It took me three months to finally come to terms with the worst professional speaking engagement I’ve had of my life. It was really, really bad. I blogged about it here. I almost gave up and stopped speaking completely.
I did pretty good last year, brushing off the dust and getting back into a groove as a professional speaker. I guess what I really did was get some confidence back.
Last month I spoke 13 times in 4 days, and it was awesome. The 12th presentation I did was to the National Speakers Association chapter in Minneapolis. It’s always scary to speak to professional speakers because I feel like they are critiquing my style more than listening to my message.
It was fabulous.
Thank goodness for good people to help us know that we are doing alright!
