Welcome to the ninth episode of The Sandbox, a podcast for those who want to live the best version of their life and are seeking the skills, strategy, and mindset to do just that.
Today’s guest is Geoff King, a communication expert and all around great human. In this episode, Geoff and I discuss why we believe effective communication is the number one skillset that everyone should be investing time into mastering. Geoff shares some of his insights he’s learned from growing his real estate business, being President of a Toastmasters club, and competing and coaching in speech and debate.
This episode is perfect for those who are looking to keep themselves relevant in a world where clear communication can make a huge difference. I hope you enjoy it!
