This week’s episode of Beyond Influential is… officially Episode 100! Whether you have been with me since the very beginning or this is your first episode, I want to take this opportunity to be vulnerable and speak directly to you. The first thing I want to say is Thank You. Time is our most valuable asset and it is an honor to have anyone’s time and attention. I am flattered every single time anyone tells me they listen to the podcast. Your messages, your emails, your reviews about any value I’ve provided you – I save all of them because at the end of the day this podcast isn’t about me. It’s about you. My goal is to make sure every episode is about bringing YOU value.
When I started this podcast two years ago, I had a vision for it, and while I knew it wouldn’t be perfect, I was committed to showing up consistently, adding as much value as I could, finding other people who could add value, and improving each and every episode.
And now I’m excited to tell you my vision for this community going forward.
I’ll be continuing to put out the podcast (Cheers to the next 100!), but I wanted to create something else for you.
This community is my number one priority and I want to have a place for those of you who are truly committed to growth and creating what you want to create. It really is possible to do, be, and have what you want – and it’s easier if you’re learning from the right people and with guidance and support.
A message I’ve been hammering home for a while now is how no one does it alone. I’m not alone, you’re not alone, and you don’t need to do it alone or figure it out alone, which is why I’m launching a Beyond Influential Insiders membership!
It will be starting out as a beta test and it will only be open for registration for a limited time. It will be capped to a small group of founding members before I open it up to the public in early 2020.
My vision for the membership is to have one central place where you can go to get trusted advice and insights on building your brand, business, and influence. This will be a place where we can dive deeper into many of the topics I cover on the podcast. When I interview guests for Beyond Influential, I try to go as deep as I can. But there is a limit to how much we can cover in an episode. This membership will be the place where we can go beyond that. We’re talking trainings (by me and guest experts), Live Q&As, and more.
As for why I’m launching Beyond Influential Insiders as a beta test before the full launch?
I didn’t want to wait and take months to build this out and agonize over trying to make it perfect, when I can be talking to you, answering your questions, and bringing you what you need to know right now.
I’m building it from the ground up in a real-time. This membership has been on my radar since early this year, but to me it wouldn’t be right to create it without your input. This membership is not about me, it’s about you, so I want to include you in that building process. I want this to be a collaborative effort to deliver on exactly what you want and need. I talk about knowing your audience. The best way for me to deliver is through this membership.
As I go through the beta, I’ll be talking more about what the full membership will look like as we get closer to the official launch in 2020.

Now, on to this week’s episode! I’ve been reflecting a lot on where I started with Beyond Influential, and where it is today, 100 episodes later, and I thought it would only be fitting to have a conversation with someone who has been with me since the very start of this podcast – my editor, Chris Mann of Podshaper. We’re going behind the scenes, where we chat about how Chris got into podcast editing and started his business, the evolution of Beyond Influential – how it got started, how it’s changed and grown, and more!
