Ideal Guest Avatar: I’m looking for guests who can help our listeners sell more books. I am also looking for guests for the Creative Funding Show who can help our listeners make more money using platforms like Kickstarter, Patreon, Affiliates, and Sponsorships.

What are you looking for in a guest : A clear communicator who has a unique story and who has practical experience doing it themselves. I like guests who are not overly self-promotional and who have good microphones.

Best advice to offer those looking at being a podcast guest: Buy a good microphone on Amazon. The Samson Q2U is typically $50-$60 and will make you sound like you are in the studio with the host.
