About 6 months ago I made the decision to overcome my fear of creating public content and launched a podcast, TR Talk, with my friend. We focus on interviewing leaders about how millennials can fast-track their personal development.
It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Not only have I learned a lot through the process of creating and promoting the show, but the guests we’ve had have offered amazing advice. Advice that I wouldn’t have been able to get otherwise.
We’ve had 30 interviews. We’ve had a wide range of guests – family members, sales experts, our bosses, professional athletes, best-selling authors, CEOs and a US Olympic Gold Medalist.
I took a moment today to reflect on the most important thing I learned from each episode.
