The Flow State of Mind Podcast

Apr 10, 2020

We are beyond excited to bring you today's guest, John Romaniello - writing mentor, business coach, and founder of Wellspring Media. We (Jordan) have been a huge fan and mild stalker of John's for a good amount of time now and while we will have John back to talk all about writing and storytelling, we know you'll enjoy the hell out of this episode.

We wanted to have John talk about discourse today and how to argue, persuade, and influence at a higher level. Everyone can benefit from improving in this area but online coaches especially. You want more people to follow you? Opted into your email list? Say yes to being your client? You need to know how to influence and persuade (ethically) and that's exactly what you will learn in today's episode.
