stop waiting, start podcasting!
start a podcast that builds your business or career without ending up in burnout or podfade
online Course


Being the go-to expert in your industry and getting booked for 5-figure consulting jobs and international speaking gigs.

Getting sign ups to your email list, courses and coaching programs from podcast episodes you created months or even years ago (Idk about you but none of my IG posts work that hard!) 

Regularly receiving emails and DMs from listeners who say the information and inspiration you shared in your podcast has changed their life. 

That's totally possible for you. And how do I know?  

Because those are real-life results my clients, students and I have gotten once we mastered the basics of podcasting and actually launched a show.

What makes this special? This online training will give you: 

  • A step-by-step plan to get your Minimum Viable Podcast live and into our earbuds (because unless you actually publish it, it's not a podcast!) 
  • No more tech overwhelm or indecision, because I will show you exactly what software and equipment you need to get started (without spending hundreds of $) 
  • A proven approach from someone who not only has her own podcast, but has worked behind-the-scenes on dozens of others from small creators 

 Sounds like just the thing you need to finally start your podcast? Then I have just the thing for you!



A no-fluff training covering everything you need to actually start your podcast (and what you definitely don't need, too!)

You'll learn what you must have to get started, what I strongly recommend, and what is a nice-to-have but can (and should!) come later once you're more established. 

But most importantly, you'll learn how to stop getting caught in tech overwhelm and content perfectionism and finally get your podcast LAUNCHED and LIVE!

Here's everything you'll learn inside Minimum Viable Podcast:

The biggest mistakes people make when planning their podcast (and what to do instead) 

  What software and equipment you need for recording and publishing your podcast (and what you definitely don’t need, despite what the celebrity entrepreneurs say!) 

  The simple way to promote your podcast so you can launch effectively and sustainably 

  How to build your podcast audience even if you’re just starting out 

  What my own podcasts taught me about podcaster burnout and podfade (and what I’m doing and recommending differently now!)

"I felt very overwhelmed about the process of setting up a podcast. I had been wanting to start a podcast for years, but the thought of having to set it all up felt daunting. I had no idea where to start or what I needed. Because of Ellen, I have successfully started a podcast! She walked me through all the little steps and gave me the necessary info I needed to set it up. I feel so excited to be able to put this out into the world."

The Healing Embodied Podcast

G'day I'm Ellen Ronalds Keene 

I'm a music teacher turned podcaster and podcast producer. 

My clients, students and I have used the Minimum Viable Podcast approach to finally start building authority, audience and opportunities through hosting a non-fiction podcast.

I also have regular conversations in my DMs and Discovery Calls with aspiring podcasters who are so caught up in all the things they *think* they need to be the perfect podcaster that they have been working on their show for years now but have never actually published an episode. 

Now, I’ve bottled up everything I know about starting a podcast in this fluff-free training so you too can finally become a podcaster and start reaping the rewards.

Minimum Viable Podcast is perfect for you if... 

  • You have no idea where to start when it comes to hosting your own podcast 
  • You feel overwhelmed with all the decisions you need to make when starting a podcast 
  • You are in ‘analysis paralysis’ over all the equipment and software options 
  • You understand that podcasts are a long term game and that starting small and building as you go is better than waiting for perfect and not starting at all 
  • You have 3 hours per week to dedicate to getting your podcast started and then 1+ hours per episode to devote to it ongoing 
  • You are ready to build your audience and your authority so that you can make a difference, make a name for yourself and make money through podcasts

On the other hand, you might want to skip it if... 

  • You already know how to start a podcast but you want to learn to edit (we cover editing in our Minimum Viable Podcast Editing training here)
  • You need a quick cash injection into your business and are hoping a podcast will bring you leads or customers overnight (or learn long-term monetisation options here)
  • You are not ready or don’t want to commit to podcasting as a long-term strategy (i.e. 6 - 12 months) 
  • You want to learn how to pitch and land guest interviews on podcasts (we cover that in our Get Started Guesting training here)

  • How long will this take?
    The training itself will take around 90 minutes. Monetising a podcast can take months or even years, but if you already have an engaged audience then this training will help you monetise sooner.
  • What if I can’t join live?
    You’ll receive the video recording and slides after the training (uploaded within 24 hours), so you can watch it whenever you want. Plus, you’ll have the chance to submit any specific questions in advance, so I can cover them during the Q&A part of the training.
  • When will you offer this training again?
    I’ll offer the recording of the training, but the special launch price of $US47 will be gone. After 29th August, Adventures in Podcast Monetisation will be sold for US$97 and you won’t get the opportunity to join live or submit questions in advance.
  • How long do I have access to this training?
    For as long as I offer this training, you will be able to refer back to it. If at any time I decide to no longer offer it, you will be given notice and a way to keep all materials.
  • Will there be accommodations made in this training?
    A transcript of the training will be provided with the recording and the slides will be kept very plain for visually impaired software to follow along easily. Once the videos are chopped up into modules in the course platform I will be adding captions (please allow a couple of weeks for this after the training). I’m working on a live captioning option for future presentations. Anything else, let me know!
  • Are there refunds?
    Under Australia Consumer Law, I am not required to provide a refund or replacement if you change your mind. As this is a digital product, please consider carefully if this is right for you before you purchase. But you can choose a refund or exchange the product has a major problem. This is when the product: • has a problem that would have stopped someone from buying the item if they had known about it • is unsafe • is significantly different from the sample or description • doesn’t do what we said it would, and can’t be easily fixed.
  • You’re Australian. Why do you charge in USD?
    I run an online business with clients and students from all around the world. USD is the standard currency in online business.
  • I’ve got another question
    Great! Send me an email to hello [at] and let’s chat!

*Important note: This training is not a detailed how-to for you to set up each of these strategies for yourself. I'm sharing an overview of the different kinds of monetisation approaches and what kind of podcasts they can work well for, plus some case studies and insider tips. I will also definitely point you in the right direction for getting more information about each strategy.

Please note: this training is currently on presale pricing at $47. After the training is delivered on the 29th August, the price will go up to $97.
