Bobby talks about what it means to be a thought leader, as well as how he started his speaking business with simply a few speaking topic write ups. He discusses what it was like to do his TED talks and gets into a great discussion with Cindy and Jason on introversion vs. extroversion and how both personality types can be great speakers.


Jason and Cindy finish the program by answering a listener question about whether to use “walk-on” music.
