You might be wondering what I’ve been up to. I’ve been on a hunt to ignite my voice through public speaking. This is very challenging to me. To anyone that knows me knows that I love the camera but hate the replay. I’m highly obsessed with audio recordings and my recorded voice. Why do I shy away from facebook live video?
Chile, this is just not me. I hate videos but I love being on camera. I hate to see myself on camera if that makes sense. It’s a challenge I have to push through on this journey of public speaking. How many of you feel the exact same way? It’s hard seeing yourself doing what you love to do. Even the famous actors and actresses hate the replay. We do it because we ignite the fire of playing characters who deserve a voice.
Someone needs to hear what we have to say to edify their spirit, to help them on the same journey, to solve a problem, and to uplift them when faced with adversity. What we fear that’s obsolete we have to do anyway. Let that fear be fuel to the fire that burns with all of our desires and goals. This journey has it’s ups and downs as I prepare to use my voice to uplift others and help them through their toughest times. We all have been through something. We all are going through something. Use each and every story to impact someone.
Yes, I am starting a podcast series called Hidden Below See Level. Everything that makes us who we are is hidden below what we SEE in ourselves and others. Maybe if we saw what’s under the surface then the perception at face value would deteriorate. I’m telling you, use your platform to speak up. Use your pens to vote out misguided or ill-willed politicians. We all know how it feels to not make it, see someone gunned down, have a loved one pass away through sickness, feel inadequate in areas. We also know things that others don’t but need to know, have a career insight that could help someone navigate through theirs, or just using your degrees and knowledge so that someone won’t make your mistakes. Use your voice!
Here are some tools that have helped me on my speaker’s journey.
- The Speaker Lab (love their speaking fee calculator.
- Agent (I love their growth tools directly to your e-mail and applying for speaking engagements)
This is an interesting journey that I am on and I hope you all can go on this ride with me through every episode of this series.
