Would it be OK if I told you my story?
When I was a kid I stuttered horribly. My parents tried desperately to help me. They would say, “Carl … Stop! Start again!”
This went on for sometime until I eventually stopped speaking altogether. Except for in school where, like all kids, I had to stand up and read either from a book or a book report.
Speaking TERRIFIED ME!
At age 12 I entered speech therapy with a small group of boys my age. We all came from different schools, but we all had one thing in common: WE HATED SPEAKING! Because we all stuttered and stammered.
Two years later, I was ‘cured.’ Truth be told there is no cure for stuttering. Luckily I overcame it. Or shall I say I learned a very valuable lesson. It’s a BIG one. I share this and help my clients with this all the time:
The only person in control of your speaking is you!
Yes, it’s YOU who controls the outcome of your speaking. It’s a lesson I still carry with my today. Now, don’t get me wrong. As a broadcaster I’ve learned a lot too. I’ve learned how to ‘say it with fewer words’ and ‘tell it like it is.’ The foundation though of everything I’ve accomplished as a broadcaster, and now as a speaker, all goes back to that on nugget I learned way back in speech therapy. It helped me A LOT…and I know, like I know, like I know, it can also help you. If you are committed go growing your business by speaking more about what it is you do, then it will indeed help you.
It’s time for you to take control of your speaking, of your business. Be the expert. Let me show you how you can not only gain the confidence to speak but also make more money doing so! For over 20 years speaking has been my game. Let me show demonstrate how to make it something that allows you to take a quantum leap and achieve your goals.
