MOXIETALK'S MISSION: to inspire, educate and engage the human spirit one guest at a time.


Welcome to MoxieTalk, where we give you an intimate look into the courage, character, and defining moments of today’s most inspiring individuals.

MoxieTalk began as Leadership Landscape TV, an interview talk show to showcase the vision and influence of leaders and role models from all walks of life.

Today, MoxieTalk is a multimedia platform that continues this unique and intimate format on a national scale.

MOXIE: force of character, determination, nerve, and ability to face difficulty with spirit and courage

What does it take to be a guest on MoxieTalk with Kirt Jacobs you might ask?

  • An individual who exhibits their own form of MOXIE by trying, often failing, trying again and often, but not always, failing again.
  • An individual that repeats the above process often no matter how long it takes to achieve their goals.
  • An individual that displays persistent MOXIE time and again over the course of their respective life journey.
