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!
