380 Are Podcasters Narcissists? & New Interview Request Procedure

Man holding up a picture frame around his headAre Podcasters Narcissists?
From the time I started getting involved in social media, I began hearing people talk about Narcissism. Not that I was a Narcissist, but that just sharing about your life on social media seemed to be a very narcissistic thing to do. Someone had posted a comment on last week's episode about Narcissistic Personality Disorder and suggested that episode 379 was a bit over the top.

I'll admit that I do feel that I can go overboard when sharing my own journey. However, I genuinely struggle with that and feeling called to share my life, online, in an authentic way that can help benefit others. With that said, I figured I'd take a closer look at symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. In this episode, I share the thoughts that I had as I was reading through these symptoms.

 
 
New Interview Request Procedure
I have been blessed to have gained quite a bit of attention and exposure for my business over the past several years. As a result, I am often presented invitations to be a guest on other podcasts to share my story. In this episode, I share why being a guest on other podcasts is among one of my favorite things to do and why I have done so few podcast interviews so far this year.

More importantly, I share how I intend to get back into a regular routine of making myself available for these opportunities with my new podcast interview request procedures. If you want to hear all the geeky details, click play now.
