Dale J. Spencer Shares “Fear Not” Philosophy, Part II

1. Fear of public speaking is rated as the number 1 fear of most people, even above the fear of death.  Did you experience any fear when you began public speaking, and if so, how did you overcome it?

If someone had told me back in high school or college that I would willingly become a public speaker, I would have laughed myself silly.   Throughout high school and most of college, whenever I was presented with a public speaking situation, I would go completely blank after about 25 seconds.  I would then skulk back to my seat, a failure.  After my injury, a professor asked me to speak about what had happened to me before a group of 600,   I thought, “Was this guy crazy?

Bartlett keynote speaker delivers motivation

By Kim Mikus

“Q: What has been the most difficult obstacle in running a small business?”

A: Making the decision to start a career as a keynote speaker couldn’t happen overnight, so I’m continuing with my real estate profession at the same time.  I have been balancing two careers since I made that pivotal decision.  In order to progress successfully, I have relied on my

perseverance and the important concept of time management. Some may say it is difficult, maybe improbable, to “juggle” Bartlett Rotary 0510 11two careers. In my opinion, if you have the drive to be happy in every aspect of your life, then you must take the appropriate steps to achieve these goals.
