One of the most helpful things you can do to grow your business is to regularly share free content.

There are all kinds of side benefits to this: you get more followers, better search engine results, and most importantly - more people who trust you.

All of this ends up leading into paying customers.

The problem for many business owners, though, is that it feels hard to come up with consistent ideas of things to write or podcast about.

In today's episode, I share several ways you can come up with new content on a regular basis. Use these to create your own podcast or regularly updated blog.
