Interviewing Tips from Kerry Lutz

Some quick interviewing tips Kerry Lutz recently shared:

Some tips to interviewing that I’ve found helpful over the years.

  • Write your show notes before the interview. It will focus you.
  • Don’t write out questions; do bullet points.
  • Have your intro done in advance, but always keep it brief. Don’t list all of your guest’s accomplishments in 10 seconds or less.
  • Open-ended questions.
  • Look for the angle–especially with people who get interviewed a lot.
  • Ask them something about themselves that nobody knows about. Example: “What’s an interest you have when you’re not at work?”
  • Remember, facts tell and stories sell, as Wayne Allyn Root says.
