When someone says that to me I jump back in fear because "brain picking" conjures up pictures of the walking dead surrounding me gnashing their teeth trying to eat me alive.
In that situation I'm fighting for my life and you best believe I'm getting away in once piece.
But I get it, sometimes you need to talk to someone to get a fresh perspective on your project.
For instance, check out this email I got from one of my beloved Podcast Mogul subscribers:
Hope your Christmas was great! I was curious if you would be willing to jump on the phone for a 15 minute call or so. I would pay you for your time for sure and would appreciate it very much.
What I am looking for is help putting my thoughts in order on a new project I am going to be doing this year. It's the kind that you know you were meant to do, but have no idea how to do it or how to monetize it. lol… terrible combination probably but it's who I am. 😉
So basically just wanted to pick your brain and get some ideas on organizing a plan for 2017 that includes a podcast etc. Let me know if this possible and what I could pay you. Thanks."
Normally I would ignore anyone who asked to "pick my brain."
But if you look at how this fella did it, first he offered to pay me – which is a good idea.
And for anyone that wants to pay to chat with me, you may.
You should know it's gonna be expensive and I don't have too many slots open because I'm usually neck deep working on other projects.
I'll save you the suspense and let you know it's $500 buckeroos to book a 1/2 hour call with me. You can grab your 1/2 hour slot to chat with me at —> http://thepodcastfactory.com/consulting/
