Yes it has been five years since we had Jessica Rhodes from Interview connections on the podcast. Since then Jessica has grown the business to a six and now 7 figure business. How did she do it? Small steps and "grind and grit". In this episode I reconnect with Jessica , 5 years in between episodes and ask her about some of the business moves she has made like getting a physical office space, partnering with Margy Feldhuhn, and working with female business coaches like Kelly Roach and Ali Brown. Jessica also notes there's a difference between scaling to 7 figures as opposed to 8; it's a different set of strategies to get to 8.
There was so much I didn't know about building a company in the podcast space when I first started back in 2016, but simply following Jessica and paying attention to how she operates, I learned a lot. There are about 7 people who I follow like that. It's not unlike listening to your favourite radio performer to hear their show every day - and learn how they connect.
If you are in radio and wondering why you should listen to the show:
(1) Because Jessica got to the top by not worrying about the copy cat competition.
(2) Because you don't have a podcast and should consider guesting on podcasts if you aren't going to podcast.
(3) Even if you have a podcast, learning to be a guest will help you become a better interviewer.
Thanks also to the people who make this show possible every week including:
