Did you know some studies have shown that fear of public speaking ranks up there with the fear of snakes or spiders?
This doesn’t surprise me.
Public speaking scares me as much as spiders... and spiders really scare me. So why in the hell did I volunteer to speak at a company meeting tomorrow? I could have easily conducted a webinar by phone where I didn't have to see the audience. I could have even suggested and encouraged the main speaker to incorporate what I would say into his own presentation... but no. I had to open my big mouth and volunteer to present myself. Fuck.
Wish me luck please.
