    “I Don’t Know What To Say When I Start Recording!”

      In my last post I discussed why it’s a bad idea to script your presentation because the way we speak is very different from the way we write.  You can read the post HERE. It’s a quick read. I did get some feedback on that post. Most revolved around step 1: Record Yourself | …

    You Can’t Write And Talk At The Same Time

    Writing and talking are two completely different skills. When you feel nervous about presenting, you may want to make yourself feel better by writing out everything you’re going to say. Sounds like a good idea, I know. Unfortunately, it’s not. The main reason is because the way we talk is very different from the way we …

    15 Signs You Have Performance Anxiety And Don’t Realize It

    Performance anxiety aka stage fright is something I know very well. For many years my stomach would clench whenever the spotlight turned to me. After getting a handle on my own fear, I now help clients learn to communicate effectively when all eyes are on them. Facing fear is tough and you can tell yourself …

    When You Get Scared, Don’t Shrink, GO BIG!

    When I was studying voiceover, I took a number of improv classes. They were a lot of fun even with my horrible stage fright. All was fine, until one day we got a sign-up for a 2-day musical improv class. Hmm, how bad could it be? It was just one weekend. To this day, it’s …

    How To Shine On Camera!

    It’s Time For Your Close-Up! Many years ago, I was taking an on-camera class as a compliment to my voiceover training.  What you learn when you train as a voiceover actor is that agents don’t just want a one-stop shop. They really want someone that can do voiceover, print and on-camera work. So even if …

    How To Process Your Feelings

    “Anger, without exit, is poison.” ~ Mary D. Unfortunately it’s been another tragic week. So much has been written, posted, discussed on the topic of gun violence and yet it continues to happen. If you’re feeling depressed, overwhelmed, consumed with rage, or all of the above, you may need a way to process and articulate …

    Let’s Ban “How About This Weather?” Small Talk Topics To Jump Start Any Conversation

    As you know, the holidays are full of parties and family/friend get-togethers. But sometimes just the thought of starting a conversation with new people can make me want to head straight for the bar and the nearest wall (preferably by an exit). I used to think that I was the only one that found small talk anxiety …

    The Good, The Bad and The Ugly | How to Use EFT Effectively!

    EFT aka Tapping is a great modality to release angst, anger, frustration, or sadness. Clients that apply it consistently love the results. Although many will admit that it’s “weird” (at first). But let’s say you tried EFT and it just didn’t work for you. It was okay, you felt a little better but you’re just not …

    Scared of Speaking In Public? It’s Not a Lack of Confidence!

    I need to finally clear up a BIG misconception about the fear of public speaking. One that I hear and read about A LOT. The misconception is that those of us with stage fright, social anxiety, highly sensitive or whatever other label you want to put on it, lack confidence. It’s crap. Those of us …

    Being Authentic Isn’t As Easy As It Seems

    The other day a friend joyfully told me she had broken wide open. “What do you mean” I asked. She said she went from being someone who was afraid to sing to singing all the time (she had left me a singing voicemail which I loved)! She felt herself completely connecting with the strangers around …
