Episode 149 – Abby Kohut – Job Searches / audio

job search

Abby Kohut (@Absolutely_Abby on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss job searches. It seems everyone is always looking for a job and with the downturn a few years back, more people were unexpectedly looking for a job. That’s when Abby Kohut (Absolutely Abby to her fans) started a crusade to get 1 million people hired. But, you can’t get hired until you find another job. Being gainfully employed full time for the past 12 years, Craig is completely out of the loop in the job search department. Times have changed and some issues that weren’t a reality when he last looked for work are coming to the forefront. Abby and Craig discuss where to look for a job, why networking is the most important part of your job search, interview techniques and how social media can really mess things up for you (even though they say it shouldn’t). They also discuss the hidden job market, if potential employers prefer you to already have a job and if they prefer whether you’ve had that job for awhile or not!

Episode 148 – Thom Singer – Entrepreneurs / audio

Entrepreneurs

Thom Singer (@thomsinger on Twitter) returns to talk about his new podcast Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do with host Craig Price. It seems podcasting guests are few and far between so when Craig heard Thom was starting up a new podcast dealing with entrepreneurs, he knew he needed to get Thom back on the show. The two discuss Thom’s show, how podcasting has opened up his network (even though he’s a master at it!) and what he’s learned talking to entrepreneurs. Craig also shares his insights into why Thom’s podcast has rocketed atop the iTunes (a good show is only one reason) and some of the ways Thom could use his podcast along side his Conference Catalyst program. If you’re on the fence about podcasting for your business you have to listen to this episode.

Episode 147 – Reeve Hamilton – 2014 Texas Elections / audio

2014 Texas Elections

Reeve Hamilton (@ReeveHamilton on Twitter) with the Texas Tribune joins host Craig Price to talk about the 2014 Texas elections. When it comes to politics, Craig knows just enough to get himself into trouble, so instead of just relying on himself to figure out what’s happening this mid-term election, he reached out to the host of Texas Tribune Tribcast to help set him straight. Reeve is a reporter for the Tribune and the two discuss the recent Texas Voter ID law controversy and if voter fraud is really a concern, will Texas ever “flip” to a blue state, why the Lt. Governorship is important here in Texas and why so many races are not even close. There’s something for every voter, even if you don’t live in the Lone Star State!

You can hear Reeve host the Texas Tribune Tribcast which features a rotating cast of Tribune reporters, editors and special guests. The TribCast is an informal – and at times amusing – discussion of Texas politics and policy. on Soundcloud or on  iTunes and read his articles at http://TexasTribune.org

Episode 146 – Scott Whitney – Videography / audio

Videography

Scott Whitney joins host Craig Price to discuss this ins and out of videography. When it comes to video of himself, Craig would rather jab dull spoons into his eyes than sit through any part of the process but since his business demands proof of expertise he’s certainly aware of what videography involves. Instead of just rambling about his likes/dislikes, Craig recruited Scott Whitney of Whitney Media Productions to talk about why audio is just as important as any aspect of video, lightening is one of the most overlooked pieces and how to find a good videographer even when you’re on the road or travelling across country.
