We’re doing things a little bit differently this week! In celebration of releasing my 50th interview last week, I decided to bring on my good friend Hayden Cashion (who you may recognize as the first guest of the podcast) to come and interview me!
This was really fun for me to do and a really good way to reflect on everything I’ve done and all the amazing people I’ve met over the last 50 episodes.
Hayden and I cover a lot in this episode from how I found my interview style and voice (including where my intro came from), my process when it comes to research and finding guests, stories from along the way, why I changed the theme of the podcast from tactical tips to stories, one of my favourites stories that a guest said and so much more!
I also want to thank Hayden for being willing to take the time out of his day to do this (full transparency, this was his idea). I also have to give him credit for nailing the intro and outro.
We’ll be back next week with episode 51 but if you enjoyed this special episode please consider leaving a rating and review. The more positive ratings and reviews the more it helps new people find the podcast and it really helps to grow the community we’re developing here.
