CAUTION!
Don’t spook reporters – here’s how!  
  
Speaking to the media can be daunting, even for the most established CEOs and founders. Failing to prep properly can evoke fear and result in a wicked aftermath , haunting both you and your company. To avoid putting a nail in your coffin, follow these three tips during your next interview: 
  
1. Don’t ramble – Say what you’ve got to say in 30 seconds or less to avoid losing a reporter’s interest.   
  
2. Avoid fillers (um, like, ah) – They’ll undermine your intelligence, diminish your messaging and kill your credibility. 
  
3. Don’t go unprepared Identify the key messages you want to convey and practice pivoting any tough questions you anticipate. 
  
Have a Franken-tastic interview!
