Podcast Episode 14 – With Sebastian Rusk

Why Faking Your Way Till You Make It Does Not Work In Public Speaking

June 29, 2022

Play the part until you become it because
faking will work to some extent but will never sustain you in the long run.
Daily, strive to learn the techniques, weaknesses, and strengths to succeed in
public speaking. The use of words is very detrimental to what we want to
achieve. Believing in faking it till you make it identifies your
unauthenticity. It depicts becoming somebody that you are not or acting out of
integrity. Join this conversation where Sebastian Rusk shares the secrets to
becoming a success in your podcasting journey and public speaking through more
than a decade in public speaking. 


Sebastian is an entrepreneur, speaker,
podcaster, and the author of Podcasts SUCK!: (if you don’t have one). He is
