Loved your interview. Tons of great advice. I have a question. You said to not memorize your talk. To just know the key points and stories. So it is more real and spontaneous. What if you have a hard time remembering? Is it ok to have notes on stage with you? little cards in your hand or something? thanks again for the interview. Loved it
Great information. Wonderful speaker!
I have written my book and need assistance in marketing and speaking engagements. How can I get assistance with fulfilling my dream. My research supports the CROWN Act and this is a hot topic currently.
