Tell us about your podcast
Accelerate Your Business Growth podcast
Featured on Inc.com’s list of 100 Podcasts That Will Make You Smarter, Better, and Wiser, MSNBC’s Your Business, and on the Fit Small Business list of best small business podcasts, this show is designed to help small business owners, salespeople, and aspiring entrepreneurs with the various aspects of business success. We have a great lineup of guests and topics scheduled. We’ll be talking about everything from sales to employee issues; from technology to social media; from work-life balance to exploring uncharted territory. My goal is to help you remove challenges so that you can realize your own success with your business.
Why did you start this podcast?
I started this podcast because I wanted to get as much business information, tips, insights, and ideas into the hands of small business owners as possible. I understood that podcasting provided a great platform for reaching a wide audience.
How long have you been podcasting?
I’ve been podcasting for 10 years.
What do you look for in a guest?
My ideal guest is someone with expertise in an area of business. They want to share that expertise with others and are able to participate in a conversation. They do not talk about themselves, their journey, their business, or their book. The sole focus is on their knowledge and they understand the format is conversational and are comfortable speaking about what they know.

Is there anything else you’d like to share?
I am grateful for the many companies and publicists who send me their clients. I’m also grateful for the people who are experts in their field and give of their time and talent to help my listeners succeed.
