Description

On this episode, Chris Van Vliet is a guest on the podcast "Learn Speak Teach" on the Real Business Connections Network hosted by Ben Albert. Chris talks about being laid off early in his broadcasting career and what he learned from that, the science of asking better questions, why gratitude is so important, changing your mindset and a fun rapid fire round at the end.


This is from the original podcast description:


By asking the right questions, we can achieve almost anything. Find out how in today’s episode with Chris Van Vliet.


Chris Van Vliet is a 4-time Emmy award-winning TV Host, Entertainment Reporter, and YouTuber based in Los Angeles, CA. He has traveled the world reporting on events like the Oscars, Grammys, and the Cannes Film Festival.


You may be familiar with Chris's interviews on YouTube, but to call them “interviews” doesn’t seem fair because they are so much more than that. Chris dives deep into interesting topics with his trademark conversational approach, making it feel like two old friends catching up. This is the case when chatting with wrestling superstars like John Cena, The Rock, or Hulk Hogan, or a Hollywood A-Lister like Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise, or Will Smith.


Let’s tap into some of his wisdom.
