021 – Dan Miller – Speaker, author & coach
Chatting with Dan Miller was a great experience for me. It’s helped me get in touch with what’s going on in my head and attempting to further clarify what Expert Empire is about. It still isn’t completely clear, but it helped give myself permission to take some time to clearly define the show, my life and everything else I can influence.

018 – Ed May – Puppeteering expert
What can I say? I had no clue who Ed May was going in to our conversation other than knowing that we got connected on the 48 Days community when I was asking for experts to talk to. Well that meant I had to do some digging to ensure that it was a fun episode. What I didn’t expect to find was that being a professional puppeteer, like Ed is, could be so fun. I honestly felt like a little kid on Christmas opening the best gift in the world. Ed has been a puppeteer for many years and in fact has recently launched Runaway Puppet Theater – his own theatre company. We talk about the approach he’s taking to grow his audience and reach within the education system. And as any puppeteer will tell you, most of the time you’re on contract so you’re constantly marketing your skills. That makes perfect sense then that I managed to find Ed’s demo reel online. The 0:26 mark is a particularly favorite part of the reel.

015 – Daniel J. Lewis – Podcasting expert
Daniel J. Lewis is the guy behind noodle.mx – a podcast network dedicated to shows that make you think, laugh and succeed. In fact we had Erik J. Fisher of Beyond the To-Do List on Expert Empire and he’s a member of the network. And before you ask, not all contributors need the middle initial “J” to be a part. Daniel talks about how the network was created in part as an accident, but how it has provided such great leverage to him and his network of shows to rapidly grow an audience. So why not just start your own podcast network then? Well, he actually gets into reasons why you may not want to actually consider starting your own and more so why it may be beneficial to join one. His requirements are pretty strict with a bit of lenience on joining his network, but there are lots of others you could consider. It’s really about ensuring it’s a win-win-win arrangement for everyone involved. In addition to producing top-rated podcasts, Daniel also does a lot of WordPress work. He’s developed a premium plugin called Subscribe and Follow and regularly develops for the Genesis framework, so naturally we chat a little bit about WordPress too. Experts mentioned Erik J.

If you’ve ever considered Instagram as a waste of time, you need to listen to the conversation I had with Sue B. Zimmerman. She is an Instagram expert and has used the photo service to grow her brick and mortar business exponentially – like over 40% growth! Not only that, but she’s even got a great training course available that she’s re-working to give an exclusive deal to members of the Empire. I’ll be sure to update you once it’s available, so make sure you’re getting our emails. During our conversation Sue gives specific examples on how you can create an Instagram image in under one-minute. She also breaks down the process she used to grow her following on Instagram. I’ve toyed with Instagram for a few years but really haven’t focused on using it as a platform to grow my audience. I’m beginning to think that I should possibly start looking at it a little closer. If you’re on Instagram, I’d love to see some of your photos. Post a link to your profile or your favorite photo in the comments below.
