The Virtual Campfire

When you see someone on stage: Sharing a powerful message, "owning the room" and, having a huge impact in the world, you might ask yourself, how did they get that way? Were they born that way? Could I be like that person? What makes them different? From the outside looking in, it seems like they are meant to do what they're doing. I'm here to share what you don't often see - their tales of transformation. That's what we'll uncover here. The tiny steps that led to the big leaps.

Welcome to The Virtual Campfire, I’m Tony Martignetti, the Inspired Coach. Here I’ll share powerful lessons learned from leaders in their transformation journey. Why the campfire? The campfire was the earliest form of community. For generations, it was used to build trust, share knowledge, and inspire others. That is why it is time for us to sit by the virtual fire and have a powerful conversation.
