ROUND 11 OF SCAVENGING BEGINS!
Each month I will scour the interwebz looking for the best articles on public speaking.
I'll be looking for topics like these:
- Overcoming the fear of public speaking
- Presentation tips
- Body language and other technical speaking tips
- And anything in between...
I'm looking for the interesting, the fascinating, the practical, and anything with worthwhile information to help you become a better communicator.
The best of the freaking best!
The purpose is to save you time. A lot of what's out there can get repetitive and end up wasting your time.
Don't worry, though, I'm doing the scavenging so you don't have to. It will ALL be right here for you.
Grab a churro and get reading.

Some want to speak for the sake of being able to. Some undertake public speaking for the confidence they'll gain from conquering their fears. Both are worthy reasons.
On the other hand, there are many that aspire to become professional speakers so that they can change the world and earn some cash at the same time. This article was written for those individuals. Appearing on Entrepreneur.com and written by Kimanzi Constable, check out the article here.

These tips come from Judge James D. Peterson of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin. In-depth and well-worth your time. Here is the article.
