This week, I'm in Chicago speaking at Podcast Movement. In this episode, I share the outline of my talk where I share the top strategies that the top-ranked independent podcasters have in common.
A Conversation With Aaron Walker
I'm very excited to share a recent conversation that I have with my friend Aaron Walker. We talk about the difference between being a good story teller and understanding that you have a good story to tell. We also talked about mastermind groups and the value of being booked as a podcast guest on other people's podcasts.
In this episode, I allow myself to do use the “live to drive” format to share my thoughts following my experience at Social Media Marketing World 2016.
Update: I totally neglected to share two major takeaways from this event. Much like the others, these takeaways are about taking relationships to the next level. I had the opportunity to walk with Tyler Anderson and Chris Brogan from the speaker party to the opening night networking party held on Midway Aircraft Carrier.
During this 20+ minute walk, we had the type of conversation that takes relationships to a whole new level. I'm deeply honored to have gone much deeper in my friendship with both Tyler and Chris. Guys, I'm so sorry that I neglected to mention just how much of a valuable takeaway our time was together in this episode. I assure you that, looking back, it was at the top of the list.
