When I first started the Starve the Doubts podcast…

One of my goals was to interview Chris Brogan. I have read his blog, books & listened to his podcast. I was fortunate to interview Chris on episode 12 of Starve the Doubts. Chris was kind enough to share that interview with his newsletter. I will never forget that. I had many great guests on the show in the beginning, but almost none of those amazing & generous people shared the podcast. Chris was different. He treated me differently. I have never forgotten that.

I was fortunate to spend some time with Chris at New Media Expo in January of 2014. Dan Franks, Gary Leland, Mitch Todd & I later asked Chris to be our opening keynote speaker for Podcast Movement later that year. Chris did an outstanding job.

Chris interviewed me for his podcast this last week. This is a Starve the Doubts moment for me. It may not seem like a big deal, but it is to me. It is incredible to see the opportunities that have opened up since starting this podcast. It is encouraging to see someone as influential as Chris Brogan treat others with kindness, respect & appreciation. I hope that you will enjoy this episode. It was a tremendous honor to get this opportunity. Please consider checking out Chris’ podcast if for some reason you do not listen to it already.  Note: The original episode file is found here:
