Learn how to start the kind of podcast that gets people talking.

You've been hearing about podcasts for ages, and you're worried about how to get it off the ground.  Equipment, editing, submitting to places like Apple and trying to figure out how to talk into a mic without tripping over your words all seems a bit daunting. 

You want to reach more people, share your story, make a difference in the world and have more impact, but you're not sure how to do it. 

It feels like you have so much to say, but it usually feels like you're screaming into the black hole of social media without anyone even noticing. 

You want to connect with people on a deeper, more meaningful level and build incredible relationships, even though you don't know how to get there.

You want to use a podcast to grow your business and increase your online visibility, and you're overwhelmed at knowing where to begin. 

The good news is that your voice can have a massive impact beyond anything you can imagine, and there are people out there who need to hear your message.

Hi! I'm Emily Gough

I'm the host and founder of the Room to Grow Podcast, which started on a whim in my Google docs with a handful of ideas, and after 150+ episodes has grown into a listening experience that is consistently featured in the top 200 worldwide in its' category.

I started my first podcast Fit & Nourished Mind with a co-host in November 2017.  We aired nearly 50 episodes before realizing our businesses were going in different directions, and I launched the Room to Grow Podcast as a solo show the day our joint podcast ended. 

The incredible connections & relationships that have been formed as a direct result of using my voice in the podcasting space hooked me, and I began to recognize the immense power of the podcasting platform to bring people together and share your message. 

It's because of this that I pivoted into podcasting & business coaching a year ago.  

I realized that nothing else lit me up or made me as passionate as teaching entrepreneurs how to leverage their voice in the online space, and to launch and grow successful podcasts while building their businesses, all by leading with their hearts and taking plenty of imperfect action.

Imagine having people reach out to you letting you know that you changed their life in some way, getting messages from strangers explaining how much an episodes touched them or that they felt pulled to share it with a friend or loved one, or being approached to be asked how people can work with you, without you ever even asking for the sale.

This is what podcasting has done for me and for my business.

I've heard from so many people that they want more than just a basic launch checklist and technical tutorials.  

They need assistance connecting with people on a deeper level, sharing their stories in a meaningful way, growing their businesses around a podcast and building trust and fostering connection to create the kind of impact that they've always hoped to achieve. 

Podcasting for Impact offers the technical support, marketing plan to launch and promote your podcast, and strategies to increase your visibility, grow your brand and business, and increase revenue.

I'm offering a select number of 1:1 VIP coaching spots because I know that sometimes you're going to need more direction, insight and personal attention from someone who understands your business.

I want you to be able to learn from my many failures, mistakes and flops so that you can spend more time and energy putting your message out into the world instead, because we need more of you, your story and your message.

Podcasts are just getting started.

While podcasting might be *hot* right now, they're far from being a fad. 

There are over 50 million YouTube channels and more than 400 million blogs, yet only around 800,000 podcasts right now, thought that number is climbing daily.

80% of people recently polled listen to all of most of a podcast episode, which is a lot more than we can say for most videos, and podcasts are easy to consume on the go while driving, commuting, walking, or doing chores.

Most importantly, podcast build enormous trust with your audience. 

No matter your niche or area of expertise, there are people who NEED to hear what you have to say. Think about this: you're being given the opportunity to speak straight into someone's ear and use the power of connection to capture their attention.  It's the best solution beyond being in-person. 

The problem is, you have no idea where to begin.

You know that you're not having the kind of impact you signed up to have in the world and you're left wondering what to do differently.


Most people are doing it wrong.  They're starting podcasts without a plan or a strategy in place and it quickly becomes a time-consuming hobby, or worse yet, cast aside and abandoned entirely.

You're looking for something more.  Podcasting has been in the back of your mind for ages, but you've gotten stuck along the way and you feel left behind. 

 The industry is rapidly growing, it feels like everyone is jumping on the so-called podcasting bandwagon, and you're wondering how these people are managing to not only see all kinds of success from their podcast, but to grow their impact, reach and businesses at the same time.

Podcasting for Impact is what you've been waiting for if these signs sound like you:

  • You're paralyzed with fear & doubts

    Allowing the excuse of perfectionism to prevent you from ever starting in the first place, and worried about judgements from others as you put your story and yourself out there on a larger, more visible platform.

  • You think everything has already been said

    You're stuck in a vicious cycle of knowing that you can change lives, while questioning if you have anything to say that people would listen to, wondering if you'll run out of things to talk about, or offer value that will keep people coming back for more.

  • You're looking to build lasting relationships

    Whether it's with your customers or listeners, peers, industry leaders or podcast guests, you want to unlock the key to creating connection with people that has them pumped to work with you or tune in to listen to what you have to say.

  • You want to make an impact in a genuine, authentic way

    No fake BS to be found here. You're in it for the real deal, to leverage your stories in a way that puts you in a leadership role, touching people's lives in some small way and using your voice and expertise to create change, all while showing up exactly as you are.

  • You want to reach more people without paying Mark Zuckerberg

    Ad budget? What's that? It's frustrating that everyone keeps telling you to drop a chunk of change on paying for ads, and you're wondering how to get in front of new eyes & ears organically without lining the pockets of Facebook.

  • You're concerned that the technical side of things will be overwhelming

    Even thinking about how to figure out everything from editing to cover artwork makes you feel like the little head-exploding emoji, and you've never considered yourself very "techy."

It's not about the numbers. It's about impact.

You want to feel like you're actually making a difference to even ONE person's life.  

You want to be able to approach industry leaders with confidence about connecting with them and bringing them on your podcast, because your podcast and your energy is contagious and your message is important.

You want to feel confident in your abilities, and grow your visibility and business at the same time.  

You want to have clarity and a strategy in place that allows you to take your podcast to the next level.

This is where Podcasting for Impact comes in.

I'm all about real, genuine connection with other human beings and building relationships and helping others create the same for themselves.

Putting all the focus on the numbers, whether that's downloads, dollars or Instagram followers is bullsh*t.

Your voice can have a massive impact beyond your wildest dreams - if you let it.

Grit, determination and messy action is how you build the podcast & business you're dreaming about, not by letting fear stop you in your tracks.

Everyone has a unique set of stories and experiences that someone else would benefit from learning.

Showing up as yourself and letting people see your imperfections is what will set you apart in a noisy online space.

Are you ready yet?
