Former pro basketball player and current motivational speaker Walter Bond was a guest on Monday's Mike Bastinelli show.

Walter Bond played college ball at the University of Minnesota, and in the pros with Dallas, Detroit and Utah. He also played in Italy and for a short time with the CBA's Yakima Sun Kings.

Bond is now a motivational speaker, booking over 100 speaking appearances every year in the United States and internationally.

Billed as "America's  Accountability" Leader, Bond touched on his college career, his time in pro ball, and how he trained himself as a motivational speaker.

One of his quotes is "confidence is arrogance under control." meaning you have to believe in yourself to succeed and that you can compete with anyone.
