(GYSS #35): Ryan Avery – World Champion of Public Speaking
“Confidence creates competence.”
Ryan Avery became the youngest World Champion of Public Speaking at age 25. He competed among 30,000 other contestants across the world! He’s also a local here in Oregon and helping keep Portland weird.
I wanted to get Ryan on the show because public speaking is one of the important skills we can utilize as millennials. Ryan and I discuss his journey in becoming World Champion of Public Speaking, the art of communication and crafting great presentations.
What’s Holding You Back From Taking The Leap Into Entrepreneurship?
It took me over 7 years of working as an employee before I decided it was time to start a business.
I guess you could say I had a major fear of failure.
But what made me finally take the leap was looking at the potential upside of entrepreneurship. I didn’t realize that there was so much more to becoming an entrepreneur besides it being a way to make more money or to be your own boss.
