A great TED talk has the power to change people’s lives. For an entrepreneur, giving a TED talk can propel your career and personal brand to a whole new level.
Some of the biggest influences in my life have been TED talks from Brene Brown, Thandie Newton, Simon Sinek and Matthieu Ricard, among others. I’m sure that they, or others like them, have also inspired you.
Hoping to one day give a TED talk, I jumped at the chance to interview Wes Chapman. He recently gave an amazing TED talk about worthiness in the modern world. I wanted to know how he landed his TED talk, how he prepared for it, and what he did afterwards to maximize the value of his speech.
