If you are in a professional services business, you are probably thinking, why would I have a podcast?

While this chat is some months old, it is absolutely applicable right now. Since this chat, the individual Eric speaks with, Michael Elkins started his own lawn firm, MLE Law in Miami, Florida. There are references to his old firm which proves that creating content applies to both someone at a larger firm and someone running their own business.
