#20 (UT) | Terrified of Public Speaking? Listen to This! | Moby Hayat
Moby is a Tech PM at DELL, but his passion is helping early-stage founders and creatives to build businesses through The Fire Show, pitch coaching, monthly events, and videos. An immigrant to the US at the age of 19, he's currently waiting for his green card so he can monetize what he's done for free in the past -- including interviewing Austin's Mayor, live-streaming for Entrepreneur Network, and helping companies win startup pitch competitions (he has $800,000 under his belt).
“I was someone who had no confidence, no real skills, no idea what to do in the first 2-3 years of college... I failed multiple classes, was deeply scared of public speaking, dropped an entire semester of classes, almost got expelled, went from one community to another. Everything that could go wrong went wrong for me. But, I was able to build himself up through trial/error, trying new things, and pushing against fear.”
Episode 20 holds a special place for me as a podcaster because with Moby as a guest (he’s interviewed over 100 people and is far more experienced), I was the most comfortable I’ve ever been and it helped me realize my potential as a host.
