How a 6-Word Lesson from My Dad Transformed My Career and Business Growth

When I was 9 years old, my father, who had only two years of schooling, taught me a secret that I have carried with me ever since. This secret has proven to be a masterstroke for growing a personal brand, advancing a career, and even building a business. More on that in a moment.

Those who apply this secret, whether consciously or unconsciously, reap incredible rewards.

For me, it has been the foundation of my journey, enabling me to visit 25 countries as a speaker, trainer, and facilitator.

This experience demonstrates how some lessons learned in childhood can have a transformational effect on our lives.

Here’s what my father told me: “Son, wherever you go, speak up.”

What he meant was to make your presence felt, and the quickest way to do that is by speaking. You can achieve this by confidently sharing your opinions, comments, and questions in any setting.

Speaking up enhances your personal brand, especially if your contributions are valuable. The most critical skill I encourage you to develop is public speaking, as it allows you to impact and influence large audiences.

In the workplace, speaking up makes you more visible to decision-makers within and outside your organization, boosting your personal brand and career. In business, you can use this strategy to market your products and services, accelerating your business growth.

My challenge to you? Speak up as much as possible, wherever you are.
