Public speaking has earned it’s place in the Fear Hall of Fame over and over again… each day with each person who does their own version of freaking out over stepping in front of the room to present, perform, interview or just have all eyes on them. I hear this from clients all the time.

I had to seize the moment and get her out of her comfort zone of “I don’t deserve to be heard.” This was an on-the-spot coaching opportunity, and with her permission, I brought her to the front of the room.
Her nervous smile revealed what we all knew,

I had my usual backstage pass taking care of the speakers before they went on, and the opportunity to watch the faces of the audience as they experienced each speaker.

What does it take for a Nurse Practitioner to drop everything to provide healthcare for those in need in Honduras? Just a simple ask.
