    Love the statement: “Don’t be average. Kylie didn’t stop with 101 ways to make extra money, she made 1001, and that’s part of what sparked the interest in the book deal.” Don’t stop! Push yourself to do better and more!

    Still not working for me. I don’t have speakers … I just play it directly on my netbook. Another podcast of yours worked perfectly fine for me a couple of weeks ago. Oh well, I guess I’ll just skip it and cross my fingers on the next one. 🙂

  3. Katharine, I left the interview portion in stereo. Make sure you have both speakers on. I usually turn everything into mono, but forgot this time.

  4. Katherine says:

    It seems like there’s a problem with this audio file? I can hear your intro for the first 30-45 seconds or so … but then there’s just some blank space (although every so often I can hear something rustling in the background) and finally I hear your guest talking … and then I realize that the recording of what your guest says is coming up but we cannot hear anything that you’re saying to the guest.
