Today I have the pleasure of having Shannon Dalton Giordano from Serendipity Social Media, Inc. on the podcast.

So I think about Tone of Voice as how we show up. It's the words we use. It's the way we talk. It's the way we treat people. And I think that certainly from a brand perspective,...

Ep. 18 Kent Sanders: a Daily Writer and Podcaster

The journey of a writer that took him to podcasting. Since I recently started writing I’ve noticed a few things that may be apparent to you, but they certainly weren’t to me. As I’ve said before in previous episodes, writing with intention is a new experience for me. In the middle of the audio edit of this episode, it dawned on me how clearly Kent is as a communicator. I’ve been experiencing a similar “clarity” in my thinking since starting to write with intention. So this insight was the...

Ep. 15 Up Close and Personal with Kim Shea

With podcasting, when you have a good “dynamic” microphone and learn how to use it, you’ll be up close and personal with the person you’re having a conversation with. You’ll experience the person more fully, which makes it easier to “empathize” and BE WITH the person you’re talking with, resulting in a more meaningful conversation. I started out the day by outlining a “solo” episode with the topic “Up Close and Personal,” the advantages of good microphone technique, with a good...
