Every other week in this series, we feature a Woman of Color in podcasting, from producers to editors and hosts, to get their insights and point you to helpful resources. Today, we are featuring Debbie Arcangeles, the host of The Offbeat Life, a podcast where she interviews digital nomads and remote bosses who can live and work from anywhere.

Podcast Coach Debbie Arcangeles

“A crucial part of success is having the right support and community.” – Debbie Arcangeles.

How did you get started in podcasting?

I started podcasting in 2017 as a way to get advice from digital nomads and remote workers. I felt unfulfilled with my day job and wanted to learn how others were able to create freedom. So, I started a podcast to interview these individuals to see if I could learn how to do the same.

What’s something you wished you knew before you started?

I wish I didn’t let my inexperience with recording and tech stop me from starting my podcast sooner. This fear delayed me from hitting publish for six months.

What do you wish people knew about your profession? 

Like anything else that’s worth anything, it takes a lot of hard work. And there is a lot that goes behind the scenes, but it is a profession that could change your life.

What advice would you give to newcomers to the industry?

There is no “get quick” success advice anyone can give you. Learn your craft, listen to advice, but always try it yourself before making any decisions. Just because it doesn’t work for someone does not mean it won’t work for you and vice versa. That’s why it takes a lot of experimentation and failures to succeed in any business. 

What products or services do you currently offer? 

I am currently offering a 1-1 podcast coaching program where I help seasoned podcasters learn how to monetize their show.

And for newbies, you can sign up for my free start a podcast masterclass.

Do you have a podcast? Tell us about an episode of your podcast that you’d love for people to check out!

Yes, I have a podcast called The Offbeat Life, where I interview online entrepreneurs and remote workers to find out how they created freedom through location independence. 

Feel free to check out my episode with Danielle Desir, who is a fellow podcaster, founder of WOC Podcasters and an amazing entrepreneur.
