If you had known C.C. Culver in grade school, you would never have thought she’d make a career of speaking. Voted one of the most shy children in school, she had to seek help just to be able to communicate with others in general. However, she did overcome her speaking challenges and has become an accomplished speaker.
Culver takes an almost spiritual approach to speaking, believing that everyone has the seeds of a good speaker inside them. In this episode, she talks about uniqueness, connecting with the audience with love and overcoming adversity to achieve your purpose and vision.
C.C. Culver’s Big Tip: Let go of your monkey mind chatter and empty your mind. This allows you to be present and connect more effectively with people one-on-one and with an audience.
