What's YOUR reason for speaking? For Work? School? Business? Knowing your why for anything is important. And in order for you to get to know me, you need to know MY why...

In 2013, I had my mental health to deal with, but a more pressing matter as well – the start of my criminal charge for Perjury (fancy word for lying). Fortunately, I have a mother who – even when I don't want to hear it – gives me advice that I don't even know that I need (so parents DO understand!) She always used to tell me: "Stand guard at the Gate of Thought". Change what goes in, and you change what comes out. Thanks to mom I heard words I needed to hear.
So I started to read....
.... and listen to Speakers. My absolute favourite became a speaker by the name of Les Brown. One day while listening to him, I heard more advice that I needed..."Do what you fear and the death of fear is certain." And what better to look into than something that everyone fears...Public Speaking!
