Kit Pang is the Founder of Boston Speaks, a public speaking and presentation training company. The company was founded to help professionals propel themselves toward success through expert speaking skills and a higher level of self-confidence. Some of Kit’s robust clientele include Fortune 500 CEOs, TEDx Speakers, Three-Star Michelin Chefs, and NFL Players. When he’s not training clients, Kit is working as a Public Speaking and Communication Coach for Harvard Business School.


Kit joins me today to share how he learned to follow his own advice and the journey it led him. He explains why his current profession was his first hurdle and how he convinced himself to push through with a career in public speaking. He explains how a person nurtures their adult mindset and discusses how people are hesitant to take their own advice and how risk factors into it. Kit also describes how those with analysis paralysis can overcome it and finally get started.
