Business Coach Elizabeth Tollis was recently a guest on my Good Eye Podcast. I was also a guest on hers few months ago. Just click the image below to hear our conversation or listen directly from her website .
This episode of the Good Eye Podcast is a joint episode with the Synapse Hubcast. It features Jay speaking with representatives for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Renee Fairchild of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude, and John Tyndall of the St. Jude Young Professionals of Richmond which unites with local leaders of tomorrow to help advance cures for pediatric cancer while providing young professionals an avenue to grow in their philanthropy and create the building blocks of a lifelong and diverse professional network.
The conversation revolves around St. Jude’s mission to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment, and also around the first St. Jude Cycle Challenge hosted by the Young Professionals of Richmond in which Jay is participating.
PodcastSpeaks is almost here. I can’t wait for this exciting 2-day event with the amazing Jane M Powers.
I met Jane last year at a Synapse meeting. Our meeting was one of the serendipitous benefits to a new business culture full of online Zoom video meetings. I know, I felt Zoom fatigue as much as anyone. But after it had settled in, I started to wonder how we’d go back to the old normal. I was meeting people from all over the world every week!
When Jane and I got together we found we not only had a lot of interests in common (the outdoors, mountain biking, an insatiable desire to constantly learn, low tolerance for b.s.), but that we possessed skill sets that complimented each other. She was great a turning skills into money by jumping all-in and getting to the heart of people’s passions, and I was good at NONE of that. Well, truth be told, my background in audio and recording, radio, creative services in the ad world, and the aforementioned insatiable desire to constantly learn fueled my interest in podcasts and podcasting. I truly believe that podcasts are one of the greatest messaging, branding, self-discovery and lead generation tools available to businesses and non-profits. And Jane agreed. So we came together to offer PODCAST SPEAKS.
PodcastSpeaks is an online, virtual event being held April 29 and 30 to teach businesses how they can use podcasts to speak (literally!) directly to customers, potential customers, contemporaries, collaborators, sponsors and networkers.
If you’re a small business person, entrepreneur or anyone who wants to control the narrative surrounding their business, ask yourself a few questions:
Do you have a story, mission, movement, or message?
Are you passionate about growing a profitable business?
Would you like to effectively engage and connect with audiences?
Do you want to easily create lasting content?
Do you want to confidently convert 5 or 6-figures from every stage?
Do you want to successfully generate a stream of leads?
The answers are obvious. Click here to make a fully refundable deposit to hold your space and attend this free event.

In this conversation, Jay Smack speaks with Jane M Powers about their Podcast Speaks event on April 29 and 30. They discuss Jane M Powers’ CORE Sales Program involving personality types and methods of communication, the need for what Jane calls your INTROmercial, the importance of listening, interview techniques, podcasting as a lead generation tool, podcasting as a means of deep-diving into what your business’ message and mission is in order to communicate that to customers, partners and collaborators, podcasting as a content generator, podcast as a super-powered SEO tool, what many podcasts for business are missing, deciding what subjects to address in podcasts, and much more. It’s a positive, energetic conversation that just scratches the surface of the potential that podcasts hold as a tool for business, especially small business and entrepreneurs.
