I grew up an introvert.
Hunched over behind a computer in the late 90s, writing lines of code, hoping I never had to talk to anybody.
If you would have told me that one-day people would pay me $10,000+ to give a keynote presentation to an audience of hundreds…
I would have laughed my ass off and called you an offensive word.
…Then I would have vomited.
Right on the floor.
Public speaking TERRIFIED the absolute %^&* out of me!
The thought of speaking to an audience made my stomach churn to the point of making me sick.
But with time, I learned the value of pushing myself outside of my comfort zone.
That it was possible to overcome fear.
And that out of the ashes of my terror, I could find confidence.
So going back 10+ years, I began to challenge myself to face my fear and learn public speaking. It’s been a long, difficult journey, but damn it’s been rewarding.
From a fumbling, nervous wreck to a confident speaker, I now want to share with you the greatest lessons I’ve learnt.
Here are 5 tips for beginners to improve public speaking… FAST!
“Oh he’s a natural”, they say.
Nope. I did my reps at the microphone, worked that public speaking muscle and practiced.
Now I consider public speaking my art form.
It’s my side business, a hobby that pays for me to fly around the world, meet amazing people and bring home a 5-digit paycheck.
If you’re a beginner… if you’re afraid of public speaking like I was…
Then I hope this video shows you that you can learn to speak confidently, to be entertaining and to provide massive value in a 1-to-many format.
