Before becoming a speaker, Patricia Fripp was a hairstylist. Building a successful hairstyling business helped her eventually build a successful business as a speaker and trainer. In this episode, Fripp lays down a template for developing your public speaking superpowers, as well as sharing a bit of the history of women in speaking.
Patricia Fripp’s Big Tip: “You have to understand what you do naturally well,” Fripp says. “Even if it’s as simple as you understand yourself.” To help you, you need to seek an objective third party who understands speaking and isn’t attached to glossing over your missteps.
