What to Expect as a Guest on My Worst Investment Podcast
❏ Make sure the room is quiet, lock the door to prevent intrusions.
❏ Turn off the phone, Skype, apps, and ringers as well, close any unnecessary computer programs.
❏ Listen to the sound through your headset rather than from your computer speakers to avoid speaker feedback.
❏ Get close to the mic, but slightly above it, so listeners don‘t hear your breath.

A Few Things to Think About…
The details of the people and investment are not as critical as the story and the emotions, so you can keep the actual investment information private if you wish. Or you make it as public as you want.
Though the listeners may not be able to relate to your story fully, they will be able to relate to the FEELINGS (excitement, confidence, desperation, embarrassment, anger, etc.) you had before, during and after the mistake.
Also, remember that since the audience can’t see you, let’s work on an exciting delivery to keep them engaged.
Last thing is to relax and have fun.
