Does any of this sound familiar?
• Afraid of public speaking
• Anxious when talking to others
• Avoiding large social events

You are a great interviewer, [ask] great questions, and you actually let him speak. You were actively listening so the next question just flowed naturally. It felt like a good conversation rather than an actual interview.YouTube viewer

Why Listen To Me?

talking the talk logo

I used to be so shy I couldn't order a meal for myself at a restaurant. In my early 20s I ghosted on people and jobs so much it was my nickname (seriously, my few friends called me "the ghost").Now talking to influential people I don't know is my job and I can say with pride I'm now 100% comfortable talking to any one, any time, any place. I did a 180°

Mike Tyson and I have laughed a lot together, 50 Cent and I have spoken for hours, Jake Paul and I faced off at his house in Puerto Rico, and Floyd Mayweather and I spoke with his 40+ person entourage in tow. I used to dread being accidentally recorded in the background of someone else's video.. now I'm on camera all the time, by choice, because I actually enjoy it.

I know what it's like to be overlooked for opportunities (or get them and not show up!), feel alone because I couldn't make friends, and fracture relationships because I couldn't articulate my feelings.That's why I made this guide 100% free. Not to make a profit, but to make a difference. If I can change, so can you.
