September Smith

CREATOR &  HOST OF THE BREAK THROUGH WITH MEDIA SUMMIT


Podcast Guesting: Powerful Brand Building

September is a business podcast host, a podcast guesting strategist, and the host of the Break Through with Media summit.  She helps clients leverage podcast guest appearances for marketing and promotion of their business.  But it is just part of the story. 

She is all about the power of podcast guesting and believes that every change-maker and thought-leader – authors, entrepreneurs, coaches or service providers – should combine media and speaking opportunities into their own media campaign that keeps their name coming up in front of the people who need them.

She created this summit to help entrepreneurs, coaches, and business people figure out how to do that. How to bust out of the social media posting grind and break through to more authoritative stages and media where you can build your portfolio of client-convincing media content and credibility. 

Meet Your Host

Hey! I’m September, a business podcast host and a podcast guesting strategist.  I help clients leverage podcast guest appearances for marketing and promotion of their business.  But it is just part of the story. 

As much as I am all about the power of podcast guesting, I believe that every change-maker and thought-leader – authors, entrepreneurs, coaches or service providers – should combine media and speaking opportunities into their own media campaign that keeps their name coming up in front of the people who need them.

I created this summit to help you figure out how to do that. How to bust out of the social media posting grind and break through to more authoritative stages and media where you can build your portfolio of client-convincing media content and credibility.
