I recently held a discovery call with potential guests for the podcast. The goal was to introduce myself, discuss the podcast format and get to know them and what they could bring to future episodes.

Jennifer Tamborski

Jennifer is a marketing consultant who works with coaches and consultants to help them build and scale their businesses. As someone who struggles with digital marketing, I think she could provide great tips and strategies to help others improve in this area.

Jessper Maquindang

Jesper works in the areas of leadership and company culture. He helps leaders build stronger teams through activities, assessments and coaching. His background in growth would make for an insightful discussion.

Marcus Higgs

Marcus is a communication coach for parents of preteens. As the parent of children in that age group, I think he could offer practical advice to help maintain relationships during this challenging time of identity development.

Dylan Evans

Dylan demystifies the confusing world of cybersecurity and internet crime. As cyber threats are increasingly common, his educational perspective would help listeners protect themselves online.

Sabine Schoepke

Sabine is an author and coach who guides others through midlife transitions. Her experience as a serial entrepreneur and digital nomad would provide an inspiring discussion.
