Power of Public Vulnerability and Entrepreneur Collaboration

It’s time for another throwback Thursday and based on the last time, you guys are going to enjoy this.  On this episode, I’m bringing back one of the rawest and most talked about podcast interviews I gave in 2016 with my good friend Bryan Kramer.  Bryan is a great interviewer and because of our friendship, he was able to get me to open up on a wide range of topics from vulnerabilities to life lessons to my path to becoming a speaker and much more.  I have a feeling you’re going to really enjoy this interview.  Make sure to check out Bryan’s two books both of which I have read and the links to his website and podcast are listed below.


Authentic Success

Throughout his many successes, Brian has kept true to his authentic self both on and off stage. Being vulnerable in this way has not been an easy feat to accomplish but the rewards, both professionally and personally, have far outweighed the risks.

Listen in as we discuss how vulnerability, authenticity, and honesty can pave the way for a successful and rewarding career in public speaking.

In This Episode:

  • The power of networking and volunteering in establishing a speaking career
  • Why taking risks on being yourself means some lost opportunities in the short-term but a long-term reward for your career
  • How an authentic and successful career as a speaker means public vulnerability
  • Why being an entrepreneur does not mean being a soloprenuer
  • Celebrating wins and avoiding burn-out
  • Why keeping your ego in check means being publicly honest about your struggles
