Gold Nuggets in this Episode:

  • The art of presentation is always fundamental to business owners.
  • The first step to mastering public speaking is to shift the conversation about why the fear of public speaking exists.

  • The greatest speakers present the same presentation hundreds of times.
  • You can have an unlimited number of passions, but you only have a limited number of decisions.
    Brenden talks about a 3-step framework that we can use to improve the foundations of our public speaking skills.
  • “If we’re only going to live one life, how about we do something interesting with it.”
    A great exercise to put things in perspective is to write your own eulogy. How will people remember you when you’re gone?
  • Steve tries to change a question, and Juliet puts her foot down.
  • “Communicate the weird things that you do on a daily basis to everyone else around you, that is not illegal, and it will help remind you that you are different and you’re meant to be doing different things.”
  • “Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools speak because they have to say something.” - Plato
