Episode 103: Get Seen, Get Heard, and Get Known with Chris Howell, Award-Winning Journalist

If you’re looking for a feel-good success story, then you’ll love my talk with Chris Howell of Chris Howell Communications, aka The Golden Voice.

After looking at his résumé — entrepreneur, award-winning journalist, and organization founder, formerly a district manager of a multibillion-dollar company — you might be surprised to learn that Chris never finished high school, dropping out at 9th grade after getting married at 14, then becoming a father at 16.

Now that’s a compelling story!

And this episode is all about sharing your story by being featured on the news or authoring a book, hosting a podcast or being a guest, or through owning a business (or simply working in one) that reflects and supports your Christian values.

Listen in to hear about: the not-so-secret door to a speaking or singing career; 2 ways to distribute your book before investing in print versions; a massive untapped market for self-improvement and community programs; how your story will help others (and how to get it featured in the news); plus 1 good reason to start a podcast, 3 great reasons not to, and what you can do instead … and more!

"We all have a story. We all have something we’re passionate about. Even if we’re in business to make a profit, we’re also in business to bring about a change.” – Chris Howell
