In this podcast episode, I interview Dr. Kate Mason, founder of Women and Wild Retreats, about the transformative impact of women's retreats on mental and emotional well-being. Dr. Mason and I discuss the stress and pressures women face, particularly in balancing work and family life, and the importance of self-care.

She highlights the variety of activities offered at her retreats, such as breathwork, mindset workshops, and fire walking, designed to empower participants and foster personal growth. The episode underscores the value of taking time to reset and reflect, and provides guidance on choosing the right retreat.
In this episode of "Does It Make a Difference," host Bob is joined by Naomi Wachner, founder of Calibre Virtual Assistant Services. They discuss the significant impact virtual assistants (VAs) have on businesses, particularly in scaling and revenue generation.

Naomi highlights the diverse services VAs offer, such as client-facing support, financial admin, and inbox management. She explains Calibre's integration process, emphasising the importance of matching VAs with clients through initial conversations and a two-week trial period. Naomi also details her strict selection criteria for VAs, which includes positivity, transparency, quality, formal qualifications, and experience.

The episode touches on the changing landscape of employment, where businesses downscale to focus on core functions and seek VAs for efficiency without the complexities of traditional employment. Naomi likens Calibre to Hotel Chocolat, a premium brand known for quality, to illustrate her company's high standards in the virtual assistant industry.

This is the first in a new series of video podcasts aimed at asking the question of local experts if their particular skill/service/talent makes a ‘real’ different to their clients. Although I am intending to keep this local to Hereford, Worcester and Gloucester I did start posting about this in an international Livestreaming forum and Kelvin from the Two Monkeys Agency in Perth Australia was one of many who replied. When I was working in Australia years ago the one thing that struck me most of all was their willingness to give things a try. If you could prove you could do a job, they hired you. It was that simple. So it is no surprise they have taken to streaming in a big way.

Benefits of Audio Podcasts


1) Convenience: Listen while doing other tasks like commuting or exercising, making it easy to fit into busy schedules.

2) Accessibility: Available on multiple devices, anytime, anywhere, catering to diverse audiences including those with visual impairments.

3) Engagement and Connection: Builds intimacy with hosts and guests, fostering a loyal community and trust among listeners.

4) Low cost barrier to entry. Compared to other forms of media production, such as video or written content, podcasting has a relatively low barrier to entry. With just a microphone, recording software, and an internet connection, virtually anyone can create and distribute their own podcast.

Ideal topics to consider


1) Foster Engagement: Topics that spark conversations and discussions among listeners, such as current events, personal development, or storytelling.

2) Demonstrate Expertise: Subjects where hosts or guests can share specialised knowledge or experiences, like technology, business, health, or education.

3) Entertain and Inspire: Content that entertains, inspires, or offers escapism, such as comedy, true crime, fiction, or interviews with celebrities and influencers.

4) Serve Niche Audiences: Topics that cater to specific interests or communities, ranging from hobbies like gaming, cooking, or sports to specialised fields like science, history, or psychology.

5) Educate and Inform: Podcasts that provide valuable insights, tips, or advice on relevant topics like finance, politics, self-help, or personal finance.

 Monologue v Interview format?


Monologue Format: Ideal for subjects where the host can share expertise, storytelling, or personal reflections. Offers a more focused and controlled narrative, allowing the host to convey their thoughts and ideas directly to the audience. Works well for topics where the host's personality and storytelling ability are key to engaging listeners.

Interview Format: Provides variety and diversity of perspectives by featuring guests with expertise or unique experiences. Allows for dynamic conversations and insights that may not emerge in a monologue. Appeals to audiences interested in hearing from different voices and learning from experts in the field.
