On the Schmooze Podcast: Leadership | Strategic Networking | Relationship Building
About This Show
Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

Two years ago, I decided to start a podcast. There were many technological and psychological hurdles to get past before I finally launched in July last year. In the midst of recording those early episodes and learning best practices for a podcast launch, my son was born. He’s now 18 months old and I’m excited to share that he will be promoted to big brother this December when our second son is born. If you want to get a glimpse into what motivates me to keep growing my business, check out my Instagram account at www.instagram.com/robbiesamuels.
I’ve heard that 93% of podcasts don’t publish more than 7 episodes, so it definitely feels like a huge milestone to be at episode 50. I kept going because I have been so encouraged by my listeners. Thank you for writing reviews, commenting on show notes, and emailing me about what resonated with you.
The show has been a mix of interviews and solo shows. The solo shows have been shorter episodes where I share a networking tip or technique. The content from these shows were the basis of my new book, "Croissants vs. Bagels: Strategic, Effective, and Inclusive Networking at Conferences." Writing a book isn’t easy, but having these notes as a starting off point definitely helped me reach my goal. I’ve been invested in this book for a long time, so I’m thrilled to be getting closer to the launch date on July 30. Sign up for my launch team at www.robbiesamuels.com/launchteam.
I also have been incredibly inspired by my guests - all talented professionals who have shared stories of leadership and networking. Hosti
