Hiring A-Players, Reducing Stress and Enjoying Life with Grant Baldwin
Gentlemen, raise your hand if you’re working towards creating a better life for you and your family.
Now keep it there if you can honestly say that you regularly take the time to look back with gratitude and appreciate your successes.
I say we can always do a better job in that department. And today’s guest, Grant Baldwin, is a living embodiment of that practice. He’s super clear on his goals and runs a highly successful company. But he doesn’t stretch out to a point where he can’t show up 100% for his family.
Grant is a keynote speaker and founder of The Speaker Lab, a company that teaches speakers how to find and book gigs. During his 10+ years of experience, he’s coached more than 2,000 other people to become better speakers.
One mind-blowing fact he shared is that in the past year, zero people left his company. Yes, zero! That’s pretty incredible.
Naturally, Grant is someone from whom I learn a lot. He really opened my mind to what’s possible when building a business, and I’m glad I can share our discussion with you.
In today’s episode, we dig into his journey to becoming a professional public speaker, conquering the fear of asking people for help, and the hiring process that allows him to entrust his business to his employees without thinking twice.
