Hi everyone, 

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I'm super excited to kick off the new year with a big announcement about our podcast: we are going live!

This is something that I am trying out for 2018. I decided to try a webcast format where you can attend our interviews live for the recording session. The podcast will still be released on iTunes as an audio podcast, but now you will also have video replays in the show notes!

In additions to the webcasts, I'm also posting the list of experts guests now so you can submit your questions before the show. This way, I will incorporate your questions for the interview.

Of course, you can also ask questions during the interviews via the chat box. But due to the guests' availability, we may or may not have time for all of your questions.

I'm still in the process of lining up rest of the season, but here are the six expert guests who already confirmed and will be recording in the next couple weeks.


TO ASK OUR GUEST EXPERTS QUESTIONS

Leave a comment below and state your question(s).

***Since there are multiple expert guests listed, make sure you note who the question is for!

I will do my best to incorporate all the questions submitted for the interviews, but it is not guaranteed that your question will be asked during the interview because of time restrictions.
