Ideal Guest Avatar: My ideal guests are lifestyle entrepreneurs – people that have built successful businesses without compromising other personal values or lifestyle goals. They build businesses that allow them to live life on their own terms. Ideally, they’re able to share a story of transformation, having evolved from working in their business to working on their business, and in doing so creating the freedom to focus on other aspects of their lives that are important to them (time with family, health, travel, philanthropy, etc.).
Advice for podcast guests: Be professional. Show up on time for your interview. Use a professional microphone. Eliminate distractions and be prepared to give the host your full attention during the interview. Know who the target audience for the podcast is, and adapt your responses for that audience. Use real stories and examples to support your advice (avoid fluff, theory, and hypothetical examples). It’s perfectly fine to wrap up the interview with a call-to-action for the audience, but please avoid hard-selling your latest product or service during the interview.
