I’m the host of “The Coaching Through Chaos Podcast: Bringing You what You Need to Succeed”. We are an official Bloomberg Radio Price of Business Show Podcast. I produce weekly guest-focused episodes presenting products, books, or programs designed to inspire, motivate and empower my audience. Once a month, I feature an episode designed to provide a resource solely for our Veterans and their families. We just launched episode 15 and our audience is growing every week!!

Since our launch in June 2015, The Coaching Through Chaos Podcast has been on several “New & Noteworthy” pages on iTunes including making it to #8 in “Science and Medicine” and #2 in the “Social Sciences” categories. Recently, we’ve moved into the “What’s Hot” pages and I’m thrilled with the progress we’re making at building an audience for this service-based podcast.
We can also be found on Soundcloud, tunein, ipodder, CoachingThroughChaos, and Stitcher is you’re not an iTunes listener. You can find our Season 1 page right here

I’m looking for Guest Experts – That’s where YOU come in…..

I’m looking for my next 20 guests for The Coaching Through Chaos Podcast! I know some of you receiving this email fit the bill: you are an expert at what you do and you have a book, program, course or other resource that could be helpful for my audience. I WANT TO TALK TO YOU!!!

Even if you do not fit that description, I’ve learned that our world is getting smaller and smaller with the connections through social media. My ask of you is that you share this email with people you think may fit that description so that they can have an opportunity to feature their work on my show.

Once a month, there is a Veteran-Focused Episode….

Once a month I feature an episode dedicated to a resource solely for our veterans and/or their families. This has been tougher than I thought to get guests for these particular episodes. I know I am connected to so many people working with our vets or connected to some great veteran-focused organizations – I WANT TO TALK TO YOU!!!

Am I really offering you FREE publicity? Yes!

This is truly a labor of love for me. I’ve spent the last 13 years working as a therapist in San Diego- I’ve worked with so many different types of people and spent so much of my time trying to figure out how to best help others. I have found that often a person has a need but they don’t know what resources are available to them to meet that need. I’m building this show as an online database of resources. I write accompanying blog posts on the topic/guest of the week and always provide some links to resources (including my guests website) for the audience to begin to help themselves.

How to contact me
You can respond right here on Linkedin to this message, but I prefer that you contact me on via email DrMullen@CoachingThroughChaos.com

Thank you – I truly look forward to connecting with you!
