The truth is, I hate speaking in public. I hate it. You would’t think I do being in such an outgoing industry. Most recently, I spoke at Social Media Week Miami in February and my stomach was in knots until I opened my big mouth. I’m a chatter box who enjoys putting others in the spotlight but don’t necessarily enjoy the spotlight myself. So when the opportunity came up to submit a presentation for Ignite Miami, I didn’t think of my fear - instead I decided to ignore my fear which has become a natural ability I’m proud to finally possess. Overcoming the fear of speaking in public is on my bucket list.
In 5 minutes and 20 slides I’m going to speak about a topic I’m passionate about and hope to “Ignite Miami” about achieving their ultimate long term goals: checking off the coveted experiences on one’s bucket list.
Life should be spontaneous but as adults, it’s easy to slip into the mundane routine. In 5 minutes and 20 slides, I will present some key insights on how to live with intention and cross off those far-fetched bucket list items.
Inspired by the book What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? by The Buried Life and my overall zest for living my best life - which includes doing what you love, surrounding yourself with people you love and living a life you you love. I’m no expert but I have 5 minutes on stage to ignite you so I’m going to speak from a place of love and passion.
The event is free, open to the 21+ public on Tuesday, May 29 at The Stage Miami. You’re invited to watch me face my fear and hopefully ignite you.
