Welcome to my How to Podcast page!
Podcasting is an amazing way to get your message out into the world and to be able to serve others by sharing what you know…
I got started about 5 years ago and I can honestly say that podcasting has been a complete game changer!
I started off with just a few hundred downloads and now the Cabral Concept podcast has grown to over 25,000,000 downloads total and approaching 1,000,000 downloads a month!
To make things easier for you on getting started and to answer most of the FAQs I get I created some quick links below for further information on the equipment I use and how to learn to podcast.

Learn to Podcast
The way that I learned to podcast was by signing up for the Podcaster’s Paradise course when I knew nothing… and then I hired a mentor for 4 months to learn the trade secrets. After that I was off and running!
Here are those options that I used and now I’m happy to pay it forward to you:
> Free Podcast Course (Free 15-day email & video course by John Lee Dumas on how to start podcasting)
> John Lee Dumas Podcaster’s Paradise Course (This online coaching program walks you through how to set up a podcast from A-Z)
I wish you the best of health & success!
