About

It's time to bring ZEN commuter to a larger audience, the largest audience, the world.  Currently it is enjoyed in 13 countries around the world.  To appeal to an even larger audience I want to change the format of the show.  I wish to interview men and women who have achieved their version of success by helping change the world for the better.

The goal is to demonstrate to listeners that the world can be changed through altruism.  In that altruism it is possible to live an abundant and joyous life.

In order to change the format I need to upgrade my equipment to allow for the recording of calls with guests over the internet.  This includes a new mixer, a larger hosting package for six months until the show hits its stride and becomes self sufficient.

The guests will have already developed a strong social media presence with their projects and once they are interviewed on the show their audience will tune  in to ZEN commuter to hear the interview.  Since these audiences share a similar focus with ZEN commuter this will increase the listenership significantly.  Once it has grown to a significant size I will be able to develop a list of sponsors for each show.  In doing so I will be able to monetize the podcast so that it becomes self-sufficient.

The loftiest goal of the show is to help listeners develop a sense of inner peace and self worth.  I want to showcase the many brilliant people who are creating an abundant life for themselves by changing the world for the better.  With these interviews it is my hope that listeners will begin to believe in their own abilities to change not only their world, but the world at large.

Risks and challenges

The podcast is already live and has been airing 5 days a week since the end of April. Reliability and frequency do not present a challenge. The only challenge I foresee is getting guests to interview. To that end I have created a list of 50 possible candidates from an entrepreneur podcast that is currently airing. My next step is to research the The top 50 Social entrepreneurs and reach out to them via email and social media. The show has already helped hundreds of people. I am sure this next evolution will do the same thing exponentially
