Recently I have found a new passion and joy in being my own boss. As of now I have been jobless since November of 2013 and I love it.
The freedom is un explainable. I live on the water right next to a park, across the street from a Starbucks and walking distance to a movie theatre. Life can’t get better than that.
Well it can be a bitch if you don’t have a plan. I’m talking about the true entrepreneurial life.
I am now forced to eat the food I hunt. Every client I get, deal I close, or ebook I sell is paying for daily expenses, bill, vices, adventures.
We all think how it would be to give an inspirational speech in front of hundreds of people. Most people cringe at the thought of standing on that stage, all eyes on them. But the truth is, speaking publicly is good for you.
According to National Institute of Mental Health, 74% of people are more afraid of public speaking than they are of dying. Makes you think. What’s so scary about speaking in front of total strangers.
I did my first TEDx talk in 2013 and it was an emotional roller coster. From the initial invite email, to me getting on stage, I was nervous wreck.
TED is a global brand that can have many benefits for your brand. It is an awesome conversation starter and it’s great when people randomly show your talk at events and gathering. My TEDx Talk: How To Find Your Passion and Inner Awesome has over 190,000 views on Youtube and drives a lot of traffic to my website.
