Welcome to the 400th episode of the Heart-Centred Business Podcast!!400th episode Tash Corbin podcast

I recently found out that only 11% of podcasts make it to 50 episodes, and a further 90% of those do NOT make it past 100 episodes.

Even just the fact that this podcast is still going means that it is in the top 1-2% of podcasts in the world… simply because I keep recording it! In fact, you only need 21 episodes of a podcast to make it into the top 1% these days.

LESSON: You don’t need to record too many podcast episodes for you to be more tenacious and have more staying power than other people.

To celebrate 400 episodes, I recently asked listeners of the podcast to submit questions for this special episode.

We have some fantastic questions about podcasting, business, accessibility, social media, and more.

We are going to have some fun conversations today!

You can find an index of the questions below, along with all the links and information for each person who asked a question. Make sure to go and check them out!

Without further delay, let’s dive into this one!
