Podcast Ep. 111: Seth Godin on Public Speaking, Fear, and Business

Seth-Godin-Claim-the-Stage-podcast-Angela-LussierSeth Godin needs no introduction, but for those of you who want details, Seth is the author of 18 books that have been bestsellers around the world and have been translated into more than 35 languages. He’s also the founder of the altMBA and The Marketing Seminar, online workshops that have transformed the work of thousands of people. He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything. You might be familiar with his books Linchpin, Tribes, The Dip and Purple Cow. His blog (which you can find by typing “seth” into Google) is one of the most popular in the world. In 2018, he was inducted into the Marketing Hall of Fame. His latest book, This Is Marketing, came out in November 2018. Also, I’m a huge fan. If you listened to episode 109, you heard why I love him. In episode 110, Mark Metry and I talk about interviewing him. And now, here he is!

On today’s episode, I make a big announcement and we talk about:

  • how Seth decides what to write and speak about
  • how Seth deals with fear when it pops up and what it means
  • what makes a speaker good and what makes a speaker remarkable
  • Seth’s process for putting a speech together and what he has learned about himself through writing and speaking
  • parenting wisdom and how it compares to entrepreneurship
  • …and so much more!
