Ideal Guest Avatar: 

Successful entrepreneur with a great back story! Any background is ok, but business owner is best. If not, they should have a unique or interesting point of view on personal or business development.

Not appropriate for this podcast: Too woo-woo, psychic, energy healing, and similar. It’s awesome stuff, just not for our audience.

What are you looking for in a guest :

Natural conversation, and any notable accomplishments are helpful. Do you have great (yet compact) stories to answer with? Are you fun? Can we legitimately enjoy the interview together? I don’t want to spend an hour with someone I don’t really get a long with 🙂

Best advice to offer those looking at being a podcast guest:

Be yourself, really have fun, so I can see us hanging out together. Tell your story, but don’t just tell us a “series of events” what’s the story? Don’t try to sell yourself to everyone.
