Debbi Dachinger: I Dare You To Live a Positive Life

This Q&A is featuring Debbi Dachinger, host of the “Dare to Dream” Radio show heard
on HealthyLife.net every Wednesday between 11 AM – 12 PM PT. I dare you to take Debbi's' dare!

HRN:  What is the greatest lesson you've learned?

Debbi: Nothing is final. There is always another chance, another choice to be made. We can reinvent ourselves or make new decisions and turn anything around. Align ourselves with new people, paces and situations. The greatest lesson I’ve ever learned is the power of choice. Don’t underestimate it.

HRN: What is something you are deeply grateful for?

Debbi: So many things. I am very rich in friends and in love. I am grateful for laughter, silliness, comedy, great food, travel, animals, amazing friendships, my loving partner, the ability to grow, self-develop and change, and the listeners at HealthyLife.net!

HRN: What's the most important thing you do to keep your life positive?

Debbi: First when I am inspired with  dream, I do what it take to create it into my reality and then enjoy the heck out of the creation. Next I keep life positive by being responsible for my side of things and for continually growing. And if I may add one more thing, my life is extremely positive due to the spectacular conversation I have with transformational minds each week on my show – they cause me to think about things in a way that is mind opening and quite motivating.

HRN: If you could DARE the listeners to do anything to create positive change for them, what will you dare them to do today?

Debbi: Cultivate empathy. It is very easy these days to not feel for our fellow humans. We are all moving so fast and so much is constantly calling for our attention that we lose compassion for each other. Empathy means learning to understand each other and it can show up, even in simple things like holding the door open for another, saying thank you, a smile, a kindness; allowing someone to talk without interrupting. Cultivate that and you can change your outer and inner worlds.

Your Book on Radio

Radio talk shows need interesting guests to attract listeners and viewers. Authors are interesting people. So if you have a book then radio shows should definitely be considered for your interview possibilities.  What's in it for you aside from book publicity?  Well, if you do a good job the general public will think that you are an expert. Did you know that 94% of guests authors do not already have a recognizable names - so chances are you can get that interview if your book topic appeals to the producers or hosts.

Here are some more reasons why you should do radio talk shows to promote yourself and your book:
1. Most radio interviews can be done by telephone, with no travel required.
2. Most interviews are live, and allow for Q & A from the listeners.
3. Interviews about you and your book range from 5-60 minutes.
4. A guest can usually give out contact and place of purchase information.
5. It is an amazing and enlightening medium that reaches a lot of people.

If you are available to do media interviews to promote your book, always remember that while you are there to promote yourself and your book, you must also provide informative and entertaining content for the radio audience. Talk show hosts will seldom invite you back if you do not first have their audience in mind. In other words...your book may help you get the interview but during the interview you must have something interesting to say that is unique and/or fascinating. Lastly, enjoy being on radio! It is a fun and enlightening experience...and you might even sell those books!

Positive Effects of Media

 "All of us who professionally use the mass media are the shapers of society. We can vulgarize that society. We can brutalize it. Or we can help lift it onto a higher level." -- William Bernbach, American advertising creative director.

Media affects us. It can change the way we think, how we live, give us awareness and updated  information and for many people give an effective means of self-expression or employment.

Although TV and movies have gotten a bad rap for violence, positive programs do produce positive results. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison analyzed 24 studies of "Sesame Street" involving 10,000 children in 15 countries and found that viewers benefited significantly in cognitive outcomes, including literacy, knowledge of the world and social reasoning.

Then there's the Internet, Social Media and Digital Advertising. Some of the positive effects can include:

- Mass Knowledge (in the past mostly educated people had access to info - now everyone does)
- Increased Awareness (about society, the world, health care, finance, travel and just about everything)
- Easy and Speedy Access
- Sharing of Vital Information and Views
- Source of Inspiration
- Discovering Uncovered Truths

In fact in our present era of globalization most people depend upon information and digital communication to remain connected with the world. The biggest hurdle in media today is figuring out what is actually fact and not just fiction or opinion.

And finally there's radio. Positive Radio. Digital Positive Radio that provides information that helps people have a happy, healthy life. No station does that better than HealthyLife.net. Started by people who have come from major market traditional radio backgrounds bringing you one of the few professional internet radio networks on the web. To date HealthyLife.net has reached over 51 million people, helping to transform their lives by giving positive information that people can learn and use to make progressive change.  Now that's a positive effect of Media!

Getting On Radio: Your Website

By Debbi Dachinger

Want to be interviewed on the radio? Have an important message to get out? One thing that will go a long way is to have your web site set up correctly with a 'MEDIA' or pull-down tab on your site. Essentially this is your online 'Press Kit'. This includes information that a station, producer or host can quickly easily access and use to determine or support an interview.

Here's a checklist of what you should have in your 'MEDIA' tab:

       A short and long biography
       Press releases, Awards, Accolades, Testiminials
       1-3 great downloadable jpg photos of you
       5-10 possible interview questions about your topic.
       A Video or Audio of your past interviews or appearances for

SUGGESTION: Pick three professionals who are doing well in the same work that you do. Then check out their website's 'Media' page. Take note of what elements in the pages that you like and do not like. Remember don't copy what they have, but use your authentic filter to see how to incorporate the elements you do like in a better way to make your site great.

Popular Topics for Aspiring Radio Show Guests

By Debbi Dachinger

Over 119 million people a week listen to internet radio which is getting much more play these days than traditional stations. Many of the biggest talk show hosts like to have guests on the air, usually via telephone. Although traditional radio wants topics steeped in sensationalism, controversy, political rabble-rousing and negative topics to create drama and spike emotions, there are some great positive topics that can still get you 'in back of the mike' and not contribute negative energy to the people and the planet. Here are some of them:

1.  Health, Fitness, Weight Loss, Nutrition & Alternative Healing

2.  Saving Money - Consumer Scams

3.  Sex & Relationships

4.   Schools, Education & Parenting

5.   Hollywood, Celebrities, TV, Movies & Entertainment

6.   Sports, Superstars and Outrageous Salaries

7.   Making Money, Stocks, Investments, Retirement & Taxes

8.   Computers, The Internet & High Tech Innovations

9.   Autos: Performance, Care, Purchase, Repair & Maintenance

10.  Travel: Deals, Destinations & Dangers

11.  Careers, Jobs & Business

12.  Home & Garden Improvement and Maintenance

If you can find something unique and compelling to say about one of these topics, and ESPECIALLY if you can tie it into a topical current event, chances are you'd be a terrific call-in guest on talk radio.  And, if you have a product (like a book or website), most of the time you'll even have
the opportunity to "plug" it on the air.

HealthyLife.net Radio 'ZAPS THE APP' with 'No App' Listening, Shows and Web Design

HealthyLife.net Radio Network (www.healthylife.net) is excited to announce that with a click of a button, on its newly designed website, 'NO APP' listening for smartphones, tablets, Wifi and other devices is available for its long-running/new radio shows.

Since 2002 HealthyLife.net Radio, a pioneer and leader in internet broadcasting, has been bending radio traditions in futuristic and innovative ways. Starting with providing 'only positive programs' and the positive news broadcast HRN News@7 to now streaming to almost all types of devices direct from its website without needing a downloadable APP. Unlike BBC 's streaming upgrade experience, HealthyLife.net's policy of 'no listener left behind' continues to provide listening for its existing Windows Media/Silverlight audience. For those who want an APP or the occasional device where listening cannot be accessed, audiences can listen via the free TuneIn App or website.

Internet radio's actual audience measurement is by streaming server statistics, not website statistics. HealthyLife.net has over 62 - 24/7 syndicated/simulcast distribution channels. Yet each channel looks like 1 listener to the streaming server, though the stream may be going to hundreds of thousands of listeners. Few distribution channels give their listener counts to HealthyLife.net. HealthyLife.net's new stream not only gleans more actual listener counts for its advertisers but, further expand its reach to even more distribution channels that allow the new format.

"We were due for a change. Hopefully the cleaner look of our website, along with the easier method to access our programs will please our listeners." states Linda Mackenzie Founder/GM of HealthyLife.net. "As for our advertisers the increase in valid multi-device audience statistics through 3rd party analysis should please them too."

As Spring 2015 brings forth new life, HealthyLife.net's brings a Spring line-up of new shows and segments like HRN News@7 Marijuana State Report with bond broker Barbara Southworth and the Arts & Entertainment Segment with Mike Hixon. Tune in to Jay Cruz's Backbeat Radio for music news and interviews,  Allen Knight's Knight Talk Live,  Marriage Works with Cathy Chambliss, the Miriam Knight Show and discover beauty secrets and trends on Patty Schmucker's American Made Beauty. All of HealthyLife.net's 168 weekly programs provide a fertile planting ground for advertisers placing ads this Spring.

About HealthyLife.net: HealthyLife.Net reaches 128 countries and over 1,240 cities in all 50 U.S. States with its over 40 recognized TV, film, radio and expert hosts whose programs help people have a happy, healthy life.
