Colin Ryan “The Biggest Backfire of My Speaking Career: Here’s What Happened..”
In this solocast episode, Colin tells a story he’s never made public: the story of the biggest speaking backfire of his career.
And more importantly, what it can teach us about managing emotions, choosing your path, and protecting your courage.
10+ years of speaking will create a ton of amazing opportunities and experiences. But that willingness to put yourself out there is both a competitive advantage and a predictable risk.
“When you present, you put yourself in public. Which means you put yourself in the fragile and precarious spot where almost anyone you’re in front of can give you feedback of any kind.”
Come for the great lessons, stay for the schadenfreude.
