Cliff Ravenscraft

Cliff Ravenscraft – SIV #084 Shownotes

This podcast is all his fault!

Cliff Ravenscraft taught me (and hundreds of others) how to podcast. As you may know, that led to me almost getting fired. The insurance carrier I was working for thought I was teaching their competition how to sell. They demanded I stop and I caved. But of course that’s not Cliff’s fault.

When I was taking his Podcasting A to Z class, I found Cliff to be incredibly passionate and focused on the success of the students in his program (including me.) Later I had the opportunity to meet Cliff and his lovely wife Stephanie at a conference. We had the chance to break bread and they are some of the nicest, down to earth people you would ever want to meet.

Cliff has segued away from being “The Podcast Answer Man” and is now on a mission to teach thousands of  people how to “Free The Dream.” As I have followed Cliff making this transition, I knew that I wanted to get him on the Success Is Voluntary Podcast​. Of course that’s a little intimidating having the master of podcasting join you on yours! 

If you think your life was meant for more, you are in the right place! This episode will ROCK your world. It did mine.
