What is it that’s preventing you from becoming your ideal self? What do you need to do to become the person you want to be? In today’s episode, host John Laurito proudly shares his speech at a TEDx event at Babson College. He shares, vividly, his first-ever public speaking stint that didn’t turn out so well. And with that, he talks about bridging the gap between your real self and your ideal self. What do you need to do, and what does it really take for you to reach your goals?
