In 2009, Ellory was a great employee. A hard worker who everyone liked.
Then, his life took a big change when he was laid off from his job. Then again, working hard, doing all the right things, after 5 years he was let go from another employer.

Being laid off from his job gave him the chance to learn more about himself and what he needs to do with his life. During this time, Ellory realized he needed to build his own business and write a book about his expertise and vast experience.

Then again, will you let getting just the right kind of equipment and software hinder your message? Will you allow it to prevent you from telling your story to the world? Ellory’s answer, “It doesn’t have to be that way”.
Ellory mentioned that investing in high-quality podcast equipment is great. However, if you can’t afford it then there are a lot of ways to make your podcast happen without the big bucks most people spend.
During the time that Ellory was just starting his podcast, like many people, he couldn’t afford to buy high-end quality podcast equipment. What he did instead, was devote some of his time to research and gathering information. By the way, as a stroke of pure genius, all of the information Ellory gathered, he condensed and share with everyone who followed him. Take note, that is a VERY smart way to connect with people who you may target later as your prospects.
Because of his research, he was able to find a local guitar center who sells a $35 microphone, instead of the $200 most people pay for a high quality microphone for their podcast.
