275 My First Keynote Speech – My Address To The Catholic New Media Conference 2012

The Cliff Ravenscraft Show | Take Your Message, Your Business and Your Life To The Next Level show

Summary: Over the past few months, I have been talking about the fact that I would be speaking at the Catholic New Media Conference in Arlington, Texas. I'm excited to share the audio recording of the talk that I gave in this episode of Podcast Answer Man. This was the first time I'd ever given a Keynote Address that sets the tone for an entire conference. To make things just a little more interesting, this was a Catholic conference and I am not Catholic. While my talk is extremely faith based, I do believe that there is a great deal of value in the message of creating content around your greatest passions without ulterior motives or agendas. While I was in Texas, I met up with many friends from the gspn.tv & Podcast Answer Man community who live in Texas. I had an amazing time and I made sure to capture some of the best moments with my new camera. You can see these photos on my Facebook account under the CNMC-2012 photo album that I created.   Podcasting A to Z - Register Today!

The world needs great leaders! I believe that podcasters who take their leadership position seriously can make a positive difference in the lives of others. The world needs you and your message! They need you to be a leader! Many people ask me how to grow the audience of their podcast. I believe that one of the best things you can do is to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! To take yourself seriously! To consider yourself to be a professional! Are you willing to invest in your future success? Are you willing to be the greatest leader you can be?
