Michael Hyatt: How I overcame stage fright (and how you can too)
**Connect with us!**
Welcome one of my mentors, Michael Hyatt, inside the Greenroom! In this episode, we discuss how to overcome the fear of speaking, avoid the “road warrior” trap, and how to host a world-class live event.
Earlier in my career, I attended one of Michael’s events and I was absolutely blown away by the quality of the content, as well as the event experience. He taught me how it’s possible to win in both business and life, without having to sacrifice your family in the process. This episode is PACKED with value as we cover a variety of golden nuggets throughout.
Michael Hyatt is the former chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, and now a bestselling author, speaker, and successful entrepreneur. He serves as an influential voice on the topics of leadership, business growth, goal-setting, and productivity. In fact, his business was recently added to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies for the third year in a row.
