How to Help Your Shy Kid Become Confident and Bold with Fred Joyal

April 21, 2022

Don’t you want your child to follow their dreams and seize all the opportunities that life has to offer? Try new things, explore the world, start a new business, fall in love, and become the best possible version of themselves? In order for that to happen, we need to set a good example for them and create an environment where they can thrive!

The problem is - being bold isn’t always easy! Boldness is confidence in action. Take risks. Try something new!

Fred Joyal is an author, speaker, entrepreneur, and business advisor. He co-founded the most successful dentist referral service in the country, 1-800-DENTIST. He has previously written two books on marketing, has dabbled in standup and improv comedy, acted in bad movies and excellent TV commercials. His latest book, Superbold: from Under-confident to Charismatic in 90 days, is an Amazon and Wall Street Journal bestseller. He once beat Sir Richard Branson in chess and was also a question on Jeopardy. He is an avid cyclist, a below-average tennis player and an even worse golfer. He lives in Los Angeles and skipped 2nd grade because he was so smart.

Bold individuals seize life in remarkable, almost unbelievable ways. They succeed in business, in careers, and in love, and they have a great time doing it. Bold people walk up to supermodels and ask them to dance. They stand in front of audiences and tell jokes. They start companies. They run for president.

What surprises most people is that boldness can be taught. Fred Joyal started as an extremely shy person, too timid even to make a phone call, and transformed himself into someone who has done stand-up and improv comedy, spoken to audiences of 5,000, met dozens of celebrities, and, just by being bold, found love, joy, passion, and success.

And he’s here today to teach you how and in this episode you will learn:

  • Fred’s regrets from not being bold early on in life
  • How Fred grew up shy and how his mother did it all wrong
  • Whether we are born with confidence and boldness?
  • The difference between boldness and confidence
  • Tips to enhance social skills right away and how can we use them with kids and teens

“Nobody trains us to do what we do most and that is interact with people.” Fred Joyal
