Mandy is a great example of someone who launched a podcast as an extension of her existing brand. She already had customers and a community to market to so I wondered... what's that like?

I had Mandy on my show to explore how launching a podcast impacted her business, her personal brand and the process she went through to publishing her first episode.

Ready to launch a show of your own? I'm so proud to have launched my very first online course, after spending a full year testing the content in-person through workshops in Toronto and Vancouver, It's now live!

If launching a podcast is on your 2020 vision board, I'd love to help you make that happen. Friends of the show can benefit from 40% with code "freedomfriends".
