One of the best ways to build your business is by speaking in public. It increases your visibility, attracts new customers, and establishes you as the expert in your field. Whether you're a professional public speaker, entertainer, real estate agent, lawyer, contractor, or a plumber, everyone can benefit from speaking to the right audience.
There are some very intelligent and articulate people who tend to clam up when put in front of an audience, and I believe the reason is fear. Maybe it's the fear of failure, the fear of embarrassment, or the fear that others may think that they don't know what they're talking about. This is normal. Everyone who first gets up in front of an audience has these fears. The way to conquer these fears is to actually do it. The only way to get better as a public speaker is to speak often. Practice and repetition are the key elements to becoming a great public speaker.
