This week marks the 4th anniversary of my podcast, Getting Work To Work. With over 414 episodes, including 150 interviews and 264 monologues, I’ve met people I would never have met without this show. I’ve also heard amazing stories, found inspiration to adapt and evolve my business, and discovered my voice along the way.
Early in my career, I had a lot of ideas, but struggled to bring them to life. I was a dreamer and a talker, rarely a doer. It wasn’t until this podcast where I found the confidence to explore, experiment, and work through fear.
To every listener of Getting Work To Work, thank you. It means the world to me to know that people all over the world are listening. Thank you to everyone who has shared an episode with their friends or colleagues, left a review, or sent me an email! I value your support and encouragement.
To every guest, thank you for showing up, sharing your stories, making the time fly, and encouraging the listeners. I’ve learned so much from every single one of you.
To Bruce Elgort, your encouragement from day 1, episode 1, is a huge reason why the show is still going strong four years later. I also want to thank you for loaning me your podcasting gear. I’ll give it back one day, I promise.
To Lindsey Norberg, what you said in class four years ago still resonates with me to this day and why I continue producing the show. Thank you for believing that what I had to say mattered to a broader audience.
To Heather Crank, thank you for being a champion of the show and consistently sharing episodes that resonate with you.
To Kyle Shold, your Monster Chris Podcast Poster is as awesomely impressive today as when I first glimpsed the initial sketches. I can’t wait for the next one!
I also want to acknowledge the contribution of my dear friend, Brandie Kajino. She took my rough title of The Get To Work Podcast and turned it into something infinitely better. I wish she was still here to see how far I ran with her suggestion. Thank you.
Finally, to anyone who wants to create their own show, whether it’s a podcast or a video series, don’t let fear or doubt stop you. You can do this too! Find people who will support you, champion your creative endeavors, and never stop sharing what you are creating. If you need encouragement, reach out, I’d love to help you any way I can.
Here’s to another four years and beyond of Getting Work To Work.
