They know that to make change in the world they have to start with themselves. So they come to this show to ask bigger questions, find the tools and tactics to make them better entrepreneurs, and to be inspired by other’s stories.
After you schedule your interview on the calendar, you will be sent over a zoom link and rough outline of theme of questions being asked during the interview.
Because each interview is uniquely crafted to suit the guest, the questions are not the same for every interview.
The interview will be about 60 minutes in length and be recorded with VIDEO & AUDIO.
The beginning of the interview will start with thoughtfully crafted introduction (many guests have asked for this intro afterwards for their publicists!)
After the introduction we will follow this rough outline:
Part 1) Your Story, Your Mission, Your Secret Sauce - 30 mins
This is all about your story, the challenges you faced along the way, and some knowledge from your specific expertise.
Part 2) Your values, Your Ideals, & Answering Life's hardest questions - 30 mins
This is where we get to your deepest values and what drives you, your ideals on business and life, and where you see the world going.
My last question is the one I ask every interview and only one that needs a well thought out response beforehand which is: How can we push the world to evolve?
After the interview I will be editing the episode for publication. Depending on how many guests are in front of you, your episode will be live within 14-90 days. You can expect an email from me before your show goes live with all the links to your episode.
Included in publication will be:
- Audio distributed accross all podcast platforms

Here is a list of common podcast interview FAQ’s that I get. Please review them before hopping on a chat so that we are both aligned.
If you do not already have a slot on my calendar, then you can pick a time slot that is convenient for your calendar here.
Just be cool, calm, and relaxed. It’s nothing more than a chat between friends so don’t make it something more than it is.
Obviously audio quality is really important for a podcast, so if you have an external microphone that would be great. If you don’t have one it’s not the end of the world.
Be at your computer when we do the interview and not on your mobile phone. You can plug-in your mic or headphones into the computer and be ready to go.
Zoom, the audio/video conference software I use, is over the internet, so make sure you have….. internet. Zoom cost nothing for you. You’ll just click the link included in your Calendar invite. (Note: the link will not immediately be available in your calendar event but I will be sure to add it before the scheduled time)
Around 60 minutes, but please let me know ahead of time if your schedule it tight.
Yes, this matters a ton! It should be somewhere quiet to ensure there isn’t a lot of background noise. Sorry, Starbucks won’t work for this, neither will driving down the road in your car.If you have a fan or something that makes noise where you plan to do the interview, either move it or cut it off.
Go to the calendar invite and look at the notes/description. There you will find a Zoom link – click on that. (note: I add the Zoom link after you schedule the time slot, so if you do not see it immediately on the calendar invite, don’t worry, I’ll add it.)
Don’t sweat it, I can edit it out. If you didn’t hear something I asked because it cut out, just ask me to repeat.
Because each interview is uniquely crafted to suit the guest, the questions are not the same for every interview. However you can view a rough outline here.
The last question I ask every guest is "how can we push the world to evolve?"
Yes. It occasionally slips out of my mouth when I'm also passionately talking about something.
Nope, not unless you need it. If you need to take a restroom break, no biggie, I can edit it out.
For sure, I’m sure it will come up in the discussion and I will also give you a chance at the end to plug your product/service.
It depends on how many episodes I have in the queue. Anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
Place your mobile phone, tablet, etc on Do Not Disturb mode.
Get some water before we start.
Cut off any computer applications that sync data as it impacts audio quality. Best thing to do is just exit anything that is not Zoom. Exit out of any other tabs you may have in your browser.
If you have a habit of tinkering with things when you talk, please remove items that can make noise while we talk such as: paper, which people tend to shuffle around; pens, which people tend to click and open; mouse, which people tend to click; other items on your desk, which people tend to slide around. All these things get picked up by the microphone.
