    Turning Passion into Profit in Business and Podcasting w/Roy Coughlan

    Turning Passion into Profit in Business and Podcasting w/Roy Coughlan

    Did you wash cars or delivered newspapers as a kid, while dreaming of becoming an entrepreneur?

    Roy Coughlan certainly did, and his journey from those humble beginnings to creating over 17 companies across five continents is a testament to the sheer force of entrepreneurial spirit.

    Listen closely as Roy and I explore the complexities of tax optimization, the intricacies of accountancy, and the often misunderstood passion that fuels business ventures. His narrative sheds light on the essential personal investment in your pursuit and reminds us that the drive to innovate and expand is a unique force that sets certain entrepreneurs apart.

    Adding some of my own experience into the mix, I talked about my metamorphosis of podcasting from a hobby to a vital business strategy. The balancing act between crafting engaging content and managing financial sustainability can be a tricky walk that many content creators are familiar with.

    Through his Toastmasters heritage, Roy evolved into a podcast coach, monetizing the very skills that once were just a passion. So if you are holding a microphone waiting to amplify your message, listen as Roy shares his wisdom on branding, valuing one's craft, and the profound satisfaction of influencing change, one listener at a time.

    Don't miss this episode as we navigate these revelations, all while championing the idea that success isn't always in the numbers—it's in the impact we make.
