I love it when a plan comes together


 
The leader of the old TV sitcom, The A Team,  the character Hannibal used to say that he 
 

“loves when a plan comes together.”  

 
I learned early that podcasting helps the podcaster speak better.  I needed it.  I have written seven books but have to be conscious of my diction, delivery and vocabulary when speaking publicly.
 
I wasn’t alone.  I passed on my quietness to my son.  A lifestyle martial artist who is as kind as he is fit.  I wanted him to be better than I so I inspired him to create a podcast about his passions.  
 
Of course he scoffed.  Of course he wasn’t sure.  He trusted me.  And I have been podcasting since 2007 and he has seen and heard me learn the craft, struggle with a smile and overcome even when he thought I had it all together.  I know I didn’t.  
 
The original Hannibal was a great leader that went against the Romans.  He was bold and hyperbolic. He is one of my heroes.  Hannibal was a Tunisian who commanded Carthage’s main army against Rome during the Second Punic War.  I channel that energy when I need to.  I created WarriorCast for my son.  I thought it was a great name.  I snagged the URL and held on to it even when he quit on me.  I am glad I did.  He is jamming now.
 
He just hit his 51st  episode this week, alone.  Did you know we tried it before? 
 

Third time is a charm.

 
The first time it was the two of us.  The second time it was with his best friends.  For a brief moment it was just me as I pushed through.  Refusing to let it go.
 
 
Now I just produce it.  I am editing it less.  Now I let him hear some of his “ummms,” and sounds so that he will correct it himself.  I mentor him on the stuff I’ve learned from attending podcasting conferences and roundtables.  Slowly though.  Nobody likes a no it all.  And it is always harder to influence someone that lived with you.  Strangers adopt wisdom faster.  
 
On episode 51, he got a college mate of his to produce a theme song for him that I chopped up to make it podcast ready.  He got a chance to interview one of his heroes of YouTube fame, Sean Fagan from The May Thai Guy, live from Thailand.

  2. Marcos Maidana wears Mayweather tooth in his chain Instagram live training

Podcasting and coaching my son has paid off.  I love it when a plan comes together.
