You asked for it, and now you got it. It’s official, this week I’m launching The #Smallbizchat Podcast. What is a podcast, you say? Podcasts are essentially radio interviews, and all of the programming is free online. This podcast will be a way for you to learn even more about what I believe it takes to be successful in business.
For over 10 years, I’ve interviewed hundreds of guest experts on Twitter about the latest issues, challenges, and opportunities facing today’s small businesses. And then the next day we publish the interviews on this blog. Nothing is changing. We’re still doing #Smallbizchat on Twitter every Wednesday 8-9pm ET. And once a month we’ll continue doing #Smallbizchat LIVE, a monthly video broadcast featuring three guest experts streaming live to my SmallBizLady Facebook Page, Twitter (via Periscope) and on YouTube.
Over the last few years, I lost count of how many people asked me if I had a podcast. So finally, I heard you!! The #SmallBizChat Podcast starts this Wednesday, September 11, 2019. Look for interviews that are 20-40 minutes in length. I’ll be going deeper with our guest experts and letting you hear business advice directly from them in the style of a Masterclass on the weekly podcast. Some of my first guests include Customer Experience Expert Shep Hyken, Tech Life Expert Stephanie Humphries, Business Growth Expert Garrett White, Trade Show Sales Expert Dianna Geairn, Business Expert Barry Moltz, and Seasoned Business Journalist Alfred Edmond, Jr.
Once a month, I’ll do a solo podcast that we’re calling SmallBizLady Diaries, where I’ll share personal stories and advice on things that I learned the hard way in my business. I’ll also share thoughts on relevant issues affecting business owners, and I’ll answer some of your Ask SmallBizLady questions. Some of the first topics I’ll touch on include How I Became #SmallBizLady, Failing Doesn’t Mean Failure, How to Really be a BOSS, Don’t Be The Momma, and When You Hate Your Business.
I like writing articles and books about business best practices, so talking to you directly through the #SmallBizChat Podcast weekly is like developing new muscles for me. I feel like I’ve been in a gym all summer working hard to build Michelle Obama arms. My team and I have been going through all kinds of social profiles, blogs and books to find amazing guest experts, so we can bring them to you. I promise this: I’m going to keep it 100 on the show. I’ll always share from my heart and always close with action steps to help you live your dream life as an entrepreneur.
For the next 30 days starting today, you’ll have a chance to win amazing prizes if you subscribe to the podcast. All you need to do is take a screenshot after you subscribed to The Smallbizchat Podcast and tag @SmallBizLady on Twitter or Instagram (you can subscribe by clicking here and registering for podcast notifications).

The #SmallBizChat Podcast is dedicated to helping you live your best life as a small business owner. The mission is to end small business failure. If you’ve been a fan of #SmallBizChat for years—this is just for you. I can’t wait to get your feedback!
