This episode was recorded during the COVID-19 global pandemic, while many of us are experiencing an abundance of humans being home with us, needing our attention, and using our internet. 😉 In times like this, whether it’s summer break, the holidays, or yes, a global pandemic, it might seem like the best solution is to nix podcast guesting as a visibility opportunities and to let your business take a seat on the back burner for a bit.
