We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessica Mosley and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jessica, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Craziness. So the SayWHA Radio Network started off as one podcast. SayWHA Radio. It was based upon me telling the crazy stories of my dating adventures. My very first show was me telling one of my most famous stories. Finding a gentleman I used to date under my bed. In his underwear. Yeah. Like I said craziness. That was in 2011. It’s in our backlog of subscription episodes. Its hilarious to listen to now 10 years later. But after a couple of years of doing the podcast I knew I wanted it to be more. A media company was my dream but its a far fetched dream…or so I thought. I ran into a people, one after another wanting to start podcasts but never knowing where to start. I built the SayWHA Radio Network trying to help those wanting tell their story but didn’t have the knowledge or patience I learned over the last 11 years. My expertise in software engineering, not taking no for answer and my passion for podcasting helped fuel my desire to create a better option for an all inclusive podcasting solution. It allowed me to consult for not just podcasters but also podcast solutions wanting to scale and evolve their backend stack. If you build it, how much better can Jess make it run is my mentality.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Oh there’s so much! We have to check out the Houston sign. Discovery Green is another amazing place for the amazingness of all the events and art there. Mikkis soul food is a must! OG Pho Binh, Kileens BBQ, Breakfast Klub, Turkey Let Hut are a spots to hit. Then we can rent a bike to ride Buffalo Bayou park trails. Of course we gotta hit Space Center Houston and Galveston or Kemah. Yes I know the beaches aren’t California beautiful but it’s still awesome. Especially if you hit “The spot” restaurant there. If it’s during Rodeo time, BBQ cookoff and the carnival with a concert. Or a Dynamo, Astros or Texans game. Do a little shopping at the Galleria and take a stop at the waterwall. Do a pedal party on the way to Axelrad, Z on 23 ,Lei Low or Anvil bad & refuge. Or hit up Marquis 2 for that Texas Tea I hear so much about. I think thats just enough for a week haha.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
