Authors and speakers have the benefit of having excellent content under their belt and as communicators their messaging is clear. All of this lends itself naturally to podcasting.  So if you're an author looking to expand your audience and you haven't explored highly targeted podcast appearances, you need to listen to this episode. You have a distinct advantage on podcasts and it's a no-cost way to get your message around your book and expertise out to new audiences who are already thirsty for what you're offering. In this episode, I explore the benefits of podcasting for authors as well as specific ways you can repurpose your content and podcast appearances to get more reach and spend less time coming up with social media content.   Mentioned in this episode...

Moms in business often search for other successful moms and women in biz who've created something special that resonates with their own ideals and dreams. We see her as a symbol. If she can do it, why not me? takes a while to find that person who reflects the qualities you connect with including thinking BIG and achieving something more substantial with meaning. Greta Bajrami is that rare find. Greta is the Owner and Founder of Golden Group Construction. She started the company at just 21 years old while still attending Worcester State University. And nothing in Greta's upbringing or early adult life hinted that she would step into a male-dominated industry as a young mom and fresh college grad. She hustled her days in college and nights she learned customer service waiting tables at Legal Seafoods. But when she and her husband Freddy sparked an idea for the roofing industry, they shared a big vision and went for it. Together they built a trustworthy company built on integrity, a high level of personalized customer service, attention to detail, and utmost respect for homeowners. All these qualities and years of hard work created a multimillion dollar company while Greta was still in her twenties -- she's barely 30 now! She embodies the bold character and tenacity I think of when I envision an Audacious Mama. She is it! I'm proud to share her story here, I hope you will too! Mentioned in this interview....

In this episode, I interview Justin Schenck, Entrepreneur and Beloved  Host of the Growth Now Movement podcast. Justin is interested in inspiring personal growth and shining the spotlight on those who've overcome major challenges and adversity. And how to lead and help others but sharing how NOT to make the same mistakes you have. We have a unique opportunity to tap into podcasting right now mamas! Justin shares why podcasting is so powerful and the fact that there's a need for women to share their voice and perspectives. There are very few female podcasters and possibly even fewer female podcast guests. I know, it sounds crazy but it's true. If 100K podcasts are launched in a single month, imagine how many podcasts you can potentially pitch yourself to and start getting more exposure for your business, your mission, or your personal brand.

I'm so proud of this interview with Leah Carey, Host of Good Girls Talk About Sex and Sexual Communication Coach. She's an incredibly articulate and sensitive interviewer who gives women the opportunity to share their intimate thoughts and experiences related to sex. Her show is a guilty pleasure and a window into women's minds and sexual behavior. We discuss coming of age in an emotionally abusive relationship and how that impacted Carey's perspective on sex, her sexual choices, and shut her down from the experience of pleasure and voicing her desires. On the upside she's made this her career now and is sex positive - emphasizing communication for partners so everyone expresses their needs, has them met, and enjoys sex - that's the goal anyway.

Listen to your intuition. Believe in the ideas and the sense of things you have deeply embedded in your heart and mind. Focus on the optimistic positive outcomes in spite of what seems present. You will begin to see changes and your expected results.  Here Steph shares where she's heading with the two podcasts, what's around the corner, and a powerful message of hope that arose from a distant bleak memory of leading a double life and living in fear.  A favorite relevant passage from a special book by Ernest Holmes, The Thing Called You. "It is certain that you must fast from fear if you wish to establish faith. You must fast from confusion if you hope to enter into tranquility. It matters not if your transitions from the negative into the affirmative seems slow, if the ascent from your valley of negation to the mountain top of realization seems difficult. Each step will bring you nearer the summit." Here for digital strategies and tips?  Check out -> The 6-Step Formula for Creating Succesful Promo Videos Check out -> Your Social Roadmap.
