Making It Every Day (Tom Schwab)

  • Episode #122

Growing up in a family ethos of stability, Tom Schwab felt there had to be more to the world. So he took a chance at starting his now-successful business, following the mantra that life is a journey, not a destination — and making it happens every day.

Welcome to Making It! This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and the path to making it. 

Tom Schwab is the founder and CEO of Interview Valet, which helps entrepreneurs market their businesses through being a guest on podcasts.

“Every time I wake up in the morning, excited about what I get to do, I’m making it.”

Tom Schwab

Tom Schwab is the founder and CEO of Interview Valet, a military veteran, entrepreneur, and podcast interview marketing pioneer. He is also the author of Podcast Guest Profits: Grow Your Business with a Targeted Interview Strategy and One Conversation Away: A Manifesto for a Rich Life and a Profitable Business. Has successfully built several online businesses and now helps others find online success with podcast interview marketing.

Marketing at its heart is starting a conversation with someone who could be an ideal customer. Tom helps thought leaders (coaches, authors, speakers, consultants, emerging brands) get featured on leading podcasts their ideal prospects are already listening to. The Interview Valet system then helps them to turn listeners into customers. Hear Tom’s interview HERE on the Eventual Millionaire podcast.
