Rob is putting Milwaukee first!

04/17/2020
Rob is doing a great job of putting Milwaukee first. I was really honored to be his guest on the show! We called the episode “The Elephant in the Room” because I’m in an industry fraught with perilous landmines. We address that head-on. Never more thankful than now to have an opportunity for the right people.

Have you ever thought “I’d like to do a podcast….”, and then set that thought aside because you’re thinking  “I wouldn’t know where to start”. I have the answer to that PLACE TO START. Reach out to Rob Kochanski at Local First Podcast. In addition to making it incredibly easy, Rob makes it FUN, and he makes you completely relaxed. It is just having a conversation with him on whatever the topic may be….the guy is a genius when it comes to asking the right questions to pull the information out of you.  I was lucky enough to do a podcast with Rob and we were laughing and smiling the entire time--- and, a snippet of that podcast resides on the home page of our website, talking about who we are and the culture of our organization.  We have also used that clip on Facebook and on LinkedIn to grow awareness of our organization.  So, again, I say --- if you are thinking “how do I go about doing a podcast”, you NEED to reach out to Rob!

About me and my podcast

Anytime I travel I find myself going into the neighborhoods searching for local places to eat, to shop. It's the only way to go. I'm not one that goes to big chain stores or dining.

If this sounds like you, you are going to enjoy Local First
