Happy LATE 6 months of podcasting to me…That’s right, I missed my own 6-monthiversary! Time flies when you’re having fun, right?

Host of Adult Struggles, Ashley BarnhartI used to tell friends, family, and people that I met about how I had just launched a podcast, but now the conversation has shifted. I get to share stories from all of the amazing guests, how the community is growing, and how my perspective has changed over the past several months. 

I wanted to take a moment to commemorate this milestone by sharing with you 6 things I’ve learned from 6 months of podcasting. So whether you’re curious what this journey has been like, or maybe you want to try podcasting yourself, I hope you’ll find this interesting!

Why did I start podcasting?

There’s not really a straight answer to this, because I feel like it was born out of many things. If you’ve been following since the beginning, you may know that I was laid off from my job of 5 years in November 2017. After finding a new job, I knew I also wanted to create something that was MINE. I had this idea floating around in my head that there needed to be a resource for “adulting.” I have had many conversations with my dear friend Erin about the lack of real-life skills taught in our education system. We are taught about ionic bonds, cell reproduction, and quadratic equations, but we aren’t shown how to file our taxes, how to contribute to a 401(K), or how to buy our first home. You know, stuff that would be SUPER useful as a young adult. So with fate pushing me to try something new, and this idea bubbling in my mind, Adult Struggles was born.
