And Michelle was just on my local podcast panel, which was for the Fraser valley. That’s sort of the area where I live in.

I just had to invite her she’s well, a well-known podcast consultant and service provider in. In Canada here and throw the U S so I’m so thrilled, but it’s going to take me three flights. Is it taking you three flights to get there? Michelle, I can meet you. And a theory though, and a theory I got to get to the very first and then the flights were going to lung journey together.

We’re going to have so much fun. All right. So who’s up to us. Marion Marion blink cough. Yes. Marion is a producer. You guys, and I’m so excited. She’s here with us. Marianne, introduce yourself. Tell us about you and your podcast. I beautiful, powerful ladies. This is such a treat for me. Unlike the rest of you.
I am behind the scenes. I don’t have my own podcast. I am the podcast producer of my husband’s podcast called life of awesome, which as you all know, it takes a village. So it is a family affair. But I am not on camera. Normally. I am not in front of the camera. I’m not in front of the voice of the podcast, but I am behind the scenes.
Life of awesome was born out of the pandemic. Um, Realizing that the neat I’ll tell you similar to Michelle. This was a podcast in the works four years ago when my husband was on another, um, very successful podcast called don’t keep your day job by Cathy Heller. And to this day, it’s one of her most best performed, um, podcast episodes, which is in good company.
Uh, so she was saying way back then. So you have to start a podcast. For years in the making here, we are life of awesome launched a year ago. We just celebrated our one-year mark. And, um, and it’s really celebrating the successes of everyday life. It’s it’s celebrating successful people, but who are not only successful at their careers, but really successful at life and talking about meaning and fulfillment through storytelling and.
And examples of wisdom through movies and film and animation. My husband’s a storyteller at Disney and, uh, that’s where he’s spent most of his career and me to the early days now, a mother of four and a, a pandemic puppy mom. And I’m helping behind the scenes producing podcasts, getting our interviews out there, getting him out there, um, as well as, uh, putting the messages out there on social media.
So I’m thrilled and honored to be a new. Among you beautiful women on this panel. Thank you, Jennifer. Have frat. Oh, so thrilled. You’re here and we’ve been connected for a couple of years through the women on podcasts in group, on Facebook. And I love seeing Saul’s stuff pop up. You guys do such a great job.
It’s so positive and just really energizing. So thanks for sharing your voice. All of you have amazing podcasts. I’m just so thrilled that we’re all going to get to meet in person. And so what I want to know, what I want to ask you now is. Because of my podcast and fill in the blank, you know, how are you helping people, reaching people?
What are you, how is it helping your business to so give us any insights you want to share so that people can really see how a podcast can help them if they don’t have a podcast yet, or for those who have a podcast, maybe they’re struggling and anything you say could really help. Martine fill in the blanks because of my podcast.
Well, before I fill in the blanks, I have to talk about my podcasts. I didn’t even know, mentioned it when I did my intro. And so my podcast is called visualize and create it’s essentially what I have used. That’s my motto sitting in my nine to five cubicle, uh, when the light bulb turned on and I’m like, okay, I have to start visually.
Where else can I be other than this cubicle? And I started to create. And so my podcast is all about curating, amazing people from all walks of life, to come through and talk about how they’ve been able to create their lifestyle, whether it’s their business or health and whatnot. Um, and, and by visualizing it first and creating it.
And so because of my podcast, I’ve had the opportunity to really build on. The speaking business and also building my confidence, right. As an entrepreneur, um, being out there and really getting better at networking, I have to say, um, and I’ll leave you with this because of my podcast. I’m feeling dual blanks here.
I’ve been able to convert clients. I’m not going to lie. It’s happened. It’s happened. And I love being on podcasts myself as a guest. Um, it’s such a great medium to build a personal, uh, bread. And so I feel. I think. Yeah. Awesome. Thank you so much, Martine. Yes. And you would bring so much energy to, it’s really a fun podcast to listen to.
Thank you so much. So Tiffany Kane, this question is so amazing and rich and juicy, and I could talk for hours probably about, because of my podcast. I feel like every single thing in my life has changed. From the ground roots level of my personal confidence, my personal I’m opening my circle of friends and influence.
And that, that just the people, you know, when you bring people on your podcast and they’re experts in their field, it’s like getting a college course every single time somebody comes in. So I feel Richard. Personally because of my podcast, I get to reach out to people, amazing authors, amazing coaches, amazing people that are just overcoming so many things in their life that I would never have reached out for.
Had I just stayed in my public education career because of my podcast. I am not signing. Contract for my public education career. And I’m going full time into my business that I got to start because of my podcast, which is a media production company. Helping people tell their stories and get their voices out.
I specialize with women and their second act kind of how I’m in my second act who are waking up and saying, wait, okay, I’ve done everything I should do. And it just doesn’t quite feel right. Life is a little bit gray. I want to live in Technicolor. How do I do that? And so I am the heck yes, coach helping people to live life in Technicolor, helping people to live like.
Beautifully. And so many times that happens because of a podcast, because we get to tell our stories and I can continue talking, but I’m going to let some of the other ladies talk. But, um, yeah, you can tell, I just love podcasts. Awesome. And I just loved it. We probably, you and I might know each other, the least amount of time, but we connected right away and we got on an interview together and we were like geeking out about Mike’s.
You can hear that episode in the women in podcasting.show. You can go listen to that episode. If you want to know more about mikes, Tiffany brought all her expertise. It was such a fun episode. So up next, Kimmy seltzer. Yeah. And I’m so happy that I’m going after you, Tiffany, because you were the person you live and breathe Technicolor.
I just want to like highlight the fact she walks the walk and talks the talk. We just did a podcast together. And that is one of the advantages of, you know, having a podcast is connecting with amazing people. I mean, I think I’m echoing everything that everyone’s saying, but because of my pod. And networking.
And the connections that have been made have been just off the charts, you know, and I’ve been doing this for about five, six years. And because of that also how I’ve been elevating my voice, you know, on top of it as an expert, as an influencer, but also the know like, and trust factor as I was talking about before with my clients.
So I think the biggest advantage for me that I found is that sale. It’s so much easier when they listen to your podcast. Right? Cause they, they actually use my language. I don’t even have to when I’m on a sales call. So if you are selling a high ticket coaching program, it’s almost like effortless, you know, if they want to move on and, and be with you, just a cute, funny story to end on.
I was picking up a call the other day where I offer these free break through calls. Right. And that’s. Really I saw and there was this woman, her name was Betsy. And I said, hi, Betsy, how are you? And there was nothing on the other line. I thought, you know, maybe I had the wrong number. And also she’s like, no, no, no, don’t hang up.
I was just that I’ve been listening to for so long. Like I just got freaked out that you said my name. And it was like, that’s the kind of thing that happens over and over again where, you know, it’s like, Everybody’s friend and they really trust you. So to me, that’s priceless. And if anyone, I encourage anyone who is thinking about using their podcasts to leverage their coaching program, there’s nothing like it.
No, that’s such a great point. That’s awesome. Thanks for sharing that up next is Michelle. Sure. Yeah. Oh my gosh. I can also echo everything. All these ladies are saying. Um, because of my podcast, I’ve been able to speak in seven from countries about podcasting. I’ve been able to launch 300 shows and help 300 people’s voices be heard and make an impact in their world.
Um, and because of my pocket, I am now able to, well, actually this is funny, just what Tiffany was saying. I think because of my podcasts, one of them is called blissful parenting. And I do that podcast purely because I become a much better parent. There is no other reason for doing that podcast other than I get to glean all the expertise of these amazing parenting experts hour after hour, each week.
Awesome. My other podcasts amplify you is really the tool I use to grow my business. And I love that and they wouldn’t have been able to grow my business without the podcast first. So using the podcast, I’ve been able to offer and lead with service. So that’s the one, the main thing for me, because of my podcast.
I get the lead with service. I’ve never had the, uh, no to, would you like to come and be on my podcast? It is like, The question you can ask to open doors and it would start relationships and get to know people on a accelerated level. Having an hour of hot conversation on a podcast is it’s, it’s like 10 coffee dates all in one.
So there’s been so many collaborations in my business. I would not have be where it is without the collaborations that have come from meeting people and interviewing them or going on other shows and being interviewed on podcasts. Oh, that’s so awesome. You know, Michelle, I don’t know if I’ve shared this with you, but through the pandemic, I had three different people contact me saying, remember that workshop you had with Michelle Abraham way back in, what was it?
- I finally started my podcast. Three, three people. It’s just incredible. The connections we make through this medium is just amazing. Melanie Benson because of my podcast. I have so many things I could share. I’ve been podcasting since podcasting really started like 10, 11 years ago. Uh I’m on my second podcast.
And one of the things I can say about because of my podcast, I was able to. Trick like transformed the road warrior mode of being everywhere to speak and share my message, which wasn’t what I wanted anymore to having a way to share my message from like one room where I don’t have to get on a plane. And I am I’m impacting the lives of people all over the world.
Like are my show. I feel so grateful. It’s steadily staying in the one point by a percent range of top podcasts all over the world. We’re in about 30 or 40 countries now I can’t even keep up. But it is so fulfilling to know that I’m able to transform lives and not have to leave my, my desk anymore. Um, the other thing that I’ll just echo a couple of really extraordinary insights that has already been shared.
My podcast is like my warmup act and. I have found accidentally, like I didn’t really start. I started my podcast to open up collaboration opportunities. That’s truly what I started for. I wanted to collaborate with other people. I knew it was one of the most impactful to give an opportunity, a platform to somebody else and to open up that the energy of reciprocity.
And I just knew. I knew it was going to be an easy way to create new collaboration partners. What I, what happened as a result of starting my podcast was how many times somebody would hear me speak on someone else’s podcast. They would come binge my podcast and then say, how do I hire you? And so I felt like it was just such a powerful.
Authority and credibility enhancement process. It just kept me going and thank you, Jennifer, for that lovely compliment. Uh, we, we have a machine called how do we produce the podcast? And I think it’s one of the things that helps the podcast be successful is the podcast goes out with, or without me, like, it’s just, is this going to go and having a machine built around it, I think is one of the little secrets to having a podcast that.
Keeps growing and you don’t get into that pod fade mode so I could share a gazillion, other tips and insights, but I’ll save them for when we get to pod Fest. Yes. Yes. I hope everyone can join us at podcast. So thank you so much, Melanie. I love your points to. Everybody we’ve interviewed, we’ve stayed in touch with and done amazing collaborations with that interview really forms a bond.
I know you and Martine were some of the first ones we had on our inspiring influencers podcast. And you guys were such pros and, you know, Melanie you’ve helped me over the years. I remember when I first learned about audio grams, I said to Melanie, how are you doing that? What is that? And she said, oh, it’s called an audio graph.
Use headliner and to generate audio grams. So, oh, Melanie, you’ve been such a help to me. And so up next, Mary and blink off tell us because of my podcasts. Wow. I’m so inspired by what everyone just shared. And there’s so many directions to go in here. Um, but similar to medicine. Uh, my husband saw, had a speaking career prior to the podcast.
Um, he traveled the world. I got to travel a bit with him as well. And book those gigs, sharing his story. It’s basically called my Disney tale of how he achieved his dream of becoming a Disney animator. But what happened and when I’m packed at what unfolded was, as he was sharing the story and people were asking why you want a Ted talk, or why aren’t you having written your book, or why don’t you have a podcast?
Um, He was realizing as he was sharing his story messages that he was struggling through at the time it could have been parenting lessons. It could have been career advice. It could have been, um, marriage stuff. Uh, it could have just been self-growth and self-improving. So as he writes his episodes, I noticed a growth in him, which is very beautiful and personal to me that he’s reminding himself what he needs to hear.
And he’s bringing on guests, like for instance, part of his Disney tale story. And if you come to pod Fest, you’ll hear it on Friday. He’s sharing it on the main stage. Is that. He saw a movie that changed his life, a few of them, and I’m not going to get, take you through the whole story of how he wanted to become a director.
And then he realized you could combine directing in animation and you wanted to become an animator. And then he saw the movie that did it all because he didn’t get into Disney right away on his first time. His second time, third time. Um, he did similar to the movie. Rudy, have you ever heard that one?
Yeah, a lot of thumbs up. So it’s the movie of the football player. Who’s five feet, nothing. Not a speck of athletic ability and he wants to play football for Notre Dame. He’s not even all that smart, but he perseveres, he perseveres and he doesn’t give up on his dream similar to my husband. Hence Rudy Ruediger the real Rudy was our first guest on the podcast, which was super meaningful personally and professionally.
I used to be a producer at Disney and I took a hiatus as a mom of four and I was home. Raising my children, but it’s been really impactful to see not only soul inviting certain guests that had an impact on his life personally, but now that we’ve opened the doors of networking and collaborating, and I recommend to all your listeners to get on clubhouse, that was a really, really good, um, outlet for us to.
Share on stages and get on other people’s podcasts and just get the message out there. I think, you know, everyone has a stage with a voice podcast, clubhouse stage jumping on social media and sharing your voice that it’s really important to remember and remind ourselves, everyone has a story to share, and everyone has an impact.
And everyone has growth to get through on their own. So it’s a beautiful combination. I think podcasting has really opened the doors for more personal and self-growth development, as well as, um, making incredible connections along the way. Oh, so inspiring. You guys just inspire Paula and I so much. We need to swap interview still.
Yeah. All right. So I wanted to just close today’s episode just by getting your last thoughts. Anything you want to add, let’s start with Tiffany, Tiffany, anything you want to add? I want to add what an honor it is to be with these amazing inspiring women because of you, Jennifer. I have. Had the privilege of having several of these limited on my podcast, I’ve been on their podcasts.
I’m just, it’s so exciting to be meeting new, powerful, beautiful, influential women that are making a difference in the world and are getting more women’s stories told. And that to me is the biggest honor of all. We’re not being left out of the history books anymore. We now have a platform and we are making the difference in the world.
In the way that women should make a difference in the world. And that’s just really exciting. Uh, if more, if more people would like to get in touch with me, I do have a video course that I’m, uh, giving for free, which is about how having a podcast can help you to have a five figure course launch. And just like, you’ve heard so many people talk in this group, it’s kind of like, it’s a natural people just want to buy what from you when you do a good job with your podcast, because they feel so connected.
And so I have a little video course about that, that I’d love to share with. Oh, that’s such a wonderful gift. Thank you so much. I’ll make sure to put the link to that in the show notes. Thank you for sharing. And thanks so much for your kind words. You know, I just love creating communities and I love connecting people and you know, I’m not the most confident person.
I’ve always struggled with my self esteem and, you know, have all the issues, anxiety, and things like that. But you know what, just showing up, if you just get yourself to show up that. 80% as they say, right. Just showing up as 80%. And then if you can just show up it doesn’t, it doesn’t have to be. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
Right. And that’s what I love about our community. We’ve just all accepted each other. And you know, I feel like I found my home. This is totally my tribe. So I’m so honored as well to have all of you here. So, Martine, yes, this is what I would love to leave everybody with you’ve listening right now. Your voice is powerful.
Okay. And I have to tell you, even for me, Jennifer, I could definitely relate when you say, you know, I was never. That type that was confident and loud. And you mentioned at the top of the conversation, the energy, right, that developed over time and as a result of making the decision of showing up authentically myself, because for a long time for you listening, the takeaway here is, and first of all, come to podcast to see us.
So you can build that confidence to share your podcast and started if you haven’t done. So yet what’s important is showing you. As yourself and letting yourself also evolve right over time because the podcast and sharing your voice and having other people come on and having those conversations is going to help yourself development.
And so I am all about content. I’m a social media, creator and strategists. And so what I’d love to share with you is my mini book. It’s my very first one. It’s called content to conversion is social media content for beginners. And so if you’re stuck, trying to figure out how to show up, right. Um, this is a great book for you.
It’s 3,400. So very easy to read. I gave you a framework and if you come to podcasts, I’ll answer your questions. If you have any, oh, I love that so much. What a nice gift. That’s so nice. Thank you. I’ll make sure to put that link in the show notes as firstname.lastname@example.org. And I just want to let everybody know Martine is going to be leading a.
Whole segment, a whole breakout session. You guys, you can just come and see Martine at the women and podcasting track at pod Fest and get to meet her and see her speak and get all her tips. She is amazing. So up next, Kimmy cell, sir, do you have anything to add any final words? Idle words of wisdom, what, you know, it’s funny, the power of not only connection, but the synergy.
And that’s why I love, like, there’s a message that’s collective here. Cause I was going to say thing the same thing about connection and the power of networking and you know, my tagline on my. Podcast of the charisma quotion is to build confidence, make connections and find love. And I find that what shows up in dating shows up in business, right.
And, and how we use connection to build our confidence. Right. And, and to create love. And it can be love for women love, you know, it comes in many forms, but one of the things that, um, I find so powerful is what. When you have those connections, because entrepreneurship is such a lonely field. Like we all get into it thinking we’re going to have these like open, flexible lives yet it can be really lonely.
And so when you have opportunities like this to connect on, on a podcast at pod fast, if there’s nothing like. There is nothing like it, the energy that that comes from it. So, um, that what I want to offer is I, when it comes to networking and first impressions, I’m really big on style because I am an image consultant and.
Does pertain to when you’re networking in a group, but also when you’re on a podcast and how that also can make a great first impression. So the style guide that I’d like to offer everybody so that, you know what flatters your figure, what to stay away from, what colors to wear all of that. And you just can go to Kimmy seltzer.com forward slash style.
Oh, nice. That’s perfect. I’ll put a link to it in the show notes too, just for everyone’s convenience, but thank you so much, Kimmy. All right, Michelle Abraham, any closing words? Oh my gosh. It’s just seems all about connection and it’s so true. Like, I can’t say enough about the power of connection through casting.
That is so, so impactful and so powerful. And I just want to say the whole rest of the podcast. Three is really focused on download numbers, but I think as women in podcasting have it right, we’re focused on the relationships, right. And the relationships that you can make through the podcast. And I think that’s fine.
I swim and do so well at that. Right. And we’re natural connectors. We naturally want to see each other succeed. So, um, my one advice is don’t wait till it’s perfect to start a podcast. If you haven’t started it yet. And don’t give up, if you have started it in. Uh, does it need to pod fade out that which means you saw after a few episodes?
All it takes is a little refresh, reignite ignition realignment with what you really want to talk about and keep going. So don’t wait for years, like I did to start your podcast, your voice, and your message is much needed in this world. And I have a profitable podcast or toolkit that I’d love to offer everyone.
And inside there is actually a 21 days where I helped one of my clients go from idea to launching your podcast, plus tons of tools. Templates and all sorts of crazy stuff. Plus some tickets to some other things we have like the podcast sales machine and how to Palooza. So that’s all inside the podcasts.
There’s a toolkit. So please join me there. And I can’t wait to see you guys at a pod fests. And if you need some help with your show notes, I’m doing a workshop at pod Fest about how to do great show notes. So come and join me there as well. Thank you so much. And Michelle, you’re going to be on our mind.
Panel right. Podcasting mindset. That’s right. Awesome. Thank you so much for sharing. Wonderful. Thanks Melanie Benson closing. I second, the whole community, that was like one of the special bonus gifts from starting a podcast, but I actually want to just kind of part with a slightly different, um, Idea. And that is for most of us, especially a lot of the clients I work with.
We know that there’s something much bigger than us. That’s guiding us to show up every day and to get our message out in a bigger way. And I specialize in helping people that feel like a best kept secret, become like a go-to authority in their field. A podcast is one of the most powerful ways that you can.
Stretch into that greater capacity to make a difference in the world and monetize your work. And I just can’t say enough that if you’ve been holding back from stepping into that podcast and starting that podcast or being consistent with that podcast, the world needs what you do and who you are. There are people that are searching for and craving and, and struggling with something that you were put on this planet to do.
So. Get that podcast going. If you’re not ready to do a podcast, get on other people’s podcasts. We need to make a greater difference. We can come together and collectively impact the world. Um, my tip, my resource that I would love to share is I have a framework that I have been using successfully for 15 years now.
And I now teach to my clients. It’s a seven step framework to leverage other people’s audiences. Podcasts are one of them to add another 125,000 to your business or more each year. And I would love to share it with you. If you had to amplify with melanie.com, you can get it for free. And I know Jennifer you’ll link it up in the collective group of resources as well.
It’s a very powerful. It’s a proven strategy that I use over and over and over again, whether I want to ramp things up or I’m starting something new. I use that same framework. Oh, what an amazing gift. Thank you so much, Melanie and Melanie Benson is going to be another one of our breakout speakers or breakout sessions.
All about opp. Right? What is the title again of your second? Uh, how to leverage opp other people’s podcasts to add another six figures to your business, or maybe even seven, depending on where you’re at in your trajectory. Right. So fun. That’s going to be so awesome. I can’t wait for that session. I can’t wait for all the panels and sessions.
I’m so excited, Mary and blink off any closing words. Um, I just like to say that, um, I’m just fully inspired. I can not wait for pod Fest to see you all on your stages on the panels and just take notes because I’m like right here in my brain. Um, but I just want to say that I want to remind all of your listeners just to make sure that.
And we reflect and we remind ourselves every day that no two people are alike. Everyone has unique purpose. Everyone has unique story. And, um, there’s this quote I love to share with share with our kids. Margaret Mead says your unique and special. Just like everyone else. You’re unique and special, but so is everyone else.
You’re part of a larger whole, like this women in podcasting community, we need each other, we need to lean on each other. And my husband gives this great example of the, uh, example in lion king, taking responsibility, you know? Sure. Uh, also should mention, or I’m cutting up together. This. Footage. He was just in the world, happiness summit.
It was just a huge honor to be part of down in Miami. And you know, the ultimate message is yes, happiness is a choice, but also want to remind everyone that, um, taking responsibility is a choice and it’s living a life of purpose, living a life of meaning. Living a life of serving is much bigger than all of us, and it’s a bigger opportunity for happiness.
And that’s where it really comes from taking responsibility. The world through podcasting is huge outlet for that. Oh, so wonderful. So much wisdom here. So much wisdom and the women are getting the party started at pod Fest.
