Thank you for your interest in being a guest on our podcast!

Podcast Cover

Before we schedule your podcast, I just want to give you a bit of information about the format of the show and what you need to do to prepare. 

First, If you haven’t listened to the podcast yet you can subscribe or listen to individual episodes on my podcast page

Please keep in mind that, while this is a great opportunity for you to promote what you do, the real reason for this podcast is to provide value to the listener. The podcast is geared toward small business owners and providing information to help them navigate the tricky waters of owning and running a small business. Of course, you’ll have the opportunity to give your contact information at the end of the episode and I’ll also include it, along with a link to your website or other links, in the show notes. 

Lastly, this is a free service that I am providing. In fact, it costs me quite a bit of money and time. The reason I’m doing it is to provide a win-win-win so that my listeners are educated, you have an opportunity to share how you help people, and I can position myself as someone who helps small businesses find the resources they need to be successful.

Flow of the interview

To help you prepare for the interview, I have prepared a brief overview of how it is structured. Generally speaking, this will be a question/answer style interview so there is no need to prepare a long talk, I’ll prompt you with questions. I schedule the interview for an hour, but most of them take between 20-40 minutes once we start recording. 

Introduction:

I will introduce myself then I will introduce you.

History

Tell me a little about yourself, how you help people, and about your journey up until now.

Main Topic

I’ll prompt you to speak about the main topic we have chosen. Let me know if there are any “leading questions” you want me to ask. 

Today

What are you working on right now that is new or exciting?

Future

Where do you expect your business to be in 12 months?

Lightning Round

  1. If you could gift one book to everyone you meet, what would it be?
  2. What’s the biggest mistake you see business leaders make?
  3. What’s one tool (piece of technology, process, methodology, etc.) that you can’t live without?
  4. If you could have lunch with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
  5. Tell me a fun fact about yourself that people may not know

Conclusion

Where can people reach out to you to say thanks? (Email address, website, phone number, etc.)

And finally, who would you like me to try to interview? Why?
