This podcast answers some of life's most challenging and awkward communication questions. We cover everything from diffusing a jerk to asking for a raise. We'll talk about how to start a conversation at a networking event, and what to do if your nose starts running in the middle of a presentation. You'll learn how to handle these situations with ease. These episodes are based on actual questions from my clients every day and come with practical tips you can start using immediately. I've kept these episodes short, so you get just what you need, when you need it, without having to listen through long, drawn-out interviews. Listen, whether you're talking at work, home, or just hanging out with your friends, there isn't an aspect of your life that isn't impacted by your communication, so why not be the absolute best you can be?

Today, I'm answering a question from my good friend, Jared Olsen. Jared is the head of Customer Success and a Product Evangelist for Motivosity. "How much research must you do before you can talk about an idea in a public setting?"

If you've ever wondered about how much research you need to share an idea when you're speaking in public, take a listen to my answer here. The answer is simple…maybe not easy.

Thanks for sharing your question, Jared!
