Results of My 2013 Survey

Last week I asked for your feedback. Part of me expected no one to take the survey. But I was pleased, and humbled, to see the response and the feedback. Many of you shared specific information that helps me understand why you read the posts or listen to the podcasts. So I wanted to share with you what you had to say.

I want to thank each of you who participated and provided the feedback and all of those who read and listen. You have no idea how much it means to me to have you as part of the team. I am closing out my first full year of blogging and my energy was waning. Your feedback has reinvigorated me and should be useful as I head into year two!

Survey Comments

I cannot share all here (nor would I want to share your exact words without permission) but here are some of the common themes

  • A few suggested I limit the podcast to 30 minutes or less.
  • A strong percentage indicated the content made them think in new ways about work and money
  • Music should be added to the podcast. (Done! Thanks for those of you who suggested it. More coming.)
  • Guest should be a bigger part of the podcasts. I have a few of these out, but would like to do more.
  • Many indicated a desire to start their own business and that the content help them think through the process.
  • A few of you indicated the content comes too frequently.
