Over the last two weeks, something has been gnawing at me that I want to share today. I got booked on this photo project a couple weeks ago with a couple other photographers. I’m sharing all about that today and what you can learn from it!

Beyond the Image Podcast

It was our 7th annual FITposium conference and there was so much information that we are still working through. Every year, dozens of people walk away with media features in hand. It’s one of the coolest and most celebratory things we do during the conference. We set a goal every year in hopes of increasing this number.

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.

For today’s episode, we are dipping back into our archives. In fact, this is an interview I did back in 2017 with Katelyn Swallow. If that name rings a bell, it’s because she’s been attending FITposium and on our panels for years now; every year since 2017. She is currently the editor of Strong Fitness Magazine in Australia. But, at the time of this interview, she was the editor of Women’s Health and Fitness Magazine.

So much of what we talk about is so important for entrepreneurs to know about leveraging media outlets to grow their brand awareness, visibility, credibility and generate more leads.

PSA! We are doing a cover search right now for the cover of Portfolio Magazine, but only for those who register for FITposium 2021. Register HERE.
