182 The One Where We Share How We Create The Podcast
Scaling UP! Nation, after multiple listeners called or wrote in asking how we create the weekly podcast, we decided to devote today’s episode to how we make the most popular water treaters podcast happen for you, our listeners.
Today I have guests Lauren Vonfeldt and Sean Dooley on the show with me. Lauren is my Executive Assistant, and she does everything from booking the guests, to creating the website posts, to designing and executing our marketing campaigns.
Sean is our audio magician. He is an Audio Engineer and makes our episodes sound fantastic by eliminating unwanted sounds, making transitions seamless, and polishing the episodes with added touches to make them sound great each and every week.
Lauren and Sean have brought their expertise, passion, and positivity to every episode we have done over the past four years, and I could not create this weekly podcast without them.
Our show is continually improving because of our listeners, and we would love to hear from YOU! If you have not yet, please click the “submit a show idea” at the top of our site and let us know what you would like on future episodes.
