tmm-joel-boggess-blog-image.png

Joel Boggess – author, speaker, broadcast journalist – and host of the highly-acclaimed podcast “Re-Launch” with over 200,000 listeners – joined me for a conversation about how to build your influence, whether in front of an audience or over the airwaves. Joel is a generous spirit – giving so thoughtfully of his expertise in the podcasting community, which is where I met him! Together we talked about the growth of Re-Launch, and how he’s translated his expertise to become a teacher and mentor through his speaking engagements. Enjoy!

Show highlights: On Bringing Your Story to Life

"There's almost no more intimate connection than a #podcast." ~@JoelBoggess on @ThisMovedMe"

On the show, we talked about:

  • Joel's history and experience as a communicator
  • The growth trajectory of his podcast, and how he's brought his expertise to his audiences
  • The essential trust between speaker and audience - and how to build that
  • What community has to do with our work as speakers
  • The power of MESSAGE to connect us with each other

This Moved Me Moments:

JOEL: Received a very personal letter and package from a listener letting Joel know of the hope and inspiration he's found through the Re-Launch show, and giving him hope to move forward. That kind of feedback is so powerful! Thanks for sharing, Joel...

SALLY:  Went to a live event and got to experience the delight and thrill of "live" events! Marlon James and Dave Eggers with the MOI -  Two people, in conversation. The intimacy of their conversation was moving and powerful! A reminder that conversations that can happen on a podcast or between two people on stage can be so powerful when people can listen in on them!

Thanks for listening. I'm grateful for you,

Dr. Nick Morgan (a guest on This Moved Me) created the Presentation Prep Course. It's like having Nick coach you - which is no small thing! Nick is the ultimate pro - and I myself have walked through this course. It's so incredibly helpful and full of insight and tools.

And, I cannot forget the editing geniuses at We Edit Podcasts! They are so on the ball.  Just last week I hadn't heard from my editor - which was strange - and so I sent an email expressing my concern. I got a phone call back from the FOUNDER, assuring me all was well. That's what I call service. Please trust me - I have saved so many hours by having these folks take on the nit-picky task of editing my shows for me. If you have a podcast - or want to create a podcast - this is sooooo worth it.
