It’s not often that I get to be interviewed by a good friend.

So when I do, I open up and dive in.

This is what happened when my good buddy Mark Shapiro, a former marketing executive at Showtime Networks Inc., and now the host of The One & Only Podcast and a transformational coach, interviewed me recently for his podcast.

By the end of the episode, I realized it had been such a good conversation, my audience would probably appreciate hearing it as well.

So, with Mark’s permission, I’m sharing this episode, which Mark hosts, on The School of Greatness, to give you a deeper glimpse into who I am, what has shaped me, and where I am at currently.

This is a fun interview as well because Mark includes twists like The Truth Challenge and The Rapid Fire Round, which I think you’ll enjoy.

If I had to put a theme on this conversation, it would be authenticity and vulnerability, which is how Mark and I became friends in the first place.

Get ready to learn a lot more about what makes me tick in Episode 272 with guest host Mark Shapiro.
