Episode Transcription

Alison Levine:

And I've heard speakers say, "Business professional? I wear jeans and a t-shirt. That's what I wear. That's my uniform. And I don't really care. That's what I'm going to show up in on stage." And I'm thinking, if the client tells me they want me to wear a chicken suit, I will wear a chicken suit. Whatever they want me to wear, however they want me to show up, I'm there for them.

Josh Linkner:

Peter Sheahan:

And I think it's such a beautiful growth oriented mindset. And really, it takes the locus of control from outside back inside, gives you a sense of agency over your life. I can't remember the exact phrase, but it was something like, "If not now, when? And if not you, who?" Someone's got to be successful, someone's got to do inspiring things. Why the heck can't that be me?

Cassandra Worthy:

And so every day, from the day that I landed the engagement to the day that I actually did it, I did that keynote message in my kitchen. By the time I did it, all the words were there, they just dropped, just came out of my mouth. And I was able to look in eyeballs, see the energy, engage with folks. And I had a blast.

Ryan Estis:

I remember when I got the call and the offer, I was in California, and then I pulled the car off to the side of the road. My heart was pounding because I knew, I knew if I delivered that and I could measure up to that moment, that said something.
