Ep 189 Live Coaching: Dealing with Crippling Fear of Speaking, Maid of Honor Speech Jitters

Here's a brand new live coaching episode! On today's show, we'll hear from a financial advisor who has no problem working one to one with clients and now wants to create workshops to promote her work, but feels crippling fear around speaking to groups. How to handle this??

My second guest has committed to giving a maid of honor speech at her sister's wedding and is looking for tips and tricks for regaining confidence, relieving anxiety, and finding the right timeframe for the speech. After taking more than a year off from presenting in general and at work, she's feeling rusty and anxious about speaking in front of a big crowd. What can be done to prepare and give a great speech?

Find out on today's live coaching episode!
