In this episode, I interview Thando Zono, a motivational speaker, author, All-American athlete, and my intern! You’ll learn about how Thando wrote a book while also attending grad school, hear some of her advice for speakers, and listen as she tells us how everything changed for her when she became an author. She also shares the funny story of how she became my intern, tells us the three most important principles in her book, The Pursuit of Excellence, and teaches us how to create a culture of success. Thando is a ball of positive energy and she seeks opportunities at every turn. Her outlook, advice, and vision for excellence are inspiring to say the least. Enjoy!
