Public speaking can be a crippling fear. I wonder how many of us it keeps from really reaching our full potential. I've had to get a handle on my own fears around speaking and performing in public.

It gave me confidence because it forced me to practice. My guest today, Dr. Charmaine Gregory, started a podcast. Dr. G is an...


169: It's Not a Priority if It's Not a Practice
