Featured Speaker for Audience Takes the Stage at Creative Mornings
"You should totally submit a talk for this!"
"I don't know. I'm not even sure what I would talk about. Plus, speaking in front of people makes me nervous."
"That's exactly WHY you should do it!"
::cue exaggerated sigh and awkward face::
This is how it started. A frequent attendee of Creative Mornings, a monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types (including entrepreneurs, developers & crafters), I'll admit I was skeptical submitting a talk for their Audience Takes the Stage in December. They have amazing talks each month so it's intimidating.
The theme was "Context" and when I finally came up with an idea, I wasn't expecting to be asked to expound on it. But there I was on a phone call with Creative Mornings going over logistics and listening to a much needed pep talk. Alright, it's a 5 minute speech. I got this, after all.
I felt less nervous when I found out that my friend Meredith was also asked to speak -- yay social support! After listening to the four other talks at Audience Takes the Stage the day of, I felt pretty honored to get to share the stage with four amazing individuals in the San Diego community.
I'm continually impressed by the Creative Mornings community, their authenticity, and desire to connect with others. If you missed the talks or want to re-live the day, click play on the video below!
