This is a fun and lively conversation about all things speaking, from what to charge to what makes a great TEDx talk to setting long-term goals.

My guest is Dorie Clark, who is a keynote speaker, a top business thinker, and a bestselling author. 

Dorie has given 4 TEDx talks since 2015. Her most recent one this year currently has over 1.7 million views (!).

I’ve been a fan of Dorie’s since reading her books, including The Long Game, Entrepreneurial You, Reinventing You, and Stand Out.

Dorie and I talk about:

  • Her goal of writing a musical that appears on Broadway (with my love of Hamilton, I had to start there)
  • What it means to think and set long-term goals in a short-term world
  • What makes a great TEDx talk (hint: it’s the opposite of what we do in our businesses)
  • What to charge for speaking engagements
  • And much more
