I was interviewed on the radio before my last networking workshop for introverts and now you can listen to it here.
On the morning of the live interview, with no advanced scripting or warning, I walked in to the DJ booth and the host, Chris Collins (shown right), immediately “came out” on the air as being an introvert. Love it!
So we chatted about how I might help him and others with their resistance to networking. It was not only fun, we covered many of my networking secrets in only 8 minutes.
Phew, for an introvert, being interviewed live without any conversation in advance, I was a bit nervous beforehand. And of course I said a few things I’d like to edit now but I bet I’m the only one who noticed that stuff.
In the end, it was so fun that I felt like I wanted to go back every week. Hmm, radio ideas brewing.
Enough Stalling. Now You Can Listen…
You Should Get Interviewed Too!
By the time I walked the two blocks to my office after that interview, I had two email responses related to the interview.
And now I’ve been asked to do two more interviews, one local show and one for a national Internet radio show. (Of course I’ll post those too when ready.)
If you’re a business owner, I recommend getting interviewed on the radio by a good host. In my case, the host made me a copy for my website. He’s smart to do that because now I’m giving his show a plug!
I’m sure there’s a good radio opportunity where you live. Just pick up the phone.
Hint for introverts: We tend to enjoy one-on-one conversations, so interviews for radio or podcasts can actually be in our comfort zone if you just focus on that one conversation.
