Where are you right now? Your car? The gym? On the train? The bus? Wherever you’re listening to this podcast, you’re probably doing it alone. Maybe with headphones on. It might feel lonely, but do you know that there are people all over the world listening to this very same podcast? Maybe at the exact same time that you are.
Unfortunately, a huge challenge in the online space right now is creating community.

Our guest today has done some interesting research in the online teaching space and talks to us today about some challenges and successes that come along with it. Alex Rister teaches communication and presentation classes at a university, pursues her second M.A. in Interpersonal Communication, and serves as Vice President of Marketing and Communications for the Junior League of Greater Orlando. In her spare time, she curates Creating Communication, a blog on best practices for communication and presentation.

It all ties together, and is perfect for you – the modern entrepreneur who is sharing your passion online.
