Please read on!

Public Speaking Super Powers is more than just an ordinary book … it is a mission and movement, as well.

It may be starting with a book, but it has also grown to include audio programs, training programs and even an educational outreach program to help nascent and budding entrepreneurs in high school and college learn public speaking skills that will serve them for life … no matter what they choose to do.

At least this is my big vision for this project.

But I need your help. I’ve been working on this project since 2010, giving it the good college try to bring this vision to life by myself. Alas, I have discovered that I am, in fact, not Wonder Woman or Super Girl.

I need help to get this project completed. And that’s where YOU come in.

As of this morning, I’ve launched a crowdfunding campaign on VolumeBee.com to raise the funds I need to complete this project.

I’ve broken down the funds needed into three categories … but before I tell you want I want, let me tell you a little bit about what you’ll get in return!

Featured Speaker Interview Sample: C.C. Culver

C.C. CulverC.C. Culver has more than 25 years experience as a speaker. A former software engineer that has worked on NASA missions, she currently coaches people about public speaking, helping them gain confidence and experience.

In this sample excerpt of my interview with C.C. for Public Speaking Super Powers, she talks about her journey to public speaking success, as well as answering the question: Is public speaking a learned skill or is it something you are born with? “You’ve got the power to really communicate with people and there’s really nothing to be afraid of,” says C.C. “They’re just as afraid as you are. And that’s really what it’s about. It’s overcoming fear.”

 
You can also find this sample interview on Spreaker.

“I just want to convey this message that you do have the power, because inside of you, you’re a unique person and you have the unique ability that communicate in a way no one else does. That uniqueness gives you the ability to share with people through another lens, another paradigm of how you might see things, that might alter and bring about some unique qualities, some unique ideas and even ways of getting things done, that someone may not have thought about before. That could be the answer to a lot of things. So you have the power. It’s a matter of getting through that fear, I think, to get it out.”

In this sample excerpt of my interview with Joe for Public Speaking Super Powers, he talks about his journey to public speaking success, as well as a little about what he believes his “super power” to be. “What differentiates me is I think a knack, a superpower for finding that connection between a message and some kind of visual representation of that, some example or visual metaphor for a message so that people can hold onto it and remember it.”

“I believe there’s such a thing as gift and people who are gifted at certain things, but that shouldn’t let those who are pursuing excellence in an art, including public speaking, it shouldn’t let them be disuaded or discouraged, because everyone has room to improve. Even the gifted are always seeking to improve. So the question may be isn’t what’s the top plateau that’s available, but what’s going to help you push through your personal record so far?”
