Do it scared

This is me with Pat Flynn at the first Podcast Movement in 2016.

My friend who took this pic was probably as nervous as I was to get the shot. Blurry, but hey, I got the Pat selfie!

I was on his podcast Ask Pat 3 times, (actually 4 if you count a video question I asked in 2015) and let me tell you, I was scared each time!

I wanted to barf, and thought, "OMG, I can't do this, I'm going to mess up my words, I'm going to make a fool of myself."



Did I mess up? Did I make a fool of myself?

Yes, I tripped over my words, but a fool? I'll leave that up to you, my dear listener. :)

When I listened to the second episode I was featured on, I was wondering where I had the "total meltdown" I believed I had.

The funny thing is, I couldn't find it.

What can feel horrible and fatal to us, usually doesn't translate with that same intensity to others. No one can feel our heart pounding in our chest.

When you need a little boost to ask that "big" name to be on your podcast or to be a guest on theirs, what is the worst that could happen? They say no. That's about as dramatic as it gets.

So ASK, and see what happens. That person you might be fan-girling is a human just like you.

You can check out all my episodes with Pat here.

And here's an episode to give you a little encouragement to just speak your truth. Tell your story and get out of your own way ...
