  • Meet podcasting legends, life partners, and transformation coaching team Mieke and JC Doornick (a.k.a Chicken and Dragon) as we discuss getting started podcasting with very basic tools, and a simple desire to have your voice heard. Mieke (Chicken) provides commentary on the power of podcasting to connect with niche audiences, and how perfectionism can hold you back. JC (Dragon) brings balance to the equation, discussing the importance of delegation, and how not being perfect can still result in growth. While in a perfect world, content and quality are both important, focusing on content, message, and consistency are more important over the long term.

    Together we have a deep conversation about the mental health of podcasters and of the general public. Mieke shares her knowledge about acute stress, PTSD, the Pandemic, and how isolation is causing anxiety, creating a greater need to build and maintaining connection with one another. We learn how JC conquered his anxiety of public speaking with what Mieke points out is essentially "exposure therapy".

    We even get a peek behind the curtain of the healthy relationship that Mieke and JC built, from the cute stories of how they became known as Chicken and Dragon to their daily commitments to spend personal time together, conversing and connecting as they begin and end each day technology-free. 

    Dr. JC Doornick “Dragon” comes from a fascinating life and family history full of pioneers in the entertainment industry and professional athletes. Later in life becoming a servant to the people as a Doctor of Chiropractic and Cofounder of a worldwide Humanitarian relief organization serving the third world with health, education, housing and food.

    Dragon frequently takes the stage and speaks to live audiences upwards of 11,000. With their two sons and adopted daughter “Duckie” they travel the world creating memories and seeking adventure and experiences. The Dragon represents that version of yourself you don’t believe is possible and the RISE UP WITH DRAGON PODCAST is all about unlocking and freeing people from their programmed mental prisons and back on track dreaming big. You can look forward to bigger and better things including the world’s greatest story ever told in the release of his upcoming book.

    Mieke Doornick, “Mee-kah”, aka (Chicken 🐔) is a master’s level student at Northwestern University and is currently working towards her qualification as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). Mieke holds a BA degree in Drama from The South African School of Motion Picture Medium (AFDA) in South Africa and trained as a professional actor and voice-over artist at both The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts (NYCDA) in New York and The British American Drama Academy (BADA) in London. After graduating, Mieke moved to South Korea where she became the head of the English department at Dongducheon Sincheon Elementary School. She taught both English and Performing Arts to students in grades one through six.

    She strives to establish a sincere and dependable environment for the clients she serves by encouraging a trusting, personalized, and collaborative space. She applies a strengths-based, person-centered approach embedded in a psychodynamic framework, but also has a substantial interest in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) – a form of therapy which concentrates on acceptance, emotional regulation, and strengthening skills to cope with challenging situations. She is a member of both the American Counseling Association (ACA) and The Association for Creativity in Counseling (ACC).

    For the past three years, Mieke has practiced as a certified health and transformation coach, and together with her husband, is currently expanding their health coaching company to Singapore and Hong Kong.

You'll discover how Podfest Expo is now one of the largest events in the universe of podcasting, integrating international communities with both their in-person and virtual events. They discuss the state of podcasting today, the fact that a lot of money is being dumped into podcasting now, how podcasters can ensure they don't podfade, the challenge of competing with celebrity hosted shows, and how you can stand the test of time in the world of podcasting. You'll learn the secrets behind community development, what Chris has personally found to be most effective, and how you should never overlook the talent that is right under your nose -- in the very community you have worked to develop.

    About Chris Krimitsos:

    Chris Krimitsos holds the Guinness World Records™ title for the largest attendance for a virtual podcasting conference in one week, and is a leading expert on podcasting and on-demand audio. His international conference, PodFest, is the longest-running continuous in-person podcasting event in the world and attracts thousands of attendees from over 50 countries each year. Running parallel with that event, Chris also successfully birthed VidFest, as part of his efforts to build the home for all creators.

    With two decades and over 2,000 live events under his belt, Chris has worked with the world’s most influential voices in marketing, audio, and technology. Those experiences inspired his best-selling book, Start Ugly, which has quickly become the go-to guide for entrepreneurs and influencers who are beginning their creative journey.

    He’s not just an educator though. His penchant for being an on-demand innovator is seen in Chris’ own Kid-Friendly Podcast Network having garnered over a million podcast downloads. As a podcast consultant and coach, he has helped ventures such as the Women’s Meditation Network grow to millions of monthly downloads.

  • Have you been wondering if the topic of your show is too narrow, too small, or too niche? Podcasts with incredibly narrow topics often thrive. These “super niche” shows activate a community and compel real engagement in a way that podcasts with a broader audience simply can’t. 

    In this episode we introduce you to Bailey Bauman, host and creator of the Cloth Diaper Podcast, which has recorded 96 episodes to date. Bailey Bouwman has successfully cultivated an audience of 2.3K subscribers on YouTube and a Podcaster with a VERY ENGAGED audience of 300 listeners or more. With audiences that span from her native Canada to the Far East, Bailey reaches passionate people from all over the globe. Through her podcasting and vlogging efforts, Bailey has become a “go-to” within the cloth diapering community. She is deeply involved in the formation of a new industry association that will likely emerge in 2022 and which seeks to bring cloth diapering back into the mainstream. 

    Corinna Bellizzi interviews Bailey Bauman as they discuss how and why cultivating an engaged audience is so important, the types of tools they use to market to these audiences, and the importance of “merch” or branded merchandise to cultivate a deeper connection with inspired audience members, guests, and affiliates. Topics discussed include:

  • This week, Corinna Bellizzi introduces Carolyn Kiel of the Beyond 6 Seconds Podcast. They talk about why Carolyn began her podcasting journey almost 4 years ago — because she wanted to tell the story beyond the first impression of the first 6 seconds. Her belief is that when you dig deeper, you reveal the truth.

    They discuss their podcasting journeys and how each works to peek behind the veil of social media to tell compelling stories. They also share key takeaways from She Podcasts Live, where they recorded this show in person in October 2021.  

    About Carolyn Kiel: Carolyn Kiel is a full-time instructional designer of corporate training initiatives. In her free time she hosts the Beyond 6 Seconds podcast, where she has interviewed more than 100 entrepreneurs, creatives and CEOs about the big challenges they’ve faced, and how these experiences have shaped their lives and identities.

    Introductory Note: This is an in-person interview that I recorded when I was in Arizona for She Podcasts Live in October. I enjoyed living in the moment, connecting with other vibrant and incredible women. It was an incredible experience, and one I’m most thankful for. She Podcasts Live inspired me to work to build a stronger community of podcasters that collaborate and support one another. We’re doing this with our fellow Femcasters because we believe that it is only through collaboration that we can crash through that glass ceiling and change the world.

    So I hope you’ll listen to this episode with that lens and think about what you can do to help elevate the voices of others around you.
