In this episode of The Struggling Entrepreneur, we have an interview with Daniel J. Lewis (no relation to the film actor) whose persona is ‘The Ramen Noodle’ with his own New Media Network called “Noodle-Mix” at http://www.noodle.mx).
Although he has a full-time job, Daniel is a part-time entrepreneur who is a free-lance digital designer with the name of D.JosephDesign at www.djosephdesign.com. He also entered the world of podcasting. As a podcaster, he has seen tremendous growth, which has now also helped his business grow. At this time, he has three podcast series that he has published and for which he continues to produce content. As you will hear in this audio episode, he has had success in being highlighted by the Apple iTunes(R) podcast directory as a new entry that became a featured favorite. This, of course, gave tremendous exposure, awareness and reach for new subscribers.
As you will hear in this audio episode, the single most characteristic that has attracted people to Daniel’s podcasts is his enthusiasm and passion for podcasting. And we are sure that you will agree, once you listen to his episodes.
However, Daniel’s skills as a podcaster show very well with his emphasis and criteria for sound and audio quality in what he publishes on his blog or in the iTunes directory.
An interesting recommendation that this relatively young part-time entrepreneur delivers to us is his perspective of maintaining a life balance. This includes the ability to “close the door and leave work” from the business, even though his podcast studio and small business office is contained within his home. Thus, these mental and physical boundaries would always put his family first — even though it may mean giving up an opportunity for additional business and income.
You can subscribe to Daniel’s podcasts from his major web site with all the podcasts at http://www.noodle.mx (his New Media network). Or you can follow him on twitter with his handle of @TheRamenNoodle.
By the way, if you do engage Daniel as a digital designer to provide some of his services for you or your firm, he is generous enough to offer an incentive to the listeners and subscribers to The Struggling Entrepreneur podcast. You can use a coupon code (which is “noodle”) to get a special discount at D.JosephDesign for his services.
