The book also comes in audio format to listen to!

It has so much of what you need to learn, how to prepare, what to say, what not to say, and so much more.

My next guest, Bart Smith, is the author of 20+ self-help books, which include topics covering business, networking, motivation, speaking, relationships, personal development, romance erotica and cooking! He's written a fabulous full-color cookbook called Who's Hungry? Wow! Oh, he also makes the world's best chocolate chip cookies, which he brings with him into the studio when he's being interviewed (or he'll mail them ahead of his interviews). Folks, please welcome my next guest, Bart Smith.
