A podcaster recently sent me a request to be on my show. Not convinced that I wanted her as a guest, I waited a couple days. Meanwhile I get another email from the same email address from ‘the publicist’ of that individual saying how much she has to offer. The email did not have ‘the publicist’ name. That made the decision very easy – no thanks – I’ll pass.

For God’s sake – if you’re going to fake a publicist then use a unique email address and fake name!

The individual responded to my ‘no thanks’ that she was disappointed with my decision and ‘What are you looking for?’ – that’s easy – authentic people.
