How to Find Your Story & Build Confidence

With Ravi Rajani

Sharing in the excitement of our students’ success is such a privilege for our team at the Speaker Lab! Our Director of Student Success, Maryalice Goldsmith, is taking the mic for our Student Highlight series so you can hear directly from our students about their experiences and what they want you to know about growing your speaking business.

He credits (or blames!) his mom for directing him to a career on the stage after she made him attend dance lessons with his sister at age 8. While it wasn’t his favorite pastime, he learned the art of stage presence at a very young age, and the rest is history!

Working as a corporate banker, Ravi spent years leading and building sales teams in early-stage start-ups to build what he would describe as his “portfolio career.” In September 2020 he quit his full-time job and started his own speaking business. Understanding the risks, challenges, and rewards of taking this leap excited Ravi, and his unique intuition that this was his time helped pave the way.

During their conversation Ravi talks about investing in himself, how he found The Speaker Lab, and how he’s built relationships through building his business. Storytelling is his passion and Ravi shares his strategy of repositioning his offerings and redefining his niche to find success. His journey is unique, engaging, and will keep you on the end of your seat!

Also, guess what? Ravi is joining The Speaker Lab to lead his very own Virtual VIP Cohort! Interested to learn how you can be part of this opportunity? Click HERE.
