Have you ever wanted to launch a podcast but don’t know where to start? Are you wondering how you can create content and become an influencer in your field? Building an audience and a presence online can feel difficult and overwhelming, but once you know where to start, you have the power to really get your message out there and influence people. This week’s guest joins me to share his tips and advice for anyone looking to build authority and a presence online.

Josh Elledge is a US Navy Veteran, podcast master, and entrepreneur who founded Up My Influence to help people build audiences and grow their authority and influence online. He has built multiple 7-figure companies with zero paid advertising and he joins me this week to teach you the number 1 thing that holds doctors back from starting a podcast, share why you need to do the opposite of what marketers do if you want to build a connection with your audience, and what you can do to go from zero to influencer in 30 days. If you are wondering where to start in becoming an influencer, you are going to learn a ton today.

“Your clients are numb from being marketed to. They have never been more on guard from being sold at, so you’re going to need to do the opposite of what marketers do.”
