Leaders in the Trenches with Gene Hammett: Episode 84

July 7, 2015

On today’s episode of the Project Management for the Masses I speak with my friend Gene Hammond on a variety of topics.  Gene is an author, entrepreneur, coach, and the host of the fantastic Leaders in the Trenches Podcast.

Gene and I talk about how he lost his job on 9/11, his exit from the corporate world, and his ups and downs as an entrepreneur, which led him to rethink his whole approach to business and become a coach.

Check out this episode if you want to feel inspired!

Podcast Sponsorship?

As you know, I produce the PM for the Masses podcast on a part-time basis.  For the most part, it has been a fulfilling experience and it has opened many doors for me.

I would love to devote even more of my time and resources to continue to create better and better content for you.

Yet as you also know, I have only 24 hours in my days, just like you.  So I have been thinking about ways to be able to justify taking more time and dedicating more of me to the show.

Recently I have been approached by a few companies that are interested in sponsoring the show.  Some of these companies have products and services that would be a perfect fit for me and you, and I would be able to promote them without reservation.

Before I start making too many decisions, I’d like to run this by you.

What do you think of hearing a message from a sponsor during the PM for the Masses Podcast? This would only be a few seconds, and the show would otherwise be exactly the same.

This is a big deal for me, and I would love your feedback.  Ours is a tight community and I would like to hear what you have to say about this.

    Hi Cesar,
    in my opinion sponsorship for the podcast is absolute fine. Quite a few of my favourite podcasts are supported by sponsors, sometimes the sponsor’s services or products even add to the message and/or add value to me. It all boils down to careful sponsor selection I think.
    And if it helps you to get back to an even more regular podcast schedule – perfect!
    Thanks Timo

      Thank you Timo! I totally agree, and it’s good to hear this from a listener! And I’m really looking forward to sending you my book – thank you for the support once again. Almost there!

        Thanks Cesar! Looking forward to reading your book 😉

  2. Cesar,
    I completely agree with Timo. I’ve been following you since the start of your podcasting career, and you’ve always done a great job in the selection of guests and materials presented in your shows.
    Your only goal has always been providing the Community with an exclusive selection of valuable resources, carefully checked and tested by you beforehand, and I’m confident you’ll keep the same careful focus for the rest of your career 😉
    For me it’s a Go – the promotion of additional resources in your episodes can truly be an added value for the show.

    All the Best and Keep Up the Amazing Work!
    (Btw, I’m eager to hold your book! Good luck for the final steps!!)
