Podcast Review: Daily Thoughts for Business

Podcast Review

This week’s Podcast Review is about the podcast, Daily Thoughts for Business by Greg Balanko-Dickson.

Description: You will find a daily podcast of short, inspirational, and thought provoking ideas to brighten your day and help you grow your business.

Comments: Each of these inspirational podcasts is between 5-10 minutes in length. The sound quality is good, there is the use of music in the shows as well.

Greg does these podcasts solo but uses many different sources of material to make or emphasize his key points. The goal is to give the business owner a shot of energy, innovation or inspiration in an audio form.

Here is a list of some of his topics to date:

– Boost Your Employees Self Esteem
– Freeing Yourself from Impossibilities
– If You Cannot See It You Cannot Build It
– Frustration and Confusion
– About this Podcast and Greg Balanko-Dickson
– Thoughts from Harvey Firestone
– Thoughts from Peter Drucker
– When are you at your best?

Pluses: The website is easy to use, subscribe links are clear and each podcast has its own page of text notes and listener comment capability.

One of the nice touches is that he has an ‘about this podcast’ podcast which outlines how he came to do it and why. Nice touch, rarely done in other shows I have reviewed.

Another great plus is a listing of upcoming show topics and a solicitation to listeners for topic ideas of new shows.

Minuses: Only a couple of thoughts here: at times the sound has too much bass and is hard to hear. I would also like to see Greg eliminate the fillers in his presentation, meaning the ‘umms,’ ‘uhhs,’ and the like.

I recommend you check out Daily Thoughts for Business — the podcasts are short and sweet.

    Hi Anita: thanks for the review and feedback. I tried playing with a few things regarding the sound and base _ I have a new microphone and am getting used to its reccording characteristics. I have narrowed the issue down, I think it has to do with the way Garageband records channels.

    I am working on the Um’s and Ah’s. Always a challenge since I want the podcasts to be unscripted and spontaneous.

    Thanks again for the contructive feedback.

    Hi Greg, nice job on the podcasts. Actually, the Podcast Reviews are written by Steve Rucinski, but I agree with his positive comments.
