This Week’s Episode

“Butterflies” – that feeling of clammy hands, racing heart, queasy stomach when you are about to do something you feel nervous about. All speakers go through this experience; I know I did especially when I was starting out. But will it ever go away?

In this episode, I share how we, as speakers, leaders, and communicators should deal with the butterflies. I have a story to tell, let’s hear it!
