But before we start inviting people with influence, we need to have the right mindset. You must position yourself as a podcast host rather than just someone who will go live on social media. The key is positioning yourself as someone in authority with an audience they want to speak to. Another mindset to have is knowing that your podcast is worthy of whoever is a star in your eyes. No one is better than you, and no one is beneath you. Another mindset tip is that it's not about you - it's about them; when approaching them to be on your show, don't talk about yourself or how awesome your show is but instead focus on what's in it for them. Also, when inviting these people you admire, it's critical not to be a fangirl or fanboy; remember, you're a podcaster.
