  • Joe,
    I have really enjoyed reading your blogs and listening to your podcasts. I have learned a lot from them. I enjoyed Mari’s interview; too bad about the technical problems at the end. I have the book she co-wrote, Facing Heart Break. It is excellent! I plan to get her book for clinicians as soon as I can save the shekels to purchase it. I am trying (desperately) to increase my business, but I am finding that, to some extent, you really do have to have some money to make money. So I am endeavoring to use every little tweak and tidbit I find on your site to move that process along (at its glacial pace). I have great hopes! Thanks for all your energy and effort. Lura

    Umm…why wouldn’t you edit this podcast? It was painful to listen to the cutting in and out and the long silences and back and forth towards the end as you’re trying to hear each other. It really makes you look like an amatuer. I think you’ve damaged your brand with this episode. Seriously!

    • I don’t edit them because I think it makes me more authentic. I figure that if folks want something overly polished, there are others doing that. It’s just not me to over produce something. Also, I think that streamlining my time makes me more money and gives me more time with my family. I don’t mind if it damages my brand.
