EPISODE 9: Speaker and Author
Episode 9 was a blast talking with Speaker and Author David Rendall. I met David for the first time in the spring of 2017 at the High Five Conference in Raleigh, NC where he was giving a keynote and he left an imprint on my life because I agreed so much with what he was speaking about. It was almost like he was speaking directly to me and some of his experiences actually helped guide me onto some of the things I am involved in today.
In this episode we discussed a variety of topics associated with valuing not only your strengths but also your weaknesses and pursuing adulthood with things that make you happy and are what you want to do vs what others think you should be doing. David explains his upbringing, dealing with tragedy, how an experience in college altered his life, practical advice on becoming a better speaker and much more.
I hope you all take a listen through and I think you will appreciate the vast knowledge as well as the great perspective David has on life.
