Tip #2:  Spend one week watching local and national TV– like from WUSA9 to The Today Show to Ellen. Educate yourself . Make a youtube video of yourself showing your expertise in action- let the power of the internet work for you. Insider Secret: Dr. Oz staff scours the internet when looking for potential guests for The Dr. Oz Show. 

Tip #3: Write up 3 pitches. Make sure they have a hook and think visual.  It’s all about the tease.. so fill in the blank when thinking of your pitch: “When we come back ___________” 

BONUS:  Come up with 3 stories form your life that you can use for interviews. Being a ‘relatable’ guest will make you more appealing to producers and the people booking the shows.

READ THIS: Buckley’s Story 

A while back I profiled Ingrid King, a local feline master teacher who did Reiki on my dear Atticus. I was so excited to see King’s new book because it’s something that as one reviewer described should be ‘A “must” for everyone who has ever loved a pet’. The story of her beautiful cat Buckley leads us through how our pets teach us to open our hearts to the world.  It reveals lessons learned through the life and eventual death of a beloved friend.
