Hello hello everyone!
Glad to be back for another episode of The Inner Changeamaker.
If this is your first time checking us out, My name is Jay Wong, I will be your host.
This is THE place dedicated to purpose-driven individuals and passionate creators. We are all about learning how to create impact and interviewing people that are choosing legacy over currency.
Last week, we had an Olympian by the name of Daniel Hayes giving us the behind the scenes of the Olympic scenes and what goes through his mind as he enters the RIO 2016 games.
The mindset of an Olympian.
If you missed it, please go check out that episode.
As you heard in the teaser,
Today, we have
THE peter Shankman on the show.
But before we get there.
This episode is sponsored by Podcast Your Brand Mastermind.
Podcast your brand is a 2-month accelerator program meant to help you launch a top-rated podcast, put your personal brand on steroids ( the good kind) and get your message out to the world in a bigger way.
If you have been following my journey the last 6-8 months or listened to the last episode, you know that podcasting literally changed my life.
I went from no email, no real brand, no business model to speaking internationally on my podcasting story, interviewing my mega-influences such as Yanik Silver, Bob Proctor, and an Olympian haha.
I finally created a real online business that allows me to travel and if you follow my vlogs, then you know I am hustling and trying to balance everything in my life.
I have been working with a very selective group of messengers and creators the last few months to help them do the same in their lives, create the top-rated show they deserve, get their message out to the world in a bigger way and ultimately change their lives.
Right now, I am gearing up for a mega-launch come end of month for a NEW group starting in May, so if you are a messenger, an entrepreneur or creator ready to share your story with the world by launching a top-rated podcast as well as actually figuring out how to make $$$ from this, then I invite you to jump on the waiting list.

Now let’s get to today’s episode with Peter Shankman.
The New York Times has called him "a public relations all-star who knows everything about new media and then some,", while Investor's Business Daily has labeled him "crazy, but effective."
I love his twitter, where it list out like 15 things,
Including @NASA advisor, Ironman. Skydiver. Dad.
Peter Shankman is a spectacular example of what happens when you merge the power of pure creativity with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and a dose of adventure, and make it work to your advantage.
He is a bestselling author, entrepreneur, speaker, and worldwide connector, Peter is recognized worldwide for radically new ways of thinking about Customer Service, Entrepreneurship, Social Media, PR, marketing and advertising.
Peter is best known for founding Help A Reporter Out, (HARO) which in under a year became the de-facto standard for thousands of journalists looking for sources on deadline, offering them more than 200,000 sources around the world looking to be quoted in the media.
HARO is currently the largest free source repository in the world, sending out over 1,500 queries from worldwide media each week. HARO’s tagline, “Everyone is an Expert at Something”, proves over and over again to be true, as thousands of new members join at helpareporter.com each week.
In June of 2010, less than two years after Peter started HARO in his apartment, it was acquired by Cision, Inc.
Peter is the founder of ShankMinds: Breakthrough, a private online entrepreneurial community, with members in more-than-ten countries.
Peter also hosts the award-winning podcast on ADD and ADHD, Faster Than Normal, which is helping to turn the conversation around ADHD from curse to gift, by interviewing successful people who have made ADHD their secret superpower.
