Michael Port: The Art of Public Speaking
When I emerged from prison after 26 years, I wanted to build a career around my journey. Michael Port, author of numerous books helped me. While running in the early morning, I listened to an audio version of his mega bestseller Book Yourself Solid. His books offered actionable guidance that I appreciated. With an aim of sharing his wisdom with the Earning Freedom audience, I reached out and invited him to spend 30 minutes with us. I’m grateful to Michael for agreeing to his wisdom with our listeners.
Michael’s books include: Book Yourself Solid, Beyond Booked Solid, The Big Manifesto, and Steal the Show. He also hosts the popular podcast Steal the Show and, together with his wife Amy, founded Heroic Public Speaking. Together, Michael and Amy use Heroic Public Speaking as a resource to help people develop and master the art of public speaking. At MichaelPort.com, they offer an abundance of free content that anyone can use.
In my research to prepare for the podcast today, I found many strategies that we teach through the Earning Freedom Mastermind Course. Our listeners in prison receive the gift of listening to Michael Port directly through today’s podcast. To the extent that they incorporate his actionable strategies that include:
- Understanding the target audience and developing a message for that audience
- Offering a crystal clear message
- Showing authenticity
- Living the message
They will find opportunities to advance their prospects for success. Since people in prison will face challenges when it comes to navigating their way back into society and into the job market, they can learn a great deal from Michael’s books.
I purchased five copies of Steal The Show because that book will help listeners prepare for success. I’ll send one of those books to each listener who writes a review of today’s podcast on Apple’s iTunes. Send me a copy of your review, along with your mailing address, and I’ll send a book.
