Have You Been Missing Out?

Last week it was International Podcast Day!

A shout out to all the podcasters and podcast listeners amongst us!

Launching The Sam + Jo VA Show was a game changer for us in terms of our reach. Why help a small handful of VAs when we can instead empower thousands thanks to recording our conversations, tips and tricks?

It just made sense!

And now 73 episodes in, it's well and truly become part of our brand and weekly work schedule.

Sam doesn't even get nervous anymore (which is saying something considering how Jo had to drag her along kicking and screaming!).

Last time we looked at the stats, they told us that:

  • In 2020 there were 850,000 active podcasts and over 30 million podcast episodes worldwide.
  • The Sam + Jo VA Show gets around 1,000 downloads each month.
  • Since launching in June 2020 we've had 11,756 downloads in total!

Not too shabby for a couple of introverted Kiwi chicks!!


The most viewed episodes are:

Ep#57: How Amy Smith Quit Her 9-5.

Ep#52: Selling With Confidence & Imperfect Action with Natalie Tolhopf.

Ep#70: 10 Red Flags You Should Never Ignore When Recruiting Team Members


Our personal podcasting highlights have been:

Ep#70 when Jo tells/reminds Sam that she does in fact (despite her protests) have a team now.

Ep#62 where we held nothing back in sharing the exact reasons some VAs aren't signing up clients.

Ep#27 when we completely lost it laughing whilst sharing truly shocking stories of VAs making the worst first impressions imaginable on Zoom.
