[150] Behind the scenes of my business

When I asked listeners how I should mark the 150th of episode of the Soulful PR podcast,  they said they wanted to know more about me and how the show is put together.  So in this episode, I’m answering the questions rather than asking them.

In this episode, I’m interviewed by my friend Rob Lawrence - host of the Inspirational Creatives podcast.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • My business story - from national newspaper journalist to podcast host, author and PR coach
  • How I’ve built the Soulful PR audience to 25,000 monthly downloads
  • Why I think making mistakes - and learning from them - is a key part of my success
  • My biggest fears about my business
  • Insight into what I spend money on to develop my business
  • Examples of how I come up with ideas for content (and keep my output so high)
  • How I switch off from my business and unwind
  • The people and businesses that inspire me
