"Patricia, Thank You!  I really did enjoy your presentation to Advertising, Marketing and PR of Rhode Island. This is the second time you have done a presentation for AMP-RI and we were so pleased to have you return.  Your two transition studies were excellent.  I know that the open format was a little different but it really worked well with the group and their interaction also provided some interesting feedback. We had a great audience with lots of Q & A after.  I think that everyone came away with an appreciation of what you can do as a transition coach.  You have the knowledge and expertise to help your client look within themselves for answers.  I think you left us all with positive thoughts and a new approach to dealing with change in our lives. It was truly an informative and fun evening."
Joyce Pucino, President, Pucino Print Consultants

"Congregation Beth David cannot thank you enough for speaking to us for our Kaddish for Six Million Memorial Day.  You were truly what "they" say you are: Inspirational, Motivational, and Eloquent.
The stories you shared with us were miraculous. Thank you for following the mission of spreading the word regarding the inhumanity of the history and time that sparks the heroism, determination, intelligence of so many who would not be defeated without a fight. Your presence, your aura, your sincerity in the sharing of these stories gave to 30 people in the audience much to think about, and much to springboard toward in conversation following your presentation….Though we did not fill the room, I can assure you, that what you said to us, has insured with others that were not there, and thus the benefit of what we learned that day with you, has spread beyond the four walls of that room.
Thank you again, and may you continue 'to be the media maven of positive messaging.'"
Shelley Parness, Corresponding Secretary, Congregation Beth David, Narragansett, RI

You have a program worth sharing.”

Radio Guests

Written by Patricia Raskin

"I have been a guest on Patricia Raskin’s Positive Business Radio Show three times this year—and the experience has been wonderful each time! Patricia’s mission is to help entrepreneurs maximize their exposure and get their messages out in a big way—so they can share their gifts with the world through their business services or products. She makes her guests feel at ease and is incredibly skilled at drawing out each individual’s special talents and expertise. As a business and marketing coach, I always recommend that my clients showcase their expertise in the media in order to enhance their credibility in their prospects’ eyes—and this is a perfect opportunity to do just that! There are so many benefits—incredible exposure for you and your business, a podcast that you can feature on your website and in other marketing materials, increased confidence for future media interviews, and so much more. For small business owners who need to prioritize their marketing spend to fit their budgets, this is clearly an activity with HIGH ROI! As someone who specializes in helping entrepreneurs market themselves, I would highly recommend being a guest on Patricia’s show to all those who do business locally."
Dana D'Orsi,

"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!"
Beth Marshall, Owner and CEO, Financially Authentic

"Patricia Raskin is a premier interviewer. She listens, asks good questions, and respects the work of those she has on her shows. In my former roles, I have been interviewed many, many times, and Patricia ranks among the very best. She's informed and gets to the core of the issues around which the interview revolves. Positive Living and Positive Business are shows that are indicative of Patricia's positive approach to not only interviews but also to living."
George Goens, Author, Consultant and Educator

"I have been a featured guest on Patricia Raskin’s radio programs for the past two years.

As a society, we need to find and express the soul in our businesses and in ourselves. Patricia facilitates this process beautifully.”

Having been a guest on her show many times,  she creates a comfortable interview atmosphere by being so well prepared herself."
