Yay me! I am finally writing my very first blog. Thanks for sharing this moment!
In starting this blog, I want to lay a couple of ground rules. While, I believe it is important to "agree to disagree," I would like for these posts to be informative and uplifting. Please do not speak uncharitably about fellow bloggers and try to remain as positive as possible. We experience enough 'yuck' in our daily lives that I would like for this to be a safe haven of information and inspiration.
I have been meeting some fabulous people recently and I am always in amazement at how many people are paralyzed to speak about what they do in their professions or even their passions and hobbies. Wonderful business professionals who appear to have all their ducks in a row that are mortified to speak in front of people.
I'd like to find out from you all reading this what it is about speaking with, or in front of people that intimidates you the most.
I'll start out.... Now, before you even think it, I will tell you that I have been fearful of presenting things in front of people. I've had the butterflies in my stomach and that feeling of "what did I get myself into?" So, don't think I haven't been there. For me, I was afraid of the judgment I might receive... even in presenting things I knew backwards and forwards. This has been my biggest challenge. Now, I want to hear from you...
What is it about speaking in front of people that you find most intimidating?
