I’m happy to introduce Mike Ganino — the speaker coach who helped me prepare my TEDXHarrisburg talk — as my guest for this week’s episode!

Everyone has a story to tell, but not all of us are sure how to go about it.

My guest Mike Ganino is the speaker coach who helped me prepare my TedXHarrisburg talk, and today he joins me on the podcast to discuss what it really takes to create a “Mike Drop” moment in your talk.

Are you ready to share your story?

Join us as we discuss:

  • How we bring every part of ourselves into our current Great Work
  • Why do we need to balance our light against our shadow and own who we really are
  • How to stop trying to be “Great” and, instead, seek to be you
