“Chino Rotary Club Celebrates 92 Years of Service with Dinner/Auction Fundraiser”

Chino Rotary Dinner & Auction

Since February 1925, Rotary has been saving lives both close to home and around the world by tapping into a global network of service clubs dedicated to raise funds and awareness for challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, polio eradication, clean water and sanitation, and malnutrition just to name a few. The Chino Rotary Club is part of that global network that has united many great minds around a shared purpose: “To improve the quality of life in our community.” With a long history of involvement and financial support for local programs, the Chino Rotary Club aims at making 2017 a year to expand their support of community and international projects by hosting an array of fundraisers during the year that will help the club do what it does best, give!

“This year our goal is to raise $30,000 for Youth Leadership Camps, Entrepreneurial Training, Music, Essay and Speech Competitions for our local high school students, food, clothing and childcare for Chino Valley residents in need, basic commodities to support our active military troops, and new to our list of philanthropy endeavors is to support those who have been victims of human trafficking,” said Melinda Robbins, MBA President of the Chino Rotary Club. “We will meet this aggressive goal by starting our fundraising efforts with our 2017 Annual Dinner & Auction,” she concluded.

The Dinner and Auction’s theme is “The Heart of Chino – A Legacy of Service” which truly denotes the local club’s mission to give and serve. This event will be held on Thursday February 23, 2017 at the Los Serranos Country Club in Chino Hills from 6-9pm. Tickets for this event cost $35 per person and can be purchased online through Eventbrite.com under Dinner/Auction Fundraiser or purchased at the Chino Champion Office located at 13179 9th Street in Chino. Everyone is welcomed to attend this fun-filled Dinner and Auction Fundraiser.

The Chino Rotary Club is also seeking event sponsors and accepting items for the Silent and Live Auctions. “We seek the help of community sponsors to partner with our Club at various monetary levels to help us make a significant and sustainable difference in our community and together leave a lasting impact,” said Zeb Welborn President-elect of the Chino Rotary Club.

For more information about being an event sponsor or providing items for the auction, please call Melinda Robbins at 909-491-4791 or Zeb Welborn at 909-973-9089.

Let Zeb know if you plan on attending, send an email to Zeb@WelbornMedia.com.

Testimonials

We have received great feedback from last year’s students and we’re excited to share our knowledge with even more business owners.

There was so much information to listen to and watch. Most grateful there was show and tell time on their videos or I might have been truly lost. As it is, I now understand how to use the business side of FB more and though I should be applying it now...when the time comes that I do what I was taught I will remember but I have the resources to make it happen.

We who have taken your course are smarter than we were before! Many thanks to Zeb & Lacey for their hard work and willingness to help others!Lisa Mortensen Walsh


You and Lacey did a fantastic job putting this together and it has been very beneficial!! I would highly recommend this course to my business friends and colleagues without any reservations.George Ross

I have been on Facebook for several years and used it for personal communications. Zeb Welborn created very good step-by-step learning videos for utilization of FB for professional marketing purposes. He taught me how to increase marketability and exposure to a broader audience and learn from the metrics and tools to better promote our businesses. This is an excellent course for those who are just venturing out into marketing for their businesses.Belinda Douglas

Welborn Media University is offering a huge value in their new Facebook course. Outsourcing Facebook management to a marketing firm can run thousands of dollars a year, but Welborn Media is making industry insider knowledge available for small businesses at a fraction of what it would cost to outsource it. The Ultimate Facebook for Business Online Course is the perfect option for any business looking to grow their Facebook platform without spending thousands and thousands of dollars. Zeb is a fantastic teacher and walks students through a step by step process of how to manage a business Facebook page. This course provides an excellent hands-on learning environment as it provides real life examples where Zeb shows you exactly what to do and then leaves you with an assignment to practice on your own. I would recommend this course to anyone who knows they need to expand their social media presence.Adam Witmer,

I started using Facebook for the first time in January 2014. I was pretty lost and it seemed like a whole new world to me. Zeb helped me navigate through the noise and create my business page. Now I have more than 1000 likes on my business page and tons of engagement with my customers. Zeb is my go-to person whenever I have any questions about Facebook marketing. I would highly recommend anything Zeb teaches about Facebook.Sushant Misra,
Founder at Trep Talks

How to Be a Podcast Guest

Are You Ready to Be Interviewed on a Podcast?

Do you have a message to tell? Podcasting and podcast audiences are growing all the time. Be a podcast guest and expose a whole new audience to you and your message. Plus, with some practice and thoughtfulness you can be just as interesting as a best-selling author, give more useful advice than a multi-millionaire business owner, and maybe even be funnier than a world-class comedian.

Last week, I completed my 100th interview on the Defining Success Podcast.  I started the podcast nearly two years ago and have met some amazing people through the process.  My original plan when starting the Defining Success Podcast was to share the success stories of people in a variety of professions.

Be a Podcast Guest - from Zeb Welborn of The Defining Success PodcastSuccess to me was never financial and I wanted to interview people who experienced the type of success I feel is important.  In my mind, to be successful, a person must:

  • Love what they do
  • Be good at it
  • Be helping others

Through my podcast, I’ve had some realizations about what makes a great guest. You should be a podcast guest. I’m going to walk you through how to get on a podcast, how to interview well, and how to leave a lasting impression on the audience.

How to Get on a Podcast and Be a Podcast Guest

When I started my podcast, I announced to the world(via social media) that I was starting an interview-style podcast.  Some of my firsts guests I asked personally to be a podcast guest and others were connected to me through my social media posts.  Since my initial launch, it’s become a lot easier for me to get guests for the show because now they’re pitching me to be a guest on the podcast.

To get on my show used to be pretty simple . . . you just had to ask.  Every time someone asked to be on my show I’d ask them my three basic questions:

  • Do you love what you do?
  • Are you good at it?
  • Are you helping others?

If they said yes to all three (which of course they all did) I would schedule them for an interview.

Recently, I’ve changed the format of my show to highlight a specific learnable skill, trait, or ability. We really dive deep into the material, so I’ve become much more restrictive of who I have as a guest. Having said that, I’m always looking for new guests and I know many other podcasters are too.

Here are some quick tips to use when pitching someone on why you’d be the perfect interviewee:

  • Ask to be interviewed – In many cases, all you have to do is ask.
  • Contact the host in the format that seems most appropriate to them.
    • My preferred contact points for podcast interviews are:
      • Email
      • Twitter
      • LinkedIn
    • Other contact points could be:
      • Facebook
      • Instagram
      • Telephone
      • In-Person
  • Personalize the message
    • Don’t send the same email to all podcast hosts.
      • It’s really easy to tell which emails are sent out to multiple people.  I’d recommend avoiding it if possible.
    • Do send an authentic, personalized email to each host asking to be on their show
  • Familiarize yourself with the podcast
    • Listen to an episode
    • Read the show notes
    • Share your thoughts
  • Make it easy – make it as easy as possible for a podcast host to work with you to schedule an interview. Be sure to let them know your availability upfront and what you’d like to discuss during the interview

Pro Tip:  In your pitch to be a podcast guest, give some genuine feedback about the show and you’ll increase your chances substantially.

How to Interview Well:

When I book a guest for the Defining Success Podcast, I typically have no idea what to expect.  Ultimately, I’m trying to create the best experience for the listener of the podcast so they can get as much valuable information from the interview as possible while still being entertained.

After interviewing nearly 100 guests, I’ve developed my list of things that really make an interview stand out:

  • Don’t use filler words – Everyone does it, including me but saying “um,” “like,” “you know,” and other words really distract from the interview.  Filler words tend to creep their way in when you’re either nervous, or not clear on the material you’re discussing. The good news is both of those can be corrected with practice.
  • Be conversational – Some people will over-prepare and come off as having staged answers and seem a bit robotic.  The best interviews are ones where there is an interesting rapport between the interviewer and the interviewee.
  • Be enthusiastic – Some of the worst interviews I’ve done were with people who lacked any kind of enthusiasm or passion in the topic they were discussing.  Make the interview interesting by being passionate about the topic you’re being interviewed on.
  • Don’t talk too much – Some guests get in the habit of rambling and talk too much.  The best interviews have a great back-and-forth between the guest and the interviewer. Make a point and stand by it. If it’s unclear, it’s up to the interviewer to make sure the listeners get the point.

Pro Tip: Before you start recording, have some quick, unscripted conversation.  Make sure you both feel comfortable with each other before you start the interview.

How to Leave a Lasting Impression:

Many guests on podcasts don’t have a clear call-to-action for their listeners.  A lot of times, a guest will have some really great insights and listeners will want to connect with them further but don’t know how or don’t have a compelling enough reason to. Give your listeners something compelling to make them want to connect with you after they listen to the interview.

  • Be quotable – The best guests are those that are quotable.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done an interview where someone starts to say something extremely profound only to cut their ideas off mid-thought.  Memorable quotes are something everyone can take away from an interview.
  • Give something away – The best thing you can do for yourself, the listeners of a podcast episode, and the host of a podcast is to give something away for free. The host will love it because you’re taking care of the audience. The audience will love it because they get something for free.  And you’ll love it because you’ll get people connected to you through your email list.
    • Make sure you can create something (a useful information-packed document) that you can give away for free before you interview on a podcast. Be sure to mention your free giveaway and how a listener can get a hold of it. Send them to your website where they can sign up for your email list in exchange for your free giveaway. (Leadpages.net is a great tool to get email addresses if you don’t have a system set up already)

Pro Tip: Plan out two to three quotable sentences, write them down, and read them at the appropriate time during the interview.  This will ensure your quote will have maximum impact.

If you have a message to tell, you are ready to be a podcast guest. The most important thing you can do to get your message out to the podcasting world is to start connecting with podcasters and asking to be interviewed. It’s not as hard as you think and once you get started, you’ll realize how fun it really is.

Good luck!
