In this episode, we sit down with Tony Whatley, community builder and bestselling author of Side Hustle Millionaire as he shares his best practices for gaining the knowledge and courage to take action. Tony shares his insights on the importance of being fully invested in what you’re doing rather than just being interested, and how building a business while dealing with imposter syndrome is like trying to build a house on quicksand.
Listen in as Tony and I discuss the value of understanding that business is a long and fun journey, and how becoming an engaging speaker can be a powerful tool in building your brand. We explore why it’s often easier to book a speaker for an hour than it is for 10 minutes, and how leading with powerful content can make all the difference.
Finally, Tony shares his tips for making a presence on stage and how he commanded respect as a twenty-something in the oil and gas industry. He leaves us with the powerful message that high performers are confident because their message is very certain, and that investing in yourself and your message is the key to success. Tune in to this episode for valuable insights on building your brand and becoming a confident and engaging speaker.
