I'm a great believer in practicing what I preach, so when the chance to talk about my book on the radio presented itself, I jumped at it. I appeared on BBC Radio Leeds in the UK with presenter Stephanie Hirst, you can listen again above.
Chapter 6 of Make Yourself a Little Bit Famous has all my advice about how to handle media appearances, even if you are a newbie! It's a great way to raise your profile and get known for what you do.
It can also be a lot of fun once you get past the nerves, again advice in the book. I certainly enjoyed chatting about my early career at the BBC. Take a listen.
Make Yourself a Little Bit Famous is jam-packed with stories, advice, case studies and encouragement.
Penny shares pro-tips on:
- Getting on TV and radio and acing your appearances.
- Bossing it as a speaker and when you present to people.
- Shining when you take part in or chair a panel discussion.
If you want to be a best-kept secret, then step away from this book. But if you recognise the value of raising your profile for your business or career, then step up – because now is the right time for you to make yourself a little bit famous.
