Podcasting 101

WOW... this podcasting thing was super challenging to get through at first, but then after searching through YouTube - Podcasting and GOOGLE - I finally have my first two up and I'm going to be releasing 2 more podcasts tomorrow. 

This is so fun and the people I'm interviewing are rather amazing. Who wouldn't want to listen to them and more importantly learn from them. Their stories, their inspiration...

Check out my Pinterest board The Retail Couch for all things I find helpful in creating my podcast as well as the guests that will be in upcoming shows. 

You can also find me on Twitter @TheRetailCouch sharing retail funnies, lots of quotes and retail related info that I find interesting.

I hope you'll all join me each Sunday on the couch. Rate and review me on iTunes and if you hear something you like, I hope you'll share it with your friends.

Thanks for your support!

This journey of finding outlets while growing one of the hottest brands in America is fun. Finding time to stay on track. be a mom, a wife and to step outside of my box to create another niche in what is still a prominent industry is totally awesome!

The Retail Couch is going to be the go to place to hear about brands, learn from key industry folks from showroom principals to manufacturers and tradeshow employees. If you or you know someone trying to break in to gift, spa, outdoor, luggage/travel and home -- they'll want to listen weekly.

Thanks for sticking with me and I can't wait to share more of what's to come!!
