~From Dr. Sydney Scott

 Are you nervous, wanting to get your voice out but.... Jim Masters takes all the BUTS away. How ? He talks with you, asking insightful questions in such an intimate open way before you know it he has captured you as you shine- you at your very best for the world to hear and see. There is no better guide by your side than Jim Masters" - Dr. Sydney Scott and The Alchemist Professors.


 I have had the pleasure of working with Jim on both a video interview and a series of radio interviews through CUTV News. Jim is an excellent host; making you feel comfortable and at ease, creating questions and dialogue that facilitate the conveyance of the material to the listeners – which is great. He has a natural curiosity and generally wants to understand what you do and how the listeners can benefit. I highly recommend working with Jim if you have the opportunity".

From Jamie Levinson, president of Jamie Levinson, Consulting, LLC.

  Hello Lou,
I want to thank you for the terrific experience I had with CUTV. I just completed the 2nd conversation which was with Jim Masters, who I can’t speak highly enough. Jim has an authentic and warm style which made the conversation flow beautifully! You can tell he is really interested in his speaker and thoughtful as he speaks. Really enjoyed working with him.

I have one request - I see I do not have a picture next to my archived interviews. I would like to have one there- so I have attached one to this email. if you could see that it gets up there -I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you again very much for everything - was a lot of fun! Happy holidays!

 Good Morning Lou,
Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed being interviewed by Jim Masters yesterday. I found him to be so amicable, pleasant and a joy to interact with!

As for my own personal experience, Jim truly created a comfortable milieu and set at ease all concerns related to the delivery of my preparations! In fact, Jim was so very gracious and accommodating to the entire experience that I am truly grateful that he was radio host yesterday and will again be on December 15th.

When will yesterday's radio show be achieved? I looked for it on the CUTV News site earlier this morning and did not find it. Is it your procedure to post only after the two interviews have been completed?

Thanks for your time!
Have a wonderful day and a good weekend!

 Dear Lou,

RE: Katherine Trinity – Spiritual Alchemist, Energy Healer and Teacher
November 4th CUTV News Talk Radio Interview with Jim Masters

I am writing this letter to highly compliment Jim Masters.
He truly is a ‘Master’ interviewer and well seasoned in his craft.
I found his style of interviewing very engaging with the ease and comfort of having a conversation with an old soul friend.

I liked that he didn’t just ask basic scripted questions, but that he wove the questions into the interviewing conversation, which enabled me to communicate the information that was most important to share. Although I know he is a pro... and he has a similar style with the many people he has interviewed, I felt a genuine sincerity and interest of engagement from his part.

I also enjoyed our post interview conversation and am very much in alignment with his humanitarian causes and interests! I am grateful to have had the opportunity to connect with Jim.

Wishing you Peace, Love and Light
Katherine Trinity

 Dear Lou,

THANK YOU so much for the opportunity to have been interviewed by Jim Masters on CUTV News today. It was the most enjoyable and, I believe, successful interview I’ve ever had—and I’ve had a few. He made me feel so relaxed talking about my book (Laugh Your Way to Real Estate Sales Success) and life experiences and brought out information that I really wanted to share.

He obviously cares about showcasing his subjects in the best light and even took the time to call me afterward to chat and let me know that we did great—a lovely courtesy, since most interviewees would wonder (and worry) about how they performed.

I will definitely be back for more Jim Masters interview when I complete my next book. If I were to rate Jim’s interview skills, I’d give him a 20 out of 10!

 Thanks so much, Doug for your guidance and energy during our interview! It was such an honor and pleasant experience being on CUTVNEWS radio with you!

Linda Liljedahl

 I cannot tell you how much fun it it to finally get to tell the public how great Civil Mediation is, how good it is for the general public, how much it could help them, and how easily accessible it is to them. After trying to do this on my own for about 20+ years, after just 1/2 hour on this great show I reached more people than I ever have. I can't wait for my next 2 shows, the next one tomorrow Friday, 9May2014 at 3 EST. Thanks for everything!! Always, Linda Liljedahl

P.S. Also Thanks Twice to Doug for his great questions, guidance and mentoring. I don't think you can have a bad interview when he's the one leading. I'm looking forward to more talks in the future, too.
