Thank you for joining our podcast and volunteering your time to help the inventor and entrepreneurs listening to our podcast. We truly appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to give knowledge, support and insight to our growing community. This podcast will be recorded via audio and video.

In this page you will find several sections giving you some insight as to how our show works, the questions we may ask, and how we are planning to give back to you for the time you have so graciously given to us. Also, please subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or Google Play and leave a review/rating, for your convenience we have included the links in this packet.

In the help section you will find some tutorials in case you are experiencing any issues getting connected to our podcast. We ask you to join in 10 minutes early if possible in case we experience any technical problems, this will give us time to work through and get you connected. Please note we sometimes run late on our Podcasts, if we are finishing up an interview with an earlier scheduled guest feel free to listen in and Carmine will wrap up and begin yours right away.

We have supplied a list of common questions that have been asked during the show (the list is not specific to you). If for some reason you would like us to not ask about a certain subject, then please inform us to stay clear of this as soon as possible since we begin prepping for future shows several days prior to taping. Secondly, if there is a question you want asked then make certain you send this to us right away allowing time to prepare working this into the session.

It would be very helpful if you could provide the following items to help promote your episode.

  • Short Bio
  • Recent Photo.
