Episode 93: YouTube and Speakers, Should You?

Jun 13, 2022

As a speaker, you may be wondering, “Do I need a YouTube channel?” I'll be honest; I've been pondering the same question myself. If you've felt curious about starting your own channel, keep listening!
 
Want to chat outside the podcast? Yes? Great! Then it's time to get on the email list by going to takethestagepodcast.com, scrolling to the bottom, and signing up.
