MWIE 012: Chris Brogan (Ruins an Interview)

Before “My Worst Interview Ever” began, I put a list of people together who were “dream guests.” Essentially, they were leaders in the industry who I didn’t expect to get on the show, but I sure hoped to. Each had to fulfill all of the following requirements:

  • A thought leader in the business, entrepreneurship, podcast and/or broadcast spaces
  • Having done (or been a guest on) a ton of interviews
  • Have a great/painful “worst interview” story to share
  • Lead a passionate tribe of people who would naturally benefit from hearing their interview story

Chris fit all of those perfectly. And, miraculously, he agreed to be on the podcast. As he mentions in the interview, he does his best to serve others through his life and his business. And today he served us very well, indeed.

For most, Chris Brogan really needs no introduction. Put simply, Chris helps people and companies use media and community to attract customers. He’s an author, a speaker, a blogger, and business owner…and has a ton of free, helpful resources on his website
