Video expert Kim Rittberg


I met Kim Rittberg through our good friend, author and financial expert, Bobbi Rebell (check out Bobbi’s episode  #51 here). Then we reconnected at Podfest24 in Orlando  (see my post about that fun event here).

Kim invited me on to her podcast, The Exit Interview with Kim Rittberg and I loved our interview on How to Get Your Freelance Writing Published (check it out here). She has such great media experience that I knew that she would add so much value to the podcast by breaking down her vast expertise on how to make an impact with video. Writers often don’t know what to do, or even how to get started and Kim is the perfect guide for that process. You don’t want to miss this episode.
