How to Start Your Own Podcast: Interview with Melvin Varghese - PPP: 055

June 11, 2017

If you really love listening to podcasts, you really learn from them, and you are interested in this type of media, this is the episode for you. Today I'm talking to Melvin Varghese who will be walking you through the steps of starting your podcast, how to build your audience, and how to use it to grow your business. The whole reason I started this podcast was to find ways to help you stop trading your dollars for patients in front of you because if they're not there, you're not making any money.

One thing that Melvin talks about is how important it is to have your hand in multiple cookie jars and trying to find more ways to leverage income in your business, opposed to just trading time for service and podcasting is one of the phenomenal ways to do that.


This week the sponsor is my 7 Day Detox Program. It's a complete done for you program that walks you through everything you need to do to create either an in-office or an online program, depending on where you are and what you do. This program comes with all of the emails, scripts, protocols, and everything I do. I actually do this program with almost every single new patient and out of everything I do in my office, I get the most repeat business with my 7 Day Detox.
