Today I’m delighted to share my blog interview with Michelle Aubin – Podcast Genius
Please introduce yourself and tell us a little about your business.
Hi Wendy. Thank you for inviting me to share my message with your
(you’re so welcome Michelle)
With my program Podcast Genius, I’m able to help Creative Entrepreneurs,
Healers, and Coaches to find and book podcast interviews so they can
share their core message with their ideal clients, grow their business,
and help more people.
In this program they also develop interview skills so they can enjoy the
I’ve heard many Creative Entrepreneurs who are new to doing podcast
interviews say that they don’t always know how to talk about their gifts
and talents with others, and that they are worried about not feeling
prepared for questions that might come up during interviews.
My system guides them step by step through a process that gives them
confidence, so that they find the words they need to share their core,
authentic message, and they feel prepared for the actual interview.
They find that it can actually be very enjoyable–this is where
marketing can really be fun, and a great way to connect with prospects
on a deep level!
How long have you been in business and what motivated you to start
your own business?
I’ve been in business online for about 18 months. Previously, I had been
a trainer for non-profits, and I also got certified as a Reiki healer,
Hypnotist, and Coach. Something in life was missing, but I did not know
what it was– and then I had a long illness with a long recovery.
Part of my healing included changing EVERYTHING in my life, including
how I make decisions. Now, every decision I make is based on how it
feels from the inside out, without ‘shoulds’. Based on this new way of
deciding everything, I realized I want to build a business that is
centered around total, radical, self care and self love.
In order to manifest that self love and honor everything that I am, I
also need to share the TRUTH about who I am. I am someone who has a deep
desire to assist in exponentially creating a high vibration reality,
here and now, by supporting the Healers, Coaches, Creatives, and
Visionaries find ways to share THEIR truth, because this will change the
Currently, there is no job title for that, so I get to create it every
day in my business! It’s awesome.
What’s your favourite thing about your business?
Getting to express the core of who I am as part of my ‘workday’, but it
doesn’t feel like work.
Getting to collaborate and network with amazing colleagues and clients.
Creating fun projects that are win/win.
Discovering that business is actually very creative.
Learning new things every single day.
Give us an example of an average day in your business.
-Connecting more and more with fellow coaches and creating wonderful
collaborations with them.
-Learning about Video Podcasting formats, and am creating a You Tube
channel in 2016.
-Speaking with clients and potential clients on a regular basis, on
Facebook quite a lot, and on Skype.
Also, I’ve invested in a structured year-long coaching program where I
am learning so much, as well as a mastermind group, which has been
What are your top 3 business tips?
1. You don’t know what you don’t know–we can DIY our business up to a
point, but getting good support and advice changes everything, and saves
you time, money, and frustration.
2. Start doing ‘it’ before you feel ready, whatever ‘it’ is–start
writing the book, start pitching for podcast interviews, start reaching
out to collaborate with people, etc. Don’t wait for your website/FB
page/book/etc. to be ‘perfect’ first! There is no ‘perfect’ anyway, and
that word is just a fear-based delay tactic.
3. The world needs to hear your message. Your future clients need to
hear your message. You have a unique way of saying what you do, don’t
apologize for that. That is where your power exists. You can revise your
message as you go, it does not have to be ‘perfect’. Come out of hiding,
share who you are, add to the conversation… be YOU.
