There’s a mystery to marketing. Where colors don’t match, lines don’t cross, and dots don’t connect. Where work cannot be scored. Where data can’t always be measured. The Metaphorically Speaking podcast seeks to enter this abstruse space of marketing that can’t be fully understood. It’s not a show about tips or tricks or about offering up one authoritative solution. It’s about exploring the elements that make up the world of marketing and offering ways to consider their application. Each season, we’ll discuss practical marketing themes, share personal experiences, and present a colorful palette of solutions. It’s our hope that you walk away with more than a list of tactics for your small business. But rather, that we all come together to meet new ideas, moments, and people with open minds. Ultimately, we hope that Metaphorically Speaking leaves us all inspired to be better people in the worlds we inhabit.

    Moving With Fear

    Moving With Fear

    Every day, business owners and employers face very real fears related to leading a team, running a company, and making a profit. In the final episode of Season 2, we step into the shoes of a business leader and address fear in the workplace — even asking one such entrepreneur, Mitch Causey, to share the very real fears he faces daily. To conclude, we issue a challenge: rather than be paralyzed by fear, learn to move with it — letting its momentum make way to success.

    The Value of Fear

    The Value of Fear

    There are two sides to every coin — a gray to every black and white. In this episode, we challenge ourselves to think differently about fear, seeing it as something to be embraced, rather than overcome. As a vitamin instead of a virus. We pick apart the lie of “fearlessness,” recognizing that by choosing courage, our eyes can be opened to seeing the good that fear gives back.

    Are you a runner? A fighter? A thinker? A feeler? In this episode, we take a look at how people respond to fear, accounting for both healthy and unhealthy reactions and specifically exploring how Joe and his wife, Lindsay Dudeck, have used the Enneagram model to better understand the different ways they respond to fear. Also, in an effort to respect fear’s place in our lives, we encourage meaningful, healthy disciplines that inspire healing, self-awareness, and empowerment.

Love the podcast

Listening to husband and wife power team Joe and Lindsay talk about their relationship to fear. How they each deal with it, move through it was very encouraging. I want more!!! They need an enneagram podcast, as they are intelligent well spoken and most importantly kind individuals who I enjoy listening to!!

Just Right

This podcast from Key Hole Marketing and Joe is the “just right” amount of brainwork that I look for in a podcast. It’s interesting and engaging and still allows for background tasks (driving, cleaning, copy and pasting spreadsheets, etc.

I also really love the different sources and resources recommended in Season 2. I appreciate podcasts that recommend other podcasts, books, or articles and they work it in organically and around the topics they cover.

I would highly recommend this podcast for anyone in business, marketing, or who works remotely!
