How to Create a Bingeable Podcast through Changing Lives with Michelle Glogovac of the My Simplified Life Podcast
You can’t put a price on changing a life and if the opportunity is there for you to do so, then I think it’s your duty to start recording today.
As part of my series of interviews about “5 things you need to know to create a very bingeable podcast”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Michelle Glogovac.
Michelle is THE podcast matchmaker, podcast producer, and host of the My Simplified Life podcast. After an 18 year career in corporate aviation, Michelle discovered her love of all things podcasting and launched her podcasting & PR agency. She works with entrepreneurs and business owners to niche down, grow their businesses, and visibility while ensuring their message reaches the masses. Michelle is a natural relationship maker, which is why her passion for helping experts be interviewed on podcasts is so successful. Michelle is a wife, mom of two, and stepmom of two. She has her B.A. and M.S. in Law and resides in the Bay Area.
Can you tell us a bit of your “personal backstory? What is your background and what eventually brought you to this particular career path?
I thought I was destined to be an attorney from the age of 5 and was even bringing my dad’s briefcase to school in Kindergarten. I attended UC Santa Barbara and was a Law & Society major, but while there I needed a part-time job to help fund my education and extracurricular sport of crew. I ended up at the airport working at an FBO (Fixed Base Operation) which ultimately was the beginning of my 18-year career in corporate aviation. In April 2018, I was laid off from my aviation job and decided I wanted to make a career change that would allow me to be home more with my young children and travel less. At that time, I didn’t even know how to listen to a podcast! Over the course of that summer, I discovered podcasts and was asked by a host if I would start pitching her to be interviewed on podcasts. As they say, the rest is history! I fell in love with the podcasting industry and the fact that podcasts are life-changing for so many.
