Beyond the Image Podcast

I get to chat with my friend, Chris Goodman, the coach who helps other business owners unpack what it is that we are stuck with in order to move forward more effectively in our business. Chris and I met several years ago at a mastermind session. Every time we had a breakout session, I tended to gravitate towards whatever Chris was saying because it had so much weight and power that I could implement in my own business.

It’s the week of FITposium! Our 7th annual conference. We started back in 2015 to a group of 50 people crammed into a small conference room in a Holiday Inn Express and it has grown so exponentially that over the last 7 years we have had 1500 graduates all setting out to build a better brand and profit from it. This year, we have completely re-formatted it and the focus this year is how to earn and leverage the power of getting published. We are just a few days out from FITposium 2021.

Beyond the Image Podcast

In this episode,. I’m talking about why pitching is so damn scary! Why is trying to get in front of a magazine editor so terrifying, so paralyzing that we can think of a million other things we would rather do as opposed to clicking send on that email or picking up the phone to make that phone call, or walking across the room to shake that hand and introduce ourselves.

Joining me in this conversation is Amy Thompson, she’s the vice president and general manager of IDEA Health & Fitness Association.
