Can I help a coach find the perfect audience?
In this episode of Blue Monday, I talk with Scott Maderer, an organizational and business planning coach who specifically works with Christian men as his ideal marketing niche group.  Scott was kind enough to have me on his podcast, so it's only natural to return the favor and have him on mine as well.  Here's Scott's bio:   In 2017, Scott and his wife Carrie started Inspired Stewardship as a business to serve Christian men and couples that are struggling to live out their calling.  They work to help align the way you use your time, your talent, and your treasures so that you can identify and live a fully authentic life that allows you to authentically live your calling, serve others, and provide for your family.  As certified Human Behavior Consultants and members of the John Maxwell Team, they focus on helping you understand yourself, understand others, and through that understanding build the Kingdom. Scott and Carrie through Inspired Stewardship are living out their own calling that started with a call to coaching in 2011 and has slowly grown to a full-time business through one on one coaching, speaking, and workshops.     If you have questions or would like help related to #digitalmarketing, marketing in general, or growing a business, get in touch with me at Digital Marketing Solutions: DMS.BLUE.
