There are so many reasons I am so very passionate about podcasting, but perhaps the most powerful reason is that after years of waiting for other people to make my dreams happen for me, technology has given me the tools to create my dreams for myself.

Lets show the traditional marketing world that we have purchasing power! We have a powerful voice!
