What if your leads totally trusted you before you even met?

Podcasting is an almost magical way for self-employed folks to grow their business (e.g., developers, designers, writers, photographers, illustrators, accountants, lawyers, etc.).

Why is this?

Because podcasting creates a kind of “asymmetric intimacy” with your listeners - i.e., you don’t know them at all but they feel like they know you.

I have personally observed this phenomenon as both a host and a listener, but you don’t have to take my word for it... there is scientific evidence to back it up.

The bottom line is this:

Regular exposure to a podcast host creates friendship and intimacy with people in the audience.

And guess what?

People buy from people they know, like, and trust!

I attended 5dpc a little less then a year ago and launched my podcast right after. 5dpc was like a kick for me to launch my podcast.

Producing a podcast doesn’t have to be hard.

Sure, a show like This American Life probably takes a team of people and a ton of money, but that’s not the kind of show you need to create to grow your business.

And yet, most business owners don’t have a podcast. Why not?

Here are some common objections:

If you’ve ever thought about starting a podcast but gave up for reasons like these, I invite you to join us in the 5-Day Podcasting Challenge.

The Five Day Podcasting challenge course helped me to launch a podcast I’d been thinking about doing for months in five days. I started the course on May 11th, and by June 8th, had the first episode produced and released. That’s 3 weeks from the first day of the course to the first episode being available to the public. That’s incredible and a testament to Jonathan’s approach in teaching both the mechanics of how to get started and removing the roadblocks to producing a podcast.

5DPC is for self-employed professionals who make money selling their expertise and don’t have a lot of time or energy for marketing their business. 5DPC might be for you if you would like to:


5DPC is an interactive online workshop designed to take you from zero to podcast in just five days. You will work with me and a cohort of your peers through five lessons released daily:

One short focused video lesson is released each day for five days. You can watch each lesson in about ten minutes. At the end of each, I’ll prompt you with a homework exercise.

Then, you jump into the Slack channel for the lesson and share your homework (or questions!) with me and the other participants to help each other stick to and work through the subject of the lesson.

By the time you’re done, you’ll have your show defined, your gear assembled, your podcast website up, and you’ll be sending out invites to potential guests.


Is five days enough time to start an amazing podcast? Nope, and that’s 100% on purpose. The only way to create an amazing podcast is to start podcasting and improve with practice.

5DPC is specifically designed to smash through any procrastination or perfectionist tendencies and actually get your show off the ground. If you can run a conference call, you can host a podcast.


5DPC takes place online in a private Slack room that has been structured and customized to maximize engagement with the material and the community.

You can easily watch the lessons and participate in the discussion from anywhere using your phone, tablet, or laptop/desktop.

There are podcasting courses available online as high as $2,675 for podcast audio engineering training, all the way on down to free self-paced video courses on Udemy and the like.

5DPC is NOT a self-paced video course that you have to go through on your own (if you ever get around to going through it at all).

Rather, 5DPC is a group experience specifically designed to keep you engaged and accountable.

Plus, I’ll be on hand all week to help you get unstuck and stay on track. The price for 5DPC is $245, which includes the following bonuses:

Is there a money-back guarantee?

Yes, there’s a money-back guarantee.

If you find that 5DPC hasn’t met your expectations, simply drop me a note after you’ve participated in all the lessons and I’ll refund your entire tuition.

I’ve run loads of peer-based workshops and have found that when students contribute, they get back far more than they put into it.

Sometimes life gets in the way. If you need to withdraw before you complete 5DPC, I’m happy to defer you to a future session at no cost. Just ask.

To be fair to all, I don’t offer refunds for non-participation.
