This podcast was a first for us on many fronts.
We cried, we laughed and we were so inspired by this amazing guest.
Cliff Ravenscraft, known as the “podcast answer man” at PodcastAnswerMan.com left the security of a family owned insurance company to purse his dream.
Even though he had been podcasting for several years before he took the plunge, the next 9 months of self-employment proved to be the toughest financially and emotionally for him and his family.
He never stopped believing in himself and his wife encouraged him to continue on.
The result is nothing short of amazing as now Cliff brings in on average $20,000-$50,000 a month from his online business.
Cliff’s story isn’t about the money, though. It’s about his ability to witness to thousands of people and really make a difference in their lives.
Cliff is an amazing individual and I feel blessed that we had a chance to interview him.
Note: this is one of our last podcasts where we were still trying to figure out our recording setup. My voice at the beginning is a bit muffled because my mouth was way too close to the mic. Doh! Cliff’s audio is amazing though and I promise it’s worth listening to. Thanks for your patience in us trying to figure this podcasting thing out. 🙂
