Episode 25- 2017 Year End Review & What To Expect 2018
December 26, 2017 Courtney Stephen & James Lawson
This week James and Courtney talk about what didn’t go so well and what went well in 2017 for Team TCU.

We want to send a very special thank you to our audience and all our listeners.

The Come Up: Steps to Success Podcast started on June 23rd, 2017. In 6 months were able to hit 2027+ downloads. We owe that first-year success to everyone that listened and subscribed to our podcast.

Our first year was full of ups and downs. Lessons that we could only learn by committing to this process of podcasting. One of the major lessons we learned was that consistency is the key to growth. We shared with you our mistakes when launching TCU. Our continuous growth led us to upgrade our microphones, and because of our increasing commitment, we "paid to play" by purchasing professional hosting to deliver longer episodes and better-embedded players.

What Didn’t Go Well
Lack of research before launching episode 1
Waiting two weeks to release episode 2
Conflicting schedules

What Went Well!
Switching to Buzzsprout
Upgrading our microphones to the Audio-Technica ATR 2100
Bringing on ambitious guests that included authors, athletes, artists, and entrepreneurs.
