I’ve been speaking to groups since I was 17 years old. I was a summer camp counselor, giving a devotion to a cabin of 10 year olds. I was nervous, excited, and didn’t know what was going to happen.

In a survey, people acknowledged their biggest fear as public speaking. #2 was death! Jerry Seinfeld shares a great line about this, “That means if you’re at a funeral, you would rather be in the casket than giving the eulogy!”

The butterflies still exist, but now I get excited about the opportunity to speak to a group, especially young men and women. Since that first devotion I have given hundreds of talks, lectures, and workshops about a variety of subjects.
