'I don't see the point of doing an interview unless you're going to share the things you learn in life and the mistakes you make. So to admit that I'm extremely human and have done some dark things I don't think makes me unusual or unusually dark. I think it actually is the right thing to do, and I'd like to think it's the nice thing to do.'Angelina Jolie
'I never realized it until I watched an interview, but sometimes my brain stutters between thoughts, and for some reason it comes out as an 'ummmm.' I'm hoping it's because I'm so smart, and there's just too much information to process, but it's more than likely just because it's a small processor.'Justin Baldoni
'I think anyone doing an interview is to some extent on show. And therefore, we always want to put on our best face.'Cherie Blair
I’ve just done my first podcast interview with The Full Stop Podcast 🙂 Lots to learn… firstly not to get so over excited that I just talk and talk and talk….
So, lesson number one: draw breath – regularly.
Lesson number two: avoid punctuating sentences with ‘you know’ – Lordy who knew that phrase would pop out of my mouth so often?
Lesson number three: stop beating yourself up about the mistakes made in the interview and furthermore do not feel the need to then share the flaws and apologise for them in advance on social media and indeed on one’s own website.
Lesson number four: just enjoy yourself. I did.
