  1. “To add growth, lead followers – to multiply, lead leaders.” — John C. Maxwell
  2. Become a person worth listening to and a listening multiplier with a clearly structured interview process so you can produce meaningful interviews that add tons of value to your listeners. 
  3. Hosting a podcast interview is a lot harder than it sounds. It’s not as simple as having a friendly chat in front of a pair of microphones. If you don’t prepare, you could end up with a boring interview, or worse, your interview could become a sales pitch. There’s nothing worse than having a discussion with someone who only wants to sell their product. 
  4. Avoid boring and salesy interviews by doing your homework and preparing in advance.
  5. [TAKE ACTION] Create your interview process that includes pertinent information like show format and time clock, a guest research and creation of interview questions plus guest expectations (number of times they advertise to their network, amount of time they need to block on their calendar, microphone and internet requirements etc).
