Hosting a podcast is the ultimate educator. You can feel like you're coming away with a PhD just by having a handful of interviews. So, does your podcast improve your personal growth?
Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast.
I’m Ronsley Vaz. Each week I, with the help of a star-studded entrepreneurial guest lineup, explore why you should start a podcast, build an audience, and how to keep them hungry for more.
If you're thinking about starting a podcast or simply looking for a better way to get your message out to your audience, then this is the podcast for you.
Jordan Mendoza is swiftly becoming a podcast pro.
Jordan has over 25 years' experience in sales & marketing and 14 years' experience in the Multi-Family Housing industry. Within this setting, he learned the ultimate lesson; the best asset you have is your personal brand. If people buy into you, they trust you and therefore invest in whatever you're offering.
This methodology works both from a sales perspective and a podcasting standpoint.
In January 2020, Jordan finally plucked up the courage to start his own podcast, Blaze Your Own Trail Podcast. So, as the title suggests, he scours the world interviewing influential people who have blazed their own trail in business and life. These conversations taught him more than any formal education could teach.
Today, Jordan also teaches a six-month leadership program, which is predicated on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Attendees take the assessment. Then, over six months, they enter onto a leadership journey to learn about emotional intelligence, strength-based leadership, conflict, coaching, and feedback, and how to develop a high performing team.
In this episode, I get schooled on the art of creating value. Jordan also talks about content creation and how it took his LinkedIn profile from 7,000 to 60,000 followers in 16 months. We also hear about the interview that sticks in his mind and what it taught him about his personal growth.
