1. Why I started Noosa Stories, my story, what the podcast it is about and how you can benefit from listening
My aim with Noosa Stories is to show people that, yes, Noosa is beautiful, but for us locals, the community make us stay.
My name is Yenny and I am the person behind Noosa Stories. This is my second podcast. I started my first podcast Everyday Light Warriors when I was feeling really down going through a separation two years ago and to get myself through this, I decided to do an exhibition of photos of people with natural positivism.
It all got me so inspired that I decided to share some of these people’s stories and this slowly turned into the Every Day Light Warriors podcast and website, a place where I share people's life story and self-care techniques to inspire others. The show is now on Apple Podcast (iTunes), Stitcher and iHeart Radio and has a worldwide audience.
Through this process I was lucky to encounter so many wonderful people in Noosa and the surroundings, people who have been so generous with their time and effort without asking anything in return. They have now become my friends and some of them feel like my extended family.
Noosa Stories was born from the idea of connecting people in the community through podcasting and I am excited to say that this is Noosa's first ever pure community podcast!
In the show I share stories of people in the Noosa Shire of how and why they got here, what they do, challenges they faced moving to Noosa and how they have reinvented themselves to be able to stay here. Since I moved here from Melbourne about 8 years ago I always get asked by friends visiting: How do you really survive here in Noosa? The answer from most people I have encountered is like me, make sure you’ll get many income streams.
I'll also try to squeeze in some Noosa love stories. Please give me a call or email me if you have any stories!
My aim is to show people that, yes, Noosa is beautiful, but for us locals, the community make us stay.
I also run workshops about How To Start A Podcast in Noosa and the Sunshine Coast for businesses, schools and organisations. If you are interested in learning how you can start podcasting, build a deeper connection with your audience and create a podcast on a show on a budget but still sound like a pro, please feel free to contact me.
