MASSACHUSETTS-Alexander McLeish,62, had no clue how his life was about to change. And you’ll never guess what was inside. This Thanksgiving holiday he landed himself in the hospital as he recovered from open-heart surgery he had earlier in the month.
The nurse walked into his room, handing him a yellow envelope with a get well soon card and some lottery stickets from a long time friend. When he got to the “$5,000,000 100x Cashword” ticket in his Attleborough, Massachusetts home, with his one of his sons right there beside him. As he continued to scratch off words on crossword puzzle looking ticket, the bottom word read “heart” and clenched in the million-dollar prize.
Can you imagine? You never know what a small gesture can do to impact someone’s life. I’m sure the person who gifted him the scratch off ticket had no intention of him winning such a massive amount of money. But anyway, congratulations. Enjoy!!
If you need some extra cash, starting a podcast may be the easiest most fun thing you can do. Since the pandemic people globally have given their traditional jobs the boot.

So now that you’ve come to this revelation, now what?

There are lots of varieties you can choose to use for your platform from voice overs, to recorded books. Starting a new venture of any kind can feel intimidating. But I promise once you jump off the cliff; you begin to glide and eventually soar high.
Starting A Podcast is Fun
Not to mention, an outlet that gives you the freedom to share your points of view on various topics. Podcasts are vastly growing and becoming a part of technology that people prefer to use. Technology has branched off ubiquitously. With statistics showing how massive screentime can affect our mood and psyche, podcasting assists with cutting that screen time down.

This year’s drive was also located at the Southside Community Church in Corpus Christi and League City Elementary School in League City.
