Testimonials

After a few months of working together, I had a podcast that was already top-ranking in the health charts!
Dr. Steven Gundry

Christine uses her journalism magic to listen intently and distill what people are saying in the most salient and punchy way possible. After our first session Christine took the words right from my mouth of what I wanted to share with the world and was able to help me name my podcast, The BS We Feed Ourselves, within minutes. She understands what an audience wants to hear and how to serve it to them on a silver platter.
Shawna Bigby Davis
The BS We Feed Ourselves
As a Host still in her first year, I was a bit insecure at the number of downloads I had. Christine broke down my analytics, pointed out strengths I never knew I had, and made them shine in my Press Kit. I got an immediate YES from this guest's PR Team. I really love the community, the support, and celebrating wins with these amazing Podcast Hosts. I'm also growing my reviews quickly because of her Challenge! Getting 20 in less than 2 weeks.

I have applied 3 small changes this month and I just checked my stats. My downloads are double! Thank You Christine!
