The Klaude Walters Podcast



Something I've been contemplating for a few years now is starting my own podcast. I often find myself recording my thoughts on my "voice memo" app on my phone and then listening to these clips later thinking I should share these with my fans. So, I am taking the leap of faith that I have something to share that might educate, empower, entertain or inspire some people out there on the world wide web.


I have over 200 clips on my phone to sift through...and many more to record.


Here's the description I entered on my Podcast web page. It may give you an idea of what the show will be about...

I really want to connect with my fans and had started doing so through weekly videos on FB Live but then FB took down my Klaude Walters Instagram account (without reason or notice) and my capabilities of doing FB Lives through my FB Klaude Walters artist page. That really felt like a gut punch to me. I had put a lot of time and effort building my Instagram page and to have it deleted for no reason got me a little miffed, to say the least.


Video was never my thing. I hate being in front of the camera. Always have. Even while creating music videos for my songs in the past, I always preferred the director's chair than being in the shot, the spotlight intimidated me and made me focus on the wrong things. Being behind a microphone feels way more natural to me. Feels authentic and uninhibited. I can focus on my listener and speaking my truth and sharing who I really am without worrying about getting the visual bells and whistles right.


I should be up and running in a few weeks and hope to get, at least, one new episode up on the platform every week. Once I am well versed in the medium, I hope to ramp up the # of episodes to 2 or 3 a week. We'll see. It's a lot to learn but exciting.


What I am learning more and more these days is to never limit yourself in any way and to go out there and experience as much out of life as you can because you never know when it can all be taken away.

So, for now, I am going after every single thing I have on my bucket list and letting nothing stand in my way.


What are you going after right now? Is there something you've been wanting to do that you keep putting off because you're afraid to fail or you don't know where to start? Share your thoughts below in the comment section, let's get things done together!


Don't ever let fear be your life's pilot...if you do, you'll never move an inch!


Wish me luck!
