  2. Hi Vishwajeet, excellent piece on podcasting! I really need to try to start mine again over on Anchor. I did enjoy it and it was quicker than blogging. I do some with Sue-Ann from Write Mix for Business too.
    I think you have inspired me! I didn’t think about the affiliate marketing aspect or the courses which I just launched on Udemy.
    Thank you! Have a great day Vishwajeet.
