Interview with Justin Falk

Justin Falk

A Challenging Experience on Stage, How Facing Your Fears Is Overrated, And How Enmeshment can affect your career with Jack Ferguson.

The tables have turned on this episode of the podcast. Host Jack Ferguson is now the interviewee, and Justin Falk of Talent Vine is the interviewer.

Justin managed to drag plenty of insights out of this conversation about challenging times in business including how a scarring performance in front of 2000 people still causes Jack problems with presenting in a business setting today.

You’ll learn why Jack feels that facing your fears is overrated, what he has learned from the podcast after 30 episodes, advice on whether or not he thinks you should start one and why. We also delve into the unexpected benefits of hosting and building a podcast.

Justin asks Jack about his Reality TV experience and what that taught him about focus (surprisingly), how enmeshment has made it difficult for him to conduct business in the way he knows he needs to, and why he is passionate about facing the demons that are still crippling you from your childhood.
