“There is nothing mysterious about learning to speak with confidence.  It is a craft that anyone – even you steely naysayers – can master with initiative, tenacity, and this step by step blueprint for success. 

I have also learned that the notion of someone being a “born speaker” is a myth.  Not even the most renowned speakers – Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton – fit into that category.  Gifted speakers make it look effortless, but it never is.  Speaking is an art that you develop and constantly hone.”
