FREEBIE: Turn Your Podcast Into a Book Brainstorming Workbook

FREEBIE: Turn Your Podcast Into a Book Brainstorming Workbook

I’m finally making my Podcast-to-Book Brainstorming Workbook available for you to download, print, and fill out!

I’ve given talks about doing just that with my own podcast, The Story Behind, at DC Podfest and will be talking about it this coming Friday (eek!) at Podfest Multimedia Expo! I’ve also talked about it on the amazing podcast Content10x recently.

When I was writing my book, I wished I had a workbook to keep my thoughts in order, but one thing that helped me a lot was being asked by my publisher to come up with a formal proposal that included the topics I wanted to write about, my audience and their demographics, formatting details I wanted in the book, etc.

I used some of those elements of my proposal when coming up with this short workbook and I hope you find it helpful!

But it should be noted for anyone doing a show by themselves without outside help that putting all the little things into the podcast they want to do can get daunting. I'll be perfectly honest and say that I'm still trying to find my footing with starting a business and working from home. In fact, I had grand plans to work on episodes of my show today, but decided a blog post was more important.

While your comfortable (or getting comfortable) behind the microphone, your guests might not be. Although they may have amazing insights to share and your audience will love them, it's still nerve-wracking to be put on the spot.

While I can't do much to take away their nerves (aside from give you my recipe for Sangria, maybe), I can offer some tips to help them feel more at ease about sounding good.

While it might be easier to have your guest join you in your studio, it's not always possible. The tips in this post are for podcast interviews done remotely.
