I’ve been asked to speak at a local school that is having their “career day” in a couple of months about finding your own niche. I have to say that I have mixed emotions about doing that, so I’ve told them that I’d think about it. After all, it’s not like I’m one of those famous celebrity speakers or motivational speakers that get on the circuit of speaking engagements and get paid big bucks for their speeches! I’m not even really comfortable speaking in front of large audiences!
So I’m going to be doing some research on getting some good speaking tips to help me figure out what to say and do. My wife says she’ll help me by being my audience while I rehearse my speech. She told me to write my speech down, and to rehearse it on our video camera and then play it back to see how I’m coming across. I think that will help a lot! Isn’t technology wonderful!
