The Thoughtful Entrepreneur Host,

Josh Elledge

Note: Due to demand, we typically book interviews out 5-6 weeks in advance. Shows then publish 4-6 weeks following our interview.

If you want to bypass the queue, you can sponsor an episode with an optional Fast Pass. (See below).

Guest requirements:

  • As a business, you should be experiencing some very good momentum AND be grossing 6-figures or more annually. We'll be talking about how you scaled your business.

  • Consider your company as having ‘purpose;' and thoughtful in your mission.

  • High-authority expert consultants or B2B businesses only, please. Sorry! No B2C companies (even though I would otherwise LOVE talking B2C!)

  • You offer higher-value services to business leaders/owners.

  • No insurance / wealth managers / financial planners unless you sell services (such as coaching) beyond your products.


  • We have a VERY high-quality audience. We also get 10-15 guests scheduled every week - so we've had to tighten our requirements. We've interviewed (1600+) 6-8-figure business owners.

Our typical publish date is 8-12 weeks from today.

Deadline? We offer a Fast pass option to sponsor an episode and get scheduled and published ASAP. This includes lots of additional promotion to our huge audiences.

Not doing the 'Fast Pass?' No worries!

  • Schedule the podcast interview below.

After you book:

  • I will share some vital tips (via video) to help you connect with our audience, gain some great exposure, share the questions I'll ask, and hopefully encourage some great connections and customers from our audience.

  • Enjoy the scheduled interview with me via Zoom video.

  • We'll produce all the assets, social media posts, and even video clips to promote our appearance. We hope that your appearance leads to great customer and partner opportunities.

Some final tech tips...


We'll be recording on Zoom VIDEO. We will likely grab a couple 30-60 second video snippets of our chat to promote you to our audience of over 130K. Try to be well-lit so we can see your smiling face!

Please have a quality microphone ready to go prior to our interview. Gaming headsets and internal laptop microphones are usually very poor quality and will require rescheduling our interview.

Blue Yeti $110

Blue Snowball $50

Order this on Amazon and you can have it in 2 days. If you would like to do more podcast interviews, this is something you'll want to have.

⭐️ Optional opportunity: ⭐️

Because nobody likes to wait in line!

  • The Thoughtful Entrepreneur has become an incredibly popular podcast for guests to appear on. Because of more than 40 interviews booked a month, your episode will likely air 4 months from today.

  • We've added this 'Fast Pass' option by request - mostly from our more successful guests and ambitious PR/Podcast Guest firms.

  • Due to our popularity, we have a long production schedule - even while publishing a new show 7 days a week.

  • You or your client are going to have an AMAZING experience whether you bypass the line or not.

  • We would never otherwise ask for payment if you don't want/need to sponsor the episode with a FastPass. We're honored to share your story and offer with our audiences either way!

Benefits of a Fast Pass:

  • Get booked head of the line. I can interview you/your client next week if you sponsor the episode through our FastPass system.

  • Get your episode published within a few weeks from today - as opposed to 4 months.

  • We will promote your episode heavily to our audience of 130K on social. We'll create and promote multiple video clips, images, tagging you and linking to your site. We'll also backlink to your site from

  • Let's make sure to promote your offer to all. If you listen to The Thoughtful Entrepreneur, you'll hear how artfully I advocate for our guests' amazing offers.

  • If you sponsor an episode with a Fast Pass, we can loosen up guest requirements (see above) for sponsored episodes if you do not 100% fit our requirements above.

  • I will mention at the beginning of the show that we're grateful to have you as our sponsor for transparency / disclosure purposes. Listen to an example.

  • One-time investment of $997. How many of your products do we need to sell to recover this investment?

  • Order today, and grab 60-minutes with Josh on a secret schedule form, and we can execute our visibility blitz to an experienced and sophisticated business-owner audience.
