Good episode? Give it some love!
Episode 067. “That’s why I love podcasting… it creates a whole new platform that I was a fan of before but now it’s just part of the way I do business.” ~Paul Reilly
Do you love selling ?! Yeah, me neither. 
Lucky for us, guest  Paul Reilly* does. Paul is the creator of The Q and A Sales Podcast a show that, unsurprisingly, answers questions about the art and business of selling. He’s also a prolific speaker, trainer, and author. 
Here’s the thing: whether you podcast to gain clients or “just” to scratch a creative itch, you’re also selling something. A service. A product. An opinion about _insert your favorite pop culture reference here because I’m not going down a “This Is Us” rabbit hole_. That said, podcasters (and wannabes) can learn a lot from pro sales people - especially those with successful shows. 
Prior to COVID-19, Paul hosted on average 120 in-person seminars around the country per year.  Considering lockdown restrictions have slashed approximately 70% from his income, you’d think Paul’s shift includes a hard-sell of his virtual offerings.
Nope. Instead, he’s gone full-court free support, doubling up his episode and offering no-cost content access. 
That community over clients approach stems entirely from Paul’s response to podcasting’s fundamental question: what is your why? (Seriously - you know how this podcast boss feels about that question!)
*Paul Reilly is a valued client of The Creative Impostor Studios.
