Have a Smokin’ Hot Second Half with Marianne Cherico
In this episode of The Baby Boomer Entrepreneur Podcast I interview coach Marianne Cherico. She’s a dynamic woman with a passion for living. We discuss baby boomer women and the desire many of us have to do something different in the second half of our lives – something more meaningful to us. We both discussed the moment when we realized life isn’t going to last forever so we’d better start making the most of what time we have left.
Marianne also talked about her free 7 Day Challenge starting May 12th. The idea is to challenge women to create a life filled with joy, passion and purpose. Personally, I like the idea of the “bad ass” challenge, although the breaking rules day will also be good for me.

While we’re discussing podcasts, I will be launching the official iTunes, Stitcher and RSS version of the podcast soon. If you have any topics you’d like to see covered or people you think I should interview, please leave a comment below.
If you read my previous blog post, you know I’ve been participating in Gary Ryan Blair’s 100 Day Challenge and getting amazing results. That’s why I was so excited when he agreed to let me interview him for the blog.
The interview is only about 28.5 minutes but Gary shared some really valuable stuff. In fact, from about the 9:50 mark to about 12:15 Gary said something that blew my mind and caused a major paradigm shift in my thinking.
He said you can change your life. It requires a short period of time, a focused mindset and executing like you never have before.
Then he talked about thinking about how he can take his annual income and turn it into his monthly income.
Wow. I realized I’ve been thinking too small and that has completely changed! I went from thinking I might be able to triple my income from last year but now I’m thinking 10 times.
The thing is, it’s not pie-in-the-sky dreaming. In the short time it’s been since I interviewed Gary, I’ve come up with several pieces of the plan to get me there.
And I am so energized, excited and happy about how much work it’s going to take because I’m going to be getting massive results.
What is a podcast you ask? It is simply an internet radio show. You can find them on iTunes, Blog Talk Radio or Stitcher to name a few.
In a busy world, podcasts are a great way to consume information or entertainment. I have several podcasts that I subscribe to on my phone and on my MP3 player (no, it’s not an iPod). I can listen at the gym, in the car or doing dishes. This way I can learn more than I can from reading because I can multitask.
I’m not alone in this. That’s one of the reasons why I think podcasting is an important marketing strategy for 2014. In fact, you can expect The Baby Boomer Entrepreneur podcast to appear early in the new year.
To aid me … I mean you … in learning how to podcast I have asked Anna Farmery to join me in a Google Plus Hangout on Air today at 12:30 eastern to talk about podcasting. Anna is a veteran podcaster and her Engaging Brand podcast is one of the ones I subscribe to. I’m going to ask Anna about the hows and whys of podcasting for business.
Please join us here to watch live or to watch the replay.
Here are some of the podcasts I listen to on a regular basis:
Ivan Misner’s BNI Podcast. As a member of BNI I find his training essential. But even if you’re not a BNI member you’ll find his networking tips valuable.
Welcome to Episode 1 of The Baby Boomer Entrepreneur Podcast. In this new project of mine, I will be interviewing small business owners about how and why they run their businesses. My hope is that by hearing about what others are doing with their businesses, you’ll be inspired to try new things and motivated to reach new heights in your own business.
In this episode I am speaking with Jeffrey Apton. Like many of the interesting business people I know but have never met in person, Jeff and I met on LinkedIn. He has launched a business in an industry I had never heard of: dental tourism. When he told me what he was doing, I knew he was the perfect choice for the launch of the new podcast.
During our conversation, Jeff shared how he stumbled upon the idea, why he got started and what he needed to do to get this business up and running. And of course, I asked him about how he markets the business.
I enjoyed talking with Jeff and I think you’ll enjoy listening to our conversation. And if you’re like me, you’ll probably think of at least three names of people who need his services. If you do, send them to Jeff’s website, PanAmDentalTours.com.
