Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to catch up with one of my guests “in real life.”
Author Chris Guillebeau (guest on episode #100) was in Minneapolis to meet his tribe of followers and speak about his most recent book “The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future“ (affiliate link).
If you haven’t listened to my conversation with Chris, I encourage you to do so today. For your convenience, I’ve include the file/media player at the beginning of this post.
A Funny Thing Happened on The Way To Becoming a Podcast Host
I’ve been fortunate to meet some amazing people in my lifetime. In fact, as part of my “day job”, I meet new people every day. On Monday, as my friend Kurt and I made our way into the Midtown Global Market - and this, about 30 minutes before the actual event was scheduled to start - we ran into Chris in one of the shops.
Never one to miss an opportunity, I immediately reached out my hand and introduced myself. Chris’s response to my introduction … “ah yes, I recognize the voice! Wonderful to meet you in person Marc.” More than 5 months has passed since we recorded the episode he did for The Conversation Hub and for him to recognize the voice was pretty cool!
I may have a face made for radio, but it would appear that my voice is memorable! Probably a good thing for a podcast host!
Be sure to pick up Chris’s book – it will change your life!
Words of wisdom from Chris … “Inspiration is good, but inspiration combined with action is even better.”
Go forth, be inspired and make something happen!
Be well and make it a great day!
