Today we welcome Sachit Gupta to the podcast. Sachit is the founder of Platforms Media and one of the genius minds behind some of the biggest names in the podcasting world today. Sachit has worked personally with Andrew Warner's Mixergy podcast for numerous years and helped Andrew and the Mixergy team create a sustainable, very successfully monetized podcast, selling $70,000 with of advertisement for his show in just one day! He was also essential to help Tim Ferriss grow his podcasts working with Tim for three years, and then Sachit has also helped Seth Godin create and build his podcast as well. 

Sachit has a really great story about how he started out in India and it was his dream to live and build a successful career in the US. He was inspired believe it or not, by these three amazing people Tim Ferriss, Andrew Warner, & Seth Godin by reading their books and studying their strategies. He had a dream to meet all three of those entrepreneurs and one day and thank them for how they helped him change his life. Coming around to full circle, all three of those people later became clients of his.

Towards the end of the podcast, we talk deeply about podcasting in today’s world. Sachit actually launched his own personal podcast, getting it up on the Top-25 charts across all podcasts in the United States. We address where podcasting is going in the next decade, some hacks, tips and strategies that both him and I use for growing our podcasts. It's  an incredible episode.
