My philosophy is that if you stay ready, you won’t have to get ready for your big break. Here are some tips to staying ready for your media moment or speaking opprunity by coming a collector of all things related to your topic and industry:
• Make a habit of collecting articles on your subject
• Listen to podcasts on your topic
• Make sure to include both similar and opposing points of view and make a list of each
• Save photos from events of yourself as a speaker or at other events that capture you in your element as an expert
• Read your industry’s blogs, newsletters, and other publications about your subject.
Use these tips to help tell the story and have the audience and the producer begging you to come back for more!
