Manage episode 263429445 series 2391249
Public speaking made easy.
Research shows that speaking publicly is one of the most common fears. It’s also one of the most important skills if you want to gain influence, improve credibility, advance your career, and make your mark. Even though you are not likely planning on becoming a professional speaker, it’s a skill that, more than any other, will benefit you personally and professionally. You may have to make a presentation at work, speak to a small group of 10 people, lead a meeting, speak at a wedding, or even give a eulogy. You don’t want to screw these opportunities up.
This episode is a story of my own personal struggles with public speaking and a blueprint for how to avoid the same mistakes I made.

About Your Host Jim Harshaw
My name is Jim Harshaw. And I know where you’re at. You’re working hard and qualified for what you do but you aren’t getting what you want. You have plans on getting to the C-suite or launching a business but ultimate success seems as far away today as ever. You’re in the right place because you can get there from here.
And I can help.
Who I Am
I’m a speaker, coach, and former Division I All-American wrestler that helps motivated former athletes to reach their full potential by getting clarity on what they really want and taking aggressive action to lead their ideal life not just despite their prior failures but because of them.
I’m a husband and father of four. And I’m a serial entrepreneur. I’ve launched multiple successful businesses as well as the obligatory failed one. I’ve been the executive director of a non-profit and have raised millions of dollars. I’ve worked in sales. I’ve even been a Division I head coach. While I was born in a blue-collar home I have spent my life surrounded by Olympians, CEO’s and millionaires.
Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
I’ve been lucky.
I’ve learned the habits of successful people and guess what. You’re just like them. I know because I know your type. You’re programmed for hard work, which is a prerequisite for success, but you’ve never been shown how to use what you know to create the life you want with the tools you have.
I will show you how.
Why You Are Here
You've worked hard to achieve greatness. You’ve set goals and maybe even set records. You’ve definitely failed and you’ve at some point found yourself questioning if you were on the right track.
You need to understand this: You are far more prepared to succeed than those who’ve not tried, competed, struggled and overcome like you have. That’s the value of your education as someone who aims high. You are prepared to be as successful as your wildest dreams will allow.
Here I will teach you, with the help of brilliant minds that have been shaped by failure, struggle, and adversity, to be who you want to be. I sense that you want this because you have read this far.
