SPI 164: Michael O’Neal from Solopreneur Hour Talk Shop—His Success Journey and Actionable Tips for Interviews

In today’s episode, I’m trying something a little different. Don’t worry—this episode still has the business insight and actionable tips you guys love. But you’ll also get to know a few more personal, surprising things about me, my life, and my friend and guest today Michael O’Neal.

Michael is the host of Solopreneur Hour, a podcast with a totally unique style—a style I’m borrowing from today. Michael has mastered the art of interviewing. His approach as an interviewer allows his guests to reveal surprising sides of themselves they might not usually get to share on industry podcasts. He’s an expert at establishing a rapport, asking questions, entertaining his audience, and simply allowing his guests to have a great time.

If you’d like to hear a great example of top-notch interviewing, listen in. You’ll hear Michael’s podcasting tips, his journey to creating Solopreneur Hour, and the amazing stories he’s collected along the way.
