I am a single mother of 2 teenagers, teach part-time at a College and run my Facebook Business, Tammy Hudgin - Creating Your Presence. I have grown considerably in the last three years, focusing on building my business, working with small business owners, speaking at a variety of Conferences/networking events, as well as learning from many mentors. The biggest element that I have learned is that I need to focus on selling me and not my business. To teach others to be the best they can be. To embrace everything that the world has to offer us.

Harry Duran

Founder

Heeeellllloooo!

I’m Harry, the Founder of PodFunnel. If you’ve been in the podcasting space for some time, my name might ring a bell. I’m also the host of Podcast Junkies. Aaaaaannndd, I also run a full-service podcast consultancy firm, called FullCast.

I wish I could say I say it all started with a lemonade stand, but it was actually music for me. From the moment we were paid to DJ the High School dance senior year, I knew there might always be a way for me to make a living from my passion. I just didn’t realize how long it would take.

I jumped around colleges for a bit after a memorable time at Syracuse University, and then landed in the corporate world at the ripe age of 22! Let’s just say that lasted for more years (decades) than I thought it would.

In 2012, I was getting antsy, and hearing a lot about mobile apps. I had a developer help me piece an app called Know Your DJ together, and later had a good friend of mine take the code over. Little did I know that, even though the app never took off, I was beginning my first foray into the world of digital marketing.

January of 2014 found me at New Media Expo, trying to understand podcasting so I could interview DJs, to support my app. Call it a ‘pivot’, but I quickly found a whole group of podcasters who were willing to talk to a unknown about podcasting. Super meta.

It’s been 2+ years since I started Podcast Junkies, and I’ve had the chance to interview over 100 amazing podcasters and get introduced to an amazing group of friends.

I know run done-for-you podcast service for thought leaders and find myself in the SaaS space as well.

I’m so happy to call the podcasting community my family and some of the connections I’ve made will last the rest of my life.

I understand the needs and frustrations of podcasters, and my hope is that PodFunnel can help make your life a little bit easier.

I’m here help, let me know what you need!

In gratitude,

My name is Fatema Karim I am the founder of BE-U which stands for Biz Empowered University. In this site I teach entrepreneurs and small businesses how to stand out from the crowd and make their voice known. Also we give back a percentage of our membership to under privileged students in Africa and Bangladesh as part of our "Light the way mission". Prior to starting this venture I was working in the corporate world as a software engineer. But I have left that role this year as I felt it didn't fulfill my need to connect with others directly and making a positive impact in their lives. On a personal note, I love to travel and an avid coffee drinker.

Meet Anke Herrmann. Anke is my guest on Episode 26. She is an entrepreneur and coach and lives in Andalucia Spain where she runs her own studio specialising in making custom flamenco dance costumes. Anke takes both an inspirational and very practical approach to these types of questions. And, while we’re on the topic of uncertainty and obstacles, Anke took her first (and biggest) risk in February 1989. Born and raised in East Germany, she moved across the Iron Curtain to West Germany. At the time, no one had any idea how long the Eastern Bloc would remain closed to the world.

When the Berlin Wall came down later that year, a world of opportunities opened up for her and she took full advantage. She lived in Australia and the UK and has worked in areas as diverse as translations to software development. Throughout her career and life, she seemed to know when and how to make a change. Eventually, she found her way to Granada, Spain where she opened her studio.

We talk about all of this in a fascinating conversation that I am sure you will not only enjoy, but get a number of pearls of wisdom that you can apply in your own life. We discuss:

  • Growing up in East Germany before the fall of the Iron Curtain;
    Moving to West Germany
  • Taking risks and balancing certainty with uncertainty;
  • How and why she decided to move to Spain;
  • The beauty of flamenco;
  • Lessons in entrepreneurship
  • Coaching others (Anke helps self-employed creative women “kick the stress out of their business”)
    Loads more!

Michelle is the founder of The Potty School (www.thepottyschool.com), teaching parents Potty Training and how to practice Elimination Communication (0-18 months) with their Babies + Toddlers + Kids, and is located in Orange County, California.

Michelle enjoys spending her days with her three children (ages 4, 2 1/2, and 6 months), and has successfully either Potty Trained or used Elimination Communication with all three of them. Having first learned about EC while living in Nicaragua 16 years ago, Michelle has since made it her profession to teach “Elimination Communication" (0-18 months) and "Gentle Potty Training” (18+ months) by becoming going through a certification program, by working with a variety of young children as a host mom for a pre-foster care program, by serving families in-person, online and via phone through The Potty School, and most importantly by through teaching her own children.

Michelle doesn’t do her job because she loves poop and pee, but she does it because she loves being able to help parents learn to communicate with their children from a young age and loves to reduce children’s dependence upon diapers. Curtailing diaper use early has saved her clients an average of $50 per month, while simultaneously reducing their eco-footprint—two great reasons to smile!

The Potty School is your go-to when it comes to learning how to mind your child’s “pees” and “poos”!

Dynamic. Enthralling. Captivating.

Unsure. Cautious. Withdrawn.

All of these words can be used to capture yours truly.

Born in the city nicknamed “The Big Easy,” the man whose words you’re reading began his unique journey through life. He was called many things – you could say he has been the jack of all trades. However, for a long period of time, he was the master of none of them. Having no solid direction, Saburi Chuku Cole Johnson set course for a blind soulful life. He only knew one side of his family. Why was that? It is because Cole’s father was a Black Panther Party member. Considering the political tension of the times, it precluded Cole to visit his father’s side of the family. The only family he knew resided on his mother’s side.

Cole’s father is strong, determined and lived life on accentuating his strengths and minimizing his weaknesses. Hos mother is a picture of academic curiosity. Every piece of knowledge there is to gain – his mother dogmatically pursued it. This is true – for the exception of higher learned – where she is a case study of potential unfulfilled.

Life lessons left the New Orleans born, Houston reared boy-turned-man continually searching for himself. He was a square peg attempting to fit into round holes. He tried the military (US Army) with no success. He tried photography with minimal success. He tried ticket scalping (it is legal in Houston to be a ticket broker) to little success. He even attempted undergrad college. You guessed it. It was met with little success, there, as well. The square peg kept getting rammed into situations that didn’t fit him.

Very few things were a good fit for Cole. He found a few square holes. Writing (in many forms) is one of them. Music (voice, piano, producer, composer) is another square hole for Cole. However, even these creative outlets served as a minor relief for feeling at home with life, in general.

As for other life aspects, he met a wonderful woman (after trying marriage and failing in the endeavor – ending in divorce) and more square holes started to appear. Church life (especially being in its choir), friends and his current wife, Michelle, all have served to give grounding to a man whose searched for meaning. Life began to make sense.

Then – there was his undergraduate institution, Trevecca Nazarene University. The proverbial scales fell from Cole’s eyes. His world opened up to reveal clarity to certain mysteries in his life. Purpose was beginning to take share – and once he walked away with a degree, the building blocks to his life was erected.

Today, he host/engineers/produces a podcast called Cole Sportz. He also is extending the brand into a membership club as he writes blogs and makes YouTube videos to strengthen the brand. Along with working at Media General as a multimedia content producer, the entrepreneurial sky is the limit for Cole.

Now – the square peg is fitting into many situations these days quite well.

Rachel is a co-founder and the Director of Travel for Rebel + Connect.
What I Do

I am the Director of Travel at Rebel + Connect. My work with remote team leaders allows them to gain insight about where to travel and what to do once they arrive.

As a leader it’s important to know:

Where your team is willing and able to travel.
What sort of travel experiences and cultural immersion will add to your team’s retreat.
That expanding the worldviews of your team members will enhance teamwork.
That exposure to diverse cultures inspires servant leadership within your organization.
Why I Do It

Being part of the Rebel + Connect leadership team allows me to share the magic of travel, elevate and ignite the passions of each team member, and enhance the harmony of remote team cultures.

Where I Come From

Before joining forces with Charlie and Summer to build Rebel + Connect, I held many different travel and hospitality related roles including: Ambassador for WorldVentures helping with the production and execution of events as large as 20,000 in attendance; Ski Instructor in Beaver Creek, CO with Vail Resorts and Mount Buller in Victoria, AUS; Independent Travel Photographer; Mission Trip Leader for Hug It Forward; Co-Founder of Project K1; and Co-Founder of Art in the City: a Children's Summer Art Experience.

I earned a BS in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, a BA in Fine Art Photography, and am a certified Pranic healer. In 2015, I was named Volunteer of the Year for the Americas by the WorldVentures Foundation. These experiences have taught me that travel is less about fancy resorts and tourist attractions and more about servant leadership and responsible global citizenship.

I was born and raised in Atlanta, but have identified as a nomad for most of my adult life. I was almost 29 years old before I paid rent at the same address for a full year. I have visited Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, France, England, Italy, Netherlands, Vatican City, Canada, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Haiti, Jamaica, Mexico, Cayman Islands, Bonaire, Ghana, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, 34 of the 50 states and, and South America and Antarctica are the only continents I have yet to visit.

I believe in the importance of connecting to the creative spirit of the inner child. I believe in creating and cultivating joy any chance we can. I believe in the fulfillment of the self in order to fill others. When we brighten our own flame within, and all of us come together, we burn as a bigger, warmer, more luminous flame than we ever thought possible.

What I Love

I celebrate my life by connecting with family and friends, nature, speaking my truth, leading with my heart, attending burns and music festivals, exploring the ocean through scuba diving, skiing, snowboarding, horseback riding, and practicing monkey kung fu, yoga, and meditation.
