The skills necessary for television broadcasting and those needed in the online influencer and podcasting space have a great deal of overlap. With that in mind, we have invited the wonderful and inspiring Paula Faris onto the show today to share her wealth of experience and wisdom from a life hosting and broadcasting! Paula talks to us about taking initiative, making opportunities out of nothing, and the big moments in her career that led to progress.

 

We also spend time on the subject of presentation with Paula sharing her thoughts on getting comfortable on camera, and how important research and homework are for professional hosting. She also talks about showing your guests that you care and are interested, and how much this contributes to good content, whether on national television or your own podcast!

 

Towards the end of our chat, Paula dives into the moment she decided to make a switch in her life and leave the career she had built up to focus on other things. She was experiencing burnout and wanted to focus on the parts of her identity not associated with work and achievement. This is where her book, Called Out, comes in, something we definitely recommend you give a read! So for all that and a bunch more, listen in with us today and remember to stay tuned for the forthcoming recap episode too!
