Networking Outside of Podcasting Groups to Find Your Ideal Clients

If you're frustrated and overwhelmed because you haven't been able to get new clients for your podcast editing business, you're not alone.

Podcast editors often work very hard to find clients, go to industry events, and promote their services on social media. However, they often don't see many positive outcomes from these efforts. Instead of the steady stream of new clients they were hoping for, they may be experiencing a stagnant client list and limited growth opportunities.

That's where Steve Stewart's story comes in...

Steve had been building a financial coaching business for years and started a podcast to support it. His expertise and passion for podcasting led him to a community of professionals who were eager to learn from his success. But as Steve's reputation grew and his influence expanded, an opportunity arose that would push his skills to new heights.
