Today I have the pleasure of having Shannon Dalton Giordano from Serendipity Social Media, Inc. on the podcast. I met Shannon through Eileen Cox from True To Choice who I had met through Mary Cravets and her excellent Watch Us THRIVE online Zoom calls.

“I'm a singer and love to sing just for fun, not professionally. So I think about Tone of Voice as how we show up. It's the words we use. It's the way we talk. It's t...

The journey of a writer that took him to podcasting.

Since I recently started writing I’ve noticed a few things that may be apparent to you, but they certainly weren’t to me. As I’ve said before in previous episodes, writing with intention is a new experience for me.

In the middle of the audio edit of this episode, it dawned on me how clearly Kent is as a communicator. I’ve been experiencing a similar “clarity” in my thinking since...

With podcasting, when you have a good “dynamic” microphone and learn how to use it, you’ll be up close and personal with the person you’re having a conversation with. You’ll experience the person more fully, which makes it easier to “empathize” and BE  WITH the person you’re talking with, resulting in a more meaningful conversation. 

I started out the day by outlining a “solo” episode with the topic “Up Close and Personal,” the adv...

    We’re going to take a bit of detour here before we get back to the conversation first started in episode 12 talking about our process for podcast brand discovery.

    During this pandemic, I know we’re all itching to get back to live face to face events. What if you had someone from a company that was a global leader in meetings procurement and site selection to handle ALL of your needs without needing to pay anything for it?

    As a PSA, today I’m talking with Lauren Vang from HelmsBrisoce who does exactly that. If you’re planning a large wedding, cruise, or any meeting type with a group of people...

    My guests on this episode have got my attention for several good reasons: 

    I admire the environmental work they do in promoting the restoration and preservation of a natural resource in my own community of Carlsbad, California. And I’m eager to help them succeed in their mission by starting a podcast about specific aspects of the ecosystem and their role in it, like their Monarch butterfly program.
