4. Keep the Introduction super, super short
5. Let them tell their story...allow them to open the interview...ask them to share something interesting, strange or bizarre about themselves, no one else may know about.
6. Get them to share some Before and After stories...
then ask: What did you learn from that experience? What was the biggest take-away
7. Set up a timer on your phone
8. Keep your question and answer segment- 3-4 minutes long
9. Keep your recording area quiet - Close doors,
