Our recent interview with Kristin Giese did not fail to deliver several ah-ha takeaways that we are highlighting in this episode. Our conversation with her was all about getting booked on television, and, as you will hear from Kristin, you need to up the entertainment value rather than concerning yourself too much with the information. Because television is primarily about entertaining viewers with embellished stories and drama!


That is not to say that you should be anyone other than yourself, however. Kristin talks about tapping into your “heightened authenticity” to strike the balance between being true to yourself while still giving the audience the fanfare they want. We also talk about what Kristin said about social media, viewing everybody as a meaningful connection, and doing your research before making a pitch.
