Whether on the deck of a cruise ship or within the nurturing walls of a retreat center, we celebrate the collective breakthroughs that transpire when individuals come together to invest in their aspirations. Caterina Rando is on a mission to teach, mentor, and support women to be themselves, do their thing, serve their people and massively monetize their mastery.

If you're a savvy coach, consultant or subject matter expert who speaks to get the word out about what it is you do, you know the value of stage time. A podcast is essentially stage time.

Maybe it's your favourite thought leader, or YOUR coach (who's further along on their journey and has a huge community you can leverage). Being a guest though is a huge responsibility...and today's guest as learned, not just how to get booked on any podcast, but how to get booked on the shows that have skyrocketed his brand, his business and his credibility.  From his punk days squatting in London and barefoot backpacking years on the Indian sub-continent, right through to senior leadership within a multi-national company, Jem Fuller has lived the extremes.His stories and life lessons draw from experiences as an actor and singer-songwriter, global tattooist, fire dancer, kindergarten teacher and volunteer in Asia, motorcycle courier and travel consultant, Reflexologist and Chinese Masseuse, and in the last decade, leader of retreats in the Himalaya and advisor to executive leaders.Jem's Gift:Mindfullness Made Easyhttps://jemfuller.teachable.com/p/mindfulness-made-easyUse code: PODCASTConnect with Jem:Websitehttps://jemfuller.com/LinkedInhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/jemfuller/?originalSubdomain=auFacebookhttps://www.facebook.com/jemfuller.meInstagramhttps://www.instagram.com/jemfuller/Other resources:Grab your copy of Jem's e-book:https://jemfuller.com/download-ebook/Check out Podmatch:https://podmatch.comGot a question about something you heard today?

Crafting Connections Through Podcast Evolution and Audience Engagement
If you want to learn anything these days you can just 'Google that.' Everything from how to bake a cake to what ailment you have.  The challenge is there is a lot of misinformation being shared out there, and not just on the worldwide web. Some well meaning yet misguided business coaches, agencies, even places of higher education are sharing the WRONG INFORMATION when it comes to navigating the podcasting space.  When I first launched the Speaking of Speaking podcast, my mission was simple: help others overcome their fear of public speaking. But as my journey unfolded, I found the conversation naturally broadening to encompass the vast landscape of communication strategies. In the heart of this episode, I peel back the layers of podcasting purpose, sharing how a strong 'why' is the bedrock of any show. It's a tale of transformation, from my initial focus on tackling speaking anxiety to the rich discussions on communication that now define the podcast. I'll walk you through the importance of aligning your podcast's mission with your personal evolution and how that resonance is felt by every listener tuning in.Wrapping up, we open the floor to you, our community, inviting your voice into the mix. Whether it's through comments, reviews, or guest suggestions, each interaction weaves you into the fabric of our growing network. And for those ready to step behind the mic themselves, consider this an open call to join the conversation that extends beyond these episodes—because podcasting isn't just about reaching the earbuds of the world, it's about creating a dialogue that bridges over 3 million passionate voices.

Tony's story of crafting the perfect podcast episode—a harmonious blend of his professional knowledge and personal commitments—is an inspiration to anyone feeling the crunch of the clock. Our conversation is a treasure trove for those looking to create impactful, concise content that resonates with listeners and doesn't require an open-ended time commitment.Connecting to Spirit and the energies that surround others are just two of Tony Gyenis’s many abilities. He understands how to move energy like a stream moves water, and works with his clients to give them the energetic assistance they need. Never doubting Spirit and the instructions given to him, Tony is a true messenger of divine energy.Tony pursued a formal education in Feng Shui, with the intention to share what he learned with others, spreading prosperity. This pursuit then led him to learn other crafts, such as Vibrational Healing Sound Therapy, Angel Therapy, and Mediumship with Doreen Virtue.

Breaking Through the Competition Myth to Find Your Place in the Podcasting Universe
Ever felt like a tiny fish in the vast podcast ocean, swimming alongside giants like Oprah and Tony Robbins? That's where I found myself, grappling with the 'competition myth' before launching my very own podcast, Speaking of Speaking. But through this episode of Communication Connection Community, I'll guide you past those colossal shadows into the light of opportunity waiting for every aspiring podcaster. Together, let's break down the barriers that might be holding you back and debunk the fear of an overcrowded marketplace, showing you how there's still plenty of room for your unique voice and content.Today's discussion isn't just for the podcasting pros, but also for bloggers and beginners ready to amplify their message. We'll explore how merging blogging with podcasting can catapult your content into the hands of an audience that's on the move, hungry for knowledge they can consume anywhere, anytime. Forget the daunting statistics and focus on the potential for connection - because for every 500 blogs cluttering the digital landscape, there's only one podcast reaching out for a listener's attention.

Converging Paths in Podcasting: Tales of Grit, Growth, and Amplifying Your Voice
Have you ever wondered how two distinct podcasting paths can converge into one electrifying journey? That's exactly what Jeff Dwoskin and I tackle, sharing a laugh or two while dissecting the DNA of our podcasting adventures. With candid tales from the trenches of digital strategy and marketing, Jeff illuminates wisdom only a true connoisseur of conversation could provide. We reveal the gritty reality of podcast perseverance, likening it to the endurance needed to pen a novel, and the sheer determination to overcome the dreaded 'pod fade.'Reaching out to high-profile guests often feels like throwing a message in a bottle into a sea of uncertainty, doesn't it? Jeff and I swap stories of those nail-biting moments, from the sting of rejection to the thrill of an unexpected "yes" that turns the tide in our favour. We peel back the curtain on the art of networking and the golden rule of persistence, embodying the spirit of independent podcasters who bravely stand their ground amid the glitz of celebrity-backed shows. It's a reminder that every 'no' has a silver lining, potentially paving the way to a future 'yes.'Then there's that moment when you realize your content is being drowned out by the din of social media trivialities—an experience shared among creators, including myself in my 20-year comedic venture. That's why we introduce Stampede Social, the game-changer for podcasters seeking to amplify their Instagram presence. As we draw this auditory escapade to a close, our hearts are full of gratitude for the listeners and the behind-the-scenes maestros who keep our podcast wheels turning. We're eager for you to join the ongoing conversation, share your thoughts, and become a part of this ever-expanding podcasting community.Got a question about something you heard today?
