Public Speaking is a pretty big fear for many people, on top of so many other things we want to accomplish in life.

We fear failure and rejection. Some people fear heights or roller coasters... you name it.

So how do we face these fears and learn to deal with them?

I grew up dealing with Tourette Syndrome, and didn't learn until I was older that I had it. It was a cloud hanging over me for a very long time. Rejection, fear of being in crowds, fear of never succeeding; they all hung over me.

I learned not to let it define me or limit me. One of the areas I have not allowed it to limit me is in public speaking. I also run a company and deal with people every single day.

So what advice do I have for anyone looking to get over their fears and take on public speaking, or any other fear they have? The same advice I have for how I got over my fear of roller coasters.

Join me and discover how you can take steps to put those fears aside and reach your potential!"
