Buzzy claims it wasn’t that he was so smart - he just prepared better. Listen as he shares his insight into the best ways to prepare for any big event or performance. He also talks about his experience on Jeopardy. Buzzy is the author of the audio book Get Ready: A Champion's Guide to Preparing for the Moments that Matter (https://amzn.to/3tSdp04).
