Chosen out of 16,000 - Once Upon a Gene Wins an Award and a Trip, and, and...With Effie Parks
Effie Parks hosts the http://www.onceuponagene.com (Once Upon a gene) podcast. Her son was born with a rare disease and it left her feeling completely isolated. She created the podcast to find other parents who are raising a kid with a rare disease. It's full of resources and personal stories from families who are navigating this unique lifestyle. Because of Her PodcastAs Effie put it the phrase "Award-winning podcast" "is wild to say and even think this would be a thing when I started the show two years ago, out of desperation. http://www.wegohealth.com (Wego health) and https://health-union.com/ (Health Union) have a yearly ceremony, where they honor digital advocates in the health industry. Your show first has to be nominated, then endorsed or voted on by the public for about a month. And then you're taken to a finalist round and ultimately chosen by a panel of judges 15,000 Total nominations. And there's 16 winners. When I watched the announcement ceremony online, I burst into tears. I didn't expect to win, obviously. But I also didn't expect to feel that much gratitude that the work I was doing was being recognized and making such an impact. That's not all. They flew us all of the winners in our categories to Boston Gave us a $3,000 ticket to the world's largest health conference Paid for three nights in a gorgeous hotel on the water They interviewed us with fancy cameras and lights Fed us lunch every day Held a formal ceremony at the conference with a huge stage and big screens. In the middle of the room at this massive event. I got to meet a woman who became a close personal friend to me online. Because we're both raising kids of rare disease. I got to meet her in person. I met other beautiful advocates and was just so honored to be in their presence. The team itself who put on the event were there every step of the way. And they were so genuine and passionate. It was like a love fest. And I felt so incredibly lucky and special. I also made a lot of great connections that perhaps I will share later on because of my podcast segment. Thanks for being such a champion for podcasters Dave and for always coming at it with a realness and heart. So, again, my name is Effie Parks host of the Once Upon a gene podcast.

Your podcast will help you land guests, and those guests can then point people to your website. Your website then becomes an audio business card that can capture people's attention. This is what the VR Workforce Studio Podcast Does. Here is a note from Rick Sizemore on how he got a big guest, who then got his podcast in front of a big audience. We are all excited here in Virginia because the NRA is holding their fall conference here in Richmond. No not the gun NRA but the National Rehabilitation Association. We have been working with noted Rehabilitation Professional, Sam Rothrock, who is going to be at the conference talking about how social media and particularly podcasting is becoming a powerful tool in workforce development and disability employment. He asked us where he could get some data on podcasting so we were quick to point him to the School of Podcasting Episode 452 with all those wonderful stats and the show notes filled with all the data we podcasters low to talk about. So while this is going on we got a call from Scott Dunnell with the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification which happens to be the worlds largest organization certifying rehabilitation professionals and counselors. We were able to get Scott on the VR workforce studio podcast alongside our Big Inspiration Showcase with Brian Evans. Brian, an executive with Bank of America, http://vrworkforcestudio.com/the-brian-evans-story/ (tells the story of his near death motorcycle accident), his recovery and returning to work at the bank through assistive technology and voc rehab. This gave Scott the perfect opportunity to reflect on an inspiring rehab counseling story and to discuss CRCC's launch of their new e university. CRCC posted the episode on their website and its getting lots of downloads from their membership, many of whom will be at NRA along with CRCC. So because of our podcast, many of the attendees will have heard about the VR Workforce Studio Podcast from a major conference exhibitor who will be just across the hall from a presentation where clips from our podcast will be part of the discussion on how podcasting can help people with disabilities, professionals and employers who are concerned with disability employment and vocational rehabilitation. So through one episode we have become involved in a major conference with attendees before they arrive will be part of promoting a major exhibitors products and support on of the key presentations.
