The process for selecting interview guests on the Small Business Celebration (SBC) podcast is not one that is taken lightly and serious thought and effort goes into selecting each and every one of our guests.

The process for our guests are as follows:

  1. If not personally known by the interview host, the small business owner may fill out an online questionnaire covering basic topics and questions to be asked by the interview host.
  2. Once the questionnaire has been completed and submitted, the interview host (or staff members selected by interview host) will subjectively determine the qualifications of the of the prospective small business owner and how that owner’s story, or qualifications, would help improve or motivate the SBC audience.
  3. If a small business owner is not chosen to appear on the SBC podcast, a “form letter” email will be sent to the applicant that they are not a “good fit at this time” and encourage them to apply again at a later date, no less than six months later.
  4. Once the prospective small business owner has been selected, packet of material will be sent to the interview guest including a podcast guest release form.
  5. Once the release has been received by SBC, the interview host will then conduct a telephone interview with the business owner, going over some of basic questions that will be asked during the podcast interview.
  6. After the telephone interview, the host and the guest will arrange a time and place to conduct the podcast interview.
  7. The podcast interview is conducted.
  8. The podcast interview is edited.
  9. The interview guest will be emailed as to when the podcast episode will drop.
