It doesn’t seem like it can be done right?
Sharing your podcast in 140 characters or less.
There’s just so much more to say. You are just SO much more than 140 characters.
This is an exercise.
An exercise in getting clear.
An exercise on learning how to easily promote yourself.
An exercise to force you to get rid of the unnecessary and get laser sharp about your work.
Because the clearer you get about your message the more you can expand and grow your podcast.
Got your 140 characters?
Now say your pitch out loud, over and over, until you say it easily and don’t doubt what you are saying.
If you doubt your own words, change the pitch.
You gotta align with your own words.
Think 140 is undoable?
