Rising Stars: Meet Mike (The Positive Gaines) Gaines

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mike (The Positive Gaines) Gaines.

Hi Mike, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
During the pandemic (like most) I was bored at home. I had always been a fan of talk shows, press conferences, etc. I always said if I ever got the chance to do something similar, I’d put my own twist on it. Fast forward 2 years later, I’ve recorded over 50+ interviews with celebrities and everyday people. I recently self-published a children’s book on Amazon called. David’s Next Move.”

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It hasn’t always been a smooth road. In regards to podcasting, it can be difficult to work out availability on my end as well as the guest.

There were times that I had thoughts such as do I have the right equipment, is this podcast going to make sense? what am I going to talk about? In regards to writing a children’s book, finding the right illustrator, and making the story make sense were challenging at times. I’d say things are smooth now, and I appreciate the journey of it all!

Any big plans?
I have more interviews coming out on the podcast. I’m looking to expand on the podcast in the future. I have a new children’s book due out before the end of the year.
