Jaime First Launched Flint Stone Media 7 Years Ago TODAY!
Seven years ago today, I had a dream. I was in my cubicle celebrating my 15th year as a data analyst and DESPERATE to break free. After discovering my talent for promotional work, I took my first big step toward the actualization of that dream and planted the Flint Stone Media flag. As you’ll see below in the timeline, it has been an INCREDIBLE ride that has opened all kinds of doors, allowed me to experience both personal and professional growth in a way I never could have imagined or predicted, and given me my wings.
However, the Flint Stone Media dream quickly expanded beyond myself. Not only is the spirit of FSM rooted in making our clients‘ dreams come true, but the company’s growth has allowed me to grow an amazing team who is seeing some of their own dreams unfold through FSM, too. And, I could NOT have done a BIT of this without them. (For my 2020 personal reflection on my journey that includes a TON of amazing photos, click here.)
And, this next phase of Flint Stone Media has another VERY exciting development–especially for podcasters with goals and a TON of questions on how to get there…

And now, as we embark on beginning our eighth year of Flint Stone Media’s life and work, I have added a new layer onto this journey: podcast coaching! For all these years, I have provided podcast consulting to my production clients at any time they’ve needed to reach out. And, I’ve looked for opportunities for them along the way, as well. I have also been a podcast instructor for the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, teaching podcasting to completely green students.
However, since joining Clubhouse and providing value to all kinds of people both entering the space and looking to grow. And, SO MANY people on that platform have been asking me for coaching outside of being the show’s producer. They may be producing the show themselves or already be working with a production company. But, they really need help with the direction of their show. So, after much arm-twisting (not really that much, lol), I put together Producer Jaime’s Coaching Program!!
