Please select a day and time from the available slots listed below. Once you select a good time for you and fill out some contact information you will be emailed a confirmation. Thank you for agreeing to come on the show and sharing Your Story!
First I want to say thanks for agreeing to be a guest on Head Space And Timing. I know you will bring unique value to the listeners of this show. The great thing about podcasts is that they live on forever. So years from now, your insight can still help someone out there listening to this show!
I receive late night calls and emails from tons of people all around the country telling me that Change Your POV Podcast and Head Space And Timing Show has had an impact on their life.. how cool is that?
Duration: The show should be around 45-60 minutes in length give or take. I have to keep the total episode under 60 min as a target. There have been times when my interviews have gone over and I use the extra time to create a “Part 2” for the following week. This is usually agreed upon by both parties ahead of time because your time is valuable and I want to respect it.
Format: Casual discussion/dialog back and forth nothing rehearsed or too difficult. The most engaging podcast episodes are ones that are genuine, honest, transparent, and at times vulnerable. I will lead the way and direct the conversation so you don’t have to worry about that part. Just be yourself and tell your story.
What You Need: First, In order for me to capture the audio and record our interview, we both need to talk over Sykpe. If you don’t already have a Skype Account you will need to Download Skype and create one, it is easy and free. Once you have your account you can connect with me by searching my Skype handle – dklfrance1
You can Download Skype on your computer or your Smart Phone. You can call me from either device at the time of our interview. If you are using your computer, however, it is recommended that you use a Headset/Mic Combo
This is a very inexpensive headset mic combo that you can pick up on Amazon for around 10 bucks. I want you to sound the best you possibly can for your interview. Click Here to be taken to Amazon to check it out.
If you already have a headset you should be fine, no need to get another one. Some of my guests have used their XBox headset and they sounded great. Bottom line, don’t rely on your internal computer/laptop microphone, most have very poor audio quality and just won’t make you sound good at all.
Truth is, every guest I interview has something unique and special to share with the Head Space And Timing listeners. Because of this, every interview is very unique in their own way. I have created some basic questions that I may or may not ask during our interview. This is just a guideline but it can help you think about different things in your life you would like to share.
- I’d like to hear about you and the work you do with veterans. What organization are you currently working with, or have worked with in the past, that is making an positive impact on veteran mental health?
- If you’re currently working as a mental health professional, how did you get into the profession?
- What do you see as some of the greatest challenges in better veteran mental health, either from an individual standpoint or an organizational one?
- What’s your focus and interest area? What are you an expert in?
- What barriers to veteran mental health and wellness exist, and what can communities do to reduce them?
- There are few challenges more significant to the veteran community that the epidemic of veteran suicide. What are your thoughts on it, and how can we as mental health professionals make an impact?
- Is there a question I didn’t ask that you would like to share with the listeners?
I like to ask all my guests a closing question:
- If you had a service member, veteran, or spouse asking you, “Why do I need to work with a counselor?” what would you say to them?
- Promote your site, page, link, service or product..!!!
If you have any questions at all, please email me at:
Thanks again and I look forward to speaking with you!
