"I have been a featured guest on the “Patricia Raskin Positive Living” show. In the last year, I have had the great opportunity to increase the volume of my practice and also to express, inform, relate and promote Dr. Michele's Chiropractic Care and the holistic approach to healthcare. Communicating, listening and sharing my opinions with the caller's questions has given me the ability to personalize and express myself through the airways of radio and explain how chiropractic care allows the body to work from within and express health and well-being at its optimal potential. During each interview, Patricia Raskin has been very nurturing, personable and friendly. Patricia has a guidance and warmth about her that is genuine and makes anyone feel comfortable. Her knowledge, radio skills and charismatic personality send sunshine through the airways. This experience builds a bridge between the host and the callers who respond with interest and enthusiasm. I enjoy every segment with Patricia, and I do have a great deal of fun. I highly recommend Patricia Raskin. She does a fantastic job and you will always find great results! In the future, I look forward to more radio time. Thanks again.
Dr. Michele A. Pelosi, Owner of Dr. Michele Pelosi's Chiropractic Care
"When I first met Patricia, I had owned my business for less than a year and as such, I was actively looking for effective and meaningful ways to promote myself and my work. I immediately took a liking to Patricia’s kind and engaging nature as she took a great deal of interest in getting to know me and how my business intended to serve my customers. Patricia thought that my message of financial authenticity, clarity and empowerment was compelling, and she encouraged me to consider sharing my message on her radio show, Positive Business. While I trusted Patricia immediately from the beginning, I was admittedly somewhat skeptical about making the investment in a radio show since as a new business owner cash flow was not yet consistent and I was already heavily investing in other aspects of my business.
I ultimately did make the decision to invest in appearing on Patricia’s show in January 2013 with a colleague and it was a great deal of fun. Patricia was a welcoming host and both my colleague and I felt very comfortable. As a result of this first experience, I made the decision to invest in another show by myself in March 2013, and it was just as enjoyable as the first show that I did. And as fate would have it, someone listening in contacted me the week after the show and very quickly became an ideal client for my 6-month program!
My experiences as a guest on Patricia’s show have all been positive and she is a terrific and highly conversational host. With her expertise and encouragement and my preparation in advance for each show’s conversation (what I believe was an important part of attracting a new client), I’ve officially been converted from a skeptical radio show novice to a revenue-generating radio show guest!"
