Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick 019: Service, Justice, and Creation
It’s a (parked) car-cast episode of Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick! I continue to experiment with using my Audio-Technica lavaliere mic to allow me to do more spontaneous podcasting without worrying about finding the perfect time or perfect environment.
This episode includes…
- What I recognized about my sense of personal justice following two lousy (and one good) customer service experiences
- Why a service-based approach is so important
- My new mentoring / coaching service for writers, Your Story Buddy, including a listener-only discount offer on your first session
- Voicemail feedback for Sonitotum 018 from Christopher Miller
Provide your own feedback in the comments section of this post, if you like!
Links and Topics Mentioned in This Episode
- The service-profit chain
- Borders Books and Music
- The type of padlock I was struggling to remember is a discus padlock. The “bar” that does the actual locking is called the “shank.”
- Hawkeye Pierce, in particular, his sense of humor

I’m always interested in talking to independent creators willing to have a transparent, in-depth, unguarded conversation about making stuff, finding success as you define it, and staying healthy and sane in the process. Check out this episode with musician Emma Wallace to get a sense of what I’m talking about.
