We were lucky to catch up with Shunte Gamble recently and have shared our conversation below.

Shunte, looking forward to hearing all of your stories today. One of our favorite things to brainstorm about with friends who’ve built something entrepreneurial is what they would do differently if they were to start over today. Surely, there are things you’ve learned that would allow you to do it over faster, more efficiently. We’d love to hear how you would go about setting things up if you were starting over today, knowing everything that you already know.

I have tons of experience in starting over. In 2008, I launched my first business after discovering I could create wearable art (jewelry) from my imagination. My grandmother and I also needed a craft idea for our Christmas project. With new determination, I focused on all that my mind could create. I took the steps needed to get the word out and become official. Little did I know that one move would start a wave of self-discovery.

Shunte Gamble, a teacher living in east Texas, is on a mission to use her talents for the greater good. “I love the classroom but I have so much more to offer,” she says. One day, Shunte told her mom, “I think I want to teach the world.” That’s how MixedTalkRadio was born.

Shunte’s goal is to build an online radio station that spotlights local artists and interviews inspirational guests. She built the elements of her media company over time. She now oversees a podcast, a magazine, a radio station, and live events – all part of MixedTalkMedia – and is chief marketing officer for all of them.

As a business coach for other entrepreneurs, Shunte advises them to develop a customer base by launching their own podcast. “You don’t have to be a big influencer with millions of followers. You can start with a Facebook page, then use graphics that look professional and that reflect what you’re trying to promote. That’s the way to stand out.”

Here are Shunte’s ten steps to starting and promoting your own podcast.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shunte Gamble.

Shunte, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.

My journey began writing to cope through a challenging season once I graduated from college as a single mom. That experience led me to publishing my first book “Therapy for your Soul Book of Poetry”. Within this time, I was doing the work to find my purpose, passion, and gifts. I discovered I was creative. I took that self-discovery and started my first company. From there, I was driven to find out all I was made of no matter how long it took. The effort turned into a nonprofit, hosting events to support cancer awareness, and another book. Life never stopped. There were many times I wanted to give up, cried when facing difficulties that felt too hard to overcome, denied access to opportunities all while being a wife, mother, and myself.
