The Year We Battled and Beat the Odds!
Hot off the presses and better late than never (especially because Jaime only just thought to do this over the weekend…) is Flint Stone Media’s first ever Annual Report!!
We have been so proud of all the strides the Flint Stone Media team has made in 2020–it’s sixth year of operation. In spite of how many difficult twists and turns the pandemic brought, we managed to still show solid growth over the previous year. Here are our official FSM company stats for 2020:
- New Team Members: 7
- New Shows Launched: 12
- Existing Shows Becoming clients: 2
- Episodes Produced: 478
- Total Downloads for Our Clients: 1,045,117*
- Special Audio Projects: 3
- Shows Currently in Development: 9
* This total only includes downloads for shows for which we are able to access and verify the stats directly ourselves.
Throughout the growth of the Flint Stone Media team in 2020, Producer Jaime focused on balancing the addition of her extraordinarily talented new team members with still providing all new podcasters with her signature personal attention and proprietary show development process. Thus, as the Flint Stone Media team and portfolio scaled, so did its culture of turnkey, personal production. Jaime knows that none of FSM’s achievements in 2020 would have been possible without the dedication and skills of her team–especially as many of them were brought on board just before the pandemic hit. And, throughout their own hardships, Flint Stone Media’s clients have shown such inspiring strength and passion for their craft, that we can only thank them for allowing us to continue as part of their journeys.
As a personal note, Producer Jaime also hit some strong career milestone stats for the year:
- Podcasts Invited on as a Guest or Guest Host: 3
- Printed Interviews: 2
- Public Speaking Engagements: 4
Plus, she was ECSTATIC to end the year with the launch of her own brand new podcast, Business in the Bedroom, which is being really well-received!
Several of these above FSM stats were associated with key moments throughout the year. Here are some of those highlights:

And, it was all downhill from there… Ha! Hardly!! We have since been continuing the big moves, including announcing the addition of a new show to The Wedding Biz Network–Stop and Smell the Roses with Preston Bailey! And, we are looking forward to continuing milestones we can be really proud of throughout the rest of 2021.
Hello, I’m Andy Kushner, host of the leading wedding and events podcast, The Wedding Biz. And I have been so fortunate to have partnered with Jaime Legagneur and her company, Flint Stone Media, to grow The Wedding Biz from a solo show into a full podcast network. Since May 2019 (even through this pandemic), Jaime has been by my side in the sales process–helping to solidify the sale with each new host and then guiding them through her well-established show development process thereafter.
And Jaime really pulled every corner of her talent into this endeavor for me–applying not only her podcasting acumen, but so much more. She also applied her business education from Tulane University to put together my strategy plan, framework, and supporting documentation. Furthermore, Jaime used her legal knowledge from the Law School at the University of Virginia to manage my hosts’ contracts–frequently also acting as the liaison with my legal counsel.
Plus, she utilized her vast experience as a web designer and developer to both build the website for The Wedding Biz Network and redesign the website for my podcast, The Wedding Biz, increasing discoverability for the flagship show.
I was fortunate to find such an array of skills in just one person.
Above all else, Jaime has demonstrated unbounded dedication and an authentic enthusiasm for my success. AND her entire Flint Stone Media team has made wonderful contributions to the effort by supporting the production of shows for Sean Low, Rachel Birthistle, and Preston Bailey from launch through episode recording, editing, post-production, and distribution. I simply could not have built this network without them, and I can’t wait to see how far TWBN goes with their continued support!
Though growth is naturally on Jaime’s mind as an entrepreneur, she remains steadfast and committed to maintaining an atmosphere of personal and enthusiastic service. As such, we are so pleased that most of our new clients continue to come through referrals from our existing clients–many of whom are not just referring colleagues, but also their friends and family. We cherish their trust and confidence!
Thank you all for your help with WESA’s Anniversary video! We just shared it online. It wouldn’t have been the same without the famous voices of Wisdom by WESA! Here is the final result.
I have gotten nothing but rave reviews about your team!

Working with Jaime has been an amazing experience. Jaime is very knowledgeable and helped me not only create my podcast, but also handles all of the production [and] distribution. She also understands the business side of podcasting and is very connected in the podcast world. She is the real deal!
Listening at work. Doing a great job [on your International Podcast Day 2019 Presentation].
You did a marvelous job editing. I mean, you are really talented. There were a lot of awkward pauses, and I did not hear any of them!

This is perfect. Outstanding job stitching it all together. Thanks so much!
Thank you, Jaime Legagneur, for being amazing and getting the Self-Care Solutions Podcast up and running!!! You are the best!!!
