Success Stories

The Entrepreneurship Formula

Chris and I connected through podcasting after he helped me launch my podcast, The Entrepreneurship Formula in 2022. He sat with me live to record the trailer and gave me killer constructive feedback that could have taken me 12+ hours on my own, but instead it took an hour or so. As well as podcasting, he's exceptional at web design and brand development too. I can't recommend him enough for both services.

Mental Arsenal

The Podcast Launch Challenge helped me move past the stuckness and launch my podcast, Mental Arsenal.

Chris does an excellent job at cutting down the noise and honing in on the salient parts of launching a podcast. (Psst! He even coaches beyond launching: growth + monetization).

He teaches from experience and freely offers valuable insights. And you really get a sense of how much he loves doing this... which to me is everything!

Predictable Growth

I have been dreaming about launchng my podcast for a whole 2 years and was always overthinking about it. I even think about give up on it.
But since I joined this challenge, everything become so clear in my mind that I have done more than just launching my podcast with bunch of episodes already ready to go live. Beyond that, I got access to an amazing community that support each other and make the journey more fun.

Wherever you are and whatever language you speak, if you truly want to launch your podcast and have everything you need to promote it and monetize it, the Podcast Launch Challenge is defintely the way to go.

I joined the challenge and was so thankful to learn along side a wonderful community of entrepreneurs with the same goal of launching a podcast.

I have successfully launched my podcast, Lessons From The Core and I couldn’t have done it without Chris’s help and the challenge.
