• Thank you for being a Guest

    We’re excited to hear your story!

  • Here’s a quick start

    1. Please Email elisha@driventowinpod.com
      • Your favorite headshot
      • A short, one paragraph bio that highlights your best assets
      • All social media accounts for you and any of your projects or businesses
    2. Microphone — One that plugs directly into your USB port or smartphone works great. Let us know ASAP if we need to loan you a mic for the recording.
       
    3. Headphones — Keep them handy, you will probably need to wear some.
       
    4. Camera — Feel free to use your smartphone, but please find a place to sit it while we talk.
       
    5. Environment — Try to record in smaller rooms with carpet, or rugs. Offices are great, and one of the best places is a closet, but the lighting is so bad! 
       
    6. Interruptions — Avoid the unexpected by letting people know where and when you will be recording.
       
    7. Background noises — Be aware and avoid open windy areas, direct fans, AC units, or other loud noises.
       
    8. Start thinking about this question"For anyone that’s driven and wants to make an impact, what advice would you leave them with?"

    Once you’re scheduled for a 60 min podcast recording, a few days prior to your interview, we will send you any links and instructions you’ll need for the interview, and add this information to our calendar invite as well.

     

    We edit our recordings to achieve a professional and consistent sound by removing background noise, “ums” and “ahs”, and dead air. We want you to sound GREAT!

     

    If you are able to record a copy of our conversation on your end using a recording software we provide, please reach out to elisha@driventowinpod.com to arrange to install and set this up remotely for you. This is not necessary, we just like to remote copy in case of any technical issues.

  • What did I say yes to?

    Good question! The podcast will be distributed on all major streaming outlets, and we will be using the video across all social media platforms so we can tag you and your company or projects for promotion.
