My Pivotal Business Moment


When my mentor Troy Dean reached out a little over a year ago about a cool twist on an idea for one of his podcasts, I was thrilled. I couldn’t believe I was to have the chance to talk to the amazing Seth Godin and get advice for my business. Now, what transpired was something I never could have imagined – a total business transformation.

Two podcasts and one blog post later, “listen” through my journey below. If you are a business owner, entrepreneur or someone looking to start out on their own, I don’t think you will be disappointed.

The kickoff (earth-shattering) first podcast:

Episode 91 Seth Godin and Kristina Romero

The follow-up:

Episode 94 Kristina Romero Follow Up

My conclusion:

The Wisdom of Seth Godin (blog post)


And today? My business look completely different from that initial interview on Memorial Day of 2015. Today, I can comfortable call myself an entrepreneur, and firmly say my business is in a place that makes money while I sleep. I’m so thankful for Mr. Godin for calling me out. I’ll forever reference that exchange above as a key turning point in my business.
