From aspiring actor to transformational public speaking trainer

25 years ago, Michael Port earned his MFA in acting from NYU before working in TV, film, and theater. Now, at the Heroic Public Speaking Headquarters in NJ and for organizations around the world, he teaches non-actors what actors know about how to give better performances both onstage and off.

Michael is the author of six books including Book Yourself Solid and Steal the Show. They've been translated into 29 languages and been on the bestseller lists of the NY Times and Wall Street Journal among others.

Clients include Disney, Best Buy, Guardian, Olympians, Navy Seals, FBI agents, Astronauts and thousands of others who care deeply about making a difference in the world.

He's also our guest for this episode of Freelance to Founder.

But once he embraced the possibilities, his ‘project’ ultimately took on a whole new life and scaled far beyond his expectations, even his own dreams.

We are very excited to bring this interview with Michael Port, who is the author of a ground-breaking book on business development called ‘Book Yourself Solid’.

In this episode, you're going to get to know Michael really well.You'll hear about his early life and how it played into what he does for a living now. You'll hear how and why he pivoted from acting. You'll hear how he found his first clients when he did break out on his own as a trainer and teacher. You’ll learn how ‘Book Yourself Solid’ led to the formation of Heroic Public Speaking, a transformational workshop program that teaches people how to communicate far more effectivelyAnd you're going to get numerous insights on communication and public speaking as a bonus. 

We hope you enjoy this episode of Freelance to Founder with Michael Port.
