Today, I interview Marti MacEwan who says that although she was a successful speaker, there was a lack of satisfaction after speaking because there was a lingering fear of those eyes on her and the opinions of her audience. No amount of reassurance helped.
Marti learned to refocus her energy and was able to overcome stage fright by shifting her awareness and her expectations.
Marti who is a professional counselor and "Stage Fright Coach" had some fear of public speaking - the "normal" insecurity and nerves. But when she started to learn to sing solo, she had a complete meltdown. She had no idea where that panic was coming from, why it happened when it did, or what to do about it.
Figuring out how to be free of her "fear of public singing" led her to develop the Stage Fright Cure and a professional specialty of helping others be free of their fear of speaking or performing in any setting.
She has helped musicians, speakers, leaders, writers, business people and professionals be free of the limiting effects of stage fright.
