I grew up an introvert.

 

Hunched over behind a computer in the late 90s, writing lines of code, hoping I never had to talk to anybody.


If you would have told me that one-day people would pay me $10,000+ to give a keynote presentation to an audience of hundreds


I would have laughed my ass off and called you an offensive word.


...Then I would have vomited. 


Right on the floor.


Public speaking TERRIFIED the absolute %^&* out of me!


The thought of speaking to an audience made my stomach churn to the point of making me sick.


But with time, I learned the value of pushing myself outside of my comfort zone.


That it was possible to overcome fear.


And that out of the ashes of my terror, I could find confidence.


So going back 10+ years, I began to challenge myself to face my fear and learn public speaking. It’s been a long, difficult journey, but damn it’s been rewarding.


From a fumbling, nervous wreck to a confident speaker, I now want to share with you the greatest lessons I’ve learnt.


Here are 5 tips for beginners to improve public speaking... FAST!


“Oh he’s a natural”, they say.


Nope. I did my reps at the microphone, worked that public speaking muscle and practiced.


Now I consider public speaking my art form.


It’s my side business, a hobby that pays for me to fly around the world, meet amazing people and bring home a 5-digit paycheck.


If you’re a beginner… if you’re afraid of public speaking like I was…


Then I hope this video shows you that you can learn to speak confidently, to be entertaining and to provide massive value in a 1-to-many format.


Hopefully, you’ll find it as rewarding as I have.


Drop me a comment if you found it helpful, I love hearing from you.

Let me demystify this complex, confusing strategy they call:


Startup Funding Rounds.


Yeah, you’ve heard the words thrown around before.


“We’re raising our series B”, and “I’m looking for a pre-seed angel investor” or “We’re gearing up for an IPO”...


They may as well be talking another language, right?


Except that somewhere between those phrases, letters and acronyms is a reliable, rock-solid funding strategy that is PROVEN to work again and again.


It has turned founders into billionaires…


Put CEOs on the cover of Entrepreneur magazine…


And transformed back-of-napkin ideas into living breathing companies.


So let’s cut to the bone and spell out the sequential funding rounds in PLAIN ENGLISH.


Including:

- What each funding round means


- How much money you can expect from each round


- Who provides that money


- How to tell which round a business needs next


- Who leads a company through each round


- Why the rounds even exist in the first place!



If there’s a part of you that feels intimidated because you don’t yet understand all the “CEO talk” (yes, I’m using air quotes here), then don’t worry.


I didn’t either. 


Now I could write a dictionary on “corporate jargon” 3-houses-thick and I would never even recommend anyone reads it.


But in those early days, I was beating down doors to find someone - anyone - that could spell out the basics when I was trying to start my first business.


By the end of this video, startup funding rounds will finally make sense. 


Drop me a comment if you’re still not sure about anything.


I’d love to hear from you.
