Stage Fright - How To Work Through It

Sunday, Nov. 10 | 1:00pm ET (12:00pm CT)

“Help! They’re Looking At Me!”

If you get sweaty, anxious, discombobulated being in front of people…whether giving a presentation, a toast at a wedding, in social setting…or are a performer of ANY kind looking to be more yourself in front of an audience….this workshop is for you. Practical techniques for working from the ‘inside-out’ and ‘outside-in’ will be presented and you WILL walk away with more ease and comfort in your own skin. An open mic will follow in which you can practice your new skills….if you desire. I’ve got years of experience to share. Come on….join me….safe and supportive environment provided!
