now I finally have a platform where I am open and able to serve millions of people all over the world to overcome their challenges and see success on the other side.” — Christie Love Host of Be Seen Be Loved
Turn Your Vision Into a Reality — It’s Brand Building Time!
Put on your creative direction hat and choose your custom made podcast cover art plus all the other visuals that will attract your perfect listeners before you say a word.
Don’t judge a podcast by its cover… unless it’s your future professionally designed and purposefully on brand podcast cover — in that case, you’ll WANT people to judge.
Save yourself the countless hours you’d otherwise spend trying to master Photoshop OR the mucho dinero you’d hire a graphic designer for — we’ve got you covered.
Once you’re clear on your why, your mission, and who you want to attract, it’s time to turn your new found clarity and inspiration into visually compelling cover art that calls out to your community to come and listen.
We’ll take a deep dive into the details of what makes a podcast cover stand out amongst the masses. Then you’ll complete a few easy tasks → choose a couple of photos, some cover art inspo, and your favorite fonts… (Pinterest is about to become your new favorite hangout).
Once you’ve put your vision for the visuals together, our professional design team will get busy behind the scenes creating two polished cover art options for you to choose from. All you have to do is choose your favorite and share it far and wide on social and all of the podcast platforms.
By the end of Week 3, you’ll:
Understand what makes for a compelling podcast cover and what you want yours to communicate to your potential listeners. Your first impression happens before your ideal listener hears you utter a word. Together, we’ll make sure you nail it.
Choose your cover art inspiration — this IS as fun as it sounds. You’ll put together a collection of visuals that light you up and capture the essence of what you want to show the world.
Your branding journey has only just begun, it’s time to choose your fonts and photos that match your vibe, your vision, and the type of person you want to attract with your podcast.
Hand it all over to the Ginni Media team so they can create the perfect cover art for you behind the scenes. You’ll be presented with 2 options that perfectly represent the vision for your future podcast et voila, one BIG step closer to ‘pressing play’!
“I knew that I wanted to start my podcast, but had no idea where to start or what to do. Then I found out about Michelle and Ginni’s podcast accelerator. I jumped in head first and couldn’t have made a better decision.
The professionalism, accountability, and genuine care that Michelle, Ginni, and Sarah provide is top-notch.
They take you from concept to completion in 8 amazing weeks, and everything is first-class. I really felt like they went above and beyond for everyone in the group. The value you get for the price that you pay is unbelievable.
Truly, if you’re thinking of starting a podcast, doing it with the help of Michelle and Ginni is the only way to go! Adam Kruger host of Enhanced Living Podcast”
Your Message, Music, & Recording Mindset
Turn your message into a compelling podcast intro and outro that draws listeners in and gets them to subscribe, rate, review, download, and binge all of your episodes. (Psst… it’s not too good to be true and it’s ALL going down this week!)
Think of your podcast intro like a blurb on the back of a book that tells someone whether this is right for them or not. Attention spans are more limited than ever, which is why we’ll tell you exactly what to include in your 30-second first impression.
By now, you’ll be clear on your goals for your podcast. If those goals include getting ample 5-star reviews, rising up the charts, increasing your listenership, and building your audience, then we’ve got the secrets to make all of the above a whole lot easier.
By mastering a compelling episode outro and learning how to create episode soundbites that inspire curiosity and clicks, you’ll set yourself up to reach, and maybe even exceed, your big podcasting goals.
And lastly, you’ll put it all together with tunes that fit your brand and your vibe (plus you’ll learn how to navigate the ins and outs of music royalties!)
By the end of Week 4, you’ll:
Draft, practice, and record a compelling intro and outro that tells your listeners who you are, what they can expect, and why they should keep their headphones on.
Add another tech tool to your belt without spending endless hours Googling or watching YouTube videos in sporadic fits of frustration. We’ll walk you through recording software options and help you choose the one that’s right for you.
Have your perfect podcast music selected and cued up (happy dance breaks optional but highly recommended!) — with zero worries about royalties.
Know exactly how to pull the juiciest parts of every episode out to create quick, quippy, and compelling soundbites that you can use to easily promote your podcast and grow your listenership.

Launching my Podcast was one of the best days of my life.

Not only how to craft compelling headlines, titles, and subject lines but you’ll have access to over 650 proven to perform podcast titles to run with (that should keep you going for a while!)
“They make you the hero. They truly are the guides guiding you through every step of the way. Figuring out the technical pieces, how to curate your content, and most importantly, the work with your mindset. They have this magic touch to help you push through any fears you have about sharing your voice or message.” – Steve Lawrence host of Ignited Learning with Steve Lawrence Podcast

We don’t mean to brag or anything…
But the Ginni media team is the absolute best. And we promis that they’ll sort out any and every podcasting tech question that you may have. No matter how big or small.
“You taught me something really important. I was claiming, ‘Oh, my age…you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!’ And you took it out of me. I changed my story.”
Wait wait wait…
Did we mention that in addition to all of the above you also get your very own professional podcast concierge?
This is a white-glove, high-touch, high-impact experience where you’ll be supported every step of the way by Ginni (your tech and production expert) and Michelle (your mindset and confidence activator), and your very own podcast concierge — wondering what exactly that is?
Meet Talia, your white-glove service Podcast Accelerator accountability guardian angel…
“As client concierge, my mission is to uphold the ease and grace experience of the Podcast Accelerator by providing white-glove service to all members, both inside and outside of the live calls.”
Practically speaking, this means that I’m the go-to person to answer members’ questions as they work through their weekly deliverables via the Podcast Accelerator Facebook Group.
My job also includes initially setting up everyone’s Google Drives, tracking the completion of deliverables, holding members accountable to their commitments, and virtually holding their hands as they cross the finish line each week.
During our live calls, I work as an extra set of eyes to make sure everyone is seen and heard, and no question falls through the cracks.
I also assist with managing the Ginni Media team behind the scenes, including communicating any updates from PA members, setting up and overseeing our project management software, and performing quality checks on the content produced.

Add ‘em up, friend. If you said “Yes” to 5 of the above…
You can do this. You were made for this!
Your podcast is a portal to building a powerful platform.
A portal to incite you to rise up and step into your role as a leader and demand the authority you deserve.
A portal for you to empower yourself and others to awaken, live more fully, and have the conversations that matter.
A portal for you to get your one-of-a-kind message out there to those who need you most. Wherever they are.
You have true value and so many gifts to offer and the truth is, you need to find a way to share your magic with the people you’re here to help, change, and impact.
The teachers, thought leaders, visionaries, and change makers that you admire all started exactly where you are now. With a vision, a message, and the knowledge that they’re here for more.
The only difference between you and your heroes is that they bet on themselves and built a platform to share their message. Despite their fears.
Because, friend, we are all afraid. But success lives on the other side of fear. And if you don’t face your fears, you’ll never become the human being you came here to be.
Our own podcasts catapulted us into lives we had never even dared to dream of. They gave us autonomy, authority, and financial independence. They empowered us to become leaders, connected us to our heroes, and opened up a world of possibilities on every level of existence.
If you’re reading this, you can do the same. So what are you waiting for?! Let’s press play on your dreams and make it happen!
