James Altucher, one of my favorite podcasters, published a post recently about improving public speaking skills. I love how he started the post:
I had to speak at TEDxSanDiego and five minutes before I went up I left the building and wasn’t planning on coming back.
He shares how he is so often terrified before he has to speak in public and points us to the powerful way he found to manage and overcome those fears.
He Studies Comedy!
Why? Why would he study comedians, why not professional public speakers? Well, she shares this reasons why, he admires that…
- The best comedians are the best public speakers.
- They know how to Act.
- They are fearless.
- They are funny.
- A great comedian has his or her own unique voice.
- Ability to observe.
I wanted to share this with you because I want you to be confident about pursuing speaking opportunities in your business.
Speaking of speaking opps… I'm on the hunt for Exposure & Profit Speakers for 2019!
