500 Episodes!!! Takeaways From 5 Years of the Podcast

500 episodes! I cannot believe it but here we are 5 years later and 500 episodes later. I didn’t think that the podcast would go this far when I released episode 1 back in 2019 but here we are. I have to say that I owe it to you, the listener. Without the listener finding value somewhere in the podcast, well the motivation probably would have died down at some point. However, the consistent feedback that listeners have learned something through our content has been a great motivator. For this episode, I’m diving into some of my takeaways from the last 500 episodes. I’d love to hear some of yours in the comments as well.

Key Takeaways

  • Step outside your comfort zone. When I started the podcast I was unlikely to volunteer to speak in public, unlikely to volunteer to present in front of a group and even unlikely to attend a networking event or approach someone I didn’t know at an event. The podcast pushed me out of that comfort zone and it has been incredibly rewarding. I’ve now done over 500 interviews with people who essentially started out as strangers, have grown my network immensely and even spoke in public at multiple events. When you get butterflies in your stomach, push forward and do the thing.
  • The warehousing industry is incredibly exciting. Over the last 5 years I have had a unique perspective to see many of the innovations and technology that is pushing our industry further. One of the most exciting parts of this is the fact that many of the cutting edge technologies that are coming into the world are finding practical applications within the warehouse. It’s great to see where technology is meeting classic warehouse processes and making those processes better for the workers themselves.
  • Embrace the warehouse community! One of the reasons I started the podcast was to try and connect with more people in the warehouse and I’m happy to say that there is a thriving community in the space. Many people have been so willing to help me along the way through teaching and connecting. It has been great to be able to build such a helpful network and I encourage you to embrace the community as well. Connect with that person and reach out!

Once again, thank you so much for supporting the podcast! Be sure to stay tuned for the next 500.
