    EP 177 Polly Brown Podcast Guest for the Start Down Podcast

    The StartDown Podcast is all about giving entrepreneurs the tools they need to start and grow their businesses. This week's episode is all about public relations, and Polly Brown is here to dispel some myths about the industry.

    "A lot of people think that PR is all about pay for play," Polly says. "But that's not true at all. In fact, good PR can help your business get in front of the right people without having to spend a penny."

    Polly goes on to explain how PR can help you build relationships with key media outlets, connect with potential customers, and create a positive image for your brand. She also shares some tips for getting started with PR.

    "The most important thing is to have a clear message and a strong story," Polly says. "Make sure you know what makes your business unique and make sure that story is communicated in everything you do."

    EP 176 The connected CEO podcast

    In this week's podcast, we discuss why it's important to have a proactive business model to anticipate challenges and get ahead of potential problems.
    Whether a recession is coming or not is debatable, but the real question is, are we prepared for it?

    If yes, what do you think is the best way to get through this recession? If not, what are you doing to help make it better?

    When a recession falls upon the new world, it will not only be a disaster for all the businesses but it will be worse for those who have no idea that it's coming in the first place. Prepare for it while there's still time.

    EP 175 Liam Martin's talk about the pros and pros of working from home

    EP 175 Liam Martin's talk about the pros and pros of working from home

    Stop punishing your company! 

    When do you think your business will be running at its full potential? 

    When you start getting more and more clients or when your employees work at their full potential and their abilities at their peak? 

    It wouldn’t make sense to get more work if your people can’t fulfill it. As an entrepreneur, you know what’s working and what’s not. Take control and do what will move your company and its people forward. 

    This week on The Start Down Podcast we talk about these topics with Liam Martin. He recently released a book on working from home and workplace culture.
