FREE Training Presented By Taylor Conroy – Learn how to land TedX talks in this free training just for Fire Nation!
3 Value Bombs
1) TedX talks can be a lot of things. The most transformative are the ones that people give when they feel that they weren’t fully ready. We as humans are never fully ready.
2) Always lean to who you authentically are.
3) The old school art of standing on stage in front of a bunch of people and being a good orator is still the most powerful way to share a message.

[1:40] – Taylor shares something that he believes about becoming successful that most people disagree with.
- People believe becoming successful does not change the way we feel inside. The process of trying to achieve it makes you change and upgrade as a human. By the time you achieve the goal, you are a different person, therefore making you feel differently.
[3:14] – The first person that Taylor helped land a TedX talk.
- Taylor told the guy to skip all the ideas that he had at that moment.
- He didn’t have presence at all, but went on to have millions of views, land 300 paid speaking gigs all over the world, and help raise millions of dollars for mental health charities.
[6:46] – Taylor’s TedX talks.
- TedX talks are a vehicle to get something way bigger than yourself into the world.
