When I was doing my research for this interview I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
The story that BJ Harrison shared with me during this episode of The Happiness of Pursuit podcast, really surprised me. It is one of the most unexpecting professions you could possibly think of when it comes to the world of online business. BJ Harrison mastered by simply taking his love for classic literature took his love for classic literature and turned it into a podcast called “Classic Tales,”
BJ Harrison created the “Classic Tales” podcast as a way of sharing his love for classic literature with the world – what he didn’t expect was that simple decision to take action would lead to a full-time business reading for Audible!
His path to success was something you would hear out of the best entrepreneurial stories (read the full story here);
I borrowed a computer from my stepbrother Dane. My good friend Dave loaned me his old recording equipment, and showed me how to make a podcast using free software. I started with 3 stories: The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe, The Speckled Band by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Barbara of the House of Grebe, Part 1, by Thomas Hardy. It cost $10 to host the podcast and submit it to iTunes.
In this episode you will learn:
- The importance of taking action
- How to be who you are without seeking permission
- Why you need to stop limiting yourself (borrow what you can’t buy)
- How to build a business around what you love
