This week's random plug of the week goes out to the Communication Diva Podcast from Jenn Swanson. CommunicationDiva.com is a site that wants to help, with articles, audio podcasts, and discussions about how we can all improve the way we talk to each other, and perhaps build better relationships. If you check out show, please tell her that you heard about her from The Podcast Answer Man.

Slow Start With Affiliate Programs
Dan Mattson called in to explain that's has not had a lot of initial success building affilate relationships with folks in the wooden boat industry. In this episode, I provide some of my thoughts on how Dan could proceed with building relationships with big suppliers the mentioned in his feedback. I also reminded Dan of a creative way to generate income around his niche field by creating a Wooden Boat Weekend Workshop.

I had brought this up to him in the past and I noticed that he had still not purchased the domain, WoodenBoatWeekend.com. I believe that with a great bit of determination, such a workshop could generate some serious income. As a favor to Dan, I went ahead and registered the domain so that nobody would go and squat on it after my giving it such public attention. I'm happy to transfer the domain to Dan should he decide to take action on this idea.

Interview with Gary Takacs
Gary Takacs’ passion is helping dentists develop their ideal practice. Specializing in the ‘business of dentistry’, his unique, in-depth knowledge of the components of a successful practice has helped thousands of dental offices thrive in today’s challenging business environment.

Gary recently added and audio podcast as a marketing channel for his consulting business. I am always inspired by others who have found a way to create a successful podcast around their business, and Gary has certainly done that. I hope you enjoy this interview.
