Episode 31: Bonus Episode: Ask Me Anything

Welcome to “So, Here’s the Thing!”

In this bite-sized episode, I respond to two of the most asked questions submitted by listeners to my “ask me anything” prompt.

1. What are your pet peeves when it comes to creative educators?

2. How do I pitch myself as a podcast guest?

This episode is brought to you by The Creative Educator Academy! Are you a creative who is interested in becoming an educator? Maybe you have the heart to serve and the knowledge to back it up, but how can you ensure that you’re also an excellent teacher? Join in at The Creative Educator Academy!

What are your pet peeves when it comes to creative educators? (2:59)

1. I’m not a fan of when educators take credit or responsibility for the victory or success of their students.

When this happens: When educators use the success of students to market to other potential students. This is chipping away at the victory of the student.

How to remedy: Request testimonials for your students and use them in the appropriate time.

2. Educators who air their dirty laundry publicly.

How to remedy: Handle situations with tact. If you want to make it a teachable moment, take the emotion out of it.

How do I pitch myself as a podcast guest? (9:27)

What to do:
1. Be very clear and specific on what you want to talk about.
2. Put in the time to select the right fit for your applications and do your research.

What NOT to do:
1. Do not just slide into the DMs on social or in person to directly pitch yourself. (You can ask about the application process.)
2. Do not get discouraged by a “no.”
