Starting a podcast is an underrated growth lever for your business/ career. Some benefits of having a podcast (regardless of how big your audience is) are:

  • Fastest way to build a strong network of smart and successful people
  • Helps you go deep into topics you're curious about and build expertise
  • Helps you gain credibility in your niche/ vertical (like no-code, web3 etc.)
  • Helps you become a very familiar face in your niche - audio is intimate, video is even better
  • Helps you build a distribution channel and an audience which are both superpowers
  • Helps people see the real side of you, if you're vulnerable and authentic, you build trust

Yet most people who WANT TO start a podcast don't know WHERE TO start and HOW TO get going. This masterclass aims to fill in these gaps.

What do you get?

In this 83 minute masterclass, KP will draw from his experience of building a podcast without any prior experience, on the side while balancing a demanding day job. He will also uncover all possible unconventional and creative approaches/ tactics that helped him stand out and build a career of his dreams. The whole masterclass is recorded as a Socratic seminar method where Sharath (the host) interviews KP (the guest expert on the topic) in a thoughtful intellectually stimulating way. The guest expert answers the deep questions often verbally but also leverages slides and visual aids to highlight examples and tactics where relevant.
