A lot of times I'll get asked how I got into speaking and training. My answer is… it' wasn't part of the plan.
I never set out to become a speaker and trainer. When I first got started in network marketing (almost 30 years ago)… I was scared to death to have a conversation with someone.
Let alone, stand on the platform and give a presentation. The funny thing is… back in the day we use to do “Saturday” training in front of live audiences.
(This was WAY before the internet and social media.)
One of the parts in the training was… “how to deliver our presentation“.
Now, everyone in the office was trained on how to do a live presentation. I was very shy about getting on the platform and wanted nothing to do with it.
Then one day, it happened…
During the presentation, we would take a little break. This was to clear some of the negative energy out of the room.

Now, here's the thing. I had been trained on how to give the presentation. I had seen this presentation hundreds of times. So even though I did not volunteer myself.
Ben was smart to volunteer me because he knew I was ready. Here's the thing… I was super nervous. My mouth was dry, I was sweating profusely,
I'm sure people could tell this was my first time.
But here's the thing…
