There is only an answer when there is a question. In life, there are times where we are held back from the things we want because we are just so scared of asking. In this great episode, John Livesay talks to not one but two amazing guests.

In this increasingly competitive global environment, it is so tempting to become everything to everyone. However, the guest for this episode, Grant Baldwin, begs to disagree. He believes that you should be known for one thing, that you should be a steak house and not the buffet. This is one of the great reasons why Grant is the success that he is. He is the Founder of The Speaker Lab and the author of a new book called The Successful Speaker. Grant takes us inside the contents of his book and shares with us some great tips on how you can become one. Extending that not only to becoming a speaker but to growing your existing business as well, he then highlights the importance of working with what you got and improving as you go.
