More Episodes
This is one of the last episodes on the show soon to be formerly known as "Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do".  As of July 1, 2020 the podcast is rebranding to "Making Waves at C-Level".  (that date is probably approximate, as there will be delays in the different podcast platforms picking up the new title and logo.  A podcast rebrand is not an easy thing, but Thom is thrilled to be making this pivot. 
 
For almost 6 years Thom Singer has hosted the CTED podcast and has had over 500 interviews with amazing entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, business leaders, and others.  And that will not change with this podcast rebrand.  But the focus of Thom's life and career has changed to larger organizations and C-Level executives. 
 
Making Waves at C-Level will still be a mostly interview based show.  Thom has enjoyed having indepth conversations with people who are leading, and that will become even more profound in the future.
 
In June Thom Singer joined an the executive recruiting firm of Stanton Chase, so in addition to his work as a speaker / trainer, he is now helping companies make strategic hires for VPs, Directors, and in the C-Suite.  To keep all areas of his life and career congruent, some tweaks to the show were necessary.
 
Plus, six years and over 570 episodes is huge for any podcast.  Too many shows (most shows) do not make it to 20 episodes, much less over 500.  But the "Cool Kids Table" can only last so long, and to keep things fresh, Thom felt this was the right time to tackle this podcast rebrand and get fresh excitement into this podcast.  He loves doing the show and it has directly impacted the bottom line of his business.
 
A big "thank you" to all those who have come along on the ride so far, and welcome to all the new people who will join the "Making Waves Community" going forward. 
 
To be successful, business leaders need to shake things up - to "Make Waves".  We cannot keep growing if the water is stagnate. Ripples and waves are the only way to grow, and that is where this podcast  rebrand will focus.
 
Thom is looking for your help.  How can we get the word out about the new name and who are the guests you want to hear from?
