Smashing the Plateau Guest Instructions


Thank you so much for agreeing to be a guest on Smashing the Plateau. It is a pleasure to be able to feature you.

The mission of Smashing the Plateau is helping consultants and coaches build their business following a late career job loss.

Stories resonate with listeners. Hearing examples of transitions and transformations is an important way for you to illustrate principles on the show.

We will record AUDIO only.

We will be recording in 2 parts.


PART ONE: 20-25 minutes

  • I will introduce the show
  • I will introduce you
  • We will discuss your expertise
    • Why you are in your business
    • The primary problem you solve for your ideal client
  • We will discuss how you have navigated transitions in your career and your business
  • We will discuss your experiences being part of communities
  • As we wrap up, I will ask you:
    • To describe your special offer
    • How listeners can learn more about you

PART TWO: 1 minute

I will ask you to answer choose one of the following topics:

  • Mindset
  • Relationships
  • Business development
  • Productivity
  • Recurring revenue

And answer the question, “What is the top actionable step you have used to improve it?”

We have scheduled one hour together, so that we will have sufficient time for an edited episode of about 30 minutes.  The conversation will be free flowing, following the format outlined above.

Several days before your scheduled recording, you will receive an email from <> with an invitation to join the recording session using Squadcast.

Restart your computer before joining your recording session.

Use an Ethernet wired connection rather than WIFI for the best network stability.

Please read these instructions for additional details.

You will need to be in a quiet space, with a microphone and headset. Your computer’s built-in microphone and speaker are not sufficient quality.
