Podcast Episode #122


This week I am excited to have Michael Hyatt on the podcast. Michael is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. It is also a Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Amazon bestseller. He’s also the former Chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers. Michael now writes, speaks, and coaches full-time. He lives just outside Nashville, is married, and has five daughters.

Some highlights from today’s episode include:

  • Social media has created an unprecedented opportunity for people to have access to and be influenced by Christian leaders.
  • Twitter is an opportunity for you to be a resource to other people.
  • If your church doesn’t have a website, it doesn’t exist. People won’t take you seriously because they think you don’t care.
  • Consistency is more important than frequency when it comes to blogging.
  • Social media is both an insight station and an influence station.
  • If you’re going to be active in social media, you need something to fill the well so that you have something to give out.
