About

Doug ForestaHello and welcome to my website!

My name is Doug Foresta, and I help service professionals expand their reach and attract their ideal clients.

My journey into this work began in 2009, which I decided that I wanted to become a professional speaker. However, my son was under 5 at the time, and I realized that I didn’t want to be away from home for weeks at a time.

I was working with a business coach, and she told me I should try podcasting. To which I replied “What is podcasting?” (And you might be asking yourself the same thing!)

My coach explained that podcasting was a way to speak online to people from all over the world without leaving my home.

I decided to give it a try and started my first show on Blog Talk Radio. I was so nervous, even though I had zero listeners! The name of my show was BreakFree to Success and I started and stumbled and said, “Hello and welcome to Breakfree from Success.” I was so embarrassed and felt like I should just give up.

I didn’t give up though and decided to try again. Slowly I got better at it, and built a following and audience.

Today I’m the producer and host of Creating Change on Empower Radio and The Coachzing Show on iTunes and Stitcher Radio and I feel so blessed to have a global platform to share my message and help people transform their lives.

I’m most passionate about supporting YOU in sharing your message and work with the world. I know it can be scary, and there’s that little voice that says “Who do you think you are?” But the world needs your voice and needs your gifts.

As a coach, teacher and mentor I’ve helped over a thousand people from all over the world learn how to use the internet to get their voice heard, build their brand and tribe and create change.

I’ve interviewed over 700 people on my podcasts including New York Times Bestselling Authors, CEO’s and Academy Award winners. Previous guests on my shows include:

  • Lisa Sasevich (The Invisible Close)
  • Adam Urbanski (Marketing Mentors)
  • Kathleen Gage (Power Up For Profits)
  • Armand Morin
  • Dr. Joe Vitale (The Secret)
  • Mary Morissey
  • Grant Cardone
  • Larry Winget (A&E)
  • John Lee Dumas (Entrepreneur on Fire)
  • Kendall Summerhawk

And many more!

I’ve had a hand in creating over 100 different podcasts and countless webinars and teleseminars, but my favorite production is my amazing son, Samuel!
