Byron Dempsey’s vision of success is about making changes.

As host of the Driven Young podcast, Byron Dempsey prepares youngsters for topics not discussed in school. No one seems to teach networking and financing skills in the classroom. That’s why Byron’s podcast is an eye-opener. It’s really awesome to see what an inspiration my good friend has become as a podcaster.

In this week’s episode, Byron talks about how his vision of success has changed after starting a podcast. When he first started, he thought renowned guests and popular topics would bring him to the top. Over time he realised that listeners want interesting stories from authentic people, regardless of social status. That “aha” moment happens in regular conversation. You can send the same message with different wording, you just have to change your thinking to figure out the greatest effect.

Also in this episode: decorative image containing the quote If you can capture the “aha” moment and the conversations like that, that’s your marketing material.
