Collaborate with Competitors – Say What?

On this show I’ll be talking with one of my favorite collaborators, Ray Powers, the host of The Ray Powers Hour. We’re going to talk about something we both do every week on our radio shows – that is working WITH people who could be perceived as our peers or even our competitors. That’s right, we bring people on our radio shows that offer products and services that are very similar to what we do – why in the world would we do that?? Why not just promote ourselves on our shows? Why give other people exposure on our shows? You will have to tune in on Nov 2 to find out 🙂 We’ll also be getting a listener’s perspective of how we do our shows — its going to be interesting to hear what she has to say… she’s a bit outspoken… 🙂

Premiering Thursday at 6 pm PT/9 pm ET

Lauren’s Notes We Discuss –

  • People have expertise in different areas of focus
  • Offering different perspectives on topics that I focus on
  • The opportunity to learn more about a subject is enhanced when you work together.
  • Learning more will help in caring for those you’re trying to help.
  • Website offers a link to the guests Nikki has had on her show, given the listener more information about the guest. It shows the listener and website viewer that she chooses people very knowledgeable in their area of expertise, listing education and experience.
  • Part of the charm of Nikki’s shows is that she finds issues that are relatable to a lot of people, and it gives us the opportunity to learn and grow in a positive manner.
