Australian media veteran Amanda Keller has given rare advice on how to find fame 'without being pushy.'

Speaking to Rachel Corbett on the 'You've Got To Start Somewhere,' podcast, the 55-year-old's ideas appeared at-odds with today's crowd of 'forceful' fame-seekers.

'I was never a pushy, ambitious person and so I would never have just turned up and said "I deserve to be in front of the camera,"' she claimed.

Then added: 'I was never that person.' 

Amanda got her start as a researcher on Ray Martin's Midday show before becoming a segment producer on the show in 1985.

She claimed it was hard work and dedication that got her a shot at being in front of the camera.

'It was Ray Martin who said "Why don't we put you in front of the camera here?"' she revealed.

'I was never a pushy, ambitious person and so I would never have just turned up and said "I deserve to be in front of the camera,"' Amanda claimed

'That made the transition for me to do the occasional story much easier than me just turning up out of nowhere saying "I'd like to be in front of the camera."'

Trying to go straight to the top without first putting in the hard yards is the kind of mistake Amanda believes many fame hungry go-getters make today.

It was a revelation that struck a chord with podcast host Rachel, who added: 'Sometimes there's a sense that you have to push, push yourself onto things.'

'I think there are plenty of people in the business who do that and I'm the same.'

She conceded: 'It's not really the way I am built and things have probably moved a lot slower for me because of it.'

Agreeing, Amanda replied: 'I think you're right, it's a slower burn to come in the other way but you learn along the way.'

'When I look at the industry both sorts of people end up at the end together but one approach doesn't necessarily work for everybody.'

'There's a sense that you have to push': Amanda's revelations helped Rachel admitted she had to 'push' and be 'forceful' to achieve success, but it instead worked against her
