The Launch Yourself podcast, hosted by Melissa Anzman, is the place for people to learn how to launch their own career, business, or brand – elevating their presence and maximizing their potential. These people all have one thing in common – they decided that there was more possible out of life, and took a chance on fulfilling that possibility. In each episode, our guest focuses on one specific launch so they can share strategic and tactical advice so you can take action on various launches including ebooks, websites, career shifts and promotions, online businesses, blogs, training courses, podcasts, and more. Interviews include Pamela Slim, Jenny Blake, and Paul Angone. Listen in and join the conversation at LaunchYourself.co.
