I met Emilio Ron at an event for public speakers. We started talking and he invited me to be a guest on his new podcast, Inspirational Chronicles.

The following fits into the conversation we recorded: He invited me to record in the studio he set up. Somehow, despite living in Manhattan, I agreed to take the train—not even the subway, but the Long Island Railroad—all the way out to Long Island, where he had to drive me from the station to the studio. Manhattanites expect the world to come to us!

Once I saw the studio I could tell he cared about his project and knew I’d enjoy the conversation. I enjoyed it from before we started recording.

In the end, I’m honored to have been one of his early guests and look forward to seeing him and his podcast grow.

The conversation was close and personal. Since he had started reading my book, Leadership Step by Step, we covered some of its topics more deeply than in most other podcasts. If you’ve started the book, you’ll get extra value out of the conversation.

We also went longer than originally planned (he was driving into Manhattan later to go salsa dancing, so I missed my return train for a ride back), so he split the conversation into two parts.
