We’ve all heard it. “You got a voice, so use it!” or “There’s a story within each of us!” Or as Oprah would say, “Speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have!” Yet, for many of us, speaking, especially public speaking, scares the crap out of us. We’re afraid we’re not good enough, or that we don’t have something that will interest people, or even worse, that even when we do speak, it will come out all wrong. That’s all your own bullshit so get over it. It’s time to own your voice and speak…maybe even as a career.

Now he’s a highly successful speaker, and creator of TheSpeakerLab.com, Booked and Paid To Speak training program and host of the highly popular podcast, The Speaker Lab.
