In this episode we'll be learning from Antonio Neves. Antonio is a top motivational speaker, workplace engagement expert, and author of the bestselling book, Stop Living on Autopilot: Take Responsibility for Your Life and Rediscover a Bolder, Happier You.

When Antonio Neves was four years old, he found himself in his kitchen with police officers and a choice: Did he want to stay with his dad, or leave with his mom?

These days Antonio is an author, an award-winning journalist, a coach, and keynote speaker. In today's episode he shares about recovering from childhood wounds, seeking achievement as a way to cope, and getting comfortable in your own skin.

Key takeaways:

  • How sharing personal struggles creates deeper connections.
  • The ways early childhood abandonment and neglect can deeply impact the person you grow into.
  • How Antonio became comfortable sharing more of his authentic self in the workplace
  • Why expressing your authentic, unconventional self makes you compelling
