I LEARNED HOW TO MOVE BEYOND MY ANXIETY AND FEAR
Beyond Applause: Make a Meaningful Difference through Transformational Speaking helped me on a very practical level to take my core idea – the one I am called to share – and to transform it into a clearly articulated, refined and powerful message. I learned how to move beyond my anxiety and fear in order to bring this message out into the world where I can make the largest positive impact. I recommend this book to anyone who is on a similar quest.
