If you want to be successful as a podcast editor, you just need to grind it out. All time time. Day and night. When you're sick. When your family needs you. Just keep grinding.
Or do you?
The reality is that you're not a machine, and you didn't go into business so that you could be the worst boss you've ever had.
You need to take time off. You need to recharge. You need to have a LIFE.
