Thank you for your responses and ideas.
Yes, I am interested in Hosting Podcasts (being the INTERVIEWER of the
Guest) and that would be for large companies and Consulting firms as
I also like the idea of getting some local and national stories in
papers and or TV. When I was in the nightclub business producing
Singles Parties, I was on Good Morning America, Donahue, To Tell the
Truth, New York Times, Playboy, People, etc. That was the BEST way to
attract business and attention.
Thanks again for your suggestions.
