Find Partners You Can Be Proud of
I started my business in 2013 when I had my first child because I wanted to be a stay at home mom. My dad, Jim Palmer is a serial entrepreneur and as a business coach (and a proud dad!) he was thrilled to help me start my entrepreneurial journey. My dad was my first client and I soon became a client of his when I joined his Dream Business Mastermind. We weren’t business partners technically, but we were proud of one another.
Having pride in the people you hire, the people who hire you and the people you become actual partners with is a key factor in succeeding and actually enjoying your business.
Pride: a feeling of deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.
The company I founded in 2013, Interview Connections is the leading booking agency for podcasters and guest experts. We were the first agency of it’s kind and continue to be the leader with a team of 5 in house employees and 2 owners (Margy Feldhuhn and myself, Jessica Rhodes) Having pride in the clients we serve has been a huge factor in our growth and success as a booking agency.
We often joke that we ‘stage mom’ our clients because when we see them speak or perform their podcast live, like Jen Briney did at Podfest 2018, we are right there in the front row taking pictures, videos and telling everyone about them!
We joke, because it’s a funny comparison to Mean Girls, but it’s true! When you are proud of your partners, meaning anyone you’re working with – clients, employees, vendors, contractors, and co-owners, you exude confidence and success! Your energy attracts people who want to work with you.
How do you find partners you can be proud of? It’s simple: Have clear values and operate your business with integrity. Then find partners who shares your values and operate with integrity!
Here at Interview Connections, Margy, myself and our team value commitment, authenticity, creativity, humor, and compassion.
When we have clients who share these values and operate with integrity, we all succeed!
If you share our values, we would love to stage mom you to success! Apply now to be a client of Interview Connections and we’ll set up a call to chat!
