Golden Nuggets from Episode:

  1. Get creative and find a way to STAND OUT to your potential podcast guests when approaching them to be on your show. 
  2. Let your uniqueness solidify who you are.  Often times the flaws that you may be a little insecure about are actually blessings in disguise because they will help people remember who you are.  
  3. Talk about your passions and don’t try to fluff it up with a bunch of unnecessary hype that isn’t authentic to you and your message. You will be AMAZED at how many people are passionate about the same things you are no matter how niche the topic. 
  4. NEVER let the fear of the unknown or being considered “self-centered” hold you back from promoting yourself. If you never promote yourself, then you will never get the opportunities that you desire and that you’ve been working so hard for!
  5. Never ending improvement is VITAL for success. You can never get complacent in your skill set because there is always more to learn and more work to be done.
