You went into your business as a way to help and support other people. So many of the clients I work with have started their business from a personal passion, and a desire to make a positive change in peoples’ lives.
Today’s episode is different from any other episode I’ve done before. You may not recognize our guest, but he’s a master at online content. I discovered Paul Churchill last summer through his Recovery Elevator podcast. It was right around when I started my health journey and started toying with quitting drinking.
In this interview, we talk about the moment when Paul realized that the podcast was so much more than an accountability tool—it was a way to help others and, eventually, to grow a business. I invited Paul onto the podcast to share that your passion CAN become a business.
As you’re listening, I would love to have you listen with the lens of...what’s your passion? Have you built a business around it? Because your audience is waiting for it!
