William Hung knows a little bit about facing down different kinds of fear and taking risks. 

You may recognize my guest from that time when his American Idol audition went viral, but William has a message that goes beyond his time in show business. 

Attending UC Berkeley for civil engineering, an unexpected meteoric show business career, a civil servant working for the city of Los Angeles, experience as a professional poker player, and now as a motivational speaker, William has embraced risk and managed fear throughout his whole life. 

And he opens up today about his mindset and thinking which has helped him navigate through his unconventional life so far.  

What’s Inside:

  • How William decides the difference between calculated risk and recklessness.
  • One of the most valuable lessons William has learned from his mentor and coach.
  • The systems William has put in place to optimize his time and energy.
  • Having a trusted person in his corner helped him refocus when he was struggling 
  • How he’s shifting to professional speaking and coaching, and why this has been an important pivot for him to make.
